Gemma’s day gets worse, when, after she chastises Jax for bringing EJ to the clubhouse, he tells her he’s a little more worried about saying goodbye to Opie than fulfilling her need to be “loved, worshiped, and adored today”. Ouch! EJ twists the knife by telling Gemma all she did with Clay was rub his shoulders, and that SHE didn’t call the cops. Nero asks Jax to keep Carla at the club while he gets EJ out of town and squeezes Gemma’s hand tenderly before driving off with EJ. Jax tells Chibs to call up Skeeter, Charming’s favorite funeral home/crematorium director with questionable morals (is there any other kind?) and ask him to cut off a digit and a tit from an appropriate burnee. After he stomps off, Chibs walks over to Gemma and reminds her that Jax does love her more than anyone else in the world.
Tara knocks on the door to Jax’s room at the club (What? Just walk in — he’s your husband!) and comes in to find him going through old pictures. She sees some of him and Wendy during happier times and though he says he was planning to throw them out, Tara says they should keep them for Abel. Since that door is open, she brings up the idea of telling Abel who is biological mother is, but Jax refuses, since Abel has had so much drama in his young life already. Jax says he may reconsider — but only when Abel is much older.
The guys go outside to greet Opie’s body for the wake. Skeeter drives up in his hearse with Opie in a coffin in the back and CFP has brought Lyla in the tow truck. She’s understandably devastated and Jax hugs her. The guys bring Opie into the club and set him up on the church table, uncover the coffin and give Lyla some time with Opie’s body. Before Jax leaves the room, Lyla asks him how she’s supposed to survive with three kids and no support system on a part-time porn star’s salary. Jax points to all the people coming into the club for Ope’s wake, and tells her that they are her family now.
Jax leaves Lyla in peace and goes outside to greet Nero, who has just put EJ on a plane back to Indiana. He asks Nero to sit down with him for a business proposal. The short of it is, he wants Nero to start up his escort business again, using the desperate-for-more-money porn girls Jax knows from Cara Cara, in an unoccupied Elks Lodge for rent on the outskirts of town.
In exchange for the connections to the girls and fronting all the start-up costs, the Sons will get 50% of the profits from “Diosa Norte”, and hopefully both Jax & Nero will get closer to their dreams of financial freedom for the club and his family, for Jax, and enough money to buy a farm with tons of animals for Lucius, for Nero. The conditions they agree to meet to are: keeping Nero out of the guns and drugs, and dropping Nero’s burgeoning relationship with Gemma, so that this new business relationship can be fruitful without all the bullshit.
