Let me preface this recap by saying this is the kind of episode that makes you want to recover by curling up in bed with a box of powdered sugar “Donettes” (yes, you evil advertising execs, giving sugary doughnuts a petite-sounding name creates the illusion that I am inhaling fewer calories) and sob “I just can’t quit you, Show!” into your cold glass of milk.
Hostess … making everything better since 1919
Just me? I did have a stressful week.
lah198 posted in last week’s recap comments, “Supposedly someone important is going to die next week, any thoughts on who?” I guess I should not have ignored that question, because then I would have been better prepared. I am sad, sad ‘capper this week. We’ll start at the beginning …
The newest residents of the San Joaquin County Correctional Facility– Tig, Chibs, Jax and Opie — stroll into the community day room/bedroom/UFC ring. They see lots of Hispanic and black inmates, and no friendly faces. As the third string of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive line approaches our anti-heroes,
Ruh-roh! It’s pretty hard to intimidate in orange scrubs.
a group of Hispanic inmates tell the black guys to back off, and that word came “straight from the shoe” (Gasmii, little help?). The Hispanic leader tells Jax that he and his SAMCRO guys have a place with them.
Gemma comes to in Nero’s bed and is much kinder upon waking up there than last time this happened.
Too be fair, Nero looks much less scary in a black wifebeater than a white one.
Carla comes in and interrupts — again! Deja vu much? — with a request for Nero to meet with a rookie escort. Nero, there’s this thing called a “lock” and most people have it on their bedroom doors. Or you could put one of those charming “don’t come a’knockin’ ” signs on your door, too. Maybe the lack of a bedroom lock is on purpose, though …
Want to be the queso blanco in a Mexican sandwich, Gemma?
Back at SJCCF, the guys are assessing the situation. Chibs tells Jax that even though the Mexicans are offering protection, Damon Pope will find other ways to get at them inside, either through the Aryans or the guards. Don’t think Pope and the Aryans would have too much in common, even in their hatred for SAMCRO, but stranger things have happened, especially when there’s money involved. As a guard calls Jax to go with him, I guess we have our answer.
The Aryans must have politely declined Mr. Pope’s offer.
Back at the club, Bobby reports to Clay, Juice, CFP and Happy that he just got off the phone with Luis and the guys are safe for the time being, but Luis wants to meet with SAMCRO at Lindelhof Pines right away. Gemma walks up as the guys are leaving for the meet and gets filled in that the guys are safe and Tara knows that as well.
