In a less soul-killing confession, Jax tells Opie that he’s not keeping Clay alive out of some misguided loyalty to the crafty old coot, but because the IRA refuses to deal without Clay at the table. So now Opie knows that Jax is loyal to him, and not Clay. That offers cold comfort in comparison to the knowledge that Clay killed Piney maliciously, to protect his quality of life, rather than in self-defense, as he told Opie (and everyone else).
At Charming General (I thought that’d be an appropriate name for a hospital saddled with so much drama), Tara runs into Maggie on her way to the daycare to pick up Abel and asks Maggie to sign an approval form for her to do some volunteering at the Department of Corrections. Planning on busting out Jax? Or are you going to meet with Otto, you little minx? Maggie lets Tara know that Gemma is sitting outside the daycare, and Tara says she’ll handle it.
It’s a long conversation, but the short of it is that Tara tells Gemma to lay off or she’ll have Jax kill her.
He’s already in jail, so it’s no big.
Before Gemma can go get her own box of Donettes and crawl into Nero’s bed, Carla calls her from Diosa to let her know that Clay and Juice have shown up there for no apparent reason. Gemma says she’s on her way and hangs up.
At Diosa, Clay and his oxygen tank realize in short order that, even working together, they can’t beat Nero’s ass. So instead, Clay decides he’ll fuck the new rookie escort, Emma Jean (who is disgustingly played by Ashley Tisdale). I just threw up in my mouth a little. I guess if she’s screwing someone on this show, I’d prefer that it was Clay.
From High School Musical to GET OFF MY FUCKING FAVORITE SHOW, you Disney Channel cast-off!!!
Juice gets lucky, when Carla decides she’s bored and wants to give Nero a little payback. As she drags him off, Juice whispers to Carla, “Is [Nero] charging me?”
How do you say “cougar” en espanol?
The sergeant walks in to Jax’s and Opie’s cell, asking who the sacrifice will be, and Jax answers that they’re still making up their mind, since they want to “cover the spread.”
Sergeant no like gambling jokes. I on edge with useless substitute NFL refs. (Update: The old refs are back! Yay!)
The sergeant walks out of the cell without an answer, but not before telling Jax that he’ll pick the guy to die if Jax doesn’t.
At Diosa, no one wants to tell Gemma where Clay is. She finds him anyway, and this happens.
This is the Gemma I love! Do it again! I hear Selena Gomez blew Clay a few hours ago!
