Jax and the guys get to work getting poor Dawn out of the box so Tig can bring her with them. Back at Gemma’s, Juice and Clay have shown up to assess the damage to the house and Unser. When Unser repeatedly tells Clay that he doesn’t know where Gemma is and just came over to feed the bird, Clay doesn’t believe him and Unser lets him know that Gemma doesn’t share the details of her life with him like she used to do.
And I’m fine, by the way, Clay, thanks for asking.
Clay surmises that this is additional retaliation from the Oakland gangs, and Unser agrees that this makes sense.
Back at the scene of multiple crimes, Jax and Chibs are pouring some green flammable liquid (I thought it was engine coolant, but that doesn’t make sense) into the Box of Bodies, presumably to erase all forensic evidence that Tig and Dawn were there. Though Jax wants to take off right away, Bobby asks him to give Tig a minute, who’s rocking his daughter’s charred body back and forth. No fun in this … perfect time for the credits.
Jax lets Bobby know he’s called Luis and Romeo, their CIA undercover connections, trying to set up a meet, but hasn’t heard back. Bobby suggests calling Alvarez, but Jax nixes it, saying Romeo’s the only one who can save them from these charges. Jax gives Nero some walking around money, apologizing for disrupting his business with their shit, and Jax notes to Bobby that they might be in the wrong business, seeing how busy Nero’s escorts are.
We get to see Mr. Pope’s office, and I’m impressed …
The Mad Men set had some leftovers, so we jumped on that shit.
Art comes in to the office to report the shit that went down at the railyard, and the fact that the SoA “suspects” are still on the loose. He promises Pope that between their muscle and the Oakland PD, Jax, Chibs & Tig will be arrested soon.
Back at Diosa International, SoA has lawyered up and brought in Ally to review their case and find out what their options are:
Calamity Jane, I’ve missed your face! You look so nice on SoA, you know, when you’re sober and in makeup. Too bad Maureen Ashby isn’t in this season or we could have a real Deadwood reunion with Utter/Unser.
To the point: the guys have no options. Ally can buy them some time to scramble some protection for when they’re inside, but only if they turn themselves in by tonight. Jax gets a call from Clay, which he ignores, sends Chibs off to call Clay back, and then orders Gemma to go check on Tig, who’s practically catatonic over on the Diosa sofa.
For Tig’s sake, I hope that’s not a “therapy” sofa — if it is, he should probably lay down some plastic before sitting on it.
