At first, I think this scene is included to make Jax look presidential again, ordering people around, but then I realize he just wanted Gemma and Chibs gone so he could talk to Ally with just Tara and Bobby. Jax lets Ally know that they need to get the local charges dropped ASAP so they can be free to work with the feds and get off the chopping block for RICO (past crimes) and hopefully, the gun running (current crimes). Chibs comes over to tell them about the break-in at Gemma’s and Jax assumes it’s Pope again. He sends Bobby to bring Gemma home, assess the damage, and put club members on alert, and then tells Chibs they need to get Fawn’s Oakland address so they can protect “Tig’s spawn”.
Fawn and Dawn are Tiggy’s spawn. If Tig had a son, he would name him John.
Jax tells Ally to let Sheriff Roosevelt know that he, Tig, and Chibs would turn themselves in that evening at the club house and he would double her retainer to work on the Otto angle, proving Otto’s statements about Bobby were wrong so that she could get the RICO charges dropped.
Roosevelt comes to Clay & Gemma’s to file a report about the break-in, and asks again about this being retaliation for a slight against Pope or the Niners. Clay and Gemma claim ignorance, and Clay asks the sheriff to find his safe, which was taken by the thieves and had some cash in it, but mostly important documents, like birth certificates.
Back at Diosa, Jax tells Tara, “I gotta fix this.” Unfortunately for the viewing public, Jax is not referring to his hair.
Chibs comes over to report that they finally have the address where Dawn is staying, and it’s only 40 minutes from Diosa. Tara wants Jax to stay put, and off the radar, but she recants when she remembers the “bros before hos” thing. Jax thanks Tara for being such a supportive old lady, and asks her to marry him that day, at the brothel, with no fanfare, no party, no cake, just the two of them. Tara is hesitant at first, but then realizes …
… saddled with two sons and a gimpy arm, he’s probably the best I’m gonna get. Let’s do this!
Back in Charming, Unser visits Sheriff Roosevelt to find out if there any other details available about the investigation into the string of break-ins. Unser lets him know that he doesn’t believe this was “black retaliation”,
It felt more white to me.
Unser really said that. He does explain by letting Roosevelt know that getting punched by these unidentified creeps felt like it was obligatory, not a rage-fueled revenge punishment which is what a beating from the Niners or Pope’s men should have felt like. He tells Roosevelt he’ll be conducting his own personal investigation because he doesn’t believe it’s a revenge thing, and Unser hopes he and Roosevelt can share information.
