until Gemma twists an emotional knife and offers her a shoulder to cry on about their miserable lives as SoA president old ladies (somehow, I can’t picture Laura Bush and Michelle Obama having this conversation in January 2009). She brings the win home by offering Tara the wedding rings from her marriage to J.T., since Jax & Tara obviously didn’t have time to get rings.
Point won by the lady with the scar!
The wedding itself is short and sweet, capped off by an Irish blessing by Chibs (or is he Scottish?).
Happily Never After
Romeo finally calls to meet with Jax, and at the meeting, Jax asks Romeo to get rid of the local charges as soon as possible and to use his connections inside make sure they have protection while they are in jail. Romeo says he’ll do his best, and then, after Jax leaves, tells Luis that, if he can’t get them out from under the murder charges, the CIA may have to abandon the Sons to the Niners/Pope and come up with Plan B to catch the Irish with the guns.
Back at the clubhouse, Jax gives Bobby final instructions and says his goodbyes. The guys all walk outside to meet Roosevelt and his arresting team, where Opie rides up on his steel horse to save the day.
There’s more than one way to save the day.
By assaulting Roosevelt and a couple of other deputies, Ope ensures that he’ll be inside at county with Jax and offer 6-plus feet of protection to his president.
Finally, we see the Nomads, Frankie, Go-Go, and Greg the Peg, driving up in an alley. Frank is going through some birth certificates/wedding licenses, while the other two dump Clay’s safe in a dumpster. I guess the official paperwork is the point of them breaking into Gemma and Clay’s house, but to what end? Hopefully we won’t have to find out in 30-second increments over the next 12 episodes. Any theories, Gasmii?
We close out with Gemma visiting Nero for some “comfort.” I don’t think this is going to end with another Diosa wedding, but we’ll see.
See you next week! Love to see my SoA homies in orange! Here’s hoping there’s a lice outbreak in the jail so they have to shave Jax’s and Opie’s heads. Thanks for all your comments, and remember to correct my shoddy memory and questionable powers of observation so all the new SoA fans can get correct info. Have a great week!
