Jax asks Clay to stay alone …
Jax questions Clay’s motive and wants to know what his real intentions are. Clay turns the tables on him and asks Jax why he hasn’t killed him yet in retaliation for J.T.’s murder. Since Jax isn’t telling him about the ultimate plan to leave the club behind forever, they both wallow in the “it’s best for the club” reason to lie, murder, etc.
Outside, Gemma confronts Jax about the kids attending daycare at the hospital instead of spending time with her. Jax says he and Tara made the decision together, but she explains to him how their family, being so high-minded and all, doesn’t let “other people raise our children”.
She sees Clay and tells Jax she doesn’t understand why he’s still walking around, all alive and such, and Jax lets her know he’s biding his time. Nero calls to check in on her and she’s happy to hear from him.
Back at the railyard, Art tells Darnell and his posse to lay their guns on the hood of a car in preparation for the Jax Teller meeting that Mr. Pope was supposed to have with Jax. Before Jax rides up with some SAMCRO for the meet, Art gives Darnell a handgun and tells him that Mr. Pope wants him to prove his worth by killing Jax. As Jax approaches, and is leery that both Pope and Leroy aren’t there, Art asks the guys to lay out their guns and all the Niners lift the front of their shirts to show they’ve laid out their weapons on the hood too.
Assured of his safety, and Darnell’s authority to deal as decreed by Art, Jax approaches Darnell who quickly draws on him and pulls the trigger a few times. Empty clicks … Jax beats the shit out of him. Art feigns ignorance of the hidden weapon, and promptly blows Darnell’s brains out. Before leaving, Art tells Jax that Pope will be in touch soon. Jax gets the message. Holy Shitballs Again!
Back at Clay’s, Juice has finished the unpacking and tells Clay he knows it took guts to admit to Piney’s murder and the guys won’t vote him out of the club. Tig walks in and, after Juice leaves, confronts Clay about lying and forcing Tig’s hand in the Veronica Pope murder. Clay mutters his “good for the club” bullshit, and Tig doesn’t buy it. He questions why Clay never told him while Tig sat by his side every day in the hospital for three weeks. Clay says he didn’t know how and says he’s sorry. Tig gets a call: his daughter, Dawn, has been picked up for DUI by an Oakland detective. If he comes up there and gets her himself, they’ll drop the charges. As Tig leaves with their relationship still up in the air, Clay looks at a picture of them together when they were younger.
