Romeo and Luis tell Clay that since Jax was able to get of the RICO sting, they know he’s going to back out of the guns and drug running. They suggest that Clay makes his move to become president of SAMCRO again because they’re going to take out Jax. Romeo and Luis can’t lose their careers over this investigation because Jax doesn’t want to help them get the bigger fish to fry. Clay asks them to back off and give him some time to convince Jax to stay in the game. Romeo tells him he has two hours.
On a deserted access road off the highway outside of Charming, Jax, Tig, Happy and Chibs are waiting for Nero’s old crew to show up so they can sell them the guns. Quickly, they realize that they’ve been set up when three different cars, all full of Hispanics with their own guns, pull up to the clearing.
Is there no honor among outlaws? Can’t we all just get along?
Weirdly enough, it’s Tig who’s the first to suggest that they hop in their woody wagon and beat feet. Bring on my favorite part of every Season Five episode: The Chase Scene! Jax hops behind the wheel, while Happy jumps in back and hands out guns to everyone else. Jax drives in circles as they shoot at random gangbangers and look for an escape route. Jax sees a chained livestock gate and guns it. Unfortunately, there’s a hill on the other side of the gate. The woody wagon rolls over a few times
The woody wagon does all of its own stunts.
but miraculously, lands on its wheels. Even more miraculously, Happy is the only one hurt because he got nicked in the head by a bullet. No one else is injured, even though none of them wore their seat belts. Thank goodness for the “Oh shit!” handles. The guys, pumped up and hooting and hollering, drive off in their amazing stunt car. I guess they don’t make Brady Bunch cars the way they used to … can you imagine taking a Prius off that hillside?
At the clubhouse, Dr. Chibs is sewing up Happy’s scalp while Nurse Gemma feeds him a cocktail of shots of tequila and some antibiotics.
You wanna be/where you can see/your troubles are all the same/you wanna go/where everyone knows your name (and your felony convictions).
Tig and Clay are sitting at the bar, and Jax is behind the bar, talking to Nero, who looks a little upset. Jax is filling Nero in about his homies and their ambush. Nero is mad — like, crazy mad — and threatens to take the battle to them but Jax says he wants the war to stay out of Charming. Nero agrees. Bobby comes up to Jax and whispers that he just talked to Lin on the phone, and he wants to meet at The Dynasty right away. Jax tells Nero he has to go, but he’ll meet Nero later at Diosa to dicuss their options regarding Nero’s old crew. As Jax tries to walk out with Bobby, Clay stops him and asks him (forcefully) for a minute of his time.
