They go into the office and Clay tells Jax he knows about Otto and the RICO sting. He says he met with Romeo and that he and Luis will kill Jax if he gets SAMCRO to stop running drugs and guns for the cartel and the Irish. Clay wants him to hang on for awhile longer, just so that the CIA gets the evidence they need for the bigger players. By then, the legitimate businesses Jax is setting up (Diosa Norte, the Charming Heights automotive service contract, etc.) will be in full swing and able to make up for the money the charter will lose by abandoning the muling. Jax is getting angrier and angrier and as Clay calls him “son” for the second time in three minutes, Clay yells (he does that a lot this episode!) “Stop calling me son!”
It’s condescending and we’re not supposed to reveal that secret until the season finale.
Bobby knocks and comes in to tell Jax they need to leave. Jax thanks Clay for looking out for him but says he is “tired of being crushed under the weight of greedy men who believe in nothing” and he needs to change that. Man, is Jax a disillusioned WWE wrestler, or is this just another deep thoughts diary diatribe?
I have to go so I can join Occupy Charming.
As soon as Jax leaves the office, Clay calls Romeo to ask for one more day to convince Jax. Romeo allows it, a little too easily, and then when he hangs up, he tells Luis that Clay couldn’t change Jax’s mind, so Luis needs to make a phone call. Uh-oh!
Jax and Bobby ride off to meet with Lin and Nero walks out of the clubhouse, heading toward his truck. Gemma walks him there and tells him she can’t come see him later at Diosa. He’s a little confused and wants to make sure everything’s all right between them.
Did I do something wrong? ‘Cause we can go kill some people or knock over a liquor store if you need some more bonding time to be sure about me.
Gemma tells Nero she’s fine and kisses him good-bye. Clay walks out of the club just in time to see the affectionate gesture, and he and Nero spit nails at each other with their eyes as Nero drives away.
At St. Thomas, Tara meets with the doctor from Providence and tells her that she accepts the job offer
and she’s really excited about it
but she wants to keep it quiet so she can work on getting Jax on board with the move. Sneaky, sneaky …
Not a bad career move for an accessory to murder!
