Nero’s visiting his old crew,
but unfortunately, none of them remember the secret vato handshake.
Nero kills two of them but they claim ignorance of Jax’s kidnapping even after his threats and murder. He leaves and tells them they wanted him back, and now he’s back. I don’t know if I like this wild and crazy Nero.
Jax is sitting in a small room, tied to a chair. He smiles in relief when Romeo and Luis walk in, telling him the kidnapping was just a ploy to get him to reconsider giving up muling for the cartel. Jax tells Romeo and Luis that’s he has set them up with Lin as a new provider for guns, which is great since Galen would have bailed on the idea of providing guns to the cartel sooner rather than later.
The potato eater has a huge problem with beaners.
Romeo and Luis reluctantly agree to Jax’s new plan and decide to release Jax.
At church, Jax is laying it all out, telling the members that RICO would have killed all the charters of the club and setting up the deal with Lin (guns) and the Mayans/Niners (Galindo’s coke) releases them from the drug and gun running, if the club members agree. He lets them know that they’ll all take a pay cut getting away from the illegal stuff, but once Diosa and few things are up and running, they’ll be solid once again.
Good, ’cause it’s getting expensive replacing all these cars and bikes we keep wrecking each episode.
They vote to leave the guns and drugs behind, and the motion passes unanimously. As he’s getting congratulated in the club bar, Jax whispers to Gemma to take Clay home to her house and keep him there until he calls her. He tells Chibs, Juice and Bobby to come with him when he sees Gemma leading Clay out. Tig asks if Jax needs him, too. Jax says “not yet” and asks if Tig still loves him. Then he kisses him on the cheek, which, if I remember from The Godfather correctly, means that Tig will be biting the bullet soon.
At St. Thomas, Tara is walking down the hall after picking up the boys from daycare. She walks right by Donal Logue, who gets up and follows her out of the hospital as she passes by.
At Gemma’s, she’s giving Clay his cortisone shots for his arthritis and he asks her about Nero. She tells him it was never anything real and it still isn’t. Juice calls Clay’s phone for the fourth time, but he ignores it again. Clay tells Gemma he loves her and she chokes out an “I love you, too.”
I can still love you if you’re six feet under, which is preferable.
