She yells at Chuckie to call Jax.Jax arrives to see Tara stitching Unser up. He tells him the attackers didnt seem too organized.
Were going to find who did this, Jax tells him.

When the subject of the surplus KG 9s comes up, Jax makes Les (Robert Patrick) tell the table personally that his charter wont be helping SAMCRO out.When church is over, Chibs asks to talk to Jax alone. He thinks Jax deciding to get them out of guns wasnt his call to make alone. Jax points out theyre under attack on all sides and down to only six members, so if he has to make decisions on the fly, he will.
Chibs tells him he sounds like Clay.
Everything I do in this club is for this club. Im not Clay, I never will be, Jax says.Lee Toric brings the DA Tyne Patterson the file on the dead Diosa girl.

Roosevelt says Toric isnt working on his investigation.
Maybe someone should tell him that, Nero says.Wendy meets with Gemma and tells her Tara knows that she came to Gemma for help.

He points out Neros the second guy in two weeks whos been dependent on her for an alibi. This ones not a killer, she says. He would never hurt a woman.Roosevelt gets the results, with hair, clothing and blood found essentially all over in the truck.

He tells the deputy to find out all he can on Lee Toric.Meanwhile, Toric drops by Clay to urge him to sign the affidavit, stepping on his arthritic fingers to make his point. He tells Clay hes sending him to the infirmary to see someone.Back at Darbys place, Jax has half his guys stick around to protect him. Filthy Phil calls Jax from the warehouse and tells him Galen and the Irish are there with the guns. They never do the hand offs at the warehouse.

Chibs suggests they take a breather, but Jax is having none of it. He mocks him, saying: Why dont you take a vote? Ill proxy Phil he says yes.Gemma drives a subdued Nero home. He wants some distance from the club because he thinks its getting him dragged into heavier stuff than he wants to be part of.
I hope it doesnt come to this, but if I have to cut ties, I want you with me, he says.
I love you, Gemma.
I love you, too, she says.Toric takes Clay to see Otto, who is strapped to a gurney and looks like the hell hes been put through. The side you cant see looks worse, Lee says.Clay goes to Ottos bedside and leans in to hug him, slipping the shiv under his leg as he does.

I know how much pain Ive caused you. Do you want it to stop? Lee asks.
Otto nods. Lee tells Otto that Clay has betrayed the club and since hes not a member, Otto wouldnt be ratting out the MC. He asks for anything he can use against Clay, promising to make the time Otto has left very comfortable.Otto takes his pad of paper and pen and motions to have his hand freed so he can write.
