The slope is getting very slippery for several members of the Sons of Anarchy amidst the disappearance of one kilo of coke.
Gemma (Katey Sagal) meets Otto (Kurt Sutter) in prison so he can discuss what he learned about Luanne’s (Dendire Taylor) death. Otto really drives the point about him wanting to know who is responsible, home. Gemma doesn’t know anything about Bobby (Mark Boone Junior) and Luanne and has her doubts that he would be responsible for her death. This is one of the few times, maybe even the first that we have seen Sutter and Sagal (real life husband and wife) acting opposite each other.
Around the table, Clay (Ron Perlman) claims it was Georgie Caruso (Tom Arnold) that killed Luanne and that they need to find him. He doesn’t mention that he knows anything about Bobby and Luanne, but does say that there was semen on Luanne from one of the members, who has been in the system.
After the meeting, Clay divvy’s up more cash to the members. Bobby and Piney (William Lucking) both look at the cash with disdain. But, Bobby leaves quietly after the meeting and Piney starts digging a very big hole. He directly confronts Clay about John Teller, saying he has read some letters directly from John and knows everything. He tells Clay that he has one week to kill the deal with the cartel, otherwise he is going to tell the whole club what he knows. Also, if Clay is still considering slitting his throat he has some “assurances in place.” Piney punctuates his point by tossing the cash. Whoa, Piney you just passed a line from which there is no return! Not only are you putting your own life in danger, you are putting Tara’s (Maggie Siff) life in danger as well. Why the hell did Tara confide in him anyway? If he and John were such good friends, why didn’t JT talk to him directly?
Clay, clearly rattled by the confrontation goes to Gemma and confides in her. Gemma doesn’t want him to take any drastic measures against the mother of their grandchild or a co-founder of the club. So she tries to buy some time by telling him that he should give her a chance to find the letters. No letters, no proof. He makes a promise, but we all know how good Clay’s word is. Damn Clay, you’re so worried about Jax (Charlie Hunnam) finding out about what you did to his father. What do you think he will do to you if he finds out you had anything to do with harming his fiancee, the love of his life?!?
Both Clay and Gemma separately pay Wayne Unser (Dayton Callie) a visit and ask him to get the letters. Clay’s visit is under the guise that he is securing shipping lines for their next run and Gemma’s excuse is that she is doing her weekly weed delivery (to help deal with his cancer). Wayne knows that he is stuck between the two of them and reluctantly agrees to find the letters.
Wayne breaks into Tara’s office and desk and finds the copies she made in an envelope. He replaces the copies with plain paper and sneaks out. Back at his place he reads the contents of the letters and starts to burn them. He doesn’t manage to completely destroy them, because Clay arrives. Clay manages to salvage some of the letters and sits down to read them. Wayne confronts Clay and asks him what he thinks Gemma would do if she found out the real reason he killed John? After Clay finishes reading, he tosses the letters back into the fire. Knowing that they are only copies, he commissions Wayne to find the originals. Wow! Is there anyone that Clay is completely honest with, including himself? Gemma shows up just after Clay leaves. By this time, the letters are mostly burned. Wayne tells her the info in there is just too painful so he burned them. He doesn’t tell her the letters are only copies. So she fished the burnt embers out and presented them to Clay, telling him it’s done, finished. At least her plan is to try to save lives!
A few of the guys track down, Georgie Caruso and are getting ready to end him. He makes a plea saying he will cut them in on his sex doll deal. Clay is more interested in who the investors are. When they find out he has some rich Asian investors, Georgie gets a stay of execution. Clay decides he is going to use the investors by letting Jacob Hale (Jeff Kober) think they want to invest in the new properties in, Charming Heights. Then at the last-minute, they pull them out. Once the deal is done they can finish off Georgie. Bobby isn’t very pleased with this new decision, because he knows he has to face Otto. He sits down with Otto and admits he slept with Luanne, but didn’t kill her. It was Georgie Caruso. When Otto asks if he has been taken care of, Bobby lies to his face and says yes.
Lincoln’s (Ray McKinnon) plan to use Roosevelt (Rockmond Dunbar) as a means to the end of SAMCRO becomes apparent when he lies to Roosevelt and tells him that when things go down, his name will not be mentioned anywhere. The truth is that it is already too late for that, so the unsuspecting Roosevelt goes off to do Lincoln’s bidding. Which is chipping away at Juice (Theo Rossi) as a way to get intel on the, Sons of Anarchy.
On some level, Roosevelt managed to get through to Juice who goes into a locked room where the coke is being held (awaiting transport) by the Mayans and members of SAMCRO. He takes a brick with the intention of getting a sample of it. But when he is interrupted, he secretly removes an entire brick from the stash. He ends up falling asleep with it in the woods somewhere and when he wakes up it is morning. That means there are far more people around than the night before, so it is impossible to put it back.
With members of both clubs around, they line up all the bricks and count them. There are 29 instead of 30, so it is pretty obvious they are one brick short. Everyone looks around the room at each other.
Piney threatening Clay then disrespectfully throwing the money. Clay talking about offing Piney and Tara to keep a secret. Gemma and Clay lying to each other for their own reasons. Bobby lying to Otto. Wayne trailing Tara to find the letters. Juice removing an entire brick of coke, because of some promise made by Lincoln the puppet master via Roosevelt. Holy crap! Get ready – things are getting really messy!
