REGRETS, I'VE HAD A FEW Clay (Ron Perlman) didn't turn on the club. And yet, he's still alive. For now.
Clay arrived at Stockton, and before he could even change into his new prison clothes, he was greeted by three black inmates. I hadn't thought he was going to die, but now, I was whimpering. It was that nice closeup of the blacked out Reaper tattoo on his arm -- the irony of him dying to protect the club that doesn't want him. Clay threw the first punch but was quickly on his knees. "Just get it done," he said seeing the shiv. He was as surprised as we were when he heard, "That's gonna be your choice."
Tara dropped by T-M to pick up the kids. Gemma asked if she'd ever talked to Wendy about the guardianship, and Tara said no. She had other things on her mind now. LIKE THAT SHE'S PREGNANT. Damn, Gemma is in a hugging mood. She embraced Tara and told her they'd figure everything out. The look on Tara's face was painful. Who would you be more frightened to plot against: Jax or Gemma?
Jax and the boys went back to Barosky's donut shop to hook up with Juice. Jax sent everyone but Tig back to T-M. He told Tig he wanted him to go back to the port and wait for a prospect to come with the van so they could move the Iranian porn equipment to the gun warehouse in case Amir comes looking for it. Jax told Tig about Amir thinking they'd killed his brother. "Kidding me? I cut him loose, man," Tig said. Jax made sure Tig remembered where the studio was, then hugged him, kissed him on the cheek, and said, "I love you, brother." "I love you, too," Tig said. Tig looked slightly confused by the extent of the gesture. My alarm bells went off. Was Jax saying goodbye to Tig? At Stockton, Clay made it to the yard and immediately tried to make an Aryan friend.
In Toric's hotel bathroom, he petted the escort with rubber gloves. "I'm gonna make all this matter," he said, pulling out some of her hair and putting it in a bag. He cut off a piece of her robe with a knife. Jax, meanwhile, went to see Colette at her place, which was totally hoppin'. The woman who's known as "cute hooker" in the end credits told Jax that Colette was upstairs. He heard Colette clearly with a client and headed back downstairs. But then he recognized the voice telling her to "get it." He opened the door and saw her naked straddling Barosky in a leather chair. Barosky shot him the same smug look Tara had shot Ima when she walked in on Tara and Jax having sex in the bathroom in season 2. That had been Tara declaring Jax hers. Poetic. Colette had no idea Jax was there. He left.
NEXT: Jax got this
