Jax and Bobby arrive at the clubhouse, and before they go in, Jax imparts their communication strategy: Omission! Well, they're going to omit Frankie's claims about Clay masterminding the break-ins as background to a coup, because the proof is shaky and it's better that Clay doesn't know that they know. But before they can go inside, Jax is distracted by Roosevelt pulling up. Eli asks how Jax's kids are, then says bitterly, "You know, Rita was pregnant. Seven weeks in. I don't even know if it was going to be a boy or a girl." Jax says he's very sorry. Then we get to the real meat of the scene: the DNA under Rita's fingernails was inconclusive, so the coroner can't tie Rita's death to the MC. But that doesn't mean Roosevelt's dropping it. There's some bluffing about the RICO case, then Roosevelt says, "There's somebody else [inside SAMCRO] talking to the Feds, giving them information on the cartel." Jax asks what Roosevelt wants. Simple: "I want Frankie Diamonds and anyone else responsible for killing my wife and my unborn child. I know you will find him before I will. Give him to me, and I will give you the rat at your table." Jax just stares, wondering how he's going to square the Frankie Diamonds handover without mentioning the RICO case.
Tara's putting down Thomas in his crib while Jax watches from the daybed, utterly wiped by the events of the last 24 hours. She collapses next to him, and Jax snuggles for a minute before asking, "Do you ever regret coming back?" Tara says, "To Charming? No. Sometimes I wonder what would have happened if I never left." Jax admits he thinks about that too. (Well, for one, there would be no Abel.) He's been thinking a lot about choices, which segues into Jax telling Tara about the whole Clay-and-the-nomads development, and the upshot is, Jax needs to manipulate matters so that it's the club making the call to cut Clay out and kill him. Tara's face goes hard and merciless, and she asks, "How do we do that?" Jax says, "I have a plan. You may not like it ..."
Then he apparently zips back to the clubhouse, so he can go hang with Clay and let the old man know that he's on to Clay's lie about Gemma's accident, and as a consequence, "Tara's cut [Gemma] out. She's dead to my family." Clay is all, Well, that backfired magnificently. AS SO MANY THINGS SEEM TO DO LATELY. Jax says, "You're the only thing she has left. Clay says self-pityingly, "Well, she don't want me," as if it's a total mystery why a woman might leave after her head's been used to buff the dining room floor. Jax then baits the hook: "I'm worried about her, Clay. She's already on edge. I'm not sure what happens to her without family. She's going to need you." Jax walks out, leaving Clay to his thoughts.
