Up at Piney's cabin. Gemma comes barreling in, demanding to know where the flyblown mountain of biker meat has gotten off to, and Unser quips, "Turns out he wasn't dead. Got up and walked away." Gemma gets huffy and demands to know what happened with Opie. Unser says, "I knew he was coming and I followed him ... wasn't really sure until I got here. Saw the pain in the boy's face." Gemma asks what Unser told Opie, and Unser says, "Clay killed his old man. I didn't tell him why. There's enough bad blood for motive." Gemma says wildly, "After Donna, he'll kill Clay!" "My intent, Gemma," Unser says with perfect no-duh delivery. Anyway, Gemma is not taking this well. She wants Unser to stop Opie from killing Clay. Unser gives her an Are you KIDDING, woman? look, and Gemma pleads, "I am protecting what it took me 20 goddamn years to build." And this is why couples should always take the time to cultivate separate hobbies, no matter how good the marriage is. Overinvestment in each other's extracurriculars never ends well.
Anyway, here's a takeaway from that scene, and continuing from last week: Unser's voice is getting more tremulous and thready. I'm not sure if he's about to go join the police department invisible or if this is him being all traumatized from the high drama of the last week or so, but it's worth noting that he's not carrying himself or expressing himself with the same vigor.
Meanwhile, outside the delightfully named Clear Passages, Juice is being picked up by Grad and the rest of the suits from the war room.
Bobby's entering a small room in Stockton and boy, is it throwing him that a) it's not the usual place where he visits Otto, and b) Otto's not there. The guard's all, "Whatever, hairball. Sit down and wait." Bobby does.
Cut to a swanky neighborhood. As Jax, Chibs, Happy and Tig walk up to the big, big house they're about to enter, Jax asks for the 411 and Gaalan says, "Our American colleagues have put profit before protocol. We're just here to enforce decency." Jax is none too thrilled that they're the enforcers, but that's the gig. Once inside the house, the four bikers take in the parlor. Jax notices a woman carrying a baby upstairs. After Chibs asks, "What the hell is this place?" Jax decides it's time for a look-see.
