The basement door opens and Gemma begins tramping down; Amelia freezes mid-wheel. But then Tig calls: Nate just pulled up and he's in the back yard. And so Gemma heads back up the stairs. Amelia has time to free herself and figure out what to do next.
Cut to a backyard that could more accurately be labeled "the botanical garden." It's just gorgeous -- huge rosebushes in different colors, trees framing the entire thing -- and makes me wonder who's been maintaining it. Gemma sits with her dad on a bench and asks, "Where'd you go? Where's the gun?" Nate got rid of it; he asks Gemma almost pleadingly, "Did I kill someone?" Gemma hastens to reassure him that he didn't, and Nate says, "I remember --" Gemma cuts him off with, "It was an accident. Tig is okay. It's perfect. Everything is fine." What is so great about this scene is how Gemma mirrors Nate's body language; it is such a huge change from the self-contained or confrontational stances she takes with almost everyone else. Nate sighs and says, "Days like these, that I can remember everything I usually forget -- these are the worst days. I was useless to her, Gemma. I couldn't even comfort her at the end." Gemma pauses a moment before gently asking, "You know Mom's gone?" Nate looks at her -- perhaps taken aback that Gemma's even had to ask the question -- and nods. Gemma continues, even more softly, "And, um, you know we're going to have to leave this place soon? Go ... someplace where people can take care of you?" Nate knows. Days like these really are the worst. Gemma leans in and puts her head on Nate's shoulder, whispering, "I'm sorry, Daddy." They sit there, unable to comfort one another.
Hey, remember how in season one, Oswald's daughter was raped by a carny, SAMCRO exercised a little biker vengeance and indebted Oswald to them for life, and then leaned on him in season two to post his property for the bail? I bet you Oswald remembers that entire chain of events now, because SAMCRO's just stopped by to break the news that they're jumping bail. Oswald takes it about as well as can be expected but, ever mindful of his mayoral run against Hale the Lesser, he asks for SAMCRO to distance themselves from him for a while. Since the boys are about to head up to Canada, that shouldn't be too hard, right?
Cameron's just been dropped where he's sure to be found. Not that Belfast doesn't look lovely from what we've seen so far and all that but man, every shot we've gotten has been really gray and dark. Either everyone we're being introduced to lives, vampire-like, between sundown and sunup, or the sun just never shines there. Is that it?
