It's time for the vote. Clay votes in favor. So does Tig. Chibs says, "I don't trust them. No." Opie says yea, as does Miles. Piney dourly votes nay. Juice -- still in desperate need of an enema, or perhaps regretting his decision to stay up watching The Human Stain -- votes nay. Bobby Elvis says no. Happy says, "I'm sorry. I'm a no." Kozik says, "Backin' my prez and VP. Yea." Jax is surprised by that, and says yes. Everyone pushes back from the table, silent and unhappy. Piney's still sitting at the table, and Clay rises to close the door to church. Then he tells Piney, "You ever try to end-run me through my old lady again, I'll slit your throat." Then he walks out. Piney watches him go, eyes wide with fury -- at the present, at the past, at his brothers. And I begin to wonder if Piney may be planning his own death; it's only a question of what he's hoping to do to Clay or the club on his way out.
Tara pulls up at Teller Morrow and walks over to Gemma, who's standing in the doorway, smoking a cigarette. She turns around to see an angry Bobby Elvis stomping out of the clubhouse, and there's a shot where Gemma and Tara are both framed in the doorway, all long hair and high cheekbones and wary looks. Gosh, do you think this show is foreshadowing how Jax and Tara are destined to turn into Clay and Gemma? The final shot is of the core eleven club members each drifting away from one another, silent and alone.
