Back at the house, Gemma's smoking some mary jane to handle the pain. The house is darkened, and Unser does not miss how disheveled it is. He asks what's going on, and when Gemma turns to look at him, her face is swollen like Joan Rivers after a fresh surgery, and she's covered in livid red splotches. Unser squeaks, "Clay did this. Goddamn him!" Gemma orders Unser to sit and he splutters, "Sit, hell! We gotta get you to the hospital." Gemma's had enough of that place for the day, and says through her pulpy lips, "Nothing's broken. Just... sit. Please." Unser can't even bear to look at Gemma -- he's nearly in tears. But he asks gently, "What do you need, sweetheart? Just tell me what I can do." "Nothing else to do," Gemma says sadly. She continues, "It's done, Wayne. Clay can't be saved." Unser figures they can point Piney's murder at Clay, but Gemma has a far more literary punishment in mind: Clay will be killed by that which he created. "He's not going down by law. He's going to die by the hand of a Son."
Y'all, I rewound the last 40 seconds of that episode twice to verify the article there. Gemma says, "A Son," not "THE Son." So start your bets as to who does it here. Will it be Opie, as revenge for Clay murdering his wife and his father? Will it be Bobby Elvis, as a desperate attempt to save the club? Will it be Tig, who loves Gemma and will probably not be too cool with this? Will it be Jax? We have four episodes in which to see.
