Cut to Gemma looking somewhat taken aback by Jax's answer. Perhaps she's doing the math in her head: She is fine with "messy" (i.e. criminal), Nero is fine with messy, Jax is fine with messy ... but Tara has made it clear she is not. Time to balance an equation?
Jax comes home, grabs a carton of milk from the fridge and drinks right out of it -- love that continuity detail -- then notices the legal papers on the counter. He finds Tara feeding Thomas in the baby's room and comes in all, "What is the meaning of this?" Tara points out that she's just getting her affairs in order and Wendy's the best choice as the children's guardian. Jax scoffs and Tara says, "You shouldn't have attacked her, Jax." Cut to Jax's face curdling as he realizes that Tara is on to his lies. He asks, "Is that what this is? You trying to teach me some kind of lesson?" Tara laughs and puts Thomas in his crib. She says, "You know, I used to think that if I gave up on the club or on Charming, I'd somehow be betraying you, and I didn't want to do that. And then I realized that my job as your old lady is to be strong when and where you can't be. That's what this is, baby." Jax looks concussed by the notion that Tara thinks she has any right to make any decisions about their family. Tara continues, "I took that job in Oregon. It starts in two weeks. The boys are coming with me. And if you love them, and if you love me, you'll follow us up there." Jax is speechless. He shakes his head, pulls away and tries to quell the murderous rage. Tara delivers the killing blow: "We both know if we stay here, we'll end up like the two people we hate the most. And our boys will be destined to relive all of our mistakes."
Before this discussion can go any further, there's a knock on the door. Jax turns a wounded expression on his face, then goes to answer the door. He tells Roosevelt, "Now is not a good time." Roosevelt knows, but he needs to speak to Jax for a second. He explains, "I'm here for Tara." Jax asks, "What are you talking about?" Tara creeps down the hall to see what's going on, and Roosevelt says, "I have a warrant. Conspiracy to commit murder. Death of Pamela Toric. You're under arrest, Dr. Knowles." In the background, Thomas is crying. Tara shakes her head and says, "No. No. He's crying."
