When Tig is done, he's shaking a bit, and Jax puts out a hand and touches his shoulder. Tig simultaneously jumps a foot in the air and makes slappy hands at Jax. Cue Jax being all, "Baby, I'm sorry you were scared!" telling Tig that in order to make this convincing for Pope, he couldn't say anything to Tig. "He could have killed me right away, bro," Tig says. "But he didn't," Jax points out. "No, he didn't," Tig says. "Now I need some clean, dry pants." (Oh, he doesn't say that part.) Then Tig notices he's holding Clay's gun. "Is that going to be a problem for you?" Jax asks. Tig looks at him all, How do I answer any question you ask from now on? He may be legitimately terrified of Jax on a permanent and ongoing basis. Tig breaks down sobbing and Jax hugs him for a while, vowing, "It's over, brother. It's over."

Roosevelt realizes that if he goes along with this, then two things happen: He's using the system to exorcise a personal vendetta and he's putting himself under SAMCRO's power because they'll have something on him. Still ...
The widower swallows hard before shouting his find to the others: "We've got a weapon!
Tara's meeting with Lowen, who has just briefed her on the particulars of Otto's meeting that morning. Tara is both appalled and impressed that Otto bit off his own tongue. Lowen says cheerily, "As gruesome as it was, this is good news, Tara. Otto was the only one who could tie you up with a conspiracy charge. Everything else they could charge you with is a misdemeanor." This would be a fine time for Tara to bring up Gemma's threat, just to make sure there's no way it could happen or to work up an in-case-of plan, but no ... she zones out instead. Then there's some more estate planning, wherein it's revealed that Tara's brain is still floating somewhere around Stockton because she's under the impression that Jax is going to go along with all this too, which ... ha! Noooooooo.
