After he leaves, Opie asks if Jax is okay, then follows, "What are you going to do?" "Cry" seems to be the first choice. The second would be "Pick the guy."
Back at the Best Little Cathouse in Charming, Nero is trying to defuse Gemma's ridiculous snit over Clay's arrival, and it almost works, except for a shirtless Juice coming out looking quite goofily pleased. "Heeey?" he says nervously, totally cuing Gemma in to the fact that Nero lied about Clay already having left. Cue Gemma charging down the hall, shouting, "You want me kicking in every goddamned door?" As Nero hustles after her, a sated-looking Carla drawls, "Room three."
We see Clay sitting on the bed, dressed but for his shoes and socks (...okay), looking faintly pleased to have caused Gemma to lose her cool. Out of the bathroom walks Emma, adjusting her bustier, and she brightly asks, "What's going on?"
An ass-kicking is what's going on, as Gemma begins slamming Emma's head into any hard surface she can find. Clay just stays on the bed, watching the show with a faint smirk, and Nero sighs all, "Really?"
Back at the prison, all four Sons are now in the holding room before shift change. Chibs asks if the boys are okay, and Tig asks if Jax knows what's going on. Jax says, "Pope wants one of us dead." Tig immediately volunteers, and Jax shares, "No, you he wants alive and inside. Forever." Chibs sighs, "All right. So. How are we handling this, Jackie?" Jax has decided that he's going to handle it by not making a choice at all: He figures the four of them can fight the guards and then ... escape through the hot air balloon that will miraculously appear once they've triumphed over a bunch of heavily armed guards in a prison? Is Aquaman piloting the balloon? Because that's about as likely as what Jax is suggesting. Chibs is down with the fantasy plan.
Sergeant Jackball comes in and asks, "Am I choosing, or you?" Jax looks at his fellow club members and says, "My call." "No," Opie says, and head-butts a guard. As Jax screams in desperate denial, the guards hustle Opie to the box.
Once Opie's in the box, one of the guards kicks a pipe to him. Sergeant Jackball orders, "Keep it interesting, shithead."
Jax sobs and beats at the window, screaming Opie's name. Ope takes off his prison top -- we see that he's really a mountain of tattooed muscle -- and tells Jax, "I got this." Then Sergeant Jackball lets in four big, mean prisoners and tells them, "He's all yours."
