Prospect Fail leaves his Sons of Anarchy jacket and the gun Tig gave him on a car and rides off into the night, (hopefully) never to be heard from again. Unless he's going to have to deliver the message about the Mayans to the guys. Maybe he saved us some time and put a note in his pocket.
Belfast. McGee gets a call from Jimmy, who tells him to put today's "little setback" behind them. He gives his phone to his booth mate Donny, who will fill Liam in on the details of what's to happen next.
A church. St. Matt's, I presume. Father Ashby and Jax sit together, and Father Ashby assures Kellan that Abel's safe. He says Abel was in danger from Jimmy, and still is. Jax doesn't understand why Jimmy has any reason to hurt his kid, but Father Ashby says he has many. He tells Jax that the words he's about to share with him are very volatile "and only God can be a witness." But, don't worry, because even God wouldn't be able to follow the Father's logic about what's about to happen here. He tells Jax that Jimmy wants to end the IRA's relationship with the Sons of Anarchy, and cut out SAMBEL from any future work, stop dealing guns in SAMCRO. Jimmy says the gun dealing is why his dad helped set up the charter with SAMBEL. But Father Ashby says Jimmy wants to sell the guns to Russians in Oregon for a greater profit because he wants more money. Everything he does is for profit. Jax, like the rest of us, wonders what this has to do with his kid. Father Ashby says the IRA's come to a very difficult decision: Jimmy's greed and arrogance has become a hindrance internally and politically. He says Jax experienced that hatred tonight, with the drive-by shooting. Jax figures out that Father Ashby's going to get rid of Jimmy, but that's not quite what the priest has in mind: Jimmy's so enmeshed in the IRA that word can't get out that they'd kill one of their own leaders. So he needs Jax to kill him over the vengeance of a distraught father, something every Irishman would understand. Jax asks if Jimmy knows about this conversation, and Father Ashby says Jimmy knows the lines have been drawn, which is why he lied to Jax about Abel and tried to get him deported right away. He says Jimmy wants Abel as leverage, and is a grave threat to both of their families. Father Ashby says, somehow ominously, that if Jax kills Jimmy, he promises Abel will go home in the arms of his loving family.
