And now, many men riding motorcycles as loud music plays. Then there are shenanigans with regards to shaking the sheriff's tail. To make a long story short: Tig, Bobby Elvis, Kozik and others box in the police car and drop below the speed limit, thus allowing Clay et al. to speed away. There is some flashy stunt driving, and then the really pissed deputies flag everyone down and cuff 'em.
Back in Charming, Roosevelt is signing what looks to be the last of a stack of documents and grumbling, "A lot of confidentiality." "Peace of mind. That way, you say anything about what you see, I strip your badge and throw you in jail," Potter shrugs. Roosevelt gives him a long, level, do-not-f***-with-me look and Potter adds unnecessarily, "I have some trust issues." Then he keys a security code into the door, the men walk down a hall, Potter keys a second security code ... and they enter a war room dedicated to SAMCRO. There are huge picture charts detailing the club, the club's family and associates (Wendy is there, even though she's been MIA for seasons now), the Real IRA, the Russians/Putlova crew ... it's staggering. Intriguingly, at the bottom of the SAMCRO chart is a label reading "Plan B," and both Otto and Juice's mug shots are there.Potter lays out his case: He's going to use RICO to take down SAMCRO now that they've vaulted into the big leagues of gun dealership. He is, at the moment, working with the CIA, the FBI and ATF on this venture. Roosevelt is understandably curious as to where he fits into all this. Potter's getting to that, but first he disgorges some exposition: Because the Russians were not thrilled about SAMCRO ripping them off at the end of last season, they shivved Jax in prison. To make peace, Clay brokered a deal in which the Russians got a big percentage of the gun sales so long as SAMCRO was on the inside. Now that SAMCRO's out, things will be changing. The government hopes to find out via FBI Agent Ronald Wursky, who's been undercover for over a year now and is in line to become Putlova's number two man.
Potter outlines how he thinks this is going to go down: "Once our agent is inside the circle, he'll be able to Putlova on tape buying and selling arms. And in one broad stroke, we will take down the R.O.C., and by association, the Real IRA and the Sons of Anarchy." Since this is only the season premiere, I leave it to you to discern this plan's chances of success.
