We go back to SAMCRO, which is now at the marina where one Timothy O'Dell keeps his boat. It is not a vessel made for the high seas. Nor is it occupied by anyone, which is a good news/bad news situation. On the plus side: No tiny infant bodies to be found. On the minus side: nothing that's useful at all. Jax does find a tiny knit SAMCRO beanie on the docks and it sends him off into another brooding fit.
And right outside the Rogue river, Gemma's skulking out of her hotel room, but Tig -- who knows from skulking -- immediately catches her and inquires as to what the hell she thinks she's doing. Gemma tells him she needs to borrow a ride, and heads for Tig's truck. When he grabs her by the upper arms to tell her she's not getting it, she shrieks, "Let go of me!" He immediately does, looking apologetic. Hands up, all of you who think that Gemma's rape affects Tig in deeper and more enduring ways than he'll ever admit. He whispers an apology and Gemma shows him the newspaper page in question and says, "I've got to go home. He needs me." Tig swears under his breath, then lays out the reality of the situation: Gemma's APB went wide, so "every cop in five states knows your face. And the Feds are offering $10K for any info. You gotta sit tight. I'm sorry." Gemma fulminates.
Then we cut to her son, doing likewise on the docks while all the other regulars look busy. It just hit me: I hope that the Teller-Morrow auto body shop has a B-team to come in and handle repairs when the SAMCRO principals take off. Can you imagine how annoying it would be otherwise? You're a customer, you want your car fixed, and "Whoops! Sorry -- can't do it. We had to close down the shop today for a reason we totally can't tell you. Um ... we'll call you?" ANYWAY, I have digressed. The boat's a dead end and Opie's about to make it less seaworthy by shooting several holes in the hull when a few African-American gentlemen come down, check out the scene, and leave again. Juice, Happy and Chibs are detached to follow them. Bobby Elvis is left to comment on Jax's mental state ("He's totally gone, man") while Clay decides enough is enough and Opie looms.
Clay's idea of handing it: take the beanie ("You'll get it back when we find him. Because we are going to find him, you hear me?") and give Jax the gun to sink the ship. Now that we've gotten that out of the way, let's get to the real fun: the SAMCRO boys in hot pursuit of the two other men they saw earlier. The chase takes out one car that has the misfortune to be in the way of the pursuit, gunfire is exchanged (Bobby Elvis does the honors) and Opie gets caught on a fence, so Jax stays behind to untangle him.
