Back at the hospital, Agent Tyler and Stahl are sprinting through the hallways, and Tyler is asking Stahl why Gemma might be accusing her of killing Edmond. Stahl's reply: Because Gemma Morrow is a lying liar who lies, and Tyler's just a convenient target. Tyler's not buying that explanation, so Stahl desperately lunges for Argument B: "We have proof, all right? We've got fingerprints on the gun, motive ..." Tyler gives her a Girl, please look, as she is well aware of how weak the evidence truly is, and Stahl moves to Argument C, which can be distilled to Baby, trust me. Don't I always do you right?. It is a sign of how bleak the lesbian dating scene is in Charming that Tyler drops it and goes along. Now, hands up all you readers who are sure that Stahl is betting that by pinning this on Tyler, the whole case will get thrown out and she'll end up unscathed? Okay, keep your hands up if you suspect that, in fine Sons of Anarchy tradition, this plan will be blown to hell by the season's end because a) it relies on a series of assumed events that will likely not come to pass, and b) Stahl is involved and she will inevitably get handicapped by her own incompetence.
Back in Gemma's hospital room, Counselor Calamity calmly inquires, "You want to explain to me why you sabotaged your deal?" Gemma mutters, "I had a change of heart." "The U.S. attorney's office is furious. I don't know what to do here, Gemma," Counselor Calamity says. Gemma says, "Yeah. Sorry. I gotta get out of this room for a while. Could you just ask my babysitter there if we could take an escorted therapy stroll? Then I'll fill you in on what's going on, I promise." Counselor Calamity almost smiles at this.
Hey, everybody! It's Darby the flame-broiled racist! (Flame-broiling: It sears in the hate without sacrificing any of the juicy ignorance.) He's alive and receiving treatment at a clinic on the outskirts of Charming, which is how he happens to witness Tara and Jax unloading all the HIV protocol drugs. It's a joyless transaction -- Jax is not at all happy about his old lady brokering this deal -- but Darby is giddy with revelation: "Son of a bitch, SAMCRO's in the drug business."
Aaaaaand cut to him cornering Hale the Lesser at a diner in town to pass along the news that SAMCRO's trafficking in controlled substances, the filthy hypocrites. Hale the Lesser successfully deduces that Darby's telling him this because, if he acts on it and engineers a raid of the SAMCRO clubhouse, it'll clear the illegal drug field for Darby. The flame-broiled racist denies this: "The Nords are almost done and getting burned to near death tends to make one rethink one's priorities." He just wants revenge against SAMCRO.
