Previously: A lot of stuff happened, and then SAMCRO went to Ireland to get Abel back. No luck so far, but at least Jax is developing a crush on his half-sister -- and vice versa. So that's something. And they're still in Ireland (though stuff's still going on back in Charming, too, since some of the non-SAMCRO actors have contracts, too). This week's Irish episode title, Turas, seems to mean "trip." (Thank you, Irishionary and the former airline Aer Turas.)
Jax is still in a pew at St. Matt's, the church where Father Kellan Ashby bribed him last week that he would get his son back if and when he kills Jimmy. Needless to say, Jax is a little stressed. Enough that he moves to the front of the church -- the better for us to worship him, I guess -- and calls Agent Stahl to ask what she knows about Father Kellan Ashby. She whispers so her eavesdropping girlfriend doesn't get wind of her being in bed with Jax. Or in bed while on the phone with Jax. Whatever. She guesses Gemma's in Belfast if that's where he is, and he says he had no idea that shit was going down, and says they'll take care of Gemma's situation later, but right now he needs to know about Father Kellan Ashby. She says he's a friend of the Army, but Jax says he's more than a friend; he's a shot-caller. And he wants him to kill Jimmy to get Abel back. Stahl says that if Jimmy O dies, their deal is off. He knows, duh. Snoopy Girlfriend lurks into Stahl's doorway, so she pretends it's a totally casual conversation, all breezy: "I'll take care of it tomorrow." Then she runs off to shower her Jax off of her, and leaves her phone sitting there on the counter. Snoopy Girlfriend OBVIOUSLY picks it up and looks through it. Not that that's going to lead to anything important this episode, but I'm patient.
We Were Promised Jetpacks's (whoever chose the music for this episode doesn't know the difference between Scotland and Ireland, I guess) "An Almighty Thud" transitions us back to the exterior of St. Matt's. Then to Maureen looking at pictures: of her brother, Father Kellan Ashby, with John; John and her; and John, her, and baby Trinity. Jax heads into a different part of Maureen's place that morning for a makeshift SAMCRO meeting. Gemma's in her robe, because they were all clearly woken up for this meeting. But the SAMCRO guys look the same as always, since they sleep in their black leather and never comb their hair. Jax fills them all in on the situation with the great Father Kellan Ashby-Jimmy-Abel triangle: Jimmy wants Abel as leverage against Father Kellan Ashby getting Jax to kill him. Father Kellan Ashby wants Abel to get Jax to kill Jimmy. Jax wants Abel because he's his son. I think Jax actually has the moral high ground on this one. Gemma doesn't hesitate: "Then we kill Jimmy." Jax says it's not that simple, but doesn't reveal that it's all about Stahl. He just says he doesn't trust the priest, because they're all "smoky truth." The only thing they know for sure is that Father Kellan Ashby wants Jimmy, so Clay suggests finding Jimmy and handing him over. Jax agrees. And he doesn't want SAMBEL told about any of this: They need to believe SAMCRO wants Jimmy just to grill him about Abel. They guys all know where Jimmy's going to be later: a gun shipment pickup in Dungloe. Jax apologizes for walking these guys into that. They shake it off, and head back to bed for a few hours before all this major shit goes down.
