Speaking of places you don't often expect to find SAMCRO: try a pet shop. But that is apparently where Reggie works -- we can tell it's him by the blacked-out ink all over his back and arms -- and when he sees Clay and company coming in, he bids a woman named Bunny to get in the back. By the way, the store appears to be named "Bunny's," and there are a lot of rabbits in cages. Reggie is not exactly thrilled to see everyone, especially when they start asking why he walked away. But with a little light violence -- Jax throws a paperweight through a fish tank and Tig threatens to cut the throat of the adorable bunny he's cuddling -- Reggie is persuaded to talk. He explains, "Huff found out I was bangin' Little Paul's old lady --" "Ellen? Jesus, man," Tig exclaims in outrage. Let us recap: the man who was fine with slicing Benjamin Bunny from ears to tail is worked up about sneaky sex between two consenting adults. Anyway, Reggie continues, "Huff kept it quiet, said he didn't want to ruin Paul's marriage... Little Paul and I got word there was a cookhouse out on Copperhead, shook down the skinheads who were running it, found out Huff and Benny had set it up. Used the club's weight to get it done, and nobody at the table had any idea it was happening. Then we get a call from Huff and Benny saying Little Paul had been gunned down by Mexican bangers. No other witnesses." And when Reggie threatened to out Huff's operation, Huff threatened to play his leverage regarding Ellen: "I'd be drummed out and Ellen would be shunned. No compensation, nobody to look out after her. I didn't want it to ruin her life too. I walked away." Bobby Elvis dourly informs Reggie that his club has since voted in the crank business. Reggie would rather this not get back to the club, and while Clay's not willing to make that promise, he is willing to promise that Ellen will be taken care of. The scene ends with the boys heading off to go get a bead on the skinheads in question.
Meanwhile, back in Charming, Tara is learning that she really needs to start locking her office door. This time, Piney's the one in her office. Once he wakes up, he makes it clear what he wants: Whatever Tara read of John's, Piney wants it. The reason this request is particularly rich goes back to the inter-season scenes that were released via Sons of Anarchy's social media streams: When Tara was pregnant with Thomas, she went to Piney and asked him for background and history on JT, and Piney told her to leave the past in the past. So for him to decide now, when it's convenient, that it's time to exhume the moldering corpse of the 1980s... Tara's all, "Really? Why do you want to know now?" Piney says, "The club is heading into troubled waters. And maybe there's something in those letters that can keep the boat from rocking too much." Tara scoffs, "Those are some vague metaphors for a guy as direct as you." Piney's all, "Oh, you want me to be direct? Here goes: I deserve to read whatever it is John wrote because I knew him and you did not; I was his friend and you are not; this is my club, and I need leverage; I think -- Oh! Hey, Gemma! I was in no way working around to my suspicion that you teamed up with the club president to kill my best friend."
