Back at the hospital, Murray knocks and asks for a bit of Gemma's time. This is going to be good -- both women are basically hyperfocused on doing things for a greater good, but they have radically different ideas of what constitutes that greater good. For the admin: "I need your help with Dr. Knowles." Gemma is not swayed by this appeal, but Murray continues, "You exert a strong influence over Tara. She needs encouragement to make the right decisions about her future." Gemma acidly asks, "And what decisions are those." Murray rolls her eyes before saying, "Her relationship with the club." "With my son," Gemma clarifies. Murray nods. Gemma gets haughty: "You have no idea who we are. All you got is an impression, corrupted by the opinions of others --" "I didn't come here to talk about you," Murray says icily. Gemma replies, "Attack my son, you make it about me." I am still parsing the conversation for anything that can be construed as an attack on Jax and ... not finding it. Neither is Murray. Gemma makes a plea for respecting the tenure of Jax and Tara's affection for one another, which sounds a lot like whistling past the graveyard given her conversation with Tara earlier in the episode. Murray smirks and walks off. I like that woman more and more with each episode: She's as much a strategist as Gemma, but I think she's got the advantage of being able to separate the personal from the professional in a way Gemma does not.
