And now, Clay, Jax, Piney and Miles have pulled up. Gemma is none too pleased and lays into Opie: "[Ima] said some cruel shit. This may be none of my business, but you hooking up with --" Jax is all, "Mom!" and Gemma reminds him that Ima pulled a gun on her. Opie accedes that verily, he created this shit storm. And then he steps into Piney's sucker punch. Opie goes down fast and hard. When he manages to get to his feet, Piney growls, "Your dick almost got people killed. I don't even know who you are anymore." Opie's all, Well, crap, I've got to own that too.
The next scene has Tara tending to Opie's forehead cut, but her bedside manner is noticeably lacking. Opie slumps off-screen, and Jax asks Tara if she's okay. No, she is not. Not only did she miss a staff meeting because of biker antics, she's had to deal with her fiance's former one-night stand. Tara storms off, and Jax lights a joint. Opie's got a bag of frozen veg on his brow, and he observes, "Doc seems a little pissed." Jax shrugs, "She's just reliving my shit." Opie sighs, "At least she gave you a pass. Don't figure I got one of those coming." Jax passes Opie the joint and says glibly, "Getting knocked up and getting kidnapped kind of wipes the slate clean. I wouldn't recommend it as a fix." Opie finally admits that perhaps bringing another human being into the world is not going to fix what ails him and his marriage. Jax figures the pregnancy gets Lyla out of porn, and once again, I am confounded by the SAMCRO conceit that somehow, what is keeping Lyla working is not, say, being a parent and a partner to a convicted felon with a shaky career path, but rather her vocational commitment to taste-testing her coworkers for yeast infections.
