Amelia's dressed and ready to flee the basement. She grabs a knife and manages to ambush Gemma in the hall near the kitchen. Putting a knife to Gemma's throat, Amelia asks for the keys to Nate's car. Gemma stalls, and that's apparently enough time for Tara to come upstairs and knock Amelia silly with a statue to the head. Once Amelia's thrown off-balance, Gemma folds the aide's knife-bearing arm into her torso and slams Amelia into a wall. And thus, Amelia ends up stabbing herself with a little assist from Mrs. Morrow. She dies quickly. Tara freaks out kind of quickly. She gasps to Gemma, "She's dead." Gemma's somewhat shaken, but soon snaps into battle mode with a cold, "Her plan, not mine." Tara -- who is still woozy from her head wound -- is also more than a little nonplussed at what just happened.
Cut to Tig washing the knife with a lot of bleach and hot water, and he turns from the sink to wave the knife at Tara and Gemma while he scolds, "I leave you girls alone in here for ten minutes ..." (HA!) Gemma's got Tara wrapped in an afghan with a cold compress on her head, and the women concur that the club doesn't need to know about any of this. Tig tells her, "We better work fast. They're making a run for the Irish and they'll be up here tomorrow." Everyone thinks it over, and Tig gets a bright idea: "Bachman! Bachman's based out of Crescent City. He can be up here in an hour or so." Gemma asks, "The cleaner guy?" Yep. Tig says, "He's independent. He works for around two or three grand, but he is good." Tig heads off to call Bachman and distract Nate; Gemma says she and Tara will take care of Amelia. "We will?" Tara asks. Gemma looks down and snaps, "Hey, you're the one who decided her fingers needed to breathe. You don't want Jax to find out about this, we've got to handle it." Once that sinks in, Tara's up and retching over the kitchen sink. And despite her tough-love delivery, Gemma's there holding back Tara's hair and rubbing her back. Their relationship is fascinating.
Back in gloomy, nocturnal Belfast, we finally get the answer to the question that's been plaguing us since Season One: "Whatever happened to Half-Sack's girlfriend Cherry?" (Oh, let's be honest. Nobody's been asking that question.) It turns out Cherry's working as a shopgirl for Maureen. She's busy sweeping up the place as Mo's daughter Trinity comes stumbling into the shop and says, "Walking back from the depot, there were peelers everywhere. They found Cammy Hayes strangled, an Army tag on his head." Maureen doesn't react; Cherry very quietly whispers, "Shit." (I do wonder if a day goes by where she's not like, "And I thought running with a biker gang was a good idea because ...?") Maureen refuses to discuss it and tells Trinny to get upstairs and start her laundry. Loudly, and repeatedly, since Trinny's spoiling for an emotional confrontation. Just then, McGee -- one of the First Nine in SAMCRO and the president of the Belfast Charter -- and his VP O'Neill come in. McGee gives Trinny a hug and sends her on her way, then asks Maureen if she knew anything about Cammy's death. Mo lies like a pro. (John Teller had a type, didn't he?) O'Neil asks skeptically, "He was your kin. He didn't reach out to you?" Mo snaps back, "I've got 47 cousins. None of them reach out." McGee's staring at her like he doesn't believe a word she's saying. Once the men have left, Maureen locks the shop and asks Cherry to do something, mouth shut and no questions asked: Reach out to Charming and get Gemma Teller's phone number. Oh, someone is about to kneecap her priestly relative. Cherry promises to give Half-Sack a call. Oh, this will end well.
