Clay's idea of handing it: take the beanie ("You'll get it back when we find him. Because we are going to find him, you hear me?") and give Jax the gun to sink the ship. Now that we've gotten that out of the way, let's get to the real fun: the SAMCRO boys in hot pursuit of the two other men they saw earlier. The chase takes out one car that has the misfortune to be in the way of the pursuit, gunfire is exchanged (Bobby Elvis does the honors) and Opie gets caught on a fence, so Jax stays behind to untangle him.
Within minutes, the two men have pulled into a house, where a dozen of their closest, most muscle-y friends are waiting with big guns. Bobby Elvis assesses the scene ("Oh, SHIT.") and Clay throws up his hands with a disclaimer that really, this is just a social call, albeit one that got off to an awkward start. One of the guys in the car angrily asks why Bobby Elvis tried to blow off his head in the car, and Bobby Elvis drawls, "Just tryin' to get your attention." The guy shoves a pistol to Bobby Elvis's forehead and says, "You got it now, bitch!" Bobby Elvis shrugs and deadpans to Clay, "I got his attention." "I can see that," Clay gravely replies. HA! Jax and Opie wheel right into this standoff. Bobby Elvis explains that SAMCRO has no beef with a group of younger, fitter, better-armed men. Rather, they're after the guy who owns the red boat. Unfortunately, that boat now belongs to said group of younger, fitter, better-armed men. Jax walks up and right into the muzzle of someone's gun as he says, "The guy that did own that boat? He kidnapped my eight month old son." The heinous act is enough to shock the crew into lowering their weapons. (This move reminds me a bit of The Wire and the whole truce-on-Sunday code, where people who would casually kill each other were shocked -- shocked! -- that anyone would ever open fire during the hours when old ladies were heading off to or coming back from church.) So, Jax and the sentimental gentleman confirm that it was indeed an "Irish dude" who used to own the boat and dumped it for quick cash, but there was no baby with him when he made the deal. Jax thanks everyone for their time, and the subdued SAMCRO putters off.
