Jax eventually ends up at his dad's grave, just sitting and crying. One of his two gang rings (the "SO" one -- he's still wearing the "NS" one) is now atop John Teller's grave. When he decides it's time to go, he runs into Piney, who asks, "How's the old man?" Jax replies, "Still dead." Piney wryly says, "I hear that happens." "What are you doing, cruising for widows?" Jax asks. (Again: HA!) But alas, Piney's not there to get any black-clad dates; he's stuck making the arrangements for Half-Sack. Given how many people associated with SAMCRO get planted in any given year, do you suppose the cemetery's now giving them a frequent-customer punchcard? Bury 11 bodies and the 12th plot is free? Anyway, Piney makes a very sweet offer to be a listening ear if Jax needs one: "I'm not as smart as JT, but I've been known to have my moments." Jax declines, but Piney presses: "We're not shrinks, or priests, and if you don't want to talk to me, that's fine, but you're going to talk to somebody in this club and work this shit out." Jax admits, "I'm trying to find some kind of balance, Piney. The right thing for my family, the club ... every time I think I'm headed in the right direction, I end up in a place I never even knew would feel this bad. What do I do, man?" Piney tells the teary younger man, "Be loyal. Decent. You love the right things. That's who he was. And I miss him. I miss him." Piney stalks off, overcome. And as much as I get how Piney's trying to steer Jax to "know" his father as a man by emulating him as a man ... I can't help but wonder if he's really doing Jax any favors here.
Tara is finally talking to the FBI and Stahl. It's not a productive conversation.
Outside, Unser's giving Clay the 411 on whether or not law enforcement has any leads on Abel (short answer: no), then asks, "How's our girl doing?" (All together now: Awww.) Clay reassures Unser that Gemma's fine and "it's probably best I don't give you too many details." When Tara exits, Clay starts for Stahl (who's right behind her), and Unser holds him back, reminding him that he's no good to anyone behind bars. As Tara walks by, Unser asks if she's okay; Stahl, following behind, snottily says, "I'm okay too, thanks." Then she tries to goad Tara into saying something: "I find it hard to believe you've never run into Cameron Hayes before. He's been in town for months running guns for your future father-in-law." I find it hard to believe Stahl thinks anything Tara says here would be admissible in a court of law. Then again, this is the nation's most incompetent ATF agent, so maybe she's unclear on how due process works. Tara whips around and snarls, "I find it hard to believe you've still got a badge after what you did to Gemma." Stahl sticks to her Gemma story, and when Tara tells her to stay out of the way, Stahl blocks Tara from getting in her car and purrs, "Or what, doctor? You're going to have one of Jax's boys gun me down?" Tara points out that "I don't need a boy to handle my shit." Well, that's one of them in the scene who can claim that. As Tara drives off, Clay is practically smiling with paternal pride.
