R.I.P. Dirty Randy’s Spiritual Cousin — Jax is not in a good place because the goddamn Irish keep insisting on using SAMCRO to run guns. Jax tries to outsource it to the San Bernardino chapter, but their President — played by Robert Patrick, and his right hand, played by John Hensley (Nip/Tuck) — bring news that the San Bernardino chapter had voted it down. This would SEEM like a good time to let Galen O’Shay and the Irish know that August Marks would be interested in taking over the operation, but Jax’s pride wasn’t interested in plan Bs.
In the meantime, there’s increasing friction between Jax and Chibbs, who tells Jax that he’s becoming more and more like Clay every day. Jax’s response is to nose-flare at him.
Then, Galen figures out a way to make SAMCRO listen to them by taking out poor Filthy Phil and the other guy that no one cares about. NOOOOOOOOOOO. Why couldn’t it have been Rat Boy? Anybody but Filthy Phil!
I do like that the Irish understand that presentation is important.
Never Trust a Dead Hooker’s DNA — Elsewhere, on the other side of this episode, Nero was taken in for questioning by Eli Roosevelt, who had also impounded Nero’s car and found what Toric had planted from the dead hooker. Eli wasn’t having it, though. He understood that there was something very suspicious about the evidence found in Nero’s car and cut Nero loose, but not before digging up a little dirt on Toric, not that it matters now.
Never Anally Rape a Man When’s He’s Down — That brings us to the HOLY SH*T moment in last night’s episode. Toric, who had framed Nero for the murder of the hooker, was also still trying to get Clay to turn on SAMCRO. What incentive does he offer? A glimpse at Otto, who is as broken as any man could be that’s still alive. Clay took the opportunity to slip Otto a shiv, and instead of using it on himself, Otta stone cold stabbed Toric and then slashed his throat, before being gunned down by the guards.
Otto gets major style points for his departure.
Hey! But wait a second, right? Otto’s dead, which is really a mercy than anything, because that poor guy … but Toric’s death throws a wrench into the series. I mean, WTF? Now, Clay avoids his morning buggerings, Tara may or may not face trial without Otto in the mix and Toric to push it, and now what becomes of Nero, who won’t have Toric around to pin the frame-up job on? Does anyone care about the school shooting anymore? Why develop Toric over the course of so many episodes, if Sutter is just going to kill him off before tying up his loose ends? He’s the focal point for so much of what is going on in this season, so I don’t understand why Sutter decided to kill him now? Also, where the hell is C. Thomas Howell? He had two short scenes? I love that guy. BRING HIM BACK.
Sutter knows what he’s doing, or at least thinks he does.
I guess we’ll trust him. For now.
