As the Galindo vote looms, SAMCRO is divided. In searching for JT's letters, Gemma discovers Tara has been looking into the circumstances of his death, and has learned that Unser helped cover up the truth. As Potter learns of SAMCRO's deal with Galindo, he explains to Roosevelt that Galindo needs weaponry to fight a blood feud with another cartel, Lobo Sonora. However, as he has no informants inside Galindo, Potter decides to move onto a contingency plan to make SAMCRO the primary target of a RICO investigation. As Clay negotiates with their ammo supplier, who want more money now that SAMCRO are selling in larger volume, he tells Bobby about Jax wanting out, and promises him the presidency at that time, despite already promising Jax that the presidency would go to Opie.
Did You Know?
When Tara is getting the keys from the "junk draw". Clay surprised her and they have a conversation. After the conversation is over she leaves the room lifting a shoulder bag on her shoulder. We can see the pad that is on the shoulder strap hang just over her shoulder blade, but when she arrives to the kitchen just moments later the shoulder pad is over her shoulder. Her shoulder bag has also been flipped and now has its front side towards her body when earlier it was the right way around front side pointing away from her body. See more
Jackson 'Jax' Teller
[Jax and a few others have just pulled up to the car holding the two black kids who stole their guns. A cop had pulled them over for speeding, but Kozik drove by on his bike and shot the rear window out of the cop car to lure them away. Jax leans down to the driver's window and smiles

The Blu-ray/DVD contains a 'Creator's Cut' version of this episode, which features four minutes of additional footage:
- After Clay (Ron Perlman) and Jax (Charlie Hunnam) have left Jax's house, Gemma (Katey Sagal) asks Tara (Maggie Siff) what her hospital colleagues think of her relationship to SAMCRO. When Tara says she hasn't asked them, Gemma asks her what her relationship is like with Margaret (McNally Sagal) since the kidnapping. Tara says she and Margaret work together, and have learned to navigate around the subject of SAMCRO. Gemma asks if that means they simply avoid discussing it, and Tara says she doesn't lie about who she is or who she's with, but neither does she wear it like a badge of honor. Gemma says she should, because she earned it, and Tara says her relationship with Jax isn't about accruing points.
- Before SAMCRO interrogate a distraught Brewster (Rickey Chaney) and Frecks (Khleo Thomas) Jax asks them where their guns and truck are. When they say they don't know, Tig (Kim Coates) smashes the trunk lid on Brewster's head. Opie (Ryan Hurst) then suggests a "crash test," and Tig reverses the car into a parked van multiple times.
- After Brewster and Frecks tells SAMCRO where the truck is, Chibs (Tommy Flanagan) and Juice's (Theo Rossi) arrive at Clear Passages, watched by Cane (LaMonica Garrett) and Martinez (Ramon De Ocampo). After a moment, the deputies are approached by Roosevelt (Rockmond Dunbar), who tells them to arrest Juice when he comes out. Cane points out that Juice isn't breaking the law if he has a card, and Roosevelt says the federal government doesn't recognize California's medical marijuana laws. Martinez asks why they're going after Juice, and Roosevelt says they're starting small and working their way up.
- After Juice is arrested, the Sons are unloading their guns from the truck. Tig and Kozik (Kenny Johnson) approach Jax, with Tig asking if they have made up after Jax lost his temper with Kozik for being so careless with the truck. They both say they have, with Tig saying he is all about happy endings.
- After Piney (William Lucking) tells Gemma to talk some sense into Clay, Juice returns to the garage from speaking with Roosevelt, and Chibs asks him what happened. Juice says it was nothing, "Method Man just slapping his dick around."
