The show begins with SAMCRO Prospect Half-Sac (Johnny Lewis) dropping girlfriend (or old lady) Cherry off at work. He hears sirens and looks over across the street. There, porn distributor Luann Delaney is being shut down by eager ATF agent Stahl (Ally Walker).Club Vice President Jackson (Charlie Hunman) and best friend Opie (Ryan Hurst) talk about the club and how it is family.At the police station Stahl is making enemies by taking over. Chief Unser (Dayton Callie) is not happy but his personal relationship with the Sons is called in to question. Stahl is smart and she has most pieces of the puzzles already in line. She knows how and from whom the Sons get their guns. She also knows their weak spots and is going to target the women who have the most to lose. When Deputy Chief Hale (Taylor Sheridan) protests that Tara is not one of them, she shows him surveillance pictures and says Tara (Maggie Siff) has spent the last four nights there at the club house. She also thinks that Agent Kohn was right and that Kohn pushed Tara straight back into the bikers arms.Gemma (Katey Segal) is taking care of injured IRA henchman Cameron (James McShane). He tries to talk about religion but she dismisses him; to her family is religion.Stahl goes straight after Opie's wife Donna (Sprague Graydon). Donna may be unhappy with Opie but she is no rat and Stahl makes very little headway with her.Opie asks Club president Clay (Ron Perlman) for money and Bobby (Mark Boone Junior) the treasurer agrees. Both senior club members are worried about Opie. His heart is in it but his head is somewhere else, Bobby tells Clay. The President thinks there is too much of that going around.The next stop for Stahl is the hospital. There, she surprises Tara with how much she knows about the young doctor's life. Tara isn't initially rattled but then Stahl mentions Kohn.Stahl and Jackson pass each other in the hallway. It is a very powerful scene as the two adversaries smile each at each other.Tara is worried about Stahl but Jackson promises her that it will never blow back on her and he would never let her get hurt.Opie delivers some money to Donna. He thinks that she would happy to have the mortgage covered but Donna is angry especially after Stahls visit. Donna says she is moving out. Opie said that Donna knew he was SAMCRO when they got together and that is how he earns. He does it because he loves her. In a very powerful move he tells her that if she cannot accept it she should keep packing. (I am not meant to put my opinion here but this is the second highly compelling scene in less than five minutes).Cherry approaches Gemma in the grocery store. She confides that the ATF are after her too. She also says that her real name is Rita and she is wanted for arson and grand theft. Apparently her ex was not that nice. ATF enters the store. Cherry tries to escape and injures one agent before she is captured.IN the grocery store, Gemma and Stahl talk. Again it is another clash between two powerhouses. Stahl says has Luann in custody. Gemma says all that Luan can tell them is how to give a good hummer and that she thinks Stahl probably has that covered already. Stahl agrees that she does okay. The two flirt with each other but Stahl gets nothing off use.Surprisingly, Unser is sitting at the table with the Sons. He too has a lot to lose. There is some panic and some members worry that each other's partner may rat. Clay suggests giving them something small but Unser says with a Rico case there is nothing small.Stahl meets with Otto in prison (series creator Kurt Sutter). She says she just needs something small (Unser was right) to make her bosses go away. Otto says he can help if she can reduce his sentence and get Luann in to see him.After Jackson drops her off at her own house, Tara is uneasy. Jackson promises her that she won't feel that way forever. She wants to know what they are doing where they are headed. She is worried about what his mother thinks. He asks her if she loves him. She can't answer and he kisses her and leaves.Tig (Kim Coates) and Piney (William Lucking) start a fight in a bar and then watch with Bobby as it escalates. This is to distract the police. Jackson breaks in to the watch house to warn Luann to tell Otto that he can't mention anything. Cherry is there and she begs Jackson to break her out. She says she isn't strong and will rat. He agrees but as he is letting her go, Unser sees. He turns the other way. Cherry asks if he is the police chief. He admits that he doesn't know what he is anymore.Jackson looks in on Stahl on the way out and sees her with Hale. The two are very close. Later Stahl is excited because they have witnesses for the IRA shooting. Otto gives Stahl a napkin with a huge amount of incriminating evidence. He tells her to type it up; clearly he wants to protect Luann.Happy (David Labrava) is leaving to go nomad for a while. Unser comments that he seems nice unaware of the numerous circles on his chest that show the number of people he has killed. Clay tries not to choke.
Luan delivers the message. Cherry has told Half-Sac everything. They say goodbye and she gives him a necklace. She leaves with Cameron. The club escorts them; as they leave Jackson and Gemma look on. Jackson gives Tara the peace sign.In prison, Stahl makes her first mistake. As she and Otto are looking over the documents to sign, he head-butts her two times. She is badly injured and very shaken. Otto laughs and Stahl (not one to be crossed) promises to bury the club.
