He leaves, saying Zobelle makes him sick.Weston gets a call from his son.Zobelle tells his daughter to call Hale and tell him someone threatened her life.

He says Jimmy happened and now, thanks to her, he and his dad are dead men.At the hospital, Tara finishes up her charts. The administrator sees her and says those should have already been done. Then she adds that after next week, Tara might not have to worry about paperwork anymore.Tara pauses for a moment, then says she pities her and calls her a stupid and lazy cheap suit. The administrator says Tara's true colors are coming through, and references Tara's "biker whore" friend. Tara gives the woman a good shove and she freaks out, saying she's calling security for assault. Tara says that wasn't assault. Then she slugs her, showing her what assault really is. Tara hauls her to her feet and tells her she knows where she lives and where her kids go to school. She takes out her gun and checks it, saying SAMCRO runs the town and if she says a word of this to anyone, it'll be the last mistake she makes.

"Fair's for losers," Weston says, "I'd rather win." "Yea," says Jax, smiling, "me too."Laroy and the black gang and all of the Asian gang come out of the woods, armed to the teeth.

He runs his gun up her leg and Unser tells him to back off.Zobelle walks in. Clay starts by saying he wants to talk outside Charming, but Zobelle says if he wants to kill him, he can do it there.
