Tonight's episode contains sexual situations. And when we last saw SAMCRO, they were headed to jail. This could get rough.
SAMCRO is finding prison to be a lonely place. Ethan Zobelle has reached out through the Aryan Brotherhood within the prison ranks to spread the word that the bikers are on their own. However, Clay has his own prison contacts: he reaches out to Laroy and the One-Niners. Laroy's cousin agrees to watch out for the crew in prison, but only if they take care of two snitches for him - one on the outside, one within the prison's walls. Clay puts a call into Opie to take care of the outside snitch, a trannie who goes by the name of Venus.
They plan to use Juice to lure the other snitch, a prisoner named Deon with a serious Latino jones, to a secluded area of the prison. That area turns out to be the hospital wing, where Juice goes after Tig "attacks" him. As Deon, who bribed his way into the secure wing, gets all touchy-feely with Juice, Laroy's cousin's crew storms in and kills the snitch. The protection comes too late for Juice, who is stabbed several times in the back by the Aryans, narrowly avoiding death.
Agent Stahl returns to Charming, but this time she's not looking to go after SAMCRO; she wants the Irish. Stahl has surveillance photos of Zobelle and AJ Weston meeting with Cameron and Edmund Hayes. According to Stahl, the League of American Nationals is interested in the IRA guns that Hayes and Son can provide. That's why they're pushing out the motorcycle club, to get their guns. Stahl travels to prison to meet with Clay. She shows him the pictures of Zobelle meeting with the Hayes duo. She implores Clay to give her the IRA in return for making the crew's arrest go away. When Clay declines, she needles him, telling him that she'll offer the same deal to Jax.
When Clay returns to their cell, he attacks Jax. Bobby holds the rest of the crew back, letting the two duke it out. The two brutalize each other, but neither seems to gain the upper hand before the guards break it up.
Mary, Opie's mother, can't handle being a mother for a second time. She bails, leaving Opie to raise his kids without her help. Gemma agrees to watch the kids when Opie gets the Venus call from Clay. Opie reaches out to Sheriff Trammel, another cop on the SAMCRO take, for help getting Venus back to prison. Trammel says he'll need Opie to plant drugs in the trannie's car. Opie calls Lyla, the porn actress who gave him her number when he fixed her coke vial-filled car. He implores her to call her dealer to get him the necessary drugs. When the dealer arrives, Opie attacks him and steals his drugs. He plants them in Venus's car (which, oddly enough, was not a Saturn), but when Trammel goes to pull him over, Venus shoots the Sheriff.
Gemma reaches out to Elliot Oswald for help getting the bail money for the club, reminding him that Clay saved his land from Jacob Hale's eminent domain scheme. Gemma is desperate, but Oswald turns her down. Oswald's daughter, Tristan (who was sexually assaulted in the first season and then avenged by SAMCRO), has a tender moment with Gemma and her grandson, even baptizing the baby. Perhaps this warms Elliot's heart: he posts bail for the crew. As the episode ends, SAMCRO returns to the garage, free on bail. As Clay and the rest of the crew head into the clubhouse, Jax walks off on his own, a man alone.
