In raiding the Lobo camp to end the feud north of the border, SAMCRO pay a heavy price, with the death of Kozik. Juice confides in Chibs about his father, but is surprised by his reaction. Upon learning what happened to Gemma, Tig resigns as sergeant-at-arms. Caruso's Asian investors elect not to back out of the deal with Jacob, meaning Charming Heights can now proceed unimpeded. Opie discovers Piney's body, with Unser telling him that Clay was responsible. Roarke, Brogan, and fellow Irish King Galen O'Shay (Timothy V. Murphy) arrive in California to meet Romeo and Torres. Meanwhile, Jax comes up with a plan to get SAMCRO out of drug muling, and Otto signs off on his transcripts for Potter. Written by Bertaut

The title of this episode is a quotation from "Hamlet". It is spoken by the Ghost: "I am thy father's spirit/Doomed for a certain time to walk the night/And for the day confin'd to fast in fires/Till the foul crimes done in my days of nature/Are burnt and purg'd away". See more »


At the beginning of the episode when Jax arrives at the Irish Kings meeting his cap is on backwards when he gets off his Motorcycle.

Clarence 'Clay' Morrow: Where is everybody?
