Roarke later came to Charming with a few other members of the Kings, Declan Brogan and Galen O'Shay to negotiate a large gun deal with the Galindo Cartel personally. While Galen took charge of most of the negotiation, Roarke watched as the deal was put on hold after Clay Morrow had been shot since Galen refused to go through with the transaction without Clay.
After Jax had taken over as President of the charter, he had decided to start to pull the Sons out of the gun business during a meeting with Galen. The aftermath sparked a conflict that grew larger when Galen viciously murdered two of the Sons of Anarchy's younger members. Jax retaliated by taking Connor Malone and a few other Irish hostage and called the Kings, with Roarke leading the conference call. Jax laid out his plans to get out of guns and explained that the Irish could move their distribution to August Marks. Roarke and the other Kings told Jax that they didn't want to do business with August but that Jax should gather the club and they'd call him back.
