"Fun Town" is the third episode of the first season of Sons of Anarchy.


When the young daughter of a prominent Charming family is assaulted during a visiting carnival, SAMCRO races the authorities to capture the assailant. Meanwhile, a new shipment of guns arrives from their IRA connection with an additional price. Tara's ex-boyfriend arrives in Charming.


SAMCRO visit Fun Town, the local carnival. Clay, Gemma, and Jax come across Elliott Oswald, a local businessman, who briefly chats with them as Jax gives Oswald's 13-year-old daughter, Tristen, tickets for a ride. Later, Clay and Gemma have sex in a photo booth and the rest of the crew rough up a clown.

Later that night, Michael McKeavey arrives in town with the latest True IRA weapons shipment from Ireland. Clay informs his longtime supplier that there will be a delay in payment until the new warehouse has been built. McKeavy then says that he will now have to find a new supplier. After this, McKeavy and Chibs travel "up north" to find new buyers, likely the Russian Mafia.

Meanwhile, as the fair draws to a close, Oswald says he cannot find Tristen. She is later found in the nearby woods raped and beaten.

The following morning, Elliott approaches Clay and asks for help finding the perpetrator, offering money. Clay refuses the money but insists that if the rapist is caught, Oswald must carry out the punishment himself. The Sons then begin their own criminal investigation and Juice comes up with a suspect; Johnny Yates, a former Nord gang member with a history of sex crimes.


Gemma speaks with Darby

At the hospital, Wendy Case regains consciousness after her overdose. Tara approaches her and suggests that Gemma supplied the drugs, but Wendy refuses to accept the allegation. Instead, she reflects upon her situation as compared to the doctor's. "The two women who loved Jackson Teller", she laughs. "Could we be at more opposite ends of the shit spectrum?".

At Teller-Morrow Automotive, Tig gives Juice some sleeping pills, that they plan to use on the local police who are watching their clubhouse, to stash. However, Juice mistakes these pills for Speed and takes one. He is later found unconscious in the clubhouse. Comically, Tig and Bobby put him in a diaper and leave him to be found by David Hale outside the police station.

Gemma visits baby Abel at the hospital, and runs into Ernest Darby, who is visiting his dying mother. They chat, and it is indicated that he had a prior romantic interest in her and possibly still does. Clay, Tig and Bobby then turn up and ask Darby about Yates' whereabouts. He says that he doesn't know where he is, and even if he did, he wouldn't turn him over to SAMCRO. Tig also teases Darby over the "mysterious disappearence" of Whistler, the Nord they killed in San Leandro.

Tara receives a threatening phonecall from Josh Kohn, a Chicago-based ATF agent, telling her that he is looking for her.

The crew then locate Yates among a dog fighting ring at a rural compound. Expecting heavy resistance, they bring assault rifles and approach through the forest. However, they then find that the men at the compound are born again Christians, and that Yates is unlikely to be the rapist.

Gemma eventually gets to the truth when she chats to Tristen's mother, Karen Oswald, at the hospital. It emerges that the girl knew the identity of her attacker all along but has been keeping quiet on the advice of her mother. Karen comes clean and reveals that the rapist is a fairground worker. Gemma tells Clay of the rapist's identity and, that night, he and the crew force their way into the fairground. After a brawl with the carnies,

during which Tig bites off a man's ear, they retrieve the rapist before the police can. They then take him to a secluded spot and hand him over to Oswald. Clay gives him a knife to castrate the rapist, but he finds he cannot go through with it and flees. Undeterred, Clay picks up the knife and does it himself (wearing gloves). He then keeps the knife bearing Elliott's fingerprints and takes the rapist's testicles as a grisly souvenir from the body. He is then buried in the woods after bleeding to death. Jax asks "what the hell are we doing here?", to which Clay replies "just taking out some real estate insurance". However, Jax is unhappy that Clay acted without consulting him, saying "you want me to be your number two and protect this club, I’ve got to know where you’re taking us". Clay then confirms he is using the evidence to blackmail Oswald into not selling his land around Charming to property developers, as the town's growth would challenge SAMCRO's reign.

The next day, Hale finds and wakes up Juice outside the police station. Hale then tells him to leave as Juice says he is "late for my 8:00 feeding".

Meanwhile, the rapist's testicles gets mailed to Oswald.

Josh Kohn later turns up at the police station, identifying himself as an ATF agent and asking Hale if he needs help bringing down the Sons of Anarchy, much to Hale's delight.

Notable QuotesEdit

John Teller: When we take action to avenge the ones we love personal justice collides with social and divine justice. We become judge, jury, and God. With that choice comes daunting responsibility. Some men cave under that weight. Others abuse the momentum. The true outlaw finds the balance between the passion in his heart and the reason in his mind. His solution is always an equal mix of might and right.

Clay: You think a Son had something to do with that rape?
Hale: Half of 'em have violent crimes on their rap sheets. Just following logic.
Jax: Wasn't it just last week four Oakland cops were busted for prostitution and rape? Logic tells me we should ask where your d*** was at last night.
Clay: And don't say in your mama.

Elliot: I want you to find him. You bring him to me first. I'll pay anything you want.
Clay: Who do you think we are, Elliot?
Elliot: Oswald's have been in this town a lot longer than SAMCRO. I know what you are.
Clay: I don't want your money. Nobody comes into my town, and does this to an innocent girl. We'll find the sick bastard. But, when I deliver him to you, I'm gonna need to know that justice will be served.
