When old bones are discovered on the outskirts of Charming, Clay is forced to deal with secrets he buried long ago.
Employees for the Water and Power Board working near State Rd. 44 dig up three skeletons while laying pipes. WhenJax finds out, he tells Clay and Tigs about it. Clay tells the Jax that the bodies were Mayans killed in the SAMCRO-Mayan War of '91, and they need to stop the bodies from being identified. However, Clay later tells Gemma that one of the bodies is that of Lowell Harland, Sr., a mechanic at the Teller-Morrow Automotive who was killed for being a "junkie rat". His son, Lowell Harland, Jr., is now also a mechanic at Teller-Morrow and a former drug addict. Tig is the only other who knows that Lowell, Sr. was murdered.To raise funds to pay for the guns from the True IRA, the club decides to enter Half-Sack into a bare-knuckle boxing competition. Half-Sack, the former Lightweight Champion of the Armed Forces, is told to win his first five fights then take a dive in the sixth. This will allow SAMCRO to bet on his underdog opponent and earn a large pay-off. He is trained by Chibs, who recently returned from his trip with Michael McKeavey. Clay insists he has "no booze, no weed and no pussy". This means that Cherry must be kept away from him. To test her loyalty to Half-Sack, Bobby tries to have sex with Cherry at his house, but she refuses his advances. That night, Clay, Tig and Jax go to the local hospital morgue to get the bodies. In order to sneak into the morgue unnoticed, they must make sure no one is around; Tig shows the bite mark on his buttocks (received by a dog in "Patch Over") to the nurses standing nearby, who flee in disgust. Clay tells Jax to wait outside and keep guard, while he and Tig break into the morgue. Upon finding the first dead man, Tig sets about removing his teeth with pliers – until Jax appears and offers to lend a hand. He discovers that the body has already been identified and that it is Lowell Harland, Sr. Clay claims that Lowell, Sr. was killed by the Mayans and, after exacting revenge on his killers, Clay and Tig buried all three bodies together. At the police station, Hale and Stahl, having identified the bodies, suspect Clay of the murders and decide to use their suspicions to turn Lowell, Jr. against the club. They bring him to the station and tell him of his father's fate and where he was buried. Later at Teller-Morrow, Clay tries to convince Lowell otherwise, telling him the same story he told Jax earlier. Lowell seems to have believed the police’s story, however, and goes missing. Worried that he may be a liability to the club, Clay heads off to find and kill him. He finds Lowell at a motel and puts a gun to his head, preparing to kill him. However, he has a change of heart and decides to tell Lowell the truth and bring him home. Elsewhere, Tara reveals the truth about Josh Kohn to Jax. She explains that she dated Kohn in Chicago until he became violent. When she ended the relationship, Kohn began to stalk her, forcing her to take out a restraining order against him. Jax is furious and storms off. He reports him to David Hale, who in turn informs the ATF. Kohn fails to heed Jax's warning, however, and instead decides to break into his house, trash his son's room and urinate on the floor.Jax finds out about what he did and tracks him down at Floyd's barber shop. Jax beats him mercilessly and throws him through the window, then is stabbed in the leg with a pair of scissors. Kohn is later arrested for breaching his restraining order. Stahl tells him that his career as an ATF agent is over, and he is taken to the airport in a police car, with instructions to return to Chicago. At the boxing competition, Half-Sack reaches the final. He prepares to take a dive but then sees Clay and Cherry hugging at ring-side. This brings on a sudden surge of rage and he knocks his opponent out. After the fight, he is told that he now owes the club $35,000.

John Teller: Inside the club, there had to be truth. Our word was our honor. But outside, it was all about deception. Lies were our defense, our default. To survive, you had to master the art of perjury. The lie and the truth had to feel the same. But once you learned that skill, nobody knows the truth in or outside the club; especially you.
Jax: Can you distract the doctors?
Tig: Yeah. No problem…Excuse me, ladies. How you doing? Uh, you're doctors, both of you?
Female Doctor: Yeah.
Tig: Oh, thank god. Um, a Doberman pinscher took a chunk of my ass.
Female Doctor: Oh, god.
Tig: Wait, can we just…
Female Doctor: You need to go to the E.R.
Jax: Distract 'em, I said distract 'em, not scar 'em for life!
Tig: No shit, man, I'm serious, I think it's infected.
Clay: I understand you decline Bobby's request for some comfort.
Cherry: Yeah, I did. I'm not about that anymore.
Clay: If I was to ask for some comfort, would you be about that?
Cherry: No, sorry, but your old lady would turn us both into chum.
Tig: Go on, get out of here, before I rape both of you.
Tig: C'mon, it's just an expression. Term of endearment.
