I'm not surprised, of course, that Clay killed Piney... but I was hoping Piney wouldn't bit it, because I really liked that character.
Did anyone recognize what Clay wrote on the MC picture with Piney's blood? Was it by any chance the symbol for this other cartel that's causing problems? I'm assuming Clay intends to frame them for Piney's murder, though that seems like it would be a rather fragile attempt.
There's no way, after all, Gemma will believe it was anyone but Clay, and if Tara finds out Piney is dead before she leaves with the kids, then I'd be very surprised if she doesn't immediately turn JT's letters to Maureen Ashby over to Jax and tells him of her conversations with Piney.
And then there's Opie... Clay was already responsible for Donna's death, and now he's killed Piney personally. Opie will obviously be out for blood when he finds out, and I'm having a hard time believing anyone
in the club - even Tig! - would back Clay after this.
