How the trail of casualties over the years has led SAMCRO to a crossroads; first in a series (NSFW)
''Old Bones,'' (season 1, episode 7)
RIP: Lowell Harland Sr.
Death by: Bullets
Reason: When three bodies were dug up, Clay told Jax all were Mayans. Back in 1992, the Mayans tried to expand their Oakland dope business by setting up a charter in Lodi, which SAMCRO couldn't allow. It was a bloody two years. Jax remembered them because his father had died in 1993, two days after he was hit and dragged by a semi-truck while riding his bike.
Result: The club needed to stop the identification of the bodies, but they were too late: After we learned Tig may or may not be into necrophilia, Jax read the name tag on one set of bones: Lowell Harland Sr. Clay told Jax the Mayans had killed Lowell, who'd been a trusted mechanic at T-M and not a club member, because they were going after everyone back then. Clay told Lowell Jr. (Keir O'Donnell), who'd followed his father's footsteps as a mechanic, that the two Mayans buried with his father were the men who had killed him. But Stahl and Hale told Lowell Jr. that his father had been shot in the head three times and buried with the enemy because it was actually SAMCRO who had killed all three.
Reverberations: When junkie Lowell Jr. went AWOL, Clay found him in a hotel and told him he had killed his father because he'd been a ''weak junkie rat.'' Worried that Lowell Jr. would tell the ATF what he's heard around T-M, Clay was going to shoot him. But when Lowell Jr. begged Clay to do it, to save Lowell Jr.'s son Moby from him, Clay couldn't pull the trigger. ''Good mechanic,'' Clay told Tig later.
