Cut to the torch;
the torch up to Tig’s face; Jax, Kyle, Clay watching; back to the blowtorch.

Now everyone walks into a garage. And a bunch of the guys circle around one guy wearing a T-shirt. He’s smiling, then upset. He’s forced to take his shirt off.

He’s really upset. He apologizes to each individually. He’s pleading, and the blond one is really mad. They tie him up and light the blowtorch. The guy with the blowtorch looks psyched. Alcohol sterilizes the guy’s back.

They’re in the back of the garage, Teller-Morrow Auto.

Bobby Elvis is in full Elvis gear, because he’s an Elvis impersonator who just played a kid’s thing. Piney’s also there but he’s not saying anything. Tig is going to be able to inflict a lot of violence on Kyle. Bobby Elvis is Jewish. Clay’s just drinking a beer.

We all know these are the kind of things that people do to people in real life
but it seems like such a cartoon in a show. It seems like a kind of erotics for all the men.

In the arc of this show, it doesn’t really matter this guy gets totally mutilated.
