At the Corinthos compound, Cameron asks Joss if they can still be friends. She won’t let him pressure her. He accuses her of standing beside a murderer instead of him and reminds her of all the times he’s given up what he wanted to support her. After he walks out, Jax comes in and gives her a hug. She tells him that her friendship with Cam is over. She unpacks Franco’s killing and complains that Cam won’t listen to her. Jax points out that Jason will probably be freed in the end and there’s no point in losing a friendship over this. Besides, Cam is just scared and probably needs her understanding more than Jason needs her defense.
