He turns to Cameron asking him what is going on there.
'Kristina' kicks Jax and Cameron out of the apartment and Cameron explains everything to Jax. Alexis saved Kristinaís life when she was a baby and that was the beginning of their protective relationshipÖand that hasnít ended. In Alexisís mind, they are still that close. Alexis has broken and Kristina has taken over to protect her now. Alexis has created this version of Kristina and that personality takes over when Alexis is threatened and so she must have felt that way just now. Jax had just told Alexis that she was seen at the murder scene. He understands now what has happened. He has flipped her over and didnít even know that he was doing it. Kristina has confessed to the murder but Alexis knows nothing. So it is true what Skye has said. Alexis is more implicated than Jax thought.. Cameron canít let anyone find out about this.
