Cut to Coach, who continues to be in face/hair lockdown. He tells the reporters that it's a big game tomorrow, "a lot of pageantry" -- does this mean there will be a swimsuit portion of the competition? Because you know I never mind putting Taylor Kitsch into any sort of double-sided-tape-needed situation. Coach continues, saying that they want to bring the trophy home to the folks of Dillon. "It's been a tough year, they deserve it." A reporter hops in and drops the bomb, "So how does it feel to be leaving?" Coach, tightjawed, says "Excuse me?" Cut to shots of the boys overhearing the reporter asking whether it is true that Coach accepted a position at TMU next season. Coach tries to avoid the question, saying that they're focusing on the game tomorrow, but the reporter presses. He goes very still for a few very long moments before admitting, "Yes, yes that is true" and then walking away from the reporters, but also away from his own team, shot from a low angle, the empty stadium roaring up behind his figure.
Back in Dillon, Buddy is at work, giving a couple the hard sell. Luckily, since it's on camera, not the sort of hard sell he gave Angela. Ba dum bum. He notices Lyla driving up in her cute little red number and excuses himself to go talk to her. He tries to start talking to her, but she just hands him the keys and the title to the car saying she doesn't want the car he gave her anymore. She turns on her heel and leaves as the opening section of a high-school-girl-declaring-independence song ("Walk Over Me" by Dirtie Blonde) starts up. Buddy insists that she needs a car, and she tosses off that she bought a used one "from Crespos." Buddy calls him a "rabid crook" and Lyla turns around and sasses, "I liked him!" BTW, Lyla looks smoking hot in a plunge v-neck white tee and jeans.
