...so Patrick pulls up to Stacy Keach's place, whereupon Ed hops out and says he'll meet him at the gym, and Patrick gets a look on his face like you might if you were introducing your new wife to your old one. At least you don't have to witness the awkward, guy. Inside, Ed asks Stacy Keach why he's not training Patrick anymore, so Stacy Keach shows him tape of Patrick's fight with El Diablo, and from the brief glimpse of footage we see it definitely looks like he's focusing on the part where Patrick was getting his ass kicked...
...and then Ed enters the gym holding a rubber ball and tells Patrick to get up against the wall. In my elementary school, that would mean it was time for a charming playground game called "Asses Up," which really requires no explanation, but this is just so Ed can wing the ball at Patrick a few times, forcing him to duck, while explaining that Stacy Keach thinks Patrick took too many punches in the El Diablo fight, which must mean his reflexes are shot. Ed, however, has divined the truth, as he asks Patrick if there was something wrong with his eye in the fight beyond the cut we saw. Patrick admits it but says it healed, while Johnny watches all "Wait, people come back from eye injuries? How come no one told me?"
Up on the roof, Patrick shadowboxes as Ed opines that Patrick's ring focus has always been split between trying to win and trying to please Stacy Keach, and then goes all Boxing Whisperer as he corrects Patrick's stance and reach and then works him into a punching tizzy. Damn, I hope Ed doesn't turn out to be nuts, because Patrick's certainly in his thrall already.
Back downstairs, Johnny comes over to ask Ed how Patrick's looking, but when Ed tells him he has to "unlearn" a few things, Johnny gets his back up a little about how Stacy Keach took him to the title and whatever. Also, I've talked about his height before, but when KAREEM SAID is being dwarfed in this two-shot, you know Pablo Schreiber is a monster. Johnny steps in front of Ed and tells him that they got off to a bad start, but they're going to have to find a way to work together, as there's a lot of promotional stuff still to come. Ed, however, informs Johnny that while he appreciates that he's got a job to do, things will work best if they never see each other, and accordingly, he's going to start training Patrick at night. Johnny smiles sardonically and informs Ed that "we" are still going to need some access, but Patrick comes over and takes off with Ed before Johnny can push the matter further. Well, Johnny, you can always have Stacy Keach coach you for your comeback! (I wonder what part of that is the less likely.)
