At night, Patrick exits the gym and is locking up when he notices that Gus, Brennan's muscle, is there waiting for him, and I love how this dude has nothing better to do than wait for Patrick to emerge on a flexible schedule. He tells Patrick he hears he had company the night before, and opines that Hess is a desperate man doing desperate things. I never heard that particular euphemism for "hooker," but sure, we'll go with it. He tells Patrick that Hess has been cooperating with a joint task force (between what two entities is unclear, but I can't believe it matters to you) that picked up a D.A. the day before, and since he hasn't been indicted yet, it could be that he's cooperating, too. Patrick wonders how much it'll cost to fix this and brags that he's got money, which I'm sure is just what the muscle of the guy he went to with his hat in his hand last episode, AGAIN, wants to hear; regardless, Gus tells him that once things have gotten this far, applying cash to the problem doesn't help. Patrick asks if his "boss" can't make things go away, but Gus makes a big show of saying he owns a bar and is his own boss, and says with such wink-winkiness I feel like I'm seeing Lucille in Arrested Development here, that Patrick should take care of his own business. Patrick opens his mouth again, but Gus tells him he should be careful and stop asking questions, or "people are going to see you as chatty." Thanks, Gus, for giving me a mental picture of Patrick gossiping to Ava about breaking the dentist's arm. "You know how it is when you break a dude's arm, right when it snaps? It's gross, but kind of awesome!"
