...and then we see Mae getting out of a town car at some cheap motel. We then cut to her entering one of the rooms, which just so happens to contain Lester, the emphysemic, supposedly-dead drummer, who asks her what's taking so long with the house, since it's in her name. Which was ridiculous the first time I heard it and, given that it was only said to back up this plot point, seems even more ridiculous now, and Mae apparently agrees with me as she tells Lester Patrick's about ready to fight, so if they sit tight they can get their hands on a lot more than an old house, so he should just relax. Lester, however, reacts in such a way that suggests he might be on something and regardless, would have no problem hitting Mae, which is bad news for him, given that Patrick knocks the door in at this moment. Patrick, in that faux-sunny manner he uses when he's about to crack some skulls, tells Lester he looks good for a dead man, and Lester takes momentary but hilarious umbrage to the fact that Mae claimed he was deceased before getting up in Patrick's face about how the pittance he's been sending Mae is nowhere near what he should have been giving her. Mae tries to get him to shut the hell up, and when he starts toward her, Patrick gets him up against the wall and, after taking a long pause to let the moment sink in, breaks his wrist. Lester howls in pain both physical and emotional (the latter being related to the fact that his best drumming days are now behind him) but Patrick is only concerned with his mother, as he stares long and hard at her before asking if anything she said was true. Mae can't bring herself to answer, so Patrick gets out of there. Hey, what's one more crime for the Leary family, right? Patrick has SOME NERVE acting all self-righteous when it comes to Brennan, I tell you what. Still rooting for Reynolds.
