Tom Spade is jogging, and afterward, he fixes things around the house, including hanging a sign to Carol's Garden.
He seems to be a man's man.
He goes to his room and gets a gun, exits the house, and blows his brains out on the stoop.

Rooster decides to ask Jack to talk just as Ace is getting into the ring, and Jack rebuffs him.

Without a word, she gets dressed and leaves him in the room.
Jack and Rooster finally catch up. Jack says he needed Bobby because he's nobody and can be whatever was needed for the story. Rooster is a personality and has tons of raw talent. He's the best they've got. And, he'll have his shot at the belt when it's right for the story.
When Jack comes out, Staci tries to dip out, but her friends are like, "Is that Jack? Is he the bad guy? God, he's so fuckin' hot."

Everyone is watching the match from inside. Ace tells Bobby that he's calling this show, and to shut the fuck up and follow his lead.
Ace goes full heel, allowing Bobby to have a moment.
It worked. A heel was born. Crystal is thrilled, and everyone backstage sees magic.
Poc embraces Bobby.
The problem is that Ace goes full heel out of the ring, too. Slamming into Crystal and calling Willie a bitch. He's a heel now, he says to Jack while crying.
It was a great night for sales. Willie is skeptical about Jack's play for Ace, but he thinks that Ace will see it eventually.
