The script said Alex was back to wearing the clothes from the start of this chapter but also that his arm was in a sling. Those two together made me wind up putting the jacket on his shoulders instead of actually wearing it, and I think it's a little touch that goes a long way. He really looks like he's been through hell.

Funny part is that until the chapter was written the fight was going to be even MORE one-sided. I think originally it was just gonna be McShay beating Alex into paste non-stop.

Anyway, not much to say here; I did pay attention to that page where Alex's face is pounded into the floor over and over again to keep in mind where the cuts and wounds were going to be.

But yeah, the line from Blues about buying a private gym on a whim WAS pretty weirdly timed. ^^ We had no clue that was gonna sync up. Freaky, huh?

The original structure of the fight was pretty different, yeah. There was going to be a lot more in the way of McShay dominating and really messing Alex up throughout the entire fight, but by the same token, when Alex got the surprise second armbar in toward the end, he was going to be able to keep it on only for O'Hara to attack him to make him let it go. Wound up making the fight more competitive to give it more follow through, but did that to keep Alex from looking like he was actually going to potentially win at some point.

This gym thing's something that has been planned for awhile, but is genuinely supposed to come really out of nowhere here. The next couple of chapters will be following up on that detail, don't worry.

This is the last we see of Alex for this chapter, with one more page left to go. Setting up the focus of the next big major plot going down there, and it does involve a couple of characters we've seen before - anyone want to take a guess at who?

Yeah, stuff that's been planned a long time and is supposed to be sudden and out of nowhere is weird.

Wow Alex is a complete mess, there are to many characters to try to take an accurate guess, looking to learning more about this.
