it's nice to think of joey getting his life together. in "cruise to nowhere," he was so annoying at first, but by the end, when he had that "deer in the headlights" look, i felt very sorry for him. early on, he was so great at reading tells and "playing" bobby, but when it came down to reading joey's life and maneuvering him into position for the kill, he was easy meat for bobby. i like how you put such a good spin on the josh-isn't-joey story.

I am so glad you wrote this chapter. I was confused by the show because I couldn't imagine another young man who was used to make money for his mentor after his mentor killed his bookie father. I wondered if Joey Frost had changed his name to distance himself from Phil and his father's reputation, but that confused me too. I was sad to think Joey, who seemed like a nice kid, had turned to crime and was not able to shake the gambling addiction. This chapter was a nicer ending for Joey.
