I am just watching the second episode on Setanta Ireland again and the conversation between Pierce and Faulkner in the hot tub where he is saying about them both being geeks....
Dave Faulkner is keeping his leg out of the hot tub because he has a big ******* lump on his leg from the hammer incident in episode 7.
So the conversation Pierce was having about not wanting to fight friends was when he already knew he was fighting Dave Faulkner.
Was he looking for sympathy? Was he hoping Dave would say "I can't fight a friend either" hug him and tell Dana it's all off because they love each other?
No real revelations, just interesting editing. Proof they mess with things a lot more than we all think.
I think Vodka may be making this into more of an issue for me than it actually is
