If you look carefully though you will notice the hotel is improving bit by bit. There are chairs outside the rooms now (plus the boxwoods, haha). The box of cinnamon rolls is always by the coffee machine and things seem to be a bit cleaner and neater.
Also, this guy's beat is "out of the way places" so he's going to see a lot of motels like Rosebud, not Doubletree.
Still don't know how Johnny became manager and also has to worry about funding repairs while Stevie is in Elm Valley but I don't know that it really matters lol.
Best part for me was that while David was probably a little thrown about the apt confusion he did not pitch a fit or break up with Patrick when he found out the apartment was just for him. Growth, I thought. They are so stinking cute together.
