The Game Warden is sitting on her throne, feet resting on her pet.
“Well, well, it is time for a fresh start. The past accomplishments and failures no longer have any bearing moving forward. This is sweet, sweet music to our ears. When we first entered, we had no idea what we were doing or what we were in for. We made mistakes, actually, my pet here made mistakes, costing us victories, but giving us much needed experience. So, our natural talent, got us in the door. Our hard work has kept us here, and now, it is time for to be successful. It is only fitting that we get to start with the alpha and omega tournament. It is time for us to show the world that we are the alpha of this pack. It is time for us to rule our yard. It is time for us to be the top dog.”
The Game Warden begins to chuckle at the puns that she was able to create based on the alpha and omega tournament. Benji barks along with his master. The scene fades.
The studio lights turn off as everyone starts to pack things up. A scream is heard preceded by the sound of flesh hitting flesh.
“I did not tell you that you could take that mask.”
Tom turns, rubbing his reddened cheek to face the individual who struck him. When he see whom the hand belongs to, he stares at them for a moment. The Game Warden senses his stare and addresses his disrespect with another slap.
“Why isn’t your mask on your face? You have not been given permission to take it off yet. And if you show me that level of disrespect again you’ll go back in the cage again, for even longer.”
Tom starts zipping up his mask and falls into line behind his mistress. His body and words show compliance, but his eyes tell another story. A rage burns within them, only kept at bay by an unknown force. He has suffered much at her hands, and it has only gotten worse. With the hormones running rampant she has been insufferable taking her role way to seriously. He isn’t sure how he is going to get her to break character, but he is going to have to do it soon. He isn’t sure how much more of this he can endure. He’s trying to be understanding, and not blame her too much as he believes it is hormones.
When the "happy" couple are alone Amanda's mood changes. It becomes softer and more compassionate.
"I know you don't particularly like this new dynamic we have going on but I really do believe it is going to lead to success for us. In this business I have seen you need to have a ruthless streak. You have to be fearless and aggressive. You have too much kindness in your heart to be successful in such a savage industry. That's why I love you. You aren't that person naturally. Hopefully some of this embarrassment will bring that out of you. I want Benji a ruthless killing machine. I want when you put that mask on for nothing to stand in your way. I want Benji to not stop until the final bell. To show no compassion. To show no respect. To go out there with a single mindset. And that mindset can't be victory. It has to be the complete and absolute destruction of whom ever stands before you. I've seen flashes of that attitude in your eyes at times. I know it scares you to let it out but you have to think of future and your family. That scary person you have within you is the only one who can secure our financial future. And that side needs to come out against Bryan Ford. Start this new era off right. Let it out. Stop fighting it and stop fighting me. This is for you. This is for us. You have to let it out."
"Just be careful what you wish for. You may just get it."
"I am well aware of what I am asking for and what it may mean. But I have more faith in you that you are stronger than you think. I know that when you take that mask off you will be my Tom again. I have faith, no it's more than faith. I know you are strong enough to control that rage. I know you have the strength and moral compass to do what needs to be done for your family. I know you will step into that ring and show Bryan and the world that you have the strength to do what you must to ensure the success of your family."
