He acknowledges that Trick won his last match on his own but insists that he’s here to support Trick.

Lyra challenges Lola to a match, specifically to face Lola Vice, the cage fighter, and asserts that people want to see this clash.

Tiffany manages to finish cleaning Buttercup but is left feeling dirty and in need of a shower, fresh clothes, and disinfection. She jokingly mentions that she hopes Fallon enjoyed the spectacle.

Fallon, however, reminds Tiffany that a clean horse should not be placed in a dirty stall and assigns her the task of cleaning the stall, much to Tiffany’s dismay. Tiffany expresses her disgust at the sight of horse manure, making it clear that this farm work is not exactly her cup of tea.
