Rabbit and Olek are playing chess as they discuss the anniversary of Hood's incarceration. Rabbit then mentions that Hood was the one who got him the chess set they are using from a man named Drexler. The job was considered impossible as he slept with it by his side every night. There were maybe three people in the world that could have pulled it off and Hood did it for free. Rabbit then mentions how he was like a son to him and Olek reminds him that he has the Brotherhood and he needs to remember who he is and what happens to people who cross him.
