  • Hilford must make this work, he needs to pay his debt off to the landlord. It’s his American dream to get the restaurant back and he has nowhere else to go. 
  • If Danny can’t turn the place around and become profitable, he’ll sell Hutch’s back to the landlord and walk away. It’s likely the landlord will sell the property to a group looking to tear down this historical landmark and build a parking structure.
  • If Danny and Hilford don’t stop fighting, the restaurant will fail. Hutch’s BBQ, which is a Pasadena landmark and loved by all the residents will be gone forever.
