It has been a few months in Hathian for Rick. He has been stabbed, drugged, shot, and found out the man he thought was his father, really wasn't. He has grown from a wealthy, yet homeless drug dealer, to a suited Made Man. He went from serving and cooking at Slim Goodies, to serving drinks at Bon Temps, while trying to sell his drugs, and even tried to be a cop.
While not all of his endeavors have been a success, with the love and support of his wild red head, he will stay steadfast. His goal is now nothing short of total control. To get big enough that he is nearly untouchable. There very few like this, and Rick wants it. Mainly so he can then just sit back, relax, and raise his kids.
