|Episode|| The War at Home |
Coach Fitzpatrick was the boxing coach for Mike and Scotty Valens when they were children, up until he molested Mike, which was inadvertently witnessed by Scotty. After this incident, Mike warned Scotty to stay away from him without mentioning why. Years later, Scotty, a detective for the Philly PD homicide unit, was approached by ADA Alexandra Thomas via Lieutenant John Stillman to procure his brothers testimony for an upcoming trial. Scotty is informed that Coach Fitzpatrick molested other young boys as well, and his brother's name came up as a possible witness. At first, Mike denies any knowledge, but after having a nervous breakdown brought on by his memories, and learning of the suicide of one of his childhood friends who at that point was the Commonwealth's only witness against Coach Fitzpatrick, Mike relented and agreed to help put Fitzpatrick away by testifying.
