That meant that Ryan was going to get a new partner. It wouldn't have been so bad if Will was a little nicer. He was high-strung and a perfectionist, the complete opposite of Ryan's laid-back ways.
At first, Ryan thinks Will is just too into drama. He is rude and truthfully, hard to get along with. That is until Ryan starts to understand why Will is the way he is. He has coworkers that make fun of him. It seems as though Will is just acting the way he must.
He starts to realize that it isn't Will's fault that he is defensive. It also starts to occur to him that no matter how much of a pain in the ass his new partner is, Ryan has more than just friendly feelings towards him.
