      "The Way Of The Fist" is the second episode of Season Five of Californication   


       Hank continues to consider writing Sam's new movie, then decides against it after a brief but not-so-good meeting with the movie's director, Peter Berg (playing himself). During a night at a local club with Sam, Hank spots Becca's boyfriend Tyler making out with another girl. After confronting him, he decides to talk to Becca about Tyler instead of lashing out at him. He doesn't end up telling Becca what he saw, but Sam and his men decide to teach Tyler a lesson that lands him in the hospital. Meanwhile, Charlie, Marcy, and Stu deal with Stuart, who has exposed himself to a preschool classmate.
