Don't think of it being simply Patrick waiting to swoop in, have Howson and Arniel Canned so he can take Howson's place, look at like a chance to have someone else, someone respected, watching and giving input on the situation, if changes need made, make them. But do them with a goal and a well-defined plan in mind.
I agree pretty much with this assessment.
