As always, the drugs and cash quickly run out and alternative sources of income need to be found. They arrange to put on a sex show for a sleaze bag who pays them a large amount of cash, but the exploitive nature of the act leaves them cold and resentful.

The proceeds are intended to set them up in new lives, away from all the troubles around them, however it goes wrong and Jay is gunned down.
