The episode features Earn, Alfred, and Darius visiting a club. Alfred can't get any attention as NFL star Marcus Miles is in the same club and hogging all of the drinks and women. Meanwhile, Earn tries to get the money from the promoter of the club but he keeps avoiding him. Eventually, Earn finds the promoter after the bartender tips him off about a secret door to his office, but he refuses to pay Earn because Alfred didn't perform. After Alfred finally gets some women over to his side, Marcus buys the entire bar and leaves the club, causing every club attendee to leave as well. Earn then informs Alfred about the promoter, so Paper Boi takes things into his own hands and gets the money by force. The episode ends with another shooting outside of the club, and Marcus performs a triple hit-and-run in his invisible car while fleeing the scene. This time, however, the police link the shooting to Alfred due to his "armed robbery," which Earn, Darius, and Alfred find out while eating at a diner.
