On May 13th, Biker receives a message on his answering machine ordering him to attack Hotel Blue, due to a meeting between Russian mobsters and three RAC representatives taking place there.

Biker angrily demands the bartender to tell him how to end his affiliation with 50 Blessings and their phone calls, throwing the man to the floor and causing his mask to fall off.

Subtly conveyed themes of poor people striving for material gains, and of the older generation fearing to be swept up completely by the new, abound as the aging Henchman murders a dozen teenagers with a skateboard surrounded by impossibly expensive cars and older cars being scrapped for their good parts, just as the Henchman says he feels he'll get killed any day now and rejects the more youthful aspirations of the Son; he then dreams of a new car instead of his girlfriend. He awakes to find that his final pay and his car have been stolen by her and that the Son was right. Dejected he takes the pills and attempts to call either Mary or the Son but in his disoriented state dials a completely wrong number.
