Dave "The Octopus" Corleone no longer wishes to hold and fence the goods stolen in I Was Happy In Shanghai. He informs the team that he has arranged a buyer who will take the entire remaining collection and that they are to meet for negotiations. The Buyer is Telestrian Industries, and the team meets with a representative. Negotiations proceed poorly, and the team decides to walk and find a buyer on their own. Dave accompanies them to the secure location that their loot is being held at, and their business relationship is ended. As the team is loading up Harrier's VTOL, they are attacked from a nearby rooftop, by a team of rival runners. A fight ensues, and one of the enemy runners is left alive for questioning. He points the team back to his fixer, a washed up has-been, Louie Sans, who is known for having a cavalier attitude about putting his run teams in danger. Snow White and Jagganoth go to pump Louie for information, while Growth, Garo and Harrier try to find a buyer. Snow White learns that Louie was contacted by a mystery Johnson, who handled the meet in the matrix, and contacted Louie through a dating app, which Growth remembers is how Mr. Cash Money was getting his orders in: A Dead Man's Treasure. Hoping to bait out their assailant, the team creates a dating profile for Growth, while Growth arranges for a meeting with his father, Ashurbanipal to sell off the Artifacts. The team heads to Cairo to conduct the transaction, but the mysterious johnson tries to convince Growth not to sell. Ultimately the team rejects the advice of the entity that had made several attempts on their lives, and sells the goods to Sader Krupp, who Ashurbanipal works for.
