She then tells Stephen to resurrect the deal with Rufus and she’ll give him 15% commission and a permanent contract.  At Rufus’s hotel, he makes it clear he’s not interested but Stephen begs him to reconsider. Rufus then hands Stephen a vial of LSD and heads to the bathroom where he snorts a line of coke and suddenly collapses, clutching his chest. 

As the paramedics attend to Rufus, Carla calls Stephen wondering if he’s sealed the deal and he assures her it’s in the bag. As the paramedics wheel Rufus out, Stephen practices Rufus’s signature on the unsigned contract when he hears a knock at the door. A sex worker called Candice barges her way in and demands her money. Will this give Stephen an idea?
