    Cam and Ben arrive after an excursion in Japan for two weeks to pick up new merchandise from Haraki and it's revealed that the brand is doing well as far as exposure but they need to sell more to pay their bills and more importantly Rene back for his loan last season. While Rene deals with the fallout of making his new girlfriend's behind the poster position for Rosta Monsta Ben and Cam hatch an idea of doing a pop up shop with some Japanese style fetish girl show to boot. Rachel gets back from Senegal without anyone knowing and Ben and Cam learn of their rivals, called the Neanderthals a couple of ex-junkie designer wannabes who have greater exposure. Domingo hooks them up with some girls for the show and their Wall Street Friend a promise of a maybe Jay-Z appearance and the two go on the radio to broadcast their show. Rene makes amends with his lady friend by taking her to the show and with some flowers too but when another guy gets a little frisky with his girl an accidental shooting takes place and the show must be closed down. Ben and Cam get stuck on the other side of town in the subway and after trying to get the Neanderthals to come to their event and taking a hit off some strong green Ben freaks out and they figure out that their story of Crisp is loyalty. In the end they sell 55 units thanks to Domingo and Wall Street and for a debut that's not too shabby. Hopefully we can see the bros and others make it big this season and with only eight episodes as an arc it's hardly enough time to mess around with filler. But it's a good enough start and Season 2 looks already way ahead of the lackluster season 1.
