Episode Recap

London meets a man named Nick, who has just been released from prison after

serving his sentence for participation in a robbery, and though Nick promises to London that he is going to "go straight", he has, while in jail, agreed to be the car driver for a robbery.

One last "job" to provide him with money on which to live. London disapproves and urges Nick to become a door-to-door salesman as per Nick's promise to his girl-friend and probation officer.

Nick, however, believes in honor among thieves and says that he cannot shirk his promise to his crooked associates.

Accompanied by London, Nick performs his assigned role in an armed bank robbery as getaway car driver.

When the group of robbers stop at an abandoned house to wait until "the heat dies down" and to divide the money,

London mouth-lifts the satchel of loot when the robbers are sleeping and hides it.

The robbers suspect a double-cross by someone among them, and eyes are cast upon Nick.

London pretends to have the scent of the trail to the hidden money and guides the robbers to an outdoor location, where they dig, expecting to find the loot. They find nothing.

London later locks the robbers in a room in the abandoned house, and he and Nick escape. Nick agrees with London to surrender the money to the police, and he is leniently treated.
