When Bobby G. complains about the project’s slow start, Peter offers to put his own money into Beverly Hills Gun Club as a sign of good faith. However, when the studio head calls his bluff and takes the ten million dollar check, Peter must scramble to get things back on track before his investment disappears. Having already lost one director to a drug overdose, Peter then asks Wendy to find another. And while he isn’t impressed with TV and independent film veteran Guy Reynolds, Peter finds he has no other choice but to hire the fawning director.
Back on the set with Guy at the helm, Peter gets more bad news when a summons claims that rival producers Rick and Elliott Rothstein own Adam’s script. After taking Adam to task for selling it twice, Peter then orders Lonnie to kill the screenwriter before asking Bobby G. for help. However, while Lonnie only makes it look like he shot Adam for Peter’s sake, Bobby G. refuses to give him any assistance in talking the Rothsteins into releasing their claim on his picture.
When the Rothsteins make it impossible for him to continue shooting, Peter has no choice but to approach them himself. And once Wendy offers half a million dollars of her own money to help him out, Peter is ready to negotiate. Although they quickly dismiss his first offer, the Rothsteins eventually agree to sell their rights for $1 million and sex with Wendy. And though Peter steadfastly refuses to make Wendy part of the deal, one look at Guy’s brilliant first few scenes convinces him otherwise. So after trading sexual favors for the rights, Wendy leaves Peter to finish the movie on his own.
