Bill can't afford insurance and finds it hard to start up without any financial backing. He wants to do a job for Mike but needs some capital before he can start. Mike refuses to pay him before he starts. Billy decides to return to Jersey as Fred is coming back. Arthur is all over Ivy. She tells him she's not ready for a relationship and she doesn't want to see him again. He accuses her of leading him on and feels that Brian has put her off.
