There’s a pretty stark difference between smug, recounting-his-crimes-to-the-camera Moritz and just-broken-up-with-Lisa Moritz, as evidenced by the opening of “Inspired by Real Life”, which finds him furiously crying in the bathroom and in a terrible mood with both Lenny and Daniel, who have to put their heads together in order to develop the front business. Every time Lisa’s name is mentioned Moritz has an emotional breakdown.

He has plenty more to worry about. His sister Marie is currently riding horses with Buba’s associates, who recognize Moritz and Lenny from CCTV after their encounter the previous day. Jens wants to ask him more about the laptop he hacked into and formatted. And Lisa is spending How To Sell Drugs Online Fast season 2, episode 3 taking solace in the narcotic expertise of Gerda and Fritzi.

To make matters even worse, it’s careers day in school, and a questionnaire reveals that all of the main characters have different color-coded personality types. A business, after all, is nothing without motivated employees, so it’s time for everyone to make an effort in bettering themselves — a matter complicated by the fact that it brings on an existential crisis in Daniel, and Lenny wants to bring Kira into the team. This prompts Moritz to dig up information on Kira which reveals her to be a clever scam artist who sets up fake, free WiFi networks outside hotels and then harvests personal information from the people who log in. She’s a blackmailer, which suggests to Moritz that she’s after their Bitcoin wallets.

Rather than bring this information to Lenny, Moritz instead goes to investigate Kira’s base of operations on his own, and she assumes that it’s at Lenny’s request. Even once he tries to explain that he’s there of his own volition, she won’t accept it, demands that he tell Lenny it’s over, and then deliberately kisses Moritz in full view of what she believes to be a spying Lenny. Except it isn’t Lenny spying, but Lisa, Gerda, and Fritzi, who have gotten high on ketamine and pursued Moritz with the intention of confronting him.

Lisa mentions what she’s learned to Daniel, who gets his wires crossed and assumes she’s talking about MyDrugs. Both end up confessing to different things. When Dan confronts Moritz about both what he said to Lisa about him and what’s going on with him and Kira, it also comes out that Lenny told Kira everything about MyDrugs. They argue loudly in front of the entire classroom, and Fritzi ends up clouting Moritz.

But that isn’t the end of the lads’ misfortune. How to Sell Drugs Online Fast season 2, episode 3 concludes with their meeting being interrupted by two of Buba’s associates. And they’re going to have a lot to answer for.
