This is Show Snob‘s recap and explanation of Netflix‘s Top Boy season one – or the third series technically – episode four: Bonfire Night.

Episode four of Top Boy starts with an attempt to show Jason and Sully’s warm-ish relationship, humility and stupidity while fishing. They are questioned by racist inhabitants of the seaside town. Then it is Dris’ turn to be a good father; though his mind is on other things it seems.

Haze presses Dushane for the £10,000 that presumably his boss doesn’t even know about; the middle man for the Jamaicans also threatens Dushane’s disabled cousin in Jamaica. Dris suggests a robbery of someone in Bow, East London to raise funds – but Dushane isn’t sure just yet.

Jamie talks sex education with his nineteen-year-old brother. An immigrant, the wife of Sully’s bedsit owner, is caught shoplifting. Though the police release her when they realize most of the stolen items are for her baby as they struggle in England.

In the morning Dushane and Dris prepare for their mission, however, Sully arrives and points a pistol at them. He proposes his money as funds for their dealing – if he can be an equal partner with the former; while ensuring two-to-one favor ratio of profit for himself on the first deal. They give Haze his 10 thousand and take their goods.

Dushane is warned again by Haze to pay up and on time, or else. Though Dushane assures him they will make him look decent in Sugar’s eyes. That concludes episode four of Top Boy.
