In the first-season finale, Cam mulls confronting Rene about a recent theft when it involves his and Ben's product. Meanwhile, Rachel makes a life-changing decision that has a major impact on Ben, Edie and Darren.
Rene's parole officer (John Carroll Lynch) wants to see what his client's up to at a meeting with Rasta Monsta's Jamaica-based owner; Rachel is irked by Darren's business proposition to her and Edie; Ben and Cam curtail an obligation to Rene to pick up their shirts from the silk screener.
Feedback from a Japanese buyer forces Ben and Cam to take another look at their business model; Rene's access to a hidden stash of cash is threatened by a relative's divorce; Rachel's desire to spice up her relationship with Darren gets mixed results.
Dismayed by the prospect of attending a dinner party for Rachel's birthday---with a guest list that includes her current boyfriend---Ben decides to make good on a promise to Kaplan for a night out at an exclusive club.
Ben and Cam find a tailor who's willing to make their jeans sample, but only if they can scrounge up the cash first; Rachel contemplates her future in interior design with Edie after meeting with a college friend who's in the Peace Corps; Rene comes up with an alternate marketing plan for his energy drink.
In debt, once again, to Rene, Ben and Cam search uptown and downtown for a manufacturer to help them get their 1970s-style jeans line off the ground. Meanwhile, Ben meets Rachel to discuss the events following a recent gallery opening. Fashion designer John Varvatos appears as himself.
In the premiere of this comedy about Brooklyn entrepreneurs hustling their way to prosperity, Ben (Bryan Greenberg) and Cam (Victor Rasuk) need a quick infusion of cash to pay off a loan to Cam's cousin Rene, who just got out of prison. Meanwhile, Ben's ex, Rachel, is moving on with a new boyfriend, while his old high-school friend, David, could be an important investor.
