Stacey's dealing goes awry when he is mugged at knifepoint in the club and Nemo's mural is interrupted first by his friend Vanessa, who demands to tag along, and then by the police.
Stacey is saved by bouncers, and Nemo and Vanessa manage to evade the police. Both young men see in the New Year in the arms of the women they love, having put their bad habits behind them.

As Mack and Yoga Cow enjoy the meat at midnight, Bitch murders them and slinks away - possibly a victim of the disease herself.
