With the formalities out of the way, Axe then looks for the first depositor for his digital bank. Axe sets his sights on Dawn Winslow’s company Fine Young Cannabis, whose account Prince is also trying to land on his books.
Meanwhile, Prince tells his daughters to work on the pitch for Fine Young Cannabis so that they can learn more about the business, and he could benefit from their fresh ideas. Hall relays the developments of Prince’s plan to Axe. Axe makes his move and tries to convince Winslow. However, the negotiation drags out, and Axe, who is eager to close the deal, does not do his canvassing of Winslow’s company. Instead, he uses the research done by Prince, and the deal is sealed.
It is later revealed that Winslow’s company used black market cannabis to maintain its stock levels. Winslow is taken into police custody for the illegal activity. Axe learns that he will also be arrested soon. It was all part of Prince’s plan to implicate Axe, and he never intended to close a deal with Winslow.
