Silicon Valley: Runaway Devaluation Season 2, Ep 2
Hooli’s lawsuit scares Laurie off (despite Monica's protests), leaving Pied Piper without funding. Erlich and Richard slink back to the VCs whose offers they had turned down, but all they get is the aftermath of their disturbingly profane "negging" thrown in their faces. Jared provides a twinkle of hope by setting up a meeting with a VC he "bro'd" with on Dinesh's cousin's app, but the team quickly finds themselves victims of a "brain rape." Richard covertly meets with Gavin Belson, who offers to acquire Pied Piper. As Richard is about to respond, they're interrupted by a mariachi band and the episode ends with a hilariously awkward cliffhanger.
