“Erlich Bachman and His Funky Asian Dude Friend”

Erlich is seen pouting as he sits next to Jian-Yang, who is pitching his Octopus app to investors. They’re understandably confused as they were promised an amazing app, and not one comprised of nothing but eight octopus recipes (no matter how terribly Jian-Yang’s grandmother died). But Bachman seizes on their words and tries to say it was all a misunderstanding – it’s a S-E-E-food app! The Shazam for food! Jian-Yang is upset at his wonderful app being changed and Bachman speaks faux-Manderin to him until he stops talking.

They end up with a promise of $200,000, and only have to get a demo of the app done over the weekend. Jian-Yang quickly states that he’ll go along with it, as he doesn’t want to be known as a cautionary tale like Richard.

But wait! Monica is finally getting something to do on her own, and that’s seek revenge on the guy that stole her office. She loudly has a fake conversation about the SeeFood app and the guy pounces on it, only to pawn it back off on her after he realizes what a couple of idiots Erlich and Jing-Yang are. Now they need a real app or her job is in jeopardy. Oops.

Silicon Valley Jared Woo


We all know that Jared has some deep-seated issues. No one can take as much crap as he has over the years without building up and building up and exploding at some point…and it looks like he’s about to reach that point.

After Richard discovers that the late Peter Gregory was working on a new decentralized internet of his own, Monica lets him look through his archives and discovers dozens of journals of Gregory’s work. He realizes that they both had the exact same idea, but with his tech, they can finally realize it.

“Can I try something?” Richard asks Jared. Hen then lets out a “Woo!”

They laugh and start wooing back and forth, but Jared gets a little carried away by the release and begins bellowing “WOOO!” as Richard’s face turns from jubilation to concern. A typical conversation with Jared, in other words.

Silicon Valley Door Kick

An Unlikely Ally?

After Richard finds out that Gavin Belson has the patent for Gregory’s internet, he’s despondent. He takes Gregory’s files and shoves them into the front closet, where they don’t fit. So he throws stuff out, and they still don’t fit. So he stomps his foot through the door, which gets stuck and forces him to pull his shoe off in order to extract it. He walks off, one-shoed, all while the whole house is watching.

“Yep. Not crazy. Opposite,” says Gilfoyle.

The episode ends with Richard in fully hooded engineer mode, ringing Gavin Belson’s bell in the middle of the night to talk with him. He needs this patent, as this is everything his life has been leading up to, but what’s it going to cost him?
