THE SEA WITCH
Richie's past comes back to haunt him yet again when he witnesses an ex-girlfriend's drug dealer boyfriend trying to get drugs without paying for them. Naturally Richie puts his foot (or should I say, mouth) in it, and gets the boyfriend killed. Nikki leaves with both the drugs and $50,000 cash, leaving one very annoyed Immortal drug baron hot on her trail.
