I never gave my name.

I have a message from pipenko.

I knew you...

I-i knew you were...

Sorry. Hold on.

- Gun!

- I knew you had rocks!


"I knew I'd find you

hiding under a rock."

Well that makes a

lot more sense.

Anyway, that's basically

how you do it.

See, a largemouth bass is

like a predator fish, right?

So for a lure, I'll use,

like, a bladed spinner bait

or, like, a crank bait with

a rattle in it, you know?

Is that Harold trunlow's boat?

That investment banker that embezzled,

like, over $200 million from his clients?


Wait a minute. This

ain't a fishing rod!

Come on! Open the crate!

I have to dissolve

the bodies in acid.

Do you want to stay or go?

So, what am i

allowed to ask you?

- Anything you want.

- Really, anything?


- Why did you ask us to film you?

- -Proof.

Proof? Proof of what?

All right, I'll start

at the beginning.


Gunther is maybe the

most feared hitman

working in the industry today.

He's a fucking asshole.

You know, it's nothing

personal, right?

It's all business.

You want to be king, you

have to kill the king.

And right now, Gunther is king.

But very soon,

I will be the guy

who killed Gunther.

And you're gonna

help me prove it.

Why are you gonna succeed

when so many others have failed?

'Cause I put together

an unstoppable team.

Oh, I got a key up here.

Oh! That's just spiders.

Anyway, this is my

childhood home.

Hi. I'm Donald piznowski.

Uh, no one calls me Donald.

Everyone calls me Donnie.

Or boom-boom. I'm trying

to get that started.

My first job was working at the belfax

coal mines right down the road.

They assigned me to dynamite.

There was this one guy, Jim

shumpansky. He's just a bully.

Just always picking at ya.

"Did you finish your work?

"Did you finish

your work, Donnie?"

And I would say,

"no, I did not, Jim.

"Leave me alone.

I'm a grown man."

So one day, tunnel three's

rigged to explode,

and, um... Someone

forgot to tell him.

It was me.

I didn't tell him,

so he died in there.

I blew him up. That's when...

that was the day I was like,

"i think I want to blow

people up for a living."

It's a lonely life, you

know, killer for hire.

I think Blake is the closest

thing I have to a best friend.

Would you kill him if

someone paid you to?

Yes, I would kill him.

Sometimes I think about what it would

be like to have, like, a family

and kids and stuff,

but then I go like...

I don't know if I'd

be good at it.

My name is Sanaa

mastourch fairouza.

My first professional kill

was at the age of eight.

Why did you start so young?

I am the only child of

rahmat noushzad fairouza,

one of the world's

most feared assassins.

They call him "the nightmare."

People automatically

assume that I benefit

from sharing my father's name, but

I don't feel that that's true.

I just want to be

recognized for my skill.

Killing Gunther's my chance

to make a name for myself

and prove I am more than

just my father's daughter.

Holy shit!

Did you see that shot?! Huh?!

That's my little girl!

Representing! Representing!

Gimme some! Gimme some!

Hi. My name is Gabe beales.

I run tech ops and intel,

technology operations

and intelligence.

I'm sort of new to the

professional killer game,

just, like, assassins

and killing people,

but there's just way more money

in it than standard hacking,

and I'm fascinated

by the culture.

My nickname is "the

human computer."

There's no system I can't crack.

Oh, crap! That's not good.

I'm kind of like a

Gunther superfan.

I'm obsessed with him.

He's the greatest hitman ever.
