Wednesday night's episode of "Hardcore Pawn," was titled “Million-Dollar Dollar Deal – Part 2.” Detroit's famous American Jewelry and Loan is the pawn shop that is never without some sort of conflict, angry people and ongoing sibling and family rivalry.
As the episode begins, the family is in turmoil because of the art that could make them very rich. A man comes in with a Camaro that has more bells and whistles than anything that the Gold guys have ever seen. It has a pop up television; the dashboard rises with a sound system and so much more, but he wants $80,000 for it, more than Les wants to pay, which is $45,000. Sorry, no deal.
A woman comes in to see Karen, and she wants $500 for her coat; Karen offers her $25, and she goes off the deep end. Byron does his thing and walks her out of the door. She screams obscenities as she goes to the parking lot.
Three women come to the counter and see Les and Karen. They want to sell their magic tricks which they have added to their belly dancing routine. They are done with magic for now and need to buy more costumes. So Karen gives them $75, and they accept her offer.
When Seth’s friend comes to the shop and checks out the paintings, the Picasso is just a lithograph. The appraiser is not able to certify that all the paintings are real in such a short time. So Les agrees to $425,000, but it will be in escrow until the paintings are verified by a top appraiser.
As Les is discussing getting a top appraiser for the artwork, a phone call comes in from a Todd Hutchins. He is very upset because the couple claimed the artwork to be theirs. He is willing to fly to Detroit to claim his merchandise. As the season ends, the man arrives at the shop, but his face is hidden from view, and the deal hangs in the balance on this cliffhanger episode of "Hardcore Pawn."
