Spoilers for Season 2 of 'How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast)'

Season 2 of 'How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast)' seems to have ended on a sudden, abrupt note. Throughout the six episodes, we followed Moritz Zimmermann (Maximilian Mundt) as the CEO of MyDrugs, only to have it completely snatched away from him. And now he is in jail apparently without any friends or money. 

How did Moritz Zimmermann, the 17-year-old who created MyDrugs, an online megastore for ecstasy, go from being CEO to being in jail? When Maarten (Ruben Brinkman) kills Mia (Hannah Hoekstra), it finally becomes clear to Mo who he was dealing with. The Dutch dealers are mere gangsters with a sophisticated front. When Mia wants to opt-out, they tell her the same thing that they had told Mo when he first went to them to opt-out, "You can take a horse to the river but can't force him to drink." This could have been an indication enough for him that this game has now turned deadly.

Following that party, stressed out of his mind, he is driven back to Rinseln. He had just safeguarded the house his father Jens, sister Marie and he was living it by buying it anonymously. While his family is content, for now, Mo is finally realizing the gravity of the situation. He can never get out of working for the Dutch else he will be killed. 

He had taken back control of the site from Lenny (Danilo Kamber) and Dan (Damian Hardung) after they surreptitiously threw him out. At school, he tries to warn them but Lenny simply walks out on him tired by lies. Dan, on the other hand, shows him the mirror.

This is when he takes the wad of cash to the Albanians. When Moritz took his payday money to school and then to Buba's "Albanian" family, he had a trick up his sleeve. There he tells them this is goodbye, hands over the bag filled with wads of cash and leaves. Doro (Maren Kroymann) then instructs the two of her henchmen to find "the other two" meaning Lenny and Dan.

This could have indicated that the "goodbye" meant that Moritz unknowingly put a hit on his friends. But as it turns out, the goodbye to the Albanian family, unlike the Dutch dealers, was actually to protect Dan and Lenny. 

When Maarten shows up on the other side of the lake preparing to kill them, he is tased by the henchmen. Then his hands are taped to his Tesla with the destination back to Netherland. Hence being saved by the family. Remember earlier on when Buba's family calls Moritz and MyDrugs their family? Guess they did mean it seriously.

It gets better. Lenny had installed a self-destruct mode on the website via his Pebble watch which he can disable from anywhere.  Everything on the MyDrugs server will be destroyed in a matter of seconds. A button that deletes everything they had ever done -- 404 Page Not Found. 

The scene is then cut to the present day when Moritz is narrating the tale. "Everything will be okay in the end," he looks into the camera and says, "If it's not okay, it's not the end."

The scene is then cut to the present day when Moritz is narrating the tale. "Everything will be okay in the end," he looks into the camera and says, "If it's not okay, it's not the end." This mirrors reality, where the real-life teenaged creator also visited the sets of the Netflix series having been permitted by the court to do so. What happens next with him, we will only know in Season 3 complete with all the gaps being filled. Season 2 ends on a possibility for a renewal.
