'How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast)' Season 2 Preview: Who is Purplerain, Moritz and Lenny's ecstasy dealer?
Purplerain flew the F16 for years and has killed 20 people, according to his own admission
How do you sell drugs? A cursory exploration of the subject on the Internet will give you some prompts (although your IP address will easily give you away). But that aside, to sell drugs, you need drugs.
When Moritz Zimmermann (Maximilian Mundt) decides to open an online drug store MyDrugs with his childhood best friend Lenny Sander (Danilo Kamperidis), they needed to get their hands on some ecstasy. His girlfriend Lisa (Lena Klenke) has returned from a trip to America with a taste for ecstasy. Daniel Riffert (Damian Hardung) unknowingly leads them to local dealer Buba (Bjarne Mädel). In a hilarious attempt, Mo manages to buy a lot of ecstasy from him — drugs that he can forward on his site.
In no time, however, his customers send in their complaints regarding the poor quality of the drugs. Both Mo and Lenny realize that they must change their dealer in order to improve the status of their site. Enter Purplerain.
The negative reviews by their customers leave Lenny feeling upset. Just as Lenny is walking out on Mo (although we don't think he can do it), Purplerain gets in touch with him. Mo realizes that the only way to save the site is by investing in a good quality of stash. But how can he trust Purplerain, a random stranger who got in touch with Mo himself? They exchange deep secrets — Purplerain flew the F16 for years and has killed 20 people and Mo's mother walked out on him when he and his sister were just kids for a richer guy. There, done.
Soon, coordinates are exchanged and Mo and Lenny make their way to a remote location to pick up the stash. They came prepared with shovels and whatnot expecting it to be buried in the ground. Much to their surprise, however, a few minutes into digging a hole in the ground, a Cessna flies overhead and drops a box full of drugs. That is Purplerain — a dealer with his own Cessna delivering goods in the most thrilling way.
His top-quality drugs play a huge role in building MyDrugs' brand name online. He provides them with the drugs until Mo decides on expanding the inventory and asks him for different kinds of drugs. When Purplerain refuses, he gets in touch with Dutch suppliers GoodTimes. Purplerain's identity is never revealed. It is hinted that he dies in the plane crash in the season finale. While we were rooting for the character, we're not quite sure of his death.
All episodes of 'How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast)' Season 2 will be available to stream on Netflix on July 21. Season 1 is currently streaming on the site.
