Paul (Ramsay) is Johnny's love interest. Paul also works for Charn as a bar tender. Things go Noirsville when Charm tells Johnny that he's got the hots for Paul. He can't keep his hands off the help.
When Paul refuses Charn's advances Charn gets jealous and tells Johnny to kill Paul. The episode has some great shots of the Bradbury along with some nice noir stylistic cinematography. 7/10
