Vladimir takes Renee back to his chop shop and speaks with her privately. She tells him about her German buyer, Ernst Meier, who is looking to buy some weapons grade uranium that's about to be sold on the open market. Vlad tells her that if she needs money, she should come work for him, but Renee says she's doing this so she doesn't ever have to work for anybody ever again. Vlad will get a handsome sum. Vlad will make a few calls, but wants a good faith payment upfront of $5 million. He gives her privacy to call her buyer, so she calls Jack, who arranges for the $5 million. He can arrive within the next 30 minutes. Renee's having trouble being in the same room as Vlad, but says she can handle it.
