Silicon Valley Season 3 finale was a big one, and what a way it ended. With Jared buying fake profile accounts to get an uptick in their daily users and continuing to buy 1k more everyday for a week.
Richard finds out what Jared is up to and confronts him and he confesses, and Richard agrees to keep his secret.
With the news that Pied Piper is going in a downward spiral going around town, Erlich out and about plays a couple of VCs. When it is all set and done Erlich ends up getting a series B offer for funding.
Side note- Its’ total BS that Jared judges Richard for going to sign the offer sheet even tho he has knowledge of the uptick . But it was Jared who bough the accounts. Total BS.
Once Richard gets to the office to sign the offer sheet, he has a change of hearts and comes clean about purchasing accounts from India. Leaving the office Erlich flips out on Richard about not telling him the truth and making him look like an idiot. Monica visits Richard and lets him know that Laurie, Managing Partner of Raviga is going to sell off Pied Piper to the highest visitor.
Laurie runs into Galvin and he makes jokes and first offers 900$ to buy pied piper, but then he says he prefers round numbers and offers 1million dollars. With Pied Piper board voting to sell all of it’s assets and company to it highest bidder, Monica says no and Laurie removes her form the board. Richard says yes to the sale to end the meeting ASAP. Laurie announces Pied Piper has been sold to Bachmanity for 1 million and 1 dollars.
Richard confronts Erlich and thanks him and Big head from buying the company. Erlich lets him know it will take a long, long, long time to regain his trust, next thing you know they are having fun and everything is back to normal. Monica might be fired and lets them know she can use a job and can be paid in stock options.
