This episode examines Lisette Lee, the supposed Samsung heiress who lived a mysterious life of privilege and luxury until her arrest for narcotics trafficking in 2010. The product of an illicit multi-national love affair, Lee was adopted at a young age and moved from South Korea to Beverly Hills. It was there that she molded and shaped various personalities to manipulate those around her. She went to great lengths to get what she wanted; allegedly kidnapping men, setting up surveillance, and wiretapping "team LL:", her crew of minions. The team was formed after Lee became romantically entangled with David Garrett, a street level drug dealer who partnered with her to move mass amounts of marijuana. Lisette chartered a private jet, Garrett got the drugs, and the squad flew 7,000 lbs of pot from LA to Columbus over 14 different trips.
Following a deadly brawl between the Hells Angels and Mongols Motorcycle Clubs in 2002, Cavazos came to national prominence. During his reign as the Mongols' president, he expanded the club's membership by recruiting local street thugs with affiliations to the Mexican Mafia.

During his time in charge, agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives infiltrated the club and piled on the evidence for a federal racketeering indictment. Many Mongols say Cavazos' hunger for fame would be his ultimate downfall and drive him to turn on his brothers.
