The episode before "The Blood Boy" was "Teambuilding Exercise," which aired in the US on May 14. It showed Gavin initially resisting Richard's idea, but relenting after realising that it will make Jack Barker's Hooli Endframe box obsolete. He also assembled a team to help him put together the platform. He even added Jared and Gilfoyle to the team. As for Erlich, he traded his equity for a Corvettte that Jian-Yang bought using the rest of the funding money for the Seefood app. Periscope also acquired the app for $4 million (AU$5.37 million) after Jian-Yang tweaked it as a unique filter for men's private parts. This episode was written by Adam Countee and directed by Tim Roche.
