His introduction is in the backroom of She She's. He snorts a line of cocaine and enjoys a drink as he converses with Roller about business issues. As he consumes sour shrimp, Clay expresses disgust, spitting the food out and rinsing his mouth with alcohol. He calls out to Toby to get the caterer. As the caterer enter the room, Clay informs him that the food is bad; he then demands that the caterer eat two before having a glass smashed over his head.

Clay returns back to the conversation of business, Roller asking if he would give Desna her bonus.[1]
