May 12, 2017
Dev, Denise, and Arnold are on their way to see the hit new movie Death Castle. The intersecting lives of different New Yorkers are shown. A doorman named Eddie must juggle favors for his apartment's residents, eventually standing up for himself against a tenant who wanted him to hide his affair. His friend goes to a convenience store, where a deaf girl named Maya is struggling with her sex life. She eventually tells her boyfriend she wishes to be eaten out more. Her and her boyfriend discuss it and get into a cab. In the next cab, two women spoil Death Castle for their driver Samuel, a Rwandan immigrant. That night, Samuel and his roommates find no clubs to go to on their night out. They eventually find some women trying to get into their other roommate's fast food place. Samuel convinces him to let them all in, and the group has a good time. The women don't wish to end the night there, so they all go to see Death Castle together, where all the characters from the episode watch, and Samuel sits next to Dev. The title and format of the episode are a reference to the film New York, I Love You.
