The next day, Stefan and Zenek attack Jerzy and his lover Yola, but are defeated. They are approached by Assistant, who offers them a job. He takes them to the Professor's lab and tells them to acquire Jerzy's DNA, then kill him. They secure the DNA, and a clone is created, but Jerzy survives. The Assistant explains that from their analysis it seems Jerzy has a full potential to become a pop star, but there was a problem: he couldn't be contained.

Jerzy meets with Yola, but the clone appears and assaults Yola. She becomes angry and leaves. As Jerzy tries to explain, he's captured by Assistant, who mistakes him for the clone. He escapes, but is seen by Stefan and Zenek, who collide with the clone and beat him, before being stopped by Yola. She drives the clone home, thinking he's the original Jerzy. However, as the clone abuses her again, she throws him out of the taxi and drives home.

The true Jerzy is waiting there, but Yola doesn't listen to him. Zenek asks Jerzy to meet under Poniatowskiego bridge by pretending to be Yola. There, Jerzy is knocked unconscious and thrown into the river. He is eventually rescued by the prostitute Lilka.
