Only in Detroit
Gold Battle Begins

Black Out! was the 11th episode of Season 5 of Hardcore Pawn. It originally aired on January 31, 2012.


A storm is affecting Detroit, and Seth is concerned what would happen if the power goes out. Les thinks there should be no problem, as he has a contingency plan to keep the lights on with a backup generator. When the power does go out, it becomes a big problem when the pawn shop's computer system goes down, and Les hardly does anything to rectify it, leading to Seth to handle the emergency himself. Also: a man tries to sell a watch, but when he couldn't strike a deal with Seth, he mocks him instead. A woman tries to get her item out of hock, when in fact she actually sold it; when told of this fact, she threatens Les by calling her boyfriend to take action. A man sells a wine press that's been in his family for generations, despite learning that it wasn't as valuable as he thought. A woman sells her doll of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, still in box, but not only it's no longer in mint condition, as the box is damaged, the certificate of authenticity may be stuck in the box. A woman is a day late on her pawn payment for her television -- which was already sold.
