The entire episode is about luck. If you look closely in the thugs apartment, there is an upside down horseshoe above the door. Horseshoes are an international symbol of luck. If the horseshoe is right side up, it collects good luck. If the horseshoe is upside down, it lets all the good luck out and invites bad luck. See more
