All Our Yesterdays
Ganzo is drinking at a bar, when before him appears a youth named Vincent, with a request for Ganzo.
A long time ago in Lawless, Ganzo Alary sits with a woman in Jim's Bar. She pours wine and he tells him that it's enough. Smiling, she says that she has him to look after her, so she can drink as much as she likes. He smiles at her as she takes a sip.
A man approaches her table and Ganzo asks what he wants. The man asks if he's Ganzo of the Moreno Family. Ganzo asks him to tell about himself first. The man introduces himself as Vincent Vanetti. He smiles and asks what he wants.
Vince pulls out a chair as the woman looks annoyed. Vince says that he wants a serious job. Smiling, he asks if he's a serious person, since he looks like a penniless immigrant. The woman laughs and says that he stinks, but Vince cuts her off and says that he did come to Italy on dirty boat and that he is as he appears. Though he has much greater hopes than other men. The lady is annoyed and offers him money to go away. Ganzo slams his fist on the table to silence her. The lady looks embarrassed and everyone turns and looks at their table.
Ganzo puts out his cigarette and asks what hopes he has. Vince says to get a job from him and eventually to have his own Family and become Don. Ganzo smiles and gives him a card. Other people look at them and the woman seems to be crying, holding a handkerchief to her face. The card says 216 Michelle G--- Street, Chicago, IL. 60591. He says to be there at 12 the next day.
Testa fiddles with a camera and says that they have no use for outsiders. Orco scolds him for using that line again. Testa says that it's true. Ganzo scolds him and tells him not to be so set against it. Since they were in the same position not too long ago. Ganzo says that the he has guts, so the don is bound to like him. As Orco sits on the couch eating chips, Testa says that the Family doesn't need someone with guts, but someone who thinks deeply and sees far. Annoyed, Ganzo complains that Testa lectures at the drop of the hat. Ganzo tells Orco to say something. Still eating, Orco says that he's just an outsider. He looks down at his hands and says that if they aren't happy, just break off and start anew.
Still fiddling with the camera, Ganzo asks what it is. Testa says that it's a new toy as a doorbell rings. Ganzo says that he's there and gets up. He says that he's sure they'll like him as well.
Vince extends his hand to Testa and introduces himself. Testa looks at his hand but doesn't take it. He says he's Testa Lagusa as Vince puts his hand down. Still sitting on the couch, Ganzo introduces Orco and says that he's serving under their family for now. Orco greets him in Italian and Vince nods at him. Ganzo says that the Don is out but suggests they kill time with cards.
Orco complains about being hungry, so Ganzo tells him to eat his foot. Vince asks if he should have brought refreshments. Testa says that it would have suited their childish game.
Ganzo asks what part of Italy Vince is from and he answers Savoca, Italy. Testa asks if he migrated because of the economic crisis. Vince said that he heard it was prosperous in America. Orco says that he should be a farmer in South Dakota to become a farmer. Gonzo asks if he went to Chicago to try the family there. Vince asks if he means the Galassias. He says that he did but they turned him away. Ganzo says that they put on a lot of airs over there, and you can't join without connection. Testa says they should do the same, but "someone" just brings in strangers without knowing where they're from.
Vince gets up and puts his coat on the hanger. Vince says that he didn't expect to be welcomed so kindly, but Orco says that no one is and he should realize that. Smiling, Testa raises his bet, so Ganzo and Orco fold. Smiling, Ganzo suggests that Vince does as well. He says that Testa only plays of it's a sure win, so Vince will lose everything if he's not careful. Testa says that he can extend a loan if he has to go to South Dakota. Vince asks if he can borrow money. The two are taken back and Orco scolds him. Testa asks if he's married. Vince says he is. Testa says that they deal in prostitution as well and, if he can't clear his debt, they'll put his wife to work. Vince says he can.
Ganzo throws in money and he tells Orco to do the same. Orco is annoyed and says that, if he can't return it, he'll have the first go at his wife. Looking unfazed, Vince says he'll get it back with interest. He turns to Testa and raises. The two stare at eachother before Testa smiles and then folds. The two are shocked and congratulate him. Testa doesn't look happy as he puts his money on the pile. Vince says he doesn't need the money but wants to join the family. Ganzo says that he's the real deal. Testa refuses and says that someone who takes risks with such high stakes will only bring danger to the Family. Ganzo is annoyed and says that he's just bitter.
Vince interrupts him and says that's fine, but he wasn't just taking a high stakes risk as he looks behind Testa. Testa turns to find a mirror behind him. As Vince put his coat on the hook, he adjusted the mirror that was there. Vince says that he couldn't make out the numbers, so he was waiting for him to bluff with a flush. Orco is astounded but Ganzo is furious at his cheating and begins to scold him. Testa raises his hand for him to stop and he stands from his chair and walks in front of Vince. He smiles and extends his hand, saying that he thinks they'll make a good team. Ganzo is surprised, but Testa reminds him that he was just saying they need someone cunning.
As the sun sets, Testa asks Orco to take a picture of them. Orco again complains that he's hungry and suggests they have lasagna. Testa narrates that "A raison d'etre gives a person power. Friendship is a more reliable tool than a knife." Orco snaps the picture of the three men. Testa says "It's nice to meet you, Vince."
Testa lets Vince, Nero, and Vanno Clemente inside and Testa asks if he wants a drink, noting that he doesn't usually come there. Vince refuses this, and tells him to listen calmly. Vince says that their don has been taken out. Facing a drawer, though he was about to take out a bottle opener, he instead grabs a pocket knife. He then asks if it was Orco's men. Vanno and Nero look at each other. Vince pulls out his gun and points it at Testa. He says that it was himself.
At Corteo's apartment, Cerotto downs a glass of alcohol and says that it has an awesome kick and that he should sell to the Orco family and make three times as much money. Corteo says that he can't stands the mafia. Cerotto says that his older brother works with Fango, who's a new guy working with the family, but that he's a psycho. Corteo asks his to leave. Annoyed, Cerotto asks how long he's going to stay in "this dump." Corteo opens the door and orders him to leave. Cerotto downs his drink and tells him not to blame him for whatever happens. As Cerotto opens the second door, his brother stands on the other side holding a bat. The two are both surprised and his brother asks if he got the sale. Cerotto nervously says that he hadn't because he hates the mafia. His brother head-butts him and he falls to the ground. His brother walks past him and puts his arm behind Corteo's neck. He tells him to sell to the family. He doesn't answer, so he knees him in the stomach and Corteo falls to the ground. He asks again and Corteo refuses. The brother walks into the kitchen, whistling, and starts smashing alcohol supplies with his bat. Corteo tells him to stop, but he continues anyway. About to swing again, he says that they have to nip the competition in the bud. Suddenly, Angelo rushes in and hits the brother in the head with a wrench and he passes out. He turns and looks at Cerotto and Corteo who are both staring at him.
Inside the church, Granchio tries some alcohol. Vanno asks how it is and Granchio asks if it's brand-name. Vanno says that it is, it's the best from over the border, and that he'd never had better. Granchio says that he thought Vanno wasn't a drinker. Vanno smiles and says that you can tell good booze purely from smell. Granchio tells him to take a whiff if his own asshole, then. Granchio says that he thought the Orco family controlled all the routes over the border. Vanno smiles, embarrassed, and avoids his gaze. Granchio asks if they're flinching off the Orcos. Nero doesn't seem to be paying attention and instead looks ahead smoking. Vanno asks how he knew. Playing with his fake mustache, Granchio says that he had that look to him. Serpente can be seen sitting on the couch.
Angelo suddenly interrupts their conversation, addressing Granchio. Vanno and he both turn to look at Angelo and Corteo as Angelo puts his briefcase on the desk.
Outside, Fango approaches Tigre's car and greets him. Fango says that someone swiped a little of their booze. And he's out looking for it. Tigre says that he doesn't know anything and asks who he is and if he's with the Orco family. Tigre opens his door and spits tobacco on Fango's boot. He says he is and introduces himself as Fango. Gatto stands quietly behind. Fango again asks where he got it and Tigre says that he brought it in from "that way" as he points behind him. Fango looks unimpressed before laughing and saying that he's honest. He then steps to the side as Gatto begins punching Tigre with brass knuckles. Fango lights up a cigarette and begins smoking it as he takes off his boot. Still smiling, he rubs the boot on Tigre's face and asks him again.
Avilio says that he wants him to buy their booze. Granchio says to get lost because he doesn't want any of their "bathtub gin." Ignoring this, Avilio pours him a glass and slides it over to him. Instead of drinking it, he pours it on the ground. Corteo is surprised by this but Angelo looks unfazed. Granchio grabs Avilio's collar and calls him a brat. As he does this, Avilio pours him another glass. Granchio is about to punch him when Nero grabs his arm. Granchio steps to the side and Nero lights a match and sets the alcohol on fire. It maintains a blue flame and the three are taken back. Nero puts the flame out with his hand and then takes a sip. He seems to enjoy it and hands it to Granchio as he says that they'll buy it. After drinking it, Granchio says that they could probably stock it after all as he hands the glass to Vanno. Nero slams his fist on the counter and says that he already dumped it out. Vanno sniffs it a few times, then takes a sip. Granchio tells Nero not to get so mad. Vanno then makes a disgusted face and asks Granchio for a coffee. Granchio agrees and leaves with the glass.
Nero asks Avilio for how much a bottle, suggesting 3.5. Avilio holds his hand up, 5, and says that 3.5 is out of the question. Nero laughs and asks how much they can sell them per week. Before he can answer, a man at the front door yells and falls to the ground. A man beside him opens a latch at the bottom of the door and is about to shoot Fango's legs when Serpente appears behind him and puts a knife to the side of his neck, ordering to him to open the door. Vanno says that it seems the old man's getting the works. Granchio tells him to shut-up. The decide to wait and and watch.
The man steps back and Fango takes his gun. Serpente continues to hold a knife against his throat. Fango asks if he minds if he takes the gun. The man calls him a son of a bitch before Fango clocks him with it and the man falls to the ground. Fango apologizes for interrupting and says that he's looking for Nero Vanetti. Avilio quietly asks Nero who that is, and Nero says that he's Don Vanetti's son. Granchio says not to bring his arguments to the Island, that's the rule. Fango agrees that rules are important and says that that's why he's there. He found some booze stolen from then in their parking lot. Granchio says "good for you," so Fango shoots the ceiling and asks if he said something. Granchio says he hadn't so Fango again asks about Nero. He calls Corteo and tells him to come over. Corteo looks very uncomfortable and looks over nervously at Avilio as he walks over. Avilio seems to take something from behind him.
Corteo walks over with his hands up and Fango asks if he's Nero. Corteo says that he isn't, so Fango asks loudly if there are any other Neros there. No one answers so he says that it must be him. Nero looks over to see Avilio rummage through a box behind him and pull out a pocket knife. Fango points his gun at Corteo and says that thieves deserve to die as he cocks his gun. Avilio calmly says that he's Nero. Fango asks who Corteo is then, and Avilio says he doesn't know. Fango says he should speak up sooner as he pushes Corteo towards Serpente. Vanno smiles and looks over to Nero who's watching intently. Fango tells the "New Nero" to come over then. Avilio walks over with his hands behind his head. When he stands in front of Fango, he pushes up Avilio's hat with his gun. Avilio suddenly grabs his gun and shoves it to the side as he pushes a knife into Fango's throat. Fango's impressed and Avilio tells him to let Corteo go. Fango tells Serpente to slit Corteo's throat because he doesn't think Avilio can kill him. Serpente inches the knife closer as Corteo's neck as he tries to push his hand away. Avilio slowly pushes the knife into Fango's throat and blood begins to trickle out. Fango urges him to do it. Suddenly, Nero throws a bottle at Serpente and they all manage to break apart, with Avilio and Corteo managing to jump behind the counter. Fango runs over and pick up his gun.
Fango shoots wildly around the room. Luckily, the counter is iron-plated. As this is happening, Granchio manages to escape. Vanno tries to stand up and is almost shot. Crouching, he tells Nero that if Nero spots him, he's dead. Corteo brews something and tells Avilio to throw alcohol at him. He does, and Fango begins shooting the bottles out of the air. Vanno says that Fango is playing around. Nero says that he must be the crazy guy that joined Orco. Vanno says that Orco's gotten serious. Corteo tells them to throw something and then run for the exit. They listen and after the bottle is thrown, it ignites and fire erupts around Fango. As they run outside, with Avilio holding he briefcase, they don't stop until they make it to where Tigre is parked. Nero notices that Tigre is slumped over in his seat with a handkerchief tied in front of his mouth. He yells his name and runs over and opens the door. He tells Tigre to wake up, but Gatto is secretly hidden in the backseat. He tries to stab Nero from the back, but Nero dodges this and grabs Gatto's arm. Vanno winds up and punches Gatto in the face.
The four men drive along the road, with Nero driving, Vanno in the passenger seat, Avilio behind Nero and Corteo to the right of him. Nero notes that it was something and Vanno says that it was pretty fun, though. Corteo thanks Avilio for before. Avilio asks if the candles were made out of paraffin. Corteo says that if you liquefy paraffin, then mix it with water, it'll blow. Smiling, Vanno smokes a cigarette and says that they can't go back there for a while. He passes his cigarette to Nero and he says the the booze was good after taking a drag and that it'll make them lots of money. Across the river, the drive past the Playhouse. Vanno points it out and starts to pull off his face mustache as he says that he can't wait to show it to the don when it's finished. Nero says that it looks out of place in Lawless. Avilio asks if Nero was there. Nero says that he was as he pulls off his beard and smooths back his hair. Avilio is taken back. He turns around and says that he is Nero Vanetti.
Driving along the bumpy road, the car rocks back and forth as Vanno checks the time (9:33pm). Vanno tells Tronco, who's driving, that it's about time for the cops to make their rounds. Tronco asks why they don't just grease their palms a little. Vanno says that Scusa isn't satisfied with "a little." Arturo asks who Scusa is, and Vanno says that he's the new Federal Bureau of Prohibition head. Vanno says that he heard Scusa took a small fortune from the Orco family. Arturo suddenly turns sharply, knocking Vanno to the side of the car. Vanno grabs Arturo's shoulder, knocking out his cigarette, and tells him to watch his driving. He says that he through Arturo had been driving taxis up until then. Seeming annoyed, Arturo says that all the booze in the back is throwing them off. Vanno sits back down and says that it's at least putting more money in his pockets. At that, Arturo smiles and says that he's going to buy a Phantom once he saves enough. Vanno smiles too and says that after 100 more booze runs, he'll buy one for him. Arturo is overjoyed at this and says that he'll hold him to it. Smiling and looking ahead, Vanno says that that is assuming they're both alive.
Suddenly, Vanno spots a car in the distance. He says that it's them and tells him to hurry. Arturo nods and takes a sharp turn right. They both jump out of the car and begin throwing branches on the car. As the car rounds the corner, Vanno yells to hide. Vanno runs behind a tree. Two men exit the car are shine their flashlights. Vanno sees this and pulls the gun out of his pocket. He hears the car drive off and turns to see it as well. Smiling, he puts his gun back in his coat and stands up. He says that they're gone and calls Tronco. Tronco doesn't answer, but hears a branch break behind him. He turns to find a man that he mistakes for Tronco. He says that they should go back. The man pulls out a bloody knife and swipes it at Vanno; swiping his cheek. Vanno leans back on a tree and Serpente tries to slash him again. Vanno dodges this and falls on the ground. Serpente is about to stab him again but Vanno grabs a thick branch and Serpente stabs his knife into it. Vanno pushes him back with this and runs. Serpente throws the thick branch off his knife and looks around. Vanno runs towards the car. He crawls underneath it, panting. Another car pulls up, illuminating the Vanetti car. Vanno sees Arturo's body; his throat slashed and eyes wide. Vanno is infuriated. Three men walk up. Serpente says that there is still one man as he wipes his bloody knife on Arturo's coat. This infuriates him even more. One of the men walk over to the Vanetti's car. He looks around, nervous, and spots three men shining their flashlight at the car. One of the men start the car as the other car drives away with the supplies.
At the Vanetti Mansion, a band plays and people dance. In their wedding attire, people surround Fio and Ronald to congratulate them. Vanno downs a glass of alcohol. Vanno tells Nero that it's war against the Orcos now. Nero pats his cheek, smiling. This angers Vanno as he bats his hand away. Still smiling, Nero says that he must have clung to the underside of the truck to escape and that it was smart thinking of him.
Avilio, holding a suitcase and Corteo walks slightly behind him, looking uncomfortable. Nero, smiling, says that he's late. Nero opens his case to show five bottles of Lawless Heaven. Nero whistles and says that his dad will love it. Nero sticks a cigar in his mouth and starts to pull out his wallet. Avilio smiles and says that it's a gift. Cortwo is taken back by this. Avilio looks to the side and says that he realizes that it hardly compares to a car, wrapped as a gift. Nero says that it's a Phantom from the Galassias. Vanno seems annoyed by this. Nero takes a sips from a jar and says that it's good stuff. Nero gestures over to the table and says that the groom is the nephew of Don Galassia; the guy who controls Chicago. The three look at him unhappily. Vanno says that the Vanettis own Lawless and they don't need the Galassias' help. Avilio says that's funny, as he heard they lost some turf downtown to the Orco family. Vanno yells that he'd better watch his mouth. Avilio doesn't react to this but it surprised when someone calls out to Nero.
Barbero says that his father is calling him. Nero smiles and says sure. He introduces him as the brains of his operation. He introduces him to Avilio and Corteo. Barbero smiles and shakes their hands. Nero tells them to have fun before walking away. Corteo quietly asks what he was thinking, they came because they needed money. Avilio pulls out a cigarette and light it. Looking uncomfortable, he says that need to get out of there. Corteo says that it's a party and they should enjoy themselves. Corteo looks more put off by this.
In Vince's office, Vince asks how the Playhouse is coming along. Nero says that it's all going smoothly and should be done by the end of June. Del Toro stands silently behind Vince. Frate says to his brother that Don Galassia decided to come to the big opening. He says they have three months, then Vanneti, Orco, and Galassia will be in the same place. Though Frate is happy about this, Nero doesn't look at him as he says "So what?" Frate says that he knows the Orcos have been overstepping lately, but they have to do as the Galassias say, too, suddenly unhappy. Nero says that they do as well. Vince takes a drag of his cigar before saying that he doesn't have much time left. Frate says that that's why Fio is marrying Galassia's nephew. He says that Ronald's a good and trustworthy guy. He starts to say that there's nothing to worry about, before Nero cuts him off, saying that that killed another one of theirs. Frate looks away before smiling and saying that it's because they stole Orco's booze. This infuriates Nero and he says that the route was theirs until three months ago. He says that a family that can't protect their own turf has no future.
After taking another drag, Vince asks if he'd like a cigar. Vince says that when one smokes, they inhale time. He says that they must act carefully and if they go too fast, they'll trip. Frate seems annoyed by this and Nero says that God helps those who help themselves before walking out.
While staring at Ronald and Fio, Vanno stuffs a cupcake in his mouth. As Ronald pulls Fio toward himself, Vanno curses at Ronald to Barbero. He says that if he makes Fio cry, he'll beat the crap out of him. Barbero says that he seems to be in a foul mood. Ronald notices them and smiles and beginds walking over to them. Smiling, Barbero says that it seems "Master Ronald" is paying them a call. Vanno scoffs and looks away while Barbero rises and congradulates him. Ronald ignores him and walks past him to Vanno. He pours himself a glass from an adjasent table. He says that he's now officially a member of they family and asks where Nero is. Barbero saus that the don requested his presence. Ronald looks annoyed and asks that he won't even attend his own daughter's wedding. Then smiling, he says that too much caution just becomes cowardice. Infuriated, Vanno stands and seems to be about to attack him. Barbero quickly stands between them and says that they're keeping it withing the family, but he's staying indoors on his doctor's recommendation. Ronald says that he'll fix their little Orco problem for them. Vanno tries to charge at Ronald, but Barbero holds him back. The three then notice that Avilio is standing there as he says that it's funny. Annoyed, Ronald puts his glass down and asks what is. Corteo stands behind him. Avilio finishes "Watching an ass strut around in a lion's skin." Ronald laughs slightly then suddenly throws a punch at him. Avilio quickly stands to the side, dodging him, and falls on top of Corteo's table. Ronald stands and is about to try and punch him again when Vanno pulls him back. Vanno twists his arm and Ronald asks who the hell he thinks he is before he twists harder. Barbero steps in and tells Vanno to stop immediately. Fio walks interupts, asking what's wrong. Vanno lets go and Ronald shoves Barbero before walking away. The two look ashamed as Fio scolds them before walking towards her husband. They sit back at their table and see Fio comfort her husband, he pulls her close by her back as they walk away. Vanno throws his hand up in annoyance before stuffing a cake in his mouth. Barbero says that teetotalers have it rough.
Avilio and Corteo walk up to their table and Avilio puts a jar on the table and asks what he thinks. Barbero adjust his glasses and asks if it is the liquor they mentioned. Barbero pulls himself a glass and Avilio watches him, smiling. Barbero chokes a bit and says that it's got quite a kick and asks where they make it. Still smiling, Avilio looks toward Corteo. Corteo, looking uncomfortable, he says in the kitchen of his apartment. Vanno laughs at Barbero's reaction and says that he hasn't seen that look on his face in ages. Barbero smiles and asks if they can talk in private. Corteo is shocked and looks at Angelo, he smiles and nods back. Barbero puts his hand on Corteo and they walk away together.
Smiling, Vanno says that Avilio has a way with words. Avilio smiles and Vanno says that he doesn't think they'd been introduces. Vanno extends his hand and introduces himself as Vanno Clemente. Avilio shakes his hand and introduces himself as Avilio Bruno. He says that he thinks they'll make a good team.
Later that day in the cellar, Vanno tells the group to enjoy their stew as he puts bowls in front of Barbero, Nero, Tigre, and himself. He calls it Maestro Vanno's special Lawless-style cioppino. Smiling, Nero rubs his hands together and says that it looks great. He's about to eat some before Vanno scolds him, beginning to pray. Nero sighs and bows his head as well. Vanno says grace and they begin eating. Tigre takes a spoonful in his mouth, but then recoils in pain and throwshis spoon on the table. Nero asks if it still hurts as Tigre rubs his cheek. Tigre grabs some chew and says that he won't be eating for a while. Smiling, Vanno pours Tigre's bowl into his own and says that Avilio's pretty interesting. Barbero smiles as well and says that Corteo also makes a mean brew. Nero smiles and says that maybe they won't have to press things with the Orcos. Suddenly concerned, Vanno asks if he asked his father about it. Nero doesn't answer, so he asks if they're taking Fango out. With says that they aren't. Vanno is taken back and demands to know why. Nero says that Galassia wants the Vanettis and the Orcos to make nice. Vanno slams his fist on the table and stands, asking how Tronco is supposed to rest in peace. He says that he'll do it himself if he has to. Barbero asks if he's drunk, even if he could beat the Orcos, the Galassias, but Vanno cuts him off and says that they won't know it they don't try. He says that they need funds first, so if they have the booze, but Nero cuts him off and smiles, saying that they'll kill him. They other three men are surprised. Nero says that they won't be the ones pulling the trigger.
In Corteo's apartment, Avilio says he'll do it. Corteo asks if he's serious and Avilio asks if he takes Fango out, he'll be able to join the family. Vanno says that it's a dangerous job and they recently killed one of their young guys. Avilio tells him to let him try. Vanno pulls out his gun and bullets, and slides it across the table to him. He tells him on Wednesday night, he'll be spending time at Lacrima's house. Avilio takes it and asks who she is. Vanno says that she's Fango's mistress and that her apartment is across from the Lawless Chronicle. Avilio asks what he should do about her. Vanno looks down and rubs the back of his head. He says that he can kill her as well. Vanno asks if he'd ever killed him before. Avilio says he hadn't, so Vanno says that he's getting a late start then. He looks up, and scratches his chin, starting to talk about his first kill. He trails off and stands up, saying he'll be in touch later. He pats Avilio's shoulder and then leaves.
After he leaves the room, Corteo says that teaming up with him is insane. Avilio agrees and says that the whole world's gone mad. Corteo looks horrified at him and then Avilio hands him the letter. Angelo says that they claim to be his dad's best friend and want to help him with my revenge. He light his cigarette and says that it's bizarre and explains that they claim to be his dad's best friend, and want to help him with his revenge and that He's been handed everything, even the names of the men who stole the people he loved. Corteo reads through it, horrified.
On Wednesday night, parked outside Lacrima's, Cerotto leafs happily through a stack of money in the backseat of a car. In the front seat, Vanno says that he'll get the other half after he succeeds. Cerotto agrees and slides it into his coat. Avilio hands Cerotto a bottle and tells him he'll be fine. Cerotto takes a swig and then hands it back. Avilio also takes a swig, but instead spits a mist on his coat sleeve as Cerotto stares in awe.
Serpente sits in a car close to the buildings attrentance. He notices Avilio stumbling towards the entrance and sitting on the steps. Angry, he gets out of his car and walks towards him. Serpente tells him that he stinks and asks how soused he is. He then kicks him and says that he can't sleep there. Avilio looks up, but his face is covered by a scarf and a toque, and says that his friend lives there. Serpente yells that he doesn't care and kicks Avilio onto the sidewalk; face down. Serpente kicks his again before Cerotto yells out to him. He runs over and, smiling, offers him some alcohol from his flask. He suggests that they go to the car, as they're too conspicuous there. Serpente kicks Avilio's stomache before fallowing him. As soon as Avilio sees them enter the car, he stands and enters the building.
Avilio goes upstairs and picks one of the lock on Lacrima's appartment. Inside, Fango can be heard asking someone to do it "harder" a few times. Avilio takes off his face scarf.
Outside, Vanno drives his car past the enterence and Serpente, how is laying back in his car, drinking from the flask.
Inside Lacrima's bedroom, Fango pants with slashes and blood across his back and his arms tided above his head. Smiling, he looks back and tells her to keep going. Lacrima smiles and begins whipping his back; calling him a pig. He begins panting and smiling. He turns around and looks in the mirror, only to see Avilio pointing a gun wrapped in his scarf. He quickly flips over as Avilio fires. Fango falls onto the ground and Lacrima is knocked back as she screams.
Smiling, Fango asks if his mother ever taught him to knock as he fishes something out of his pocket. Avilio approaches Lacrima with his gun drawn. She begs him not to kill her but he motions her to move over. Lacrima doesn't understand and Fango uses this as an oppertunity to quickly move a knife in front of her neck. Fango says that he likes it and that he's getting chills all over. He says it's getting fun and asks if he wants to join in and dares him to fire. Lacrima again begs him not to as Fango begins reaching behind him for his gun. Fango pushes his gun into her armpit and begins pushing it in and out slowly, in a sexual manner. Fango agai tells him to shoot one off already. Fango shoots, missing but injuring Lacrima slightly. He then pushes her onto the ground and begins shooting at him. Outside, Serpente hears the gunshots and sits up. Avilio shoots back, but misses as well. Fango returns fire and Avilio hides behind the wall. Fango manages to grab his clothes and runs out the window in only his pants. He jumps from the balcony in and barely manages to make it onto the adjacent roof, cutting his foot in the process. Avilio runs out behind him. He aims at him but Serpente suddenly barges in, stopping him. Serpente reconizes him but, before he can do anything, Vanno clocks him with his gunand Serpente colapsies on the bed. Avilio walks in and Vanno asks where Fango is. Avilio looks down to see Lacrima laying on the ground, crying, shaking, and bleeding from her armpit. Vanno asks if he got away and Avilio says that he had and apologizes. Vanno says that they knew he was a tough one and that it's not his fault.
Vanno looks down at Serpente and notices his knife; he realizes that he is the same man as before as the handle looks like a serpent. He tells Avilio that he's the one who killed Arturo Tronco. Avilio asks if it will make trouble; a Vanetti killing an Orco. Vanno says that they'll go to the graveyard in the old village. Suddenly, sirens can be heard in the distance and Avilio says he'll meet him there.
Vanno arrives in his car and takes Serpente from the car. Serpente's arms are tied behind his back and holds a gun to his head as they walk forward. Vanno prays and apologizes for his sins. They arrive at a grave and Vanno says that this is where they layed Arturo to rest. He tells Serpente that he was a good guy and he liked cars. As the sun rises, Vanno tells him to start praying as he undoes his gag. Serpente kneals on the ground and begs for his life as Vanno raises his gun, saying he doesn't want to die and promises not to kill anyone ever again and promises to cut ties with Orco and Fango. He asks if he would kill him in front of Tronco. Vanno asks if he isn't going to pray. Serpente begs him not to and yells that he doesn't want to die. Vanno coldly says that he sees before shooting Serpente to death. He falls to ground and Vanno asks God to have mercy on Serpente's soul as he crosses himself. Behind him, Avilio can be seen in the shadows of the trees.
It flashes back to when Avilio showed the letter to Corteo. Avilio tells him that, that night, the ones who killed his family were Vincent Vanetti, his son Nero and Vanno Clemente.
As soon as Vanno turns around, Avilio shoots him before he can react and Vanno drops his gun as he begins bleeding from his stomach. He gapes in shock as he clutches his stomach and falls to the ground. Vanno asks who he is. He says that his name is Angelo and he's the son of a man he killed. The son of Testa Lagusa. Vanno gasps before Angelo shoots him again.
Back at the cellar, Nero suddenly punches Angelo in the face, knocking him back. Barbero steps between them and tells him to calm down, saying they should hear his side of the story first. Angelo wipes his mouth and says that Serpente stole Vanno's gun. He says that he shot Serpente, but it was too late. Barbero asks if his hands were tied. Avilio says that Serpente said he'd let Avilio pray, then he tied up Vanno. Nero tells him to take him to where it happened.
At the graveyard, Angelo walks in front of Barbero and Nero. He says that it's over there. As the scene comes into view, Angelo is shocked to find Vanno lying flat on the ground, but Serpente's body is nowhere to be found. Nero pushes his gun into Angelo's back, so he slowly looks over his shoulder.
Sleeping at his table, Corteo awakens to find Avilio standing above him, smoking. Coreto asks if he's okay and then gets up to make some coffee. Angelo asks if he was there the whole time. Coreto confirms this. Corteo asks if Fango is dead, and Angelo says that he botched it, with Fango at least. He explains the situation, how he killed Vanno after Vanno killed Serpente, and how they suspects now that he killed Vanno or is working with the Orco's. To clear suspicion of himself, he must bring Serpente's body to the Vanetti's. Coreto asks where his body is. Angelo smiles and teasingly asks that it wasn't him.
At Cerotto's Bar], Cerotto stands behind the counter, seemingly distracted as he wipes a glass. He suddenly drops it. As he goes to pick it up, Corteo appears on the other side of the counter. This surprises Cerotto and he says that he's busy. Cerotto again begins to pick up the glass shards with his fingers as Corteo asks where he was the night before. He nervously answers that he was drinking with a friend all night. Corteo asks if he was near Fango's apartment with Avilio Bruno and Vanno. Before he can answer he cuts his finger and it begins to bleed. He says that he was but that he didn't do anything as he sticks his finger in his mouth. Corteo says that Avilio is looking for him because Nero ordered him to kill him.
This shocks Cerotto and he asks why he would do that. Corteo explains that Vanno was killed. Corteo asks if Cerotto was behind it. Cerotto adeptly denies this and says that they've got the wrong guy. He finally curses and walks over to a bottle of alcohol and pours himself a glass, spilling some on the counter. He then gups it down before saying that he can't stay there. He walks over to the cash register and grabs cash out of it, saying that he has to flee. Cerotto says that he hadn't told Avilio about that bar and asks what really happened because he might be able to help. Cerotto says that he didn't kill him.
At Ottomi Orco, Don Orco and his men sit around a table. A chef, a waiter, and his men nervously watch as Don Orco tries his lasagna. The don puts his fork down and beckons for the chef to come closer. As the chef bends down, the don takes his hat and spits his food into it. His men look around uncomfortably. The don says that there isn't enough butter. The chef frantically explains that last time he said there was too much butter. The don explains that Lasagna is about harmony, not math. The chef drops to his knees, and begs him to give him another chance. Orco says that he didn't feed them lasagna, but pig slop. He asks his men if anyone liked it. None of them speak up so Orco calls over his men and tells the chef to give his regards to the pigs. As the chef is dragged away, Fango approaches the table, telling them to have a look.
Fango puts his bare foot on the table, and don Orco remarks that he got some bug bites. Smiling, Fango says that someone tried to run a hit on him the night before. He says that he didn't know the person, but that it must have been Vanetti who arranged it. Still grinning, he suggests that they take them out. This angers Orco and he tells him to shut up as he tries to stab his foot with his fork. Fango, unfazed and still grinning, easily pulls his foot off the table in time. Orco asks if he has any proof, and Fango asks who else it could be, since he, Fango, has been taking huge chunks of their turf, after all. He grabs a fork and then sticks it into Corvo's lasagna. Then faces him as he continues to say that they've all just been stuffing their faces there like pigs. Corvo, offended, begins to stand up as Fango quickly puts his fork into Corvo's neck, drawing blood. He takes the fork off as he spits his lasagna onto the table, saying that it doesn't have enough butter.
Don Orco says that the Galassias want the Orcos to make nice with the Vanettis, and that he's not about to start a war over a few cuts on his feet. Fango yawns and says that he'll just do things his own way. As he stands up, he asks if any of them have seen Serpente. Corvo jokes that maybe one of the Vanettis seduced him away. Fango stabs him in the hand with a dork and begins to twist it. He begins to walk away as everyone stares in shock and Corvo pulls the fork out. Fango remarks that it's a nice feeding trough that he's got there.
Wrapping his hand, Corvo curses at him. Orco tells him not to bother, since he's bound to already have enemies.
Back at the bar, Cerotto tells Corteo that he went to Fango's apartment with Avilio and Vanno. But all he did was offer Serpente some booze. He knew things had gotten bad, but he couldn't help getting curious. He saw Vanno leaving the apartment with a body and put it into his car. So he hailed a taxi and followed him. There, he found Vanno and Serpente's bodies. Corteo asks if they took each other out. Cerotto says that he's pretty sure he was still alive when Vanno carries him out of the apartment. Corteo says that with Serpente's body gone, it looks like Cerotto killed Vanno and helped Serpente escape.
Slamming his fist on the counter, Cerotto curses and says that he got greedy. Coreto asks what he means. As he turns around, Cerotto says that he has to tell him brother before suddenly gasping. At the door, someone is standing behind one of the curtains. Avilio walks through and points a gun at him. He begins to back up and falls to the ground when he meets the counter. He begs Avilio to wait and says that he didn't kill Vanno. Avilio calmly asks what happened to Serpente's body. Looking ashamed, Cerotto looks down and says that he sold it to Scusa. Avilio bends down, still pointing the gun at him, and tells him to take him to the body and that if it's not there, he'll kill him.
Outside of Cerotto's Bar, Serpente tells Tigre that if word of Serpente's body gets out, it's going to cause a lot of trouble. Tigre spits on the ground and says that he killed their Vanno. It's an eye for an eye. Serpente asks what Nero will do to Avilio if he doesn't find the body. Smoking, Nero says he doesn't know. Tigre says that they came out. Tigre says to himself for them to show them the way.
Ganzo is shocked that Vanno is dead. He, Vincent Vanetti, Ronald Galassia, and Frate Vanetti sit at a long table as Scusa says that as far as they can tell, they took each other out, but Vanno abducted and killed a member of the Orco family. Ronald calls him a meddling idiot. Frate asks where Serpente's body is and Scusa tells him not to worry, as he has it safely in custody. Infuriated, Ganzo stands and ask if he thinks he can blackmail the Vanettis. Scusa says that he understands his anger, but suggests that they discuss it calmly. Frate asks how much. Ganzo snaps at him to stay out of it, because they don't need "some kids" opinion. Ronald asks what choice they have. If it gets out, it'll start a fight with the Orcos, and the Galassia's won't stand for it. Ganzo is angered by this. Ronald turns to look at Frate, and they smiles at each other. Scusa asks if he'll buy it. Vince says that he prefers to keep things simple; that's why he dislikes that sort of haggling and tells him to remember that. Vince sighs, annoyed, and tells him to first bring the body there, then the'll talk. Scusa scoffs at this.
Fango asks if Serpente is dead or not, and suggest that they just asks them. Gatto asks if he means at the Vanetti Mansion. Fango asks if he has a better idea. Gatto says that Don Orco doesn't want Fango starting trouble. Fango says that Orco won't be around much longer. Suddenly, Fango spots Tigre, Barbero, and Nero driving by in front of them. Fango smiles and slams on the gas and pulls the wheel sharply, following them. Fango says that it's their lucky day as he yells "yahoo."
At some building, Cerotto says that it's set to be demolished soon. He says that it's the perfect place for Scusa's men to hide the stuff they've seized. Angelo picks the lock and he and Cerotto enters behind him. Cerotto says that the room behind is the room and suggests that they go get it out. Angelo hears someone walking down the hall and pulls out his gun, but instead finds that it's Nero.
Back at the Vanetti Mansion, Ganzo is shocked that Ronald suggested that they kill Nero. He says that they don't even know for sure that Nero killed Serpente, and they lost Vanno. Ronald laughs and asks how stupid one'd have to be to kidnap someone and then get themselves killed. Ganzo stands, inraged, but Vincent tells him to calm down, saying he'll ruin his brain, like he did. Del Toro stands quietly behind him. Ganzo says that nothing good's happened since he came around. Frate says that one of his brother's men was killed by Orco recently. He says that Vanno probably killed Serpente to get even, and he bets Nero knew about it. Ronald says that, either way, he's already made fools out of them. He says that he doesn't' think Don Galassia will forgive Nero for it. If they don't kill him, the Galassias will just get personally involved. Vince cuts him off and says that he sees what he's saying, but orders him to leave Nero to him. Ronald says that if he insists, go right ahead, but he's the one who'll have to wipe his kid's ass for him. Ganzo says that it's about time he outgrew diapers himself. Vince scolds him slightly for this. Before leaving, Ronald turns to Frate, but Frate is taken back and looks away. Ronald smiles before exiting. Gonzo calls Ronald a brat and Frate says that they'll let him escape. Frate says that the family tried to kill Nero like the Galassias wanted, but he was too sharp, and left town before they got to him.
Corteo sits outside in the passenger seat of the car. Barbero sits in another car. They both notice a red car driveby and Barbero gets out of the car. Tigre sits on the steps and notices a group of kids playing with a ball. He smiles and spits to the side, but actually spits on a boot. Fango remarks what a coincidence it is. He says that they have some more fun. Gatto punches him in the back of the head with medal cuffs on his hands and Tigre falls on the ground. Avilio sees this from the window. Fango gets on top of him and asks if he's with Nero. Tigre doesn't answer and instead spits just below Fango's eye. Fango smiles and says that he must want a reward as he wipes his face. Fango takes a drag and then takes it out of his mouth, slowly inching it towards Tigre's face. He tells him not to be modest and take it. Tigre curses him, and Fango says that it must get him hot as well. With the cigarette inches from his face, Tigre says that he's not like him. Suddenly they're interrupted by glass breaking. The three stop and look up.
In the room, the door knob slowly turns and then is kicked open. Fango pushes Tigre in front of him with a gun to his head. Gatto pulls out his gun as well as they both look around the corner. In the room, Nero holds a gun to a man who appears to be Serpente (but whose head is covered in a sack). Fango says that it's just sad that he got captured as he laughs. "Serpente" mumbles something but seems to be gagged. Fango asks if the man with the gun is Nero, and he confirms he is. Fango says that he'd been hoping to meet him. Fango suggests that they make a trade. Fango tells Gatto to go first. He drops his gun to the ground and slides over. Fango says that they're next. They'll put them down at the same time. They both crouch down and slide their guns on the ground. Fango then says that they'll both start them walking at the same time. Tigre and "Serpente" begin walking forward. Fango says that Avilio sure suprised him the day before. Nero says that he's a good guy. Fango notices something and says to wait. Fango says that Serpente seems to have lost a little weight and that his clothes have blood on them. He glares for a second, then smiles and says to keep walking as he seems to be scratching his crotch. Fango actually pulls a gun out and points it at "Serpente"'s head. Before he shoots, the man suddenly kicks the gun upwards and pulls out a knife, swiping it him. Fango laughs and jumps back. Fango manages to kick him against the wall and the man falls to the ground. He pulls the sack off his head, revealing it to be Angelo. Fango says that he thought he smelled something fishy about him. Cerotto comes out and throws a gun over to Nero. Nero tells them to run as he aims it. Before Gatto can shoot Angelo, he is shot in the shoulder and drops his gun. Tigre and Cerotto run out the window. Nero shoots at Fango, but he escapes out the door. Gatto hides behind a bookshelf and shoots at Angelo, but misses. Angelo manages to open the window and jump out onto the stairs. Nero and Gatto shoot at each other but they are both behind cover. Suddenly, Fango runs in and picks up a gun. He runs behind where Nero was hiding, only to find the window open and Nero gone.
Nero and Avilio walk through China town slowly. He thinks about the past. They look at Serpente's body and he asks Angelo if he's the one who killed Vanno. Angelo says that he is. On the street, Nero looks back and stares at Angelo. They both stop and look at each other before Nero goes forward and Angelo walks forward.
Back in the room, Fango finds Serpente's body dressed only in his underclothes. Gatto is distressed and curses as Fango turns to look at himself in the mirror. Fango smiles and calls Gatto an idiot, asking why he has a long face. He runs his tongue along the sharp side of his blade and says that they can declare war on the Vanettis now.
The car drives quickly along with Barbero driving, Nero in the passenger seat, Angelo behind Nero and Corteo behind Barbero. Barbero notes that someone is driving fast behind them. The car drives in front of them and Frate can be seen inside. They both park by the docks. Frate tells Nero that he has to leave the city as soon as possible and that if anyone sees him, it won't end well. Nero asks if there is a better way. Frate say that he won't die, and that should be enough. Barbero asks if he should accompany him and Frate answers that he has to stay because they can't run the moonshine business without him. Barbero says they still can't let him go alone. Nero tells him not to worry; he's just going for a quiet drive in the country. Angelo asks why not take him with him. He says that Fango seems to have committed his face to memory, he doesn't want to run into him again. Nero asks if he can drive and Angelo replies he can. Nero admonishes Nero, but he says that Angelo will work. Barbero asks if he'd decided on a place for the funeral. Frate answers the Riverside Cemetery. Angelo turns to light a cigarette, and Corteo is horrified to find the Angelo is smiling.
At the abandoned apartment, Scusa finds the window open and asks out loud what's going on. He finds that Serpente's body is missing and grumbles Cerotto's name.
On a rainy day, a group stand around a coffin, including Ganzo and Frate. Frate looks up and notices Nero and Angelo standing behind a tree in the distance. Nero tells Angelo to go back to the car without him. Angelo does so silently. After he does, Nero puts his hand against the tree and then begins crying against it. He falls on his knees. Angelo turns around and sees this, with a blank expression on his face.
Angelo and Nero drive along a dirt road, not saying anything.
A man in a black suit dials a number. When he reaches a bearded man, he says that there's two of them and to kill both of them. The man hangs up, not saying anything as he picks up his knifes as his hunting dog lies on the floor.
The episode opens with Vanno Clemente and Nero Vanetti sitting in a speakeasy. Cerotto is also behind the counter. Vanno is drunk and is upset with Nero about his younger sister, Fio. He wants to know why Nero didn't stop their marriage, and Nero says that it was her decision. Vanno says that she's marrying a guy that she doesn't even love just so she can protect her family as he takes another drink of his booze. Nero thinks that he's had enough, but Vanno tells him to shut up.
Vanno then asks about what Frate thinks about it, and Nero says that he doesn't know because they don't talk anymore. Vanno says that it should be that complicated and that they're brothers, so they should talk before he passes out. Nero remarks that Vanno doesn't even drink, and that it's more complicated than he thinks.
In present time, Avilio is driving Nero. Nero says that he's hungry and says that they've been driving for a week now, so he should be able to drive a little faster. Avilio says that he'll hit something again if he does, but Nero still thinks he should drive faster and pushes on the gas for him.
On the side of the road, a Mexican man tries to hitch a ride from the pair but they drive right past him, soaking him and his dog.
Avilio and Nero stop at Jinny's diner for breakfast. Nero enjoys his food and asks the waitress if there's anywhere they can stay for cheap. She says that there's a little town ahead called "Khota" just ahead. After she walks away, he tells Avilio that he's worried about funds after "someone's" crash. Avilio says they should sleep in the car, but Nero says he can't sleep unless he can stretch out his legs. The waitress suggests an auto camp. Avilio quickly stands up to leave and Nero is forced to come along as well.
The Mexican is again trying to find a ride. He steps in front of a man riding a horse and pulling a buggy. The man is forced to stop his horse and scolds the Mexican mad, spitting on his sombrero.
Avilio and Nero pull up to the camp but Avilio doesn't clutch before breaking, causing him to almost run over a man waiting at the gate. Nero reminds him to clutch. The man directs them where to go and Nero apologizes and gives him a tip. As they drive away, the man yells at them to be more careful and calls them idiots.
Getting out of the car, Nero stretches out and remarks that he hasn't been camping in ages. He asks about Avilio but he just answers that he's going to get some water. Nero goes with him and helps pump.
As they walk through the park, Avilio spots an older and younger brother that look very similar to him and his younger brother as children. They eventually come across 2 nuns and a group of children about to play with a piñata. Nero says that it brings back memories and asks if Avilio's ever used on. He says no. The boy eventually hits it and everyone clamors for the candy. Some of it falls by Avilio's feet so a young boy comes up and asks him if it's okay to take it. Avilio looks uncomfortable and says to knock himself out. Nero walks up remarking that the kid's cute and says that Frate was a lot like that when he was little.
Nero walks over to the nun and tells her something. She tells the children to gather around because he's going to show them something. He gives her the name Marte and she tells them to go fetch some balls for him.
Nero manages to juggle three balls which impresses the kids. They all clap at the end. The same boy from before points at Avilio and asks what he can do. Nero says that there's "no use asking him" because "he doesn't have a scrap of human kindness in him." As he says this, though, Avilio manages to steal his wallet without him noticing. Nero is shocked and asks if it's his. Avilio puts his wallet back and Nero asks if he's some kind of pickpocket. In this time, Avilio also managed to steal his belt. Nero steps to get but his pants sag, causing him to trip on them. Avilio catches him, but his pants fall down, causing all the kids to laugh at him. Nero seems annoyed but the kids begin clapping. The kids begin trying to pay him in candy, so Nero takes off Avilio's hat and hands it to him. He uses it to collect the things they give him. As he holds out his hat he begins to smile.
Back at their camp, Avilio tries to juggle but can't. Nero tells him to start with just one and to make sure not to raise his hands too high. He tells Avilio that Vanno was even better than him.
Back at the cart, the Mexican man is now riding the hourse and pulling the buggy alone with his dog. He looks at a picture of a young Nero and Frate.
Nero says that he was about 10 years old when a circus troupe in town. He says that he and Vanno really wanted to go, so they slipped out of Sunday mass and swiped some money from Vince's wallet. He found out right away and beat Nero up. He says that it was fun, though, having something like that come to a nothing town like theirs. He says that for a while they practiced together, just like Avilio was. It was all they thought about. They showed Fio and Frate and they went wild, though they grew board pretty quickly.
Nero asks if Avilio's an only child. Avilio lies and says yes. He says that he then went on the be a gangster. Nero says that it explains his little trick. Avilio says that his hands shook at first, but now they move before he even thinks about it. Avilio asks about his first job and Nero says that he went to lean on a guy who was filching money off the family when he was 14. He says that he thinks him name was "Lagusa" or something like that. He says there were four of them, including him. He says that it was lousy work. Avilio asks if he killed him, and Nero says that he made a move on them first. After that, there was no stopping it. He says that he shot at a kid who ran away, but he didn't get him. He says that ever since that day, he's just thrown himself into it. Avilio jokes that now he's just a penniless runaway. Nero laughs and agrees, saying he's a camper who does juggling on the side.
After Nero falls asleep, Nero reads the letter he was sent again. He looks it over, and says that there was one more person.
On the way out, Avilio again almost hits the man waiting at the gate. Nero laughs and says that he did it on purpose. Avilio confirms this. As they step out of the car, a police man walks up to them. He tells them that if they want to make trouble to go elsewhere. Nero asks if there is anywhere that they can get a drink and slips him some money. The police officer tells him about the drug store up the way and tells him to say that Nick sent them. Nero thanks him and walks away and Avilio puts his hand on his shoulder and offers him a smoke. He doesn't smoke, so Avilio walks away. Up the street, it is revealed that he pickpocket Nick. Nero remarks how tacky his wallet it.
Mad Mack's dog sniffs the ground around a parked truck. The man sleeping in the back sits up, noticing Mad Mack. He calls out to him and apologizes for bothering him, but asks for his help. Before he can finish his sentence, Mad Mack spits at him and it lands on his hat. The man curses at him as he rides along on his wagon.
At a small shot, Nero calls Barbero and says that they just got to a town called Khota. Barbero tells him not to stay long, but Nero says that they only just got there. Barbero says that Orco sent someone after him. Barbero says that, from what Ganzo found out, he's a big man, a regular Goliath. Angelo looks around the small shop, holding an apple. Barbero explains that Goliath is a giant from the Old Testament. Nine feet, six inches tall. Angelo suddenly notices slices pineapples and rushes over, piling a bundle of them into his sack. Barbero scolds him for not reading his bible. He says he hasn't exactly had time to go to church, but says that if he sees a big guy, he'll be careful. Nero tips the lady behind the counter and she leads him behind the counter through the door. Just before he's about to hang up, Barbero says that they've got trouble on the horizon with Fango and Orco. Nero agrees and says that you can't keep a collar on that mad dog, no matter who the master is.
Nero arrives at a secret speakeasy. Smiling, he makes his way to the counter. He asks the bartender to give him his hardest stuff. He pours it and hands it over to Nero. Nero downs it, but is underwhelmed. Nevertheless, he tells him to keep it coming. The bartender looks at him, waiting, so Nero pulls out his wallet. He finds his wallet empty, so he looks around, noticing a barrel.
Mad Mack's dog begins barking at Nick as he pats down Mad Mack. He turns around and tells him to shut his dog to shut up. Mad Mack whistles. Nick kicks the air by the dog, trying to scare him. The dog starts growling, so Nick continues patting him down. Nick finds his wallet, so he takes the money out and says that it's the fine for barking at law enforcement. He drops the wallet on the ground. He walks over to the barrels on his wagon, asking if he has anything good. As he opens the first one, he finds the body of the man Mack killed earlier. Shocked, he looks behind him to find Mack infuriated behind him. Mack lifts him up from behind and begins squishing him. He asks if Nick had seen anyone new in town, like two young men traveling together. Nick chokes out that he had at the drug store. He tells him to let him go. He tells him again to let him go before he snaps Nicks back and he dies.
Angelo exits the grocery store and rubs an apple on his shirt before taking a bite. Across the road, Angelo notices juggling balls then a knife. He walks in holding the groceries.
At the bar, Nero has uses the barrel to arm wrestle for money. The other man in the bar cheer them on. Nero manages to win, and some men congratulate him, saying he one again. One of the men pass him money and another passes a shot. Nero downs it, saying it's awful. Suddenly, Mad Mack barges in. Drunk, Nero calls him "Big Mexico" and says that they should have a round and tells everyone to place their bets. Mad Mack pulls out his picture and compares it to Nero. Mad Mack says that it stinks. As soon as the round starts, Mad Mack slams Nero's fist down with enough strength to break the barrel. Then, he punches Nero in the side of the face. After this, he continuously beats Nero as the crowd watches, astounded. Just as he's about to punch again, he hears his dog yelp. Nero uses this distraction as an opportunity to kick him in the groin and Mad Mack falls to the ground. Angelo enters and says that it sounds lively in there. says that it sounds lively. Nero blows blood out of his nose and says that the fun's just getting started, but Angelo says that they should go, as they're not in any position to be playing around in public. Nero throws some money on the barrel and apologizes for cutting the fun short. Before running out.
Big Mack enters the front of the drug store where he finds his dog trying to get surgical tape off his mouth. He removes it, then steps outside. He sniffs the air, saying that it stinks. Suddenly, the car rams into Mad Mack, as his dog looks on in horror. People around him ask if he's okay and someone yells to call a doctor. Nero tells Angelo that his practice paid off, and to get them out of there. Angelo tries to start it, but the engine makes a noise. Big Mack suddenly stands and faces the front of the car. The two jump out as Mad Mack throws people around him as the two run down the street.
That night, the two walk down a dirt road. Nero says that they're so far out in the sticks, they can't even hitchhike. Seeing a barn in the distance, Angelo suggests they stay there. Nero dishearteningly agrees. Angelo asks if he think's he'll come,and Nero says probably because the dog was a skilled scent hound.
On the same path, Mad Mack follows his dog on his wagon. He spots the barn and he pulls out his machetes.
In the barn, Nero puts a pitchfork on the door as a make-shift lock. He finds a can of Royal sliced pineapple and asks what it is. Angelo says that it's canned goods. Annoyed, Nero says that he can see that and asks if he's making a pineapple cake or something. Angelo cuts open a tube with the knife that he seen in the store window earlier. Nero tells him to stop messing around and tells him to oil the guns. Angelo says that he forgot them in the car. Annoyed, Nero says that if he was going to forget something, it should have been the pineapple. Nero turns around towards the door and pulls his gun out of his coat. He says quietly that he's hungry.
Outside, Mad Mack stands before the door as his dog growls. Angelo and Nero hear this and hide, with Nero cocking his gun. Angelo holds the tube he was cutting earlier. They both stare at the door, waiting, but Mad Mack jumps from the window, wielding his machetes. He charges first at Angelo, and manages to cut some of his hair as he swipes at him. He then kicks him and Angelo flies towards the wall. As Mad Mack starts walking towards him, Nero shoots at him from the front of the barn. Though he hits him initially, it just seems to go through his poncho. As he continues to fire, he misses every time until he runs out of bullets. Mad Mack charges at him as he picks up the pitchfork from the door. Mad Mack laughs when Nero tells him to come at him, and chops the sharp end off the pitchfork before kicking him. Nero falls to the ground. Mad Mack laughs but Angelo throws a can of pineapple at him, using the tube as a sling and manages to hit him. Mad Mack charges towards him, and cuts one of the cans in half. As he gets closer, Angelo throws his knife at him, but it flies past him and into the wall. Just as he reaches Angelo and is about to slash him, Nero takes the knife from the wall and tosses it at him, hitting him deep in his back. Angelo smiles slyly after looking at his body. Smiling, Nero says that he guesses Angelo owes him now, but Angelo, no longer smiling, asks him what for. Nero says that he saved him as they exit the barn. The dog enters as they leave. Angelo says that he should be thanking him, actually. Suddenly, a farmer cocks his gun and points it at them, ordering them to stop. Nero calmly asks him to hold on, but he again shouts to stop. Nero begins to explain but Angelo quickly pushes him to the ground just before Mad Mack swipes down his knife. The farmer shoots Mad Mack in the forehead, in the groin area, the shoulder, and a fourth time, calling him a monster. Mad Mack coughs up blood before collapsing. His dog walks forward wining. The pair stand up and the three men look at his body. The farmer sighs and asks what he was. Nero calls him "Gorillath," confusing the man. Nero tells him he should read his Bible. The dog walks over to his master and hands him a wallet. He tells him to take care of the dog because he'll make a good partner.
The pair take Mad Mack's wagon. Angelo driving and Nero in the front. With a can of open pineapple in his hand, he says that it's a weird thing to have for breakfast. Angelo says that they have no money. Nero slides a ring into his mouth and chews it before gulping it down. Surprised, he says that it's sweet.
Tomorrow, and Tomorrow
Nero lies in the back of the buggy, coughing. There are pineapple cans scattered around him. Angelo asks how he is, and Nero says he's fine but he'll be better after some sleep. Angelo's stomach grumbles, so he turns to the paper bag behind him. He finds that Nero ate all the cans of their pineapple. Nero says that he just finished them off. Angelo is mad and says that he ate Angelo's share as well. Nero says that, since he left them for so long, he thought he didn't want them. He coughs and then apologizes. Angelo turns back ahead of him, not looking mad.
Nero remembers when they buried their mother. It was raining and his father and siblings both attended. Frate cried loudly under Fio's umbrella. Testa and Ganzo also attended.
Later on, Frate got sick and coughs in bed with pink cheeks. Fio and Nero watch over him. Ganzo comes in and says that he's bringing up the special eggnog. He brings the hot cup over to Frare and says that, with that, he'll be better.
Frate blows on it before taking a sip. He smiles and says that it's good. Nero asks if he can have some too. Smiling, he says that he can if he gets a cold. Nero looks at him disappointed.
In present time, Nero lies in bed with pink cheeks. Angelo comes in with a bowl and picks up the knife lying beside Nero. In his sleep, Nero says "It's good... eggnog..." Angelo looks at him for a moment before waking him. He holds the bowl and knife, and asks him to get up for a bit. He does and Angelo asks for his hand. He does and asks what he's doing. Angelo says "bloodletting." He pricks Nero's finger and says that, if you get rid of the bad blood, the fever will go down. A small amount of blood trickles into the bowl. Nero asks if it really works. Angelo says he doesn't know. As he's about to do another finger, Nero asks what he's doing. Angelo smiles and says he's doing all his fingers and toes.
Nero pulls his hand back and rolls over on the bed, making the bowl fall on the floor. Angelo looks disappointed and Nero says that he'll be fine after he sleeps. Angelo says that an ice pack might help, but Nero becomes angry and says to leave him alone. Angelo looks unimpressed and Nero says he doesn't need him fussing over him before coughing again.
At the Vanetti Mansion, Barbero introduces the Lodge to Corteo. Barbero says that they call it the Lodge and says that it used to me his, and now they use it as a distillery. He tosses a stack of papers onto the table between them to show the equipment they use there. Barbero says that they want to manufacture his Lawless Heaven there. Before he can continue, the phone rings and Barbero goes to answer it.
Barbero tells someone on the phone that he'll send them money right away and that he'll leave the rest to him. Barbero calls to Corteo and says it's for him.
Corteo explains that it's best not to use something too cheap. He says that if Nero is getting better, it wouldn't be good if he deteriorates again. Barbero listens and Corteo says goodbye.
At a bar, Angelo asks for a bottle of his cheapest booze. The man says that it's a bit dangerous. Angelo says that it's fine and smiles.
Angelo mixes egg, milk, and flour in a pot on a stove. He tests it with a spoon and then smiles. He pours it into a cup and then adds the alcohol. Angelo says that it's ready and Nero wakes up. Annoyed, Nero flips over and says he doesn't need anything. Angelo says that it's eggnog and it's good. Nero looks at him through the side of his eye. Nero sits up and apologizes, but Angelo smiles and says it's fine as he hands the cup to him. Nero blows on it a bit, but Angelo says not to worry because the alcohol cooled it down. Angelo smiles as Nero takes a drink, but Nero suddenly spits it out and coughs, surprising Angelo.
Nero's eyes are watering and says that it's really sweet. He smiles before looking up and says that he appreciates it anyway. Angelo looks at him, still surprised. In the kitchen, Angelo takes a ladle and tries another sip. He says to himself that it's good while looking puzzled.
At "Garage Work," Angelo waits outside while Nero pays for a car. Nero runs out and tells him to get in first. Angelo looks at the bottle as Nero runs into a General Shop. Angelo smile while looking at the bottle and then throws the bottle and it shatters offscreen.
The two drive home with Nero in the driver's seat. Nero pulls something out of his pocket and puts it in Angelo's lap. Angelo looks over to see Nero smiling at him. Angelo looks down to a can of Royal Palm: Sliced Hawaiian Pineapple. They continue driving down the dirt path and out of view.
Angelo and Nero sit together in a diner. Nero says that he's sick of eating that stuff as he puts his fork down. With his eyes closed, Angelo continues eating without saying anything. Nero says that he doesn't know how he could eat it without complaining. Angelo says that he'll get hungry later. Nero lights up a cigarette and leans back in his seat. Suddenly, the clock strikes nine pm.
On the phone with Barbero, Nero is taken back when he says that they're making a truce with the Orcos and he asks why they would. Barbero says that Orco finally made a move to snuff out Fango, but failed like they did. Nero says that they can't afford to fight on both fronts, either, so they want a truce. Barbero says that's mostly true. He says that Fango got twenty or so guys together and holed up on the Island and, apparently, he's connected with the owner, Granchio. Nero says that he has his bases covered. He says that he guesses they can come home, then. Barbero looks behind him before saying no. Nero asks why, if they're making peace with the Orcos, the Galassias shouldn't have a problem. Barbero agrees, and says that Frate persuaded Ronald of that. He asks if they could meet up before he gets into town. Nero says that he's in Portline now, and suggests they meet up at the Lodge in two days. Barbero agrees before hanging up.
Angelo and Nero drive along the road with Angelo in the passenger seat. Smiling with a cigarette in his mouth, Nero takes a long exhale and asks if he wants to join the family when they get back and then passes him his cigarette. Angelo is shocked briefly, but then closes his mouth and takes the cigarette. Nero steps on the gas and they speed along.
Almost in town, Angelo stands at the side of the car as Nero pees on the train tracks. Angelo asks if they're continuing into the city. Nero says no, and, as they drive along another road, he says that it's going to get bumpy. Angelo asks where there going, and Nero says he'll see soon enough. They two exit the car and Nero walks them towards a tunnel partly hidden under trees and bush.
Inside the tunnel, Nero knocks on the door. Someone asks who's there, and Nero answers. They enter to find a brewery, with men working all around. Angelo asks where they are, and Nero answers that it's a moonshine brewery he had specially made. He calls it "The Lodge." As they walk through, Angelo says that it's a pretty big operation. Nero agrees, and says that he makes some pretty good money. Barbero agrees, saying with his alcohol in particular, right now as he motions to Corteo. As Angelo sees him, Corteo smiles back at him. Angelo is shocked to see him and asks what he's doing there. Corteo answers that they asked for his help. Barbero walks past Corteo, friendily putting his hand on his shoulder before embracing Nero, welcoming him back. Nero hugs him back, thanking him.
Berbero hands a bottle with the label "Lawless Heaven" on it to Angelo. He says that it's fetching a better price than their imports from Canada right now. He says that Corteo's recipe is complicated, so they haven't distributed much yet. Barbero asks about them, saying that he heard they did a bit of monster slaying. Nero pats Angelo on the back, and says that he handled things pretty well, other than driving. Angelo says that he saved Nero's life multiple times. Nero says that he can run his mouth after he pays him back for crashing the car as he shoves him slightly, causing Angelo to smile. Corteo seems panicked by this.
Now alone, Angelo pours himself a shot. He downs it and, smiling, says that his booze is really the best. Quietly, Corteo asks when he will kill Nero. Angelo asks what he means. Corteo says that Nero's one of his revenge targets. Angelo asks why he asks, when he thought his revenge was stupid before. Angelo explains that if he wants to get close to Don Vanetti, he needs to earn his trust. He'll figure it out after that. Corteo pulls out a cigarette and sticks it in his mouth. He tries to find a lighter, but Angelo tosses his at him. Angelo asks that he started smoking. Corteo lights it and exhales, but, before he can answer, Nero suddenly yells at Angelo, telling him to come on since he wants to join the family. He says that he'll introduce him to Don Vanetti. Angelo stands up and taps Corteo's arm, he hands him his lighter back. As he takes it, he says that it might not be long before he kills him, either.
At the door, Barbero warns Nero not to take his eyes off Ronald once they get back at the mansion. Smiling, Nero says he knows and that Barbero worries too much as he and Angelo walk out the door. Corteo stares at them as well with a blank expression on his face.
Outside the Vanetti Mansion, Tigre stands out front reading a news paper. Del Toro and Frate drive up, and Frate rolls down his window in the back seat. Tigre jogs over and Frate greets him. He asks if his brother's in yet, smiling. Tigre says not yet. He asks Frate if he's sure he can trust Orco. Frate smiles even more and says that it took a lot of effort, but they worked out a truce. Frate turns beside him and grabs a bottle. He says that it's a little early, but suggests he comes in for a drink to celebrate his brother's return. Tigre spits on the ground and asks if it's any good as the front gate opens. Frate says that it's better than the stuff Nero's making on the sly before Del Toro drives in.
Tigre walks in the gate where two men guard holding machine guns, one being Volpe smoking a cigarette.
At Ottimo Orco, a plate smashes on the ground as Don Orco complains about the food. He threatens the chef as he leaves, and Corvo holds the door open for him. Spying through binoculars, Angelo asks if he's Orco. Don Orco enters the car with five men surrounding him with guns. Nero says that he is, and that he's pretty well-guarded for a guy they have a truce with. Angelo sighs as he looks at the car.
That night, they pull up to the gate and honk. As they enter, one of the men welcome him. Nero asks where Tigre is, and Volpe answers that he's having a drink with Frate. Nero says that he's hopeless as he pulls forward with Angelo in the passenger seat. Nero turns off his headlights as he gets closer the mansion. Angelo asks what's wrong, and Nero says that they aren't the usual guards. As the car approaches the front door, Tigre comes out calmly and waves at him. Suddenly, Nero looks angry and slams on the gas. Tigre runs towards the car as a man runs out behind him, telling them to wait and begins blowing a whistle. Nero then quickly slams on the brakes and tells Angelo to open his door. He does as a bunch of men run outside with guns. One of the men manage to shoot Tigre in the shoulder and he falls to the ground. In the window, Frate and Ronald can be seen looking out the window at the scene while holding wine glasses. They manage to get Tigre in the car as they continue shooting at the car. Angelo asks what's going on and Nero replies that he has no clue. At the gate, Volpe shoots the other guard to death before he can stop Nero and then opens the gate for them. He hops on the side of the car as they drive away.
Volpe tells Tigre to keep pressure on his shoulder as they drive away and says that he's bleeding hard. He says they need to get him to a doctor. Nero says that it isn't possible, because they'll trace them. Angelo asks who he is, and Nero says that he's Volpe, and that he had him watching Ronald. Volpe apologizes, and says that it was actually Frate who made the first move. Nero says that he probably had a hunch they were onto them. Angelo asks what tipped him off, and Nero says that Tigre raised his right hand and that was the sign. He says, because of that, he didn't end up filled with holes and thanks him.
In Vince's office, Frate downs a glass of booze with dark bags under his eyes. Ganzo demands to know what's going on and tells Frate to explain. Frate says that Orco demanded Nero's life as one of the conditions of the truce. He says that it was Nero who tried to kill Fango in the first place, so it's only natural. Vince stands looking out the window and Del Toro stands silently beside his desk. Ganzo ask what he means by "only natural," and Frate says that he's getting his just desserts. Not looking at him, Vince asks his son why he didn't tell him. Looking ashamed, Frate says that he knew he wouldn't kill him. Vince turns and asks if he's willing to kill his own brother. Frate stands and says that if he doesn't, the Galassias won't stand for it. Ganzo scoffs and asks if he's sure about that. Frate says that they've always done what they say and always will. In exchange, they protect them. Frate asks his father if he doesn't understand that. Vince says that they aren't the Galassias' puppets.
Suddenly, there's a loud knock on the door. Gonzo tells them to keep it down, but Ronald enters the room. Ronald asks if insulting each other is a sign of a close-knit family. Frate looks unhappy to see him. Ronald says that a father and son shouldn't fight before smiling smugly.
Nero kicks a can as Barbero looks at him concerned. Tigre lays on the floor under a coat, panting. Volpe sits beside him and Angelo sits on a step. A car pulls up and Barbero asks if he's okay. Barbero asks about the bullet and Nero says that it looks like it passed through. Barbero says to change the bandage as he tosses a bag at Volpe. Nero asks if his father knew about what was going to happen that day. Adjusting his glasses, Barbero says that he doesn't think so. He says that the monster that attacked him was probably sent by Ronald and Frate. Listening, Angelo grins as he says that the Orcos are ahead of them and the Vanettis behind. He asks if it's time for them to head back on their trip. Barbero says no, as all the roads out of town are blocked off. Corteo says that it looks like they're stopping all the boats at the bridges too. Barbero says that it's only a matter of time before they find them there. He and Nero look at Tigre, who is sweating and panting on the floor.
Ronald says that Frate will run the Vanettis from now on. He says that if they don't like it, they're basically leaving the town to the Orcos. Enraged, Ganzo asks who he thinks he is. Ronald takes a drag from his cigar and slowly exhales. He says that either way is fine by him. Vince asks if that is the word from Don Galassia. Ronald asks who else it would be from. Frate smiles smugly. Ronald says that he has one other request for his "father"; he says that Nero needs to die.
Back at the warehouse, all six men sleep in the floor but Angelo. Corteo awakens and steps outside to find Angelo smoking. Corteo says that it's hard to sleep and that he misses his bed. He tells Angelo that they should get out of there. Angelo asks why. Corteo says that it had nothing to do with them from the start. He says that Nero will be killed without them doing anything. Angelo calmly says that if they do, he won't be able to get close to Vince. Corteo, upset, says that if they say they'll die and asks if his life is less important to him than revenge. Angelo exhales his cigarette and says that he has it backwards; if he abandons his revenge, he loses his reason for living. A sad understand washes over Corteo's face as Angelo flicks his cigarette into the water.
The group stands over Tigre and Nero asks how he is. Volpe says that he's out cold. Nero apologizes to Tigre and says that he can't take him to a doctor now. Barbero says that he might last another day, at best. Angelo says that there's a way to save him. The four men turn to look at him and Nero asks how. Angelo walks outside and motions to The Island. Nero is confused, as does Barbero appear to be, and Angelo says that there are doctors there, and they're hostile to the Vanettis, who are chasing them. Nero is angered by this and grabs Angelo's collar. He tells him not to be ridiculous; Fango killed a bunch of their guys. He tightens his grip as he says Vanno as well. Now furious, Nero says that there's no way he's working with him. The button falls of Angelo's shirt before Barbero stops him and Nero tosses him back. Angelo gasps for air as he rubs his throat. Barbero says that Fango has no reason to take them in anyway. Barbero says he feels for Tigre, but their only hope is to find an opening and get to The Lodge.
Back inside, they all sit around the room, not talking. Angelo tries to take a sip of some booze, but it's empty. He asks Corteo where more is. Corteo says in the car. As Angelo walks by, he stares at Corteo out the side of his eye. Corteo closes his book and follows him to the car.
Angelo grabs the booze from the car and they both walk down towards the water. Angelo tells him to come along. Corteo is surprised and Angelo says that he's going to escape from there. Corteo smiles at this, but then asks how. Angelo puts the booze on the boat and Angelo says "Let's cross it... The river of lamentation into the underworld." Corteo looks uncomfortable, but, suddenly, Volpe calls out to them and asks what they're doing. Angelo pushes off and tells Corteo to hurry. He jumps on the boat and Volpe asks where they're going and demands that they come back. He pulls his gun out and aims it at them, but doesn't pull the trigger. Nero walks behind him and watches them go silently.
As the two dock at the island, a man with a gun approaches and asks who they are. Angelo says that they'd like to sell some alcohol. The man orders that they leave, and they don't want their crummy booze there. Angelo raises his hands above his head and slowly rises. Angelo says that that's what Granchio said at first, too.
Inside, Lacrima sits at [where the bartender serves...] drinking sadly. When the door opens, she sees Angelo and Corteo enter. Granchio stands behind the counter, and says that they made a scene last time they were there and that they have some nerve, showing up again. Angelo puts a bottle down and Granchio asks if he's trying to sell his booze there again. Angelo says that it's just an apology for the fire and the rest is on the boat. Granchio says he'll accept it.
Angelo says that they want to see Fango. Granchio asks why, but Angelo says that's only for him to know. Granchio calmly starts to tell them to get lost, but Lacrima welcomes them in. Smiling, she leads them in. As they walk in, Corteo notices Cerotto by one of the barells. He asks why he's there. He says that he betrayed Scusa thanks to them. Now he can't show his face around town, so he's there working for nothing. As they had stopped to listen, Lacrima tells them to hurry up. Cerotto says that Fango's even crazier than he thought as they both walk along.
As the three enter Fango's office, he calls her a sow and says that she can't stop bringing in the young ones. He asks if she's thinking about a foursome now, smiling. Fango says that he doesn't know if he can hold out. She says that she just brought them there. She says that if he's up to it, it'll just be the three of them. She turns around to walk out, but quietly says that she'll see Angelo later as she rubs his ass. She says that is if he makes it out alive before squeezing it. Amused, Fango says that she's making him jealous.
After she leave, he remembers their faces. He says that he heard the Orcos and the Vanettis are chasing Nero all around. Angelo says that he wants Fango to hide them. They have a wounded man. Fango starts laughing, and says that it's funny. Angelo says that Fango has nothing to lose. Fango abruptly stops laughing and asks if that's so. He throws his face into his hands on his desks. Crying, he says that Nero and his gang too out Serpente. He says that he used to trip Fango's beard with his knife. Though Corteo looks terrified, Angelo stares at him with a blank expression as he raises his hand to his chin. Suddenly, Fango raises his gun at them and shouts that he'd never be able to forgive him as he points the gun at Angelo. Though neither men seem to feel scared, they both look at him with a blank expression. Fango smiles and sits back down. He says that they're right; he's not that type. He asks what they have to offer him.
At the abandoned building, Volpe laments that they betrayed them and says that they're going to sell them to Fango. Barbero says that if they were going to, they'd choose Orco or Vanetti. He starts to ask why, but Corteo suddenly enters and says that Angelo didn't betray them. Barbero asks where he is and Corteo says that he's Fango's hostage. Both of them are surprised and Corteo says he has a message from Avilio; "Bring Tigre and come to the Island. I'll negotiate with Fango." Corteo says that if they stay there, Tigre will die, as will they. So the island is the only place they can go. Barbero slides his glasses up and asks if he has any proof that it isn't a trap. Smiling, Corteo says that he'll be their hostage. Volpe gets close to his face and asks if he thinks they can trust him. Nero says that they can trust Avilio, but not Fango. Nero says that it's possible he'll betray and kill them all. Corteo says that it comes with conditions.
When Fango asks what they have to offer, Angelo says that he'll bring Don Orco to him, alive and he can do what he wants with him. Angelo asks if he wants to take over his family. Angelo says he can't do it himself and the twenty men he has there aren't enough. Angelo says that the men there don't seem to like him much, either. Fango smiles and begins to slowly clap. He says that it's excellent, though he gets under his skin. He asks what they'll do first. Angelo says he doesn't know, angering Fango. Smiling, Angelo says that it was Nero's idea.
Nero is shocked that he would says that and says that he has no idea what to do. Barbero says that it doesn't matter if he does, because now Fango thinks he does so he wont attack him. Nero walks up to Corteo and says that he said he didn't want to work with Fango. Nervous, Corteo says that Avilio said that Nero wasn't the sort of person to let a friend die. Looking at Tigre, Nero curses and rubs the back of his head.
Looking out at the Island, Nero says that "There's something wrong about you crossing the river of lamentation before me." Across, Angelo looks out at the window, waiting for them to appear.
At The Island, Tigre pants with his eyes closed, laying onto of some boards. At the counter, Nero, and Barbero sit while Corteo and Volpe stand. Two men have their guns pointed at them. Nero taps nervously on the counter and he reaches into his coat pocket for a smoke, so one man cocks his gun at him. Smiling, Nero asks if he can at least have a cigarette. The man doesn't react, so Nero says that he looks good at sucking on stuff. The man doesn't respond but turns along with everyone else as Angelo walks down the hall. Barbero says that it was fast as Fango follows Angelo out. Fango says that he heard they'd kill Orco for him. Nero smiles and shouts back that he'd be happy to. Fango and Angelo stand before the counter as well as Fango says that that'll save him some time. He then asks Nero how it's happening. No one says anything for a moment, and Fango finishes that Angelo had told him that Nero had a plan. Nero says that that isn't so at all and says that he's so hungry, he can't think. He tells Nero to get some food and booze because he hadn't had a proper meal in ages.
Smiling, Nero sits down facing Nero in the bench beside him. Fango says that he doesn't seem to grasp the position he's in. He puts his boot down in front of Nero and tells him to lick it. He says to think of it as an appetizer; they're made from fine Italian cows. The four men look at Nero nervously as he slowly inches towards his boot. Suddenly, Nero grabs a fork as tries to stab his foot, but Fango moves away quick enough and isn't hurt. Smiling, Nero asks what's wrong, asking if he doesn't get to eat it then. Fango starts laughing crazily and yells for someone to get Nero some food.
At Ottimo Orco, Orco, Frate, and Ronald sit together at a table. Orco says that he heard Nero got away. Frate looks down, embarrassed, and says that they still intend to find and kill him. Ronald says that he hopes to continue their good relationship, though Nero is standing in the way of that. they asks if he's heard anything about him. Orco says that he heard he's doing well for himself lately. Smiling, Ronald asks what he means. Orco says that he's rolling in dough off Lawless Heaven. Still looking uncomfortable, Frate says that he started making it without asking. Orco says that he'd like a piece of the action. Ronald says that if they get Nero, they'll have both the recipe and the brewery. Still smiling, Ronald rises from his seat and tells him that, if he finds anything out, to get in touch. He adds that that's a requests from the Galassias, too, before turning and walking away. Frate is left scrambling and he quickly jumps up and follows him without a word.
Orco watches the two walk out and curses about Ronald, and how he throws Galassia's weight around. His men listen from an adjacent table, including Corvo. Orco says that he guesses Nero's finished as he stuffs meat into his face. He says that they have to do something about Fango. After throwing the bones on the plate, he says that with so much on his mind, he can barely eat. He downs his glass of wine and asks a waiter where his lasagna is.
Angelo, Corteo, Barbero, and Nero sit in their room. They discuss their sleep and Barbero says that they're in no position to complain. Volpe suddenly interrupts them, saying that Tigre will pull through. Angelo says that if they don't kill Orco, they're done for. Barbero asks if he doesn't have have a plan, but Angelo cuts him off and finishes his sentence. He says that he has a perfect one. He says that the fewer people who know about it, the better. Angelo tells Volpe to catch a chicken for him.
Angelo and Nero pull up to Ottimo Orco in suits. Smiling, Nero says they should eat. Three armed men stand at the front and they command them to halt as they come to the door. One man recognizes Nero and asks what he wants. Nero says that he came all the way there for a good meal, and some business to discuss. He tells them to let Don Orco know. The men look at each other and one men goes back. One man says that they'll need to do a pat-down, so the too raise their arms. Smiling, Nero asks what he recommends there. The man says lasagna. Nero asks if it's "just like mom used to make." The man comes back to open the door and lets them both in.
Inside, the two are greeted by two armed men, and Orco surrounded by his men, including Corvo. Smiling, Orco says that he didn't think Nero would have the guts to show his face around him. He asks if he knows where he is. Smiling, Nero says "Ottimo Orco" and says that it's the best restaurant in Lawless.
Angelo and Nero at a table, eating. Orco tells Nero that Frate's looking for him and asks where he's staying. Nero slowly says that he messed up. Orco asks him how so. Wiping his mouth, Nero smiles and throws his arms up, saying that it's the best lasagna he's ever had. He says that he should have joined the Orco family instead. Orco suddenly bursts out laughing. Orco says that he's a funny guy and turns to his men and asks them. They begin snickering nervously, before he suddenly slams his fist down and they stop. He says that he has many reasons to kill him and not a single one to let him live. Rubbing the back if his head, Nero says that since he came all the way there, he could hear him out. Orco cuts him off and asks what he could possibly say and that it'd better not be a plea for his life. Nero shrugs and Orco continues that he's known Vincent for 40 years. Angelo is shown to be listening intently. He continues, now shouting, that they had a good relationship, but he ruined that by stealing all of their booze. Smiling calmly, Nero says that he'd done the same, but that's just the nature of the business. Orco smiles and says that "The Last Supper is over." He tells him to have some of the finest whisky as he pours it. He says that he wants to send him to his grave with no regrets. All of his men begin pointing their guns at Nero.
Smiling, Nero says that he'd happy to try it, then. He takes a small sip and says that it's bootleg. Finely aged, from Windsor. Orco says that he has a good nose and says that it's not every day you get to drink one that's aged 30 years. He asks if he likes it. Nero says that he does, and says that it's got a refined flavor. He says that even so, it's not the flavor of the modern day as he pours it onto the table. He takes a flask out of his coat and pours it into his glass. He drinks it happily and then pours a glass for Orco. He tells him to try it, noting it;s brand new from just a month ago. Angelo, speaking for the first time, corrects him that it's actually three weeks. Orco reaches out and takes it his hand. Corvo shouts at him, but Orco raises his hand and he takes a sip. He is surprised how much he likes it and downs the rest. Orco says that it's good and asks if it's Lawless Heaven. Nero says that, with it, he'd never again have to pay off cops to smuggle stuff over the border. Orco asks what he wants in exchange. Corvo yells that he can't listen to him, but Orco tells him to shut up. Nero says to make them a place to lie low and he'll give him all of it.
At the Lodge, Orco asks if they're going to dig up some coal, since it's a coal mine. Nero says that their destination is deep inside. Orco tells Corvo to go with him and have a look inside. Nero asks if he has a lighter, but he tells him to shut up as he pushes his gun into Nero's back and they walk towards the entrance. Once the other two have left, Orco asks Angelo if he's Avilio; the one who tried killing Fango. Smiling, Orco continues that he heard Fango went running off in his underwear. Angelo says that he scrambled off like a stray cat. Orco says that he wished he'd killed him. Angelo asks if he's the one who sent the letter. Orco asks what he means. Angelo says to never mind and asks why not use him since Nero's finished. Orco says that he can't trust him.
Angelo pauses and says that he's real name is Angelo Lagusa and his father's name was Testa Lagusa. Orco thinks for a moment before remembering. Angelo continues that Vincent Vanetti killed his father. The two are interupted and they then enter the lodge.
Angelo walks in with his arms tied and with a man pointing a gun on him. Orco walks behind him. Nero says that, between the Lodge and their recipe, Lawless would be his. Orco asks what the recipe is, and Nero says that if he said, he wouldn't need him any more. Nero walks towards some bottles and Corvo orders him to stop. Nero says that they could take the restraints off now. He says that they should toast to their new partnership. Corvo orders him to stop, but Nero continues forward. As he picks a bottle up, Corvo shoots it out of his hand. Annoyed, Nero tells him to quit jumping at shadows. Nero grabs the next bottle and begins drinking. He pours another glass and says that it has some orange bitters added. Orco walks forward and takes the glass. Orco notices something and begins walking towards the back. Nero encourages him to drink. Corvo runs up beside him and the two nod at each other.
Corvo shoots a hole in one of the barrels. Nero says that they're damaging valuable merchandise. He shoots two more and Nero says that he can do what he wants. He shoots more before shooting a barrel with no booze in it. Nero says that it was empty. Suddenly, Volpe, who was shot in the shoulder, pops out of the barrel and begins shooting. He manages to kill a man before Corvo returns shots. Angelo manages to take out the man holding him. Orco curses Nero. Nero says that it's hard to move with his hands bound.
As Orco's men shoot at him, Volpe manages to escape. As Nero comes out from his hiding place, he finds Angelo aiming at him. Angelo says that he's been waiting for that moment before shooting him in the chest. Nero collapses on the ground. Corvo and Orco walk over to Nero and look at him. Corvo aims his gun at Angelo and tells him to hand over his gun. Angelo hands it over to Orco. Corvo says that they should kill Angelo as well because he's completely untrustworthy. Orco punches him in the face and asks what he would know. Smiling, he clasps Angelo's shoulders and says that he avenged his father and says he should be admired. Angelo doesn't react to this and Orco yells to untie him. A man runs in from the back and says that there was an exit at the back and got away. Orco tells him not to come back until they've got him. Orco tells Angelo that they're useless as Angelo rubs his writs. Angelo suggests they have a toast. Orco smiles and says that it's a great idea. Angelo says pours Orco and Corvo a glass. Orco says that they'll finish Fango and Vanetti off while they're at it. They toast to family. While Orco and Corvo down it, Angelo just holds the drink at his lips. Orco says that it's delicious. Corvo asks if they can still get the recipe even though they killed Nero. Angelo says that they can, since it's made by a friend of his. Orco picks up a bottle and says that they'll never have to kowtow to the Galassias again.
Suddenly, Orco seems dizzy and says that he feels really drunk. He turns to Corvo to see him acting the same way. The two fall to the ground and Orco asks what's going on. He turns to see Nero smiling, standing above him. He realizes that he's been tricked before falling unconscious.
Orco awakens to find himself at the Island. He is gagged and his hands are tied. Nero, Fango, and Angelo stand before him at his desk. Fango welcomes him back to the waking world. Orco is mad and says that Avilio made up the whole story. Orco asks what Fango wants. He says that he wants everything that he has. Orco looks infuriated by this.
Angelo and Corteo stand outside, watching the sun set. Angelo tells Corteo that three men came into the house that day. Corteo looks down and says that Nero said that there were four. He wonders who the fourth could be. Angelo says that he thought it was Orco who sent the letter. He's no friend of Vanetti's. He says that he was wrong and he thinks this "friend of his father's" was the fourth man. Corteo asks if that means he wants to help him with his revenge out of a sense of remorse. Angelo agrees and is about to suggest something else, but the door opens so Angelo puts his letter away and Corteo scurries away.
Nero walks forward and says that the chicken helped them out back there and they have it cooked up now. Smiling, Nero says that he almost believed it himself. He mimics his revenge speech, making a gun with his hand. Smiling, Angelo says that he really put his heart into it. Holding a balloon in his hand, Nero tosses it in the air and says that he played dead pretty good as well. Smiling, Angelo agrees and teases that he's a real ham actor. Nero jokingly tells him to shut up. As the sun goes down, Nero says that it's about time.
Fango, dressed in a chief's outfit, has the Orco men, including Corvo, gathered at a long table. He says that he's honored to have all the executives who've supported the family over the years all there in one room. They all clap as Fango bows. He says that starting today, the Orco family becomes the Fango family. Smiling, he asks if anyone has a problem with that. They all look around uncomfortably. He says that the restaurant will also become "Ottimo Fango," though he wants to keep the dishes Don Orco cultivated just the same. The men seem pleased and all clap. Suddenly, Fango sharply leans into Corvo and asks what dish Orco was most obsessed with perfecting. Corvo nervously says lasagna. Fango says that lasagna was Ottimo Orco's most famous dish. He says that Ottimo Fango will keep it going strong. Fango snaps his fingers as her turns to the door. Two waiters open it. Lacrima enters with food fallowed by a disgusted Cerotto carrying lasagna. Each man is served his own plate.
Fango watches Corvo intently and asks what's wrong. He asks if he thinks it's poisoned or something. Corvo nervously says no as he cuts a piece and brings it to his mouth. He stops before eating it and looks at Fango. Smiling, Fango says that he should savor it. He quickly stuffs it into his mouth as the other men watch. He takes a glug of wine and then says that it's actually delicious. The other men smile, relieved.
Smiling, Fango claps and tells them to eat up. They all do and marvel that it really is delicious. Smiling, Corvo says that he wishes Don Orco could have some too before laughing. Fango smiles and says that it isn't possible. Corvo asks why and Fango looks away and says that they're eating what's left. One of the men says that it's too bad, because he could have eaten a lot more. Fango smiles and says that there's plenty more to go around.
While chewing, Corvo finds something and begins throwing up. Another man finds something hard and takes it out of his mouth. He pulls it out of his mouth and finds it to be a human tooth. With all the men throwing up, Fango begins laughing crazily and asks if it was delicious.
Nero, Barbero, Volpe, and Tigre sit at the table. Corteo and Angelo sit beside each other on the step. Tigre takes a bite of lasagna and Nero asks how he can eat such greasy stuff already. Smiling with a bandage over his arm, Volpe tells him not to force it. With a pained expression, Tigre stays he's not. Volpe says that it looks like they made it through. Barbero says that it's actually just going to get harder from there. Nero is annoyed and tells him that he's ruining the meal and to just eat his chicken. Angelo says that Fango has enemies, and now they're their enemies as well. Nero looks unhappy at this and asks what he means. The two look at each other before Angelo looks away and says that they should just eat or the lasagna will get cold as he puts a small piece in his mouth.
In the next scene, Fango is demonstrating how to properly squeeze a lemon over a pizza at Ommomi Fango. He is among Avilio Bruno, Nero Vanetti, Lacrima, and Cerotto. He says that he wants to show his thanks for helping him take out Orco. After Lacrima starts talking about the food, Fango suddenly pounds on the table, saying that they have to take out the Vanetti family. Fango starts to say that they're like a family now, but Nero interrupts, saying that they're more like roommates. Nero and Avilio head out to cause trouble for the Vanetti family. As they're walking away, Fango asks if they want any booze, but they refuse. Fango says back that it must be because make their own booze that's much better. Lacrima says that they should bring some next time.
