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."
Shoal of Time
At a small church in 1917, a small group of people stand outside chatting. Ganzo Alary asks Vincent Vanetti how Connie Vanetti is doing. Vince says that a doctor's seen to her and there hasn't been any change. Ganzo Alary tells him that if he carries on in the same way, his children will be bored to tears. Vince asks what he means, and Ganzo tells him to take them out once and a while. He says that just because their mother can't, doesn't mean the kids can't walk. Ganzo lights a cigarette and Vince says that that's the reason he brings them to mass. Ganzo says that if he insists on just making them do what he wants, it's going to backfire on him someday. Vince turns away from him and tells him that it's none of his business. Ganzo exhales smoke and seems to notice someone. He waves at the Lagusa family and Testa waves back. Angelo walks beside a stroller that his mother is pushing.
Vince asks and Ganzo tells him that Testa had his second child: Luce. As the family happily walks into the church, Vince says that he's had enough of Testa's stubbornness. Ganzo scolds him and tells him that there aren't many as loyal as him in the mafia. Vince says that his mafia family comes second to his real family. Ganzo says that that is true. He says that when Testa drove away the Galassia messenger a while back, it scared him. Vince says that Testa won't like it, but it's high time they made peace with the Galassias for the family.
Nero opens the drawer and finds a picture of a young Ganzo Alary, Vincent Vanetti, and Testa Lagusa. He takes money out of an envelope and puts it in his pocket. He notices the picture before saying that he can't stick around and tossing back in the drawer and closing it. As he's about to leave he hears his mother coughing and turns toward her door. The maid yells that she'll bring the medicine and water right away. Nero goes into her room and closes the door.
Around 1920, Angelo, Corteo, and the rest of the Lagusa family go on a picknick. Elena had woken a lot earlier than us and made everything. They drive to a man-made forest together. Luce protests, but Elena stays firm and brings him along. Though Testa was busy with work, he’d gone to the trouble of taking leave to go on this picnic.
At this age, Angelo could still carry Luce in his arms.
Luce had grown tired just earlier and demanded to be carried, but Elena told him to walk properly and refused now that he was a little older, saying being carried is for babies.
Angelo tells this to Corteo, telling him that, though he was relieved of his burden, he felt it was sad. Corteo laughs at him, saying he's jealous since he was an only child.
Angelo replies that he and Luce are like his brothers. At that, Corteo smiled happily, but didn't seem to believe him.
Luce suggests that they go on an adventure as he takes his hand and pulls him towards the forest. It was still too early to have lunch, and Luce was full of energy.
When they look at the flora, Luce picks up a poisonous mushroom, so Corteo warns him. Angelo takes out a handkerchief and wiped Luce’s hands. Luce finds a berry and asks if it's poisonous. As soon as Corteo says no, Luce quickly plops the sour berry into his mouth. Immediately, he made a face and spat it out.
Corteo looked on despairingly and Angelo fumbles around in his pockets. He holds out a sweet candy wrapped in thin paper. When he tore off the wrapping and popped the candy in his mouth, Luce’s frown transformed into a smile.
Elena calls the three boys, and they look at one another, grinning. When Luce gave the signal, the three started to run. Luce was giving it his all, but the two older boys were naturally running alongside him. Corteo was watching Luce’s feet. He was anxious, preparing to support him if he fell over.
Luce calls that he's first as he jumps into Elena’s arms with a broad smile. Testa waits next to them with his arms open. As Angelo slowed down, locks eyes with Corteo. Though Corteo tells him to go ahead, Angelo grabs his arm and pulls him into the hug as well.
Testa catches both of them and pats their heads cheerfully. When Angelo glances to his side, Corteo seemed to be on the verge of tears, so he quickly turned away so I wouldn’t see his face, and endured the patting until Elena called for them.
They laid the food out on the picnic rug. They pray to God before eating.
On a rainy day, Avilio Bruno walks home. By his door, a group of old women stand in a circle, talking. As he starts to walk up his stairs, his landlord tells him that she received a letter to his address, though it's to Angelo Lagusa. Though he was walking away as she said this, he runs back and snatches it out of her hand without saying anything. He then turns to go back to his apartment. After he closes the door, the landlord says that he's creepy and that she can't tell if he's alive or dead.
In his barren room, Angelo throws his wet clothes on the back of a chair and sits down on a chair. There are empty cans of pineapple in the room, one filled with cigarette butts. He pulls his wallet out of his pocket and takes some money out. Afterwards, he throws it under his bed in a pile of them. After this, he pulls the envelope and looks at it. He takes out a pocket knife and opens it. It contains a picture of his younger brother, Luce and a letter. Avilio says "Vanetti..." then smiles as lightning strikes.
At the Lagusa household, two bikes are parked outside. The same photo from the letter sits on the mantle. Luce is about to pinch the flame on a candle, but stops himself and asks Corteo if it really isn't hot. Corteo explains that it isn't, because it's actually the paraffin burning. Excited, Luce tells him to do it to show him. Corteo is taken back, and looks uncomfortable. He bends down and goes to touch it. Angelo watches, smiling, as he taps on the table. As he is about to touch it, though, he pulls his hand back, scared. He is about to again but hesitates. Angelo puts it out instead. Luce is overjoyed and asks if it really wasn't hot. Angelo says that it's true and Angelo agrees and shows him to look at his hand. Luce asks again, amazed and Angelo answers happily again. Corteo too looks amazed at his bravery.
In the kitchen, Elena Lagusa cuts something up. Corteo says that he better get going. Luce says that they should have cake together first. Corteo says maybe next time. As Corteo puts on his coat, Luce says that cake is tasty. Angelo says that they're nothing Corteo can do about it and Luce accepts this. Elena comes out of the kitchen with a container. She slips it into Corteo's bag and tells him to share it with his mother. She also takes out some money and says that it isn't much before slipping it into his bag. Corteo looks embarrassed and thanks her for everything. Elena helps him put his scarf on and asks how she's doing. Corteo hesitates but then smiles and says that she's been doing a lot better lately. Elena says she's happy to hear that. Across the room, Luce has begun playing with the candle as Angelo stares at them talking.
Outside, Luce says goodbye to Corteo and Corteo does the same. Luce then closes the door and Corteo and Angelo walk down the steps. Corteo asks Angelo if he'd ever put out a candle with his fingers before. Angelo shakes his head no. Snow begins to fall lightly and the two look up. Corteo is surprised, since it's already April.
In a parked car, someone ashes a cigarette as a car drives by them. On his bike, Corteo smiles and says goodbye and happy birthday to Angelo. They do their special wave to each other and Corteo rides away. Angelo hears his fathers car and, smiling, runs into the house. On the road, Testa Lagusa slows down to wave at Corteo and they wave at each other. After the two depart, the second car full of men starts up their car and goes in the same direction as Testa.
The two brothers hide together, smiling in a closet facing their front door. Luce tells his brother not to make a sound. Their father walks in and takes off his hat and Elena meets him there. He asks where they are and Elena says that he should call them and see. Smiling, he calls them and then begins looking as the two quietly laugh from their closet. Suddenly, Vincent Vanetti loudly knocks on the door and tells him to open up. Luce is disappointed but Angelo tells him not to worry, because he'll leave soon.
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.
Luce is about to cry out in the closet, but Angelo puts his hand over his mouth and tells him to be quiet because they'll leave soon. With tears in his eyes, Luce pulls his brother's hand from his mouth and watches on. Vince says that it's to protect the family. Testa is mad, after everything the don has done for Vince. Vince says that he's wrong and that he doesn't understand anything. Testa says that if he'd investigated, he'd know how much got back to the Galassias. Vince says that that's enough and tells him to give him the ledger. Testa tells him that it isn't there, it's at the bank. Vince gets mad and demands the ledger immediately. Dropping to her knees, Elena begs Vince to stop. He turns around and clocks her with his gun. Angelo and Luce both witness this, and though he grabs at his shirt, Angelo is unable to stop Luce from running from the closet.
Testa calls out to his wife. Luce runs out to his mother and they hug on the ground. Nero and Vanno are now pulling their guns on the two as well. Luce asks if she's okay. As the three men are now distracted, Testa pulls out his knife and stabs Vince through his right hand. He tries to stab him again, but merely slashes the left side of his face and the knife flies behind him and Vince falls to the ground. The two other men have their guns pointed at him and he looks at Vanno before three shots are fired.
In the closet, Angelo begins to cry and Elena tells Luce not to look. Elena tells Vince to spare her son. She swears that he won't tell anyone. Vince tells her to listen carefully, and says that he would never forget about them as long as he lives. Four shots are fired and blood is spattered on their mantle.
The three men stand over the pair's bodies and Vanno kneels as he crosses himself. Vince asks if they have anything to wipe up with. Vanno pulls a handkerchief and hands it to him. Nero starts to walk away and Vince says that they'll look upstairs and Nero downstairs. Nero walks into the room with the closet and cocks his gun, nervous. He opens the other door to it and is relieved to find nothing there. He enters a room to the side of a closet. Under the couch, Angelo covers his mouth as he hides, scared. Once he's in the other room, Angelo leaves the room. There his father lays in a pool of blood and his mother and brother lie dead in each other's arms. Angelo begins to tear-up but a door behind him closes and he begins running out the door.
Angelo leaps off his step. A man sits in front of the car and Nero runs after Angelo, but trips. Standing up, Nero aims at Angelo and fires. He doesn't hit and there are now two men outside with Nero, who seem to be looking at him.
Corteo sits at his table, reading when someone knocks on the door. He goes to the window to see Angelo. He runs to answer the door.
Crying, Corteo mixes a drink for him as he wipes his eyes. He brings it to his green sofa where Angelo sits, crying, wrapped up in a blanket. He offers the cocoa to him, but he doesn't look up from the blanket. His mother coughs from the other room. Angelo apologizes and says that he shouldn't have come there. Corteo says it's okay, because they wouldn't have chased him that far. Corteo tells a crying Angelo that he should get some rest. Corteo is about to blow out the candle lighting the room, but instead puts it out with his finger. Corteo says that, starting now, they're brothers. And they always will be.
The next morning, Angelo wakes up early and Corteo sleeps on the couch. Angelo looks at him sleeping and does his special wave at him. He returns to the house to find it burnt down and a group a people watching. Police investigate as his family is in body bags on the ground. He walks away down the path from his house.
Seven years later, in Lawless, Angelo gets off his train. He stops at Cerotto's Bar and Scusa and Cerotto can be seen at the counter. Scusa is disappointed when Cerotto shows that there is no more of Corteo's alcohol.
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.
Sitting down at the table, Corteo pours him a drink and tells him that it's good and that he should try it. Angelo says that he knows it's good as he lights a cigarette and begins to smoke it. Corteo says that he doesn't actually want to make moonshine, and just does it so he can go to school. He asks where Angelo had been for the last seven years. Angelo tells him to call him "Avilio Bruno." Corteo asks if it's okay for him to be back in town. Angelo takes a drink and then a drag of his cigarette without answering him. Looking uncomfortable, Corteo stands up and says that he must be tired and says that he can use the room they're in. Angelo asks about his mother. Corteo says that she died last summer. Angelo drops his cigarette on the ground and stomps it out with his foot. He says that he doesn't have anyone holding him down, then. He asks if he wants to make money with him because he wants to sell his alcohol to the family. He says that he doesn't want to get involved with the family. Angelo says please as the letter falls on the floor. He says that a raison d'être gives people power and that friendship is a more reliable tool than a knife. And that they're brothers, after all.
Overlooking the Island, Corteo says that that's where it will probably fetch the highest price. Ever since Prohibition, it's become a haven for dangerous types. But the speakeasies cater to a higher breed of clientele, and probably won't let them in. As they enter to Island, Angelo sees Tigre sitting in his car, reading a newspaper before spitting out his window. Corteo tells him that the church on the Island was converted into a bar.
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.
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.
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.
After Angelo confirms that Ganzo did send the letter, he comes inside the house. Angelo asks why he sent the letter to him. Ganzo says "Vincent kept worrying himself over Testa's son, the one who got away. He told me to track you down by any means necessary. Don't worry. You're dead, as far as he knows. To be honest, my hopes weren't high, but you did well. You made a few blunders along the way, but the way you killed Vanno had style." Angelo asks why he wants the Vanettis dead. Ganzo admits that he wanted the town of Lawless and everything that comes with it to himself. Ganzo asks if he killed Nero. Angelo says that he can kill Nero any time, but Vincent won't go down that easily. He says that to kill Vince, he needs Ganzo's help, since he needs Angelo as well. Angelo says that he wants Corteo and that once he's safe, he'd come back. Ganzo asks what happens if he refuses, and Angelo says that he entrusted the letter to a certain man, and that if he dies, it will be sent to Nero with his name on it. Ganzo gets up and opens a door. Corteo is sitting on the other side of it. Ganzo says that, for now, he should pick a familiar place to lay low.
Sitting in a meeting with Tigre, Ganzo, Barbero, and Nero, Barbero asks Avilio is the Galassias were receptive when he brought them the whisky. Avilio says they were, and that they called what happened with Ronald "water under the bridge." Nero says that he remembers Strega going to Ronald's funeral. Barbero explains that Strega is Don Galassia's nephew and Ronald's cousin. He asks Avilio if he met him in Chicago. Having just killed Corteo, we see that Avilio has bags under his eyes and looks very troubled. He doesn't reply until Nero calls out to him. Concerned, Nero slept at all. Barbero says that either way, it's best that they proceed with caution. Tigre says that there is no need to be so nervous and Ganzo replies that they are the big family that controls Chicago, so they shouldn't do anything to offend them. Hearing cars pull up, Ganzo announces that the Galassias have arrived.
Nero greets Don Galassia and says that it's an honor to meet him as they shake hands. Don Galassia says that he looks like his father as a young man. Looking nervous, Nero begins to bring up Ronald, but Don Galassia tells him not to worry as Nero took responsibility for that himself. He says they should instead both moe forward and build a relationship together as he puts his hand on his shoulder. Nero replies that he's grateful to hear him say that. Galassia introduces Strega, saying that he's a capable man and that he hopes that they can get along as the two young men shake hands.
The door suddenly opens as Del Toro opens it for Vince.Vince says that it's good to see him. Galassia greets him, calling him "Don Vanetti," but corrects himself as Nero is now the don. Vince confirms this, saying that he pushed all the hard work onto him so that he can take it easy. Galassia laughs, saying that he's envious. Nero walks over to some wine and asks who would like a drink. Galassia says that the wine Avilio brought will surely be popular in Chicago as well. As he finishes saying this, Vince begins coughing into a napkin. Galassia asks if he's alright, so Vince looks down to see blood in his napkin before excusing himself and closing him hand over it.
Outside, Don Galassia asks if Avilio is ready to come to Chicago. He says that he'd never be able to abandon that place. Strega says that Nero seems like an interesting guy, but calls him a "naive child [who] will trip sooner or later." Galassia tells Avilio to look ahead to the future because Lawless it too small a town for him.
Later, at a bar, Avilio and Ganzo sit together. Ganzo says that he doesn't look very well. Avilio doesn't reply to this and asks if there are any changes to the plan tomorrow. Ganzo says that there isn't and tells him that their room is the furthest down the hall on the second floor. He says that the door is bulletproof, so to kill Vincent, he'll have to get inside. It's the one door without an outside knob, so it's set up so that you can't get in from the outside without a key. Motioning to two other men sitting at another seat in the bar, he says that they'll finish off Del Toro, who'll be in front of the door. After that, Nero should open the door. Avilio says that he'll let Galassia escape first, then kill Vince and Nero. He takes out the letter and tells Ganzo to add his name to it since if his name is on it, it means that he's him enemy. As Ganzo begins to sign it, Avilio asks if he was there that day. Ganzo seems to be slightly taken back that he knew, but Avilio reassures him that he knows he didn't fire a shot. Ganzo tells Avilio that back then, Vincent was colluding with the Galassias. Testa found that out, so he killed him and his family. Ganzo puts the letter back in its envelop and says that Avilio should be the one to kill Vincent and Nero. Avilio looks away and tells him not to rush him, as everything is in its proper order. Ganzo looks over to an empty table beside them and asks what he's talking about. Avilio says that it's nothing as he stands up and puts the letter in his pocket. He leaves the bar. As soon as he does this, Strega walks in and asks Ganzo if he's sure Avilio can be counted on, and that nothing can happen to the Don. Smiling, Ganzo says that Avilio's capable. He says that once Vincent is dead, and Strega continues to say that in two days, Ganzo will be the one unifying the family, so not to mess it up. Ganzo agrees, saying that unlike Nero, he does as he' told. He asks if Don Galassia knows about it. Strega says that he doesn't have to know, as he's "gone soft, though and through."
Back at the mansion, Nero sits in his office drinking Lawless Heaven. Barbero walks in and asks if he could have a moment. Nero asks if it's about Avilio. Barbero says that he thinks they should take him off security at the playhouse. He feels that Avilio resents them over what happened to Corteo, especially Nero. Nero interrupts him, saying that he cleared all suspicion on himself yesterday and that he would have no reason to resent them. He's says that Avilio's like an empty shell now, but that "[he]'ll give [him] something to live for."
In Vincent's room, he lies in his bed as Del Toro sits on a chair beside him. Nero enters the room and they both turn to look at him. Nero smiles at his father and asks how he's feeling. His father says well enough and asks if he spoke to the doctor. Nero says that the doctor said he'd be right as rain. Still smiling, Vince tells him not to hide it; he knows he's on his way out. Nero looks solemnly back before nodding slowly. The two wait silently as Del Toro exits the room before Vince begins to speak again.
Vince tells his son about his constant regret about killing the Lagusa family and how he is constantly thinking about if there could have been another way to stop them from getting swallowed up by the Galassias besides killing his best friend. Nero, who had been listening quietly, waits until Vince is finished and then tells him that the Vanetti name is more important than anything. He says that he's ready to do what he must. Vince smiles at him and begins lifting up his right hand, weakly, to Nero. Nero is sadden by this, but clasps his hands over his father's; covering up the scar left by Testa. He lovingly holds it close to his face as his father looks up at him.
Angelo returns home to his apartment. He announces to no one that he's home with a gloomy voice. Smiling and pouring a drink, he says that he's been waiting for so long for this day to come. It's shown that he poured a second glass as well. Still smiling, he says to himself that he wonders if he actually had been waiting and says that he can't tell anymore. The camera pans over to show that someone is sitting quietly across from him. Angelo asks himself why he came back and what he's been killing for. Still smiling, he then directs the question at Corteo. It's shown that the other people is a hallucination of him. He sits quietly staring back at him, with a small smile on his face as well. Angelo downs his glass as Corteo's remains untouched. Over Angelo's shoulder, it's shown that no one is there and Angelo quietly says that everything will be over tomorrow.
The next day, at the Playhouse, a large group of reporters stand waiting for Vincent Vanetti to make an appearance. As a car pulls up, Tigre is shown trying to hold them back. Del Toro opens Vince's door and he comes out. Nero walks around to support his father as reporters begin shouting questions and snapping pictures. One asking if he has anything to say after not been seen in public in 3 years. As he and Nero walk towards the playhouse, Vince stops and marvels at its beauty. Nero smiles and agrees and they press on. Helping keep the reporters back, Angelo looks over his shoulder at the two. He has bags under his eyes and he turns around further to show Barbero looking at him suspiciously. Angelo looks back for a moment before being interrupted by a car pulling up. Don Galassia steps out of his car and waves while smiling. Some photographers take his picture.
Inside, Del Toro stands outside the door as Vince and Ganzo talk. Vince asks how he likes the playhouse. He says that he modeled it after La Scala in Milan. Ganzo finishes that Vince called in an Italian architect to come build it, and that he's said that 50 times as he puts out his cigarette. Vince says that the playhouse was his dream. Ganzo looks at him with no expression before smiling and saying that he's envious. He says that he now has everything. Standing up, he says that once they work things out with Galassia, it'll all be secured. Walking towards the door with his back facing Vince, he stops smiling and says that he's sure Testa would understand before walking out.
Angelo enters the room and points his gun at Vince. Galassia asks what he's doing. He points his gun at Vince and says that he killed his family. Vince says that he doesn't know him. He says that his father was Testa Lagusa. This shocks Vincent.
