|A month after Angelo returns||The Melancholy of Barbero||Nero won't leave his room after the death of his brother. After Barbero goes to the Lodge, Angelo brings Nero.
The next day, a tabloid reports that charges have been filed against Scusa, on the suspicion of accepting bribes, causing Barbero to increase their sales.
When Angelo isn't there, Nero says that he could be more sociable but he was raised in an orphanage, making him suspicious.
A few days after being told this, Barbero asks Corteo how they met. After telling him, Barbero says that he won't be back that night and goes to the Island. He finds Cerotto who is working as an information broker. As he is talking to Cerotto, Corteo and Angelo meet distillation room at the Lodge and Corteo tells him that Barbero asked.
(First, he looked for a man from an orphanage who had come to Lawless half a year before. It didn’t matter where he came from. The important thing was that he could prove those, and he soon found a man who met those prerequisites.
Next, he sent a donation to that orphanage and had them add the name Avilio to their register. In this day and age, the running of orphanages was just a power struggle between religious groups, and the adding of names to the register was a daily occurrence, so that was solved with the money and a single call.) ----
Three days later, Cerotto can't find any information. Nero and Avilio drink together.
The next day, Barbero called Avilio, Corteo and Nero to a bar. (Avilio, knowing that he would be cross-examined, arranged with Guccio to have that situation play out) Avilio kills Guccio and throws his corpse into a wooden box. ----
Several days later, Barbero continues to work. A tabloid reports Delphy has been reported.
