Fango often acts ostentatiously and seems to have little to no empathy for others. He frequently shows that he is into sadomasochism and he is almost borderline crazy individual. He seems to have good memory on faces, since he recognised Angelo and Corteo, who arrived at the Island, seeking help from him.
Fango is a middle-aged man of relatively tall height and a muscular body. He has chin-length blonde hair with a red streak down the right side of his bangs. He has thin brown eyebrows and sharp dark-brown beard.
He is shown in four outfits: His main outfit is a brown bomber jacket, white open-collared shirt, denim cowboy pants, halved by brown leather chaps and light-brown cowboy boots with a feather necklace. After killing Orco, he wears a chef's outfit. After becoming Don of Orco's family, he wears a dark Burgundy red open collared business shirt with short sleeves, light-red vest, black dress pants and white dress shoes, with a white scarf as an accessory, as his hair is slicked back. At the golf course, he wears dark-brown boots, light-brown pants, dark-brown jacket with a pink shirt and dark-red tie.
In 1928, Fango had recently become a member of the Orco Family. He quickly became well known as being crazy. He began taking large sections of the Vanetti Family's turf, causing trouble for them.
Fango is first mentioned by Cerotto when he tells Corteo that his older brother works with Fango, who's a new guy working with the family, but that he's a psycho.
On the day of Angelo's arrival in Lawless, Fango, Gatto, and Serpente travel to the Island in search of Nero Vanetti. The Vanettis had recently flinched booze from across the border, even though the routes over the border belong to the Orcos. Serpente first enters the bar while Fango and Gatto go and ask Tigre.
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.
Inside the bar, as Nero and Angelo discuss Corteo's booze, they are interrupted when 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
The episode opens with Fio Vanetti asking her husband, Ronald Galassia, to bring her brother, Nero Vanetti, back to the family as they sit together in their bedroom. He replies that if Nero swears loyalty to the Galassias, then he'll let him live, though Frate Vanetti will be the next don. Fio says that she just doesn't want their family fighting anymore. He replies that it's all up to Nero, and if he submits, he'll be fine.
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.
In the car, Avilio and Nero complain about Fango. They both feel that he is running them ragged and that he'll try to steal their booze from them. Avilio also thinks that after they're not useful anymore, he'll probably kill them. Nero asks what he thinks they should do, and Avilio says that the only place that they can rest easy is with the Vanetti family, save for Frate and Ronald.
At what appears to be Frate's office, Ronald enters, marveling at the mess. He asks what's wrong, calling him "Caesar," and says that he looked much bolder when he was "casting the die." He also says that it's too late now for regrets. Ronald tells him that he has good points that Nero lacks, such as that he's sincere; that that was the first thing that he liked about him. He also says that he's the only one who really worries about the family, and that that's the reason they have to kill Nero, because he's the only one who can save the family. Ronald slides him a packet of cocaine and tells him to take it and have a rest.
At a speakeasy, a patron orders Lawless Heaven. The bartender denies him, saying that he'd have to go to one of Fango's bars. He is confused, saying that it should be the other way around, as Vanetti's should have Lawless Heaven. As he starts talking, though, Nero and Volpe walk in the bar. Nero walks up to the bartender and offers that he should buy from Fango. The bartender agrees. Immediately after, Ganzo Alary enters the bar and tells them to stop making trouble on their turf. Volpe approaches him first and tells him that they don't have anything to say to him, and tells him to get lost. Before he finishes, though, Ganzo punches him in the stomach and he falls to the ground. He walks up to the counter where Nero is standing. Nero greets him and they have some playful banter. Ganzo asks that they go outside to talk.
Outside, Ganzo asks Nero to return home. He says that it's simply a feud between brothers and offers to mediate on his behalf. He says that he taught both him and his brother about women. He says that he made Nero into a real man, so he should just do as he's told. He also says that a lot of people in the family miss him, and that many of them wanted to be in Ganzo's place, going to see Nero. Nero says that he could refuse him.
Back at Frate's office, he is looking over their income. Now profits are half what they used to be three months ago. Ganzo replies that it is because Nero took the secret brewery. As they're talking, Ronald interrupts saying that he's naive because even after he met with him, Nero is still making money on their turf. He says that at this rate, Fango and Nero will run them out of business. Frate turns to Ganzo and says that it's now life or death between him and his older brother. Ganzo asks if he's going to say that in front of Vincent. Ronald then says that Nero is an enemy of the family and that Don Galassia wants Frate to take over the family.
Nero and Avilio are walking and Avilio says that Fango probably already knows where the lodge is. Nero says that it doesn't matter because they don't actually have the recipe. Nero says that they should actually be worried about Corteo. Avilio says that he should be fine, since Barbero is with him. After that, a car pulls up in front of them and Fio gets out of the car.
At the Island, Nero and Avilio are sitting at the bar. Fango approaches Nero and tells him that he is the one who should become don of the Vanettis. He says that he'll support it and to keep up the good work. After he walks away, Nero asks how many people have been killed that were supposed to have been in the same family. A man walks up to him and says that Fio was calling him.
At the mansion, Avilio had been sent to see Fio and Ronald. Avilio brought flowers that he says are from her brother. She notices a small note admits the bouquet. She reads the note and seems to be distressed, as Avilio and Ronald talk about Nero. Avilio leaves, saying that Nero will arrive shortly. Ronald walks to his desk and retrieves his gun. He notices Fio's concern, and says that it's only for safety. She asks if he is going to kill Nero, and he replies that the Vanetti's only option is to become a puppet to the Galassias. Though Frate understands that, Nero doesn't. He brings her closer to embrace her, but she shoots him in the stomach. He reaches for his gun but Fio shoots him a second time in the chest and he falls to the floor. She seems horrified and apologizes, saying it was the only way for her to protect Frate and her family. He finally dies as Ganzo and Avilio come back in. Avilio picks up his note and Ganzo walks over to Ronald to confirm that he is dead.
Nero and Avilio enter Frate's office and Nero asks how long he's going to stay cooped up. He tells him that he should go out of the country for some fresh air. Frate asks if he'll ever be able to return. He notes that he never missed mass. Nero did what ever he wanted, and yet, Vincent only ever cared for him. He says that he always envied Nero, since his dad acknowledged him. Nero says that their father loved him, but Frate says that he doesn't want to be loved, but acknowledged.
Avilio walks up and pulls his gun on Frate. He lifts up his book to reveal that there was a gun under it. Avilio says that what he says is nonsense and asks how many people were dragged into their feud because of him. He asks why he doesn't just put an end to it as he hands him a gun. Frate says that he isn't afraid as he stares at the gun. Nero begs him not to, but Frate hears Ronald in his head telling him to, so he pulls the gun out and pulls the trigger, but there isn't any bullets. Nero shoots after this in self defense, shooting Frate in the chest and killing him. Outside the room, it is shown that Avilio had emptied the gun beforehand and throws the bullets into one of the plants.
Before boarding a train, Avilio tells Fio to say that Frate killed Ronald. That's why Nero killed his brother to prove his loyalty to the Galassias.
As Nero sits mourning over the loss of his brother, Avilio pus his hand on his shoulder and says that starting today, they'll be brothers.
Walking down the hallway, Corteo overhears Avilio comforting Nero after the death of his younger brother, Frate. He is reminded of when he comforted Avilio after his family's murder.
Stepping out of a building, Scusa and Delphy are met by a group of reporters. Scusa introduces Delphy as the Federal Bureau of Prohibition from Chicago. He says that he will be keeping peace in Lawless in his stead. A reporter asks why he would come to Lawless, and he answers that "There's a rotten stench in this town, and it's coming from the mafia." and that he wants to end the police corruption. First, the Fango family, with the Island as their home base, he will sweep away. After that, the Vanetti family that has been controlling the city for many years with Nero as the don. Lawless heaven has been fetching high prices domestically and internationally of late. A reporter interjects that Nero is popular with the city's people, much more so than the cops. This is ignored by Delphy and he says that "The power struggle between the two families is endangering public order in the city." He says that they will first crack down on the brewing of moonshine, and then they themselves.
At the Vanetti mansion, Nero Vanetti, Barbero, Avilio, and Corteo are sitting together listening to a broadcast of Delphy speaking. Nero turns it off, and Barbero suggests that they cut down the production of Lawless Heaven. Nero refuses this, and tells him to keep rolling it out. Because "the sinners are waiting." Barbero laughs at this. Corteo stares at Avilio nervously.
Fango looks at a picture of Delphy. He remarks that he must have a big penis. Gatto, who is driving, looks at him, surprised. Fango says that since he has a big nose, he must have a big dick. Gatto says that he looks like the straight-laced, stubborn type. Fango says that guys like him are easy to deal with. He says that he thinks it's time to crush the Vanettis.
In a cafe, Delphy sits at the counter, drinking, eating toast and reading papers. An employee approaches and greet him, telling him to look at the wall behind him. There are multiple bullet holes there. He tells Delphy that he supports him because he's sick of violence. Delphy is happy and thanks him. Their conversion is interrupted as the door opens.
Corteo and Avilio walk in and sit on either side of him. Delphy asks what Vanetti's dogs want with him. Avilio plops a stack of money on his plate. Delphy asks what it is. Avilio reaches over and takes his coffee. He says that since Delphy just moved there, he probably has a lot of expenses. Avilio adds two spoon fulls of sugar to the coffee. Delphy tells him to keep his dirty money. Avilio adds another 2 spoonful and says "Your daughter is four years old now, correct?" This shocks Delphy and Corteo. Avilio puts his coffee back and stands up. He tells Delphy that he should take care of his family before walking towards the door. Corteo stands up to follow him, but when he walks past Delphy, Delphy shoves the money in front of his chest and says that he forgot it. He says to tell Nero that he will crush him, no matter what. Corteo looks very uncomfortable as he takes the envelope.
Cortep runs after Avilio who continued walking down the street. Corteo asks that he dug up info on his family. Corteo slips the envelope into Avilio's coat pocket. Corteo stops walking and smiles, remarking that Avilio has grown completely at home in the mafia. Avilio doesn't acknowledge Corteo and continues walking. Corteo stared at him as he walks away.
As Corteo, Tigre, Barbero and Avilio sit in Nero's office reading the newspaper, Tigre calls Delphy a big-nosed freak. Nero walks in and asks what's wrong. Barbero hands Nero a newspaper, and Nero reads out loud that Delphy exposes multiple establishments selling bootleg liquor. Nero has bags under his eyes.
Tigre scoffs that Delphy's messing with them. Barbero tells Nero that more and more bars are passing on buying their liquor. Angry, Nero says to fire rounds into Delphy's house, and, if that doesn't work, to rub him out. Nero turns and walks out of the room. Barbero calls out to him, but he still leaves. Barbero says that it's really affecting him. Tigre asks what he expects.
In the back yard, Nero smokes a cigarette. Avilio walks out and remarks that the weathers nice and asks if he wants to go for a ride. Nero takes the cigarette out of his mouth and says that he made up his mind to never get in a car that he's driving again. He then smiles. The two then laugh together.
Avilio lights his own cigarette and leans against a bush. Nero lays on the ground. Avilio says that Fangp will make a move soon and that they best move cautiously from now on. Nero says that he's the only one left now and that he has to protect the family. He begins to say what he has to do, but then sits up and asks if Avilio will come with him. He agrees. Corteo stands inside by the window, watching them.
That night, at a bar, a drunk Cerotto remarks that he never thought that Corteo would join the mafia since he used to always say that he hated them. Corteo says that he does still hate them. Cerotto says that Fango wants him. He says that Prohibition's ending soon and Fango wants some really good booze to prepare for that day, that's why he needs him. Cerotto says that having someone like him acknowledge him is pretty amazing. Corteo refuses. Cerotto is shocked and says that he could be rich.
At a church, Delphy kneels in a confessional. He asks if something is true and Fango, from the other side says that it is, but it's not a trade off. He slips a map through. Fango says that it's just a tip.
Corteo is shocked that the Lodge is being investigated. Barbero, Corteo, Avilio, Nero, and Tigre sit in Nero's office. Tigre curses him. Nero tells them to take out his family. Barbero and Tigre looks very uncomfortable and Barbero asks that they just take him out. Avilio answers no for him, and says that someone else would pick up the investigation. Corteo looks shocked at this. Smiling, Nero agrees and says that they need Delphy himself to call it off.
At the police station, Delphy calls a recess. A police officer says that he's taking his family to a picnic and asks if he wants to come. Delphy says that he'd like to, but he can't. He says that he'd love to get out with the family soon through. After they all walk away, Scusa sneaks in and goes through the door.
Corteo says that Avilio must be kidding and asks what he thinks he's doing going after Delphy's family when his revenge is just against the Vanettis. Avilio tosses a stack of money over to him. Corteo asks what it's for, and Avilio says for college. He says to stay out of his life. As Avilio is in the doorway, Corteo throws the money at him and it explodes all over the floor. Corteo yells that he's the one who dragged him into everything. Avilio doesn't turn around and keeps walking.
At Delphy's house, the phone rings. Delphy answers it and a man tells him to call off the investigation at once. Delphy says that he won't respond to threats. The voice says that it's his last warning. He again refuses and hangs up the phone as his wife and daughter look scared. His wife says that he works too much and that he should take some time off. Delphy agrees as he walks them to the door. A police officer waits there and he asks that he take care of them. He kisses his daughter on the head and tells her to listen to her mother. The phone rings again as his wife says that they'll get going.
Delphy hesitates but then answers. As he does this, the police officer starts the car and it explodes. Delphy is horrified and runs outside. He finds the car on fire and looks on in terror. Luckily, his daughter was looking for her teddy bear and the two hadn't yet entered the car. Delphy falls to his knees in relief.
On the Island, Fango asks if he's sure about the info to someone on the phone. He says that he's surprised because he never thought that he'd come to him.
The newspaper prints that Delphy called off the investigation. The bartender reads this and is disappointed and says that that's always how it ends up.
At the Playhouse, Barbero says that since Delphy called off the investigation, they'll leave the Lodge alone now. Nero, Barbero, and Avilio walk outside and Nero says that it's good. Nero says that he can't believe that they called them out there just to check the carpet color. A man approaches from the other side of the road. Barbero quickly runs in front of Avilio and Avilio in front of Nero. Barbero puts his hand on his gun and tells the man not to come any closer. The man says that he's a huge fan of Nero's. Nero smiles and says that he's glad to hear it as he starts to walk away. The man tells him to hear him out and runs toward him. He tells him to let him join the family. Barbero steps between them and tells him to take a hike.
As they argue, Avilio looks around and sees two men in the shadows. They pull machine guns out of a box so Avilio calls out to Nero. They begin shooting but only the fan gets hit as Barbero and Nero both jump out of the way. Avilio shoots at the men but they run away, unharmed. Avilio chases them, but they get into a car and drive off. They stare at the fan who is now dead, laying in a pool of his own blood.
At the office again, Corteo, Avilio, Barbero, Tigre, and Nero sit together. Tigre slams his fist on the desk and says that Fango must have set the whole thing up. Barbero says that not too many people knew that Nero would be there today. Nero turns around and tells them to find the traitor.
In a car overlooking the town, Fango tells a crying Corteo to calm down. Corteo asks how he can. Fango says that they'd love to take him in at their place, but then they'd know that he's the one who betrayed them. Cerotto listens nervously in the front. Fango tells him to have a drink from his flask and calm down. Corteo begins gulping it down but begins to choke. Fango says that they'll kill Nero next time and then the Vanettis will be through. Then, he can make booze with them and make loads of cash. Corteo gets out of the car and Fango asks if he's gonna walk home.
Stumbling as he makes his way home, Corteo drops the flask and says that everyone just cares about themselves. From the car, Fango glares at him as he walks away.
In Nero's office, Nero peeks between the blinds and sees a group of 4 men standing and two of them talk to each other. Nero chuckles slightly and remarks to Angelo that that is what high alert looks like. Outside the door, men begin arguing, so Angelo and Nero turn to the door. Ganzo tells Nero to let him in while Tigre tries to stop him. He knocks and tells him to open up. Nero begins walking towards the door, but Angelo stops him.
Angelo opens the door to Ganzo and Tigre, with the former looking uncomfortable. Ganzo is annoyed, saying that he didn't come to talk to him. Angelo tells him that no one's allowed to see Nero at the moment. Angry, Ganzo steps towards him and asks him how many years he thinks that he's been there. Angelo doesn't react but Tigre seems to be ready to pull him off of him, if needed. Ganzo finishes that it was before Nero was even born. Barbero interrupts him, calling him "uncle" and then nods and apologizes. Ganzo "tsks" and then walks away.
Barbero walks in afterwards, telling Tigre not to let anyone in before closing the door.
At the Lodge, Corteo lifts up a box and carries it close to the door. Barbero, carrying an umbrella, is just now entering the building and, smiling, calls out to him.
The two sit down together inside. Barbero says that they're done for and won't be able to come back there for a while. Corteo asks if he found out who did it. Barbero says that everyone's a suspect. Smiling, he finishes that that includes themselves. Corteo, now looking nervous, smiles and says that he can leaves the Lodge to him. Barbero smiles and thanks him. Corteo quickly stands up and walks toward one of the tanks. As he stands by one and another man, he looks out of the corner of his eye to see Barbero looking towards him and frowning. Corteo is shocked and turns away.
As Corteo walks home alone, he spots Gatto across the street sitting in his car and glaring at him. He continues walking, nervously and stumbles slightly before continuing on.
At the Vanetti Mansion, Tigre tells a newcomer to start by learning everyone's names. Corteo stands around the corner listening nervously. Tigre tells the man that if he needs to piss, knock.
In Nero's office, Nero looks over some papers and asks Barbero if it's the list of invitees. Barbero says that it is, excluding the ones who haven't replied yet. Angelo stands by the window, silently looking out of the blinds. Nero says that he doesn't recognize most of the names, and asks if it will be okay. Barbero says that he vetted them before inviting them. Outside, Angelo spots Corteo walking out of the building. He tries to light a cigarette and, after briefly failing, crushes it in his fist. Angelo watches on with a blank expression.
On the Island in Fango's office, Fango lines up a swing for golf as Cerotto watches from behind. Fango swings heavily without hitting it, then asks how he was. Distracted, Cerotto is taken back and compliments his swing. Fango says that he meant Corteo and asks if he sent them any more news on Nero. Cerotto apologizes and says that he hadn't. They're interrupted by a knock on the door and Lacrima comes in. She says that he has an unusual visitor.
Fango laughs and says that he thought Scusa had left town. He also says he thought he was replaced as head of the Bureau. Scusa smiles and thanks him for asking. He says that he's been reinstated. As he walks in, he mocks surprise at seeing Cerotto. Cerotto nervously says that it's nice to see him. Annoyed, Scusa furrows his brows and remarks that he was there then. Cerotto looks away nervously and says "Y-Yeah..."
Fango takes a sip of liquor and says that it's good. He has a paper in front of him. Scusa asks what he'll doing with Corteo, then. Fango says that he knows too much about too much. Cerotto looks disturbed by this.
Cerotto looks unhappy as he drives Corteo. Corteo quietly asks why Fango's calling him out there at that time of night. Cerotto doesn't answer and looks ahead, uncomfortable. It's shown that Corteo is holding a flask and appears to be drunk. Corteo looks at him and again, quietly, says that he's been awfully quiet. Without looking at him, Cerotto says that the city's gotten dangerous lately as Corteo takes another sip. Cerotto asks if he wants to go to Chicago. He continues that prohibition's on the way out and, as long as they have the recipe, it won't take any time to make money. Corteo asks him what he's talking about. Cerotto says that it's no use and that he reeks of booze. He says that he's going to get drunk off of him.
Corteo quietly and slowly knocks on Fango's door. Fango stands facing his desk with a record playing and the curtains blowing in the wind. He turns and smiles at him, standing beside his golf club. He welcomes Corteo to "his castle." He asks if he wants a drink. Corteo closes the door and asks what he wanted to talk about. Fango pours a glass and says that he'll keep it brief. He hands it to him and says that he's through working with him. Surprised, Corteo stops walking. Fango, smiling, says that he had no more use for him. Shaking, Corteo takes the glass and asks if he didn't want his alcohol. Fango tells him to have a drink first, and calm down. Corteo slowly takes a slip and is horrified to find that it's his. Looking smug, Fango pulls out the paper from earlier, and Corteo finds that it's the recipe. Fango says that Scusa copied it for him from what "that big-nose" confiscated. He also made him a sample. He takes a swig from the bottle and exclaims that you "can't beat that kick." He begins laughing but then stops suddenly, saying that Scusa is "human garbage." He then smiles again and says that he tried to charge him out the nose for it. Corteo stares at him, horrified, and Fango reiterates that he no longer needs him. The record reaches the end of it's track and stops playing. [Pinebamboo: The King is Dead by Shogo Kaida].
He puts down the bottle and recipe and picks up his golf club. He begins walking towards Corteo and he steps back, nervously. Corteo suddenly trips and finds that it was over Scusa's body, with his forehead caved in. He realizes that his blood is on the bottom of the club. Fango watches with glee before closing his eyes and telling him to forget it and get lost as he points to the door with his club. Corteo walks towards the door before Fango tells him that he might tell Nero who the real traitor is. He begins the record once again as Corteo stops walking. Fango, standing in front of the telephone on his desk, tells the operator to get him the Vanetti Mansion. Corteo gasps for air facing the door. Fango continues to tell her to put him through to Nero Vanetti. Corteo turns and begins walking toward him. Fango tells her his name. Before Fango can stop him, Corteo slams the bottle onto Fango's head. He stumbles backwards before Corteo stabs him in the throat and blood begins poring out of the top. With his eyes wide open, he gasps that he can't see and asks where he went. He continues stumbling and says that it feels pretty good. Corteo grabs the telephone from his desk and smashes him on the head and Fango falls to the ground, entangled in the curtains. The record begins to repeat as Corteo smashes at least another 13 times. The blood spreads across the curtain as he continues relentlessly beating him from behind the curtain.
Just having murdered Fango, Corteo walks quickly though the streets of Lawless, trying to make his way to the train station. Just as he's about to board the train, someone reaches from behind and pulls him back. He is accompanied by two other men.
At the Vanetti Mansion, Avilio is led to the garage. There, Nero, Barbero, Ganzo, Corteo are all located. Corteo is being roughed up for answers about his betrayal of the family by Carmelo. Avilio asks how they know it was him, and he motions over to Gatto. He explains that Corteo leaked Nero's schedule to Fango then came back to the island yesterday. Barbero explains that Gatto came to throw himself at their mercy with the info about Corteo. Gatto says that the higher-ups want to work with the Vanettis. Since Fango's gone, they're done for.
Ganzo pushes Carmelo out of the way and begins beating up Corteo and demanding that he explain himself. Avilio watches this without emotion. Nero calmly leaves and Avilio follows him.
In Nero's office, Nero smokes a cigar and Avilio sits on the sofa. Nero says that they have no choice; Corteo needs to die. Avilio doesn't react to this and continues to look down as Barbero also enters the office. He asks Nero if he has a moment. Barbero explains that he's called the Fango family executives to meet with them in the morning of the next day. As Barbero starts to talk about Corteo, he asks Avilio to leave the room. Without a word, Avilio stands up and leaves while Barbero seems to glare at him.
Outside, Tigre and Gianni are talking about Fango. As Tigre notices Avilio, and calls out to him. He says that it must be hard as he knew Corteo for such a long time. Avilio asks of he said anything yet. Tigre says that he hadn't said anything yet. Gianni says that Ganzo might kill him before he does. Tigre says that Ganzo has a real temper when it comes to Nero and begins to say something before looking up at Avilio and apologizing. Avilio tells him that it isn't a problem before walking away.
Avilio calmly walks through town. It briefly shows a sign for Florida. He comes to his house and goes inside. It seems that someone is watching him from across the street (Who wears similar clothes to Cerotto). Once inside his room, Avilio yanks off his tie and kicks his table. Cerotto knocks on the door and Avilio lets him in. After going through the situation, Avilio asks why Corteo killed Fango. Cerotto explains that Fango betrayed Corteo and that once he got the recipe from Scusa, he didn't need him anymore. Distressed, Cerotto says that he would have never seen this coming since Corteo hated the mafia since he was a kid. Cerotto asks why he would want to kill Nero so bad that he would team up with Fango. Avilio thinks back, but then just looks out the window and then leaves without saying anything.
Avilio goes to the Vanetti mansion and walks past Del Toro. As he walks past him, though, Del Toro looks back at him, suspicious. Avilio walks outside to the backyard where he find Nero juggling rocks. He drops one and it rolls to Avilio's feet. Nero greets him and Avilio notes that he seems to be taking it easy. Nero says that he isn't an idiot like Fango. Avilio asks if they'd found any trace of Corteo. Nero replies that they hadn't yet. Nero says that some former bigwigs are meeting today to talk about where the family goes from there with Fango out of the picture. Nero smiles and stands up, and tells Avilio that he should come too. Avilio agrees. As Nero walks away, he kicks the rock he dropped earlier.
Barbero reads that the Fango family is now incorporated into theirs. He says that from now on, he'd like to reconsider the Island as a primary sales route, that they continue rebuilding while expanding the Lodge, and that they work toward mass production. Then, regarding Lawless Heaven, he'd like to prepare to sell it in Chicago in the near future. Ganzo is surprised, as he feels that the Galassias won't like it if they sell there. Nero says that they'll negotiate with them, of course. Nero says that he'd also like to send some to Don Galassia before the Playhouse's opening. He asks Avilio if he'd go in his place. Barbero says that he will handle that, as Avilio isn't ready. Nero disagrees and says that they'll leave it to him. He says that they have the preparations on the Playhouse to finish. Avilio agrees, and Nero says that he's counting on him. Nero tells his father that the rehearsals are starting at the Playhouse soon and that everything's in place. Vince looks happy and says that he can't wait.
The two talk in an alley. Tigre initially talks about Lawless Heaven and apologizes for spying on him. He pauses briefly and then expresses his sadness about Corteo; saying that he's a good guy and that Fango probably fed him a line. Nevertheless, he still has to die. Angelo maintains a blank expression throughout. The boat honks and and they both look towards it. Tigre waves Gianni over who is staring at the boat. Angelo asks if he can go and Tigre says it's fine. As the boat sails away, they send him off.
At the playhouse, Nero says that he can't believe that it will only be two days until it's open. Ganzo says that Don Galassia will come, as promised and that that means he officially accepts the Vanettis as friends. Tigre happily says that Lawless is now his. Nero says that it isn't yet, since there are still those with lingering loyalty to Fango and there's also Corteo. Ganzo puts his hand on Nero's shoulderand says that he and his father will need the best security there is to protect the guests. He says to leave it to him. Nero agrees and then asks where Barbero is. Tigre says that he went to go meet someone at the pier.
At Fango's mansion, Tigre and Nero sit in a room together. Tigre says that they keep coming in swarms, so even if all of their bullets hit, they wouldn't have enough. Nero receives a phone call from Cerotto. He says that Angelo is in room 501 of Hotel Lawless and that everyone's been sent over to the Island. Nero says that he's going and that Tigre and the rest should as well, as he doesn't want to "die in the same place Fango did." Tigre laughs, agreeing, and then adds that they're only after Nero anyways. Nero chugs down the rest of his drink and then says "later." Tigre stops him briefly, starting to says that it's their something, but then says to never mind and instead tells him to sock Avilio for him.
