Before we move into the details, there are two main points you need to know about this episode. The first one is Vanno desperately wants to revenge for a new kid named Tronco. This young man who was killed by Fango’s man when he and Vanno were transporting liquors. The second point is, Nero’s sister Fio is married to Ronaldo, Don Galassias’s nephew.
Now, who is this Don Galassias? Never heard of this name before, right?
In episode 1, we learned that the Vanettis and the Orcos are the two mafia families ruling over Lawless. The Galassiass, however, does not directly involve in Lawless. Instead, it controls the whole Chicago. In other words, the Galassiass has more power than the Vanettis and the Orcos. Both of them have to obey the Galassiass if they don’t want any trouble.
So, since Ronaldo has become one of the Vanettis, after marrying with Fio Vanetti, does this mean that the Vanettis is now stronger than the Orcos? Unfortunately: NO. Because, instead of siding with the Vanettis, the Galassiass wants these two families to play nice with each other.
Don Vanetti, who is careful and cautious, does not have much opinion on this decision, but not Nero. Nero insists that if they want to solve their problems with the Orcos, they have to settle things by themselves, instead of waiting for miracle. And does Vanno, the man who just lost his young friend Tronco, agree to be buddy with the Orcos? The answer is obvious.
Now, since the Galassiass already stated clearly that both families shall play nice, the Vanettis can’t start a fight with the Orcos directly, unless they want to ruin their relationship with the Galassiass. Hence, Nero suggests to appoint someone outside the family to take down Fango, who is indirectly responsible for Tronco’s death. Needless to say, that “someone” happens to be their new companion—Avilio.
Even though Avilio never killed anyone before, he agrees to take the task without any hesitations. Of course, it comes with one condition: let him join the Vanettis after the mission. And from here, he obtains his first gun from Vanno.
On Wednesday night, Avilio sneaks into Lacrima’s apartment, where Fango is enjoying his mistress Lacrima’s brutal whipping. While he is having fun, Fango spotted Avilio through a mirror so he managed to dodge away from Avilio’s bullet. Avilio’s appearance did not turn off his fire, on contrary, he is getting more and more excited.
When you think that Avilio can take Fango’s chubby mistress as a hostage, Fango reacts faster and uses her as a shield. Apparently, Fango is still in ecstasy. He puts his gun under Lacrima’s armpit, shakes it like what they’re supposed to do next, and urges Avilio to shoot his gun. Without hesitation, Fango shoots through Lacrima’s arm. This Fango is always full of surprises. Avilio must be startled by his performance too.
After some shootings, Fango escapes from the balcony, jumping skilfully from roof to roof. Avilio has a chance to shoot him but he shuts his eyes, as if he rather he misses the shot. Serpente, Fango’s man, comes in to save his master. But before he can attack, Vanno shows up in time and knocks him down.
Although they did not catch Fango, Vanno is happy to capture Serpente because he is the one who killed Tronco. Avilio reminds Vanno that he will be in trouble if he, a member of the
Vanettis, kills Serpente, a member of the Orcos. Vanno isn’t concerned about that as he is going to kill this murderer at the graveyard in the old village.
Vanno brings Serpente to Tronco’s grave and shoots at him without mercy. When he has settled with Serpente, Avilio shows up from his back and shoots at him, with the gun he received from him earlier! Surprise, surprise.
As a matter of fact, Avilio was informed by the mysterious letter that the people who killed his family are Vincente Vanetti, Nero Vanetti and…Vanno Clemente. In other words, Avilio didn’t agree to take up this task just to join the Vanettis only, but also to kill Vanno during this mission! Killing two birds with one stone! How about that?
Avilio then reports to Nero, saying that Vanno was killed by Serpente before he himself could shoot Serpente. Covering up his crime and claiming his credit at the same time, smart move! However, Nero, unable to believe this, requests Avilio to bring him there. When Avilio brings Nero and Barbero, whom Nero claimed to be his “brain”, to the graveyard to show them the bodies, there is only one body there…
Next, Nero points his gun at Avilio, who had exposed his true identity to Vanno before he shot him.
Where did the other body go? Did Nero find out who Avilio really is? How can Avilio escape this time?
