Last episode, a mystery was left unsolved: two people died on spot but only one body was left there. Where had the other one gone?
Nero immediately suspects that Avilio was the one who killed Vanno. While he points his gun at Avilio’s head, Avilio looks him in the eyes and denies it. It’s quite difficult to not believe in him when he looks so genuine like that, even when we all know who did it.
When Avilio gets back home, finding Colteo napping on the table, he can’t help to bring up his suspicion: Were you the one who moved the body? Colteo is startled by Avilio’s question but obviously he is innocent. Why? Because right up next he goes to a bar to meet Cerotto, the guy who helped Avilio to distract Serpente’s attention last night. Colteo informs him of the murder and mentions that Avilio had received orders to hunt the killer down.
Before Cerotto can share anything with us, the scene changes to the Orcos who is having bad lasagna in a restaurant. Our runaway clown Fango shows up in barefoot, telling his master Don Orco that he was attacked by someone who, he suspected, was sent by the Vanettis. He suggests to throw a dynamite into Vanetti’s turf, while showing off his dirty foot on the table, right in front of Don Orco. Don Orco is so enraged by Fango’s suggestion, not by his foot though, that he almost spears his foot with a fork. Despite Don Orco’s anger, Fango takes over his fork and eats lasagna from someone’s plate. You can see what a “carefree” person he is.
Don Orco is not going to revenge for Fango, as he understands that the Galassias wants them to get along with the Vanettis. Well, Fango yawns at those “mafia politics” and says that he’ll take care of it in his way, anyway. When he asks about Serpente’s whereabouts, someone suggests that he was snatched away by the Vanettis. Fango is so pissed off by this assumption that he spears the man’s hand with his fork, which he used to eat lasagna.
Then back to Colteo and Cerotto. Cerotto tells Colteo what he saw that day. They thought Vanno and Serpente killed each other because he heard sound of gunshots and saw the bodies on the ground. But he didn’t witness the killing. Colteo says that this will only make Cerotto a suspect of helping Serpente to kill Vanno, since Serpente’s body is gone. Cerotto becomes panic and saying that he shouldn’t had gone greedy. While he mumbles that he has to inform his “big brother”, Avilio shows up from the shade of curtain, like a phantom. Apparently, he has been listening to this conversation all the while.
Avilio demands to know the whereabouts of Serpente’s body. Cerotto has no choice but to admit that he sold the body to Scusa, an officer from the Federal Bureau of Prohibition who showed up in town recently. Avilio orders him to bring him to the body.
Now, why would Scusa want Serpente’s body? It turns out that Scusa knows about the “peace deal” between the Vanettis ant the Orcos. Hence, if Serpente’s body is found after Vanno had abducted him, the Orco will probably declare war on the Vanettis. Therefore, Scusa hid Serpente’s body in order to blackmail the Vanettis. However, Don Vanetti didn’t let him had his way. He demands to see the body first before he decides anything.
After Scusa left to bring Serpente’s body over, the Vanettis starts a fierce argument. Ronaldo, who has just joined the Vanettis and somehow sides with Nero’s younger brother Frate, accuses Nero of killing Serpente. He suggests to get rid of Nero first before the Galassias finds out
the truth. However, Don Vanetti wants him to step away from this matter as he prefers to settle this by himself.
On the other hand, Fango found Nero’s driver and decided to beat him out for answers. Avilio saw that from the window and stages an act to attract him up. He disguises himself as Serpente and held hostage by Nero, to exchange for the driver. Of course, cunning Fango notices something wrong about the clothes and becomes suspicious.
Somehow, Nero and Avilio manage to escape from Fango. While they are walking among the crowd, Nero thinks about how Avilio looked him in the eyes after he reassured him that Serpente was the one who killed Vanno. What did he understand from those eyes? Hard to tell but Nero definitely has something in his mind.
Frate meets up with Nero and the others. He urges Nero to leave the city as he is a suspect murderer for Serpente’s death. Avilio volunteers to go with him since Fango has already recognised his face. Nero agrees to take him. But is it because he trusts him, after seeing Avilio’s emotionless eyes? We can only find out later.
After Vanno’s funeral, Avilio and Nero left the city together while, on the other hand, a mysterious man received a call from an unknown “gentleman” to kill two men…
