In the end, Colteo failed to escape from Lawless and was caught back to Nero by the Fango family members. The members understood that since they had lost their leader, their only option was to join force with the Vanettis, if they wanted to save their family. And Colteo was the best gift to show their sincerity.
Avilio showed no emotion when he learned Colteo was caught. While Ganzo was interrogating Colteo, he left the room with Nero and Nero told him that Colteo has to die for what he did. Avilio remained silence until Barbero came and asked him to leave for a while. Once Avilio got back to his house, he finally released all his anger and frustration.
Avilio could not understand why Colteo did all those things until Cerotto talked to him. He finally realized that he was the one who changed Colteo’s life. Therefore, he decided to save Colteo from the Vanettis, with a penknife…… (Seriously, do you know what you’re doing, Avilio?)
Luckily, before Avilio could rush into the garage where Colteo was kept, a gunfire happened. Ganzo, who was the only survivor of the gunfire, claimed that Colteo had run away when the other man suddenly pulled out his gun. Under Nero’s order, the Vanettis started to search the whole town for Colteo. But none of them found him, including Avilio.
While Avilio was trying hard to find Colteo, Colteo got in touch with him. Apparently, Colteo was caught by the mysterious man who sent the letter to Avilio. As expected, this mysterious man wanted Avilio to get rid of the men on the list FOR HIM. It wasn’t about Avilio’s revenge at all. Avilio was given 24 hours to kill Nero. If Nero still lives, Colteo will die.
Avilio tried to figure out who was the forth man. In order to save Colteo, he only had two options: to kill Nero according to the man’s order; or find out the mysterious man and negotiate with him directly. But so far, there was no clue about this mysterious man. How could he possibly know?
Hence, Avilio decided to stick with Nero and observed for the day. When he went to see Vincent Vanetti with Nero, a new character showed up. Naturally, we all can’t help but to suspect: Can he be the forth man we have been looking for? He does have a suspicious looking face.
So after Nero had officially become the new Don Vanetti, Tigre and Avilio had a drinking celebration with him. Avilio tried to find out more about this Del Toro, the suspicious character who stood next to Vincent the whole time. When this man was becoming more and more likely the forth man on that murderous night, Nero told Avilio that he was not at the scene because he was still in prison. (So much for that suspicious looking face.)
Since Avilio failed to discover the true identity of the mysterious man, his only option now was to kill Nero. When Tigre excused himself, Nero closed his eyes for a while, Avilio had the perfect chance to kill Nero, with the knife on the ham… (Seriously, Avilio, you really prefer these small knives over other weapons, don’t you?)
However, before Avilio could make his move, Nero suddenly opened his mouth and said, “Uncle Ganzo thinks pretty highly of you.” On top of that, Ganzo was also the one who pushed Nero to take him to see Vincent. These statements had changed the whole story.
Why? First of all, Avilio didn’t have much interaction with Ganzo before. Why would Ganzo support someone who he barely knew? He’s obviously not an open-minded person. Secondly, most of the Vanetti members started to doubt Avilio’s loyalty when they learned that Colteo was the traitor. Then why didn’t this old-fashioned guy suspect Avilio like the others? Not only that, he even showed his trust to this boy in such sensitive timing. Obviously, Avilio had not done anything which impressed him. So what made Ganzo believe in him so much? Unless, Ganzo knows something about Avilio’s background……
Therefore, Avilio decided to hold back his plan and excused himself to settle some unfinished business. Before he leaves, Nero confessed to him that he could not shoot anyone seven years ago. Like the boy who escaped, he ran away from the duty which his father assigned him. In other words, he was a witness of that murder, not a murderer. Avilio was not surprised. Instead, he asked Nero an interesting question: Can he kill that boy now?
Well, Avilio finally discovered the true identity of the mysterious man in this episode. And, perhaps, Nero also noticed that Avilio is somehow related to the incident seven years ago. If not, he would not have made a confession like that.
The ultimate question is: Can Avilio and Nero bring themselves to kill the man whom they had established a strong bond with? Let’s wait and see!
