Mayor of Kingstown Episode 4 Recap
Episode 4, titled ‘The Price,’ opens with Mike being overrun by demands from the gang leaders in return for their favor. He first makes peace with Bunny, who wants to send another batch of drug paraphernalia to his gang in prison. Mike firmly insists that the guards being lax during their searches is the best he can offer. Bunny grudgingly accepts, but the stressed-out power broker is forced to send stronger signals to other gang leaders who insist on getting favors from the guards.
Eventually, Mike tells his prison guard friend, Ed, to crack down on gang members hard. With this, he hopes to remind the criminals about who’s actually in charge and put them in their place. Though it works for a while, Bunny then informs Mike that the situation could get out of hand if the convicts are pushed too far and revolt. The guards, however, continue to treat their charges with a heavy hand.
Meanwhile, Iris finally meets with Mike, telling him that her boss (Milo) has sent her as a peace offering. To this, the McLusky brother laughs and tells the young girl that she is too soft to survive in Kingstown. The episode then closes with Kyle and Ian involved in a shootout that goes very wrong and almost gets them killed.
