Having been set up by mobster Frank Mansucci, Executive ADA Stone takes a different tack in pursuing him. Although Mansucci can no longer be tried for the murder of the trucking union official, they hope to convict him of kidnapping the man. They get a warrant to wiretap his conversations for a month hoping to get more information. They also arrest his brother-in-law Harv Beigal for bribing a city official and hope that the threat of a stretch in Attica may get him to testify. Beigal flatly refuses to testify but does tell Stone how his brother-in-law Mansucci gave the orders to have someone eliminated. When Beigal suddenly disappears, Stone and the police are quite certain he's been disposed of. Beigal's wife says she's never been involved in the family business and has no information for them. As everyone soon learns, some problems have a way of resolving themselves. Written by garykmcd

Some murderous moves
13 November 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

At the end of the first part of this story in episode one Michael Moriarty and Steven Hill are left with egg on their after Charles Cioffi walks. The DA's office is out for blood now.

They do a good job in setting up Stephen McHattie the hitter from the first part and now he rolls over in earnest from his prison cell. But Cioffi has some murderous moves left. He's not leaving any loose ends this time.

The real life links in Cioffi's performance to John Gotti and to Joey Gallo become even more pronounced in this second half.

The one to watch in this story is Cioffi's sister Christina Baranski. In the end she settles all accounts. In two episodes you can compare her character development to that of Talia Shire in all the Godfather films.

In fact this might be the best ending all around.
