Episode 3 of “Mayor of Kingstown” Season 3 ended with various cars starting to burn outside the Kingstown Police Department. The fourth episode of “Mayor of Kingstown” Season 3 opens with a scene of chaos and destruction outside the Kingstown Police Department, where officials are working hard to arrest those responsible and secure the area.

As the episode unfolds, tensions escalate as the authorities race against time to bring the perpetrators to justice and prevent further chaos from erupting in Kingstown.

The investigation into the arson outside the Kingstown Police Station quickly identifies the first suspect as John York. Meanwhile, the second suspect remains unknown, adding a layer of mystery to the case.

Kyle McLusky (Taylor Handley) informs Mike that the first suspect is affiliated with the Aryan Brotherhood. This revelation raises the possibility that the Aryan Brotherhood leader could have ordered the attack against the Kingstown Police Station.

Mike’s suspicions lead him to believe that Merle could be behind the attack. Determined to get to the bottom of the matter, Mike decides to take matters into his own hands. He meets Kareem Moore (Michael Beach), and asks him to arrange a meeting with Merle.

In the tense atmosphere of the prison, Mike confronts Merle, determined to extract information about the attack on the Kingstown Police Station. As Mike presses him for answers, Merle begins to act evasive, as if he is unaware of any details regarding the attack or those responsible. Later, Mike gives Merle an ultimatum: cooperate or face the consequences.

On the other side of the investigation, the Kingstown Police arrest the first suspect in connection with the attack on their department. During interrogation, they pressure him to reveal the names of those who ordered the attack, hoping to discover the mastermind behind the crime.

Meanwhile, Anna Fletcher (Paula Malcomson) finds herself on trial for the murder of a boy she believed killed her own son. Despite the benevolent circumstances surrounding her actions, Anna chooses to plead guilty, choosing to take responsibility for her actions.

Mike tells Evelyn Foley (Necar Zadegan) to do something and change the outcome, noting that Anna seems like her late mother.

As the episode unfolds, Bunny (Tobi Bamtefa) manages to apprehend the alleged second suspect, a significant development in the investigation. Determined to get answers, Mike wastes no time and goes straight to confront the suspect.

Mike presses the second suspect to reveal who ordered the attack on the Kingstown Police Station. He specifically asks if it was Merle who gave the order. However, instead of cooperating, the suspect responds with insults directed against Mike’s family, crossing a line that ignites Mike’s rage. Mike loses his cool and pushes him hard. The force of the push propels the man backwards, causing him to fall over the terrace railing.

Mike confronts Merle again. Mike informs him that he will be returning to general population the next day. In the last scene, Merle is seen making a phone call to Konstantin.

Konstantin expresses confidence in their partnership, suggesting that together they can achieve significant goals. This cryptic exchange suggests a deeper connection between Merle and Konstantin, raising questions about their motives and plans in Kingstown.

One way they could harm people is by flooding the streets of Kingstown with drugs, leading to increased addiction, crime and violence in the community.

With Merle and Konstantin posing a significant threat both inside and outside the prison, Mike may find it increasingly difficult to navigate the complex web of conflicts and threats facing him.
