KINGSTOWN, MICHIGAN: “Mayor of Kingstown” Season 3 proved to be intense as Mayor Mike McLusky (Jeremy Renner) faces daunting challenges amid Merle Callahan’s (Richard Brake) reign of terror, increasing the danger in Kingstown.

Merle, the leader of the Aryan Brotherhood, has been a dangerous presence since his introduction in “Mayor of Kingstown” Season 3.

His character quickly established himself as an imposing and menacing presence, disrupting the delicate balance of power in Kingstown.

In the first episode, he quickly demonstrated his influence by securing a transfer from Millhaven to Anchor Bay prison within hours.

This impressive achievement showed his influence and efficiency, setting him apart from any other Aryan Brotherhood leader who previously handled the organization’s affairs in Kingstown.

“Mayor of Kingstown” Season 3 Episode 6 proves that Merle is a dangerous force to watch out for.

Recently, Merle secured transfer to the general population (gen pop), showing his immense power.

Once integrated into the general prison population, Merle began operating his drug business with Konstantin (Yorick van Wageningen) with remarkable efficiency.

This ability to maintain and expand his operations, even while imprisoned, highlights Merle’s impressive presence. His actions within the prison walls reveal a level of resourcefulness and influence that suggests he is unstoppable.

In “Mayor of Kingstown” Season 3 Episode 6, viewers experience the full extent of Merle’s power. In Episode 5, Mike discovers that Merle and Konstantin collaborated to deliver drugs in Kingstown.

Later in Episode 6, Mike pressures Carney (Lane Garrison), a prison guard, to find out how Merle managed to do his drug dealing, especially given his current incarceration.

Carney carefully searches every nook and cranny, determined to uncover contraband and expose the drug trade between Konstantin and the Aryan Brotherhood.

However, his investigation meets local opposition when he faces a violent attack by prison officers aligned with Merle.

They must be affiliated with the Aryan Brotherhood, as they attacked a prison guard inside the facility. This incident shows the extent to which Merle has power even inside the prison.

Even within the confines of the prison, he continues to control his drug trade with Konstantin and is prepared to resort to violence against anyone who tries to interfere.

Merle not only has his AB members backing him up but also has COs on his side, enabling the Aryan Brotherhood and Russians to facilitate drug trafficking more effectively.

In “Mayor of Kingstown,” gang-affiliated prison officers are not unknown. In Season 2, Bunny was attacked by Aryan Brotherhood officers, overpowering Carney, who was with him at the time.

However, in “Mayor of Kingstown” Season 3, Episode 6, viewers witnessed prison officers for the first time willing to physically attack their fellow prison guard for Merle.

Following the death of Rhonda (Nona Parker Johnson) in Episode 6, Mike asks Kareem Moore (Michael Beach), warden, to transfer Merle from the general population to administrative segregation (ad seg). This decision is intended to isolate Merle and tighten security measures around him.

This action must have angered Merle, because previously he had asked Mike to transfer him to genpop, and Mike’s decision to move him to ad seg could be seen as a betrayal.

Russian mobster Konstantin played a significant role in raising Merle’s power by inviting him to collaborate.

The actions of Konstantin and Merle could significantly exacerbate drug addiction in Kingstown and intensify the challenges faced by Mike, who is trying to restore balance.

Kingstown has already been ravaged by drug-related deaths. With each loss, the sense of urgency grows for Mike.
