“Mayor of Kingstown” Season 3 Episode 6 begins with the tragic death of Rhonda (Nona Parker Johnson), who is shot outside her beauty salon.

Ian Ferguson (Hugh Dillon) and Mike arrive at the scene to assess the situation, suspecting that the Russians may be behind the attack, especially since Rhonda was Bunny Washington’s (Tobi Bamtefa) cousin.

They fear that Bunny might retaliate, which could escalate violence in Kingstown. Later, Mike calls Kareem Moore (Michael Beach), the temporary Warden of the Kingstown Prison, and asks him to put Merle Callahan (Richard Brake) in a red tape because he knows that he is collaborating with Russian gangster Konstantin, as seen in Episode 5.

Mike suggests raiding Konstantin’s place to collect evidence of drug trafficking and facilitate his arrest and imprisonment. Mike calls Iris (Emma Laird) ahead of time to warn her to flee, but against his advice, she stays put. During the attack, both Iris and Konstantin are arrested.

During the interrogation, Ian warns Konstantin that he knows about the murder of Tatiana (Gratiela Brancusi) and the disposal of her body. He reveals that Tatiana’s baby survived the ordeal.

Konstantin denies any involvement and claims that they cannot arrest him because nothing incriminating was found at his location. Despite the officers’ claims of discovering drug residue during the raid, Konstantin maintains his innocence, insisting that he has no connection to the illegal activities.

Without substantial evidence, the officers cannot detain him for more than an hour under legal limits. As the episode unfolds, when Mike questions Iris about why she didn’t run away, she elaborates that taking a lunch break could have raised suspicions with Konstantin.

She feared that any attempt to escape might alert him to her involvement or intentions, putting her safety at risk.

On the other hand, Tracy (Nishi Munshi) discovers that a female prisoner named Sheri Maxwell in the women’s prison facility has given birth to a baby. She was incarcerated in the facility for three years, prompting Tracy to question how Sheri became pregnant during her time there. Tracy suspects that Sheri was raped inside the prison by the staff.

In the end, Mike visits Merle to warn him about Konstantin’s possible betrayal. However, Merle appears confident and unconcerned about any threats from Konstantin.

It seems likely that in “Mayor of Kingstown” Season 3, Episode 7, Bunny will strike back against Konstantin because he suspects that his men may have been responsible for Rhonda’s death.

Bunny and Mike are able to work together to deal with this issue and gather evidence of Konstantin’s illegal activities. Ian and Kareem would also lend their support, driven by the devastating impact of drug addiction on the residents of Kingstown.

Their involvement could focus on exploiting their respective positions and resources to combat the drug epidemic and find evidence against Konstantin.

It seems likely that in Episode 7 of “Mayor of Kingstown” Season 3, Konstantin will discover Iris’ betrayal, leading to a dangerous escalation. He can also try to kill Iris, using tactics similar to those used in Tatiana’s case.

However, Mike would step in to protect her, just like he did before. Despite this rescue, Konstantin and Merle are able to escalate their efforts to harm him in retaliation.
