Other Information:

        -- SPOILER WARNING --        


The chapter opens with the camera panning over a burning kitchen and canteen after which the CEO calls the player to tell them to call emergency services and stop the fire.

Halfway through putting out the fire, Don Palermo emerges from the burning kitchen severely injured and is rushed to the infirmary. Sonny Palermo and Nico Tamoretti both visit him and Don asks which of them started the fire. They both deny it and Don threatens to kill whichever of the two started the fire. Outside the infirmary, Sonny and Nico threaten each other.

It is later revealed that Don had another son, Anthony Palermo, who was Susan's lover from Death Row. Further investigations after Anthony's murder led to the discovery of Don's narcotic's dealings, leading to the Palermo family's arrest.

Sonny Palermo later finds Nico alone in the showers, and Nico reveals he started the fire, but didn't intend to harm Don, but rather Sonny. Sonny threatens Nico with a knife, intending to murder him, but Nico had a lookout named Franky which strangles Sonny with piano wire. Sonny still manages to stab Nico and Franky before he dies leading to both Sonny and Franky's death.

Vitalia Palermo, Don's daughter and wife of Nico, visits Nico in the infirmary and divorces Nico, intending to revive the Palermo family's business.
