  • Continuing form the last episode king Silas is at odds with both his son Jack and ally David. Silas takes advice from the former King/Tyrant he has locked up, that seems to be his only friend these days directs Silas to use force in this matter.

    This is by far the best episodes of Season 1, having a lot of drama and different locations it expands on the characters persona's and finally puts William (Silas's brother in law) plan to topple the king into affect. Silas shows everyone that he is still king and does not mind getting his hands a little dirty when it comes to his Kingdom. David is scheduled to be terminated the same moment the ceremony of the handing over of Port Prosperity is complete. Jack is forced to kiss the ground Silas walks on for forgiveness. Silas is shoot during the ceremony giving Jack the Throne. David being saved by Jack's order before his execution is unaware what is going on. Jack thinks he is in power until the meeting where William tells him he is in control and Jack is merely a puppet on the throne. During the Meeting they find out Silas is not dead and shall rise again. David manages to escape and go to the Kings side shown his loyalty once again.
