Episode Summary

EDIT
As the campaigns for the Mayoral election begin, Mayor Pugen is involved in a serious car accident: while eating an egg salad sandwich behind the wheel, he swerves and hits a tree and has to be lifted out of the wreckage with a crane. Wambaugh, Pugen's opponent, turns his campaign into a circus with marching bands and fake assassination attempts. As the campaign deteriorates into a petty dirty tricks battle, Jimmy is asked by the church to consider running against them. He considers it, but when Wambaugh produces a huge photo of Pugen being lifted out of the wreckage during a public meeting, he instead takes the opportunity to publicly berate them both for their antics and warns the residents their town is going to hell. In the aftermath of the car accident, Kenny discovers incriminating photographs in the back of Pugen's car. It leads them to dodgy dealings involving shady local businessman Pauly Thigpen. When Thigpen has Harold beaten up to keep him quiet, Kenny retaliates by doing the same to Thigpen and gets suspended over it.moreless
