    Carl uses his high media profile to accuse Detective Steve Owen of corruption. When Graham 'Munster' Kinniburgh is gunned down, Mick Gatto tries to convince Carl Williams to end the gangland war. Benji Veniamin agrees to kill his former mentor Mick Gatto, but it's Gatto who lives to tell the tale. Carl and Roberta are rocked by the death of their closest friend. Is this the beginning of the end for Carl?

    This is the second time posted looks like someone deleted the other one.

    Yes, Gatto shot Benji when they were alone in a back room at La Porcella, we obviously don't have Benji's side of the story so it was not shown in a linear fashion, Gatto claims Benji pulled a gun on him, he grabbed his arm, the gun went off and shot him (multiple times!!!).

    Issa.

    Poor us. He was hot.

    It's funny how we can have sympathy for a cold-blooded killer. The truth is that he deserved what he got. He was a back-stabbing, murdering double-crosser. But I really liked him.

    Oh Damian Walshe-Howling is gorgeous. I new he was from other Aussie dramas and didnt think much of him then, but now he's so sexy especially with the shaved head and tatts.

    I cant believe that he is older than me.

    I've never noticed him before but I did a bit of research on him lately. He looks much better now with the shaved head and tatts and it's funny that I say that because I usually prefer clean cut men.

    I doubt he's older than me.

    I didnt think that Benji ever carried a gun around on him especially that the cops were hasseling him so much recently. Benji would have never pulled the gun on Mick, he was like a father figure to him.

    If I remember correctly there was alot of debate about if the draw string on Benji's tracksuit pants was tied up or not, as if they were not with a gun in his pocket his pants would have been on the floor! I think this was not investigated during the autopsy.
