  • Brother Rivalry.

    So famous Boxer Johnny D'Amato is beaten to death at a festival, word on the street says Johnny threw his last fight. Al tells Jay to put a list together of all the people that would have been hurt by him throwing the fight. Jay points out Audre Kade, a rapper, that manages Johnny. Eliot introduces Al to "AK" and says he's donated $100k to finding Johnny's killer and AK had been managing Johnny for two years and had been a fan for even longer. Jay points Al and Carrie into the direction of Johnny's trainer Casey McGraw, knowing he would be really mad if he took a dive, Casey says whoever killed Johnny killed him because he was his best and says there is no way Johnny threw the fight. Jay finds out that Johnny had some unusual connections with the Albanian mob and he filed restraining orders against some members of the Dervishi family. The only interesting thing about this is that AK is having an affair with Magi Dervishi, but when Al and Carrie pay them a visit, Bobby (Johnny's older brother) shows up and wants revenge. Later Murray finds Casey dead, with a gunshot wound in his chest. Bobby's alibi starts falling apart and Carrie puts it together, that it was Bobby leaving the murder scene, they pick up Bobby and he confesses to killing his brother. (WHY) Money, he begged him to keep helping him but he said no. Bobby said, he went to the festival to talk to him but he wouldn't listen, so he hit him and being his brother Johnny wouldn't fight back. Bobby also confesses that he killed Casey because he wanted to train Johnny since they were kids, Johnny was the favorite. Fantastic Episode.moreless
