Savino storms into Mayor Bennett's office, who's there with D.A. Reynolds and ADA O'Connell. But Savino doesn't mind the audience, and he lays into Bennett with the fury of a man finding out his election donation hasn't earned him the right to operate with impunity. "I serve at the pleasure of the people of Las Vegas. And a lot of those people aren't too pleased with the way you and your kind conduct business around here," says Bennett. Savino takes offence at the reference to his "kind," ("You mean honest, taxpaying citizens?" he says) and then growls Bennett is going to regret this. O'Connell reminds him that threatening the dude is a felony, so Savino puts on his hat and heads for the door. "Someday, Bennett, when you're looking back and wondering where it all went wrong, it was right here, right now," he says.
Savino tells ... Beansy(? I think? I'm having trouble keeping track of the mob guys) that they gotta make sure the mayoral election challenger, a schlub named George Grady, contends really well really quickly. Also, Borelli's got Sullivan the forger in the bathroom. Sullivan claims not to know anything about the chips, and the repeated dunkings in the toilet don't shake him off his story.
Meanwhile, Jimmy Wisniewski -- a.k.a. "Jimmy the Pollack" -- has been brought into the station, where he reminds the genius brothers that dead people can't pay their debts. Plus, Saffran didn't owe him any money any more; Saffran paid it off in full the week before.
I'm not sure what's to stop this bookie from making up that story to throw off his motive angle, but the Lamb brothers accept his story. Also, Jack has found a strange monthly expense for a property rental.
Savino meets with mayoral challenger George Grady, played by Didn't You Used To Be Gil Bellows in a loud jacket and receding hairline. Savino figures any other broke token challenger to an incumbent would be down twenty or thirty points, but Grady's only eight back of Bennett. Grady says it's because of Bennett's cronyism. Savino says the upcoming debate is crucial because more voters will see him there than anyone else. "Bennett's part of the past of this town. You want to be part of its future, you need me," says Savino, and a suddenly savvy Grady says, "And you need me." Savino nods, looking almost impressed at Grady's mercenary style.
