Mayor of Kingstown (Season 2), Episode 9 Recap

Episode 9: Peace in the Valley

At the end of episode 8, Milo Sunter (Aidan Gillen) comes to meet Mike McLusky (Jeremy Renner) in person. Milo says that Mike was looking for him all this time. Now he decides to make a deal with Mike. He notes that he has prolonged his stay in Kingstown because he wants to get hold of his bonds. Since he knows that they are in police custody, he asks Mike to get hold of them for him. In exchange, he assures to relieve Iris from his custody. Knowing Mike’s emotional involvement in her safety, he proposes this deal. Mike accepts it.




Meanwhile, Bunny (Tobi Bamtefa) decides to exercise his freedom now that he is outside the prison. He enters a gun store right before its opening time and portrays himself as a genuine customer. Then suddenly, his gang breaks into the store with their car and destroys it. They steal all the armory from this store and run away.

On the other hand, Mike returns to his office after his talk with Milo. He sees Kyle (Taylor Handley) and apologizes for being AWOL. Then he shares the news that he met Milo. He discusses the deal he accepted and sees getting rid of Milo’s terrifying presence as a good thing. While Mike decides to take care of Bunny’s matter, Kyle tells him that he is out of prison.




So, Mike decides to go meet Bunny to know his current status. On his way, he has a word with Mariam (Dianne Wiest), who reminds him about Jacob’s case. Jacob was moved from his juvenile facility to a normal prison (Anchor Bay) before the promised date. She worries for his safety considering his young age. Since Mike had already delayed working on it, he called Kareem (Michael Beach) to take care of this young kid from getting tortured. Once Kareem learns that Mariam wants this favor, he starts working on it.

Right after, Mike gets a call from Ian (Hugh Dillon) asking him to meet urgently. By then, Mike had gotten tired of Ian looking at anything and everything as a matter that he needed to take an urgent look at. Still, he visits the place Ian asks him to. He learns that there has been a robbery in the gun shop by Bunny. Ian wants him to take care of his ‘friend’ whose actions are getting out of hand. That is when Mike also learns that the case against Robert (Hamish Allan-Headley) has been pulled back. He gets surprised at how Morrissey decided to back away from his complaint.




Later, Mike meets Bunny and sees him playing with a drone. He sees that Bunny has found a new toy to keep his menace intact. However, he warns Bunny about the negative repercussions of his actions. Bunny, however, is more concerned with establishing his terrorizing presence as a king of Kingstown. So, even though he thanks Mike for getting him out, he does not pay heed to Mike’s warning.

Mike then goes to meet Evelyn (Necar Zadegan). He apologizes for disappearing for a day and then thanks her for taking care of Bunny’s and Robert’s case. She clears his doubt saying that she solved neither issue. Instead, she is done with helping him provide support to criminals. During their conversation, Mike learns that Morrissey did not just pull the case back, but he is also dead.

Meanwhile, in Anchor Bay, young Jacob struggles to maintain his peace of mind among the older prisoners. He loads a truck along with other inmates. Once the truck starts moving, he commits suicide by crushing his face under its wheel. So with his death, Kingstown witnesses yet another gruesome murder due to its inability to control the terrifying hold of criminality.




Kyle, meanwhile, needs to confront his personal war. After constantly trying to seek his presence in her life, Tracy (Nishi Munshi) gets so tired of her mundane life that she decides to distance herself from Kyle. She comes to his office and tells him that she is going to her father’s place. While she also invites him, he does not want to leave his godforsaken town. Later, on a call with Mike, Kyle informs him about Jacob’s death.

Mike goes back home to meet Mariam in person to tell her about it. While she was cooking their dinner, she lost her appetite due to this terrible news. Afterward, Mike drives back to his office, where suddenly, in the middle of the night, he gets a call. Iris (Emma Laird) speaks from the other side. He continues to ask her things out of concern. But she is more concerned with asking him to meet in person. Milo is right by her side when she speaks with Mike with the loudspeaker on. So Mike seems to be getting caught in a trap due to his gullibility for Iris’ safety.




The next day, Mike goes to meet Ian and Stevie (Derek Webster). Ian tells him again to talk some sense in Bunny and to make him return the guns if he does not want any action taken against him. However, Morissey’s sudden death takes up most of Mike’s mind. Once Robert arrives, Mike questions him whether he killed Morrissey. Robert considers this question disrespectful and denies the allegation. Meanwhile, Ian remains silent about his role in Morissey’s death during this period.

After speaking with the officers, Mike goes to meet Bunny to tell him that he must return all the guns since ATF is coming to investigate this case. Mike wants Bunny to return the guns without leaving any traces or fingerprints that can put suspicion on him.




After making this request, Mike apologizes for keeping Bunny in prison for much longer than promised. He regrets his past decisions. Bunny tells him to fulfill his end of the deal in exchange for returning the guns. Mike denies helping in that regard but understands its repercussions. On his way out, he tries to get in touch with Robert and ends up leaving a voicemail.

Joseph the Russian (George Tchrotov) enters Iris’s room and tells her that he has bought her for the next 3 hours. She continues to show him no respect, hurting his ego, especially since he has paid for her time. As a result, he attacks her and throws her from one side of the room to the other as if she is an object. She gets enraged by this treatment and starts stabbing him repeatedly with a piece of broken glass. She stops only when he is unconscious.




Meanwhile, Mike keeps trying to reach Robert throughout the day but cannot find him anyhow. He also calls Kyle to ask whether he knows about it. But Kyle does not answer his call either. So, he goes to their regular bar to ask Ian, Kyle, and Stevie about it. They take the matter lightly, but Mike does not. He alerts them about the danger to Robert’s life and, on his drive, keeps reaching Robert on a call.

Robert eventually picks up Mike’s call. But by that time, he already starts getting attacked by some goons on motorbikes. He luckily manages to tell Mike about his location. So, Mike finds him, but only when he gets brutally attacked by those goons. The police cars also arrive at the location. But it seems like it is already too late to save him.
