A message on Soaked Rat’s computer suggests that the mafia is planning to fix the loose ends they missed at the Anchovy Festival, where Suzano will be.

Serrote is present at the festival too. He kidnaps Suzano and takes him to his hideout. Mantovani comes to Suzano’s rescue. Though they fail to capture Serrote, they end up discovering the slot machines Serrote has been hiding.

Serrote’s true motives

Serrote visits Suzano in secret to tell him about his true intentions. It turns out that Serrote isn’t working for the Slot Machine Mafia; he is working against them.

After getting out of jail, Serrote failed to find help anywhere. The only open door for him was a little work for the mafia. However, they took everything from him and left him in the gutter.

Serrote resorted to stealing the mafia’s slot machines to exact revenge. Serrote stole those machines and hid them. He intended to return them to the mafia if they paid what they owed.

The mafia isn’t a fan of Serrote’s idea. They are now hunting Serrote down, and hence, Serrote has been trying to get hold of Suzano. In the end, Serrote is caught by the mafia and brought to the 8th precinct, where the mafia takes everyone hostage.

Suzano manages to fool and trap all the mafia members. Once the members of the Slot Machine Mafia are arrested, Serrote is put under arrest too. He is afraid that the mafia will kill him inside, but Mantovani assures him that they will make sure he is safe.
