By killing Bugsy, however, Joe has ignited a mob war between Siegel’s second-in-command, hotheaded Mickey Cohen (Jeremy Luke), and rival gangster Jack Dragna (Paul Ben-Victor).
“You just created a power vacuum,” Ned cautioned his war buddy. “Good old Joe. Always putting out the fire with gasoline.”
With the exception of Ned, no one else knows who killed Bugsy. But that will change if Lansky has his way. In embracing Cohen as the new L.A. crime boss, Lansky ordered him to discover who shot Bugsy and why.
“You are going to cut us the pound of flesh we’re owed,” Lansky said ominously.
With Bugsy dead, many questions remain.
Will Capt. William Parker (Neal McDonough) and Mayor Fletcher Bowron (Gregory Itzin) reform the corrupt LAPD? Will Cohen or Dragna prevail in the mob war? And will Joe and Jasmine rekindle their troubled relationship?
We’ll likely find out if “Mob City” returns for Season 2.
