Plot

On a dark stormy night, Chief Flanagan ordered the player to investigate with Spencer the Irish corner of the district to find out more about the vandal that spray painted a French flag. When they got to the Irish street, they found the body of bartender Aengus O'Reilly, beaten bloody and left for dead on his pub steps. They then found clues to suspect the Irish community leader Declan Donovan before they found clues to suspect college student Joan Goodwin and her engaged wife Ash Goodwin. They then learned from April that the victim was suppoused to attend an Irish parade to promote his pub and beer distillery.

At the local Irish parade, they found clues to suspect an Irish born local newspaper boy named Seamus O'Connell and the Enforcers' Irish police sketch artist Ryan O'Malley in the murder. Soon after, they learned that the Goodwin couple had a feud with the victim over a past offense the victim had done. Later, they learned that the Irish parade were to continue, potentially destroying evidence. Soon after they stopped the parade from continuing, they found enough evidence and motives to arrest Seamus for the crime.

Seamus initially insisted innocence but then snapped. He confessed that he had gambling debts and stole Aengus' money but insisted that what Aengus did next was evil. Seamus recounted how Aengus demanded his money back, but Seamus told him it would be a while before he'd have enough. As a threat to Seamus, Aengus attacked Seamus' sister and threatened to finish the job if he didn't get his money. Infuriated, Seamus realized he had to protect his family and equipped himself with the brass knuckles, following Aengus under the cover of night. When his back was turned, Seamus landed a hit on Aengus' temple before beating him to death, dumping his body on the street. In court, Seamus asked Judge South what he'd do to protect his family, prompting Damien to sentence Seamus to seventeen years in prison.

Post-trial, April requested the player and Emilio’s help. April confessed that following Leo’s purchase of a restaurant for her, she wanted to take their relationship further and ask him to move in with her, but had lost the key mould along the street. After finding the mould and having Emilio fashion a set of keys for Leo, April and the player organised an event at the parade as a grand gesture before inviting Leo out. April then asked him to move in with her, to which Leo accepted cheerfully and gave her a kiss.

Meanwhile, the player accompanied Dustin in asking his old friend, Declan, about the vandalism of the French flag in the town square. Declan insisted that he had no idea about it and told them they were free to search his pub. After finding a threatening letter addressed to the French, allegedly from Declan, they sent it to Valentina for analysis. A stumped Valentina confessed, however, that the handwriting didn’t match Declan’s meaning somebody else wrote the threats. They then spoke to Declan again about the threat, who swore that he had never seen it before in his life.

Back in the precinct, the team discussed the findings. Disturbed the threats, they realised that someone could be riling the communities against each other. Knowing what uproar a war between the communities could bring, they decided to look into the possibility of a mastermind by heading to the streets of the Greek quarter of Green Haven.
