Following the news that Rosetta and Keverlyn was last seen at the clocktower who was famous for the drug activity rumors, Alfonso an the player met up with Marcus who promised that will be their shield is the cops starts to interrogate them about their appearance. After the air was clean, Marcus proceed a duo inside the clocktower who Alfonso quickly started to scan and look around to find anyone. The player joined him while Marcus kept the guard in case that someone of the detectives show up. A little later they went up the stairs where on the old clock gears a duo noticed a familiar black dress that belonged to Viviana Santana, Rosetta's childhood friend, overdosed. That made Alfonso to stop blinking and telling the player to pray that Rosetta didn't found her body or that will unleash the hidden monster in her.

After the chock, Marcus joined a duo and said that his colleagues surrounded the place and that he came with the plan that he will took the player as his "recruit" due to the circumstances and told Alfonso that he will make sure the body reach Lawrence. After that deal Marcus and the player with Alfonso's started the investigation where they found Rosetta, more angry then ever who swore on the revenge and personally dismember the one who killed her childhood friend. Alfonso then said that he will took her away and try to calm her down. They nodded and continued to investigate deeper and found reasons to suspect already known drug dealer Zain Gallagher and a police officer Emmett Hefferson. Later by Camilla they discovered that a lawyer Malcolm Fraser has been seen to talk with the victim prior to hear death. After Lawrence's autopsy he revealed that the victim was overdosed by various drugs, mainly sedatives and heroin. However he also concluded that the killer has a medical knowledge needed to make this balance to not mess up the formula.

A little bit later, Marcus took the player to the police station to recap the case before the sirens started as one of the officer said that they found Keverlyn. Marcus and the player, following the act they played, decided to follow the officers towards the nearby barn all in hope to be fist to find Keverlyn. They then searched around where they eventually found Keverlyn and decided to speak to her about what happened but she just replied that she doesn't remember anything except that she woke up here. The team then continued to dig into the investigation and eventually discover that Emmett was bribed by Viviana who later blackmailed him to do some illegal work for her but also found reasons to suspect a dog walker and Mancio's granddaughter Matilda Valentine. They also discovered that Viviana attempted to make alliance with Zain and later backstab him but also the love letters meant for Rosetta. Rosetta then confessed that Viviana wasn't just her childhood friend but also a girlfriend that she dates for over 5 years that she wanted to propose once The Family return her monopoly over drug supplies in the district.

After everything that they discovered they decided to go to Giuseppe and give him the update before they were approached by Camilla who said that she found why the victim has been in the clocktower. Camilla then revealed how she found from her clients and her ex-boyfriend that Viviana worked as a double agent for multiple mafia families which and that she often hooked up with the at the clocktower. After hearing that the team returned to the scene of murder where they discovered threats from Matilda who explained that she found about Viviana's frauds and wanted to punish her but that she didn't wanted blood on her hands. The team then also discovered Keverlyn had argument with the victim about Rosetta before discovering that Malcolm followed Viviana around as he suspects that she might've been enemies agent and selling sensitive information due to her close relationship with Rosetta.

After everything the team found was finally analyzed and with all the evidence, a corrupted cop and the player were ready to arrest Keverlyn. In chock and disbelief, Marcus angrily asked Keverlyn to explain herself, moving his hand towards the gun. With a heavy sigh she said that she needed to do it to save the Family, saying how there was no other way. Marcus told her to explain further on what she said that she worked as a double agent. She continued, explaining how she was sent by Mancio months ago to gain information about the Calconi family and destroy then from the inside as per his request. She said how she on the beginning focused on the task, doing her maid duties and showing of her gangster skills to gain trust of the family and even faking the backstory to be more closer to the Family but by the time went on she saw how the Family despise the reputation of the cruel murderers actually care for one another and protect each other at any way with all feelings and that she wanted to be part of it, releasing her grip she had with Tortorelli Family and destroying her reports before sending fake ones to Mancio but then she realized that sh wasn't the only spy. The moment Viviana became so closer to Rosetta to the point of becoming her girlfriend before the player arrival signaled a red flag with her and decided to do side-spy job and stalk Viviana where she soon enough overheard her conversations with Mancio and other Tortorelli members, speaking about demolishing the relationships between members of the Calconi Family and discovering her as the traitor, but she didn't said a word, continuing to pile up the evidence for the report. She stealth followed her and took images that she showed right to the player as a proof of the truth and loyalty but that everything went down a few days before as her secrets blueprints and plans of the Calconi's new drug location got stolen by Viviana and Zain, splitting the "treasure" and running away on their respective way. Knowing that she could've not just come to Giuseppe like that as she would look like a traitor she worked alone to track Viviana and succeed to find her temporary location. As she always wore a syringe with the dangerous drug mixture she led her way towards the location - the clocktower. As she arrived she noticed her next to the drug packages with a smirk waiting for her accomplices to comes Using her sneak knowledge she dragged to the behind her when she in the matter of second drugged her, leaving her to die as the traitor she was. As Marcus asked her about the drug she said that she didn't had time so she hid it underneath her body and rushed away, wanting to confess everything but on the way back something hit her and she woke up next day at the barn where the team found her.

Marcus then said how he is touched by the motive but that the main word and a life of her in now in Giuseppe's hands before cuffing her hands and returning to the mansion. Inside the mansion, in Giuseppe's office he already waited alongside the other members as Alfonso tightly held her mega angry daughter who almost gripped of his arms upon seeing her girlfriend's killer. With now shaking voice, knowing that she could've bee dead every second repeated the motive, saying that Viviana never truly loved Rosetta and just played with her heart to come to her and destroy the Family. With a deadly glare Giuseppe looked towards Keverlyn who's eyes already started to wet. He said that her actions were unthinkable and could've ended badly but he also said that he never saw anyone so determined and clever, showing his admiration towards the gothic maid and took off his hat, expressing, for the first time, real thankfulness because she saved the Family and their monopoly over the drugs. She truthfully smiled at her, upgrading her rank from associate to the rank of soldier, allowing her more permissions in the family. Now surprised, Keverlyn thanked her boss, saying that she really meant what she said and that she will do everything to keep the family safe and outsider spies free.

Couple of hours later, as the Family gained back the drugs that their rivals found they still needed to deal for the second part and take it back before officially destroying Tortorelli's monopoly. At the same time, Alfonso ran to the player saying that Rosetta ran away, not planning to return. Giuseppe then told Alfonso to wait for the player and speak with him about Rosetta before saying that the player and Diocleziano will go in hunt for the second drug supply and take it away from Mancio's dirty hands. The player suggested that they should speak to Zain as Rosetta already scared him enough and that now he might crack. A crime duo visited his house but seeing that no one opens they broke inside where they found Zain in the curtain of the cigarette smoke watching the latest news and the destruction of drug cartels. Going from behind, Diocleziano grabbed his shoulders and pulled him behind on the floor. Zain chuckled ad asked why is entire family so violent on what Diocleziano step on his leg, saying that is better if he shut up and confess where is the drug if we would like to have both legs. Zain chuckled again, saying that the lady couldn't make him speak so the newbie brought a man on what Diocleziano pulled his collar and his body up, asking again with the shunting voice before putting him down on what Zain then said that the family Tortorelli hid the drugs in the barn on the outskirt of town. A duo went there and swapped the place fully, being able to only obtain a weird faded form. After they revealed the smudged content they saw that it was a police warrant for seizing the supplies, but also that the form was signed by Emmett. Knowing that they can't just walk into the station asking for supplies they decided to ask Malcolm if he could help. Malcolm said that he could help with it but that they would need to bring him a police seal for the legitimacy and that no any seal but Emmett's for forgery to be fully accepted. They nodded and returned to the police station rooftop where they knew that Emmett spend most of time on. After the found a shoulder bag and a seal inside they took it to the lab where after the forgery was over the player (in disguise of the FBI agent) and Malcolm together with Marcus went to the police station where they approached Emmett and showed the forged form about the re-seizing the drug supplies and taking them to be destroyed. Emmett said how he don't remember singing anything but then he looked towards the player and said that if FBI is involved then he should respect the decision and gave the team access t the supplies that they then took away.

In the meantime the player approached Alfonso who said that he is very worried for Rosetta as she ran away from the mansion and while he tried to stop he she said that she doesn't need anyone anymore as he whole life was a big lie before he saw her running to wards the murder scene. The player and Alfonso then went back to the clocktower where inside they discovered a torn pieces and restored it full piece. A duo then saw that the paper sheet was actually a song with a weird and heavy lyrics that they sent to Ludovica. Ludovica then revealed that the song is part of the play who was turned into a novel called "Eric & Lucy" by a novelist Gray Alley. The team then asked her to track his hone so they could find his location faster on what she said that she already did revealing that he is currently in the saloon that was formerly owned by Carolyn Howard. Inside the saloon a duo approached Gray and asked him if he saw Rosetta. He confirmed that e saw her as she was his big fan and wanted a signature on her novel before saying that he chatted a bit with her and discovered that she was emotionally shattered and broken , saying how her entire life was a lie and the love of her life a betrayal before hinting something the cliff. Gray then said how he tried to stop her but that Rosetta pulled her run and through he angry tears said that he made one more steps his brain will next meal for crows. They thanked him quickly rushed to the cliff where they found Rosetta watching the flashy Lacoste Valley. She heard the footsteps and started to talk how she Viviana always talked that one day they will organize a big heist on the biggest jewelry store in Crimestone "Diamond Mercato" but that now she realized how stupid she was to believe that they ever had something in common. Alfonso, remembering her late fiancee and Rosetta's mother, and slowly approaches taking her hand and promising that everything will be fine. A caring smile formed on his face as he told his daughter that there will be new romances and that she not be so hard on herself and that he understands if she wants to be sad, angry or aloe but that she shouldn't blame herself.

After a while, they returned to the mansion where Lawrence rushed and hugged her tightly, saying that he will always be there for her if she needs to talk. Giuseppe then raised his glass of whiskey and said that now when all drug supplies are again on one place and Tortorellis out of the drug monopoly they are free to celebrate. Everyone clapped and got closer to get drinks before Camilla broke the party saying that someone broke in Ludovica's hacking room. Alfonso put his drink down and told the player that they need to insect that straight away. After they searched Ludovica's room they were only able to find a locked cryptex that the player unlocked and inside found the letter that Alfonso took and started to read. The context on the letter said that the war is far from over that if Tortorelli family can't control dug monopoly they will weak the family the kidnapping the weakest link of all and make money out of her and that she will be used a good example for the kidnapping ring in Ratcrown Bridge as the letter was signed by the Black Crow himself . Alfonso gulped before making the furious expression, knowing exactly what does that mean as Estella has her own kidnapping ring and that thy plan to user her as the auction jewelry and get her to the highest bidder who will do something very bad to her. They then informed Giuseppe about all who furiously said that Mancio will pay for everything he did and told the player and Alfonso to go to the TV station of the Ratcrown Bridge as they are heavily influenced by Tortorelli family and that many think that they help hostages there. With no hesitation the player and Alfonso go the car keys and made their way to save Ludovica.
