Lost in the FloodDenny is collecting protection money for Murdoch when he strays into Lafayette territory. In the insuing fight, the Lafayette tete, Edie, is killed, and her brother Darwin swears revenge. He recruits Faden, a recently released jailbird with a grudge against Murdoch.
In the meantime, Rafe -- tete of Asbury Park, where the Grill is located, and loosely allied with Murdoch -- is experiencing some serious women trouble, in the sense of trying to date two. His girlfriend Ellen ejects the interloper Corinne spectacularly enough to attract Darwin's attention. Ellen is kidnapped, and Rafe finds himself blackmailed into allowing Darwin to ambush Murdoch coming out of the Grill. The ambush, however, goes poorly, and the three sides enter a state of open warfare -- with Ellen, Lena, and Corinne caught in the middle.
