What to Know Before Watching Mayor of Kingstown Season 1 Episode 4
The previous installment in Season 1 of Mayor of Kingstown showed Mike making efforts to keep unbroken the thin film of peace during an event of a horrific mishap. Quite expectedly, Mike couldn’t do so, which would now lead to major consequences in the next episode of Mayor of Kingstown season 1. This is what has happened so far from the last episode, “Simply Murder”.
Meth abuser Kenny unintentionally and accidentally caused the deaths of his former spouse and young son. When he was cooking his meth in the trailer, the mother and son duo got burned to death. Soon, with the incident in the news, each and every person from law enforcement started for Kingstown to get justice to the dead mother-son duo.
The town’s criminals had already begun awaiting the death of Kenny and were ready to conjoin to make it all happen. However, Mike noticed the daftness of this all. He wondered if, in any case, an already imprisoned convict would kill Kenny as an obligation for the police, then the police department could get the town criminals to work for them.
With no other sensible option left, Mike convinced Kenny to surrender himself, for he would be provided protection in custody and would be eventually sentenced after proper trial and procedure. Disappointingly, after Kenny’s surrender, he wasn’t taken to protective custody but to the main prison, where he was killed in the presence of all guards and prisoners.
