On the pier, Cyrus meets with Jason, who he sees as in charge of Sonny’s business now that Sonny’s gone and hopes Jason will be more reasonable.

Jason pulls his own gun, and Brando appears aiming one at Jason. Carly then struts into the confrontation with some of Sonny’s armed men, and Cyrus is forced to drop his gun along with Brando.
