Whilst Irish gangs fight each other in Birmingham Arthur is threatened by the mother of the boy he killed in the boxing match and who is not appeased by promises of money. Thomas and his gang go to London to join up with Solomons, who makes it clear that he is the boss. Sabini decides to send Thomas a message and has his men kill the Digbeth Kid, one of the Shelby gang, for which Thomas swears revenge. He decides to buy a race horse, thus giving him a credible reason to infiltrate the race courses dominated by Sabini's men and at an auction meets well-to-do trainer May Carleton. Returning home he and his gang are ambushed but they kill the assailants. Michael, who has watched it all calmly, makes it clear that he wants to stay with his new family.
