Ciro realizes Imma had sent him away to pave her own road to power. Disapproving of the way she runs business, he sets up his own operation, to demean Imma's role within the clan. But Imma has learned quite well how to play the power-game herself.
Gomorra is set in the suburbs of Naples, focusing on organised crime and the relationships of gangsters, drug dealers, and ordinary people. It offers a different style of mafia portrayal from previous series such as The Sopranos, or other Italian series like Il Capo dei Capi. Gomorra is similar to The Wire in showing street-level crime and its hierarchical organisation from the pavement up to the office chair, and giving an audience a story about external and internal power struggles between criminals and delinquents.
