Ciro is increasingly isolated. Scianel has turned her back on him and gone back to Don Pietro. The Savastano side is consolidating, while the Alliance is wavering. But now Pietro's problems are coming from within the clan.
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.
