|According to Bobby, Viktor participates in a confrontation between dockworkers, strikebreakers and the authorities. In an effort to subdue him, Viktor sustains a pry bar injury that costs him his right eye. In the area on unrelated business, [[Atlas]] takes note of Viktor. Viktor's St. Louis Police Department file records Viktor being arrested on charges of multiple assault. His case history includes involvement in the incitement of violence during a strikers' rally at the municipal docks. According to Bobby, Atlas arranges for a lawyer for Viktor who in turn has Viktor's prison sentence reduced. Viktor subsequently works for Atlas to pay off his debt, then remains with Atlas because he has nowhere else to go.

|[[Mordecai]] and [[Viktor]] are employed by Lackadaisy and work together for several years. Mordecai is known variously as "Ol'Serious Face" and Atlas's "golden boy", and there are multiple stories about him. Atlas, possibly with [[Ruby Pepper]]'s assistance, arranges for liquor to be brought to [[Defiance]], Missouri by train, where [[Abelard]], [[Bobby]] and [[Elsa]] store it at the [[Arbogast Funeral Home]] pending transfer to Lackadaisy. When a third party begins stealing the liquor, Atlas brings Mordecai and Viktor to Defiance. They learn that the third party has been selling the stolen liquor to a St. Louis-based gang that is in competition with [[Marigold]]. The three put a stop to that operation. Atlas and Mordecai return to St. Louis while Viktor remains in Defiance for some time before also returning to St. Louis.

|Rocky writes Freckle another letter. Rocky is in central Oklahoma. He wishes he could visit St. Louis during the summer. Rocky asks whether Freckle has seen Rocky's father, as Rocky's letters to him have gone unacknowledged. In a later letter, Rocky states that he has joined a circus as a [[roustabout]]. While parts of this letter are obscured, it appears that a [[hostler]] suggested that Rocky might be able to work as an [[escape artist]]. An envelope that may have contained one or both of these letters indicates a return address of Custer, South Dakota, though no street information is provided. Freckle's address appears to be 1116 North Benton Avenue, St. Charles, Missouri. A [[bench warrant]] is issued for Zib after he fails to show up in court to address having been picked up at a hop house.

Mitzi is still talking to Atlas, this time about his "wayward golden boy". Atlas' office is on 2nd floor. Mitzi is planning to confront "an old friend" about the golden boy, worried about more "parting gestures".

|Rocky remembers Mordecai and has heard stories about him. Mordecai knew Rocky was in the band. Mordecai took the guns. Mordecai worked with Viktor for years, tried to get him to retire, ended up kneecapping him. Asa used to be a nice guy, claims he still is. Asa has infringed on LD's trade routes. Asa is at the behest of his employer, agreements were with Atlas, not Mitzi.

|Asa tried to warn Atlas about...? Warns Mitzi to back down. Rocky and Freckle are not sophisticated. Asa thinks Mitzi is trying to put things how they used to be. Invites Mitzi to play at the Marigold Room. She played a ukelele with the band. Mitzi doesn't plan to back down.

|Mordecai didn't know about Asa warning Atlas...did it happen? Mordecai doesn't have a high opinion of Asa. Mordecai killed a "mouthpiece" earlier. Marigold has a thorn in its side, Mordecai doesn't know why. Asa thinks he knows something about how Atlas died, but he doesn't? Mordecai didn't tell Asa anything about Atlas's death, but knows things himself, as does Mitzi.

|Mordecai over-analyzes matters regarding Asa? Asa doesn't explain things to Mordecai, claims he can't. Mordecai feels Mitzi is partly culpable for what happened to Atlas, enough to destroy LD. Mordecai doesn't think Mitzi can do anything but disgrace LD. No love lost there.

His case history includes involvement in the incitement of violence during a strikers' rally at the municipal docks.

Atlas, possibly with Ruby Pepper's assistance, arranges for liquor to be brought to Defiance, Missouri by train, where Abelard, Bobby and Elsa store it at the Arbogast Funeral Home pending transfer to Lackadaisy. When a third party begins stealing the liquor, Atlas brings Mordecai and Viktor to Defiance. They learn that the third party has been selling the stolen liquor to a St. Louis-based gang that is in competition with Marigold. The three put a stop to that operation.

Rocky asks whether Freckle has seen Rocky's father, as Rocky's letters to him have gone unacknowledged. In a later letter, Rocky states that he has joined a circus as a roustabout. While parts of this letter are obscured, it appears that a hostler suggested that Rocky might be able to work as an escape artist. An envelope that may have contained one or both of these letters indicates a return address of Custer, South Dakota, though no street information is provided. Freckle's address appears to be 1116 North Benton Avenue, St. Charles, Missouri. A bench warrant is issued for Zib after he fails to show up in court to address having been picked up at a hop house.

May 28 - Saturday "Daybreak" through "Powder-keg". Mitzi, Freckle and Rocky meet with Asa and Mordecai. Asa admits that Mordecai removed the guns from Lackadaisy's storeroom and provided them to the pig farmers. He also states that the agreements made with Atlas do not apply to Mitzi, and he is under orders from his employer. Asa encourages Mitzi to shut down Lackadaisy before matters deteriorate further, but Mitzi responds that she would rather take the risk than have Lackadaisy wilt away. Rocky learns from Viktor that quality alcohol can be found in Defiance. Mitzi steals and cashes a blank check from Wick's company to pay her debts. Zib and Virgil are arrested. Zib meets Dom Drago. Rocky and Ivy travel to Defiance, where a hearse intercepts them while they are attempting to procure liquor. Rocky is injured and rendered unconscious during the chase. Ivy confronts Abelard and Bobby who were in the hearse, and is taken to the Arbogast Funeral Home when she explains that she and Rocky are there on Lackadaisy's behalf. Ivy meets Elsa, and Bobby relates the funeral home's past relations with Lackadaisy. Ivy coerces Abelard and Bobby into agreeing to negotiate with her so that Lackadaisy might procure their liquor.
