In Bribery Allen has stepped up his campaign against Old Tom, having arranged for the Anvil gang to smash up the old feller’s house. When Bill sees a calling card left behind by the gang he knows they were responsible. He confronts Jacky and makes him tell him who put them up to it.
Jacky’s number two in the gang, Kenny, is none too impressed that the house they vandalised belonged to Old Tom.
Sarah’s dad tries to tell Allen to cool it but Allen makes it plain that he will the use the knowledge that he has been taking money in exchange for information against him. Allen himself then pays a visit to Old Tom and when he gets nowhere tells his henchman Franks that the “gloves are off” – meaning it’s going to get a lot worse for the old man.
