It turns out that the criminal organization is being run by a particularly ruthless criminal, a woman named Concha. Michael adopts the persona of an unstable and boisterous criminal taking over the neighborhood to convince them to give up control of the neighborhood. He destroys his client's store and violently attacks some of Concha's mooks.

After a small delay that upsets the client (they always want immediate results), Michael continues his intimidation and is brought to meet boss-lady Concha, who wants him to continue ''her'' plan using his methods. She's uninterested in old-fashioned control and wants to make a lot of money with real estate, developing the neighborhood on a large scale.
