Syndicate boss Charles Peck plans to set up his puppet Mayor Steve Tallman as governor by hiring provocateur Billy Walsh into creating student riots, so Tallman can deal with them and appear strong. The IMF must eliminate Peck for good by convincing him that Tallman has an illegitimate daughter (Dana) who is a revolutionist, so he believes she'll weaken his puppet's resolve.

A student agitator, Billy Walsh, meets with a group of his fellow agitators. He advises violence and confrontation and says they’ll discuss it more next week. Once the meeting breaks up, Billy calls Charles Peck, the deputy mayor, and demands his money. Peck says that he’ll get his money when he delivers, but Billy wants a down payment for the special service that he’s providing. Once Billy hangs up, Peck tells Mayor Steve Tallman that they’ll have to pay Billy his $5,000 the next day. Tallman worries that the situation is dangerous, but Peck assures him that it’s his best chance of becoming governor despite the risks. The mayor agrees to go ahead with the deal and pours himself another drink. When Peck warns him to lay off the booze, Tallman storms out and the deputy mayor tells his assistant, crooked cop Lt. Ross, to keep an eye on Tallman because he figures he’ll fold under the pressure...
