The friction revs up in the third instalment of this six-part Underbelly-style mini-series when the city chapter breaks away to join the Bandidos. On his buck's night, a drunk and belligerent Jock is refused entry to a Kings Cross venue, then bashed by a Maori bouncer. When the city chapter is asked to go in to bat for Jock and deal with the Maoris, they decide Jock should fight his own fight. This angers the top dog, who changes the club rules and puts some noses out of joint by not inviting the city chapter to his wedding. Threats and fighting ensue, and the division between Comancheros and Bandidos is solidified as we edge closer to the infamous Milperra Massacre. While the production is great and the first episode was promising, the series is starting to drag on a bit.
