A coin is flipped and Frank forces one of the inmates out. On the streets of Marseille Frank gets tailed by a rival mafia. halfway through the chase Frank gets called by Dieter telling him to come back to the garage. Frank tells Dieter he will stop by after he goes to the house. Dieter tells him to take care of the car. Frank uses the back streets to lose the tail and then runs into the French Police with one of the cars driven by Inspector Tarconi. Frank uses this opportunity to lose the tail with Inspector Tarconi stopping the rival mafia. Frank delivers the gansters on time to the funeral and uses a wreath to disguise his car. Inspector Tarconi arrives to confront Frank with the gangster telling Tarconi that he is going to bury his brother before he takes him back to jail. Tarconi agrees and tells his men to stand down. Inspector Tarconi talks to Frank about completing his mission and Frank tells him he has the right to respect peoples privacy. Inspector Tarconi says he stopped at Franks house to search it and Frank tells him to drop by any time before he drives off with the wreath falling off the hood. Edit
