Make yourself comfortable Nicky boy you have a long wait
21 April 2014 | by kapelusznik18See all my reviews

***SPOILERS*** It's when big time gambler Nick Mori, Steve Cochran, was ripped off together with his gambling partners, one who was shot to death, of his cash, $63,000.00, that he immediately went to his mob partner, after seeing the police, "Big John" Valens, Maurice Tarplin, who's nephew Frankie "Itchy Fingers" , Warren Finnerty, was part of the heist team. It's later that Nick gets an even bigger surprise in meeting his bride to be, all the way from far off Sicily,Merissa, Louis Nettleton,whom he never met.

Of course all this has nothing to do with love & marriage but a favor Nick owes his future wife's father who saved his life back in the old country and now wants Merissa to become an American citizen by marrying him on paper only and getting divorced within 48 hours. But it's Nick's involvement with "Big John" Valens that's the killer here. "Big John" wants Nick to get his bitter rival in a Las Vages hotel deal Wally Salk, James Fredrick, to show up in the Big Apple, NYC, for a game of poker where he can finally lay him out, or whack him, for all the trouble he caused him over the years.

***SPOILERS*** It takes a while but Nick finally comes to his senses in first really marrying, for real not on paper, lovely Merissa who was about to ship back home to Sicily but also turn against "Big John" and his nephew "Itchy Fingers" Frankie in preventing them from icing Wally Salk whom they tried to have him set up. After all the shooting and killing in the 60 minute "Naked City" episode Nick found his true love in life Merissa. And thus gave up his career as a big time gambler and lived happily ever after with her as well as his new and legit job making hero sandwiches and macaroni salads & coleslaw as a bodega owner on the Lower East Side of Manhatten where life wasn't as exciting but a lot more safer!
