As they arrive at Harwood, however, rather than a ceremony, Mickey shoots JD in the head. Mickey explains that Salvatore couldn't trust JD, as he could've betrayed the Leones the same way he betrayed the Sindaccos. With JD's body still in the front passenger seat, Toni must drop Mickey off at Portland View, before dumping the car in the river or sea, destroying any evidence. If the car is spotted by the police, the player will immediately attain a 2-star wanted level. The mission is complete once the car is disposed of.
Joseph Daniel O'Toole - Killed by Mickey Hamfists, reasoning that Salvatore would not be able to trust O'Toole because of his betrayal of the Sindaccos.
This is great! I slaved for the Sindaccos for years and nothing! Those bastards kept me down just 'cause of a little Irish blood in my veins. But Salvatore, god bless him, he don't let a little thing like that get in the way.
This mission was inspired by the film The Godfather, where Rocco Lampone kills Paulie Gatto in the same way because of treachery to the Don. Also, the manner of the setup for the execution (under the guise of being made) is similar to the execution of Tommy DeVito in the film Goodfellas.
When Toni enters the Leone Sentinel, the radio will be tuned in to Double Clef FM, and the track "E amore un ladroncello" from "Cosi Fan Tutte" will always play.
In the PSP and Mobile versions, Mickey only fires one shot at JD, whereas in the PS2 version he fires two shots.
Mickey has two different lines when he is dropped off at his house, one of which is simply reminding Toni to dump the car in the river---that is if if the cops haven't spotted them upon arrival. However, if the cops spot the car beforehand, Mickey will exclaim, "I'm gettin' the hell out of here!" upon returning home.
