Tensions are boiling over in the dingy titular city in Episode 6, titled ‘Every Feather.’ Mike tries harder and harder to control expectations, but he appears to be overwhelmed by challenges right now.
Things are looking very dicey indeed, especially when you consider the foreboding message scribbled in blood on his office wall, not to mention the deceased agents discovered nearby.

Recap of Mayor of Kingstown Season 1 Episode 6
The episode begins in the prison yard, where numerous factions assemble before a full-fledged brawl breaks out among the inmates.
One of the detainees gets stabbed by his fellow inmates in the midst of the mayhem, and the perpetrators remain unknown.
When the prison guards place the entire building on lockdown, Mike is put under pressure from several gang leaders who demand that the guards resign.
Bunny loses his cool and threatens the Kingstown powerbroker that if the prison matter is not resolved, violence will “spill out onto the streets.”
Meanwhile, Milo tries a new tactic with Mike, ordering Josef to beat up on Iris. When the battered young girl arrives at Mike’s office, he immediately seeks out Josef and thrashes him.
When the McLusky brother realises that Iris is in great danger from Milo, he requests his FBI contacts to place her in the witness protection programme.
Iris, on the other hand, is unable to supply enough useful information to qualify for the programme.
Is Iris Dead in Mayor of Kingstown Episode 6? What Does It Mean When Someone Says “Every Feather”?
When Milo asks to talk with Mike at the park, Mike agrees, only to discover that the jailed criminal has an implant that tracks Iris.
Mike returns to his office to find her missing and the two FBI officers with whom he had left her brutally slain.
The words “Every Feather” are painted in blood on the office wall in the episode’s last scene.
As a result, Iris appears to have been kidnapped by Milo, who discloses how he implants a tracking device in the abdomens of his female employees.
The criminal has threatened to kill her, although it is improbable that he will do so soon.
Milo is a calculated crook, according to Mike, so he’ll take advantage of the McLusky brothers’ weakness for Iris to the farthest extent possible.
Milo seemed to aim at torturing Iris as much as possible, and the phrase “Every Feather” seems to imply a similar outcome.
The expression appears to refer to plucking every feather from a bird, implying that the criminal has devised a lengthy and agonising strategy.
Milo has publicly said that he aims to torture the girl Mike cares about on the former’s wall (in blood! ); therefore, the term is also meant as a taunt to Mike.
As a result, it appears that any pretence of politeness has vanished from their relationship, and the gloves are off between Milo and Mike.
Milo kidnaps Iris For A Reason
Milo’s sole motivation for abducting Iris appears to be to enrage Mike. Milo has tried and failed to get the attention of the Kingstown powerbroker to address the money he lost, so this appears to be his next ploy.
Milo, ironically, probably expected Mike to assault Josef, seeing the McLusky brother’s retaliation as proof of his concern for Iris.
As a result, his next natural move is to kidnap Mike’s favourite girl in order to gain the important powerbroker’s entire attention.
Milo, on the other hand, must play his cards wisely, as being on Mike’s bad side appears to have grave implications for criminals.
Milo’s assassination of FBI officers in the process of kidnapping Iris will almost certainly result in a large inquiry, which could cause problems for Kingstown’s criminal underbelly.
Why is Bunny So Enraged With Mike?
Bunny is particularly enraged by the happenings in prison since the inmate who is stabbed during the turmoil of the prison riot is a member of his gang.
To add insult to injury, the watchtower guard who is supposed to fire the attackers accidentally shoots the man who is being assaulted.
As a result, Bunny believes that both the convicts and the guards are conspiring against his guys.
To make matters worse, Bunny’s highest-ranking gang members have been placed in solitary confinement by the jail authorities.
Bunny is enraged and insists that Mike speak with the guards and end the prison lockdown. Mike appears to dismiss the threat from the strong drug dealer, who also threatens to “take care” of the guard who shot his man.
Things, on the other hand, appear to be in jeopardy at the moment, and Bunny or one of the other gang leaders may soon breach a line that Mike has warned them not to cross.
