Hugh and Keith were best friends when they were kids. They were both on the same baseball team. However, as time went on, the two boys began to drift apart.

Keith became inspired by his dad's regulation and law business. Keith gave Jesse his all when he ran for district attorney with the goal of eradicating illegal gambling and prostitution on the Gulf Coast. Hugh, on the other hand, began working in his father's clubs, which offered illegal gambling and prostitution. Hugh began boxing after quitting school sports.

At the point when Jesse put Hugh's dad, Spear Malco, in prison for prostitution, Hugh organized with Nevin Noll, Spear's right-hand man, to have Jesse killed. Hugh hired Henry Taylor to set off a bomb inside Jesse's office in the courthouse using Nevin's connections..

In addition, Keith was informed of the governor's decision to grant clemency during a meeting. He explained to Keith that it was believed that murder was against the law. Consequently, the governor was puzzled as to how the state could so easily execute a man.

Keith went to Hugh's death row the night of his scheduled execution to assist in making the decision. Keith had been reflecting on the enjoyable times he and Hugh had as kids.


ENDING -  Keith was informed by Hugh that he would rather die than spend the rest of his life in jail. Hugh told Keith as they parted ways that he had only wanted Jesse hurt and not killed. Keith decided to trust him.
