It is revealed that after Connor, Murphy, and their father Noah assassinated Papa Joe Yakavetta, they fled to Ireland and remained in a secluded farmhouse for the past eight years. Their uncle Sibeal arrives to inform them that a renowned Boston priest they heard of was murdered by a mysterious assassin who attempted to copycat their method. In response, the brothers dig up their old clothes and guns and prepare to depart back to Boston. On a freighter en route to Boston, they meet a Mexican fighter named Romeo who admires the saints and offers his resources in Boston if he is allowed to join them, and they accept. They hear a radio broadcast regarding Papa Joe's son Concezio Yakavetta and deduce that he is the man who hired the hitman to kill the priest and draw them out of hiding.
Meanwhile, Detectives Dolly, Duffy, and Greenly are at the scene of the priest's murder and become worried that their involvement in the murder of Papa Joe will be revealed. They are greeted by Special Agent Eunice Bloom, Paul Smecker's protege, and investigate the death of the priest. All four are correct in their assertion that it was not the Saints who murdered him, as the gun angles, exit wounds, and placement of pennies don't match their M.O. They begin an investigation to find a man of short stature who fits the description of the assassin and find that all signs point to Concezio Yakavetta, who is still angry over the circumstances of his father's murder. However, the assassin appears to be working for a mysterious old man, not Yakavetta, who apparently knows Noah and is trying to bring him out of hiding by having the brothers killed.
Connor, Murphy, and Romeo first hit a warehouse that is being used by an Asian gang to process heroin for Yakavetta. It ends up going sloppy, but Bloom discovers in the crime scene that the Saints have returned. Connor and Murphy reunite with their old bartender friend Doc, nicknamed "Fuck Ass", and ask him for a spare room. In an attempt to find Yakavetta, Bloom visits a low level mob enforcer named Gorgeous George at a massage parlor, but he doesn't reveal anything. He later gets a visit at a tanning salon from Connor and Murphy regarding the assassin. He tells them he doesn't know who the assassin is because he was hired through an independent contractor and not Yakavetta directly, but reveals that Yakavetta is hiding in the Prudential Tower.
The boys and Romeo have George set up a meeting with a group of mobsters at Romeo's uncle's bar and the brothers use George as bait to distract the mobsters and they kill them by surprise. The brothers let George go for helping them. The mysterious assassin arrives to kill the brothers, but Bloom arrives and saves the brothers, hitting the hitman with two shots. Bloom introduces herself as an acquaintance of Smecker, who apparently died a few years ago, and reveals she's really there to assist them. They clean up the crime scene to make it look as if the mobsters had turned on each other. Bloom takes Dolly, Duffy, and Greenly to the bar where the boys are staying at and are greeted by surprise by them. The brothers, Bloom, and the detectives learn the identity of the assassin: a Sicilian immigrant named Ottilio Panza who was granted citizenship shortly after the attacks on 9/11 when the country was on high alert. They believe there is someone else pulling strings since Yakavetta would not be capable of doing this.
With the help of the detectives, Connor and Murphy take out Yakavetta, who was meeting with other mobsters to find out a way to take out the Saints. Bloom interrogates the last remaining mobster, who was hiding during the attack, and learns that Panza was hired by an old man referred to as "The Roman". At the bar, Greenly arrives to celebrate the boys' victory when he is unexpectedly shot and killed by Panza. Noah also arrives unexpectedly to ask Panza about the Roman's location. Panza refuses to tell him so Noah kills him.
Noah reveals that he knows who the Roman is. In 1950s New York, Noah worked for his father in a leather factory and watched a trio of mobsters brutally murder him in front of his eyes. Consumed with anger and wanting revenge, Noah killed the three mobsters with the help of his best friend Louie, who is revealed to be the Roman. Noah still felt unsatisfied, so Louie helped him pick out mobsters to kill and helped him design his vest with six gun holsters. Later, Louie gave Noah up to police and had him sent away for 25 years to life, and Noah wants to find out why. Noah believes Louie wanted to lure him out after learning of Connor and Murphy.
Bloom illegally obtains a file regarding Louie's location and gives it to Noah before heading off the grid. Louie, anticipating Noah and the boys' arrival, calls an old friend for hitmen to protect him. When Noah arrives to talk to Louie at his mansion, Louie reveals that he was only interested in rising up the ranks of the Yakavetta family and was using Noah to eliminate the competition, afterward giving him up to the police when he was done. However, the mafia cast him out, but he still has remained an independent contractor since then, and let the Saints take out the rest of the mafia so Louie can take control. The hitmen waiting to take out the Saints make their move, but the Saints take out every one of them, with Noah getting fatally wounded. With his last breath, Noah kills Louie and dies soon afterward. The police arrive and arrest Connor, Murphy, and Romeo.
At an unknown location, Bloom meets with Sibeal regarding a place to hide. The boatman waiting to take her there is revealed to be Paul Smecker, who faked his death and secretly set up a chain of resources to assist the Saints. They plot to break the Saints out of Hoag Maximum Security Prison. In the meantime, Connor and Murphy plot to kill as many fellow prisoners as they can while they wait.
