Did Michael suspect Fredo before finding out he was the traitor in the family in The Godfather: Part II? Two scenes that made me think of this possibility are when Fredo asks if he knows any one in Havana and Michael says "oh I don't know... Hyman Roth? Johnny Ola?". Also there's the scene when Fredo pretends to meet Ola for the first time and Michael kind of looks on appearing suspicious.


It's my understanding that Michael didn't know Fredo was the traitor until they were at that strip club and Fredo, who previously stated he'd never met Ola, said something to the effect of, "I come here all the time with Johnny".

  • I know he didn't know but was he suspicious or did it come as a complete shock? – Jason Nov 15 '16 at 15:55

    I felt it was a complete shock. Just watch the look on his face when Fredo slips up about Ola and the club. You could tell that was the moment of impact. He knew there was a rat, but until that point he didn't think it was his own brother. – Johnny Bones Nov 15 '16 at 19:06
