I'm only late into this discussion because I played the DLC on my own without referencing the Forum, I started up the Episodes for all my varied Gamertags, and after a GTA IV switch from PS3 to Xbox360, so forgive a few bumps from me, but I am starting much of it over again in places. After the time spent with other games, the mind gets cloudy. Billy calls a roll on the opposing biker gang for retribution for Niko's act. In the early stages of the story, Johnny questions Billy about it, but you open the typical can of worms by following Billy's lead and re-creating a gangwar that Johnny had made efforts in aborting.
The most compelling aspect of Rockstar's game narrative is this type of story telling I believe. It doesn't have to relate back to Niko in the Lost and Damned because Niko's own story goes off on it's own, as do the others. The idea that GTA V might cross character paths will start a new pattern relative to Los Santos in it's "V" era and setting, how much relates to past GTAs is something everyone's wondering about
