My take is that the guy is a twisted **** who does things for the sake of doing them. He's deliberately torturing his wife and calling it god's will. Intercepting letters is just something he does because he can. He prolly wants to know what Jimmy is up to, and didn't really care if she got the money or not. Sending her the money finally was just an excuse to NOT give it to his wife.

I can buy that. I didn't think about him reading what Jimmy says. And yes, he is twisted. And as i said before, perfect casting.

I'd have re-watch, but were Jimmy's letters already open? I remember he used a letter-opener. Maybe it was just on his wife's letter.

All of Jimmy's letters were open in the drawer with the cash sticking out.

I'm a bit confused about who the two lesbians are and how they fit into the story. Can someone explain this to me? Thanks.

Yes, it took me a while to latch onto this. At first we were led to believe she was spending so much time at the photographer's because of him, turns out it was her. Unless there was a 3-some along the way.

I agree. Her first visit a couple of episodes ago, led us to believe it was him. However, the look on all of their faces seemed odd. I thought it was something to do with Jimmie's son at first, perhaps his real father.

I was thinking earlier today if Jimmy's mom knows that his wife is a lesbian (or, I guess, "bi"). And if so, will we be seeing Jimmy's mom make a move?

The implication was that the photographer is gay and they are using each other for cover. Seemed like an unnecessary twist though.

Someday maybe I'll actually WATCH my projector...

Who was on the phone when Margaret answered at Nucky's desk? Agent Van Alden?

Yup.. the mobsters were watching Nucky's house and his office in particular. That scene-setup had been used in so many gangster movies before. Had it been Nucky who answered the phone, we might have seen a hail of bullets rain on the room from the street below, or armed men assault the "house" to get Nucky.

I thinks it's been suggested more than once that he's been in there before.


Another fantastic episode. So now we know that the FBI guy is working for Nucky. Sly devil, that Nucky. And don't those butlers come in handy sometimes?

How so? He told his girlfriend/fiance that he had to go see his mom. His mom was setting up Lucky.

I'm already agonizing. I think Nucky will be fighting a losing battle in the end, but he might hold them off for a while. The feds of course will accomplish nothing except to steer the conflicts one way or the other in the short term.

Shoot-didn't think of that. I've deleted it. If you delete yours it's not so much a spoiler.

I wouldn't consider that a spoiler. While Enoch is based on a real character, the last name was changed to allow any sort of fiction the creators wish to utilize. But, putting that aside, how many series kill off the main star?

Did I miss something?

I thought this was a HBO mini-series. No season 2, right?

HBO Renews 'Boardwalk' After One Episode
By Nellie Andreeva, Deadline.com's TV Editor - September 21st, 2010

The ratings for the Sunday premiere of HBO's prohibition era extravaganza Boardwalk Empire were barely in this morning when the pay cable network announced a second-season pickup for the drama from Martin Scorsese and Terence Winter. The series starring Steve Buscemi debuted with 4.8 million viewers to become HBO's most watched series premiere since the 2004 opener of Deadwood behind The Sopranos. I feel that is only appropriate because there are similarities in the tone between Boardwalk and Deadwood. Because of HBO's big investment in building elaborate sets for Boardwalk, including an actual boardwalk, a second season renewal was always considered a given as networks look to amortize upfront costs. Still, the overwhelmingly positive reviews and solid premiere ratings probably sealed the deal. Here is HBO's release.

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 21, 2010 - Following resounding critical approval and high viewer numbers for the series' Sept. 19 debut, HBO has renewed BOARDWALK EMPIRE for a second season, it was announced today by Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming.

All the ingredients aligned for this one, from Mark Wahlberg and Steve Levinson's initial pitch, to Martin Scorsese's enormous contributions as director and executive producer, to the genius of Terry Winter and the expertise of Tim Van Patten, to a stellar cast led by Steve Buscemi, said Lombardo. The response from the media and our viewers has been nothing short of amazing.

From Terence Winter, and Martin Scorsese, BOARDWALK EMPIRE is set in Atlantic City at the dawn of Prohibition, when the sale of alcohol became illegal throughout the United States.

The Sept. 19 premiere of BOARDWALK EMPIRE averaged 4.8 million viewers during the 9:00 p.m. airing to score HBO's largest premiere of any program in over six years (since March 21, 2004 - Deadwood with The Sopranos as lead-in). With additional plays at 10:15 p.m. and 11:30 p.m., BOARDWALK EMPIRE was watched by a combined 7.1 million viewers for the night.

Season one credits: Created by Terence Winter, BOARDWALK EMPIRE is executive produced by Terence Winter, Martin Scorsese, Tim Van Patten, Stephen Levinson and Mark Wahlberg; co-executive producers, Gene Kelly and Lawrence Konner; producers (series), Rudd Simmons and Rick Yorn; producer (pilot), David Coatsworth; supervising producers, Howard Korder and Margaret Nagle.

They start shooting Season 2 in Feb or March. Although the renewal's public announcement was made in September, the decision had already occurred in June. Once HBO saw what they had, it was a no-brainer.

This excellent series has been rightly praised for its attention to details of the period in which the events -- both factual and fictional -- took place.

However, even in 1920, when driving north from Atlantic City to New York City -- where the deputy was taking the witness -- the Atlantic Ocean would be on the right of the automobile, not on the left as shown starting at the 45 minute mark.
