Nucky's future sure doesn't look bright but it's hard to believe he won't come back with a vengeance & put the hurt on Jimmy who is definitely in over his head.

Just watched this week's episode last night. Spectacular. I think it was pretty clear that Owen killed the other guy in the bar relating to something that happened in Ireland and it had nothing to do with the hit on Nucky.

Also: "I'm gonna whip you through the mud like a filly at Belmont." Lucky Luciano. Possibly the best line on TV this year.

Right.

I don't think so. The guy at the bar who got strangled was an opponent of the IRA, who Owen obviously still has strong allegiance to. Maybe that's the real reason why Owen was loaned to Nucky, and now that his job is done, back to the old sod he'll go. That would also create a plot nuance with the new relationship he has with Margaret.

Yes, it didn't make a lot of sense the way it happened, but it probably was for a reason.

Another great episode this week. (Again very little discussion?)
Jimmy seems like he is getting a little full of himself and that will be his downfall. Making an enemy of his philadelphia friend was not the way to go.Great scene with Nucky and Eli at the wake. Rothstein always has a great ways of delivering his thoughts. Those machine guns will obviously be Nuckys
offer to the IRA, how they are going to help him will be interesting to see.

Jimmy has a genuine talent for making enemies.
He has the personality of a tick strung-out on laxatives.

Agree with scene at the wake with Nucky and Eli.

IF the IRA is willing to provide Nucky with muscle, I think he will know precisely where to apply it....

Poor Jimmy looks more & more out of his league; he has a big surprise coming In addition to Nuck, he's making an enemy out of the Butcher. Real smart, kid

Yes it will. Muscle? start terrorist attacks in Atlantic City to scare everyone?

I thought the scene with him playing the board game was great - you could see the gears turning.

I love this show

Ah, yes. I thought it was odd they injected the machine gun scene with no followup but I didn't think about Nucky selling them to the IRA.

Where's the cash in the bag coming from that Van Alden stashed behind the picture? I loved the beach scene and it seems Jimmy's wife's gaydar is working very well.

The money is coming from nightclub busts. He has his people empty the cash register and he keeps some or all of it. It's been shown before.

I was hoping Nucky finally got to him

Van Alden has to be one of the biggest hypocrites ever portrayed on TV. He's killed, taken booze money, lied, cheated on his wife, & done his very best to imitate John Edwards

loved the scene with him crumpling the lunch ticket after saying they can't take a freebie lunch

what more will this guy do to in the name of "holy righteousness"?

Another entertaining hour from HBO.

It looks like an ocean cruise will do Nucky some good.

Yeah, I don't get what Jimmy is thinking, other than trying to show how tough and dangerous he is. Jimmy has seen firsthand how psychotic the butcher is....I can't think of any other character we have seen on the show who I want less as an enemy.

Maybe a certain federal agent? Although actually it appears to be more dangerous to have him as a friend.

Malum in se and Malum prohibitum. Agent Van Alden has decided that the latter does not need complete enforcement. And earlier, he baptized another agent until he drowned. Seems the former does not restrict him either.

The show gets better and better. It's a help to watch Ken Burns' Prohibition, for a historical overview.

Another excellent episode.

Nuck is putting in the groundwork for his Great Revenge.
The IRA was NOT a bunch of wimps.

Jimmy's violence is making him vulnerable to anyone with half a brain.

I see Darmody Burger as the special of the week at the Butcher's

Owen & Nucky both looked near panic at the news from Margaret. I'll bet they both initially thought "OMG, I might be infected!"

Seriously...Nucky always seemed sincere in his feelings towards the kids so him being upset looked genuine.

can't wait for next episode. this show gets better & better.

Polio was known as a childhood disease, so I doubt either one was too concerned with themselves on hearing the news. It was rare for an adult to contract the virus, but they could spread it.

I was shocked to see the man from Baltimore, don't recall his name, interacting with Chalky White. After the incident at the jail I would have thought he'd have gotten as far away from Atlantic City as he could. Or that Chalky would have ever let him get that close.

Chalky's no fool, what in the world is he doing dealing with someone who would cut his throat if given half a chance?

He needs someone to do his dirty work for him. What better s**t disturber than an outsider. He's disposable if need be and no one will care.

I could be mistaken, but I sort of got the impression that Chalky got him the kitchen job in the first place, for the express purpose of starting trouble. Chalky has his orders from Nucky to raise hell in A.C.

Polio was a childhood disease, usually called infantile paralysis. OTOH, adults did get it, including FDR who had polio at age 39.

I think they were probably not too concerned though about having it because neither of them was sick, and they had not been in contact with Emily for at least a couple of weeks.

That was mine as well. My point is, given what happened at the jail, how the two of them could subsequently form a business relationship is hard to accept.

yes, and actually my wife had a relative who had it & died after returning from the service (young). So, it's NOT limited to childhood. The most at risk groups when it was prevalent are described as children, pregnant women & elderly.

not likely Margaret became infected but is possible, especially since she's throwing caution to the wind at the hospital.

Or she could be wondering if this isn't payback for her "sins"

next 3 episodes should be very interesting. Has it been green-lighted for a 3rd season? Resolution or cliffhanger?
