I thought the scene in the church in which Gyp berated the Holy Trinity and then knocked down a priest was wonderful. Gyp is a walking talking bomb. I also liked the insight we got at Gyp's dinner table in which the women of the house actually got Gyp to do their will. We've seldom if ever seen anything like that from Gyp.
I believe Gillian's motive in killing her Jimmy-look-alike lover in her bathtub and hanging Jimmy's dog tags around his neck was to be able to produce "Jimmy's" body immediately so that she could sell the Commodore's house and thereby solve her financial problems. That said, Gillian's incestuous relationship with Jimmy was so weird, I admit that other factors could have been at play, which induced her to kill the Jimmy-look-alike. I don't know whether bearing a child at 13 and then having intercourse with him when he reached puberty would make any woman nuts, but it clearly wasn't good for Gillian's mental health.
