Anyways, they're more ruthless than Nucky, who folded very easily. So of course the turnout is kind of predictable.
While Luciano may have been called "Lucky" .. it is Nucky that has truly been Lucky as far as the murder and mayhem is concerned ..
Lucky Nucky ..
The teaser on HBOgo would make you think Nucky gets it in the end .. his power has certainly waned .. he no longer commands the troops he used to .. Mickey Doyle is gone (not that he was a huge Nucky supporter unless there was cash on the table) .. it's about down to Nucky and Eli, the brothers .. and Eli is a wreck ..
I've skipped over the intro since after the first couple episodes .. I watched it for the first time in a long time last episode and I keep thinking about how those Italian handmade Forzieri two-tone wing tips always come out clean, shiny and new ..
Mention has been made of the actor playing the young Nucky the cop .. who I think does a great job .. but it's also worth mentioning that the young woman playing Gillian Darmody as a girl who does an excellent job and bears a solid resemblance to Gretchen Mol .. IMO, Mol is maybe the most underappreciated actor on the show .. her sins are far more dark than any of the mobsters .. rooted in her early "relationship" with the Commodore ..
The letter from Gillian to Nucky and what transpires (if anything) between then on the final episode should be interesting .. I mean, from the old days, it's Gillian, Nucky and Eli that's left ..
I'm really, really going to miss the show .. it's been a hell of a journey ..
