As much as I have disliked this season, I promised myself I would stick with the show until the bitter end. It won't be easy or, probably, much fun but I am going to do it.

Given what Luciano's guys did to Mickey Doyle when he popped off, I agree that Nucky made the best choice possible by trying to defuse the situation and live to fight another day.

I too think Frank will be back. I loved how he used the bug he found in his closet, which was no doubt planted by the shadowy sleazeball who ruthlessly interrogated Charlie and his wife. In...
