Chalky and Al get to do some fighting and killing....
Got to wonder what Lucky and Meyer will do next...
Richard Harrow....what a tactical feat..legendary.
Bravo....Excellent end to a great season.
Amen! Richard continues to fascinate me. His bloody faced scene with Julia and her father broke my heart. Poor Richard! As predictable as it was,I really enjoyed seeing Richard take out the thugs who were occupying Gillian's house and rescue Jimmy's son from that environment.
Nucky has really and truly learned that you can't be half a gangster. After first conning Rothstein into having Masseria end his alliance with gyp in return for Nucky turning over his interest in the Overholt distillery, Nucky neatly double crossed Rothstein by notifying the feds of the illegal liquor operation at the distillery. Then, Nucky co-opted Gyp's principal lieutenant into killing Gyp. Clearly, it's as big a mistake to cross Nucky as it is to cross Richard.
I continue to rather like Margaret. She has made the best of a bad hand. I was particularly moved by her trip to the abortionist. That couldn't have been easy for a 1920s Irish Catholic lady but what else was she to do?
As a result of being drugged by Gyp and seeing the carnage in her house,, Gillian seemed to have a psychotic break but then seemed to pull herself together. I'm anxious to see how all that plays out.
This season's Boardwalk Empire was a great, great season of television. Even three years in, the show got better all the time.
