He is too much of a threat to ignore.
Won't be long now....
Gyp came within an eyelash of going to meet his maker this episode.
He is desperate, and will do anything and everything to stay alive.
That's true indeed. Gyp's hatred of and need to get rid of Nucky is the main reason why most of us think Gyp is the leading suspect in the explosion and fire at Babette's club. Still, I can't quite bring myself to dismiss the possibility that some other dude done it.
I also believe that the probabilities are strongly in favor of Gyp being gone by the end of the season.
Nucky's obsessive relationship with Billie was fascinating. I'm not convinced that Nucky loved her because at this stage of his life I'm not sure he could love anyone. If he could have fallen in love again, though, it would have been with Billie, Man, I'm really going to miss that girl!
