Another solid episode. Man, I thought Darmody was.....
Spoiler:
gonna make a crack at Capone's son during that scene. I was screaming "Don't......DON'T! Thank goodness it was not the case.Graham owned his scene with Pitt when he talked about his son's deafness.

Yeah, I was feeling nervous. If there's one thing you don't do it's piss off Al Capone. But it was funny to see his vulnerability right after. Not what I was expecting at all... It was some of the strongest acting by Graham on the show. Subtle work, but very effective. I even felt bad for him as he tried to make up with Jimmy. And he's still an asshole, but at least he's shown he has a heart.

I'm also enjoying Margaret's story. It isn't going where I expected. She's suddenly having to realize what position she has taken in Nucky's life and I'm sure she's going to do something big like she did an episode ago. You don't ignore and push a woman like her off to the side... I wonder if she'll do something to Lucy now that they've confronted each other. She took one step forward financially but two steps backward in other aspects. Or, just maybe she'll revert back to her personality with her first husband and remain silent... but I really hope she doesn't.

Anybody else notice if it was one of the D'Alessio that jacked the guy on the boardwalk? I began wondering if this was part of Doyle's plan to get some money to pay them back.

That makes sense. Definitely looks like the job Doyle propositioned in the last week's ep (or was it the one before that? )

Jimmy playing five finger fillet was such a fucking hero shot. This show is frickin' fantastic. Definitely fills the hole that Rome and Deadwood and the Sopranos left.

Great episode. I also think it's a strong contender for most female nudity in one single HBO original series hour. Seriously, every woman was seen nude in this one, body double or not. Kind of got ridiculous.

I like how they approached the inaccuracy of Capone's war involvement, i know a lot of people were turned off by that with episode 1. Love how they handled it. Also love Sonny's introduction (who Puza famously named Sonny Corleone's character in the Godfather after, even though Sonny Capone never got involved in the family business). I'm glad to see that Jimmy isn't just another "Christopher from the Sopranos" archetype of the idiotic and ungrateful new school of mafia. He is very much becoming his own.

While I am a little drunk, I disagree with such a type of Chris from Sopranos. He has one of the biggest arcs in the entire Sopranos universe. He's a tremendous character.

I completely agree. I wasn't commenting on an archetype "of" Christopher, as if it was a cliche before the Sopranos, so much as i was commenting on an archetype made by Christopher in the Sopranos, since Boardwalk shares writers from the Sopranos i didn't want Jimmy to follow the footsteps of Christopher too closely, since that would be repetitive.

Christopher was definitely one of the best things about The Sopranos, i was just worried that Jimmy began the series closely resembling the Christopher in the early first season of the Sopranos... luckily he has evolved into someone incomparable already.

This show...holy fuck this show.

The eerie Dr. Jekyl & Mr. Hyde music playing while he sniped Liam and then leading right into movie theater scene gave me EXTREME goose bumps. I shuttered, literally, as he was packing up his rifle.

I am continuously floored by this show.

Absolutely. My favorite shot of the episode.

The whole story between Nucky and his past with his father as well has how Margaret approaches him about that past were some of the best things about this episode.

That and Richard Harrow. The the last scene with him and the Jekyll and Hyde music playing was great.

Man I just never want any episode to end. The character and plot development is so fuckin' good. I feared going into this series that Michael Shannon's character might be a one-note tough cop, but holy fuck he is one scary, multidimensional motherfucker. Probably the most intimidating and interesting character on the show.

I like where things are heading. These last four episodes are going to be something else.

I also had no idea Christopher McDonald was going to make an appearance.

"It's not to late too go to law school Arnold.

I prefer to make an honest living."

great episode... scratch that, fucking brilliant episode. The past five episodes have been gearing up for Nucky to come face to face with Jimmy again, now the shit has hit the fan it seems and Nucky seems ready to arm his bureaucracy and becoming a full fledged gangster. Love how Rothstein, Alden, Elias and Capone all had moments to shine, especially Alden. I love what they are doing with his character, the scene with his wife and the letter broke my heart.

The Republican convention was also a showstopper of a set piece.

I may have missed the signs, but the whole 'Jimmy's wife is a lesbian' angle seems to have come out of nowhere, and been an excuse to increase the boobage.

Not a sign but a misdirection when Jimmy thought something was going on with his fiance and the photographer...when it was really the photographer's assistant/wife.

I really don't understand Jimmy's Mom's character. Again, she was talking to him on the phone like a girlfriend/lover would and not a mother. Also, she certainly has some venom for Jimmy's fiance.

Didn't realize that's who it was, but it still feels like an excuse to throw more boobage into the mix.

Not that there hasn't been a lot of action this season so far, but things are heating up fast.

Another phenomenal episode. I'm almost afraid to watch the next episode for fear of Nelson's reaction. I know this is becoming somewhat of a cliche, but next week's episode is going to be fucking nuts.

This show is just too fucking good. Anyone who isn't watching is seriously missing out.

He's his mentor, not father. Although I think it's fair to say he's more of his adoptive father, given Nucky's relationship to his real one.

No, I know that. I'm talking about Jimmy Darmody, not Nucky. Jimmy talked about his dad this episode in the present tense meaning he's alive and he implied his father can get him out of jail meaning he must have more pull than Nucky in some way... then a scene or two later, it cuts to Nucky meeting with the Commodore. It's never said outright but I feel like it's the only possible character who could fit the bill... unless it's WARREN G. HARDING himself! haha, I doubt that though.

Heh. Disregard that. For some reason I read it as "Nucky's father" not Jimmy's. My mistake.
