He tells the men that he just got off the phone with Rothstein. Rosetti’s at the Artemis Club and Masseria’s withdrawing his support. They know this, Rosetti does not. Chalky’s over wanting to bash in Al’s punkinhead and wants to know how this all happened. Nucky non-answers that he paid for it and wants to see Chalky and Al in private. He walks back to the office while Eli stands there posing with his gun (and looking rather fetching, if a little grimy) but turns back to let Chalky and Al know they can kill each other later. Heh. He sounds like their dad.
Gyp’s sitting on Gillian’s lavish bed and looking all hangdog until Gillian comes in wearing a black lace teddy which seems to “brighten his spirits.” He tells her she’s all class and Gillian purrs that she aims to please him; all he has to do is say the word. As crazy and horrible as these two are separately, they’re kind of hot together. Gillian walks over to Gyp with her beautiful red hair all soft and wavy and kisses him and I just noticed that Gyp has the “Jimmy” haircut, which I know was popular at the time but is still a little creepy.
They briefly make out but when Gillian tries to take his coat off, Gyp stops her because only he does that. And he’s more than a little threatening when he says so. Of course, he was also wearing his gun so he might actually have a reason to be so flinty. But he still sloughs it off as a “little kink” of his. Yeah, we’ve seen your bigger kinks already, Gyp. As he walks away to carefully place his coat, Gillian lets out some of her disgust but as Gyp strips off his tie and gun holster she tells him she likes a man who’s careful about his appearance. But Gillian’s not as good at hiding her contempt and asks what he intends to do to her in a much more aggressive tone than she probably intended.
Not that Gyp notices. He just keeps undressing and essentially tells her he wants to brutally rape her until there’s nothing left of her but a wet spot and a hunk of hair, but he’s also starting to tear up so I really, really don’t want to know what kind of damage Gyp has. Because he also tells her it’s because she’s a worthless piece of shit and she’s going to get everything she deserves.
Gillian’s a little thrown by this but plays it off like it’s just a little role playing and braces herself by telling him she’s an ugly little ape. Gyp takes that last bit as Gillian mocking him so she further plays along, antagonizing him that everyone else does. But when Gyp grabs her by the throat Gillian agrees to let him do whatever he wants and this calms Gyp enough to walk off and take off his belt, holding it out for Gillian. She thinks he wants her to beat him but he just cracks his neck and she gets the hint.
