While Regina keeps barking Nucky grabs the random’s shotgun but Eddie sees another random sneaking up behind. Feeling pretty good about himself, Nucky slams the door then shoots through it, leaving two softball-sized holes in the door. Really? That seems…big. Whatever, Nucky walks over and sees that he didn’t kill the random so he takes one last shot through one of the holes.
Third random sees this and grabs the shotgun barrel through the hole, trying to jam it with his handgun, and they wrestle briefly until the random’s gun falls and Nucky pushes him back to shoot him dead, too. Hat trick!
He shoots! He SCORES!
With all the extras dead, Nucky grabs his handgun and sees Eddie on the ground. He does remember to ask his valet if he’s all right and Eddie says “Ja” but looks a little winded. They sneak out the service entrance where two more dead bodies are strewn around Owen’s box. No time to dawdle, though, because Gyp and his goons are like roaches, and not the benevolent Mickey kind, and will just keep on coming.
Nucky heads to his baby blue Rolls but Eddie stops him because everyone knows his car. That’s why you don’t compensate for your shortcomings with flashy cars, Nucky. Nucky doesn’t think they have time to find other transportation but an extra walks over to his car, conveniently parked right in front of Nucky’s. They try to buy the car off the guy but he takes one look at their guns and the dead guys and just throws his keys at them as he hightails it out of there. Heh. Eddie’s groaning and winded but still Nucky’s loyal servant and he rushes Nucky in the car to leave.
Nucky’s talking through his plans about how they’ll head to Lolly’s and try to call Eli and Chalky from there as Eddie’s wobbling and gawping like a beached fish. Not that Nucky notices as he compliments Eddie on being right about the hired security and Eddie passes out behind the wheel. True to form, Nucky first assumes Eddie’s pulling some stunt and curses him as they have a minor crash. It’s only when Eddie apologizes that Nucky looks and sees he’s been shot. And still manages to get a little pissed at Eddie through his concern because that’s how their relationship works.
You couldn’t have told me you were shot before we drove off?
Gyp’s at the Ritz and carrying Regina like a football as Tonino (why is he still with Gyp??!??!) explains that they have men all over AC looking for Nucky. Gyp still has a fit but Tonino says that they think Nucky was hit because his car’s still there. Gyp suggests they head to the casino, the hospital, Nucky’s warehouse and Tonino teaches me yet another bygone racist term. (The writers on this show must have a dedicated Urban Dictionary page.)
