This offer is met with a resound round of WTF faces from the assembled. Arnold starts to speak in circles that they all came down to AC out of respect for their dealings with Nucky and out of concern for his health but they really just wish him well. Nucky starts hearing the tinnitus, again, but that could be from trying to decipher Arnoldese with a concussion and asks what he means. What did he tell them. Arnold’s gone mute and turns to Meyer who tells Nucky that Arnold just told them that doing business with Nucky is more trouble than it’s worth.
Nucky tells Arnold that he’s letting emotions get in the way of his common sense. Arnold replies “Bitch, please,” but it sounds like “Have you known that to be a habit of mine?” then rounds up the boys to head back to NYC in the middle of the night since they won’t be staying. As they file out of the office and Nucky’s getting more desperate and whiny as he tells Arnold he will not forget this, a drum starts playing on the soundtrack.
Scene shifts to Gyp’s crew on the beach, loading up the trucks. Something catches Tonino and some random’s eye and they’re dumbstruck for a moment. Point of view shifts to Gyp. Wearing that hat like he’s a giant Napoleon, all proud of being a real general with his new hat.
He’s wearing a tricorn hat? Must be the third Thursday.
How such a buffoon can still be so frightening is some kind of entertainment alchemy between the writing, directing and acting because it’s all so over the top. I spend as much time shaking my head at Gyp’s ridiculousness as I do biting my lip over what awful thing he’ll do next. I think what’s happening to Nucky is called the chickens coming home to roost. Sucks to be Nuck. And while I’ve had a lot of sympathy for Margaret in the past, and still find her on average one of the few “good” people on Boardwalk Empire, she’s been working my last nerve with her sighing self-pity. It’s not like she didn’t know Nucky was a liar a cheat and a criminal in the first season. Her motivations may be completely human but most humans are annoying. On the plus side…Richard!
