Eddie needs Margaret’s attention so she sighs at Teddy to make his bed before walking off. Seriously, does she not remember who she was a few years earlier? Does she not remember her own machinations that put her in this position? Regardless, Eddie just wants to let her know the decorations will be delivered shortly so she can sigh, again, and tell Eddie the furniture needs to be moved from the living room. Eddie says he’ll have the staff do it, because Eddie’s nothing if not accommodating, and Margaret sighs. Again.
Then she sees that Teddy didn’t make his bed in the 30 seconds she was talking to Eddie and yells at him. He doesn’t see the point, since the maid will do it, but Margaret tells him there won’t always be maids. Isn’t that why she’s been committing her own felonies, like stealing and destroying evidence and marrying Nucky to get out of testifying? So there will, in fact, always be maids? Didn’t Margaret start out with promise this season? Hadn’t she accepted that happiness didn’t lie with Nucky or his wealth and security but in herself and that’s why, I thought, she was so involved at the hospital? Wasn’t she looking to fly and find greater meaning to her life? Or was the whole hospital storyline a set up to get her a diaphragm? And do all roads have to lead to Owen’s dong and discontent for her? I have questions.
Whatever, Scruffy Regina lets out a pretty mild bark and Margaret has a hissy that they’re driving her mad and walks out and into the suite’s foyer where a bunch of extras are gathered. Margaret wants to know where Owen is. (Of course she does…SIGH.) He’s across the hall in Nucky’s office with a bunch more extras. She asks to speak with Owen, alone, and you know I’ve had it with Margaret when Owen’s the sympathetic one in the scene. He asks after the children and she snits that it’s “tetchy” and when he says he can’t blame them she snots that it’s not a wandering vagrant this time. Owen admits it was Gyp but Margaret’s just there to be a pain in the ass.
Owen’s much kinder and tells her it won’t last forever but before she can get a good head of peeve going Owen starts talking about them…but blessedly, Nucky strolls in, in his silk robe, to break up the scene. Margaret asks what the doctor said and Nucky says he has impetigo. Margaret’s incredulous, but Nucky recovers quickly and says might as well, since the doctor’s always wrong, anyway. Then Nucky walks over to pour himself a whiskey so Margaret can judge him but Nucky’s too addled to care. He can’t hear her and blames Margaret for muttering.
