Once inside, one of the younger vets from Easter, Phil, comes over to greet Richard…and…Miss Sagorsky. Twice. Richard peevishly points that out, but Phil’s not a dick so he covers by saying he likes how it sounds, then offers them refreshments before walking off. Richard states that there’s punch like he’s saying it’s 8:00 and Julia assumes he’s saying he’d like some. He’s suggesting it for her, and she likes that suggestion. Then, so cute, Richard’s arm shoots right and she tells him he housebreaks easily. Hehe.
Tommy’s carrying a new drawing and walking down a new hallway in Gillian’s funhouse. The girls are hanging around in their lingerie and this can’t be good. One of them stops Tommy to ask if he’s looking for Josephine while the other points him to the exact room where she is. Tommy marches on we hear dirty, dirty sex sounds in case we weren’t sure what’s about to happen. POV switches to inside the room so we can see the old man, who bears a passing resemblance to Old Man Sagorsky which traumatized ME, taking Josephine doggie-style then Tommy’s sweet little face getting a scarring eyeful of old man ass before he runs off, terrified.
Some things once seen can never be unseen.
Nucky’s waking up in his suite and Margaret’s lolling at his bedside waiting to judge him and sigh. Nucky’s a little more lucid and trying to get back to business and Margaret’s judging and sighing that he needs to get some rest then snaps at him if he can hear her. Nucky’s more interested in learning if Emily liked the party and the pony. Margaret tees up for an epic eye roll and sigh but Nucky remembers that they didn’t get the pony because it would be ridiculous to keep a pony in the hotel. Finally, Nucky gives Margaret a reason to judge and sigh when he asks if she found the hummingbird earring she lost. No, but she’s sure it will turn up.
Blessedly, Eli and Owen are at the door. Eli asks if Nucky’s all right and Nucky says he’s fine but just wishes Eli would stop mumbling. Good luck with that. I love Shea Whigham but he barely opens his mouth to yell. Anyway, they don’t want to interrupt but they have some business to discuss. Eli offers to discuss it in the bedroom but Nucky wants to talk in the office. He gets up a little too fast, though. He has another episode, hearing the ringing and seeing Billie in the embers, then falls back on the bed.
Nucky’s regained enough of his faculties to realize that he probably should stay put. Margaret sighs that she’ll leave but Nucky stops her, telling her she belongs there. With him. Margaret and Owen share an awkwardly desperate look while Eli just stares at the floor. Smooth.
