Nucky’s sitting in the hallway as Margaret comes downstairs after putting the children to bed. They discuss how it was a nice day and the children enjoyed having something to do outside of their home. Then Margaret brings up how sweet June is. Nucky tells her that Eli and June have been together since he was 20 and she 17, and he’s never looked at anyone else…but slyly reminds us that with eight kids, they’ve kept themselves plenty busy.
This leads into the first fun, touching moment between them since…ever? Margaret seems impressed and pleased that Nucky can juggle, he picked it up from hanging around the midway, then tells him he can be charming and funny and generous…and Nucky looks smitten again, telling her he can say the same about her. Margaret gets shy and says she can’t juggle but Nucky offers to teach her, right now. Margaret absently says it’s too late, then gets a little sadder, saying she’s sorry but it’s too late and goes off to bed, leaving Nucky confused. I don’t think she was talking about the hour just then.
June’s in the dining room surrounded by all the good china they used for Easter dinner and Eli comes down to check on her. She’s dozing at the table so he gently wakes her to tell her to go to bed. She’s done enough for the day. June’s in a happy little haze because it was a good day, like the old days when Nucky used to visit regularly and everyone was happy. She liked Margaret, too, but tells Eli she’s not happy. Aw, she did take Margaret’s confession to heart. Eli kisses June on the head and tells her “It’s their problem.” Yeah, listen to your husband, June.
The phone rings and Eli walks off to answer it, telling June to go to bed. As she walks off Eli answers and it’s Nucky. He tells Eli that he should have commended him for being the only smart one about Tabor Heights. Eli apologizes for not being able to stop it, but Nucky says he put himself on the line and it “did not go unnoticed.” (Baby steps.) So Nucky’s making a change. Starting tomorrow, Eli will be running the warehouse with Mickey. Eli thanks Nucky who tells Eli that “the whole family” had a good time. Eli’s a little shocked at Nucky’s turnaround. Or trying to figure out if “whole family” meant Nucky, too, because he still wants Nucky’s approval.
Richard’s in his bedroom, looking at the “family portrait” with Tommy and Julia and pasting it down into his scrapbook. But this photo’s special so it goes into a real scrapbook and not placed willy nilly throughout his Bible. He tries to take a moment to look at the photo, but Gillian’s at the door. She’s back to her conservatively dressed madame persona, but she’s somber and distracted. She asks how Richard’s day with Tommy went and he manages a couple of half-lies that there were some ups and downs but it ended nicely and there wasn’t too much untoward vulgarity.
