Richard knocks and…oh my god, this is too cute…asks Tommy how he looks. Tommy gives him the once over then tells him to fix his glasses. Julia comes to the door and Richard announces that he’s there. You don’t say, Richard. He starts twitching so Julia introduces herself to Tommy who charms her because he really is the cutest (two) kid(s) on the show. Then Richard shoves the lilies at Julia with an alluring “HERE.” Silver-tongued devil, that Harrow. Julia’s still flattered until her father kills the moment by asking if the flowers are for him.
You’re no me, but you look aw’right.
Eli and Nucky are on Eli’s gorgeous porch and avoiding eye contact while Nucky lights up a cigarette. Eli wants to talk about the shipments but Nucky just wants to get loaded. Except, Eli promised June he wouldn’t drink before sundown and never in the house. Nucky looks like someone told him he was getting a prostate exam but Eli points out that it helps keep his head clear. Nucky gets cranky so Eli calms things by telling Nucky he’s glad he came. They don’t need to talk at all, he just wants the two families to have a nice dinner. Even Nucky wouldn’t dick his way out of that.
Emily’s saying grace. with a little prompting from Margaret, because she’s the smart little Schroeder, and she’s wearing a junior string of pearls to match Margaret’s grown up version. Margaret may be flinty but she is passing down her good, if conservative, taste. As soon as the prayer is finished Eli and one of his sons grab for the rolls but June stops them. She has something she’d like to say. She thanks Nucky for all he’s done for them and she’s grateful to have him back in their home, with his new family.
Then June goes off on a tangent about how she loves spring because things begin to grow after being so gray and that for them all to gather on such a day…she can’t finish because she’s overcome by emotion. Eli gently wipes her tear away and kisses June, telling her how beautiful her words were, as the camera focuses first Nucky on then on Margaret, both stern-faced, as they watch this touching and honest expression of love and devotion. June breaks up their little moment by chiding that they should eat the soup before it gets cold.
Wait. Did I pick the wrong Thompson?
Over at the Sagorskys one of the vets says a rather quick and no nonsense grace so old man Sagorsky, Paul, asks if Tommy liked it. It was okay. Then he wants to know who the hell Tommy even is and why he’s there. Julia gets fluttery with embarrassment but bless Tommy, he’s the oldest six-year-old, ever (that’s probably from getting drunk with Gran when he was three), he just tells Paul that “mama” (grrr) is sick so they came there for Easter dinner.
