Over in Richard’s room, he’s once again at his desk in his undershirt so, time to scrapbook with Richard! Except he’s actually looking at his family photos. He stops on a photo of him and Emma from 1916 and props it up on his desk to remember how close they were before the war shattered him.
The oldest 17-year-olds, ever.
Margaret’s lurking through the house and out to the greenhouse with the shotgun. She tells whoever is there to freeze, but it’s just Owen so she didn’t even have to hector poor Katy who isn’t even her maid, anymore. He’s there because Nucky was concerned and Owen knew Margaret sent away her bodyguard. You know, she’s 30 not three. She should know by now there are consequences to her actions.
They have a nonsensical conversation where they just state the obvious back and forth then leave the greenhouse so Margaret can ask if there even was a vagrant to take care of. Owen condescends that he smelled real enough leading Margaret to admit to punishing Teddy for it. Owen’s being too kind to her considering what a whiny yet entitled pain in the ass she’s been all episode. She continues complaining about how she did what she thought was right and now look where she is. How did she end up there? By pushing Lucy out of the way and marrying Nucky instead of testifying for Randolph. Don’t play the helpless victim, Margaret. You haven’t the practice.
Who knew when I married a rich man I knew was shady and corrupt that I’d end up in danger?
Then she manipulates Owen into telling her she’s prettier than Katy which he does but claims Katy has him on a leash. Really? Wasn’t she sleeping while he was lurking around Margaret’s backyard? Wasn’t she not in the least bit angry or jealous when Margaret called? I get that I’m supposed to find them “smoking” but so much of this conversation is padding that makes them both look like assholes. Like how they’re now making fun of young Katy and her kewpie dolls because it’s so much better to be an accomplice to murder and adulteress or a murderer and thug than to collect dolls.
Owen tries to leave but Margaret’s not finished being awful this episode so she tells him to wait. He thinks it’s unwise but she hasn’t been laid in over a year, and Dr. Mason’s got a fiancée, so her murdering husband’s henchdog will do just fine. As some old Irish song about Maggie starts up on the soundtrack they classily head back into the burned out greenhouse to have an energetic quickie up against a splintery workbench because it’s love.
