On the boardwalk, in Atlantic City
Nelson’s reading his bible as some rag plays in the background. His peace is broken by Lucy’s dulcet slurrings, telling him to bring home some lemons. He gets a deranged look in his eye but he’s Van Alden, that could mean anything. He walks into the kitchen to see Lucy, resplendent in her ninth month. Nelson doesn’t acknowledge her in any way, so she asks if he heard her and he repeats her lemon request.
Lucy then tells Nelson that she can’t get comfortable and he responds by telling her that Agent Clarkson is in the hospital with third degree burns over most of his body and he probably can’t get comfortable, either. What a charm. She apologizes meekly and he tells her he’ll pick up her lemons. This is still a more functional relationship than the one he has with Rose.
You can just feel his love.
A close up of a crucifix and a priest’s telling us we all sin, no matter how hard we try not to. Teddy’s looking at the crucifix, terrified, and not listening so the priest asks how can they avoid the FIRES of hell (Get it, fire starting Teddy?) if they can’t stop sinning? Margaret encourages Teddy and he says you say you’re sorry. The priest is a piece of work, though, so he asks Teddy what you do before you apologize. Teddy looks to Nucky for help, and I just noticed that this little boy could be Michael Pitt at seven. Nucky’s over-identification with Teddy makes sense, now. Nucky answers for him and says you confess first then apologize and that Teddy knows this.
Not satisfied that he’s spooked the kid enough, the priest goes into a hellfire and damnation speech about what happens when seven-year-olds sass their parents or laugh in church and he makes an anti-Semitic drive-by for added emphasis before saying Jesus can handle suffering for our sins but his father, God, gets mad and sends us to hell. Nucky calls the priest by his first name, Ed, and tells him to wrap this up. Nucky’s faith is admirable. Margaret and the priest flutter a bit about how important the meeting is, but Nucky grabs a smoke and leaves.
So remember Teddy. Jesus may forgive, but I never forget.
With Nucky gone, the priest lays into Teddy that seven is the age of reason in the Catholic Church because you need a solid foundation of guilt and shame before you start tackling the really good sins. The priest asks what else God does at that point besides watch over us. Teddy says he judges us and Margaret looks nauseated. Hmm. The priest tasks Margaret with preparing Teddy to confess his sins and for Margaret to confess as well. She’s all “Hold up there, padre,” but he says she needs to set a good example for the boy. She doesn’t look happy about that, what with living in sin with a gangster and obstructing justice. She’s going to have to say a lot of Hail Marys.
Thorogood’s in court presenting his brief to change the jurisdiction of Nucky’s trial but the judge, who bears a striking resemblance to Ed Koch, can’t focus on anything because Thorogood is wearing bright green wingtips with his pin striped suit. Mensch and Bishop are there watching the proceedings, but while Thorogood thinks he’s making a statement, the judge thinks he’s an asshole. The judge isn’t alone.
Douchebag, 20s style.
Thorogood states his case, in as smarmy and amateurish terms as possible, that Nucky violated the Mann Act when he brought in hookers from Philadelphia to service the fine constituency of Atlantic City. He’s trying to sound grand but landing on doofus. The judge has been bought off, though, so he rushes him along, cutting off Bishop as he tries to enter a statement. Thorogood continues annoying the judge with his verbosity claiming a case like that needs to be prosecuted to the full extent of federal law but once he shuts up the judge deliberates for five seconds before he rules in favor of Thorogood and reassigns Nucky’s case to Federal court.
Nucky’s looking at the Bible he bought Teddy for his first communion and gets wistful as he signs it “Your devoted Uncle Enoch,” then fusses over it as he gets his shoes shined. Nucky’s in a fairly good mood throughout, even as Eddie comes to tell him that George Remus is on the phone. Nucky takes the call and George Remus says that George Remus is calling to thank Nucky for the business from Jess Smith, Daugherty’s henchdog. Nucky says he was helping them both out.
Nucky doesn’t really grasp this Christian thing.
George Remus moves on to how George Remus is in clover, buying his liquor permits straight from the Attorney General’s office. Nucky’s not taking George Remus’ bait so he just asks when he can expect a finder’s fee for helping George Remus. George Remus doesn’t appreciate Nucky’s attitude so Nucky doubles down on it and points out that George Remus is in Ohio but didn’t know anyone in Harding’s administration and needed Nucky’s recommendation to grease the wheels. George Remus whines about the phone bill some more and Nucky can’t believe this. So George Remus makes an analogy about coming to Cincinnati and Nucky cuts him off asking who the hell wants to go to Cincinnati? (Cincinnatians, address your emails to Bathsheba Doran. She wrote the episode.) George Remus finds Nucky petty and resentful and Nucky tells George Remus to go fuck himself, and I do love listening to Steve Buscemi’s high, flat, Long Island nasal twang say the word “fuck.”
George Remus likes otters.
Done with George Remus, Nucky takes out a stack of bills and pulls out a ten to put in the Bible for Teddy. After some consideration, Nucky trades the ten for a twenty because he has to prove to himself that he’s not petty or cheap.
Leander “Uncle Jun” Whitlock is reading a quote from Alexander the Great about how he is indebted to his father for living and to his teacher for living well. Jimmy recognizes the quote and they all make connections between Jimmy and Alexander, while the Commodore sits in his wheel chair cranky and huffing, but since he can’t speak we don’t know if he’s just trying to get away from Gillian because, you know.
Now Louis, remember what happened the last time you tried to speak.
Jimmy asks about Nucky and Uncle Jun offers his admiration for how clever Nucky was his case. The Commodore kicks up a fuss, but he can’t speak so Gillian brings up his medicine as Jimmy asks the butler to take the geezer away. Gillian gets a concerned look on her face which is never good. Uncle Jun shows some empathy for her and calls the Commodore a “tough old bird,” to which Jimmy jokes that he thought Jun was talking about Gillian. Ooh, burn. Gillian’s not happy, but she’s not stupid, either, so she smiles it off.
Uncle Jun isn’t exactly pleased with how flip Jimmy is being so Jimmy puffs up his chest and says he’s been in bigger scrapes. Jun tells Jimmy he needs to be more measured and thoughtful now that the Commodore’s incapacitated and brings up the “business with Jackson Parkhurst.” Jimmy tells Jun to speak with the men responsible. Uncle Jun gets a straight up Uncle Jun look on his face and I miss the giant turtle glasses. He tells Jimmy no one misses the old cur, but he’s also alienating some very powerful allies. Gillian butts in and speaks in the royal “we” so Uncle Jun asks her to leave the men to speak in private.
Jimmy tells her it’s fine and as she leaves she tells him to tell her everything then gets inappropriate with Jimmy which makes Jimmy flinch. He explains to Uncle Jun that it’s just “something she does.” But Uncle Jun doesn’t really care what freaky shit Gillian and Jimmy are up to, he just wants to impart some wisdom to Jimmy that “Not every insult requires a response.” This is important.
Uncle Jun: Unlikely Voice of Reason
Jimmy wants to know how Uncle Jun would have handled it, clearly never having watched The Sopranos. Jun explains that while the Commodore has many virtues as a businessman, prudence is not one of them. But Nucky always took a bigger, longer view of things creating a machine that forced everyone to pay into it. Jimmy’s still not interested in hearing Nucky’s praises and points out that Uncle Jun doesn’t support Nucky, but Jun says it doesn’t stop him from admiring Nucky’s skill. Jimmy doesn’t think there’s much skill in putting the squeeze on people but Jun tells him not to judge until he’s been in Nucky’s place. Jimmy says he plans to see through what he started and Uncle Jun says he wanted to hear Jimmy say he wants to win. This conversation makes no sense so they stare at each other.
Lucy’s cleaning up after breakfast when her water breaks. Never the most organized or rational person under the best circumstances, she just falls back in the chair and cries because she knows she’s screwed without a phone or friends in the building.
This woman is ready to become a mother.
Eddie’s popping a bottle of Moët and giving Thorogood the side eye because Thorogood’s bragging about how awesome he was, never quite getting that he could have taken a dump and gotten the jurisdiction changed. He’s bragging about how great it felt and his father said it would be like that, but no one knows or cares who Thorogood’s father is. Nucky calls Daugherty with the news then they smarm and grease all over each other.
Nucky tells Thorogood that Daugherty wants Nucky to take care of him and asks what he wants. He wants hookers but he makes a tortured analogy about being an All-American boy. So Nucky says they’ll order him some apple pie. He asks for cherry a la mode…if you get his drift…and Nucky hilariously just says no but Eddie will set him up. They walk off and with Thorogood’s clammy hand on his shoulder Eddie says “Ja, I understand. You want schlampen,” which I am told is German slang for “sluts.” HA! As they walk to the elevator Eddie looks at Thorogood’s hand like it’s a sack full of cooties sitting on his shoulder.
I love Eddie.
Margaret and Teddy come home. Owen’s carrying Teddy over his shoulder and Margaret’s practically giddy when Owen flirtily asks where to put the “bag of potatoes.” Except when she turns around she sees he was talking to Katie and, damn, her facial expression goes from zero to bitch in a tenth of a second. Margaret excuses Owen but before he leaves he takes a moment to compliment Katie, leaving the young maid to flutter around as Margaret curses her under her breath. As Owen leaves, he makes a “Good grief” face behind Margaret’s back to amuse Katie.
Katie turns to leave but Margaret hasn’t flung her weight around today so she asks to speak with the young maid. Margaret starts off bringing up how Katie is around Owen and Katie says he’s quite handsome but then Margaret moves in for the kill saying it’s more than just that. When Katie says she doesn’t know what Margaret means, Margaret plays the bitch card and tells the poor girl not to play coy because it doesn’t suit her. I liked Margaret more when she was a badass and not the judgmental lady of the manor. Then she lies through her teeth and pretends that she’s offended by Katie and Owen’s behavior because of the children, and not because she’s become a seething ball of jealousy. Finished putting the girl in her place, Margaret walks off and Katie rolls her big brown eyes so hard I’m surprised they didn’t fall out of her head.
Not everyone thinks Margaret’s awesome.
Van Alden’s in a hospital corridor as a nurse comes towards him with a baby, but psych. He’s there to see Clarkson, the injured agent. Ridden with guilt, he looks at the poor agent as Supervisor Elliot and Agent Sawicki come in. Elliot is taken aback and Nelson starts preaching, but Elliot cuts him off with a flip comment about Clarkson’s love of the lord being a one-sided relationship. Nelson puts the supervisor in his place and, to his credit, the supervisor realizes he crossed a line.
As Nelson prays over Clarkson, the ailing agent has a reaction, getting agitated and breathing heavily. Van Alden thinks it’s a sign from God, but as Clarkson starts accusing Nelson and saying he knows what he did, it’s not exactly he sign Nelson was hoping for. Van Alden keeps it together long enough to leave to get the doctor then have a good freak out in the hallway.
Nucky’s meeting in his office with the various players who will bring his liquor in from Philadelphia including Rothstein, McCoy, Waxy Gordon, Chalky White…and Chaim from Manny’s butcher shop, which doesn’t seem right. They go over logistics and Nucky wants to make sure that there will be no Coast Guard interference. Arnold talks like Arnold and calls Waxy “Mr. Gordon,” which doesn’t fly in Philadelphia, I guess, but Waxy says it’s why they pay him. Waxy says his men will move and protect the shipment to the Atlantic City border. Charlie’s like “For 20% they can’t go those last few miles,” but the guys from Philadelphia question Charlie’s manhood. We’ve seen it fellas. It’s just fine. Waxy and Chalky start getting in on the round of bully Luciano and Lansky and the two young men agree to the terms with much peeve but no argument.
Lucy’s still having a baby at home with no phone or help from friends or a doctor and, man, things were rough in the 20s. She sees a little boy brushing his teeth in the apartment across the alley and asks him to get his mom. But she’s so frantic that he closes the curtains. Denied!
This child has a future in middle management.
A beautifully CGI’d shot of the boardwalk at night takes us to Jimmy and Angela on a date, looking at radios and talking about their virtues (You can listen to classics without buying records! Immigrants can teach themselves English!) As Angela keeps plugging away, Jimmy sees Nucky with Chaim, and he’s none too pleased. But Jimmy kind of stands out in a crowd with his blond hair and Holly Hobby eyes, so he kisses Angela to shield his face while he watches Chaim walk off. Angela doesn’t realize she was just a ploy, so she gets dreamy and asks why he kissed her. Jimmy lies that the music got to him. Poor Angela.
This is the most passion Jimmy’s shown Angela since he told her about French blow jobs.
Van Alden feels trapped and is going crazier than normal. (Consider that…) He calls Rose in the middle of the night. Or 11:00 pm, which is the middle of the night for Rose. Nelson starts off well enough, telling Rose about Clarkson and the explosion and that he feels guilty about it, that it should have been him there, and Rose is sweet and comforting to him. But this is Van Alden and those wheels have come off the tracks. He’s gasping and telling Rose that everything he’s done is because he loves her. She responds by telling him he’s frightening her. Nelson will not be swayed, though, and forges on saying he’s sinned and Clarkson is paying for those sins. Then he says he’s made his peace and is no longer fit for her or his badge. With a brusque “I love you,” (such the romantic) he hangs up on her.
Nucky and Margaret are having the dreariest sex. Hope the money’s worth it, Peggy. Margaret wonders if he no longer finds her attractive, but that’s not it. It’s his Madonna/whore complex, silly. With that settled, Nucky wonders what else is on her mind and Margaret tells him that the priest, Father Brennan, wants her to make confession. Nucky compares the priest to a shoe salesman and his faith really never ceases to inspire. Margaret tells him it’s just to set a good example for Teddy.
Nucky segues to what Margaret’s going to say and she coys that it’s between her and God. Nucky adds “and Father Brennan,” and I love that in 1921 Margaret thinks the discussion ends when she says Brennan’s a priest and there’s a sacred trust. Nucky tells her she has more faith in the church than he does and she obviouses that that’s the point of a church.
Bless me Father for I have sinned, but Owen’s a hot piece of ass.
As Margaret excuses herself to the bathroom Nucky asks her how “Catholic” she is. Heh. She doesn’t get where he’s going so he wants to know exactly what she plans on saying about their relationship, since she is complicit in his crimes with her obstruction of justice. Margaret just tells him if he feels guilty to take it up with the priest.
Jimmy’s having breakfast with the family when he gets a call from a man that Angela thinks is named “Onion.” It’s Horvitz, calling himself Munya. Jimmy manages not to sound dead when he greets his new “friend” but asks Angela and Tommy to finish eating in the other room. Once he’s alone, though, Jimmy’s mood turns back to its normal sour and he wants to know what Manny’s game is. Manny’s in the dark and says Jimmy’s the one who owes him. Jimmy tells Manny about seeing Chaim with Nucky and Waxy Gordon, thinking that Manny’s cutting a new deal with Nucky, but Manny’s demeanor says Chaim’s days are numbered.
Jimmy’s got some guns.
Owen comes by the house to pick up Nucky as Margaret’s sweeping up Corn Flakes. He wonders why Katie isn’t sweeping so Margaret tells him she took the children to the market. Charlie thinks he can joke around with Margaret and asks if she’s selling them but she’s too consumed with lust and guilt so she just corrects him that her name is “Mrs. Schroeder.” Wondering exactly how he pissed her off now, she tells him he called her “Mrs. Thompson,” and he apologizes because he forgot she was Nucky’s mistress since she has such a huge stick lodged up her ass. Although that last part is probably my interpretation.
Margaret’s still cranky, so Owen brings up Katie and how she told him about the conversation and takes responsibility for their behavior. Including the scream? Margaret tells him he needs to respect Katie and he’s all Eddie Haskell about what a lovely girl she is so Margaret asks him if he’s “in the habit of toying with women.” He sasses her that it’s not a “habit,” and shows that it’s really more of a talent when he takes the broom from her, making sure to touch both her hands in the process. Margaret’s writing her confession in her head as he sweeps and Nucky comes in, telling Owen they needs to leave because he’s late. As Nucky walks off Owen stops behind Margaret to hold her by the shoulders and tell her he’s “always happy to be of service.” See, not a habit a talent.
You can ask Katie for a reference.
Lucy’s still all alone and it’s the next morning. She has a break in the contractions and prepares herself to give birth by herself. She pulls her hair back and the bedspread and sheets up by the pillows to lay down a towel. Propped up and supported, she feel another contraction.
Daugherty is on the phone smoking a cigar, explaining what a fez is and generally being the slimiest slug in DC when he gets a visit from Senator Edge, aka Geoffrey Pierson aka the go-to actor when a cable show needs a serious asshole. Edge sits down with Daugherty and sounds like he’s congratulating Daugherty on establishing the Bureau of Veterans Affairs but cuts straight to accusing Daugherty of using a noble cause like veteran’s affairs to bilk the government out of money. Daugherty protests but Edge says a “constituent” is encouraging an investigation into the matter, so Daugherty asks what else this “constituent” wants. Nucky’s head! The “constituent” would like the patsy prosecutor assigned to Nucky’s case to be replaced by a more serious one, and if that happens, Edge will lose interest in investigating the corruption charges. Daugherty just puffs on his cigar.
So there’s this Cuban woman, La Guerta? I fuck with her just for kicks.
Jimmy’s with Manny, who’s giving his “coulda, woulda, shoulda” speech about how he wanted to be an actor. But, dude, you look like William Forsythe. That’s a face only a Coen could love. After that bit of character development, Manny takes Jimmy into his freezer, where he has Chaim hanging upside down from a meat hook. Jimmy’s wondering what’s going on, so Manny says he wants Jimmy to hear from Chaim why he was in AC. But Chaim’s having difficulty speaking so Manny’s translating his garbled grunts as Chaim’s a disloyal piece of shit who was spying on Manny for Waxy. Jimmy wants to know why Waxy was at the Ritz. As Manny sharpens a very large knife in the background, Chaim says they were in AC to discuss bringing liquor in through Philadelphia. Jimmy wants to know why Nucky needs Waxy, and Chaim says for protection.
Then Manny tells Jimmy the information good, and if he kills Chaim it’s free, too. Jimmy doesn’t want to kill Chaim. But Manny can’t do it because Chaim’s injured which makes him treyf and Manny’s kosher. Jimmy tries to walk off, but Manny questions his manhood by asking if he’s “squeamish” and that’s enough for Jimmy. He trades his hat for Manny’s knife and slits Chaim’s throat. Didn’t Jimmy kill like five Irish gangsters in Chicago? He’s getting soft.
You’re not Spiderman.
Margaret and Teddy are waiting to make confession and soon it’s Margaret’s turn. At first she tries to slough it off, saying she will not confess but Father Brennan Catholic guilts her with a “when you sin you fracture your relationship with God,” and Margaret spills about how she is lusting in her heart. Father Brennan assumes she is talking about Nucky and asks if “this man provides for her and her children,” but she says no, it’s his hot young stud driver, Owen.
Nucky’s getting the news from Daugherty that Thorogood’s being replaced with a real prosecutor at Edge’s request. Nucky’s dumbstruck that a no-name senator like Edge would hold so much sway. Daugherty says that Edge threatened to investigate him and Nucky wants to know how much shit Daugherty could stir up in three months. A lot, Nucky. Nucky thinks he still runs things and wants to know who the new prosecutor is. Daugherty doesn’t have a name, but tries to placate Nucky by pointing out he already got him Thorogood. Nucky isn’t placated and reminds Daugherty that his bony ass (I might have editorialized) is on the line, but so is Daugherty’s and he’s going to save his fat one first.
Tell me again why I bought the President?
Thorogood and his green shoes are in his suite at the Ritz entertaining two schlampen when Eddie and a hotel servant come in to tell Chip that he has five minutes to get dressed and get out. Thorogood thinks it’s a joke, but Eddie imperiously informs him it is no joke, then the other servant tells Thorogood “five minutes” and throws his ugly green shoes at him. Sucks when you think you’re awesome and find out you’re a pawn.
Lucy’s still alone, still having the baby but she’s in the final stretch. As a jaunty little tune plays on the soundtrack, Lucy’s crying and sweating and looking sad while she pushes and pushes. One last cry from Lucy is met by a baby’s scream but let’s forget that the baby’s lungs needed to be cleared, Lucy’s a mom!
Motherhood agrees with Lucy.
Supervisor Elliot rather insensitively smokes a cigarette next to Clarkson’s bed (seriously, dude) and Van Alden returns. Nelson is even more wracked with guilt and starts talking about what a good and honest man Clarkson is. Then Nelson says it should be him and he needs to speak with Elliot, but Clarkson’s talking again, saying the same thing he said to Nelson. Turns out it wasn’t a message from God, it was Clarkson reliving a childhood memory about someone stealing pie because he’s delirious. D’oh. Nelson realizes he was about to make a HUGE mistake and with all the cool and grace we’ve come to expect from Nelson practically does a Road Runner zip out of the room.
Nelson returns to the apartment with a bag of lemons to see the mess Lucy made when her water broke. Lucy’s not responding so he walks back to his bedroom to see Lucy in bed, cuddled up to the baby. Nelson greets this with an “I..I…brought lemons,” and it’s strangely sweet because he really hasn’t a clue about normal human interaction. Lucy responds that she did it all herself and that the baby is a girl. Nelson, I’m assuming, is beside himself with emotion because his face twitches and his brow furrows, but he just walks off, telling Lucy he’ll get a doctor. She’s too euphoric to care about what a head case Nelson is and coos and kisses the sweet little girl. Babies make everything better.
Uh oh…it’s night on a back country road and I remember the series premiere so I know nothing good ever comes of that. It’s the liquor caravan and Lansky’s riding in a car with some day player, checking his watch, when they blow a tire. As the day player sits around, Lansky’s waving his gun because he may be young but he isn’t stupid. Charlie comes up asking what happened and the day player sasses him while Lansky says they ran over a nail and blew a tire. Charlie notices it wasn’t a nail right before they start taking fire, and as one extra gets shot Charlie and the day player join Lansky behind the car.
As the car gets shot up, Charlie takes a few shots of his own, but we see Richard’s ubiquitous newsboy hat run into frame, so it’s probably best that they stop. More gunfire and we see Jimmy’s homburg run through the trees shooting. This continues until there’s a break and Jimmy’s familiar, “dead inside” drone tells them to drop their weapons. Charlie recognizes that drone and yells out “DAH-MA-DEE?” His drone isn’t as familiar so Jimmy wants to know who it is. Charlie calls himself “Lucky” but Jimmy doesn’t know him by that and keeps asking, so Charlie responds “IT’S LUCIANO, GODDAMMIT.” He’s so cool under pressure, that Charlie.
After some minor hesitation so Jimmy can cock his gun in case he needs to shoot, they all step out of the shadows creating another lovely tableau for a tense scene. All the men are holding guns and explaining the situation but when Manny realizes that tiny Lansky and goofy Luciano are the muscle, Richard speaks on behalf of all of us when he says “I don’t. Fuckin’ believe this.” HA. Luciano keeps talking because he never wanted this gig in the first place, and Jimmy’s less interested in killing them than in being disgusted with Nucky. Lansky once again shows why he’s the alpha by reproposing the offer he made Jimmy and more or less saying “We’re the future, screw the past. Booze and junk for everyone!”
Small but mighty
Manny’s still nursing the Waxy Gordon wound. Jimmy repeats Uncle Jun’s advice that “Not every insult requires a response,” but Manny’s out the money he gave Jimmy up front so Jimmy negotiates that they’ll advance Jimmy the money owed Manny. Luciano agrees and Jimmy tells Manny that it’s not good business to kill everyone, which shouldn’t need explaining. The young’uns talk about how they’ll make the delivery then meet up away from the geezers to figure out how to take it all. Lansky calls Rothstein and Nucky the past, but the day player says “Not Waxy Gordon,” and Manny’s been itching too long to kill someone so he shoots the day player.
Nelson returns with the doctor and sees the lemons in a bowl. The floor’s been cleaned and the sheets are soaking in the sink. This should be good news, except Lucy wasn’t in any shape to clean up. Nelson walks back to the bedroom and is horrified to see Rose’s bun sitting with Lucy. She’s eerily calm and Nelson’s shuffling in terror. In the hall Rose tells Nelson that his batshittiness the night before worried her so she took the first train she could and Agent Sawicki gave her the address.
Rose tries to hold it together but when Nelson tells her he did it all for them and the baby is for her, even Rose realizes what a freak Nelson is and beats the shit out of him, pounding his chest and slamming his head against the wall. He manages to subdue her by grabbing her wrists and pushing her against the opposite wall, but she just bites his wrist and runs off. Wow, Rose. Tip of the hat because that was awesome. Nelson holds his wrist and contemplates all the ways he’s well and truly screwed.
Teddy’s getting his communion portrait taken as Nucky and Margaret proudly look on, discussing her confession. He jokes that her soul is pure and she agrees. Then he asks what she ended up saying as Owen walks in. Margaret gets flustered and tells Nucky nothing that needs concern him. Lillian brings in little Emily and as they all look at Teddy in his white knickers and waist coat, Margaret gets a far off, dissatisfied look on her face. Lust or money, lust or money, which one do you choose Margaret?
Looks like Margaret’s not the only one lusting.
So which does Margaret choose? And does Nucky find out? Or is Nucky too busy actually trying to stay out of jail instead of buying his way out to even notice Owen? And the return on Gillian and Lucky! The second half of the season looks promising.
