Happy Cyber Monday, Gasmii! And there’s a shitstorm brewing in Atlantic City!
It’s mere hours after last week’s special delivery and Nucky’s scrambling. He’s gotten Margaret and the kids out of town but he’s trying to find Chalky and Eli before Masseria’s goons find him. No such luck, but at least he still has Eddie who’s not nearly as dumb as he looks and can spot a hoary old movie trope from a mile away when the phone line’s dead, saving himself and Nucky. Sorta.
Gyp’s back in AC and wreaking havoc, leading Nucky to seek refuge at Chalky’s sweet little beach hideaway. Chalky’s not too thrilled to see Nucky, what with all the recent, thinly-veiled racism, but men like Chalky don’t get to where they are by letting their emotions get the better of them, so he makes a vague and ever-changing deal with Nucky to take care of him and Eddie while Gyp’s turning over every stone looking for Nucky. Gyp pays Chalky a little visit and offers him a tidy sum of cash for Nucky, making their relationship a whole lot more even than when the episode started. And in Dunn Pernsley news, he very nearly explodes from excitement over all the mayhem he can cause.
With Nucky in hiding, Gyp decides to set up shop in Gillian’s “health resort.” His goons didn’t get the message, though, so they treat it like a common whorehouse. This tweaks every last one of Gillian’s vengeance demon nerves and she takes it out on Richard since she hasn’t a clue of any of his many, many gifts and thinks he’s just some poor sap Jimmy pitied and she can bully. She thinks wrong.
Meanwhile in New York Luciano gets antsy to make a drug deal, what with them sitting on 50 pounds, and makes a terrible mistake instead. I’m sure somewhere on the Upper East Side Arnold can’t eat his apple cake because of this development.
And we end with Nucky trying to flee Atlantic City until he realizes he’s the star of the show and decides he’s going to fight back, with Chalky’s help. Then senselessly involves Willie in the whole mess since he couldn’t get a hold of Eli and figures the whole family owes him? Whatever, while Nucky’s holed up in the lumberyard Willie’s just kind of walking around with a target on his back. When a convoy of cars show up, it suddenly dawns on Nucky that it’s probably best not to get his nephew killed if he wants Eli to remain loyal and tries to protect the boy from the 10 or so cars that drove up by…standing in front of him. Samrt move, Nucky. Luckily for Nucky, the convoy was just Chalky’s men bringing in Eli who came with backup.
Full recap in a few days. Until then, you can catch up on the last recap here.
