You recognize that he's halfway across the country and has zero impact on anything else in the show.
Having Capone meet Jimmy in s1 was okay. Doing a half-assed job showing Capone's coming up story while at the same time taking scenes away from all the characters at the center of the action hurts the whole show. I would be much happier giving that time to Rothstein, Luciano, and Lansky, interesting historical figures who actually matter in the context of the show.
