Re: Boardwalk Empire: Season 3

I was considering waiting until the end of the season and knocking the rest of it out at once, but this last ep got me back on board to go week by week.

Well he was sec of treas IRL for like another decade, so theres plenty of time left, theres that.

He also was almost impeached AND tried for tax evasion, so its easy to slide him into this universe for the long haul.

Or maybe we see him once more...who knows. I love the character though.

Not sure if this needs to be spoilered. From the Inside the Episode segment:

This has to do with a real life death of a periphery character:

I thought the Van Alden scene was exceptionally well done if you're willing to overlook the fact that the iron would never be on.

my speculation:
Nucky, now desperate, will turn to Harrow to assassinate Rosseti (and possibly Joe the boss).

Makes sense. There going to have to cut the serpents head off now.

Harrow's story line at the whore house seems to be coming to an end too.

That would be perfect. Should we read anything into Torrio not being there? Any chance Capone gets dragged into this?

Re: Boardwalk Empire: Season 3

Guys you can fact check your theories with actual history btw. I don't know if you want to do that, but you can.

Nuck going to Richard for help seems highly likely. He takes orders from a woman he has zero respect for right now, although he does that so he can be with the kid.

Spoiler:


I really didn't like Chalky tonight, they had him "aww shucking" to an embarrassing level.

That scene in the bedroom was weird. looked like margaret was getting hawt in the **** when nuck was talking dirty italian entrails.

Re: Boardwalk Empire: Season 3

The Chalky stuff was weird. Thought there were going to be fireworks when Nucky kicked all the bosses out of his office and Chalky didn't leave shortly after being called uppity. Nothing came of it though. Sometimes I think they insert Chalky into scenes just to remind the audience he exists.

Re: Boardwalk Empire: Season 3

the Chalky addition felt tacked on like always. I know he's part of the braintrust, but it's like they said "haha, what if Chalky was there and Nucky mistook him for the shoeshine guy?" I think they made a mistake hiring a semi-famous actor for that role, b/c they feel like they have this iconic HBO actor and they need to shoehorn him in from time to time... then again, im probably just talking out of my ass


Gillian is completely expendable at this point, no? Harrow shooting her one time?

Harrow, yeah, one time is enough. If it were anyone else doing it, I'd say shoot her multiple times to be sure.

Re: Boardwalk Empire: Season 3

INT. GILLIAN'S BEDROOM - NIGHT

Richard enters to find a nude Gillian sulking at her vanity.

GILLIAN
Richard, blah blah blah, Tommy, blah blah blah...

Richard pulls a shotgun from behind his back, ***** it, FIRES into Gillian's face.

RICHARD
(sucks in saliva)
Now you know... how it feels.



One time!

When Masseria is with Gyp at the bench front, he clearly tells Gyp that his problems are his problems.
