I guess we just have a completely different read on their relationship. I do agree that the show portrayed Nucky as being in strongly love with her (even though this was done with no built up), but as far as Billy,never really have I got a sense that she truly cared about Nucky, she just seemed to want Nuggy around and nothing more . Otherwise why would she party w/out him all the time, and flirt with other men right in front of Nucky's face.
Sometimes I wonder if I am watching the same show as other folks. Did you not pay attention to the scenes with just Nucky and her in the last couple of episodes before she died?

I think hotdogfallacy has demonstrated that he doesn't really watch anything in the show that isn't killing.

I think Eli will somehow save Nucky from Gyp, and die doing so...although IRL Alf Johnson(Enoch Johnson's Bro) lived longer. And somehow this scene will end up being at the whorehouse, with Harrow wiping out Gyp and Jillian around the same time. So Eli will die a hero, Nucky will make his son his new driver since his cheauffer ends up dying. Nucky and Capone will realize Harrow's pure badassness and he will become one of their right hand men...more likely Capone since Harrow was planning on taking Tommy and Julia and leaving town, so why not a new start in Chicago helping Capone become Capone. Season 4 will feature Margaret somehow gaining power and will try to ruin Nucky and send him to prison.

i do not understand the argument you are making. if that scene isn't about Eddy, then he can just die and there is no need to bring a doctor in.

The episode before she died, she wans't featured I believe and when she died is when they seemed to finally gotten close. Can you list some things I missed or something?

I remember thinking how ridiculous it was when Nucky agreed to pay Means 40k to kill the guy.

I remember someone writing in this thread once that it seems they may purposely inflate prices at times on this show since it would seem so trivial by today's standards.

Probably why they have gyp say that line about 25k being a fortune to (forget what racist term he used).

Maybe I remembered wrong, but I thought you said something along the lines of "I enjoy the violence and don't care for the character exposition." Or at least have expressed that you find the parts of the show that don't explicitly move the plot forward boring.

You remembered right. He was also complaining about the way they handled Chalkys Dr. 'Unnecessary and lazy' I believe.

Its pretty common to write in a bigger figure when dealing with money in period pieces so that the audience can relate better.

Re: Boardwalk Empire: Season 3

i thought that having his future son in law in the house with nucky was part of the reason that chalky refused to let gyp in. He didn't want his son in law getting any more mixed up than he already was at the time.

I don't know, I'd watch both a Chicago and NY spin off series.

I think the impact would have been pretty much the same if the son in law had never existed and they brought in a random straight-laced black doctor for the episode.

I think the problem is that in the prior seasons you didn't have everything tie together as well, so the audience had no faith that the early stuff this season had much value to the bigger story.

I wonder how much perception changes if we go back and watch those eps knowing that the stuff with the son-in-law isn't a one off story.

This will sound awful- but one of the things that frustrates me about this show (more it's fans really) is that there's enough badass moments to it that it starts to pick up the fanbase that just wants to see Richard cap fools and has no time for the non-gangster plot elements. Then suddenly the thread has to deal with people who are watching a show that isn't really the show they want it to be.
