I really am a huge fan of this show. HBO continues to hit home runs, and this one is no exception.
GREAT episode tonight. getting better with the rise of Capone. the only thing is the previews just make me more anxious for next week
im curious to know what happens to Mrs. Schroder next week when in the previews it looks like Nucky went to her house....
this show keeps getting better and better. i love the fact there are about 3 different plots to this show. i love these shows/movies.
organized crime, lots going on. LOVE IT. good job HBO!!!
This is why I like these kinds of serialized dramas. They really evolve the characters over time.
I think she realized what he is early on, but put it aside because he was such a good benefactor. She probably knows that Nucky was behind her husband's death. She sounds like she's Irish, and those people came from a pretty hard past. She's not as naive as she comes off at first.
Diming out the beer warehouse to the feds was more of a temper trantrum because he spurned her advances, than any anti-booze idealism.
Now, his reaction isn't what I expected. He knew she dropped the dime on him, and instead of dealing with her the way he normally might, he slipped her his Micky D.
Maybe he got turned on by her manipulation of events?

I thought last night's episode was great...despite the lack of Chalky.
I loved Nucky's threat to Lucky Luciano..."ARE YOU TRYING TO SASS ME YOU GREASY LITTLE C$*&SUCKER?!?!"

i almost gave up on this show, but now its starting to pick up the pace
nucky's giving it to margaret to keep her mouth shut. he knew what she wanted so he gave it to her, now he can sort of control her actions. on the other hand, nucky also cant deny that he likes her, so "slipping her his micky D" is a win-win situation. what a lucky/sneaky ba$tard
i cant believe that one chick is jimmy's mom. she looks wayyy too young, and the way she interacts with jimmy is a little weird for him to be her son. heck, even that dude that was sent to find jimmy was fooled, as he thought she was his wife.
Agent Van Alden is one sick SOB.
Paraphasing here but, Maybe your cunny isn't all its cracked up to be
And I think the line was, "Maybe your cunny isn't the draw that you think it is."
I kind of hope that Margaret really ensnares Nucky and becomes his wife or partner. She's going to have to make a choice to wilt under her shame as a "concubine" or embrace it and gain power from her position. I think that would be some really interesting character development.
The guy is totally repressed. He's stiff and cold and excruciatingly polite to his wife. Probably too embarrassed or ashamed to even have sex with her.
Self-flagellation might serve two roles for him; penance for his "un-Christian thoughts" w/re to Margaret, and/or he's a masochist and it gets him off.
Yeah, they never speak of who Jimmy's father is but I guess with a mother like his it's easy not to know. Jimmy is a baaaaaad man.
Van Alden is definitely a strange cat. I agree with the un-christian thoughts statement.
As far as Mrs. Schroder is concerned and her relationship to Nucky, I think she already has him. He is obviously bored to death with the slag he hangs with now and Mrs. Schroder is just as cunning and manipulative as Nucky. She's sharp and she isn't afraid to go behind Nucky's back to get things done. I think that gets him engorged.
This show is awesome.
I am watching and really liking the show. I think the main characters have been developed and its picking up pace.
So glad Capone didn't show up when one eyed Richie was around. He would have made him feel like **** or called him a freak or something stupid.
So the mother of what we believe to be Jimmy's son (he thinks it might be the photographer) is getting money from Nucky? I am pretty sure that's what she said in between the clam diving session.
Why would Nucky burn the house down after that guy fixed it up? Did he plan to all along or did he decide to do it after he saw this father in there? I mean it looked like he was well compensated for his loss.
So the NY/Philly gangs are trying to muscle in on Nucky's action and planning to knock over the casino.
Next few episodes should be good.
