Jimmy is really in it, way over his head! I did not expect him to survive the episode and now he has painted a big fat bulls-eye on his back for Manny (who reminds me of Attila the Hun).Originally Posted by AlwaysVeg
Owen's not exactly an open book, is he?
Poor Emily - and poor Margaret. Her sneaking in to cuddle with Emily and whispering "Forgive me for bringing this upon you" made me actually cry. Oh, and the bonfire! What a chore for a grieving mother to have to perform. And what of Teddy (budding pyromaniac) watching from the window?
And now we know that even in bed, Esther is a micromanager. The toenail comment made me gag a little.
Good thinking, Shay. I did the same for my 2nd viewing last night and found I could read the note passed to Jimmy. "Watching You Closely." Although they didn't deny sending it, I doubt it came from one of the floosies.Originally Posted by prhoshay
That was McGarrigle, Owen's sanctimonious boss in Sinn Fein (the one who had dinner at Nucky's house and didn't eat the lamb).Originally Posted by buglover
And the strike has struck! Chalky White is asserting his power. Can't wait to see what happens next.
ETA: I missed Van Alden this week, but he was referred to:
After some post-coital canoodling, Esther reads one of her many Nucky files and asks Lathrop if he comes across as a murderer.
"You might as well be reading the latest 'Black Mask'..." he says.
"He's [Van Alden] got Thompson ordering 12 homicides with no proof..."
Black Mask was a pulp magazine launched in 1920 offering, according to the magazine, "the best stories available of adventure, the best mystery and detective stories, the best romances, the best love stories, and the best stories of the occult."
After seeing this cover, I had to post it. Who does the coverboy look like?
