    I have been floored by what a good looking man Jack Huston really is!!! He is gorgeous!!! And what an actor!!!!

    So much happened in the time that passed. I appreciated the flashback of the previous season and the way it was edited so well! It hit all the important bits.

    I didn't care for Bobby C's character so I'm hoping he either mellows out just a touch or isn't long for this world.

    I, too, was afraid for the dog. Everything about Bobby Cannavalle's character unnerves me. I know they made a big deal about adding him to the show, but I would not be unhappy if he's gone soon.

    There are definitely two Van Alden children now. Abigail was asleep in the bed, and the baby boy was in the nanny's/wife's arms when Van Alden came home. Can't imagine Van Alden wouldn't have married her since he was divorced from the 1st Mrs. Van A. I wonder if he's going to be firmly on the wrong side of the law, forming some kind of alliance with the florist/booze-runner to boost his income.

    Not sure why last night's premiere unsettled me, but I do think it has to do with no sympathetic characters at all, except for Richard, and he does lose a few points for murdering people. It was sweet, though, how much he cared about Angela and that Tommy should not forget her. At least Richard has a little bit of that family that he wanted so badly. Don't know quite what to make of Margaret so far. Does she know that Nucky has a mistress, or at least that there's a huge rift between them? What exactly did she expect for giving away that land?

    I just watched it for the 3rd time, and have to ask: WTH is Jillian doing forging Jimmy's name on the checks?

    And yes, 3 years have elapsed since Season 2. We didn't get to witness the Nucky v. Margaret Armageddon over St. Finabar's windfall, but we do see the aftermath.

    Likewise, Mr. Muhler (VanAlden) welcoming in his firstborn son by the nanny-turned-wife. Abigail is 3 years old now. I wonder when we'll get to see her and if Lucy has the same hankering.

    ETA: I think Mr. Cannevalle has targeted Margaret in his plans to redress the "wrongs" Nucky has verbally humiliated him with.

    I'm curious why the children don't seemed to have aged as much. Normally shows can't wait to age the kids, but Margaret's look the same ageish.

    You're right. Teddy doesn't look much older and if they showed Emily, I missed it. They did give Teddy a different hair-do, though.

    It's only been 1.5 years since S2 ended, but yeah, the kids haven't aged much at all. Maybe they like the kid actors? Or want to avoid the Bobby Draper 5.0 (or whatever they're up to now).

    What I want to know is how Gillian was able to turn the Commodore's mansion into a brothel. Has it been established that she would get that much protection from local authorities? I never got the sense she was respected all that much by the Commodore's pals and Nucky probably doesn't care about her...seeing as he shot her son and all.

    Tonight's episode felt a little empty with no Van Alden and no Richard, though I did like the notion that everyone was on edge after Manny's death at currently unknown hands. But I was glad to have Chalky White back.

    I don't get what's going on with Margaret and the hospital. It kind of seems like it's just something to have her do rather than be relevant to the greater plot.

    I need to watch it again, but I get the impression that Margaret needs something to do, so she shows up at the hospital. I see her getting involved with that doctor that snapped at her, and she snapped back. I think she's going to be involved with the hospital like that elderly woman philanthropist is on Downton Abbey.

    I get the impression that Margaret has now stepped (dragging Nucky with her) into a more elite strata of A.C. society. She's now someone who would appear in the society pages of the local papers. It's given her a forum, and she wants to find causes to promote. Nucky, however, prefers to remain sub rosa. He's unspeakably angry with her over her gifting his golden egg to the church. But he cannot disclaim it. She is crowing over this.

    I also see the attraction between her and the young doctor who attempted to illumiate the dearth of prenatal education support for expectant mothers for her. I see them as a potential love interest, trumping Nucky's current interest in his show girl (sorry, foreget her name). Sparks were flying and embers glowing between Margaret and the young doc in the last epi. I'm thinking that's going somewhere, while Nucky's current dalliance is giving him a major headache. He's a sugar daddy, and he's beginning to apprehend that. Margaret's just plain beautiful and challenging.
