Learn What’s Ahead For
Lots more Harrow!
Plus Julianne Nicholson returns tonight as Naked Esther!
Episode #30: “Ging Gang Goolie”
After being detained in Washington by Daugherty’s henchmen, Nucky approaches Esther Randolph (Julianne Nicholson), his onetime nemesis, and later entertains an intriguing proposition from Gaston Means. In Atlantic City, Margaret copes with Teddy’s (Rory and Declan McTigue) demons, while Owen investigates a suspicious fire; Gillian feuds with Lucky and finds a surrogate for Jimmy; and Richard (Jack Huston) connects with pugilistic vet Paul Sagorsky (Mark Borkowsky) and his daughter Julia (Wrenn Schmidt). Written by Steve Kornacki; directed by Ed Bianchi.
Episode #31: “Sunday Best”
On Easter Sunday, Eli looks to get back in Nucky’s good graces at a Thompson family reunion. While Richard and Tommy (Brady and Connor Noon) spend the day as guests of the Sagorskys, Gillian stays at home and makes a sacrifice to improve her future. In New York, after dinner and prayers, Gyp heads downtown in search of a blessing – from Joe Masseria. Written by Howard Korder; directed by Allen Coulter.
Episode #32: “The Pony”
Gillian (Gretchen Mol) makes her peace with Jimmy’s death, though not with Nucky (Steve Buscemi), as Gyp (Bobby Cannavale) arrives to play ally. Working off his debt to O’Banion (Arron Shiver), Van Alden (Michael Shannon) attends a meeting with Capone (Stephen Graham) and Torrio (Greg Antonacci); later, after a workplace meltdown, he considers Sigrid’s (Christiane Seidel) case for staying put versus resuming a life on the lam. With help from Gaston Means (Stephen Root), Nucky pays an unscheduled visit to Andrew Mellon (James Cromwell), offering the Treasury Secretary a recommendation and a business proposal. Margaret (Kelly Macdonald) makes a stand on birth control; Nucky and Owen (Charlie Cox) shop for a birthday pony; Billie (Meg Chambers Steedle) eyes a future on the silver screen, to Nucky’s chagrin. Written by Terence Winter and Howard Korder; directed by Tim Van Patten.
Episode #33: “The Milkmaid’s Lot”
Reeling from Gyp’s most recent attack, Nucky vows to eliminate his nemesis through a coalition of familiar partners. In Washington, the arrest of a high-profile bootlegger puts Daugherty (Christopher McDonald) and Jess Smith (Ed Jewett) on the hot seat. Emily (Lucy and Josie Gallina) gets a scaled-down birthday party; Gillian blames an absent Harrow (Jack Huston) for Tommy’s (Brady and Connor Noon) latest misadventure; Gyp decides to buy a town’s silence; Broadway mourns a fallen star. Written by Rolin Jones; directed by Ed Bianchi.
Episode #34: “A Man, a Plan…”
Nucky reaches out to Gaston Means to keep Jess Smith quiet in Washington, and enlists Owen to neutralize Gyp’s alliance with Joe Masseria (Ivo Nandi) in New York. Margaret considers alternate futures, at the hospital and at home; Van Alden’s side business backfires; Gyp fumes when a shipment comes up short; Harrow coerces an apology for Julia (Wrenn Schmidt); Chalky (Michael Kenneth Williams) sees opportunity in the ashes of a boardwalk institution. Written by Dave Flebotte; directed by Jeremy Podeswa.
Episode #35: “Two Imposters”
Gyp makes his move in Atlantic City, forcing Nucky and Eddie (Anthony Laciura) to seek refuge with Chalky. With the Artemis Club overrun by Rosetti thugs, Gillian contemplates a business future that includes an unwelcome partner. Luciano (Vincent Piazza) makes a deal he’ll come to regret; Harrow loses his house privileges. Written by Howard Korder; directed by Allen Coulter.

for the future episode descriptions? I don't care as I read spoilers all the time, sure there are some though that do care.

from the sounds of it, Billie dies? Shit. Loved that character/ acress.

Best character on the show, most badass and he's being wasted.

The story with gaston means is going to be epic, love the guy playing him. Harrow, Capone and others will be used to spice up the last half of this season. Things are shaping up to be brilliant as they were at last season end. If the rumors are true and Nucky does send Owen to kill Margaret, for having an affair with the doctor, it could be another perfect finale.

I'd like to see Nucky hire Richard as his assassin ... as Richard is the most underused character in the show.

Wanted to be him for Halloween, but I think the market might be flooded this year, like that one year that every single guy was Heath's Joker.
Oct. 21, 2012, 1:23 p.m. CST
I doubt the market for Harrow is anywhere near Heath's Joker. This is where a 3D printer would come in really handy, print yourself half of your own face in plastic, throw on one of those hats and some glasses and hit the town.

I had a weird dream where Harrow went back to his farm to lie low with his sister. I was there, too. Just chillin.' Then Harrow took off to kill Nucky and I wasn't sure whether I wanted to stay with his sister or go on the hit. Then I woke up, god dammit.

At this point it wouldn't surprise me if Gyp lit his stogie with a Tommy gun and sprayed "eat lead Nucky" on the side of the Ritz.

Don't get me wrong, Cannavale is still killing it.

than any other character, but if I was running BE, it might occasionally occur to me "hey - there's no Chalky White at all in this episode, but we've got 4 scenes with Maragaret wringing her hands and being nervous about something. Fix that shit." With the exception of too much Margaret, I don't have another complaint - the rest of this season has been great. And Gillian getting pumped by her little Jimmy's doppleganger was great.

Margaret worried about prenatal care, worried about the situation with Nucky, worried about her weird kid...just riveting television. BTW, the kid actors are horrible, maybe not as scratch-your-face-off annoying as the kid on Walking Dead, but still pretty bad. I'm amazed GOT did so well in the child actor dept.

Worrying about prenatal care, worrying about the situation with Nucky, worrying about her weird kid. That is riveting television.
Oct. 22, 2012, 10:27 a.m. CST
Someone needs to shoot margaret in the face, but I think the kids are alright... hopefully the kid'll stab margaret and then burn the house down.
Oct. 22, 2012, 11:50 a.m. CST
She went and found him right after Lucky reminded her that Jimmy owns the house. I don't think she was just out to fuck her sons doppleganger.

Even though I miss Jimmy and The Commodore, I think this season is getting better simply because they are finally focusing on less characters. By the middle of the second season, they had way too many balls in the air, it was hard to concentrate on who wa
by Coughlins Laws
People would show up, get killed, I'd have no idea who the Hell they were. This year they've focused on only a couple of storylines and it makes it more compelling to watch.
Oct. 22, 2012, 2:47 p.m. CST
was it Margaret's demon kid?...was Owen lying about catching a vagrant?...

Notice the subtle way they have the sound of the dog barking in the background of the Margaret scenes. This of course would be the same dog Gyp gave them. Brilliant way to keep the idea of him present in the moment and to cause tension. That's just great writing. I wouldn't be surprised to see that dog have something to do with Gyps ultimate demise. Still, it's obvious they over lay the barking into most of her scenes tonight. Kelly Mac was wonderful tonight over all. She was at the center of most of the episode, and did great. Tension, spanking, outdoor sex, you name it she did it. Was there a scene more erotic than when she pranced across the room in the house with those clicking shoes. Jesus what a woman. On critique I would ad credence to, is that Nucky is at his best in the shadows of politics. He maneuvers in that arena so much more fluidly than in the gangster world. It also distinguishes him and his character as something different than the typical mafia don. It's ironic that Kelsey G is offering an equally impressive run in a similar modern day take eh? The next few episodes are going to be great. The description of Nucky assembling a team of men who enjoy kicking ass to deal with Gyp should be amazing, and on par with Omar/Brother Muzone team up from the Wire. Seeing a team of The Phantom, Chalky, Dunn, Owen, and that honey badger butler of his will no doubt be riveting.

If it wasn't a period piece it wouldn't get half the love it does.
Oct. 22, 2012, 9:37 p.m. CST
Everything in it has become ridiculous and contrived.

Margaret's travails are really pretty tedious. I'm sure it's all to set up some explosive shit at season's end (fucking hope it is anyway) but I really couldn't care less about little Teddy and his incipient pyromania.
