HBO says of “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.
