Here's To Flying Horses
What can I say about this week's boardwalk? A lot I guess so here it goes.
Richard Harrow might not be to smooth with the ladies, but his performance this season so far has everyone talking sweep comes award season.
We almost lost him though if not for Rin Tin Tin intervening and leading him back to Pete and Glemore. At first I half expected to hear banjo music playing as I conjured images of Deliverance. Thankfully the two hunters were of the non ass raping kind and offered our broken soldier a warm fire and some squirrel.
I very much liked the subtle way Glenmore reminded Richard "these woods is for living, understand me there?"
With one failed suicide attempt under his belt, it was back to work. Before he could get motivated for another job though he needed to see if he really had something worth living for and Jimmy's friendship for now was just enough for him to go a scalpin. (And I want my scalps!)
Sorry I can't help but think of Inglorious Basterds every time I saw that scene with Jimmy and Richard teaching the Chip-n-Beef captain a lesson.
Speaking of breakfast meats, according to Eli, the Commodore loves his bacon. Ol George wasn't buying it and when he threatened to "tell the world" he had to be dealt with. Luckily for Eli he had already sent young Brian on an errand.
How many swings with that wrench did it take Eli to finish that fat bastard off by the way? After a closer look i found a flaw in his swing. Any hitting coach worth his metal will tell you, you gotta keep that back elbow up.
Jimmy is in a real bind money wise. The look on his face when the door bell rang as he was sharing a nice kiss with Angela was great. He wheeled around as if to say "who bee knockin on my door when I'm about to knock some boots." Reality quickly kicked in and he was pretty relieved when it turned out to be Richard.
Angela was happy to see him too but was a little put off I think with his answer to why he wasn't at the dedication.
Richard wants that family life but in a way I think he sort of has it with Jimmy and Angela. Despite earlier indications that he might be in love with her, her interaction with him has been very mother like of late. Jimmy also has been a sort of father figure, stopping him to ask what was wrong with him, and later putting his hand on his shoulder to show he meant the line about fighting to the last bullet. Jimmy really does care for Richard, ever since they first met on that bench outside the doctor's office.
Does Margaret really love Nucky? I can't say I'm that sure. He was about to get merked by his baby bro if not for her, and all the guy can say is, next time make sure the gun is loaded? Oh it will be Nucky, just pray it's not pointed at your head. I could totally see Margaret going all Karen Hill on him.
How about the return of Shooter McGavin? Was great to see them put the Attorney General in a golf setting.
Can't say the same for Nucky's hat.
That's it for this week. I did like seeing Katie get it on with Sleater. We were right on the over under for how many episodes it would take to see her Danny Boy's. One last item I'll probably go to Hell for pointing out was the one armed guy clapping. I was like come on bro, slap the side of your leg, something. Looked like my one year old son trying to wave goodbye to me.
