"What Goes Around, Comes Back Around Again"
We gonna hit it down like this, y'all know the flav...I know Jimmy told Remus he is currently looking for an office, but that set up in his house on the beach was pretty picturesque. How'd you like to be Angela and come home to find a group of hardened criminals like Lucky Luciano, Meyer Lansky and Al Capone going through your fridge for snacks? She's gotta feel like Holly Hunter in Raising Arizona when she had Gale and Evelle Snoats eating up all her corn flakes.
Jimmy still has to figure out what to do about Manny Horvitz. He didn't seem to appreciate Doyle's suggestion too much nor did Doyle seem to show any real respect for Jimmy's new authority when he skeptically called him the new puba.
As for Manny he is lucky nobody on this show can hit the broad side of a barn when it comes to shooting someone point blank. Our own Brownie Luciano had a great comment earlier in the week when we were discussing this anomaly. He didn't understand why the guy who was sent to kill Nucky didn't just wait until he was right in front of Nucky to shoot him. The guy drew his gun while he was still 10 yards away. Brownie genius likened it to a wide receiver running 50 yards with his hands in the air to catch a pass. Getting back to Manny it may have helped if the guy actually opened his eyes when he pulled the trigger.
The guy paid the price for being a moron. Speaking of morons, Deputy Halloran is a real beaut isn't he? Esther Randolph could only stare in disbelief at the stuff that was coming out of this guy's mouth.
On the subject of Esther, loved seeing her taking down her subordinate.
I liked that out man Chalky was back and enlisting the help of Dunn Purnsley and his gold tooth to stir up the locals and lead a workers strike. I previously thought the guys had killed him in the jail cell, but I guess they just beat him good. I wouldn't be too presumptuous in thinking the white merchants in Atlantic City will have no alternative if all the black workers go on strike. Purnsley asked his fellow kitchen workers what the boss men would do if they said they would no longer work for this slop. Three words my man...Mex-I-Co. Cheap labor is just across the border.
The scenes in Ireland were pretty intense and Owen was right in the thick of things. You could tell by the way he kept switching his gaze to and from the IRA brass that he knew what was coming.
I really like this Sleater fellow and even more so after we saw how upset he was as he read aloud the telegram about Emily to Nucky. While it is important to note that Margaret blamed herself for her daughter's sickness and thinks God is punishing her for her sins I can't even begin to get into that whole polio storyline. It's just too upsetting.
As the episode came two a close there were two other women who looked like they were going to get punished too, but in a totally different sense of the word. Jimmy and Richard picked up the local B's at the fight broadcast. Loved the how aggressive the one B was telling her friend she wanted first crack at the king. And yay for Richard, it looked like his B was sort of turned on by the phantom of the baordwalk look after being initially freaked out. Parlay up in here!
ONLY 3 EPISODES LEFT!!!
