"Ging Gang Goolie" had its moments, but my hopes of seeing the show move forward on certain fronts was hamstrung by the resurrection of storylines I had taken for dead and buried. Gillian looked like she was finally accepting Jimmy's death until she went out and got herself a new man whose side-shaved haircut was anything but subtle.
She wants to call her handsome hoosier James? Really? I thought this creepy storyline died with Jimmy, but apparently we were not so lucky, as Gillian got a second chance to play the creepy mother hand.
Oh she chose the name James because "he was a king?" So you like getting nailed by the king do you? I guess we can expect to hear some of this in upcoming weeks?
Fuck Me, Your Majesty!
Lucky might want to cash out and go into business with that trick he got fired.
Esther Randolph thought she had gotten a second chance at the one that got away, too, only to have the boat's captain cut her line. The courtroom proceedings actually provided many of the night's best entertainment. From Mr. Gold bragging to Nucky about his "wholesale" hooch operation to the judge's line about Randolph not seeking to give her life purpose in his courtroom.
"Miss Randolph I sympathize with your desire to bring purpose to your life, however, this courtroom is not the place to do it."
The best part of Nucky's trip to Washington, though, was when he asked the clerk if he could break a hundred to settle his five dollar fine.
I was happy to see Richard back on screen. At first I was surprised to see him go to the aid of the man who had called him "half moon" the night before, but I think Richard, more than anyone else, could see just how much Skorsky was hurting inside.
I was relieved to get a week off from Margaret's medical mission, but instead of spending the screen time on someone like Capone or Rosetti we got a nauseating amount of scenes about Teddy and his creepy antics.
Also loved when Mickey asked if it was true that Rosetti was wearing a dog collar. He is always good for a laugh.
Were you happy Owen and Margaret got back together as sparks flew in the greenhouse for the second time in the episode? What do you think the future holds for her and the children? Is she going to leave Nucky? Can she afford to?
P.S. have you caught Jack Huston's new Guiness Black commercial running during football games?
