With only one episode remaining in Boardwalk Empire Season 3, "Two Imposters" spent a lot of time setting the stage for the finale.
For a man who is accustomed to eating his meals with silver, Nucky showed he was no geek off the street and pretty handy with the steel when it came time to regulate.
Boardwalk Empire quotes.
I loved their little exchange at the lumber yard where Nucky mused about the two being stuck with each other followed by the close up on their handshake. Lets just hope nothing causes their new feeling of brotherhood to break apart.
While Nucky and Chalky discussed a last stand, Richard was preparing to wage a war of his own. He endured insult after insult from his batty boss, but when Gillian moved to keep him and Tommy apart, a switch was flipped.
Harrow fans have been waiting a long time to see Richard unleash the fury. I think after next week, that wait will be over.
Meanwhile, back in New York, Lucky and Meyer have been having about as much success in the dope game as Margaret had with her maternity classes. Lucky usually defers to Meyer on matters of the mind, but Lucky's gut was riddled with worry about the money they owed and forced him into a bad decision. How did he not see all those lawmen hiding on the roof? Were they members of the Foot Clan? If Masseria is the source of Lucky's problems, it would make sense that he and Meyer align with Nucky if the opportunity or need to pick a side arrives.
With just one episode remaining, this mostly was a set up episode, but was necessary. What bothered me were a few other things.
Gillian was more painful than ever.
Like Chris rock once said, I'd never hit a woman, never ever ever...but I'd shake the sh-t out of Gillian if I got the chance. Maybe Julia will step up and give Scarlett O'Horrible what she deserves.
Speaking of people who needed to get shook...while it was cool thinking under fire for Chalky to summon Samuel, I was a little surprised at the kid's gall. When a man like Chalky White tells you to jump, you ask how high.
Lastly I was shocked to find myself growing tired of Gyp's routine: "I'm pitching my tent hi-ho!" I think that general's hat is too tight and preventing the blood from getting to his head.
That's all I got. Hope I hit on some stuff you liked. Differing opinions are always great for discussion sake but I'm not gonna lie and say I don't love it when I am in sync with my homies. It be like...
