Nucky can't leave AC, the show is called Boardwalk Empire.
Won't your face be red when they change the name to "Desert Empire"?
They could move the show to Coney Island which has a rather famous Boardwalk, or Asbury Park. Both were very popular vacation spots in that era.
If you really want to know where he'll be next year, you can look him up on Wikipedia...
Okay forgive for putting this all here but I figure since it was the finale and I just got caught up it's better than replying to every episode thread! I will try to not make this too wordy!
First of all, not at all happy about Owen. Funny enough, I didn't realize how much I liked him until I saw him in that box. Now I'm pissed. First Jimmy and now Owen. They are killing off all the good male roles that aren't already there because of history, other than Richard. And if they were to even dare think about it, I'd be out. He's my deal breaker at this point.
But wow so much to reel about this season! First of all, let's go over the things that shocked me.
Nucky killing that kid. WOW. I was more shocked than Owen was. I mean, I get why he would kill him, I just didn't think he was going to.
Gyp's penis. Did we really need to see that? HBO just love to show us male parts and I don't know why. At least keep to to Lucky's. HIS I don't mind seeing.
Gillian sleeping with Jimmy lookalike, Roger. I was shocked then grossed out. Then shocked again because the crazy ***** drowns him! I assume she did that to fake him as the real Jimmy so she could get the house legally? That was sketchy to me because I was too busy still going over the sleeping and killing of the poor guy.
Gyp and the shovel. I knew it was coming. I knew he was going to bash that guy's head in and it still took me back watching it. Just wow.
And of course Owen in the box. I really did not see that coming at all. I maybe should have but I didn't realize his character was in any danger of leaving. I really thought there was more story left with him and Margaret and Nucky. And speaking of, did she wig out much?? It was funny seeing the realization dawn on Nucky's face the more she freaked out.
Richard getting his guns out was like "awwwww yeah, here we go! You all are in some twouble now!" Ha! It's ridiculous how giddy that scene with him just taking all Gyp/Masseria's men out at the hotel made me. I think I might have even squeed like a fangirl. I liked that she was able to see past the face thing. Now the gun/blood thing, maybe not. Gillian will not be pleased next season about her grandson.
Can I just say my favorite line of the season, maybe the series so far was this "I need a bath, some chow, and then you and me sit down, and we talk about who dies." YES!!! I really hope we start getting more Capone next season. He's one of my favorite characters and it's all due to Stephen Graham's chops. He makes me honestly like the guy and feel touched with the scenes of him and his boy. Then he says stuff like this above with that smirk and I was literally about cheering in my living room!!
Perhaps Nucky should get to know his most loyal people a bit more. How did he not know Eddie had a family? WTF Nucky. And he dared to tell Margaret "I forgive you" about Owen after all the slutting around he's done. So typical, especially back then. Don't get me wrong, I don't really sympathize much with her but that just irked me.
Did not care about Van Alden this season at all. Nor did I give a crap about Nucky's side fling Billie. I'd say I didn't even care about the Lucky/Masseria/heroin thing but it's Lucky and I have a thing for him and the actor so he gets a pass. Plus I did find humor in them talking so much crap about Meyer and him not being Italian yet when it counted he was the only one using his brains. Him having to tell Lucky that if he doesn't shut up they're both dead was like DUH! but then you have that Italian temper. This girl knows all about that. It's gotten me into trouble plenty of times myself.
Eli had some good moments. Chalky had some great moments at the end. I think he'll end up with his club next season. I don't know the history on that and I'm not looking it up. I'd rather just wait and see.
Did I miss anything big??
What a great post. Thanks for having me relive the season!
What she said
Except for that one part.
to you both!
Forget them bums. I liked reading your recap.
