Advertisements This is currently my favorite show. Nucky's going back door to recontrol the game and it's so obvious that even not usually perceptive Eli sees it. Team Jimmy certainly won't win if its leader takes advice from mom. The new regime had its moments though like when Jimmy sent Mickey over the balcony. Rothstein is my favorite. Nucky complained to Margaret, "Must I pretend with you?" and in scene one Rothstein called his boys out for pretending ("the smell of manure') Later the NY boss gave once rival Nucky straight solid honest advice. The three bosses have discovered commonalities such as it's lonely at the top especially when you have aggressive pups like Capone/Lucky/Jimmy. I like the woman investigating Nucky. Much better than Van Alden who continues to become more and more a cartoon character. What a joke the scene was with Van Alden rejecting the free lunch (after reciting how important and moral he is). What else can they do with him after the ridiculousness of last years drowning and the horrible storyline with skank? Not enough Richard, but in the little screentime it seems his "mask" appeared a little beat up. Maybe the dog chewed it. Thankfully Jimmy offered him a new one, but first he's got to get his "doomed to fail" administration off the ground. Only 4 episodes left.... not fair!
