    I kinda hate seeing poor Nucky keep getting slapped down like that. On the other hand, I know the more he gets slapped down, the more awesome his revenge is going to be! :D

    Loved it when Nucky slapped the Lobster from the Commodore's table.

    Anyone else likes the way Doyle speaks and laughs? He cracks me up every time!

    Why do you think that? That's what she told Nucky, doesn't mean it is the truth. In fact if that is her first husband (divorced or not), you would think that she would be certain not to let Nucky find that fact out, and the "cousins" story is close enough to the truth be a good cover story.

    Maybe Margaret has a secret twin sister and they traded places after the other one faked her death. Sorry, I just watched another Ringer episode.

    But having watched the Ken Burns "Prohibition" documentary, facially the actor is a total ringer for Capone.

    It got on my nerves last season but he's growing on me.

    Guess what? You know who Meyer's wacky "Bennie" is?

    Believe it or not, Bugsy Seigel

    Doesn't surprise me too much, since his name is Benny Seigel and he hangs out with Meyer Lansky...

    Having first seen him in "This is England" I thought he was cast quite well

    I thought that the real Al's scar was more pronounced.

    Maybe not.

    Dumb question, because I should watch again with captioning turned on...

    Why did Agent Van H go to "Doyle" to get the Victrola? Just to get a pay-off for the money?

    You go for masked men?

    Harrow shouldn't be so sure he's out of the running, then.

    I guess the idea is that Harrow won't shoot any guy who has a family, including Nucky.

    She's not bad on the eyes but she defines what we call high maintenance.

    Yep. She goes for bad guys.

    I don't like Harrow because I find him hot. He's fascinating! Luciano on the other hand, that's all about the pretty. :p

    And yes, I'm too mean to go for the good/nice guys!

    I watched again, and replayed.

    They start out talking with Doyle saying, "I know 100 speaks." Agent Van Alden gives "Doyle" a pack of money, "Are you admitting to me that you're a bootlegger?" - after they have walked by Doyles hooch - and Doyle says "I can't get a bead on you..." and gives him a yellow piece of note paper (I was thinking it was a Post-It note :rolleyes:).

    So the Agent is paying him as informant for tips on (Nucky's) speak easies he can bust?

    We haven't seen him do any busts.

    It still doesn't make much sense.

    That was my take on it. He is getting info on the speak easies so he can bust them and then skim off some of the take so that he can pay his baby mamma.
