    THIS. Jimmy is really annoying me with his stupidity and I don't want to be annoyed by him because overall I really like the character and the actor. Ugh.

    I"m thinking the same thing. I believe Psycho Butcher has over-extended himself.

    Didn't see Angela getting it. I do wonder if Jimmy will be the prime suspect. I don't see how it can be avoided, really.

    I thought we'd see a storyline of Jimmy's wife getting addicted to heroin with all the other actors/artists that they specifically mentioned last episode.

    Especially with Richard Harrow having that obsession longing for a wife and kids, and Angela herself reaching out to him. "What's it like?" ...

    ...Richard will want to kill Manny several times. Maybe he can take off half of his face first.

    In the afterwords Terrance says that Forsythe didn't want to shoot a woman, "My kids are going to see this." That went into Manny not really wanting to do it, "Your husband did this."

    Yeah. I don't see any other way around this one. Unless Jimmy is stupid enough to think it was someone else that killed her. But either way, she and Richard had some nice bonding so I don't doubt he'll be just fine with vengeance.

    I never saw that. Sammy the Bull was "not a nice man," either.

    Whatever novel author that was supposed to be, she didn't finish the book.

    Jimmy clearly makes a much better thug than leader. His arc must be either learning to step up as leader, or learning to step back as somebody else's thug. Either way, he's not making much progress.

    I see Jimmy becoming a drug addict. He took the heroin from Lucky. There isn't much else they can do with his character.

    He spent some time in the opium dens after his girlfriend killed herself.

    Don't think marijuana was illegal in those days - maybe not heroin or cocaine, either. I think you could buy cocaine in a drug store and it was in Coca-Cola around that time.

    "Reefer Madness" was in the late 1930s.

    Heroin was illegal and that's why Lucky passed Jimmy some. It was potential business.

    PS I looked it up. There was a law passed making it illegal in the 20's.

    Coca-Cola was 100% cocaine free by 1929 and even before that it was a negligable amount.

    What year are we at right now in this series? I'm thinking it's the very early 20s, because prohibition was just taking effect at the beginning of the first season.

    Heroin was legal by prescription only from 1914 to 1924, and then it was outlawed completely.

    I think it's 1920 or 21. There was a headline they showed of the trial for the Black Sox Scandal, I think at the lawyer's office that Nucky went to with Arnold Rothstein (who was supposedly who set up the scandal). In that case the laws mentioned above would not have been passed.

    Also, just read a review about the new History Channel special on Pearl Harbor which mentioned that FDR probably sniffed cocaine to relieve a sinus problem, which was commonly done by doctors of the day (1941). So I think a lot of these drugs were legal.
