    Yeah I doubt Nucky dies of old age in the series :)

    I accept the idea of creative license especially for individual stories and gangsters coming and going but I don't think they can wander too far. For example make him Senator or president.

    I don't understand all the people on other forums who say they won't watch next season because Jimmy was killed. They watched the show for just one character and that character wasn't the main character? The show runners must have a plan for a Jimmy-less future and I plan to watch.

    I'm curious where it'll go next season, but if it focuses on the NY/NJ relations I'll be happy. Either way... I'm happy that the story writers allow major characters come and go.

    This would have been a great series finale. I'll have to see the direction they go with other main characters outside of Nucky to see how it was as a season finale.

    For the record, even though I know you weren't talking specifically to me (I don't think!), I did say I don't think the show can be the same without Jimmy but that doesn't mean to imply I won't be watching it. I just think the entire series so far has been so focused on Nucky and Jimmy's relationship that I'm not sure what the future of the show holds. It's going to be almost like a completely new show. I'm really interested and I hope this means they plan to bring other characters front and center like Rothstein, Luciano and Capone! :up:

    No, not you. I was talking/complaining about the fan comments on Alan Sepinwall's site.

    2 big loose ends that Nucky needs to tie up....Richard and Jimmy's mom. Both are going to be super pissed and out for revenge!

    BTW...what a great episode and season finale!

    ^^ He also needs to tie up his wife and hopefully throw her in the ocean.

    Yeah. Calling off Richard from taking out Manny is like "Nobody is going to stop Luca Brazzi" Manny is toast.

    Remember Richard and Jimmy pledged to be foxhole buddies to the dying breath.

    And after Jimmy and Richard did "What can I do for you?" for Nucky. I doubt Richard will go to work for Nucky.

    Loved the Federal Prosecuter's last line... "I'll take the ducks". :D

    I wonder if Richard will really be out for revenge or not. I think he saw how flawed Jimmy's move was against Nucky, and that it was doomed from the start. He may go after Manny though for what he did to Jimmy's wife.

    Gillian... I hope she'll just fade away.

    Definitely Manny (Richard had a crush on Mrs. Jimmy), but I think Nucky as well. It won't matter to him that Jimmy basically had it coming. Jimmy was his bro, and he'll want to kill the man who killed him.

    I don't see Richard as a vengeful type at all.

    Seriously?

    The only two people who have treated him kindly have been murdered, and the only real-world skill he has is murder.

    The math seems pretty simple to me...

    Also remember that Jimmy's kid is now the heir to the Commodore's fortune, and Jimmy's mom is the kids guardian (we can assume). That is going to be an interesting bone of contention in Season 3, I'll wager.

    I just came to post this. She wanted to run the show for a long time and Jimmy was just starting to tell her to STFU.

    She will now get all the money (and the power that comes with it).
