Gillian's romantic obsession with her now dead son continues. She can't let go and now has 'proxy-James' Roger to pretend with. LOL

Re: Boardwalk Empire - Season 3 (Discussion, Spoilers)

A quiet but great episode. I loved the return of Julianne Nicholson (I had no idea she's was coming back) and I look forward to seeing more of her this season.

Re: Boardwalk Empire - Season 3 (Discussion, Spoilers)

I thought last night was light on action but heavy on some character moments. I like Rosetti a lot more after seeing his family. He's such a rough, odd character and I didn't expect his family to keep him in check like they did. It was fun to watch.

Seeing more Harrow is always good and I'm glad they are giving him a love interest. The Eli-Nucky rapprochement is something that was nicely done. I liked how they played it where Nucky and Margaret saw something different in each other during the family talent show. And it was sad that Margaret didn't take Nucky up on her offer. I was a little pissed at Margaret that she put Nucky's business out there to his sister-in-law, when she just cheated on him last week.

I was wondering what was going to happen between Gillian and fake James. I thought she was going to use him in some scheme to gain control of the house, and I guess she did but I wasn't expecting her killing him. I knew something was up though when they spent so much time showing her bathe him. But still, that was some cold work.

Hopefully this was a calm before the storm episode and the action will pick up next week.

Re: Boardwalk Empire - Season 3 (Discussion, Spoilers)

I also liked the insight we got into Rosetti's life and his motivation fitting in with the theme of how one can relate to God in this world.
I also liked how we got to see a different side to Nucky and to Margaret (with her it was more the way Nucky used to see her, I guess). I wonder how their relationship will develop.
I suspected James' Mum would kill fake James though I didn't realise it would be part of a larger plan until it happened. It was painfully awkward seeing them together so I don't mind but I wonder how this will upset things further. I mean, there are some people who know that Jim's been dead for a while and I'm pretty sure Harrow will know that the dead guy in the bathtub isn't Jimmy. It's going to be interesting to see what he'll do about that.

By the way, I can never get over how almost everyone seems to have a telephone in the show, in the 20s. Does anyone know how realistic that is? I mean it could be and it's probably just my personal hang-up because I come from a country where only about 11% of private households had a telephone in 1989, just before it ceased to exist.

Re: Boardwalk Empire - Season 3 (Discussion, Spoilers)

Gillian is as weird and creepy as ever. Makes me wonder what that was all about, what was the point of introducing that character if he was going to die so soon? Was it so she could effectively say goodbye to him since she hadn't had the chance before Nucky shot him?

I too liked Nucky and Margaret's story, and it makes me wonder if there's a hope for salvation in their marriage, as they both learned something they didn't know about each other. We've learned that Nucky's good with children, for example. Sounds to me like Margaret was feeling like there wasn't any hope though.

No, I think Gillian was just being cold and calculating. She needed a body to have Jimmy seen as dead. She then gets the house.

IDK, I still have hope for them as a couple.

Re: Boardwalk Empire - Season 3 (Discussion, Spoilers)

Another great character study episode.

I loved every scene with Richard and his relationship with Julia. I really hope that relationship blossoms. He deserves it.

Gillian continues to prove how utterly creepy and fucked in the head she is, but at least she had a sensible endgame (at least, within the terms of her screwed up mind).

Easter celebration at Eli's was a real treat and I liked how Nucky and Eli are slowly rebuilding their brotherhood, even if it will never be the same again. However, I was disappointed that Margaret closed the door on Nucky even after they both saw each other a new light. I still have my fingers crossed for them.

Even Rosetti's segment was interesting, and for the first time, I actually liked the character.

I would have liked to seen how Capone and Chalky each celebrated Easter but that's a small caveat.

A good solid ep tonight with lots going on. Poor Billie. Nothing a hot iron cant fix I always say. A terrific scene and a great look on his face once the deed was done.

Re: Boardwalk Empire - Season 3 (Discussion, Spoilers)

I agree that tonight's episode was pretty good. I had been waiting for Van Alden to snap for a while now and that was a well done scene. I had a feeling something might happen to Billie since they were spending so much time on her this week and I knew someone important would eventually have to be sacrificed in the mob war. Now it's really personal for Nucky.

I really wanna see Rosetti get it, particularly after what's just happened. Gillian is also gonna get hers eventually---Nucky isn't stupid.

Re: Boardwalk Empire - Season 3 (Discussion, Spoilers)

I'm surprised no one from Angela's family has tried to get Jimmy's son.

So Rosetti was the one who caused the explosion? Makes sense to try and get Rothstein and Nucky out of the way in one go. Poor girl, she had nothing to do with anything.

The end sort of resembled the episode where someone tried to kill Nucky and Margaret but the Butler saved them both.

And Van Alden really struck gold with Wife #2 huh? Real 180 from Rose...

Looks like Nucky's world is closing in on him after this last episode.
