I often get the feeling from the show that even some of the non-fictional characters are modelled on real life persons. I liked the Ma Rainey reference too

I don't doubt it. Like I said, the singer reminds me a lot of Josephine Baker which lived in the same era. She was a groundbreaking performer for her time, breaking a lot of cultural and conventional rules.

Good point. That does explain why we might not be seeing her much this season. If that's the case though, I can only hope we'll be seeing more of her next season or towards the end of this one.

Re: Boardwalk Empire - Season 4 Discussion Thread

So nice to see more of Margaret. I guess there really wasn't a reason to fear, as it seems it was only a matter of reintroducing her.

I loved this episode, and it's my favourite of this season so far. So much going on in this one. Capone starts his revenge, Hoover officially takes the reigns of the Bureau, and Margaret gets a visit from Rothstein.

Speaking of which, I wonder what he really was up to. Margaret really seemed disgusted to see him knowing he'd done business with Nucky and as someone from a past that she's tried to escape from. Made me wonder since he knows her real identity if he'll end up being a problem for her. If he mentions who she really is to her boss, there's possibility of her not seeing that promotion that was hinted at.

Valentin Narcisse and his followers are making me nervous. I really hope Chalky gets wise to it.

And Nucky's right and I hope he can catch on to the FBI dude before it gets bad.

Re: Boardwalk Empire - Season 4 Discussion Thread

Damn, I hate being right. Daughter Maitland is in league with Dr. Narcisse, who is attacking Nucky from all angles: His associates, his business, his community, and his personal life. I really hope Chalky wises up before the jaws snap shut. I fear his daughter will be the "good" doctor's next target.

It's great to see a lot more Margaret this week including an accidental run in with Rothstein. Beyond the obvious implications of this meeting, I felt a bit weird out by the golly persona Rothstein took on with his fake identiy. Very weird.

It was also great to see the return of Julianne Nicholson and James Cromwell as well as more of Stephen Root. I do wonder what's going on between him and Agent Knox (or is it Tollimer?). Jeffrey Wright finally returns and more going on with Ron Livingston, although I still can't figure out what his game is. There has to be more to it than Piggy Wiggly, right?

Al is going full throttle. And I love every minute of it.

Re: Boardwalk Empire - Season 4 Discussion Thread

It was a bit rough, but I think Chalky is finally wise to Dr. Narcisse being a genuine peice of shit. Chalky mighn't have academic smarts, but he generally seems to have good instincts. Now that Daughter Maitland just saved Chalky's ass the question is where do her loyalties now lie?

The FBI schmuck has just played his hand openly so now we wonder if Eli is going to sell Nucky out. At this point it looks like it, but you never know.

Re: Boardwalk Empire - Season 4 Discussion Thread

This season is kind of depressing me. It feels less developed than any of the previous ones and feels rather different, and it has something to do with the locations they're using. One of the things that made the earlier shows unique and set it apart from other shows was the beautiful boardwalk set, which had an open feel to it. But this season has an indoor feel to it and it feels less atmospheric.

Re: Boardwalk Empire - Season 4 Discussion Thread

Good to see Chalky has wised up not only only with Dr. Narcisse, but also with Dunn. I genuinely worried for Chalky's safety when he was talking to Daughter Maitland to sing the song that was sung over his father's grave. I got this strong sense, along with what Narcisse said to Maitland earlier, that Chalky might met his maker, and with this show, you can never be too certain. I wasn't too surprised Maitland saved Chalky's ass, but it was a relief nonetheless. Chalky will probably be more on the offensive now. And about time, too.

I fear Eli has sold Nucky out, but I hope not, and not simply because I don't want Nucky sold out; we've already gone down this route with Eli and it would feel awfully repetitive if he did this, no matter how understandable his actions would be. Yet, based on the look on his face after Nucky successfully brought Willie back into the family's good grace.

No Richard, Margaret or Al again, alas, but no Gillian either, so that's always good.

If Eli would lay it out for Nucky then they could devise a plan of action to deal with FBI schmuck.

Well Chalky is wise to Narcisse and I can only hope that Nucky sees Narcisse for what he is, too.

Stuff for fans of Van Allen.

Rothstein looks like he's beginning to slum for lack of cash.

The scene where Nucky is only to happy to get rid of Eddie Doyle was a riot.

It's "Mickey" Doyle, actually.

As for Rothstein...well, remember why the Historical Rothstein got killed?
