Thoughts on tonight’s Boardwalk Empire

Back by popular demand! (Really!)

Previouslies: The entire preceding two seasons. People who are dead recap: Jimmy, Angela, Manny Horvitz (by Richard Harrow bc he got fed up with this tuchus killing everyone he’s ever loved), plus other people(??); Margaret Schroeder punked Nuck & sold all of New Jersey to the Catholic church or something (idk I haven’t really been paying attention), a bunch of new characters were introduced, including Bobby Cannavale as an Italian stereotype named Gyp, who, despite not killing a dog, is probably pretty nasty. Margaret reps Nelly Furtado. What else? Van Alden is still alive, & Arnold Rothstein is still the sass queen of New York. Let’s begin.
