Previouslies: I didn’t review last week’s episode because I just got swept up in watching its gentle beauty…and also I’m lazy. But tonight I’m pretty sure the shit hits the fan because last week was way too gentle.
But HBO wants you to know about their ~very special guest stars~: James motherfucking Cromwell, Esther Ladyblazer!!, STEPHEN MOTHERFUCKING ROOT, Shooter McGavin! Also: Gillian’s lost her damn mind, Margaret’s women’s health clinic, Gyp almost got whacked but then didn’t, Van Alden is probably gonna start working for Dean O’Banion in Chicago (where shit is brewing with Capone & Johnny Torio, too), Margaret & Owen are back to fucking, to pretty much everyone’s approval, Eli is back to being Nucky’s right hand (with Mickey Doyle), dis bitch Billie Kent still exists. I dunno. A lot of shit.
Boardwalk Empire, 3x08 “The Pony” (wri. Terrence Winter & Howard Korder, dir. Tim Van Patten)**
**Wow, ok, check out this pedigree. Cream o’ the crop! This episode is gonna be cray. Bring it.
