The new season starts on Sunday at 9 PM. After the events of last season, it'll be interesting to see where they go this year.

My DVR is set to go. I'm curious too, after the way it ended last season.

A bit disappointed in the opener...


Only because of Nucky's passing comment about Margaret

selling off his land....


...I mean, that was one of the big "oh sh*t" moments at the

end of last season, and I expected retribution.

Like the season openers of many shows, it was alot of necessary evil stuff since they have to set up the characters & their stories and fill in the blanks of what happened between the two seasons. The new gangster (Rosetti?) seems pretty threatening. Nucky, Rothstein, Luciano, etc. have no problem killing people but this guy seems like a psycho first and a businessman second. I'm curious why it took Harrow all that time to get around to getting revenge against Manny for killing Angela. Obviously, the real world answer is that the writers wanted it to happen onscreen rather than be referred to.

Loved the premiere.  Cannavale is a great addition to the cast.  I'll be shocked if he makes it past this season though.  Rothstein is awesome.  That smile he gave when Rosetti called him a "smug, kike midget" was priceless.

Is no one watching this?


The season has been great, but I have to admit Margaret really brings the show to a grinding halt every scene she's in.  She needs to go.  Interestingly, the stuff with Nucky is also much less interesting than what's going on with Rothstein, Luciano, Lansky, Harlow, Gyp or even Chalky.

I will say that Bobby Cannavale sure is getting into his role as Gyp. Man, is he whack.

Loved the scene with Harrow coming to visit Nucky with Mickey in tow.

I have a bunch of stuff going on right now but I always see the show when it airs. No waiting for On Demand for me. :)

Yeah, I don't think I've ever seen him anything before (not that I remember anyway) but he's great as Rosetti. He brings a menace where you're constantly wondering if he's going to fly off the handle but at the same time, I also like him because he's so 'evil'. You can tell that the actor is enjoying the hell out of the role too.

I'm taking odds on which person kills Rosetti.  Right now, I'm thinking Harrow from long distance with a scope.

What an exceptionally terrific episode this week.


Things should really start heating up now.

I wonder if Rosetti is going to be mad?

Meet the infamous Bugsy Siegel, who was only 17 during last night's action.

Mad, he'll get, but also dead in due time.

And a big thumbs up to a great Taxi Driver homage.

So are we to assume it was Rothstein who ordered the hit, since he was there when Rosetti told the other kid to bring him a paper everyday?  Since Rothstein had indicated earlier taking out Rosetti would create more problems for him, were the directions to take out everyone but Rosetti?  Also seemed strange that they would let that kid in the inn at all...why not just take the newspaper?


What was the Taxi Driver homage?  Just the shooting scene?

I'm sure it'll be made clear next episode but it must have been Rothstein since, like you said, he knew about the newspaper delivery. I also assume that Rosetti was supposed to be killed but that went out the window when Rosetti started shooting back.

Yeah, that shot panning over top of the carnage. I was happy to see Eddie Cantor back again. Not that I'm an authority on the real man but the actor just seems to perfectly capture a vaudeville performer to me.

I love this show. Maybe I'm just sick but the scene with Van Alden and the iron had me in hysterics. And the end took me completely by surprise. Clearly, something was going down but I sure wasn't expecting that.

You could see the build up with Van Alden coming from early in the scene. Michael Shannon really sold Van Alden's glee at finally striking back at his tormentors. The look of satisfaction on his face while holding the iron on the wise acre's face was palpable. The event at the end surprised me not because it happened, but because of what did happen. When I saw the freeze frame of Billie Kent, you knew some bad stuff was going to happen. Given the nature of the attack and Owen's familiarity with that method will Nucky falsely suspect Owen? Just a wild theory. - Walter.
Fidelity to the source should always be the goal for Blu-ray releases.

Nah, Nucky knows exactly who would have done this act as Owen could and would've done it successfully without hurting so many other people.


There's going to be a lot of killing over the remaining epidsodes and I still think it's going to be Harrow that kills Rosetti.

I'm curious who will end up killing Gillian*- Luciano or Nucky? Luciano isn't going to like having been suckered into giving up the info on going to Babette's and Nucky isn't going to be happy that his girl is most likely dead. * Assuming that actually happens.
