Boardwalk Empire - The Emerald City recap/review

Can we do the Boardwalk Empire recap in less than 300 words? Sure we can. Our point? What little happens on this show is dragged out for more than 50 minutes. At least SOMETHING happens on this show now. The middle of the season was wrought with all set-up and no pay-off. And we are still mad at the show for that.

Women got the right to vote in this episode, but Nucky had trouble getting an influential woman to vote for his guy in the election for mayor (Bader). Van Alden told Margaret off about her relationship with Nucky, and then he went to find Lucy, who slept with him, of course. Then, like most men who have slept with Lucy, he hated himself afterward. Margaret told Nucky that Harrow was scaring her children. Well Margaret, your children suck, because Harrow is awesome. Harrow donned his mask and charmed the children, so Margaret had to admit that she was wrong about the new protector. Margaret also had a problem with Nucky’s gangster ways, and he tried to tell her that his job was “overseeing,” rather than "cheating, making backdoor deals, and rigging elections". To support her man, she gave a great speech supportive of Bader, but then she caught sight of Nucky manipulating people to get power, as usual. After all was said and done this episode, Margaret is starting to believe that Van Alden is right about her and that Nucky is not the right kind of man for a good woman. Mickey Doyle told Nucky all about Rothstein’s operation. Nucky got Chalky to kidnap and beat the D’Alessios and Meye Lansky. Only Lansky survived, because Chalky got revenge for the death of his driver. Jimmy and Angela’s relationship had improved until Tommy told Jimmy that Robert Dittrich was “Mommy’s kissing friend.” Jimmy beat the poor boy in the crowded boardwalk and gave Angela a good look at his violent side. Mary invited Angela and Tommy to Paris to escape Jimmy. Al Capone is still in Chicago, acting a fool and going to a bar mitzvah where he heard some words of wisdom.

Episode grade: B+
