    I'm hoping and praying that those two have a season long "will they or won't they" romance. That's what that series needs.

    His "You owe me!!!" line after that was the best line of the series, given the context. It's not that he has no morals, it's that his morals are so effin' twisted. I think he's a goner in one of the next two episodes, which is a shame. The show is in overdrive when he's on the screen, you can't take your eyes off him.

    When the focus is on Nucky, on the other hand, things seem to sputter. Whether it is the writing or the direction or Buscemi just never really found the root of his character, Buscemi's Nucky just doesn't really work for me even after all this time. The role is like an ill-fitting suit on him, IMHO.

    I knew something was up when I saw folks posting in here after the show...so I bumped watching Boardwalk up...wow. I had a feeling ole Owen wasn't gonna make it, but I didn't expect this. Although you should have known once they showed him walking into the bathhouse at the :52 minute mark. They need to stop telegraphing things like that. You can kill someone in the middle of a show. I think it came at the optimal time. He was getting a little too good to be true. Why would he want Margaret with the baggage of 2 kids, and one on the way...one of those kids with polio, who happens to be married to essentially a mob boss. That was getting silly. Rosetti is brilliant...really brilliant. He is the quintessential 'mad dog'. The show is going to lose SO much when he ultimately gets put down. Masarea is an interesting character too. I love the speech pattern and the accent. He borders on stereotype(Bocce ball while eating grapes) but the guy pulls it off. I get the complaints about Buscemi. He constantly seems awkward and uncomfortable like he is wearing an ill fitting suit, but I think that's the point. Nucky is basically at heart, a politician...yet he tries to hold his own with established gangsters. The scenes where Nucky is dealing with other politicians he seems perfectly at ease...actually in control, because he does have that gangsters edge. Yet when he has to deal with real gangsters he seems hopelessly outclassed and tries to bully his way through which never seems to work. Makes him seem like a bratty child. So I do think some of that is intentional. Good season so far, looking forward to the conclusion.

    haha, ya. i went from nearly yacking when i saw the head come off to almost laughing when he said "you owe me".

    gotta agree with JD about nucky. his awkwardness is what, for me, maintains his whole politician thing.

    i wonder if chalky is going to react in any way to nucky not wanting to make babette's a negro club.

    i kind of got the feeling owen knew he was a goner when nucky decided to go after masseria (and was obviously going to have his henchman do the job). it was the promises he was making to margaret ALONG WITH the one he made to katie... like he was telling them reassuring things before he left.

    That's a hellova thing. Well thought out. Nicely done. I found myself really moved by characters I had stopped really believing in for a while. And now...Nucky is trying to get over the loss of button nose(wow...Rosetti reading the obit over the phone...brutal) and Margaret CLEARLY letting Nucky know where her heart lay...or is it lie...? Did Owen know he was going to die???? Now i gotta wonder. Gonna be a lot of division and addition these last 2 eps. Gotta figger Rothstein is going to learn of the dealings behind his back...lines redrawn...interesting developments. Looks like Chalky is gonna factor in too. Does the show have the balls to END nucky? It's the obvious end game...NOT SURE. Shannon's gonna figger in, and so is Capone. This show has a lot of wild cards in play at this point.

    yes! i almost forgot about the reading of the obit. damn, that WAS cold!

    at first, i thought margaret was just freaking out at nucky because he was basically responsible for her lover's death, but man, it was pretty gut wrenching for me when they showed the second part of their conversation that caused owen to be late to the meeting. i wonder how nucky's gonna take all that in. apparently, the lady that plays margaret is pregnant in real life so i wonder how much of that they'll write in to the series. (side note: i did not realize she was the same lady/girl from trainspotting)!

    lol. button nose... ugh, that chick's nose bugged the hell out of me. i was kind of glad they killed her off. haha.
