Starting out with series 1 next week, I'm a huge Stephan Graham fan and this has slipped past me for to long now and there are some other big names in it I see, can't wait

I LOVE it--but how can they do a Series 3 when they pretty much killed off or destroyed so many main characters too soon in the Series 2 finale?? The real life Nucky was even cleverer & went on thru the 1920s. [Also didn't have that nauseating wife] Great show though and Buscemi is superb as always.

I think this season will probably be a test of whether it makes or breaks the series.

I can't wait. So excited. But something tells me Margaret won't get what's coming to her until season 4.

I think it'll be ok without Jimmy. It'll give other people, and newbies, more breathing space. (i hope Jimmy's dirty, sexy mum is still around, yumitty yum)

Indeed. Glad to see Richard is still a stone cold killer.

If this thread is US pace, it must be OK to ask who Richard Harrow is working for now - himself? Avenging his friend?

I've got in a right muddle with all the gangsters: who's with whom and what their territories are.

I think he is in some sort of business with Jimmy's mother.

Richard's working for Gillian, Jimmy's rather messed up & disturbing mother. She told the escorts (?) that he was the caretaker. He seems to just look after the kid.


His killing of the Forsythe's character was IMO obviously simply revenge for Angela (Jimmy's wife).

Maybe, but she asked him if he was going out that evening, it didn't sound as though they were conspiring together

Maybe it's too subtle for me

Matt's suggestion figures, but he's doing it on his own account not under instruction from Gillian, who's most anxious that Angela should be forgotten.

That's what I think now, thanks for the feedback

Good episode but strange at the same time. Does anybody else feel like me that they are not watching what was originally intended for this show. Especially the killing of Jimmy and the turn around of Van Alden.

Agreed that there should be no need for spoilers. I was just unsure if the poster had watched the episode, but I doubt people will be reading the thread if they haven't. I also agree that I think Richard is somehow employed by Gillian but was working on his own with regards to the shooting. I wonder if he'll go after Nucky?

Also, who else felt a bit nervous for that poor dog, before the gangster gave it away?

Dan, I wasn't criticising your use of spoiler alert, far from it - being the first episode it would have literally spoiled it for the William Forsythe fan. I was just excusing myself for introducing discussion of the assassination in a roundabout way

I felt nervous for the dear doggie from the moment it appeared on screen, becoming a wreck until it was handed over I have not registered what Mrs Nucky's attitude to animals is, she can be pretty ruthless and is steeped in superstition.

I'm not clear on what you're asking, but note that time has passed since Jimmy and Angela's demise.
