Anastasia was in charge of Murder Inc and a legitimate psychopath.

Same Reason Nucky became Nucky "Thompson" instead of the real Nucky "Johnson."

It gives the writers more room to do what they want without the history people crying foul.

Wow. Quite the finish to that episode.

The shovel to the head by Gyp and then Slater being sent to Nucky in a crate.

Capone and Eli will step up for Nucky. And someone from Rothstein's crew is gonna pay for tipping off Masseria.

I knew the moment Owen was sent to take care of Masseria it was going to end bad. Shame, Owen was a GREAT character.

Yeah, it was obvious as soon as he said he could handle it with a small crew in the meeting with Nucky. I wish they would have showed that scene of him getting killed, but they elected to go with the shock and awe of Mrs. Nucky seeing the crate opened.

Be interesting to see if Nucky goes after Luciano, Rothstein, the short bald guy ... or all of em. Not knowing what really happened in history and how close they wanna stick to that.

So.... Instead of placing a bomb in a crowded restaurant and killing dozens of innocent civilians, all Gyp really had to do was mail Nucky a large unmarked package at 4'oclock in the morning.

Or was Gyp's intentions to take out Nucky, Rothstein, Luciano, etc?

Previews seem to show Chalky aligning with someone, although they make it vague as to who. Obviously Nucky will come out of this, so you wonder whether it's Chalky or Capone that gets him there. Chalky and Capone are two of my top 3 characters on this show, so either way it should be fun.

Capone and the real Nucky were friends, so I see Capone coming in and taking Rosetti out himself. Capone is the only one who could take on Masseria and get away with it.

As for Rothstein, I don't want to spoil anything for those who don't know the history since he's a little less well known than most of the other gangsters. Obviously we all know Luciano isn't going anywhere until the Feds deport him much later in his life.

I know that the time frame we are working with would open it up for them to include Rothstein's death, but I wonder how much liberty they will take with the actual events. The reason I bring this up is because he seemed to be interested in the heroin plans of Lansky/Luciano, but wanted them to wait. Now that they've moved on with Masseria, I wonder if the writers of the show will align Rothstein with Nucky to close out this season? That's just a wild guess, I don't know.

Lucciano tipped off Joe the Boss. He told him Nucky was going to make a move while trying to get him to back the heroin deal since Rothstein passed for the time being.

If I was Nucky, I would send Harrow to watch and stalk Masseria. All he needs is one clear shot from about any sniper's vantage point.

I could listen to Stephen Root's character talk for hours......

Thinking Harrow is going to die in the finale. Once the whore is gone, his story line loses substance. This series already has enough terrible female roles bringing it down without having to add another. He's gonna take down the whorehouse, and a chunk of Gyp's men, and then he goes down with it. Great character, but not much future. They're gonna take him out while his stock is high.

Be interesting to see if Gyp can get to Jimmy's mom and/or half/face.

Great start to this season.



I see Gyp stopping at nothing less than making a play for AC.

Owen is a bit character this season. I see Gyp taking him out and Nukkie having to turn to Ely for help.


I love Mickey Doyle.

I think his intent will be to get outta Dodge with the girl and the kid but that he ends up getting taken out. While I think they're gonna cliffhanger this war for next season, they'll definitely kill off at least one main character next week, and he seems to be a likely candidate.

And BTW, nice call on Gyp JB.

Can't wait for Capone to be a more regular character. This show has gone from Good to Great to I Can't Effing Wait For 9 PM On Sundays.

Te slow burn they pulled off with Harrow this season is incredible. Every episode, just nudge him a little bit farther, and the payoff is going to fantastic.

Harrow is such a great character. He's arguably completely insane and also the sanest character on the show. And the performance, wow.

Let's hope one of the bullets in that arsenal of his has Grandma's name on it.

What a great show.

There's no way Gillian makes it out of the finale alive, and Harrow will be the last face she sees.

I also think Harrow survives. I think the writers WANT to keep him around for another season.

Hell, I could watch a show about Harrow.

Not bad, not bad at all. Harrow's rampaging was by far the best part of the episode.

I know this would never happen especially on HBO, but does any one else feel that the Capone N. Side of Chicago story should have its own spin off.

Also I know there is allot of Gillian hate on this thread but her last scene talking to Nucky was great.

I will be really disappointing if they end the show in 1929, so much good gangster shit happens in the early 30s , like the rise of Albert Anastasia, and Luciano's power grab and the killing of Joe Masseria.

Best season so far, and I loved the season finale. They really set up some nice future plot lines and wrapped up the AC war pretty well. I do wish they had expanded on the Dion O'Bannion character more, they pretty much introduced him, linked him Van Alden, and then bailed on him. But season 4 should be heavy on the Chicago story line, the North/South side wars and the transition of power from Torrio to Capone.

It's going to be hard to top last season, but I'm really looking forward to the return of this show.

It's just going to be frustrating having to wait an extra hour to watch Breaking Bad for the first few weeks. I don't have HBO and have to go to my friend's house to watch it.

Good thing the Browns don't have any Sunday night games. Then again, I think I'd watch BW and BB over the Browns right now.

Read any teasers? There's some brother on the previews lookin all Shug. maybe swinging Chalkly into a key role this season, which is good.

I'm just glad Gillian is dead. Plot drag.

Concern there will be lots of dead time with Maggie and Nucky post dalliances.
Really, I could care less about these two.

They left Gillian as kind of a cliffhanger if I remember right, she was still sorta alive in hallway after the shootout.

She's listed as a character appearing in season 4.

But Ron Livingston is joining the cast, so that's pretty cool.

I hope they do something good with Van Alden this season. Last year it seemed like they didn't know what to use him for but kept his character going just enough to give Michael Shannon to do. Because Michael Shannon is awesome.

I hope he gets sucked in deeper to Capone's crew...and then Nucky takes a trip to Chicago.

Screeners went out to reviewers, and they're all saying the first episode is bloody with our man Harrow doing some killing.

Michael Shannon has a big, interesting face. He plays a man devoid of humor. When he smiles, it looks painful. Dude can act.

I think you're definitely going to see more Capone, I get the feeling they're gonna speed up the timeline on the Chicago beer wars. Lots of shootings/beatings/stabbings.

I'm not sure Harrow can top his Angel of Death act to end last season. Character wise, how he fits into the plot, i'm not sure how much more mileage you can get out of him. I hate seeing a good character getting shoehorned into the story.

Episode 1 - KP4.

No real earth shattering set ups or openers.

Do wonder about what Harrow's role is long-term.

This definitely was a table-setting episode, and my one complaint is the episode had no internal narrative closure. It was just an Act 1 with a cut to credits (With lots of boobs. Hooray, Boobs!!).

It's still better than most other TV, but I think the writers were thinking too "big picture" when they put this episode to bed.

I will echo the Warming Glow reviewer's quote: I would watch a show that was just about Harrow wandering around the Midwest shooting people.

He's going to be around a long time. They didn't send him home to Wisconsin on a whim -- there's a plan there.

I liked when Melvin killed that guy with the bottle. Nucky kicking that chick out was pretty funny.

And I told you, they're gonna ruin Harrow. He should have died on Julia's doorstep after saving Tommy.

I already like Dr. Narcisse after one episode. Dude is cold and calculating. I'm not sure if they're setting him up as the main antagonist or not. Van Alden has gone from a domineering figure with the Prohibition Agency, to a meek guy trying to eek out a living working for people he fears.

I was surprised to see them bring in J. Edgar Hoover. I really have no idea where they're going with Harrow. I have no interest in seeing him live a farm life.

Harrow was scarred emotionally by last year's shootout, this is his attempt to "move on."

It won't work as we already are starting to see. He'll be back in Jersey soon, more ruthless than ever.

With Dr. Narcisse comes a pretty cool new plot setting: The Harlem Renaissance.

I am pretty sure his character is loosely based on Marcus Garvey.
