The preview show that HBO was running yesterday mentioned that Season 3 picks up about 18 months after Season 2 ended. Harrow was still very much affected by Angela's murder.
I do wonder, though, if Nucky may have gotten to Harrow and had Horowitz killed. If you remember, Horowitz mentioned something to Nucky about wanting his own still as consideration for doing the job in Willow Grove. Nucky was already moving forward with the plan to consolidate all of his liquor purchases with one buyer. Horowitz had devolved into little more than a hitman for Nucky, but I wonder if Nucky could've seen Horowitz as at least an annoyance looking to infringe on his own operation if he got his own still. Nucky already had enough on his hands trying to make sure Doyle was doing his job; the last thing he needed was another side operation to have to watch.
Stoosh wrote:Thoughts on Episode 2, dudes...Spoiler:1. Along with what Wicked Child said, seemed like a classic "second episode of the season" episode. After last week's season premiere, this one took a decided step back and let some storylines settle in, all while setting the stage for what looks to be some very good turns as the season goes on.
2. "Let me ask you something, Mickey. How the f*** are you still alive?" One of the best lines of the series.
3. Love what Rosetti brings to the table in this series. I can't quite figure out of he's really that dumb and gets by on some mix of charm/intimidation, or if it's all an act to keep people at arm's length until he gets a better read on what he's dealing with. After the premier, I would've said more the former, but after seeing how he played Nucky by buying out the access to the fuel station via the sheriff, maybe it's the latter. Or maybe he's just the right kind of "smart" to have moved that high up the chain.
Either way, his unpredictable temper elevates the tension in every scene he's in. I kept waiting for him to start beating the gas station attendant half to death, or shoot up the diner after the waitress said they didn't have wine.
4. Nucky's ability (or lack thereof) to control his feelings over Billie Kent is going to make for a good plot line. It cost him when Owen tried to notify Nucky of the filling station standoff (life long before cell phones). It was already fairly apparent that Rothstein has some sort of history with her beyond him just being her landlord, and he doesn't hesitate to rub Nucky's face in that either.
5. The razor scene threw me a bit, too. Nucky's first wife killed herself after their child died (she slashed her wrists with Nucky's razor), so I think there was some symbolism there. Nucky reminding himself not to get too close to Billie? Maybe lamenting the fact that he knows he can't have the life he wants with Billie? Not sure.
Nucky carries on his tryst with Billie Kent in her New York City apartment. His bliss is short-lived, however, once Billie takes a flirtatious phone call in his presence. His jealousy grows when he finds unfamiliar beard trimmings in a safety razor in her bathroom cabinet.

Things are going to get interesting. Rothstein wants his shipment, Rosetti isn't going to let Nucky through... so something has to give.
Cannot stand Margaret. HATE her, in fact. I cringe every time she's on the screen.
Nucky's near obsession w Billie is going to lead to some fireworks (besides in the bedroom)
Wondering where the van Alden story line is heading...
