does harrow know nucky offed jimmy? He sort of hinted at it with the "you know that feeling" or whatever comment. Or I guess, does he care.

When lucky is talking to jillian about remodeling her "house" he says something like "my names not on the deed, jimmys is." she says "he'll sign that over when he gets back". Did I miss something there?

Spoiler:
I'm not sure if he knows specifically that Nucky killed Jimmy, but he knows that he is a killer.

I think Jimmy's mother was either making light of the fact that her son was dead, or basically giving the finger to Lucky w that comment... maybe both.

Spoiler:
Nucky always got someone else to do his dirty work for him, though. Which is why I was a bit perplexed.

Eli is getting the Tabor Heights Sheriff Job. Rosetti knows from Jillian that Nucky thinks of him as a disposable commodity. I predict the next episode will have a high profile character offed.

Spoiler:
True. If he does know (or suspect) that Nucky killed Jimmy, maybe he doesn't care that much. It was clear that he cared about Angela... not as sure about Jimmy.

At any rate, him working for Nucky could be very interesting.

Spoiler:
I was pretty sure that Harrow knows that Nucky killed Jimmy. Didn't Nucky ask Harrow if he was coming after him and his family and then Harrow answered with something like, "No, Jimmy knew the risks. He was a soldier"?

Anyhow, I think Harrow has to start working for Nucky at some point. Nucky probably needs more muscle for the upcoming fight with Rosetti, and Harrow is too good of a character to be wasted as the bartender at Jillian's brothel.

Yeah, I think you're right. Forgot all about those comments. And I agree... Harrow needs to be moving on up.

The "Jimmy was a soldier" line summed it up for me. Harrow knows and doesn't care. I hope Jack Huston gets some award recognition for his work as Harrow.

Indeed. It's been quite awhile since we had a great Capone scene.

I forgot that the actor who plays Capone is a Brit. He's good. He was also a bit player in Band of Brothers.

He also played Turkish's right hand man, Tommy, in Snatch.

Turkish: [looks at the caravan] Look at it. How am I suppose to run this thing from that? We'll need a proper office. I want a new one, Tommy. You're going to buy it for me.
Tommy: Why me?
Turkish: Well, you know about caravans.
Tommy: How's that?
Turkish: You spent a summer in one, which means you know more than me. And I don't want to have my pants pulled down over the price.
Tommy: What's wrong with this one?
Turkish: [Pulls the caravan's door from its hinges] Oh, nothing, Tommy. It's tiptop. It's just I'm not sure about the colour.

I knew I knew the Capone guy from somewhere else. Band of Brothers it is.

Good episode

Spoiler:
how long until nucky finds out about Owen and Margaret? Also rosetti is awesome. The waitress scene was great and the "redhead" one was too. Maybe now nucky listens more to Eli. Presumably he makes Eli kill Mickey Doyle and gives him the position.

it would be nice if eli took over for mickey, but mickey stayed as his underling--mickey makes a good sidekick.

if they base mickey off of his real life counterpart...
Spoiler:
he lives into the 30's where he meets a demise in AC by unknown assailants.

This week's episode....Whooooooaahhhhh

Spoiler:
1. Finally came to realize why Rosetti wasn't dealt with earlier in the season - he's connected directly to Masseria.

2. Rothstein becomes an even more interesting character. He admonishes Nucky for risking the truce between Rothstein and Masseria and starting a subsequent turf war, but then lights the fire for it himself by ordering the hit on Rosetti.

3. Didn't realize the hit was coming until Nucky asked Owen if he was nervous, and Owen responded by saying it was "out of their hands."

4. Gillian is a whole new kind of crazy.

5. Not sure how it happens, but I have a feeling Gillian plays a part in Rosetti's fate. She's already acquainted with Rosetti. She's also in with Lucciano, who has ties to both Masseria and Rothstein/Lansky/Seigel. And now with the long-term future of her "dream" in question, I'll be interested to see if Nucky somehow uses the future of her brothel as leverage.

6. I felt bad for the original paperboy. And the waitress, actually.

7. Wonder what Chalky got at consideration for the visit he paid to Eddie Cantor.

8. Loved Cantor's comment to Billie at the end about Lucy.

speculation on no. 5:
Spoiler:
Moreso, Luciano's intermingling with the brothel will lend better help to nucky and lucky coming to a deal in exchange for booze considerations. I dont think luciano cares about his interest in the brothel for any other reason than having an excuse to come check out/keep an eye on the Atlantic City situation. Gillian will black widow Rosetti and make it look like an accident a la david carradine--this is how it shouldve went down anyway.

Spoiler:
I keep hoping Jimmy will be alive. But I think it will be Richard who will be the one to deal with Rosetti. I believe him and Eli will be the ones to do Nucky's dirty work from now till the future. Which is good. But I could easily see Jillian pulling out the act as well. She is desperate enough for money now that she would have no issues with that attack.

Not much of a spoiler: Cantor has always been the one making levity and this moment was the first time you've seen him serious. He was making a point that the only reason the show is going on is because of him and she isn't a star and never will be and she will be forgotten just like the last girl--it was poignant and brutal. Loved it.
