While the crate reveal was well-done, it just wasn't suspenseful after last week's episode. I knew Owen was a dead man walking after that and I really doubted Masseria would go down this early. Still, sucks to be you, Owen. I figured it was going to be Nucky or even Gyp, but it being Masseria, with an assist from Lucky/Bugsy, was a decent twist. Wish I would feel bad for Margaret, but I don't. In fact, the truly evil side wants to see Nucky and now single Katie hook-up. Margaret probably go on a warpath it that happened.
That said, Nucky is still showing himself to be incompetent and digging himself deeper in a hole. His only allies are Eli, fucking Mickey Doyle of all people, and a few other guys, who really haven't done anything important. He continues to treat Chalky like shit, even though there is a guy who probably could be a big help to him. The plan just seemed flimsy and not really well thought out. Now, his best man is dead, and he has to contend with Masseria, who knows what he did, and Gyp, who has all the man power. Add that Creepy Gillian will no doubt find ways to help fuck him over, and he kind of seems boned right now. Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
I also wonder though if Rothstein might be on shaky ground. He refused to back the heroin trade and now his allies have jumped to another buyer. I love him, but I wonder if he's trying too hard to play it safe and it might bite him in the ass.
Van Alden and Capone! Now, there is a duo that is Must See TV. I can't wait to see where this goes.
Cue "Gyp is a violent motherfucker" scene. And done!
Yay, Richard! Now, please don't do something horrible to him, show. Let him remain happy and standing, while all the bastards and bad men fall.
