Trivia:
The purple magazine that Gillian peruses is the March 1920 issue of Photoplay. Actress Alice Joyce is the cover model about whom Gillian asks Angela, "Do you think she's pretty?" A readers poll in Ladies' World Magazine in 1915 (five years prior to this episode's events), Alice Joyce came in as second most popular film actress, after Mary Pickford.See more »

For my love to find, 18 May 2017
Author: Antonella from Argentina

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This was my first crush with Boardwalk Empire. Sure, the previous episodes are hooking, but this definitely was the episode that I think "I'm going to love this". And I did it, in fact.

This is not like the previous episodes, with the war between the gangsters, this is a fight between the personalities of the characters and I love that.

We had a Jimmy taking care of Pearl, he seems so cute with her in a way we hadn't see with Angela. Michael and Emily had an amazing chemistry and their scenes are worth watching. The end for Pearl was quite sad, but I love when Jimmy goes to Chinatown to smoke in her memory.

I like the way Nucky's teaching how to play in the big leagues to Eli, but I feel sad for him because he's always going to live in his shadow.

Margaret isn't my favorite character, but I liked her in this episode and she playing with Nucky.

Alongside that, I really enjoy the small appearances of Arnold and Nelson.

+ The fight between Margaret and Nucky.

+ The beginning of Margaret-Nucky's story.

+ The Celtic dinner.

+ Jimmy and Pearl.

+ The "Night in Ballygran" sequence.

- I don't like Gillian, at all.

9.2/10
