Nucky travels to Chicago and acts as kingmaker during the Presidential convention when he backs an underdog candidate, Warren G. Harding, a corrupt and not very intelligent U.S. senator with several mistresses. Nucky , in turn, works against Senator Edge when he discovers that he gave Jersey City mayor Frank Hague the highway funding he was counting on to bring more visitors to Atlantic City. In Nucky's absence, rival mobsters sense weakness in his organization and rob his primary casino, severely wounding brother Eli in the process. Eli is now forced to trust Margaret as part of his organization and to recruit back Jimmy Darmody to counter the growing power of Rothstein and Luciano. Written by

In the episode, Nucky volunteers to keep Presidential candidate Harding's mistress and her illegitimate child under wraps with the rest of the mistresses in Atlantic City. In reality, Harding's paramour was ensconced in Asbury Park until the election. See more
There is a part where some guys are watching an old 'vintage' movie.
When the manual projector fails and the film itself is catching fire the man operating the machine uses a blanket to extinguish the fire. This however is not possible. Back in the early days nitrate-film was used, which is highly flammable and most importantly self-sustaining when is on fire, due the high amount of oxygen-molecules in the material. See more
