Concerned about losing his grip on Atlantic City, Nucky deliberates a counter-move while trying to learn who in his inner circle betrayed him. As agents scour the Treasurer's office for incriminating evidence, Margaret strikes a pose from the past to help Nucky avoid further trouble in the present. In New York, Arnold Rothstein puts Jimmy on hold, but Meyer Lansky and Lucky Luciano loom as possible trading partners. Chalky is badgered in prison by Dunn Purnsley, a fellow inmate with an ax to grind; Owen Sleater, an advance man for Irish nationalist John McGarrigle, scouts the Thompson residence; the Commodore introduces Eli to "the men who made this city."

Wow! Holy crap balls! A little bit of spoilers
3 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hang on because this episode just flies at 150 mph from start to finish. Wow! This episode to me just made this show go from really good to as good as the Sopranos! I just loved every minute of it. Ely's Judas to Nucky is unreal. The jail scene with Chalky (brilliantly acted), the scene with Jimmy getting his bad-ass on, and the end- I don't know how Nucky didn't propose to Margaret right there! Who wouldn't want that woman on your side! The story lines this season rock! AMAZING show. Amazing. Thank you Marty and Mark from those of us still in mourning that the Sopranos are gone! I can't wait to see what happens next.
