Storyline

Lucy's water breaks and labor starts; guilt overpowers Van Alden while at the hospital. Nucky's racketeering case gets sent to federal court where someone uses a New Jersey senator to pull some strings. Having reached the age of reason, Margaret's son makes his first confession, and the priest wants her to set an example; Nucky warns her not to trust the sanctity of the confessional. Owen's cheekiness seems limitless. Jimmy spots Manny's lieutenant on the boardwalk with Nucky; a series of crosses, double-crosses, and confrontations follow. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A Little Anti-Semitism Depicted ***
31 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As Mrs. Schroeder's 7 year old prepares to confess his sins, a stern priest tells him of the cruel Jews at the time of Christ's killing. This really went on in the 1920s and before? Terrible.

The guy who is Jewish can't pronounce "tuchas" correctly. Funny, he says "tref" meaning not kosher correctly.

Nucky will do just about anything to get around the charges against him for violating the Mann Act. How about stopping the importation of tramps all together, Mr. Thompson? Now, we're seeing the corruption of the Harding Administration with the Veteran's Department. Teapot Dome to follow?

That off the wall agent got found out by his wife. What a convenient excuse he made, and what a wonderful slap she gave back!
