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>

Goofs

While Manny Horvitz is portrayed as having a day job as a butcher, he's shown using a honing-steel on his butchers knife in a less than optimal fashion. One's supposed to drag the knife both along the edge but also from bottom to tip on the honing-steel itself, not just along the blades edge as shown by the character, who should know better as it's insinuated that he has worked as a butcher for a long time.
