Nucky arrives in Belfast with a coffin; he's come to bury his father. While there, he meets with John McGarrigle to make an offer. McGarrigle balks at doing business with Nucky and may favor a deal with the Brits. At home, Emily has fallen ill. Jimmy serves up Manny Horvitz to Waxey Gordon. Chalky gives the word for Black workers to walk off their jobs. U.S. Assistant District Attorney Esther Randolph is interested in Nucky's father's funeral, and with Jimmy in the radio audience, Jack Dempsey enters the fourth round of his fight against Georges Carpentier. Is Jimmy Nucky's Carpentier or is Randolph Nucky's Dempsey? Written by <>
