Where is Chalky?
5 November 2012 | by (London) – See all my reviews

As an avid fan of The Sopranos, it's good to see writer and creator Terence Winter and director Tim Van Patten team up and follow a gangster related theme with Boardwalk Empire. They make some of the best episodes of the series; A Return to Normalcy, 21, Two Boats and a Lifeguard, To The Lost

"The Pony" follows the aftermath of lookalike-Jimmy's death, which leads to a great stand-off scene between Nucky and Gillian. We catch up with Van Alden as he is meeting with the Chicago crew and installing a whiskey-set at home. Sigrid is helping out; the Norwegian 17th of May is coming up. The Thompson brothers have made peace (for now?), but still has to deal with season 3 villain Gyp Rosetti (great scenes in last weeks episode, church preach and with Masseria). Harrow is still looking out for/after Jimmy Jr, but will he stay on Gillian's side? Nucky is accused for being an interlope.

But where is CHALKY WHITE in all this? He had a great storyline going on with the Ku Klux Klan in "Anastasia" and "21".
