*** This review may contain spoilers ***

When Gillian killed of the Jimmy look a like it was for a reason. We open with the fake body being cremated. Nelson returns with some guys setting up a machine in his house so he can pay them off. Emily's birthday is coming up and they are getting her a pony. News comes to Nucky that Jimmy drowned even though he knows it was his gun that killed Jimmy. Al is in Chicago in a whore house having a meeting. While discussing Jimmy's son Nucky comes to talk to Gillian. He overs his sympathies for Jimmy's death. By throwing water in his face the lie breaks and the two fight about him killing her son. He tells her she exists in the town because of him. Margaret at the mothering school is visited by the women she offered to help. The women tells her that when she met her bleeding she did it on purpose to kill her baby. Nelson cannot sleep during the night when the water drops from the machine. Nelson becomes part of the gangsters being the muscle. While making the deal once again Pompaii is brought up. Owen and Margaret go looking for Emily's new pony where Owen is looking very much at the pony examining it. Billie is auditioning for films and is able to make the whole crew laugh. Nucky meets with Andrew W. Mellon in New York to talk about arresting someone. While looking for the pony it starts to rain leaving Owen and Margaret in the car talking about the decision of getting Emily the pony. When at work Nelson is forced to try sell an iron to one of the most annoying men. Everyone starts to laugh at him which forces him to iron the man's face and go crazy. Nucky comes to meet Billie and when a young guy talks back to him they start to fight to. When Billie makes the others leave so she can talk to Nucky about how angry he got. She tells her to just be hers and not Margaret's. In the middle of the night Nelson packs because he wants to leave. Nelson's wife tells him that she can make extra product they can sell to the Ukraine. Gillian pays Lucky off to make him leave and Margaret asks for two diaphragm's so she can get the women's pregnancy gone, also her own. Gillian calls in Gyp to her whore house to tell him where Nucky will be so he can take care of him. Nucky gets a call from Andrew who tells him to go through with the deal. Just as Nucky is amount to go to the club he stops to talk to someone even though Billie is right beside the door when the explosion happens.
