Boardwalk Empire The Milkmaid's Lot
12 November 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

On the Boardwalk the explosion of the club has caused a lot of wreckage. Nucky being tested by the doctor needs time to heal. The Thompson family all move into a hotel room because of the explosion and how it was for Nucky. Margaret talks to Owen as he is surrounded by men and also organizing a party. Nucky then comes in to get himself a drink. Nucky is told they could not get the pony because the hotel would not take it. A police officer has to ring the phone saying that Gyp is back in town. When he try's to escape into a top room Gyp comes in beating him with his stick. Still taking meetings in his office and his head is starting to hear and sounds and confuse people. During the meeting Gyp calls the house and he talks about Billie being dead. Nucky is calling in help because he needs help to kill some people. Gyp takes everyone from the town he has taken over to get them to stay quiet about what he is doing. While Tommy is playing with Josephine, Gillian calls her to work stopping her from playing with him. Remis is arrested in his home and he tells he has receipts and cannot get arrested. When Nucky comes into room once again he is forgetting and everyone seems to notice him acting in a weird away. After he cuts the cake wrong he falls to the ground while thinking of his last glimpse of Billie. Owen offers Margaret a way out to get away from her life with Nucky and get to a normal life. Richard brings Julia go to a party together. Tommy also walks in on Josephine doing her job he would not see. While dancing with Richard Julia kiss while dancing at the party. While pucking in the toilet Nuckt finds Billie's lost earing on the floor in the corner. Nucky shows Margaret the earing but it was someone else's. Margaret lets Nucky have it by telling him to get better and take care of business. To his associates Nucky tells his plan even calling everyone in the room a partner of him so he can get back on top. No one backs him and they all leave only because they felt sorry for him. If last week's episode and this week's the show seems to be finally be producing good work again.
