Boardwalk Empire Spaghetti and Coffee
24 September 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

New York City and its Eku who has just gotten out of prison, when he finds out his brother is still alive and running the show it does not make him happy because now he could be at risk. Gyp is living outside of the main town but he still can make his way into town. Margaret seems to badly affected by seeing the women have a miscarriage but when she wants to help all she is told is it's not worth her time. Nucky is once again sleeping with another women but it seems she has her own secrets from him and all this scene was done with the women naked. We finally see Chalky White for our first time this season who finds a new doctor in the form of his son. Margaret visits the women and it seems she has been grieve stricken but the women seems to be OK with what has happened. Margaret gets her backbone out when fighting the head doctor about the way women are treated in the hospital. Chucky again and we find out that his daughter seems to be having some problems. His daughter seems to not want to marry a man but with his values he insists on it. Eli is not fitting back into normal life as he seems to be lost with all his kids. Nucky with his "Humming Bird" and meets some of her friends. Dance hall but this time we get the more jazz Negro's of the time. At the dance someone gets cut but like Nucky Chucky can get one of his men to just start beating on someone who made one mistake. Owen comes to sell the liquor but with police there and then Gyp it seems that he is causing some problems for Nucky with all he does to make his plans go wrong. Nucky and his mistress seem to be much more happier then he and his wife then I have ever seen them. Maybe's it's because what they are doing is just about fun. The sale went bad but there's always next time. Nice episode but still I feel that there is something missing.

EPISODE GRADE: B (MVP: Bobby Canavale)
