Storyline

After the unsuccessful attempt to assassinate Nucky on the Boardwalk fails, Harrow is assigned to guard Margaret and the kids. Initially they are repulsed by his appearance, but they soon see him as a friend. Torrio becomes furious over Capone's childishness, and the gangster's protégé promises his mentor he will act more maturely in the future. Jimmy mistakenly believes Dittrich is cuckolding him with Angela and beats the photographer so severely he ends up in the hospital, prompting Mary to propose running away to Paris with Angela and her son. In order to strike back at Lansky and his operation Nucky has Chalky feign displeasure with his organization in order to trap the D'Alessios. Written by duke1029@aol.com

Trivia

Margaret tells Richard that she is reading to the children out of "The Wizard of Oz," later the basis for The Wizard of Oz (1939). Oddly, both the book pictured on-screen and the text spoken come from "Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz," the fourth book in L. Frank Baum's famous Oz series. See more »

Goofs

Meyer Lansky refers to "what the lawyers call 'due diligence'." The phrase comes from the Securities Exchange Act of 1933. See more »
