Richard Harrow: In Memoriam

Richard Harrow: In Memoriam

Boardwalk Empire came to a heartbreaking close on Sunday night with Farewell Daddy Blues. To celebrate one of the show’s most beloved characters, and the esteemed Jack Huston’s portrayal, HBO has put together a touching video, offering glimpses of his journey throughout the four seasons of the show so far. Boardwalk Empire returns next year for its fifth season. Until then, we’ll be providing all the latest...

Boardwalk Empire Season 4: Farewell Daddy Blues

Boardwalk Empire Season 4: Farewell Daddy Blues

Season 4 of Boardwalk Empire was capped off this past Sunday in bittersweet fashion. As I sat on my couch watching the credits roll I had one question rolling through my mind – “What the f*** just happened?” I’m sure many of you felt the same. That emotional tug in your gut and throat that has you repeating… “no… no no it can’t be over. Not like that!” Well, my friends, unfortunately we must all wait another long, cold year before our return to the Boardwalk. In the meantime lets go over what went down in this epic season...

Boardwalk Empire Season 4: Havre de Grace

Boardwalk Empire Season 4: Havre de Grace

This week’s Boardwalk Empire took its time and carefully tracked three main plot threads, paving the way for next week’s season finale. Chalky and Daughter are still on the run, Eli is still betraying Nucky, and Gillian… Oh Gillian, you brought this one on yourself, but I feel so bad for you just the same. Take a deep, cleansing breath and let’s recap this week’s episode, Havre de Grace. Chalky and Daughter: Chalky has hitched another ride, this time to see someone named Louis Gossett Jr. as Oscar– who hopefully won’t shoot him. Apparently Louis...

Boardwalk Empire Season 4: White Horse Pike

Boardwalk Empire Season 4: White Horse Pike

Relatively early in this week’s episode, Chalky makes a short but meaningful statement, publicly letting his men know that he and Richard are “friends”. The concept of friendship versus partnership, while not immediately apparent, is a key undertone in Boardwalk Empire. This sentiment came to a head this week, as the final pieces are set for the last two episodes of the season. Friendship can contaminate partnership, and vice-versa. Never was this idea as apparent as it was in White Horse Pike. The episode begins and ends with Eli, and this choice is significant. Eli is...

Boardwalk Empire Season 4: Marriage and Hunting

Boardwalk Empire Season 4: Marriage and Hunting

A lot of people are struggling, both personally and professionally, as evidenced in this episode. Chalky is convinced (and rightfully so) that Dunn Purnsley was acting on the behest of Narcisse. Narcisse seeks to crucify Chalky by any means. I don’t know what bothered me more – that Chalky was being lectured by Nucky or that Nucky was not showing any respect to his old friend, who when times were very tough, came to his aid. I don’t like the way Nucky was being a bit of a jerk to Chalky. I get the moral undertone – he doesn’t want Chalky to be explosive and get out of hand or let...

Boardwalk Empire Season 4: The Old Ship of Zion

Boardwalk Empire Season 4: The Old Ship of Zion

While this week’s episode omitted certain storylines and character arcs in an effort to narrow Boardwalk Empire‘s wide lens, the main focus was undoubtedly on Chalky. It’s great to finally see Michael Kenneth Williams get screentime worthy of his ability, a multifaceted ability which defines both the episode and the show itself. The Old Ship of Zion brings this season’s second act to a tense and chilling close, and in pure Boardwalk style, the board is set (for the most part) for an explosive final act. Although I will admit that Willie’s inclusion as a major...

Boardwalk Empire Season 4: William Wilson

Boardwalk Empire Season 4: William Wilson

We’ve had a busy week, so make sure you refresh your memory and get last week’s recap so we can dive into this week’s episode full throttle! This episode checked in with a lot of characters and plot lines, so hang on; it’s going to be a bumpy ride. You may want to take notes. Lucky Luciano checks in with Joe Masseria. Ol’ Joe is going to send him back to Florida to do business with Petrucelli, Nucky’s partner in the land deal– but that’s as simple as it gets. Al Capone is running around unhinged, and murders a police officer in broad daylight...

Boardwalk Empire Season 4: The North Star

Boardwalk Empire Season 4: The North Star

A lot of interesting things went down in this particular episode. Where to begin? This episode may well have been titled, “Love, Land and Lust.” After an awkward meeting with Margaret, Nucky reflects about things being literally “right under his nose and never noticing.” A lot of things took place under his nose and he was blind to them, half the time. Last season, he couldn’t see the forest for the trees where Billie and Owen/Margaret were concerned. We all know how that turned out. Margaret is reluctant to reveal anything personal about herself to Nucky; in fact, she almost...

Boardwalk Empire Season 4: Erlkönig

Boardwalk Empire Season 4: Erlkönig

“All you can count on is blood.” Family and vengeance were the driving themes in this week’s episode of ‘Boardwalk Empire.’ The poem ‘Erlkönig,’ as explained by Eddie and Agent Knox, depicts a child and father riding through the woods on their way home. The son begins to tremble in fear of supernatural beings in the woods but his father assures him that all is well. At poem’s end, the son has died in his grieving father’s arms. Al and Frank. Gillian and Tommy. Nucky and Will. Van Alden’s search for respect. Eddie and his past life....

Boardwalk Empire Season 4: All In

Distracted by the government shutdown, the watchers forgot to watch what they were supposed to be watching. The weekend is approaching fast, so let’s catch up on the best gangster show on television before we fall behind. Here’s a recap of last week, in case you missed it: Making the First Powerpoint Presentation at the FBI Agent Knox, the amiable agent with the voluminous vocabulary, is making a prolific presentation for Director Hoover and Friends. He’s got graphs and whiteboards and everything, just like Karl Rove bouncing up and down on Fox News, laughing his fat ass...
