HBO has just released the episode descriptions for the final two episodes of Boardwalk Empire this morning. As if he didn’t already, it looks like Nucky will really have his hands full in these final two weeks. Have a look for yourself:
“Under God’s Power She Flourishes”
Debut: SUNDAY, DEC. 4 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT)
With Margaret (Kelly Macdonald) pondering the consequences of sin, Nucky (Steve Buscemi) prepares her for a worst-case scenario as Esther Randolph (Julianne Nicholson) plays out her trump cards. Jimmy (Michael Pitt) revisits his college days with Angela (Aleksa Palladino) and Gillian (Gretchen Mol); Mickey Doyle (Paul Sparks) chafes at sharing his liquor profits; Eli (Shea Whigham) refuses to cop a plea. Nelson’s (Michael Shannon) past comes back to haunt him, tipping the scale in Nucky’s favor.
Written by Howard Korder; directed by Allen Coulter.
“To the Lost” (Season Finale)
Debut: SUNDAY, DEC. 11 (9:00-10:00 p.m.)
With Nucky’s trial looming, Jimmy looks to make amends. After weighing an offer from Esther Randolph, Margaret makes a decision that will change the course of her future – and Nucky’s.
Written by Terence Winter; directed by Tim Van Patten.
HBO plans to show a sneak peek of their new series ‘Luck’ following the December 11th season finale of Boardwalk Empire. Don’t forget to update your DVRs!
