Liveblog from last night, which is when I usually get to watch BE. Posted it to Tumblr, because I actually have people who watch the show over there, but Tumblr borked my cut, and it spoiled some v. awesome friends of mine who now want to kill me.


- Rose Van Alden, BRAVA. I knew you had it in you. Serve him those papers with a nice cup of "FUCK YOU, VAN ASSHOLE".

- N'awwww, Dad!Nucky is sweet.

- Twenty bucks says Teddy's going to fake having polio because no one's paying attention to him.

- Baby!gangsters! Al and his stupid face are hilarious as always, and I still have the urge to pick Meyer up by his suspenders and pat his head.

- What has this world come to when Mickey fucking Doyle talks sense?

- Also, JESUS H. TAPDANCING CHRIST JIMMY, PAY YOUR FUCKING DEBTS BEFORE MUNYA FUCKS YOU OVER. AS IN, KILLS YOUR WIFE.

- Oh, foreshadowing, how I love you. Jimmy, you should've gotten into the heroin business with Charlie and Meyer. They'll be multi-millionaires in a couple years, controlling the entire Mob mostly through the heroin business.

- Oh good, we're back to bitchy, whiny Nucky. I was getting worried he was growing too much of a soul or something.

- Okay, fine, I was spoiled about Nucky hiring Fallon, but I still totally marked out for the paper about the Black Sox scandal and was all "YOU COULD GO SEE ROTHSTEIN, DUMBASS".

- They've got to kill the Commodore off eventually. He was boring as fuck last season when he was sick, and got really interesting when he was well, and now that he's had the stroke, he's boring as fuck again. If he's not going to be a threat, can we just let Gillian shoot him in the head and have done with him?

- Hands up, who thought back in season 1 that ELI would be the voice of reason and sanity around there?

- ... I take it back about the Commodore. I LIKE him when he's dangerous, when he's plotting Nucky's demise or telling off his idiot son. KEEP HIM AS A THREAT.

- Can I just say how much I don't care about Margaret and this polio storyline? Also, good for her, bitchslapping her stupid pyromaniac kid who's faking polio.

- BAD PLAN. Can we not instigate a full-on race war that will end really, really badly?

- Dunn Purnsley, you gonna get killed. Just sayin'. I'm not putting odds on you lasting the season.

- Oooh, Eli passed the word to the strikebreakers to fuck up Halloran so he can't talk to Esther anymore. Vicious, and yet effective.

- IS THAT CAROLYN? DID WE GET OUR FIVE MORE SECONDS OF CAROLYN ROTHSTEIN?

- N'awww, fathers and sons and baseball. Feel the daddy issues in THAT room.

- AHAHAHAHA HE HAS A DRAWER FULL OF TY COBB BASEBALLS. AND ROTHSTEIN STANDING THERE SMIRKING AT IT.

- Fallon's a tool, but he's an honest tool. I kind of like that.

- "No one likes a long shot more than a gambler." *hearts* He is one of my very favorites.

- Eli, how do you get away with being such a shitty liar? How does that work?

- I hate Eli as a character, but goddamn, can Shea Whigham act. This scene, the one with Nucky at the funeral, the bit where he offs O'Neill, he just puts in these quietly awesome performances.

- Oh, Margaret, the church ain't gonna help. And fuck you, Father, her sex life didn't give her kid polio.

- O HAI RICHARD, WHAT UP?

- "Damn boy, ain't you got any notions at all?" No, Chalky, that's his problem. Idiot. I love him, he's very pretty, but he's an absolute moron a lot of the time.

- How much do I love that for the money parts, he doesn't bat an eye, but for the bit where Chalky asks him to deliver the three Klansmen, he looks right at Richard. Cause who else is gonna help him do that kind of work?

- Heee, I love that Margaret had to ask who Ty Cobb is.

- Oh dear god, are we giving Nucky a Dead Little Sister to go with his Dead Baby Son and Tragic Dead Wife? *headdesk*

- "Don't worry Dad, I won't tell." AUGH. TEDDY SCHROEDER I DO NOT LIKE YOU AND THEN YOU GO AND BE AN ADORABLE KID.

- Jimmy, seriously. Let Charlie Luciano and Meyer Lansky school you in How To Run Shit.

- I think it fairly significant that Richard still wears a newsboy cap, considering the symbolism layered on it. Even Meyer's graduated to a fedora. I think it'll be interesting if/when he finally gets one.

- Meyer Lanksy, eternal voice of reason. This is going to be happening a lot, isn't it? Also, n'awwww, Charlie. You don't like people calling you "Sal" at all.

- Seriously, do we realize how crazy it is that Mickey Doyle is warning Jimmy away from Manny Horovitz? HE IS SPEAKING THE TRUTH.

- And as a side note, HAH, I love everyone's "...the fuck?" looks when Jimmy says AC is his town. Even Richard's all "dude, I like you and all, but the fuck this is your town".

- Shut up, Van Asshole.

- YAY, Esther. I appreciate her bone-dry deadpan snark and willingness to bone her subordinate and make him call her "ma'am".

- "Not there, my wife will kill me." AHAHAHA, Manny you sly fuck. I do enjoy him, when he's not being absolutely fucking terrifying.

- Jimmy, there's a saying you should learn - "don't hunt what you can't kill". You can't kill Manny, you didn't kill Doyle when you had the chance, and now you're going to get fucked over big time. Sometimes the Al Capone solution (Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?) is the best one.

- I'm calling it now - Eli/Esther, before the season ends. The hatesex would be epic and gloriously snarky.

- Margaret, you idiot. Nucky is going to skin you alive when he finds out you took the money. WRONG ACT OF DEVOTION. You are *failing* at Lady Macbeth lessons.

- ANGELA. NOOOOOO, I DON'T WANT YOU TO DIE.

- AND HE'S TRYING TO BE A GOOD HUSBAND AND HONEST AND IT'S GOING TO BE TOO LATE. DID YOU LEARN NOTHING FROM PEARL AND CHICAGO, JIMMY, IT ALWAYS ENDS BAD.

- DARMODYS. WHY ARE YOU SO CUTE AND SWEET AND HORRIBLY, HORRIBLY DOOMED?

- See, Margaret? You can't buy a happy ending.

- AUGH ANGELA'S AWESOME GIRLFRIEND NO.

- NO NO ANGELA NOOOO.

- OHGOD, Richard's going to find her, isn't he? And then I think he cleans it up, which is why Gillian says no one ever has to find out and why there's the shot of them in the house.

- Also, MARGARET. YOU KNEW THIS WOULD HAPPEN. YOU CAN'T JUST FUCK HOT IRISHMEN AND THINK YOUR SUGAR DADDY'S GOING TO BE OKAY WITH IT.


In conclusion? NEEDS MOAR ROTHSTEIN AND HIS MERRY BAND OF IDIOTS.
