The season finale better pretty action packed. There are a lot of issues that need to be resolved.

There's a possibility that Richard could still be alive. They didn't show him die.

Well that sucked. HOW COULD THEY DO THAT TO RICHARD OMG WRITERS I HATE YOU!!!



Honestly though it was a very good episode. I'd been not losing interest really, but just feeling a bit meh about this season. Everything felt very disconnected and spread thinly. But this episode brought some things full circle and that was good. Even though I'm PISSED OFF about Richard.

And he's gone. Jack Huston said this about his character, and as much as I hated to see Richard go down so sadly, he's right.

Not sure if anyone else sees it this way, but... I think they lost a lot when they killed off Jimmy. This show was so centered around him, there was his point of view, and Nucky's point of view. When Jimmy was gone, it lost some focus and balance because he was the connection for many of the characters. I think they did very well for the entire season following his death, because they were still dealing with the aftermath of it, and his presence was still felt. But this season sort of felt like the farther we moved from Jimmy's presence, the weaker and less connected every thing and everybody was. This episode was good because we were connected with Jimmy again, and got some closure there.

Also, everything Eli is always good.

Well, as much as everyone loved Richard (me included), he was a killer and doomed to a tragic fate. Richard did what he was essentially supposed to do which was find a good home for Tommy. I wasn't a big fan of Jimmy's. He fucked over Nucky and got what he deserved. The show has always been centered around Nucky. Next season, Eli's son, Will, will have an even larger role than this season.

Yes the show is centered around Nucky of course, guess I worded that wrong. I meant that Jimmy was the other main focal point, and it centered around their relationship. When he was gone it sort of lost that balance. At least for me. And when just about every one of your characters are criminals you can easily say they got what they deserved, but it really isn't so black and white as that! There is a lot of depth to them with many reasons why we might pull for any of them to make it.

And I might clarify that what originally made me so upset for Richard was not that he died, but the whole reason he did. The screw up killing Chalky's daughter. That's what I meant by damn you writers, LOL. Way to sink the knife in and twist it a little for a character who is already pretty tragic! What a bunch of meanies!

Just once it would be nice for someone to get a happy ending.

All these shows on TV these days are so bleak.

Wow, there's a FB page where lots of folks are pissed off that Richard died. Some, of course, vowing to never watch BE ever again. Yawn.

Are you sure it's all meant absolutely literally? Because that's not what I meant at all when I say something like DAMMIT I'M NEVER WATCHING THIS SHOW AGAIN. It's just an expression of emotion over losing a great character in a tragic way. Maybe some people are serious though.

I'll be just as grumpy if they off Mickey though. He's not as deep a character obviously but I love every second he's on the screen.

I couldn't care less if they stop watching the show or not nor do I know if they're serious. I just find their rants amusing. I knew you were more or less kidding around. BE will probably save Mickey's murder for next season. How dare he use Eddie's cane?

Also, the look Eli gave Van Alden when he pulled up in the car was priceless.

Yes, hopefully we see more of Van Alden next season. Michael Shannon is an awesome actor.
