|"Just like Mama's, eh?" --Gyp Rosetti|
Another big shot who was personally escorted by Nucky Thompson to rock bottom has returned. Sallow and as thin as a rail, Eli is released from his two-year staycation in the slammer to become low man on the bootlegging totem pole. If prison didn’t show Eli how much Nucky was going to make him pay, maybe making the most annoying character on the show, Mickey Doyle, his boss will do the trick. Although, it’s not looking like Eli will stay at the bottom for long. He’s already turning into Owen’s right-hand man. This alliance makes you wonder if Owen will stay as loyal to Nucky this season.
Plus, Billie Kent’s extra ‘interests’ are becoming an issue for Nucky. At first I felt compassion for Mr. Thompson, but now I see him for the hypocritical misogynist that he is. He collects women to fulfill his needs, and expects complete devotion.
Is Season 3 it for Nucky? So many characters are set to betray him, but how is that different from any other season?
One question, what happened with, Regina, the dog Gyp gave to Margaret? I’m still waiting for the cops to put two and two together and pin the murder on Nuck.
