This week's 'Boardwalk Empire' continues the theme of relationships and business and where the two meet, though it doesn't quite match the intensity of last week's proceedings or the thoughtfulness of the episode from two weeks back. It's a lot of table-setting in "Ging Gang Goolie," but damn fine silverware that is indeed.
Well, this had to happen eventually. For five episodes of 'Boardwalk Empire's third season now, we've watched as Gillian Darmody (Gretchen Mol) seemed ever more subtly unhinged after the
death disappearance of her son Jimmy, but it looks like the sh*t's about to hit the mattress. One of the latest clips from Sunday's "Ging Gang Goolie" features the erstwhile madame chatting up a gentleman that looks suspiciously like Jimmy Darmody, and well...eww. See for yourself.
HBOThis week's episode of 'Boardwalk Empire' is all about business and pleasure and where the two often -- and sometimes unfortunately -- meet. "You'd Be Surprised" gives some forward momentum on the government side of things, but it's where business gets down to the personal level that's more compelling.
Now that the heat is officially on, and Gyp Rosetti has launched an attack on Nucky Thompson's alcohol enterprise, "You'd Be Surprised" how quickly things are going to spiral out of control for 'Boardwalk Empire's Atlantic City. This Sunday will see the fifth all-new episode of the season, as Nucky petitions Arnold Rothstein (Michael Stuhlbarg) to get involved with the ongoing feud, while simultaneously taking care of some business for his new-found lady love Billie Kent (Meg Steedle). But who's doing the dirty work, according to these new clips from "You'd Be Surprised?"
Now that a fourth season is assured, we needn't worry that too much harm is going to come to 'Boardwalk Empire's Nucky Thompson, even as unstable gangsters like Gyp Rosetti (Bobby Canavale) take every excuse to start a conflict. Certainly after his percieved slight in "Bone For Tuna" the heat is quite literally on in their growing conflict. So, what do the first official clips from follow-up episode "Blue Bell Boy" reveal? Who's next in danger of facing Nucky's wrath?
For those of you wondering of HBO's period gangster drama 'Boardwalk Empire' could continue on successfully without one of its leading stars, your inquiries have been answered. The pay-cabler network has officially renewed the Steve Buscemi mob saga four a fourth season, currently airing its third on Sunday nights. But when will we see the new episodes, and is the order a different size than usual, like the recent 'True Blood' and 'Treme' orders?
We remember the very first time we saw 'Boardwalk Empire,' and thought to ourselves "golly, this is pretty swell, but gosh darn it if all this sex, crime and murder wouldn't be a bit better with chicken puppets." Thankfully, we no longer need fear copyright infringement or crippling lack of funding, now that 'Sesame Street' has made its own parody of the HBO gangster drama! Nope, you're not dreaming!
If the season premiere episode of 'Boardwalk Empire' set the table, and the second episode straightened the place settings, then the third episode, "Bone For Tuna," starts serving up the meat and potatoes real proper. This week's episode is all about obsession and what it drives our characters to do.
Boy, that Gyp Rosetti just can't keep a lid on it, can he? Though last week's somewhat slower 'Boardwalk Empire' outing "Spaghetti & Coffee" saw Bobby Cannavale's gangster character largely keeping his overactive temper in check, this Sunday's upcoming episode "Bone For Tuna" will likely prove even more explosive as Nucky is forced to negotiate with Gyp to continue his bootlegging business. But as the newest clips from the episode have us asking, who's really in control here?
