Each year 'Boardwalk Empire' fans prepare for the inevitable onslaught as characters face the barrel of a gun, last year taking fan-favorite star Charlie Cox, but is former 'The Wire' star Michael K. Williams about to die his second HBO death? The latest trailer for 'Boardwalk Empire' season 4 has hit, and things don't look too good for Chalky White this time around.

"One looks down in secret and sees many things," new series regular Dr. Valentin Narcisse ('The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' star Jeffrey Wright) remarks to Nucky Thompson of Chalky's new status as a boardwalk club owner. "I saw a servant pretending to be a king." We've seen Nucky maintain an uneasy relationship with Chalky before, but it looks like racial tension will boil over when the new 'Boardwalk Empire' season begins, judging by ominous shots of Chalky snarling, "let's end it."

The new season has added Patricia Arquette as Tampa speakeasy owner Sally Wheet, ‘The Killing‘ star Eric Ladin as a young J. Edgar Hoover, ‘True Blood‘ star Brian Geraghty as Federal Agent Warren Knox, Ron Livingston as Roy Phillips, a business and romantic prospect of Gillian’s, and HBO vet Domenick Lombardozzi as Chicago mobster Ralph Capone, elder brother to Al Capone (Stephen Graham).
