Boardwalk Empire Review: Lock, Stock and Whiskey Barrel

On tonight's Boardwalk Empire, Gillian said dreams are where we should live, as she checked out further from reality and found a man to fill the void left by Jimmy's death.

Maybe it was the gypsy man, or possibly the Pooka, but regardless of who was to blame, my dreams of a great episode went up in flames as quickly as Nucky's greenhouse. 

"Ging Gang Goolie" had its moments, but my hopes of seeing the show move forward on certain fronts was hamstrung by the resurrection of storylines I had taken for dead and buried. Gillian looked like she was finally accepting Jimmy's death until she went out and got herself a new man whose side-shaved haircut was anything but subtle. She wants to call her handsome hoosier James? Really? I thought this creepy storyline died with Jimmy, but apparently we were not so lucky, as Gillian got a second chance to play the creepy mother hand.
