BOARDWALK EMPIRE Recap: “Resignation”


After a scattered and disappointing season opener, Boardwalk Empire returned this week with some great setup moving forward, and some fantastic character moments in an episode that felt both insular and hopeful.  I mentioned last week that the show’s oppressively dark atmosphere and over-reliance on violence would be its undoing, unless it showed signs of change and growth and a moral center.  Unsurprisingly, it was Richard Harrow who bestowed us with much of that, but even Nucky had some interesting interactions in “Resignation.”  Hit the jump for more.
