'Boardwalk Empire' season finale: Same boardwalk, different Nucky

The big question leading into tonight's "Boardwalk Empire" season finale was how Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) would manage to recover from the streak of bad luck and betrayal which has steadily encroached upon him all season. But after a finale filled with strategic maneuvers and an enormous body count, the lingering issue remaining for Season 4 is whether or not Nucky will stick to the "full gangster" mantra. Season 3 was more consistent than the last -- the writing was stronger, and it played out with fewer contemplative and slow episodes. And unlike last year, the finale wasn't packed with jaw-dropping revelations or unexpected deaths. Instead, "Margate Sands" played out as a tribute to Nucky Thompson's shrewd negotiating skills, and his ability to take back his city after losing nearly everything. *WARNING: Spoilers ahead* A Nucky-less Atlantic City is chaotic, and gang violence has the press and the public talking. Even as Thompson plots his... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/12/boardwalk-empire-season-finale-same-boardwalk-different-nucky.html

'Boardwalk Empire': 5 big questions for the season finale

Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) started out Season 3 of "Boardwalk Empire" in full gangster mode, but recent episodes have featured a weakened, threatened Thompson in hiding. Atlantic City's head honcho has almost completely run out of company, true to Jimmy Darmody's dying prophecy. Almost. Thompson is ending Season 3 staunchly determined to win back his town. With the help of Al Capone, Chalky White, and his brother Eli, Nucky is set to do battle with Gyp Rosetti -- and Sunday's episode is guaranteed to be a bloodbath. But there are quite a few remaining loose ends left to tie, and some big questions for the season finale: 1. Where is Margaret? Nucky knows about her affair with Owen (Charlie Cox), but audiences didn't see him confront Margaret (Kelly Macdonald) about it (nor did we see her subsequent departure with the children). Where is she? How will she handle her pregnancy now that Owen is dead?... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/11/boardwalk-empire-5-big-questions-for-the-season-finale.html

Boardwalk Empire 3.08 Preview: You Exist in This Town Because I Allow You To

Though he once controlled the boardwalk with a firm grip and few challengers, Nucky Thompson is getting it from all sides this season on Boardwalk Empire . His relationship with Eli might be getting better, thanks to the Easter visit last week and the latter's subsequent promotion, but Harry Daugherty still has Nucky in his crosshairs, Gyp is wounded but recovering, Billie is proving to be more of a liability, Margaret has begun an affair with Owen, and it's yet to be determined if Esther Randolph can be trusted, or if she'll even go along with Nucky's plan to hit back at Daugherty. Could things potentially get worse for the (former?) King of Atlantic City ? Read More... http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/tvovermind/tvnews/~3/qfTXVHyatIs/

Boardwalk Empire 3.07 Sneak Peeks: Gyp Regroups at His Mother's House

When we last saw Gyp Rosetti on Boardwalk Empire , he was naked, covered in the blood of the redheaded waitress that Benny shot, and wearing a dog collar tightened around his neck. Rothstein and Nucky had put aside their obvious differences long enough to attempt to take out Rosetti, who had went from a potentially valuable business partner to a liability due to his temper and penchant for violence. After losing several men, in addition to the alliances he had, Gyp is reeling and needs to either get out of Atlantic City while he's still alive or find another ally to help him strike back against the men that betrayed him.
