I just kinda figured the milk of magnesia stunt would end poorly because nearly every scheme or misunderstanding (however slight) seems to end with a horrible murder on this show.

and i love this show too, but whenever a previously non-murdering character becomes a murderer (which is usually) i get to feeling like, c'mon man let's let this guy skate without any murders.

I don't know if this was mentioned already but there were some continuity errors due to poor editing in the most recent episode.

The scene that bothered me the most was when Eli was talking to his son and the book on the desk alternated between being open and closed. At the end of the scene, Eli's son closes the book. Am i to believe that he's opening and closing this book off camera?

It seems petty or trivial, but it's distracting.

i understand his actions for sure but sometimes it feels like the stammering and mannerisms he has now are of an entirely different character. I enjoy the new dynamic with capone very much but it does seem a bit odd it retrospect...who cares i love this show

I think when Van Alden had that stern confidence he also had both a position of authority and his moral certitude to back it up. Not so much these days.

Yep, back then he was absolutely sure of who he was and where he was in the world, and that he had been charged with a holy duty by God to combat evil on this sinful earth.

Now he's wanted for murder and infinity other charges and he's living with a stolen baby under a false name and he's managed to rack up several more potential murder charges while he's at it.

It doesn't really surprise me that George Mueller is a very different space alien than Nelson Van Alden was.

did that ending surprise anyone?

I kinda thought Eddie would do this as soon as the feds took him in. guess it woulda been to cliche for him to hang himself, which was how I thought he'd do it.

Poor Eddie. It's made even worse knowing Gillian is somehow still alive too :(

Why would that make poor Eddie's fate worse?

Also: anybody have any good speculation on who the hell Roy Phillips is/what his agenda could be and why he's interested in Gillian? At first I thought he really was some innocent country Piggly Wiggly exec, but obviously he isn't if he's recognizing her heroin paraphernalia in 1924.

I realized it was inevitable when he broke. Up until then I was nurturing a bit of hope that he'd somehow manage to out-stoic them because he's awesome and I didn't want to see him go. But when he gave in, welp, nothing was going to stop him doing what he did.

But it didn't have to be surprising to be brutal. Nucky's dismissive reception of his return, Eddie's final moments -- yeah, you could almost call it beat for beat, but that didn't make it less powerful.

When Nucky calls him over and it briefly seems like he might say something substantial or appreciative, and then just shows him the mismatched socks, goddamn. Heartbreaking. And then one of Eddie's very last acts is rearranging the sock drawer.

Pretty low-key but ultimately crushing episode. Capone's face when he turns around from his brother's body in the morgue was real devastating too.

On a lighter note, someone should make a gif of the few seconds right after Van Alden snorts the cocaine.

Just me being a reactionary asshole. Her story is just so uninteresting at this point, and I'm really sad that Eddie's gone. No other link that that.

yea it probably would have resonated more with me if I didn't go to sleep as soon as I finished watching this at 2am

Oh, gotcha.

I'm actually more interested in Gillian now than I was for basically the entirety of S3 when her role was just "say mean things to Richard Harrow."

Paying for heroin in change (and not even enough change!), trying to prostitute herself to the judge and Dunn Purnsley only to get brutally shot down both times, trying to pick up Tommy from school while high and seeing the fear on the kid's face... I used to be a bigtime Gillian hater and now I only have pity for her trying so hard to wrap this tattered shawl of gentility around herself like that's gonna hide what she's become or pad her crash into rock bottom.

Given that I am not the world's most sympathetic audience w/r/t pathetic junkies, I consider this a feat.

Mostly though I'm interested in who and what the hell Roy Phillips is going to turn out to be, and also I'm devoutly hoping that Gillian doesn't do something stupid to try and get Tommy back that results in Julia becoming a woman-in-fridge for Richard. If she instigates Julia and Richard getting back together that would be okay though.
