Boardwalk Empire > Boardwalk Empire Boss Explains Season Finale Death, Teases Season 3 Time Jump > Comments Page 2
Relax folks...my predictions for season 3:
1)Jimmy WILL be back...as his son!
2)Jimmy's mother will be murdered by Owen Slater at Nucky's request. Heck,
even Jimmy might do it. either way, she gets it.
3)Nucky gets the land back and throws Margaret out on her boring ass.
4)95% of the posters here who say they wont be watching season 3 will watch.
Remember...you heard it here!
I was gutted that Jimmy was killed off, well more shocked really.
I thought that Jimmy's friend would follow him and shoot Eley who was stood behind Jimmy after Nucky had turned on Jimmy's wife's killer (forgot his name sorry mental blank).
Then Jimmy could partner Nucky with the upper hand, but hey ho not to be.
I appreciate the "youv'e killed Jimmy" outrage but the writers must know where it is going and I'm sure Nucky will get what's coming to him in the end.
Can't wait for it to return on Sky Atlantic, that with Blue Bloods,Game of Thrones, Hawiai 5 o and Spartacus has made very good viewing!
Jimmy's character was easily 50% of the appeal of the show. However, in saying that, I think Micheal Pitt is a highly "underrated" actor and so perhaps this will give him the opportunity to get more deserving roles in major Hollywood films.
Except for a couple of characters this show is real. Can everyone stop saying that it's not. Luciano was real, Capone torrio masseria arnold rothstein even nucky except his real name was Johnson not Thompson. So I agree with one of the comments know your history this stuff really happened, and these are the character that we want to know about not jimmy or margaret. I can't wait until they introduce Elliot ness he was a big part of al Capone downfall
I started watching this show because of the SAG awards and was curious about all the attention is was getting. Now that I have caught up and just finished watching the Season finale I;m not sure I want to continue watching it. I loved Jimmy's character and he was a major part of the show and it's struggle for one persons acceptance in a family. I am so sorry I even watched it now!!
Jimmy's mother should have been killed off!!! Not Jimmy!!! Great idea Nucky finds out he killed his son Jimmy only way you can keep the memory of Jimmy WHAT WERE YOU THINKING KILLING HIM!!!!
Jimmy was alright as a character but nothing amazing, killing him off will hardly ruin the show. Richard Harrow and Chalky White are far better characters with more depth despite only getting a fraction of the air time. I know she won't, but Margaret really needs to go she got very dull as season 2 went on.
I'm still in disbelief. I was hoping that I would have read something somewhere that would hint to Jimmy may not really be dead. Honestly, the entire series flatlines without him..especially in the first two seasons!! Honestly, that's more stupid than exciting. If there aren't any clues in the first 2 episodes that elude to Jimmy's not really dead...I'm done. Boardwalk Empire's viewership dropped dramatically because of the long haitus from Season 1 to Season 2..now you write off Jimmy? Ya know what happens to a show that writes out everyone's favorite character right? It gets CANCELLED!!!
Are all you people stupid? Jimmy was the best im not watching blah blah, this show was never about Jimmy. This show is about the 1920s and 30s era of prohibition and the major players. Read up on some history, Lucky Luciano basically created the mafia in America and i hope everyone knows about Capone. Even Lansky and his young worker Bugsy I am far more excited to see all this develop because it REALLY happened. The show is staying historically acurate which makes it fascinating and why characters like Jimmy can be killed off. Sopranos-Pussy, Ralphie, Chris, Adriana The Wire-Sringer, Omar, Bodie. Perfect shows like this understand the need for change and development, this show is NOT going to lose viewers. It will go from strength to strength and inevitably be regarded as good as if not better than the wire and sopranos.
Really people get a clue!!
I'm glad Margaret did what she did...especially while Nucky was out celebrating the land. Nucky...and Steve Buscemi...is an ugly character, when he professed his 'love' for his wife and family I never heard anything more phony. Good on Margaret, she'll have the last laugh. And Jimmy should not have been killed, he was the only believable character in the whole story.
Margaret, Margaret what have you done, singing over the land to the Parish! Nucky will just have to "remove" your children from the house until you see sense and go get it back. Don't worry, the kids will be well looked after. Then, he should just toss you back out on your ass!
Ok first things first. It is not real it's a tv show. Jimmy made the boardwalk empire show what it is. All the other characters are nothing. The show was headed in such a great direction. Until all the stupid writers started saying. Hey guys its not real enough its not real. Jimmy has to die guys its not real. You Dee dee dee' s its a tv show its never going to be real or seem real And you just knocked off the most "realistic " best performance actor of this show. The true fans that watched the show from day one. Are going to watch something else. Until you guys realize what a mistake you made. Watch your viewer ratings drop. You Dee dee dee.
I kinda knew that Jimmy would die before the series ended. But damn! I never saw this coming. Plus I thought Jimmy would kill him mom before he died. Jimmy was too big of a character to end so quickly, and Margaret is starting to piss me off.
This is reality, and if it comes down to it, Jimmy was in the wrong all the time. Nucky was more like a father to him than the Commodore ever was, the Commodore just used Jimmy to gain power. Nucky was harsh on Jimmy, but he was grooming Jimmy to take his place, Jimmy just could never see that and was blinded of the aspect of the Commodore being his father. Jimmy was a great character but was on a road of self-destruction, if it wasn't Nucky, it would have been someone else. Also, the implementation of Owen Slater along with future introduction of Bugsy Siegel should make for a fantastic season 3!
I liked the ending,never liked Jimmy, no sympathy for his character, his actions with his mother and father made it obvious that he had no where else to go as a character.
Nucky was horrible with business but did not scare his family. Jimmy could be one of the gang but his family had no love, so when everyone thought he was doing great, he wasn't. The writers constantly showed the difference in their home lives. I think Nucky is one of the most interesting characters myself, not some boring murdering deviant who abadonded his family twice then forced his way back in resulting in his wifes death and who didnt have the decency to have joy in any violence he was just limpy dan the pathetic man (or boy) Sort of a Nero figure, desperate for power, reliant on his mother (for many things), totally gripped by his own issues even tho surrounded by those much worse off (tin man the lonely figure)no regard for his wife, and in the end murdered for his failings.
Glad to see Jimmy move on. My favorite character was the Commodore. Dabney Coleman was precious in that part. Jimmy's relationship with his mom was over the top creepy. You want a dream sequence? Bring back the two lesbo's.
I know I'm a little late to the convo. But I really hope that the HBO writers are paying attention. I understand that they wanted something shocking,a strong ending. The thing is, there is an audience to think about. Jimmy was not only everyone's favorite character, he made the show! Sorry Nucky, but he did! Ohh, and while I'm commenting, honestly, I can't stand Margaret anymore. I can't believe she is the same one I rooted for in Season 1. What a bitch! A boring bitch at that! Had Jimmy not been killed off I think that people would be bitching about Margaret. The only reason Im looking forward to Season 3 is because I'm hoping they find a way to bring Jimmy back.
gutted, i loved jimmy so much
Jimmy & Nucky were my two favorite characters. Jimmy dying ruined the whole show for me. He pretty much made the show and the fact that Nucky killed him ruined his character for me too.. PLEASE figure out a way to reverse this ending.. Make it a dream or something because I don't really want to watch it anymore after this.. Obviously a lot of people agree with me too.
WO! Jimmy is dead. Didnt see that coming. Was never the jimmy show so the fact he has been killed off they can concentrate on more interesting characters such as Al Capone and Luciano. Bring on season 3.
Right, first things first; what a series! Absolutely love it.
The death of Jimmy was a shock I thought his friend was going to save him or a double cross by one of them, Nucky shooting jimmy I didn't se coming; nobody did!
The land being signed over, Al Capone is going to come up and take over (love Stephen Graham), and hopefully Lucky and Arnold will get what's coming to them.
Can't wait for the next series, i love the thought that it's a "Jimmy dream" again, but alas it wasn't so here's to the long wait; when will it be back on Sky Atlantic????
I am so disappointed that Jimmy was shot, why oh why oh why did it have to go this way. He was ONLY the BEST character on the series, please, please please I bed Martin Scorcese to open series 3 with it all being just another dream that Jimmy was having, come on - he really was the best character - it just can't be like this. Bet you will loose a lot of viewers for next series unless you undo this ending. i definitely won't be interested in watching if he is no longer a character.
Most people who have commented here on this forum,seemed to have lost all perspective of what makes a good tv show,who wants predictability,jimmy's charachter was made up,its a story about a world where good guys do come second,in 2 or 3 episodes they will get it back on track,great series great acting,I think it will only get better,and I know 99% of viewers will be back for season 3
Good idea killing off the most interesting character on the show. Creators must be hanging around with the winners who wrote lost.
i have litteraly just watched the finale of season 2 and my god i am in absolute shock!! BUT....the show wasnt based and never was meant to be based on the life of jimmy darmody. it was always set out to evolve around nucky thompson. as fans of the sopranos we have become acustom to theese sort of shocks yet the show ALWAYS moves on! look at pussy, look at ralph who played a huge part in season 3 and 4 and adriana...who saw that coming?!? if im honest i fought it was a a bad mistake on the writers part to play out so much of jimmys life in season 2 and with the death of jimmys wife we, well i, was looking forward to the destructive aftermath that built up over ep.11 and ep.12 that never happened. but again its not a show about jimmy, its supposed to be real life and theese things happen!we've still got the overthrow of arnold rothstein and jonny torrio to come AND maybe the st. valentines massacre. i have full faith in terrance winter and the writing team and look forward to the destru
