Loved the season premiere for Empire Boardwalk
@alan I went back and watched the scene again on HBOGO and it looks like the Frank in the scene we are talking about is actually Franky Yale played by Joseph Riccobene. The closing credits confirmed for me that Riccobene was in the episode. Further refreshing reminded me that we have seen him before as the man who shot Colosimo. Gyp mentioned his little operation in Canarsie so which would also make sense for Yale and not Costello who was more known for his expoits in Harlem while Yale or Uale was a Brooklyn boy.
Definitely wasn't surprised to see Nucky has a new mistress. I can't believe Margaret feels she has to stay with Nucky. She's pretty strong willed, as proven by her giving that land away. Is she only staying because of the money and power? Is she that afraid of Nucky? I don't think I would be of the "pale faced breadstick" ..........
VanAlden looks like a broken man going door to door selling irons. How can his face not be plastered everywhere after what he did?
Jimmy's mother is one disturbed bitch. I hope we don't see her abusing that child......but I think it could be inevitable. I hope Richard intervenes and some how I think he will. Richard is definitely seeking revenge for Jimmy and Angela.
@Philip Manley, I think you meant to say Richard, but you are right, I'm sure part of Richard's motivation for going after Manny was to avenge Angela, but also don't forget how much he cared for Jimmy too. Jimmy gave him a new lease on life, was his only friend.
@alan, nice pick up on Frank Costello during the meeting in the kitchen. That is most definitely the man seated next to Luciano that Gyp chastises. Given his history it would make sense that he would be in a meeting with his associates, Lucky, Lansky and Rothstein. I would expect to see Bugsy Siegel again soon.
Jimmy did not shoot Manny to avenge Jimmy. He shot him to avenge Angela.
i agree about richard shooting manny. seems like the only reasonable explanation as to nucky asking manny to do it personally and richard having somewhere to go. after all why would richard assume manny would be home rather than out on new years.
question, when gyp refers to someone at the basement meeting, was that supposed to be frank costello?
