Boardwalk Empire Review: I Am Who I Am

Hey @Terrie great to hear from you as always. Interesting thought that Daughter hooking up with Chalky could be part of Narcisse's master plan. I sort of think her dependence on his drugs and the grip he has on her contractually is what is going to force Chalky to do something about his nemesis who he referred to as, just a "not so nice word" with a dictionary. Eli prob will mention something to Nucky about Eddie having two sons, but more importantly I think he will look into the handkerchief discrepancy. I also am not convinced that his suicide said what Knox translated it as. Knox will surely investigate Ralph Capone now off Eddie's tip, which might prove to be Van Alden's undoing if someone recognizes him. Or perhaps Knox enlists Van Alden's help making him a triple agent working for O'Banion, the Capones and the gov't.

Boardwalk Empire Review: Abba-Zaba

@Terrie I hear ya. I too am surprised at the lack of comments. I had thought after Breaking Bad wrapped up, it would pick up. Their loss I guess.

@Terrie I believe she is in Brooklyn. We had our first mention of Teddy last week and Sally sent Nucky the baby gator to give to him for his birthday, so I'm thinking this week we will.

@Richard you are right. I forgot about Arya killing the stable boy, but you have to admit this was different. She was defending herself against the stable boy and it was more of an accident. Her stabbing the soldier in the finale was more cold blooded. And I think you'd agree ordering people killed is different than looking them in the eye as you do it. But again, you are right and she even hinted at it when she answered Sandor that yes it was the first "man" she ever killed. Her latest murder marked a change though didn't it? We saw the first glimpse of what Melisandre saw when she looked into Arya's eyes. A killer through and through.

@nik I write these reviews. My name and picture are on them as opposed to you who essentially posts as anon. It seems like I missed "everything of importance" on the show? Really?
I do agree with your comment about Robb. He certainly put his own interests ahead of his family's and his people. There can be honor in war though. "Messy, unfair and bloody" does not make it dishonorable. There is honor in fighting for what you believe in. The difference with the Red Wedding was that the Stark's were brought there under false pretense. They were deceived and betrayed. That was not honorable. Soldiers marching into battle know what is on the line. Tywin is shrewd but I wouldn't go so far as to say he took the "moral high ground."

Thx @none, you're right on the warg typo, I went back and fixed. And it was "Jon" not Robb I meant to type with the wildings you're right. I posted the review at 2:42 AM so even after a couple careful read-throughs and spell checks a couple things were bound to escape my editing. Any thoughts on the episode?
@annihilator I will let it be known there is interest in us following Halo.
@boxyp I like your point about Edmure being a valuable hostage. I wonder if roslin was in on the plot. Her smile vanished when it came time for the bedding ceremony. Either that was just her dreading being carried off to bed or she knew what was coming.

@Emy, you're right we have not learned the name of Theon's torturer, my bad. I was looking at a list of actors on IMDB and he was there and his name was listed. So a bit premature on my part. Sorry. @jameschan, I hear what you are saying. I just assumed they were going to take the beans along with the frank based on how gnarly that knife looked.

@SK TY for the heads up on "brooch" I have fixed it.

@mia and @sean thx for the feedback. Very interesting and all makes a lot of sense. I too liked the Thoros/Melisandre scene. Her jaw just about hit the ground when she learned how many times Thoros had brought Beric back.

and @Jako'theshadows don't you dare tell me...Ha. TY for confirming my hunch, but I will happily wait to see it unfold on screen in time. Having read the books like you said, how is the show doing in terms of keeping your interest and entertaining you?
