Attempting to make peace in Atlantic City, Jimmy delivers the KKK members responsible for the death of Chalky's men, effectively ending the worker's strike. In addition, Jimmy tells Nucky he wants to make things right between them, so he gets rid of the new treasurer, Mr. Neery, after forcing him to write a fake suicide note that recants his testimony.

Ester Randolph's case against Nucky continues to fall apart when Nucky convinces Margaret to marry him. Due a lack of evidence and witness testimonies, Nucky's granted a mistrial. Then, Congress approves the new highway, which will make Nucky a very rich man. He tells Margaret he's going to turn over a new leaf, but is still troubled about how to deal with Jimmy.

In the end, Nucky lures Jimmy out to confront Horvitz, but it's a setup. Nucky shoots Jimmy repeatedly in the head and then tells Margaret Jimmy reenlisted in the Army. Margaret, suspicious of her new husband, signs over Nucky's valuable land deeds to the church.

What if these were just lucid dreams for nuck and darmody could come back


oh did I forget to say that was absolutely awesome, the final? yeah it was, it is the best season final ever from any show yet man!


boardwalk empire? first i fell in love with godfather, then the wire and sopranos, with this if its up there probably the top with the unbeleivable! the best steve the best! season 3 gives my dreams something to look forward to with scripts like that terence!


A few critical detours really seemed incongruous with the Nucky those closest to him know so well. For one, Jimmy Darmody always carried his gun to a gun fight! Did Jimmy have some kind of mental telepathy as to what was about to happen after Nucky called to say he had Manny and to meet him at the War Veterans Monument? And, at the very end, while Nucky is celebrating the New Jersey land deal with the Congressmen at the same moment Mrs. Margaret Thompson is signing the deed to the Catholic Church! Season 2 of Boardwalk Empire certainly did end with a bang!!


very surprising ending...
this was the opposite of sons of anarchy


I was totally taken by surprise by the outcome of this Boardwalk Empire season finale episode! It just ended two minutes ago and I have not fully absorbed everything that happened! SHOCKER!!
