HOLLYWOOD—Tonight’s episode of “Boardwalk Empire” was titled “Broadway Limited.” However, nothing was limited on the show when it came to great acting, lots of action, excellent writing and the show is finally fleshing out their characters, and proving that other people are just as powerful and dangerous as Nucky.
Jimmy’s future was clouded by an unlikely witness to the woods massacre from last week, and the possible exposure of the murderous secret could be damaging and dangerous for more than one person. Did Jimmy believe becoming a contract killer would be without danger and turmoil? He however decided to take Nucky up on his advice to travel west, at least for the time being.
Margaret took a new job, but it lands her in the hands of someone she should feel very worried about. Chalky’s team paid a big price for his success. The taking over of Mickey Doyle’s bootleg business is not getting off to a good start, but the old adage “where there is a will, there is a way,” is evident in the determination of Chalky.
Tonight’s episode really began to pick up the pace. Also, characters we’d never seen interacting and conversing in the previous episodes are starting to do so, and showing their history as residents of the Atlantic City community. Scorsese’s ability to incorporate characters and their back story has always worked well for him, and this time around it is working great. “Broadway Limited” was written by Margaret Nagle and directed by Tim Van Patten.
“Empire” Facebook friend Sophia Castro said, “Great show tonight!” While Raymond O’Hara said, “I’m betting Mrs. Schroeder ends up with Nucky.” Jeremy J. Forsythe has good feelings about Jimmy’s future. “I think Jimmy is probably going to go back to his wife, hopefully,” said Forsythe.
