Only one more episode left of my favorite show HBO’s BOARDWALK EMPIRE. Can you believe season 3 is already coming to an end? On tonight’s show Gyp makes his move in Atlantic City, forcing Nucky and Eddie (Anthony Laciura) to seek refuge with Chalky. Did you see last week’s episode? We did and we recapped it here for you.
On last week’s show Nucky reached out to Gaston Means to keep Jess Smith quiet in Washington, and enlisted Owen to neutralize Gyp’s alliance with Joe Masseria in New York. Margaret considered an alternate future, at the hospital and at home; Van Alden’s side business backfired; Gyp fumed when a shipment came up short; Harrow coerced an apology for Julia; Chalky saw an opportunity in the ashes of a boardwalk institution.
On tonight’s show things really heats up as Gyp makes his big move on Atlantic City. Nucky seeks refuge with Chalky. With the Artemis Club overrun by Rosetti thugs, Gillian contemplates a business future that includes an unwelcome partner. Luciano (Vincent Piazza) makes a deal he’ll come to regret; Harrow loses his house privileges.
Nucky is looking for help tonight and he offers someone anything they want. I am hoping Richard and Chalky team up to help Nucky. Meanwhile, Gyp is at Nucky’s house and has the dog he gave Margaret’s children. He tells his men he wants Nucky in front of him, on his knees or on a slab. WOW! Looks like a crazy episode!
Tonight’s episode is going to be another action packed one, which you won’t want to miss. So be sure to tune in for our live coverage of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire Season 3 Episode 11 — tonight at 9PM EST! While you wait for our recap, hit the comments and let us know what you think of Boardwalk Empire season 3, so far!
