Tonight on HBO is an all new episode of BOARDWALK EMPIRE called “Sunday Best.” On tonight’s show on Easter Sunday, Eli looks to get back in Nucky’s good graces at a Thompson family reunion. Gyp is also back tonight and he is back with a vengeance. He tries to have a conversation with Nucky about the New York shipments. Did you see last week’s episode? We did and we recapped it here for you.
On last week’s show after being detained in Washington by Daugherty’s henchmen, Nucky approached his onetime nemesis, Esther Randolph, and later entertained an intriguing proposition from Gaston Means. In Atlantic City, Margaret coped with Teddy’s demons while Owen investigated a suspicious fire, and Gillian feuded with Lucky and found a surrogate for Jimmy. Richard connected with a pugilistic vet named Paul Sagorsky and his daughter, Julia.
On tonight’s show while Richard and Tommy spend the day as guests of the Sagorskys, Gillian stays at home and makes a sacrifice to improve her future. In New York, after dinner and prayers, Gyp heads downtown in search of a blessing – from Joe Masseria. Gyp is back and he is back with a vengeance, he has Lucky Luciano, Nucky Thompson and Arnold Rothstein in the cross hairs of his sight and he wants them dead! As a matter of fact he says he is going to kill them all. Gyp is not going to easily forgive the failed hit on his life.
