Spoiler alert: If you’re one of those people who doesn’t like spoilers, stop reading now! We have some juicy spoilers for you about the season 4 episode 8 of HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire”
Official HBO synopsis of next week’s episode: “Nucky’s shipment from Florida will arrive with some unexpected cargo. Eli is going to be backed into a corner when Agent Knox uncovers new dirt on the Thompsons. After talking things over with Nucky, Willie will reconsider his recent life choices. Chalky is going to throw down the gauntlet to Valentin Narcisse, upholding his leadership on the Northside.” The episode was written by Cristine Chambers and Howard Korder, and directed by Tim Van Patten.
On next week’s show the title is from a Christian Hymn written by M. J. Cartwright sometime around 1889. The song is about a maiden voyage – I wonder if this is referring to Nucky’s first shipment from Florida.
Nucky gets his first shipment of alcohol from Tampa and it includes something else heroin. Charlie Luciano made a side deal with Vincenzo Petrucelli to carry drugs along with alcohol. You know Nucky is not going to be pleased by that.
