I LOVE when Nucky says “sure, you can sweep the sand” because he’s vocalizing and admitting the cyclical nature of this life of violence, power, and greed, and he’s trying to break the cycle from continuing through him any further.
SO ACCORDING TO LAST TESTAMENT, MARANZANO DIED IN HIS REAL ESTATE OFFICE AT 230 PARK AVENUE, OTHERWISE KNOWN AS THE EAGLE BUILDING.
CHECK. OUT. THE. DOORS.
I can’t even express to you how important it is that Charlie doesn’t lower the gun until he has Meyer’s agreement

I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve had “My Girl’s Pussy” stuck in my head literally all day long

"When you respond to threats and crises so frequently, something dies in you. Nothing is really life and death anymore. It also speaks to Lucky’s confidence in how well embedded his guys are, not just in the gangland, but in politics. Their tentacles are far-reaching and they’re confident in their intelligence — not just their own, but of everyone involved. They know how to play a serious game of chess."
My fellow citizens, we are at war.
UGH I LOVE HOW when they’re startled, they’re in black and white as though they’re about to become another headline. And it only goes to color once they see they’re safe.
the haircut gillian has at the sanitarium is very similar to the one she had as a child and as someone else pointed out she’s wearing a pink dress next episode
They lock you in a room. They don’t give you food, or water. They tell you you’re born in sin, that your whole life is a sin. And you can never wash it away. I d i d n ’ t d o a n y t h i n g !
