Couple of things

1. I would shit myself if I went over to a girls house and Omar was the daddy.

2. Jimmy and his mum continues to creep me out.

3. Harrow is da man. We need a spin off with him travelling America righting wrongs.

I'd just like to say that Rothstein is my favorite character. He's so delightfully evil.

I only just realised that Richard Harrow is played by Jack Huston of the infamous Huston family. I'm shocked as the only other thing I've seen him in was Outlander and he looked like this!

This series is so so much better than season one.

The scene with Manny taking out the would be killer was just amazing. Jimmy has screwed up. Big time.

I honestly don't see how that character gets out alive by seasons end.

It's even more perfect for him than he could have imagined, really. When you consider what the first thought will be upon police finding the scene...

Manny did not screw around did he? But then I knew his vengenece was going to be great.

I really like the character of Manny, but Richard Harrow is going to wipe him, and his crew out for this. Jimmy won't do shit - the Commadore has him pegged.

I love Manny, but he's no Rothstein...

Time for Harrow to bring the pain... although surely his one eye affects his sniping ability now. Depth perception and all that.

Whose to say Harrow will know it was Manny that did it? Jimmy's wife is found dead, with another woman.

It wouldn't be hard to put two and two together and get five.

Well you said the police. I could see Harrow going off well before they even find the bodies.

EPISODE 11 SPOILERS AHEAD

Good episode for the most part although I did think a bit too much time was spent on the flashbacks and not enough time was spent moving the "present day" plot forward. I mean it's the last episode next week. I know a few things are going to carry forward into season 3 but I would have liked a resolution to Nucky's court case this season.

Margaret Schroeder is really starting to do my head in. I don't really know why and I'm not sure when but at some point I really started hating her and now she annoys me tremendously whenever she's on screen. I think it might be the squeaky voice.

Jimmy is so fucked. There can be no redemption for the motherfucker and he's all but been abandoned by his associates. He surely has to die soon. Doesn't he?

I don't think we need spoiler tags in this thread.

Jimmy is doomed. I cannot see how he gets himself out of this in one piece.

Loved the final moments - it was basically Chinatown - which has even more subtext consider John Hustons grandson plays Harrow.

So who do you reckon will pull the trigger should Jimmy be written out?

I think Manny most probably although it would be kinda poetic if it was Richard. Whoever does it I hope they take Gillian as well, she is one fucked up lady and is wholly responsible for Jimmy being such a fuck up.

I actully think Richard and Jimmy will work together and get Manny. But then Richard will kill Jimmy, as his punishment for what happened.

Gillian is a messed up, but you have to see things from her world - raped and abused as a very young girl. Having to survive with a son at such a young age, in a world where such a thing was looked down upon. She is messed up, but it comes from a tragic place.

I think it has to be Harrow that pulls the trigger. Either him or Nucky and it's not really Nucky's style. Wouldn't be surprised if it was Lucky Luciano or Capone though.

Yeah GIllian is a wreck but she's also a destructive influence on her son. Fatally so by the look of it. He was doing well for himself before she decided to fuck him because she was jealous of his girlfriend (it was deffo a concious decision IMO, she wasn't anywhere near as drunk as she made out). Gotta love the whole Oedipus vibe going on though, it's pretty well written (even though you could see it coming a mile off).

I hope there's no reconcilliation between Nucky and Jimmy. That would be a bit of a cop out but thankfully not one I can see them going for. If Nucky wouldn't forgive his brother there's no way he'd forgive Jimmy regardless of whatever responsibility he feels towards him. Having said that though Nucky was pretty friendly towards Angela so her death might soften his resolve (although we've seen no sign of it yet).

I wouldn't be so harsh on Gillian either. OK she's twisted and messed up but, like every other character in the show, she lives in a corrupt society that feeds on the weak and she's very much a product (and early victim) of that world. This is alluded to in the scene with Jimmy and his classmates discussing the meaning of the book.  And unlike the others, she genuinely has to suffer for everything she's got, and I don't think she's in any denial about who she is or what she's done. Margaret prefers to pretend she isn't culpable, Nucky likes to pretend he's some noble, generous entrepreneur (though I do suspect he has more self-awareness than he lets on), Jimmy and his father feel they're entitled to power and money, the agent thinks he's doing God's work.

Gillian knows how it really works and she's very fortright in not having any pretence and just taking it. She's really just a reflection of those values embedded in society and, somewhat admirably, she refuses to be a victim ever again and stand up for herself.

Maybe not going about it in the best way, of course

She fucked her son and is responsible for him setting down the path which will inevitably lead to his destruction. Add this to the coldness she displayed towards Angela's memory and there's a woman who'll get not a jot of sympathy from me. In a programme full of murderers, perverts and gansters she's the least sympathetic person on the show for me. She is as hot as hell though

Having said that, I did cheer for her when she was slapping the Commodore about on his sick bed, the perverted old bastard.
