first season was 1920 i believe since Women got to vote. season 2 was 1921 so they skipped a year. skipping 5 years is a STRETCH, but still. if they stay true to history then Rothstein doesn't die, but idk what happens then. what year did the war in Chicago take place? that's likely going to be the year for next season.

i don't think Harrow has surpassed Jimmy, but his character is more complex imo. i liked GYP, but he had to die. Harrow and Luciano are the most interesting characters to me now. Capone is great too. the guy playing him really has it down. then there's Chalky and Van Alden. still enough great characters to keep me interested. it's kind of a shame Nucky isn't all that interesting as the lead character.

And I'm glad Rosetti got killed off, but he was one of the best characters the show has had. Not sure he filled the Jimmy Darmody void, but he kept it interesting with his "kill anyone at any moment" tension.
Owen filled the Darmody role to me, at least for a little.

i never really cared for Owen in season 2. he grew on me this year although i felt his storyline with Margaret was kind of jumbled and rushed. was really pissed when he died esp. off screen. i get why they did it, but he was too badass of a guy to just get sent back in a crate.

1924 is when shit really pops off between Torrio/Capone and O'Banion. Which will probably be a good sub-plot next season, good call.

I was disappointed we didn't see Van Alden again after Capone stabbed him in the face with the fork. Right? I'm really curious as to what's next for him. Same for Harrow. I think alot of people want him to work with Nucky but I'm not sure it'll happen. I'm sure Nucky has some idea who did all the killing at the Artemis Club.

That was a really chilling scene since his murder happened off-screen. I'm sure everyone expected it to be him in the box but I was really hoping that it was the FBI agent and Owen had enough wit to get away. I didn't like him during Season 2 either because I was still behind Jimmy and Richard but after Jimmy got killed, Owen grew on me this season.

idk. only reason i can see Harrow working with Nucky is he really has nowhere else to go and the scene where he told Nucky how many people he has killed would be good foreshadowing for him working with Nucky. i hope Van Alden becomes a significant player somehow as the story progresses. dude is an amazing character and also brings the ironic comedy.

if the war pops off in 1924 then i'm guessing there won't be much of a time skip. they basically built up the war all season so i don't see them skipping over it. as for Owen, i was honestly caught off guard completely. i didn't even really recognize him until i saw how Margaret reacted. was a great scene either way. still Owen really grew on me it's a shame he's gone.

still a good sign though as it proves Winter isn't scared to kill of characters to tell his story. i'm not sure where there is to go with Margaret at this point either with Owen gone. i think they kind of hinted at an affair with the abortion doctor guy. her character has grown pretty useless to me though. i really like Kelly MacDonald though. hopefully they find something interesting for her. her kids can fuck off though, esp. teddy.

Yeah if you're not Lansky, Luciano, Capone, Torrio, or some other significant historic figure that doesn't get killed, good luck surviving lol.

Owen's death shocked me too. I saw Jimmy's end coming, but I don't think they tried to sucker punch you there. Jimmy was to me clearly was a tragic hero, Byronic even.

Rothstein seems safe then if the war erupts in '24. I guess that means O'Banion is a goner though. I agree they won't skip that. It's too important since it makes Capone stronger. Nucky clearly made an enemy with Rothstein though due to how it ended.

Also, I didn't even realize that the guy that shot up Rosetti's place when he was getting choked by that waitress was Bugsy Siegel. I have to think we'll see more of him in season 4 as well.

yeah young Bugsy is awesome.

Jimmy's saga was really great especially when I watched it for a second time. they tease his demise in the first episode of the series. the whole "you can't be a half gangster" thing really came to fruition by the finale of season 2 too. it was just great.

thought the show was good. capone's finally gonna have a big role this year, which is what they were teasing in season 3, but never happened. the scene where he went up to the chicago tribune office to the fuck with the newspaper dude was sweet. wonder if harrow returning home closes his story, and writes him off the show, or gives him a bigger role. slow start for nucky, he's not exactly the most compelling character, but that's about the most stagnant his characters ever been in an episode.

The lack of Margaret was GOAT.

The lack of VAN ALDEN was WOAT.

Good episode though. Purnsley and Capone were fucking BOSS.
