Review

For the brave souls who have stuck with this extraordinary series the rewards are coming now. From the start, this penultimate episode hits you like a double shot of moonshine on a hot day. Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi), sometime emperor of Atlantic City, is on the run from Gyp Rosetti’s thugs. It’s the end of days.

But this is where BE’s lavish cast of gangster antiheroes comes into its own, as characters the writers have happily ignored for long stretches of plot time ride to the rescue. I’m thinking of Chalky White, ruler of the black side of town. He looks like Nucky’s last ally, but what an ally.

Summary

Nucky and his assistant are forced to seek refuge with local racketeer Chalky White when Rosetti makes his move in Atlantic City. Lucky Luciano makes a deal he could regret, war veteran Richard Harrow loses his house privileges and Gillian contemplates the future. Drama set during the 1920s, starring Steve Buscemi and Michael Kenneth Williams.
