If it's not yet clear to her, it's certainly evident to us that Doctor Mason is basically Owen Sleater with a stethoscope instead of a pistol and that it's only a matter of time before some serious bodice-ripping occurs. Seeing the Thompson home allowed us to see that Rosetti's dog "Scruffy" has found a good home.
"Spaghetti and Coffee" is an awkward chapter of "Boardwalk Empire." After all, it's an episode that involves a showgirl servicing a radiator in the nude. Few characters -- Eli, Nucky, Chalky's daughter -- aren't quite where they belong. Some will adapt, some will refuse, and some will probably die by season's end. Let's hope that Mickey, Eli and Owen being turned away by Rosetti with the liquor shipment will snap Nucky back into action.
