High comedy — Mickey's blubbering terror and confession — turns to incredible drama between Nucky and Harrow. Beneath his quivering smirk and iron mask, Harrow explains with cold distance how he killed Manny Horovitz and why. It wasn't for Jimmy's death, after all, but for Angela's, an innocent casualty of Jimmy's power grab. "Jimmy was a soldier," Harrow explains, "he fought and he lost."
Maybe Jimmy Darmody was the first man Nucky had actually killed himself. Maybe he was just the first one that mattered. Either way, Nucky is still unable to shake Jimmy's ghost, and Harrow confirms that it doesn't get any easier.
In a fantastic finish to "Bone for Tuna," Nucky asks Harrow how many people he's killed. "Sixty-three," Harrow answers plainly (he's the type of guy who keeps track of that sort of thing). More importantly, Nucky wants to know if he still thinks about any of them. "You know the answer to that," Harrow answers, one killer to another.
Three random facts from “Bone for Tuna”:
•••• Nucky is made a Knight Commander of the Order of St. Gregory, which is the same ranking attained by Bob Hope. Knight Commander is the second of four possible ranks in the order.
•••• The poem that one of Gillian's girls reads for Gyp is "Dream-Love," by the Italian-English poet and artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti. No relation, we're guessing.
•••• The vampire movie that Rosetti’s man is raving about is most likely F.W. Murnau’s cult horror classic “Nosferatu,” an unauthorized German adaptation of Bram Stoker’s “Dracula”
