" Bible camp's cancelled. " -- Gyp Rosetti The rubble of Babette's Supper Club is still smoking and the echoes of last week's blast are still ringing in Nucky Thompson's ears. An episode like "The Milkmaid's Lot" could have gone down a very reflexive road. This might have been Nucky's episode to dream he's a different person while he recovers from his wounds (looking at you, Tony Soprano). Instead, Steve Buscemi turns in a stellar performance as a shell-shocked Nucky who just wants all his rivals dead and a pony for his stepdaughter.

"Life's better with friends. " - Gyp Rosetti Like most men, Nucky Thompson dreams about bacon. Unlike most men, he also dreams about dead choirboys. Yes, the whole "assassinating your surrogate son" thing is finally starting to catch up to Nucky, and it's blinding the patriarch of Atlantic City from the chaos brewing around him. As an episode, "Bone for Tuna" belongs to the chief agent of said chaos, Gyp Rosetti. His one-man blockade of the highway between Atlantic City and New York has finally caught Nucky's attention, but his one-man assault on the English language and social convention wages on stronger than ever.

"He's not so good in a crowd, but when you get him alone, you'd be surprised" -- Irving Berlin, "You'd Be Surprised" Nucky Thompson's new de facto mantra, "you can't be half a gangster," seems to be applying more and more to "Boardwalk Empire" as a show. By my count, "You'd Be Surprised" had at least five murders and three asphyxiations (two of which were of the erotic variety). We're coming up on the halfway point in season three of "Boardwalk," and it seems as though this was the week for everything that had been simmering for the first four episodes to finally boil over.

"There's gotta be easier ways to make a buck. " -- Nucky Thompson This week's episode of "Boardwalk Empire" was a sleepy affair. If you had told me before the season started that we'd see Nucky thrown in jail for violating prohibition, I'd assume we were talking about a whopper of a season finale. Instead, we have a slow crawler with Nucky being fined five dollars for possessing a flask's worth of hooch and kids reciting the state capitals. This is what happens when Gyp Rosetti sits out a week.

" Everyone dies. Not everyone keeps their promises. " The finale of "Boardwalk Empire's" third season provided more closure than excitement, capping off what has certainly been one of the worst years in Nucky Thompson's life. After last week set the table for the inevitable war between the two factions, we are caught up with a montage of the conflict between Rosetti's gang and the tenuous Chalky-Capone-Nucky Alliance. While Rosetti claims to be winning his invasion (just shy of hanging a "mission accomplished" banner up at Gillian's)

"Every day in every way I am getting better and better. " - Nelson Van Alden What's that, "Boardwalk Empire" without its tragic hero, Jimmy Darmody? What's next, an aviatrix (or "lady flyer" if you prefer) navigating across the continent? As the third season of "Boardwalk" soldiers on sans Jimmy, everyone else in Atlantic City and beyond seems to be aspiring to be a better "them" in 1923. Well, almost everyone (looking at you, Al Capone). For as long as Jimmy was around, he always reminded Nucky Thompson that he couldn't be "half a gangster.
