    I agree, but there seemed to be a disconnect there. Nucky agreed to run it, then suddenly after he "reluctantly" gives AR 99% of it, out of the blue Mellon is calling in the Feds on AR. I think they left a key scene on the cutting room floor.

    It seemed pretty clear that Mellon was doing something that he didn't want to do when he made that call...

    Remember, Mellon was making a deal with someone else when Nucky entered the picture. The most recent example was when Nucky spoke to Mellon and, as soon as Nucky left, the guy who's name I can't remember but speaks so colorfully and takes money in a fishbowl came out from behind a wall. It was clear they were designing a double-cross to make Nucky the fall guy for something.

    Ah, so the original deal between Mellon and Nucky to nail Mellon's enemy was a double-cross setup to make Nucky the fall guy for the distillery operation.

    Yes - at least that was the impression I had.. ...and it was the explanation I gave my wife when she was a little lost trying to figure out who was double/triple/quadruple-crossing whom.

    I gotta say, enjoyed the season, but I hope Margaret never comes back. I found her character highly distasteful and almost unbearable anymore. You don't get to be likeable when you spend most of the episodes so far being a hipocrit. You don't get to look down on Nucky for his buisness, but have no qualms reaping the benefits. You don't get to look down on Nucky for his fling with the showgirl, when she was boinking the irish boy first.

    Honestly, Nucky legitmately cared/loved her, and she pushed him away, not the other way around. And he loves those kids. I'm not sure she ever actually loved him. I hope she leaves, never to return.
