What a great season it has been, and it comes down to an all out battle.

Who will survive?

Bobby Cannavale as Gyp Rossetti has to be one of the greatest villains on TV in many years

What will happen to Richard Harrow?

Will Nucky Thompson owe Al Capone his life?

This really is a great show. Hate to see the season end but I'm looking forward to season 3. This has been the best season so far IMHO.

Can't wait for it to come back. Called after the show to cancel HBO, will pick it up again when True Blood and Newsroom come back.

Gyp was one of the best nutcases I've seen anywhere on tv in ages.Would it be too much to ask that he survived his stabbing & came back in season 4 to haunt Nucky ??That would be a bit of a stretch eh ? <lol>

What's the deal with wifey? The encounter did not seem to shut out the possibility of a return to Nucky. Thoughts? I guess the blood was just the aftermath of the abortion.

Also was the Richard Harrow child delivery supposed to be the end, or was there some daylight for them? Love how the dad now has total respect for him!

Were those 2 dope buyers fake agents, or real agents in the pocket of Rothstein?

Why would Mellon trash his own distillery by calling the feds in on Rothstein? Why wouldn't he just call in a hit on Nucky for failing to run it properly as he had agreed? That was very confusing. Mellon wouldn't take orders from Nucky, so I'm lost as to his motivation.

Why did the other two of Gyp's men stand idly by while the one sellout guy from the closet shived him?

I'm guessing Capone's slaughter of Massaria's men is the beginning of a big Chicago power play by him.

Why did Chalky assume Nucky could just give him the blown-up club on the Boardwalk? Nucky was clear: "How can I give you what I don't own?"

And too bad we didn't get an update on the fallen agent-turned-iron-salesman. He is one creepy character.

I'll take a stab at them...

1) Margaret? I think it foreshadowed a return on her part but with tension and regrets. remember, she had an abusive husband and learned "survival instincts".

2) Dope agents. Who knows? They could be real or on the take or completely phony. Could be bigotry involved (wanting to keep the Jewish guy down) See Season 3.

3) Mellon. Remember - they thought they were setting up *Nucky*. They were working against him - I was *shocked* when mellon called Nucky to 'give' him the distillery. The fact that Nucky a) Had Doyle over there (who got 11 of his men killed in Tabor Heights) and B) left Rothstein holding the bag (after Arnold refused to help Nucky go after Gyp) looks like a pure genius series of moves.

4) Gyp's henchmen. When Massarillo pulled out, they knew the writing was on the wall. They were smart enough to NOT get in the way of the hitman.

5) Capone. I'm thinking you're right.

6) Chalky knows that the booze doesn't flow into a club or restaurant without Nucky's stamp of approval.

7) Agent Nelson Van Alden (George Mueller)... How he factors into Capone's emerging empire should be interesting.

I bet you would be good in a knife fight, because that was a good stab:)

My only thing with Margaret at the end, it happened so quickly. I was wondering if she was going to wake up from a nightmare to find Nucky was never their?

Thanks, DJ, great analysis! I didn't realize the distillery deal was to set Nucky up for a big fall. So sticking Rothstein in there puts him in the rat trap instead!

I don't think the deal between Mellon and Nucky was a set up to trap Nucky. I think Nucky twisted/blackmailed Mellon into turning the tables on AR.
