    Nucky Thompson Finds Out Who His Real Friends Are In Boardwalk Empire's Best Episode This Season [Episode #11, 'Two Imposters']

    We won’t look this gift horse in the mouth too much, but “Boardwalk Empire” Season 3 went from a passive slow walk to a mild trot, then finally to an explosive gallop late in the game.

    What’s In The Box? ‘Boardwalk Empire’ Takes A Page From The ‘Se7en’ Playbook In Episode #10, ‘A Man, A Plan...’

    Recap: 'Boardwalk Empire' Builds Up To An Explosive Finale In Episode #8, 'The Pony'

    "Jimmy deserved better than this," Richard Harrow (Jack Huston) says with disgust. The "funeral" for Jimmy Darmody (Michael Pitt) is equal parts sham, disgrace and an utter joke.
