    Recap: 'Boardwalk Empire' Season 4, Episode 3, 'Acres of Diamonds'

    Another day, another chess piece episode of "Boardwalk Empire," a writing epidemic/phenomenon endemic to long form television of late and arguably one that affected last night's penultimate episode of "Breaking Bad" as well.

    Breaking what? While the fate of Walter White is on everyone's mind as his journey kicks off in just over a week (take the phone off the hook folks!), a whole other breed of morally conflicted man is returning to the small screen too.
