'Boardwalk Empire': Dazed and confused

[Editor's Note: This post contains spoilers for the November 11 episode of HBO's "Boardwalk Empire."]

We have three episodes left in this season, and if Sunday's “The Milkmaid’s Lot” is any indication, it looks like Nucky Thompson will be headed into battle alone.

I blame Billie Kent.

'Boardwalk Empire': Gillian’s dark twisted fantasy

[Editor's Note: This post contains spoilers for the November 4 episode of HBO's "Boardwalk Empire."]

I’ll go ahead and say that I won’t miss Billie Kent, but her loss and what led to it will have huge implications for our surviving cast.

Before we get to the explosive conclusion for Sunday's “Pony,” we have to start with Mama Jimmy, who pretty much set everything in motion.

'Boardwalk Empire': Momma Jimmy, the Easter Bunny

I’d like to dedicate this recap to commenter “jon,” whose prediction for Momma Jimmy (a.k.a. Gillian) came to light in last night’s “Sunday Best.”

The episode centered around our characters all spending Easter Sunday with their respective families, and Gillian’s grand scheme to regain control and continue her path as one of the more manipulative and creepy characters in Atlantic City. No surprise here, we’ll start with her:

'Boardwalk Empire': Lock, stock and whiskey barrel

[Editor's Note: This post contains spoilers for the October 21 episode of HBO's "Boardwalk Empire."]

After last week’s action-packed episode, Sunday's “Ging Gang Goolie” was just plain weird, due mostly in part to the creepiness that is Gillian Darmody, a.k.a. Mama Jimmy.

But let me start with my boy Nucky Thompson. The storyline seems to move forward a bit when Nucky isn’t out chasing the likes of Billie Kent, and on Sunday he headed to NYC to pay off Harry Daugherty via Gaston Means.

Yet when Nucky and the third-person-referencing George Remus showed up, Means was nowhere to be found.

[Editor's Note: This post contains spoilers for the October 14 episode of HBO's "Boardwalk Empire."]

Sunday's episode, “You’d Be Surprised," was full of them - surprises, that is. There was a plethora of “OMG” and “WTF” moments from start to finish.

In a way, the entire 58 minutes opened and (more or less) ended with Gyp Rosetti.

'Boardwalk Empire': Boys will be boys

[This post contains spoilers to the October 7 episode of HBO's "Boardwalk Empire."]

Just when "Boardwalk Empire" seemed to drag a bit with last week's episode, “Blue Bell Boy" picked up the pace and showed us that Nucky Thompson has made the full transition to gangster.

That’s a good thing, seeing as Gyp Rosetti continues to put Nucky’s business to the test.
