I don't understand the rediculously possible reviews. I'm not here to bash anything I just can't find one like able charecter in the show besides Nucky. I think all other storylines are completely pointless and really... What happened this season, I mean sum up all the things that actually happened besides Nucky's shooting which ended up pointless anyway NOTHING EVER HAPPENS! sorry for the caps just don't get it.

Gillian felt powerless by being raped by the Commodore, and she understands that men have all the power in this world. Her son then became her surrogate in this male-dominated world. That's why I believe she kissed his penis when he was a baby - that was going to be the source of her own power. The fact that by using and manipulating Jimmy this way, she was destroying him doesn't seem to have registered with her. But, then, psychosis tends to be very self-centered.

While the episode centered around Jimmy and his f'd up past.....I'm surprised the reviewer did not mention Van Alden........I've read on another site that his baby dies in the season finale........and that it was said by the woman that plays Lucy.......may not happen now since he's on the run......

So Margaret has found religion again.......how convenient...........I think Nucky might kill her......

I do think Eli will testify against Nucky....

It's too bad the last episode is this coming Sunday and we have to wait till late next summer for the next season.............

Disturbing and creepy. The flashbacks dragged and could have been cut down.

Margaret is so sanctimonious, and as you say, it's all driven by guilt. What a great character, but it's becoming hard to like her.
This show just gets better and better!

Did anyone else notice that although Gillian claimed to be drunk, she was acting completely sober except for pretending to fall of that bench after taking off her stockings? Jimmy, on the other hand, did appear to be hammered. Gillian was cool and calculating the entire night. Trying to make Jimmy jealous by flirting with his teacher, and at the same time completely upstaging Angela. Remember the first episode when Jimmy comes home from the war and Gillian jumps on him and wraps her legs around him? The character development in this show is awesome!

Superb episode. Finally a peek into Jimmy's past. I was surprised to find so much character development this late in the season, but given how much those flashback showed us, I see why the show took this route. No wonder Jimmy is so TROUBLED . . . look what he's been holding inside of him all these years. Giliian is even more despicable than I ever imagined. And now she has Jimmy's son to raise; think about the horribleness to come in that little fellow's future. The scene of the Commodore's murder was so disturbing; the scene when Gillian tells Jimmy his son will soon not even remember his mother was equally as disturbing. It was like Jimmy gave the Commodore a knife to the gut and then Gillian turned about and knifed Jimmy in the gut too. She's a sick sick woman and a fascinating character. Looking forward to flashback's that explain her psychosis -- trust me there's more there than a rape at age 13 at the hands of the Commodore.

I wanted to amend my thoughts and say Harrow will not take out Gillian. She won't die next week.

The maid will tip Nucky off, and the priest will corroborate it.
I wasn't that keen on the flashback segments, they spent too much time on that.
Richard Harrow will be the angel of death next week, he may be the one to take out Horvitz, or Gillian, she called him a simpleton and he has been stewing all season fearing he was the object of derision from Jimmy.
Margaret will not die, she is going to go crazier with religious zealotry, we DO have next season, and Nucky's legal problems are not going to be solved next week.
There is going to be a lot of cliff hanging next week.
