Prepare to see a different side of the newest gangster to strike Atlantic City in Boardwalk Empire Episode 3.07, “Sunday’s Best.”
We’ve been waiting for the war to ramp up between Gyp (Bobby Cannavale) and Nucky and based on the early “Sunday Best” previews, Gyp will declare war tonight.
Although there are nearly ten different story lines going on at any given point on Boardwalk Empire, we’re looking forward to seeing what the future holds for Richard Harrow (Jack Huston). He’s been masterless ronin since Jimmy died. Still he’s had a few good scenes this season, including the scene when he got revenge for Jimmy by killing Manny (William Forsythe) in “Resolution.” And who can forget the great moment when he punked Mickey Doyle (Paul Sparks) for “shooting his mouth off” regarding Manny’s murder?
Margaret’s (Kelly Macdonald) story arc has been a bore for the majority of Season 3. However, her rekindled affair with Owen (Charlie Cox) in “Ging Gang Goolie” added a little spice to her character.
The Margaret-Owen affair reminds me of the brief would-be fling between Carmela Soprano (Edie Falco) and Furio (Federico Castelluccio) on The Sopranos – except Furio never had the chance to seal the deal. Furio was simply sent back to Europe when Tony got wind of a potential affair, I’m sure Owen would be dealt a worse fate should Nucky find out Owen is actually bedding his wife.
In this clip from Boardwalk Empire Season 3 Episode 7, “Sunday Best,” we see a very different Gyp. The bootlegging gangs may be afraid of him, but his family has a different perspective.
