'Boardwalk Empire' Gangster Index, Season Two Finale: Jimmy Gets Christopher'd

by Alex Moaba, posted Dec 12th 2011 4:00PM
Atlantic City's tangled web of betrayal, political scheming and murder came full circle in 'Boardwalk Empire's' shocking Season Two finale. After a season of trying to take down Nucky Thompson, Jimmy Darmody finally realized how foolish he'd been to move against his former mentor, but it was too late. Even after Darmody helped make his election fraud charges disappear, Nucky repaid him with two shots to the head, an abrupt end of the line for one of the show's most compelling characters.

To keep track of the deals, deception and death, AOL TV presents the final Season Two installment of our 'Boardwalk Empire' gangster index, a guide to who's up and who's down among HBO's organized criminals.

'Boardwalk Empire' Gangster Index, Week 11: Oedipus, Meet Heroin

by Alex Moaba, posted Dec 5th 2011 5:30PM
Jimmy Darmody's wife paid the ultimate price for her husband's rookie mistakes on last week's 'Boardwalk Empire.' In 'Under God's Power She Flourishes,' Atlantic City's chief bootlegger and crime boss dealt with his wife's death by numbing himself on Luciano's heroin, and in the midst of his drugged-out flashbacks, we learned a whole lot about his bizarre relationship with his mother. When the Oedipal drama finally played out, it left the Commodore dead in his tracks.

The past also refused to stay buried for Nucky Thompson and Nelson Van Alden, as their own murderous secrets from Season One re-surfaced and threatened to put them both behind bars. Maybe they can be cell-mates.

After losing his closest allies and surviving both a political coup and an honest-to-god assassination attempt, Nucky Thompson finally walked away from his post as Atlantic City's Treasurer in 'Two Boats and a Lifeguard.'

The conspirators trying to make a move on Nucky Thompson had spent countless hours, and nearly half this season of 'Boardwalk Empire' meticulously plotting their political coup. But in 'Peg of Old,' they lost their patience to see it through, and hastily moved on to assassination.

But luck smiled down on Nuck, and the assassin's bullet went right through his hand, missing his vitals. Even so, this thing just got real. We'll have to wait to see if Nucky will exact revenge on his rivals, but for now let's catalogue the damage done in this installment.

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 24th 2011 1:35PM
On 'Boardwalk Empire,' the dominoes have started to fall in the aftermath of the Commodore's stroke. Having blindly followed the old man over the precipice, his co-conspirators are squirming and getting desperate now that he's incapacitated. In this week's 'Gimcrack and Bunkum,' they scrambled to save their hides, and the desperation manifested itself in the form of two brutal, head-mutilating murders.

Meanwhile, Jimmy continued to prove that he may be the only one with the smarts and toughness to make it on his own, while the women of 'Boardwalk' showed they can be just as violent and conniving as the men.

Just when we were starting to get a read on the complex political landscape developing on Season Two of 'Boardwalk Empire,' a massive eruption has shifted everything around ... again. With the Commodore, Nucky Thompson's chief nemesis, incapacitated by a stroke, the anti-Nucky conspirators suddenly find themselves without a leader, and panicked by the thought that betraying Atlantic City's treasurer may be the last mistake they'll make on this Earth.

Nucky's stock, meanwhile, is back on the rise, as he continues to find creative ways to quickly re-occupy the power vacuum we saw forming after his arrest. And as both Thompson and Darmody set their sites on extending their bootlegging operation into Philadelphia, a proxy war looms on the horizon.
