Storyline

While Ace tours a prison outreach horse retirement farm with Claire, Israel tries to convince Smythe that his boss is on the level. Jerry and his erstwhile card dealer, Naomi, try to win their way into a poker tournament. Lonnie decides to "go it alone" by putting in a claim for another horse, a filly named Niagara's Fall. Walter meets with Hartstone, a lawyer, to defend his ownership of Gettin'Up Morning, and has to make a decision about which jockey will ride him next. Rosie asks Joey to be her advocate; Ronnie attends AA in an attempt to get his life, and career, back on track. Written by HBO Publicity

Trivia

A horse was injured during filming and later euthanized. This was the second time a horse was injured and euthanized during production of this series. In the credits, the American Humane Association certification "No Animals Were Harmed" does not appear. Instead it says, "The American Humane Society Monitored the animal action." The horses' deaths led to the series' eventual cancellation by HBO. See more »

Too many threads...
12 March 2012 | by inframanSee all my reviews

This show is really starting to drag. I mean I don't have a problem with complicated plots, especially when the acting is as first-rate as it is here, to say nothing of the colorful writing, a mix of Hemingway & Runyon with maybe a splash of the Bard here & there.

As I say, it doesn't bother me at all to have to follow multiple plot threads, but I start getting lost when a lot of crumbs get tossed in amongst the threads, and I have to say, sadly, in this episode the crumbs bury the threads.

Sorry, I care more about the gangsters & the gamblers than I do about an orphan boy or a horse farm run by convicts.

So if they could just wind this up with the same style & pizazz that began the season, then I'll wish for a second season.
