A rough 24 hours for Nucky: Margaret and the children are gone, Eddie needs a hospital, and Eli is in Chicago hoping for reinforcements. Nucky turns to Chalky, who still wants a club on Atlantic City's strip. Gyp turns up the heat, stationing his men everywhere and offering $25,000 to anyone in Chalky's neighborhood who gives up Nucky. Will Chalky protect Nucky? And even so, is that enough firepower to face Gyp with Joe Masseria's men? Gillian snoops in Richard's room, and heroin is burning a hole in Luciano's pocket. Written by <>

There are handful brilliant directors out there. Boardwalk Empire has two aboard its "ship". Allen Coulter is surely one of them. This episode in particular is a true testament to his unique skill, talent, ability. Every single setup is top to bottom brilliant, with perfect A-plus performances. This season had a very tough job - matching what had been established in season one and season two is no easy task. It took a little time to find its own stride. But once found, the season went ahead with remarkable strength. This episode "Two Imposters" is one of the series all time best. Again, kudos to Allen Coulter, who, along with Tim Van Patten (a brilliant director in his own right), are bringing this HBO's gem to new heights. Bravo!!
