Boardwalk Empire - Season 5: Predictions *SPOILERS* Showing 1-10 of 10
‘Boardwalk Empire’s Terence Winter On Finale Shocker, Nucky’s Fate & More
By Anthony D'Alessandro. Winter jumped from in season 4 to in season 5, given how it was a pivotal year at the dawn of the Depression: Al Capone Stephen Graham goes to jail, and Charlie Luciano Vincent Piazza forms the mob commission. For Winter, the series finale shocker was poetic justice, with no other ending as an alternative. In the wake of the roaring 20s, the real Nucky served a four-year prison term during the early s for tax evasion, then worked in sales for Richfield Oil Company and Renault Winery. The episode begins with Nucky taking a swim in the ocean, his first in 45 years. Maybe those plans would last two weeks before he got himself in trouble again.
Rodrigo Perez. An underwhelming ending to an unfortunately underwhelming final season. And like the entire season, it was an episode of inevitability tipped off early on, coupled with slow goodbyes, as most of the characters either closed the book entirely or started to look towards their future. In Chicago. The mobster puts on a brave face, but knows there is no escaping the IRS. Capone feigns a few moves, tell his brother Ralph Domenick Lombardozzi to bribe who he can, but this is a federal case, not something within the jurisdiction of the Windy City, and it soon dawns upon Capone that the end is near.
Boardwalk Empire season 5 came to a close on HBO last night, with the handful of people left watching it given closure as Nucky Thompson met his fate on the boardwalk.

Sad as we are to see HBO's ' Boardwalk Empire ' brought to a close by its fifth and final season, the time-jump to will bring with it significant plot advancements, and new challenges for Nucky Thompson.

History records that the real Rothstein was assassinated in over a gambling debt, and with 'Boardwalk Empire' season 5 moving several years ahead into , well Working on Wall Street, Margaret Kelly Macdonald finds herself in the hot seat when her boss, facing an internal investigation, decides his own future. Down but never out, Chalky Michael Kenneth Williams seizes an opportunity to extricate himself from a difficult situation.
Read at your own risk. The show arguably reached its emotional climax in the penultimate episode, when Nucky Thompson Steve Buscemi agreed to give up his Atlantic City empire to New York rival Charlie Luciano Vincent Piazza in order to save his nephew Willie. The best and worst series finales of all time. I think Nucky's a guy who lived by the sword and unfortunately died by the sword. It came full circle: The act of betrayal, giving up Gillian to the Commodore, destroyed his life, destroyed her life and three generations of her family. It was just the fitting end to that story for us. It wasn't meant to render any kind of judgment on him at all.
