From Emmy Award-winning writer Terence Winter and Academy Award-winning director Martin Scorsese, Boardwalk Empire chronicles the life and times of Enoch “Nucky” Thompson, the undisputed leader of Atlantic City in the 1920's. The Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning drama airs it's next episode Sunday, November 18th, exclusively on HBO.
Atlantic City, New Year’s Eve, 1922: The Roaring ‘20s are about to begin in earnest. Despite a booming economy, alcohol is scarce and gangster violence is heating up. With his marriage to Margaret already on the rocks, Nucky Thompson faces the challenge of mending old relationships and encounters new competition from a hair-trigger gangster determined to siphon off his business.
In season two, Nucky married Margaret Schroeder to prevent her from testifying in court and took revenge on Jimmy Darmody for his role in a plot against him. But his hopes for smooth sailing were derailed when she signed away his highway windfall to the church. Meanwhile, agent Van Alden fled to Illinois to escape the feds with baby and nanny in tow.
At Nucky's behest, Owen intervenes in the Gyp Rosetti-Joe Masseria alliance in New York, and Gaston Means tries to keep Jess Smith from talking in Washington, D.C. Meanwhile, Chalky eyes a future business opportunity; Rosetti is upset by an inadequate shipment; Margaret considers changes at home and the hospital; Richard looks out for Julia; and in Chicago, Van Alden suffers a professional setback.
