    Finally this episode takes me back to the feelings and action of first season with all components of Organized crime coming together to create a story that exhilarates the viewer!



    This week we see quite a bit of face time with the Capone crew in Chicago which is very pleasing to see. The actors in the Capone crew are great! Though this week's episode ends in a tragedy for the Capone crew it does not take away from the overall arc and story being developed with them.



    We also see poor old Eddie getting flipped and the screws being turned to him.



    This week featured not one, but TWO deaths of characters that came as a great shock to myself. After watching and being addicted to this show since the premiere so long ago it seems that nothing would shock me or catch me off guard but the writers and staff keep you guessing every week about which turns and developments may occur.



    One of the best shows on TV and dare I say HBO period hands down! Week after week they entertain and captivate!moreless

    Arguably the best episode of the series. Haven't felt an HBO punch like this since Sopranos "Blue Comet"..
