  • DEATH ON THE BEACH

    Boardwalk Empire's Season 3 Finale: The Resurrection of Nucky Thompson

    This is a season that was ultimately about the tension between haves and wants, and the kind of trouble you can get into when you aren’t willing to be happy with what you've got.

  • Episode Summary

    As Capone's cavalry rides in, the war starts: with firepower on the one hand and scheming to alienate Masseria from Rosetti, Nucky fights to get his business back and keep his life. Gillian takes on Gyp with her very own weapons, but sees herself overpowered; Richard poses as a one-man-army and seems to have more luck saving what's important. Meanwhile, Margaret has run off to face difficult decisions – not only about her unborn baby, but also about the future of her marriage.

      what a great season finale I was just mesmerized by the whole atmosphere created by season 3. The way season 3 started off I thought it was getting slow and having more distractions but then you know boardwalk empire is about telling story of every character and his past and then at last a big explosion comes up it was very sad to see owen slater death I felt very depressed at that movement but then I remember the lines of nucky kent death was also very sad good to chalky white came to help nucky Thompson when all his friends betrayed him now what about gyp rossetti very strange fellow I think of him as sexual driving character good to see his death I still don't know why capone came to rescue nucky I think he offered something he couldn't refuse and at last the political slap that nucky gave to Arnold with that George mellon distillery thing was just amazing but then you know that you cant be half a gangster so till season 4 goodbyemoreless

      Great finale for a season full of problems of all sorts for Nucky. I guess Rosetti was the most unstable and hard-to-deal-with character he ever had to face (can't help myself, but all the time, Gyp made me think of Till Lindemann, the lead singer of . The Emmy for Bobby Cannavale was really well-deserved!

      Worthy final of 3rd season. All lose ropes come together.

      Most epic season finale I've ever seen in a serie. Love the transition of Nucky from being a legitimate character from the Boardwalk into a more darker person. I can't wait for season 4 to start.
