Where We Left Off: Nucky narrowly won his war with hothead Gyp Rosetti, but he lost Margaret, who moved back to Brooklyn and vowed to never take another dime from Nucky. Van Alden was caught in middle of a war between Dean O'Banion and Al Capone. Nucky gave Rothstein control of a distillery, but then alerted the authorities to Rothstein's bootlegging operation.
What's Next: Nucky tries to make peace after his tumultuous war with Gyp, but soon finds himself at odds with Valentin Narciss (Jeffrey Wright), a violent force from Harlem who tries to muscle in on Chalky’s action. Nucky is also tempted by a business venture in Florida with speakeasy owner Sally Wheet (Patricia Arquette). Gillian seeks custody of her grandson while finding a new romantic entanglement (Ron Livingston), and Capone steps up his operation in Cicero with the help of his two brothers (Domenick Lombardozzi and Morgan Spector).
