boardwalk-empire-spoilers-review-preview-nucky-thompsonBoardwalk Empire is this season biggest must watch, and it´s getting tons of attention. (At least from me and this site, because I really enjoyed Boardwalk Empire Series Premiere)

Not only that, but after only airing Series Premiere, Boardwalk Empire got renewed by HBO for a second season, and my bet is that Nucky Thompson will become a household name in TV, and one of the best characters around.

This week, the next episode of Boardwalk Empire will air this Sunday, 9/26 at 9pm. Remember to set your DVR!

Episode 2 of Boardwalk Empire is called “The Ivory Tower”

And debuts, Sunday September 26th (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT) on HBO. Other HBO playdates:  Sept. 26 (11:00 p.m.), 28 (11:30 p.m.) and 29 (10:00 p.m.)
HBO2 playdates:  Sept. 27 (8:00 p.m.) and 30 (10:00 p.m.)

What is Episode 2 of Boardwalk Empire About?

Investigating a crime which he feels has been pinned on a scapegoat, straight-arrow Agent Nelson Van Alden (Michael Shannon) pays a visit to Nucky and leaves convinced that the Treasurer is “as corrupt as the day is long.”  Nucky quickly does damage control, enlisting his brother, Sheriff Elias Thompson (Shea Whigham), to close ranks with their underlings.  Meanwhile, in Chicago, Al Capone (Stephen Graham) shows a local reporter what he thinks about accusations that Johnny Torrio (Greg Antonacci) was involved in the slaying of local mobster “Big Jim” Colosimo (Frank Crudele).  Back in Atlantic City, Nucky discusses the upcoming election with his aging mentor, Commodore Louis Kaestner (Dabney Coleman), with whom he debates the women’s vote issue.   Later, before heading out for a night on the town, Nucky rebukes an irate Arnold Rothstein (Michael Stuhlbarg) over the phone, then meets privately with Margaret Schroeder, who asks him for help in providing for her children.  As a long day ends, a traveling salesman named George Baxter (Allen Lewis Rickman), in town for a few days with an unwilling young beauty named Claudia (Megan Ferguson), makes a startling discovery while on the road home to Baltimore.
Episode was Written by Terence Winter; directed by Tim Van Patten.
