Storyline

Concerned about losing his grip on Atlantic City, Nucky deliberates a counter-move while trying to learn who in his inner circle betrayed him. As agents scour the Treasurer's office for incriminating evidence, Margaret strikes a pose from the past to help Nucky avoid further trouble in the present. In New York, Arnold Rothstein puts Jimmy on hold, but Meyer Lansky and Lucky Luciano loom as possible trading partners. Chalky is badgered in prison by Dunn Purnsley, a fellow inmate with an ax to grind; Owen Sleater, an advance man for Irish nationalist John McGarrigle, scouts the Thompson residence; the Commodore introduces Eli to "the men who made this city."

Trivia

Although the Irish nationalist slogan "Sinn Fein" was first used in the 19th Century, the Sinn Fein political party was founded in 1905 to work for a united and free Ireland. It functioned as the political arm of Irish nationalism as the IRA functioned as its military arm. It has undergone several metamorphoses over the next century. Sinn Fein relied on contributions from Irish-Americans to buy arms and finance its operations. See more »

Goofs

The episode title translates the Irish phrase "Sinn Féin" as "ourselves alone" although it is more accurately translated as "we ourselves" or more simply "ourselves." See more »

Quotes

Meyer Lansky: May I call you Jimmy?
Meyer Lansky: [after an uncomfortably long pause] Jimmy, Charlie and I have learned a great deal from Mr. Rothstein as I'm sure you have from Mr. Thompson, but nobody wants to be in school forever.
