Storyline

Nucky's father dies, prompting Nucky's reflections on life's priorities. He asks Margaret's children to call him dad, he goes to Jimmy and the Commodore with a stunning announcement, and he tells Owen he's going to Ireland. Behind the scenes, it's unclear if this is a conversion or a new ploy: Nucky encourages Chalky to call a strike of the Black workforce in the middle of tourist season, and Eli warns Jimmy that Nucky's smarter than any of them. Angela learns more about Jimmy's work and, at the shore, meets a liberated woman from San Francisco. Van Alden hires a nanny for Abigale. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>
