Boardwalk Empire's Al Capone and Son

Boardwalk Empire: Finale

Boardwalk Empire, one of the most beautiful television shows ever created.  Dark, rich and deeply felt, there was not an episode in the five-season run that was not artfully done.

As a fan of Duke Ellington I am happy to share that the song playing here was “Mood Indigo.”

There’s a spoiler below.  By the way, the apartment – The Eldorado – was built in 1930 and is still renting apartments today.

Margaret’s line hit it for me:

“Here’s an experiment for you: think about the things you want in life, then picture yourself in a dress.”

Of course the bad guys didn’t get Nucky in the end-  and who did was a full circle moment that required some math.  And when it happened, oh boy.  An ending I will not soon forget.
