At the Commodore's house, we've got a meeting of the No Nuckys Club. It should be noted that the Commodore's sitting room is adorned with all those taxidermied big game from the opening montage. It becomes clear immediately that the Klan attack was their doing. Jimmy uncomfortable with it; did they have to kill a woman? The Commodore says this is war and it's not for the squeamish. Plus he obviously could give a fuck about the darkies. The plan is to sow unrest within Nucky's kingdom. Eli says Chalky's got 10,000 men, but the Commodore says with the Klan on their side, they've got more numbers than that. The Commodore ("Lou," as Eli calls him) further plans to use Governor Edwards, who hates Nucky more than they do. They'll get the governor to intervene should there be anything so distasteful as a race riot. Eli is once again in the position of wanting to know more than the guy in charge will tell him. And likely once again jealous that Jimmy has a better position in the organization. "Nucky Thompson was weaned on my teat!" the Commodore huffs. He will handle him.
Eli leaves and passes Gillian, keeping watch as always. That lady is establishing her CREEP bona fides this season. Inside the room, Commodore scoffs about giving a small man like Eli a meager bit of power and watching it go to his head. He means to give Jimmy real power, wants him to start laying groundwork with people like the governor. He can see Jimmy is somewhat lost in thought and tells him not to worry about Nucky. Jimmy says he's not. The Commodore gives Jimmy advice via a story about the stuffed bear that's been pulling focus from the corner throughout the scene. He tracked that bear for three hours in the wild, cornered him, and when the bear got confident and thought he was scared, Commodore blasted him in the gut. "He looked me in the eyes, almost like he couldn't believe it," he recounts. He then turns to his son. "You'll be judged by what you accomplish," he pontificates, "not what you attempt."
