Montage Time! In true Godfather style, we see Nucky giving his speech, which is kind hilarious in its grandiosity ("Gentlemen of the Fourth Estate..."), while Jimmy and Capone (with a big assist from Richard Harrow) get to the business of dispatching D'Alessios. Nucky's speech acknowledges the violence that has been on the rise since Prohibition kicked in, but he lays the blame for that violence straight at the feet of outsiders -- brothers from Philadelphia who meant to do Atlantic City harm. Oh, and they were in league with Hans Schroeder, who at this point is about as convenient a scapegoat as you can get. Nucky does manage to give Eli full credit for uncovering this criminal scourge and bringing them to justice. Speaking of which, the assassinations are pretty thorough. Jimmy uses his fancy war knife to slice Doogie Howser's pal's throat open while he's in a barber's chair, for instance. Harrow even kills the kid. The righteous killings certainly make for potent newspaper headline's on Election Day.
Nucky's glad-handing voters -- and making a point to congratulate the women -- on the Boardwalk voting lines. As we see person after person pass through Nucky's line of sight, nearly everyone getting a by-name greeting from Nucky, we get a sense of just how hard Nucky has to work at this consummate-politician thing. I'd like to see Eli charm this many people at once. Nucky spots Margaret on the line, wearing a lovely purple velvet hat (purple certainly seems to be the color of her liberation), and though he doesn't stop to speak to her, they share a look. Then Nucky proceeds to tell the rest of the line to make sure to vote Republican.
