At Babbette's, Eddie Cantor presides over a raucous election-night celebration. Nucky sees that Anabelle has latched herself onto a new man: George Baxter, he of the Scary Roadside Handjob. Seems Anabelle hasn't upped her standards in the looks department since Sweaty O'Ponzi-scheme. Giving us a break from all that desperate awfulness is Margaret, who walks into the party wearing a gorgeous gold flapper dress and immediately catches Nucky's eye. He's pleased to see her, obviously, and she congratulates him on Bader's win. Even asks for a glass of champagne -- "Good news just isn't the same without it." Nucky obliges, through raised eyebrows, and asks about the children. "They miss their Uncle Nucky," she says, kindness radiating from her face. She can be a right bitch when it's called for, but I can understand how Nucky is so drawn to her when she's like this. In the middle of Atlantic City, she must seem like an oasis. Nucky is obviously moved that the children miss him.
