Nucky and Margaret are in bed, post-coital and discussing that most common of pillow-talk topics: electioneering. He's fretting about this reform candidate, so much so that he presses Margaret to spread the word to her lady friends -- the Temperance League, whoever -- to vote Republican. Margaret demurs that she's not much of an orator, but Nucky reminds her of the time she talked a circle around Senator Edge. So he once again asks her to address the League on his behalf. She's considering it, but then she starts talking about Madame Jeunet again. Only this time, she's learned her lesson. She's not taking this from a civic fairness angle. She simply tells Nucky, "You want me to dress beautifully, right? Well, Madame Jeunet is the only person in town who can do that for me. I want to look pretty for you; help me help you help Madame Jeunet to keep me in couture for as long as I'm with you." You wonder if Margaret realizes she's basically decided to take the Lucy approach to matters. Especially when Nucky's reaction is all gross condescension. "Why didn't you just say that in the first place?" he asks. Margaret smirks like she's pulled something off, but I'm saying: it's a Lucy move.
Nucky shows up at Jimmy's jail cell and is let in by Agent Sebso, who -- given Nucky conspiratorial thanks -- appears to be on Nucky's payroll. Who knew?? Jimmy tells Nucky what Luciano told him, that he and Rothstein are backing the D'Alessios. He then asks Nucky to bail him out, but Nucky tells him there's no kinda bail for five counts of murder. Jimmy then asks for a lawyer, which Nucky doesn't think will do much good. Nucky's either pretty sure he's going to get Jimmy out of this through his own methods or else he's maybe enjoying Jimmy cut down to size like this. He's nervous enough to ask Nucky to call his father. Jimmy thinks he has reason to be, with Billy's testimony and all. Nucky assures him he's going to be fine -- it just won't be through the legal system that he gets free.
Van Alden calls up Supervisor Elliott, positively giddy with the news of Jimmy's arrest. Even Elliott is pleased, offering his congratulations on a job well done. After he hangs up, Van Alden even has some kind words for Sebso about the help he provided. Abashed, Sebso apologizes about the telegram. Van Alden is magnanimous, if creepily religiously so. Sebso then inquires about Billy Winslow, and whether it's safe to keep him in A.C. Why not move him to Manhattan to keep him safe? Ohhh, clever man, Nucky Thompson. Clever.
