Here we go. (Nucky actually says, "Are we starting with this now?") But instead of a fight, Rosetti just starts making monkey noises. Which is frightening for a whole different reason. Nucky smiles, because what the hell else are you gonna do?
In NYC, Lansky is sending Benny out on yet another delivery, once again telling him it's not the Wild West out there. Or is it, because Benny's not halfway down the block before he's approached by a guy who obviously is trying to jump him. Benny pulls his gun, but he's overtaken from behind and the first guy starts working him over. Luckily, Lansky was close enough to see it, and he runs up, shoots the first guy dead between the eyes and fires after the second, who makes it to the getaway car and starts firing back. Benny's off the ground and chasing the car, firing indiscriminately. Lansky has to shove Benny out of the way of return fire as the second guy gets away. Benny keeps yelling, "I'll fucking kill you!" after him.
Speaking of things that may or may not be dream sequences (we were -- back on page one! Oh, cut me a break), Van Alden is lying awake in bed, staring at the ceiling, which is reflecting odd patterns from the window, while Sigrid is trying to hush their teething baby to sleep. She tells him she's soaking his shirt in lemon juice to get the ink out. She gives him a pep talk about presenting "confidence and opportunity" to his customers. She can tell work's been getting him down, and he won't talk about it, so her pep talk continues about his charming smile (um...), and she tells him to close his eyes, and before you know it, her hand is down his pajamas, and then she's on top of him and naked, and I will recap a lot of things on this show -- disfigurement and death and Paz De La Huerta's vulva, but Michael Shannon getting rode like the world's most crazy-eyed pony is not one of them. Later, Cicero.
