Nucky arrives to meet Rosetti at that dingy diner in Tabor Heights. Feels like one of those Real Housewives summits, though I can't imagine it will live up to Ramona and Aviva's sullying of Norma's. Things are tense at first, with Nucky saying he obviously offended Gyp in some way. "Although you're someone who could find an insult in a bouquet of roses." Hey, calling it out doesn't make it any less irritating. Rosetti says Nucky's restrictive distribution is threatening his livelihood. Nucky says he needs to simplify. They really do seem to be at an impasse. Nucky says he's willing to use the back roads through the Pine Barrens to circumvent Tabor Heights. Ah, the Pine Barrens, eh? Shout out from Buscemi and Terrence Winter to their finest hour?
Rosetti thinks that route is probably a slog, and "If I was you? Every inch of that road would stick in my craw." Nucky says Rosetti's not him; he learned a long time ago not to take things personally. He... did? "Everyone's a person, though, right?" Gyp says, "so how else could they take it?" That articulates the Survivor-contestant mindset better than anybody else I've ever heard. In the interests of honoring what was once a fruitful business relationship, Nucky invites Rosetti to be his guest in Atlantic City tonight, and he'll send him home with a full month's supply of hooch, to keep his head above water, and to allow him to leave the nice people of Tabor Heights alone. The dumpy sheriff from last week chimes in that it'd be a lot healthier for everyone. Good God, nothing worse than when a low-level accomplice speaks up like he's got a say in the matter. Rosetti asks what happens after a month, but Nucky says he doesn't consider that his problem. Rosetti deems this a "square enough deal," and Nucky stands up to shake hands, which Rosetti does reluctantly. So... great?
At the Maison Derriere, Gillian's on the phone with Lucky Luciano, ostensibly talking about repairs that need to be done to the house but actually serving as a grand expositional repository. We learn that: Gillian and Lucky are partners in the brothel business and that Gillian is promising that Jimmy will sign the deed to the house over to Lucky "as soon as he comes home," which means either Gillian knows her son's dead and isn't telling anybody or else she doesn't know and actually thinks he left for the army. Either way, Lucky doesn't seem overly sympathetic and bluntly tells Gillian to call him when she starts to turn a profit.
