Outside the office, Lucky opines that "AR don't like saying no." Jimmy's like, "He don't like saying yes either, apparently." Lucky then extends an unexpected invite to a poker game he holds in the city. Jimmy's not sure what Lucky's angle is on this thing. The mistrust between them is still so thick. Lucky's like, "Fine, go fry a fuckin' egg, Farmer John." Jimmy goes to leave, then turns back to Lucky: "Give it to me straight." Lucky obliges: "Meyer thinks we should talk."
Back in AC, Nucky meets with his lawyer while shaving/changing from his night in jail. The lawyer says the bust came down from Governor Edwards, who is suddenly emboldened. And as for mister Solomon Bishop, Nucky wants to know his weaknesses. He a poor but honest type? The lawyer's like, "Married to a lesser Whitney and set his annual salary to one dollar per year, so no." I love the idea of a "lesser" Whitney. Anyway, the lawyer says that from his sources down at the courthouse, he's learned that Nucky's ship is leaking. There are two confidential witnesses against Nucky who are prepared to testify to widespread election abuses, voter intimidation, fraud, theft of ballot boxes and bribery. Eddie then tells him Margaret has heard the news, and to Nucky's credit, he asks about the children. The state police have now banished Eddie from the office, but he's already traumatized by what he saw there. "There were men touching your possessions in ways I consider offensive," he recalls.
