At this, Nucky stomps off to the bathroom and returns with her "hidden" bottle of contraceptive Lysol. He tells her using makes her "like any whore." She, fairly sensibly, says she doesn't want any more babies. "That's not your right to decide!" Nucky snaps, assuring this scene a place in Women's Studies classes all over the country next semester. Margaret asks if he expected her to give him an heir, without even being married? "I thought you needed saving," he says, exposing more of his weird little psyche than maybe he intends. This, of course, brings up the whole thing with Hans, and before you know it, all the cards are out on the table. Nucky had Hans killed and she knows it and he knows she knows it. Of course, Nucky has a point when he says that no one is mourning Hans Schroeder, not him and certainly not Margaret. She slaps him for that bit of truth, and in turn, he smashes her Lysol against the mirror. "You won't be needing that anymore, will you?" he yells, and storms out. There's more than a hint of petulance whenever Nucky gets angry, and I wonder if that's the kind of thing people are talking about when they say they don't buy Buscemi in the role. I think it brings a fascinating dimension to the character, but I can see people looking for Nucky to be a Tony Soprano or an Al Swearengen to find that kind of thing disappointing.
Jimmy descends the staircase at the Commodore's mansion to find Richard Harrow with an update on the D'Alessio recon. Currently in Philadelphia, it's just Ma and Pa D'Alessio, their sisters, and their brother Adrian, who's apparently a dentist and not involved with their criminal enterprises at all. Regardless, Harrow offers to head down to Philly and knock off the non-combatant D'Alessios. You know, to draw the nefarious ones out of hiding. Jimmy's become a hollow shell of a human being lately, but even he wants no part of that. Instead, he Shanghais the doctor on his way up the stairs and asks about tests. Doc certainly has some interesting news: "There's enough arsenic in his body to take down a hippo." WELL then!
