Nucky's in his office, dishing out abuse to his lawyer, who I finally had to look up to learn his name is Isaac Ginsburg. Obviously, Nucky is pissed that after all their fancy legal maneuvering, all he has to show for it are FEDERAL charges instead of state ones. And this new federal prosecutor won't be bought off with the promise of free blowjobs at the Ritz either. The word on her is that she's basically the token honest public servant in the AG's office. Isaac is like, "What do you want me to do if even the AG can't help you?" Nucky says between the Commodore in a diaper, O'Neill "off hiding" (that's one way of putting it), and ward bosses like Neary and Paddy Ryan presumably running scared, is there no way Isaac can lean on them? Eddie interrupts which only perturbs Nucky further. But Eddie figures Lucy with a bassinet is the more pertinent meeting. Isaac could not be more thrilled that he's off the hook for the time being.
Alone with Lucy, Nucky immediately is like "I have not seen you for at least a year." In other words: "Not my baby!" She takes offense, somehow, so he apologizes and congratulates her. Lucy comes honest: she thought of shaking him down, but knew she'd never be able to pull it off. And that's no way for a mother to behave. Nucky's happy she's taking this seriously. She reminisces about their good times, and says back then, she woke up with only one thing she had to do: make Nucky happy. Now she's got someone else she's got to make happy. Forever. She doesn't say this resentfully. In fact, there's a glimmer of hope that Lucy may be turning over a new leaf. But she needs money. Nucky asks about the father, if she even knows who it is. Oh, she knows. And he might too.
