Cut to Van Alden, who is Sourly watching Randolph conduct her business, which at the moment is interviewing Neary. Her underling closes the door to Van Alden's office so he won't eavesdrop on her squeezing Neary's nuts. Even though Neary had already signed on to be a confidential witness against Nucky, she's pressing him with threats of jail time for offenses he thought he'd gotten immunity for. Meanwhile, Van Alden gets a call he must attend to.
Back to Brooklyn, the Rohans are having dinner. Aylesh asks, "Did you take a boat here, Miss?" Her sisters tell her she's not a "Miss" -- "She's our Peg of old." I love the way that phrase sounds so much; no wonder they chose it for the episode title. Margaret tells them a bit of her life in Atlantic City and her two children with American names. Eamoinn asks of her husband, and she says Hans passed a year ago. Nuala is saddened to hear she's a widow so young, but Eamoinn wants to know how a single mother has the money to jaunt out to Brooklyn for a day and leave her children in the care of others. Margaret looks ashamed when she says they're being looked after by someone she pays. The sisters chide Eamoinn, saying what's wrong if she can afford it? Eamoinn checks his watch; he's working the night shift, digging the 4th Avenue line. And while he's talking about what a tireless worker he is, he mentions that Nuala sews in a room full of a hundred women, little Beth works at a laundry, and Aylesh is in school. Otherwise she'd be loading the steamboats down at the naval yards. Margaret says she knows they work hard. She then very delicately says she could help them out. Eamoinn says they haven't asked. Awkwardness. "Beth made a trifle," Nuala offers. Y'all, consider the topic changed.
Gillian is getting changed in front of Jimmy. Her: "Eyes closed." Him: "When did you start getting modest?" They're really pushing the oedipal angle this season, huh? Jimmy's having a really hard time with what's going to happen tomorrow -- a man's going to get off a train and go put a bullet in Nucky's head, just because he said so. Gillian does not see the problem, but Jimmy is obviously struggling. What if he rescinded the order? Gillian says his friends wouldn't like that much. He says they don't really give a shit if Nucky lives or dies, but Gillian says they ARE looking to him to see what he does. How decisive he is. He can't let them see him waffle. He has to project strength. "And that's why he dies?" Jimmy asks. This isn't what they set out to do. "We weren't being honest then," Gillian says. "We are now." He finally lays his cards out: "I don't want to do this." She says it's already done; it was done when he gave the order. "The rest is just bookkeeping." She kisses him and tells him to make her proud. This lady!
