Nucky and Fallon are in his office, musing on how ridiculous these charges of "asking someone to commit murder" are. Who ever heard of THAT as a crime? Nucky yells at Eddie for the empty bourbon bottle, while Fallon changes the subject to Eli. Can Nucky make him an offer? Nucky says Eli isn't the real problem. Ah yes. Margaret. Fallon says her testimony is what will sink Nucky, even if she doesn't know anything concrete. She will be the one who turns all the accusations and hearsay and makes it all seem plausible, if not probable. If Margaret testifies, bottom line, it's all over. Nucky thinks it over, as Eddie comes in with a call from Chalky.
Elsewhere, Jimmy smokes alone at home and waits. And waits. Nucky (with Owen Sleater in tow) shows up and just walks right into the house. Jimmy comes downstairs with his gun. Nucky introduces Jimmy to Owen, and Jimmy tells him to wait outside. "It's okay," he says, "I used to do your job." Owen: "You're the reason I'm doing it now." Oooh! Nucky nods and Owen leaves. Nucky then apologizes about Angela, and Jimmy tells him it was this guy Manny Horvitz. Nucky pretends he never heard of Manny before, but if he hears anything, he'll let Jimmy know. Jimmy pours himself a drink, "to the lost." He tells Nucky that the Commodore is dead and further says he should've killed him the moment he suggested betraying Nucky. He talks about wanting to kill his father since he was a kid. Nucky, of course, gets it. Jimmy offers to make up for this all somehow. Nucky, showing just how wounded he's been by Jimmy, just wants an explanation -- why? Jimmy says he was angry, he was hurt, the war -- nothing concrete but a whole lot of potential reasons. He says the shooting never should have happened, though he trails off. "It was Eli," he finally says. He wants to make things right -- "just tell me how to help you."
