Margaret is knitting downstairs with the fan on when Nucky arrives. And while it's clearly balls hot in Atlantic City, she's ice cold to him. He gets right to the point -- their shared Catholicism, which they both approach quite differently. She thinks it's simple -- he's lost his faith. He cracks a joke that a benevolent God wouldn't have stuck him with that mug of his, and this gets her to crack the slightest of smiles. He says his relationship with whatever divine being there may or may not be doesn't need rules. "So your God asks nothing of you?" she asks/accuses. It asks that he loves and protects his family, is his answer. Family is Nucky's religion. He promises that Margaret's pain will get better, and they can weather this as a family. Right now, however, he needs her to marry him -- so she won't have to testify. Oh, he WANTS to marry her, but he's being honest here about the legal reasons. It's an interesting angle. He admits he's afraid of dying or spending his life in jail, and while Margaret tends to a whistling kettle, she remarks, "You are always surprising. I'll give you that."
Leander is meeting with Jimmy and Gillian about how they're going to handle the Commodore's death. Like, for example, the fudged death certificate that lists the cause of death as "accident," which Leander is sure to remind them "cost a pretty penny." I like Leander. I wish they gave him stuff to do this season. As for the will, it hasn't been revised since 1914, so the main beneficiary for his entire estate is one LouAnn Pratt. Yes, the maid who was poisoning him to death. Girl, you should have held out a little longer! Gillian and Jimmy are aghast, and after confirming that without a will, the estate would go to Jimmy, with it passing on to Tommy in the case of Jimmy's demise (ahem), Jimmy tears up the will without a second thought. I suppose LouAnn doesn't really deserve the estate after attempted murder, but that still seemed cold. The menfolk -- Al Neary, Paddy Ryan, some dude with a mustache -- arrive, and Gillian instructs Jimmy to "be firm in what you want." Jimmy tells her flat out: "No more advice, Ma!" The cronies are overflowing with condolences about the Commodore's death. Jimmy tries to maintain his position of authority as he says he's rethought their position on Nucky. He says they're going after Eli instead. They will all recant and blame it all on Eli. Neither Neary nor Ryan like this very much -- it ruins their reputations, for one thing, and they're really liking the way things are without Nucky. They look to Leander, who's been relatively pro-Nucky, but he says he would advise Jimmy to "stay the course." Neary and the guys are sympathetic to what Jimmy's been through; they supportively tell him to hold firm. Jimmy sees he's alone on this and ... ready? ... he pouts his lips.
