Margaret wakes up to the sounds of Nucky out in the yard with the kids, teaching Emily to walk and yelling encouraging words at her. Margaret is duly heartened. Cut to the porch a bit later, and Margaret, all business, requests Nucky's accompaniment to the church, where she plans to make a full confession to God, followed by marrying Nucky. Nucky starts to thank him, but she clips him short and tells the children they'll be back shortly. So she's not TOO heartened.
Esther Randolph is at home, in her underwear, practicing her opening statement. While she does this -- and jaunty piano music plays -- we see Margaret, in her veil, making her confession. Esther lays out her case that Nucky murdered Margaret's husband, while Margaret prepares to be wed. Esther continues, outlining Nucky's other crimes. While she does this, Jimmy and Richard storm Al Neary's office, where he's fucking the secretary from behind, as is dictated by the HBO production code. Back to the wedding ("Let women be subject to their husbands as to the Lord..."). Back to Randolph ("Enoch Thompson is a man loyal only to himself"). Then back to the County building, where Jimmy and Richard -- as the poor secretary runs away -- force Neary to type out a confession, implicating Eli. Neary laments a "fuckin' confession signed at gunpoint." Not just a confession, Jimmy notes. "A suicide note," Richard croaks out. Gun - mouth - BLAMMO. Don't worry, we totally get to see the back of Neary's head, with the hole dripping blood onto the floor; remember, we're in Boardwalk 2.0 now -- it's nothing but murders and incest so that PLEASE GOD nobody calls the show boring anymore.
Courtroom. Randolph is expressing her disgust to the court regarding the last-minute marriage, witness "suicide" and last-minute recantations that have effectively neutered her case. Never in her life has she seen such tactics. Fallon and the defense are all shrugged shoulders and fake outrage at such accusations. The judge calls the attorneys up, tells Randolph that her major witnesses are gone and she has no chance of getting a murder conviction. He basically tells her to bail now, before jeopardy attaches, and try again when she's got her ducks in a row. Though Fallon mocks her ("She who fights and runs away") with a smirk, Randolph says she'll take the ducks. Case dismissed, without prejudice. Nucky's a free man, for the moment.
