Eli's house, with his billion kids running all around. Nucky rolls up -- aw, it's a family reunion! Eli's been drinking, which earns him a disapproving tut-tut from Nucky. "Hot enough for ya?" Eli asks. "Yes," Nucky replies. "And how 'bout those Phillies? And my brother tried to have me killed." Heh. Eli turns to look at him. "Et tu, Eli?" Eli, the fucking moron, obviously doesn't get the reference. Even when Nucky tells him it's Shakespeare, Eli's like, "He had a character named Eli?" He then bald-faced lies to Nucky that not only did he have nothing to do with the assassination attempt, he tried to stop it. All with the trademark Eli poor-me pout, like he can't believe he's being accused of such a thing, by his own brother. "I came to you, hat in hand," he whines. "And you pissed on me!" Can somebody pleeeeeease kill him so we don't have to go through another season of this? Nucky instructs him that he is to plead guilty to everything, to end this once and for all. He'll do two years at the most, be out in half that time (for Season 3 no doubt). It's the best he can get, and he could do a lot worse. Eli sighs. Back under Nucky's boot and damned lucky to be there.
Rothstein is meeting with Lucky and Lansky and it looks like they've finally come to him with the heroin proposition. Considering AR almost certainly knew that they had been holding out on him -- he seems to know everything -- it's pretty big of him to be so welcoming. Of course, the dollar signs in his eyes are probably brightening up his disposition some. He's already making plans to start importing it themselves. Lucky: "Just so you know, we come to you with this first." Lies. Lansky: "Out of respect." Utter horseshit. From Rothstein's conspicuous non-reaction, I'd say he knows it. Phone call -- it's Nucky. He tells AR of his current dilemma. Manny Horvitz. Would it be cool if Nucky killed him? Given the Waxey Gordon connection? AR raises his eyebrows to Lucky and Lansky, who could give a shit if Manny lives or dies. "I would have no opinion on the matter," he assures Nucky. Nucky tells him he's got a decision to make. "Flip a coin." Rothstein says. "When it's in the air, you'll know which side you're hoping for."
