Jimmy has taken young Tommy down to the beach, where they are giving out horse rides. Gillian stands over by the car and smokes. Jimmy tells Tommy a story about when he was a boy and snuck off to the beach where he'd build a lean-to and pretend he was Robinson Crusoe. "With Mima?" Tommy asks. Jimmy looks over to his mother, obviously already concerned at the poisonous influence she might have over him. They really did just shave off all her dimensions this season and turned her into Livia, huh? He tells Tommy that Mima didn't know where he was. Nobody did. "Can I do that?" Tommy asks. Sure can! Jimmy hoists him onto the horse. The black man taking care of the horses comes up with two hats. "Cowboy or soldier?" Soldier, says Tommy, son of the soldier. Yeesh, with the heavy symbolism.
Back at Nucky's, he's in a celebratory (drunk) mood. Margaret is bright but disingenuous with her congratulations to him. He's all, "I know what you're thinking, but I had nothing to do with Neary's suicide." She says she believes him (she obviously doesn't; she's kind of just being a bitch rather than trying to lie about it). The funny thing is that he's actually telling the truth this time. Also, hi, you married him for the express reason not to testify, so... He shows her the newspaper, which says that Congress has approved $10 million in road appropriations for New Jersey, which means that huge plot of land they own will be worth a fortune. This is the land he deeded over to her last week. He'll just need her to sign it back over to him next chance she gets. She says of course she will. "Who knows?" he says. "Maybe you're right. Maybe God is giving me another chance." Margaret looks at him, pleased that he might be turning over a new leaf? Or just bemused at his self-delusion?
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.
