It is the fifth and final season of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire. The glitz and the glam, the booze and bullets will be no more. Six years have passed since the shocking end to season four, but the blood and booze are still pouring, Nucky style.
It’s 1931, and the Great Depression is in full swing, beloved characters are dead (Who can forget Richard Harrow dying? My all time favorite character on BE and maybe all of television. His literal two faces; light and dark, deadly and loving… Le sigh). The remaining characters are trying to reinvent themselves in the aftermath of the Stock Market Crash. Enoch “Nucky” Thompson is especially in a pinch. No more of that money flowing as free as the whiskey. Times are tough and Prohibition is an even tougher game, and more deadly.
