At the beginning of the season, I had Boardwalk Empire's second season pegged as “The Rise and Fall of Nucky Thompson”. To a certain degree, I hit the nail on the head. However, in retrospect, it was also flat out wrong. This season was truly about Jimmy Darmody's rise to power, and how he dealt with inheriting a criminal empire. The end of this week's makes some fundamental changes to the power dynamic in Atlantic City, and sent one more more major player amongst The Lost.
