Worst: Ever-Shifting Alliances
We like to think of ourselves as intelligent TV viewers, but we dare you to keep up 100% with all the different alliances made this season. First, Nucky (Steve Buscemi) and Rothstein (Michael Stuhlbarg) are with Waxey Gordon. Then Jimmy's with Manny Horvitz (William Forsythe). Wait, now Jimmy's with Gordon? Oh, now Horvitz wants to meet with Nucky. The head of harbor patrol meets with Jimmy and the Commodore about shipping their liquor in and blocking Nucky's. Then he meets with Nucky to pledge his loyalty.
Don't even get us started on trying to figure out exactly who third-person speaker George Remus is down with. The intricacy and politics between the various crime syndicates are intriguing and all, but it got a little dizzying. Clearer partnerships next season, please.
