BOARDWALK EMPIRE RECAP
SEASON TWO, EPISODE SIX
"THE AGE OF REASON"
THIS WEEK: Written by Bathsheba Doran and directed by Jeremy Podeswa, "The Age of Reason," explores the notion of forgiveness as well as confession. Some key moments:
• After getting ships seized by the Coast Guard a few weeks back, Nucky orchestrates a risky liquor delivery in Philadelphia via bootleggers Waxey Gordon and Arnold Rothstein.
• Attorney General Harry Daugherty faces a political quandary and throws a monkey wrench into Nucky's election fraud case.
• Jimmy Darmody finds a new mentor in the mutton-chopped Leander Whitlock, the Commodore's longtime lawyer.
• Margaret Schroeder digs deep into her soul and confesses her sins - especially one she'd been hiding.
• Lucy Danziger struggles with her solitude while Treasury Agent Nelson Van Alden wrestles with his conscience.
