Near the end of Season 3 Episode 1 of Boardwalk Empire, Richard Harrow kills two men: Manny Horvitz and somebody else.

  • Is that "somebody else" significant?
  • Was it Roland Smith (a.k.a. the thief's wheelman from earlier in the episode)?
  • Or was it simply a wheelman for the occasion and nothing more?

He's pretty likely an unlucky driver/minion of Manny's.

I don't think we have enough information to be sure, but based on:

  1. The victims location (sitting outside Manny's house waiting in a car), and
  2. The context (Manny's response to hearing a honk indicates that he was expecting to be picked up),

I think it's safe to assume that Richard's mission to avenge the murder of Tommy's parents by killing Manny also claimed the life of a hapless wheelman or accomplice for Manny's planned trip that night.
