I don't feel as though Richard Harrow had any politcal or motivation or intentions of revenge when he re-entered that brothel fully armed and ready. He has been crafted as a character of loyalty and integrity, who strongly values the commitments he makes. When he killed Manny Horvitz it was only to avenge Angela's death, because she was an innocent victim. ...

Richard Harrow is an ex US Army sharpshooter who on meeting Jimmy Darmody gets swept into the life of being a gangster. His character is complex, he seems very sensitive, plus he is loyal and caring to friends, including the Darmody family in Season 2, and even Gillian Darmody to an extent in Season 3. This contrasts with the fact that he seems ...

Gyp Rosetti is (from the words of a producer) a combination of a few different gangster-types from around that era. One has to wonder, out of the plethora of prohibition personalities the writers can choose from, which real life people is Gyp meant to be an amalgam of. Since one of the biggest characters missing from the Boardwalk Empire lineup is Benny ...

The fatality rate on Boardwalk Empire is so high, it's pretty easy to lose count. But if I recall correctly, you've only missed one other instance: The season three episode Two Imposters, where Nucky kills three of Rosetti's men who come to assassinate him and then another one of his men when the truck he's hiding in is stopped. This brings the number of ...

It's his mother Gillian who initiates the intercourse; Jimmy tries to get out of bed but she stops him and says they're not doing anything wrong: A train passes and he says goodnight and goes to kiss her forehead. She tilts her head upward and kisses her son open mouthed. She tells him that there is nothing wrong with any of it and repeats this ...

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: The victims location (sitting outside Manny's house waiting in a car), and 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 ...
