This 7 year skip is a shame and a sham!

I was looking forward to the Maranzano v Masseria war. We will never see it now

Anybody been watching? I think the season has been great so far. Love the introduction of Joe Kennedy, the actor playing him is pitch perfect. The Nucky flashback scenes haven't been as tedious as I thought they would be, they flow nicely with the other stories. I like that Bugsy is getting more shine, he's grown up since we last saw him.

My only gripe would be that it doesn't feel like a final run. Feels more like a middle of the series type season. But that will probably change soon.

Personally I've found the young Nucky stuff to be really tough to watch. I did like the inclusion of Kennedy this week. It feels like they're making an accelerated run at just trying to connect the show to some factual reality here in the very end. I have also liked all the Lucky Lansky stuff. It feels to me like they'll get to the point where they take out Maranzano, form the Luciano as big boss model, and Nucky will just be phased out as a dinosaur regional type and lose all his mojo while withering into retirement. I'm not sure how satisfying that will be, as it feels like those characters will have become the focus of the show.

I was also really disappointed in the way they washed out the Rothstein death. Basically Tessio throwing out a line about how many funerals he's had to attend in his retirement. There's been villains throughout. And the main line between Nucky and Jimmy was what it was. But Rothstein always kind of hung over everything, and the lack of conclusion there was really unfortunate to me.
