1) Conclude that its Chalky's. Pretty obvious I thought when he asked the daughter if she knew her daddy and she said mommy had to leave or something. Good thing it was too, cause ultimately Chalky ended up sacrificing himself for his family i.e. his child and the mother of his child as opposed to sacrificing himself just for some chick that got him into so much trouble and was a big reason he lost everything in the first place. Also, seems like a nice touch that last season him and his troubles were basically the whole reason his daughter died, and now he became the reason his daughter should be able to live a good life (well I guess that's open-ended since it depends on if Narcisse keeps his end of the deal).
2) Didn't really think of it until I read a lot of speculation online about this. Makes perfect sense, although might be too obvious once you think about it. I'm assuming it is though. The kid takes up way too much screen time for him to just be some random new character in the show.
By the way, I'm starting to think the show's ultimate end is going to involve Nucky, Gillian, and Joel Harper/Tommy Darmody. Probably not as noticeable, but in the flashback Gillian sarcastically calls herself Nellie Bly. A few episodes ago, Nucky received a letter with an address from "Nellie Bly", and we remember Gillian was in the mail room. It sounds like she's been trying to reach Nucky. I know that the feeling was that the ending was going to involved Capone and Luciano/Lansky somehow. Well, Capone's reign is pretty much done now that the FBI has the ledgers. And we know Luciano/Lansky ultimately get out of this alive and in power, but really, the show hasn't been about those two that much. Its been way more about Nucky obviously, and probably right after the whole Darmody family. The real Nucky doesn't die, so it wouldn't surprise me if maybe his way of redemption is taking care of Gillian and Joel/Tommy. Or also, Nucky "Thompson" is technically a fictional character, so who knows? Maybe ultimately Gillian kills him getting back at him for all the shit he put her family through.
