So I don't think I've seen five or so minutes of television that has stuck with me quite as much as the last minutes of James Darmody's on-screen life. I honestly didn't think Nucky would pull the trigger. And even when he did, I thought there was a chance it could be a ruse. So much for that...

The entire Darmody arch - from pushing to be a "real gangster" to over reaching his grasp to losing nearly everything and ultimately accepting his fate - was just really well done.

If I have one complaint going forward to Season 3, this show is really lacking a solid protagonist. It's hard to now root for Nucky. Margaret is almost as conniving. Eli is just a weasel. And you can't root for the feds. There really needs to be a character for whom to cheer, and, for the most part, Darmody was that character. I think I'd like to see them fast forward a few years, and maybe have Darmody's son come of age (so very Red Dead Redemption) - perhaps with the Richard Harrow character as a mentor and accomplice. Though by then, Prohibition would nearly be over, so...

Anyway, I thought this was an outstanding season.

I think Nucky remains the protagonist, Al Swearengen style. But Harrow could be GREAT if they push him to the foreground of the series.

My favorite characters are always the Rothstein/Luciano combo, and Lansky was a welcome addition to the crew this season.

The Big Bossman raised the briefcase.

Go Pack Go! (13-0, 1st NFC North)
Let's Go Riders! (5-13. At least we got the #1 pick; can we draft Andrew Luck?)

Eh at this point it's safe to say dialidol is worthless now. Last season it was actually decently accurate almost every week. This season it's so far off it's just pointless to look at.
