'Boardwalk Empire': Sneak a peek at 'A Dangerous Maid'
Based on these two clips from Sunday's (Oct. 9) episode, 'A Dangerous Maid,' that's not changing anytime soon.
In the first, Nucky ( Steve Buscemi) doesn't take very kindly to an overture from Al Capone ( Stephen Graham) -- not because of anything Capone does, but because it doesn't come from his bosses. In the second, IRA advance man Owen Sleater ( Charlie Cox) offers his services to Nucky. The implication in each case is that Nucky is weakened, not worthy of a visit from the top guys and in need of the protection Owen proposes.
That's not a very pleasant place to be in, and we're very curious to see how Nucky tries to regain the upper hand.
"Boardwalk Empire" airs at 9 p.m. ET Sunday on HBO. Take a look at the clips:
