A series of flashbacks dramatizes Jimmy's meeting Angela at Princeton and explains his dropping out to fight the Kaiser. Mickey hopes to inveigle Van Alden into a raid, Margaret's new-found sense of sin and God's retribution gets a rise out of Nucky, and Jimmy's mother finds new ways to be destructive.
Did You Know?
In the flashback to Jimmy's college lecture, he reads from John Webster's The White Devil. He reads a quote by Flamineo, an ambitious young man who helps his adulterous sister murder her husband. There are many parallels between The White Devil and the series: Flamineo is attending university to better himself. Everyone is corrupt and trying to grab power. The kingpin has his lover's husband killed and is put on trial. Flamineo's mother hates the woman he is seeing. See more
