Luciano and Lansky are still coming into their own and Capone hasn't reached his potential...but Rosetti, the guy is on fire.
I just saw a can of 3-in-One today... probably will associate it with that beatdown forever now. He's a mental midget who doesn't like to be reminded of that fact, so he responds by beating people down. That was a Sopranos moment.
Gillian becoming a madam was so obvious, so right.
Cleopatra/Billie... super cute and perfect casting for a libertine flapper/fag hag.
One of the things I love about this show are the little historical touches, like Nelson repeating the Émile Coué mantra. Love when they include things like this (like Eli reading the Dale Carnegie book with the historically correct spelling of Carnagey).
Is Nelson on track to be the Walter White of the show? ... except instead of Mr. Chips to Scarface it'll be Joe Friday to Scarface.
And to take it back in time...

I agree, I was not a fan of Pitt since the pilot. He always seemed like such a dimwit... the Princeton backstory never seemed believable to me.
