"Boardwalk Empire" returned for its Season 3 premiere Sunday night and quickly made clear that we are dealing with a darker, more powerful Nucky Thompson this season. A graduate of the "half gangster" school of liquor bootlegging, Nucky's embraced a more violent approach after offing his former protege Jimmy Darmody in last season's finale. Now looking to simplify his operation and become something of a liquor wholesaler, Nucky told a room full of bootleggers that he'd only be selling booze to Arnold Rothstein, and instantly made himself more enemies than he already had.

Atlantic City's tangled web of betrayal, political scheming and murder came full circle in "Boardwalk Empire"s' shocking Season Two finale. After a season of trying to take down Nucky Thompson, Jimmy Darmody finally realized how foolish he'd been to move against his former mentor, but it was too late. Even after Darmody helped make his election fraud charges disappear, Nucky repaid him with two shots to the head, an abrupt end of the line for one of the show's most compelling characters.
