    you're an idiot.... Al Capone didn't rob the person he's working for... The end of the episode he showed up with all of the whisky in Chicago. When Jimmy handed Nucky the money that's because the people in Chicago paid for it. Hence why Capone showed up with it and the guys were there waiting for him.

    Great way to start that off, calling me an idiot. Let's run you through this first episode again and see if you can keep up, since it sounds like you didn't watch it.

    1. Colosimo, Torrio, Rothstein and Luciano have a meeting with Nucky over needing some booze. Luciano interrupts Torrio and cuts to the chase. Nucky agrees to sell his stash (he just bought for $35k) for $60k to the Chicago cats, but they have to pick it up themselves.

    2. Outside Jimmy is introduced to Capone. Capone makes it known that Colosimo doesnt want in the game, because he's scared of heat from the law. But Capone doesnt agree with that.

    3. The next day, Nucky gets a message that Rothstein has taken the casino for over $90k. Nucky heads down, has a chit-chat with Rothstein and a mad Luciano, and they agree that Nucky only owes him $33k, since he was up $93k at that point, and they leave.

    4. Oh yeah, remember this part? Jimmy met with Capone? At the midget boxing match? Jimmy asks Capone how much he knows about the shipment? Oh right...the conspiracy to steal the liquor...TO GIVE BACK TO ROTHSTEIN/LUCIANO RIGHT?? Makes perfect sense.

    5. Cut to the variety show, in between scenes of the liquor heist and the FBI raiding the funeral home. Oh yeah, there we go again. Capone killing Rothsteins/Lucianos men...just so he can give the liquor right back to them. Jimmy takes a truck, Capone another, with scenes later of Capone riding off to Chicago.

    6. Nucky tries to figure out whats going on. Finds Jimmy later, and is met with an envelope of cash from the liquor share (no comments on what Jimmy did with his truckload).

    7. Colosimo arrives at his restaurant, playing some music. Cut to scenes of Capone coming into Chicago, unloading his shipment to....TORRIO. That's right 'idiot,' not Rothstein/Luciano. And then later we see Colosimo getting shot in the head, for being too much of a puss.



    So you get all that? If you need more time, you can go back and read up some more.

    i'm pretty sure the NY people were buying it. they specifically went over a price together because of a wedding or something like that which was they he needed so much right away, and they settled on 60 grand or some shit as said his guys has to pick it up. then capone and jimmy rob it, capone startles and kills all the NY people picking it up, then he brings it all to chicago.

    Go to the 39 minute mark or so in the download, this is where the sale hapopens.

    No. Nucky and the rest of his crew ARE the NY people. Nucky made the agreement for $35k for the boatload. Later on, Colosimo/Torrio/Rothstein/Luciano come into town (Chicago fellas) and tell Nucky they want to buy 2k crates every month or something. Nucky sells his haul for $60k (that he just made the deal for), but the Chicago duo have to do the pickup.

    Remember, while this isnt a true story series, its based off of true people, it's just kept loose so they can have more creative fun with the series. Capone/Luciano/Rothstein/Colosimo/Torrio are all Chicago gangsters. The crew picking up the haul that night were Rothsteins/Lucianos men. Colosimo didnt want to get involved, so he got killed. Capone did the dirty work, stole the liquor, met Torrio in Chicago with it, and so the story of Capone is started.

    Rothstein/Luciano=NY, Nucky and crew=Atlanta, Colosimo/Torrio=Chicago

    This is what happened:

    1. Nucky gets a shipment from Canada.
    2. Colosimo/Torrio were from Chicago, Rothstein/Luciano from NY, Nucky from Atlanta. Torrio sets up a meeting in Atlanta.
    3. Luciano gets tired of the conversation, tries to speed shit up saying they'll take all they can get up to 2k crates a month for starters.
    4. Luciano goes to piss and his buddy Rothstein says they will take more right now because of a friends wedding, and agrees to buy 500 crates for 60k, but Nucky says his own men will have to pick it up.
    5. They agree, shit goes down, then Jimmy/Capone rob the shipment from the NY guys and Capone takes it to Chicago.

    edit: yeah I think your issue is you thought those 4 guys were all together and from Chicago. Rothstein/Luciano are both NY gangsters, the meeting was setup as a sort of..."lets get our shit organized and make some money for all our families" type thing.

    1. It's Atlantic City, NJ, not Atlanta lol. I just looked the shit up online, I was never aware of its location before (not familiar with East Coast shit) and it's, I dont know, 100 miles south of NYC. I was thinking it was a suburb of NYC. And Wikipedia is showing Luciano/Rothstein were NYC mobsters, so ya, you're right.

    Musta been Torrio/Capone together, killing Colosimo then. I think it was Torrio that got Capone his start in the world.

    And FYI, in doing more research, Boardwalk Empire was picked up on Sept 21st, for a 2nd season already. The premier on the 19th gave HBO their highest ratings since 2004 Deadwood.

    Spartacus got picked up for a second season before the first episode even aired, that's probably because it's the greatest show to ever broadcast in the Universe.

    Wow so many opinions on what is going on. Definitely a sign of a good show. I love the camera work on this show, and the sets are amazing.
    Can't wait to for the story to unfold.

    lol, the only misinformation I've spread was that Rothstein/Luciano were from Chicago (and its NYC). It's not too hard to keep up with that tidbit.

    Ep 2 was pretty decent, but looks like 3 will be awesome. Shits gonna hit the fan!
