While I’m not sure this qualifies as a “teaser,” the newest Boardwalk Empire promo from HBO certainly doesn’t offer us too much in the way of plot development that we couldn’t already assume on our own: Nucky struts down the street like he owns the place because he sorta does, however the mood quickly goes from jovial to abject dread, as he crosses paths with well-wishers and sketchballs alike before meeting the gaze of Ms. Schroeder.
We’re reacquainted with most every player in the story, as most of them lived though the first season, but I get the feeling that not everyone is long for this world. This being a cable drama, everyone has their favorite character, and I gotta say that mine is Chalky White. You take Omar from The Wire and dress him up like Andre 3000. Anyone who doesn’t like that can get the hell out of my country.
HBO takes us back to AC on September 25th. Hopefully the painfully deliberate pacing will pay off out of the gate.
