Boardwalk Empire Finale: Ready, Set, React!
How very bait-and-switchy of you, Boardwalk Empire.
Much of the HBO drama’s fourth season — Sunday’s finale included — seemed to be building to one inevitable conclusion: the death of Eli at the hands of brother Nucky.
But in a twist that ranks among this show’s most heartbreaking, it was beloved sharpshooter Richard Harrow who perished — a victim, ironically, of gun violence.
A full post mortem with series creator Terence Winter — in which he reveals why Richard had to go and teases who will and won’t be returning for Season 5 — can be found here.
