September 8 2013
Following his battle with Gyp Rosetti, Nucky makes a peace offering to Joe Masseria ( Ivo Nandi) while working the odds with Arnold Rothstein. While Chalky is busy running the Onyx Club on the Boardwalk, the impulsive Dunn Purnsley ( Erik LaRay Harvey) clashes with a booking agent. Fresh-faced Federal Agent Warren Knox arrives in Atlantic City to learn the ropes from Agent Sawicki ( Joseph Aniska). Gillian seeks custody of her grandson, Tommy ( Brady and Connor Noon), while trying to find a “good” man to keep the Artemis Club afloat. Eli’s college-age son, Willie ( Ben Rosenfield), turns to Nucky for career advice. Al Capone enlists his brothers, Frank and Ralph, to help him expand his business in the Chicago suburb of Cicero. Richard Harrow returns to his violent ways.

Richard Harrow finds that coming home has caused him to lose his stomach for violence.
" Acres of Diamonds"
September 22 2013
Nucky Thompson is disappointed with the business opportunity Bill McCoy offers him in Florida - the land is surrounded by new development bringing too much risk and McCoy only pitched the deal to clear a debt. Nucky bonds with speak-easy owner Sally Wheet and reconsiders his refusal. The change of heart comes too late for McCoy, who has already killed his irate creditor in self defence. Willie Thompson uses his experience of bootlegging to secure booze for a college party. Doctor Valentin Narcisse installs new entertainments in the Onyx Club; jazz singer Daughter Maitland and heroin supplied by Arnold Rothstein. He recruits Dunn Purnsley as his distributor, capitalising on Chalky White's ire. Gillian Darmody's drug use continues while she poses as the wife of Roy Phillips. Richard Harrow's life of violence follows him to his family home, causing a rift with his sister.
" All In"
September 29 2013
Jake Guzik suffers a heart attack in Chicago and Al and Frank Capone decide to take over his collections for old times sake. They drag George Mueller along and solidify his loyalty against Dean O'Banion after involving him in a truck heist and murder. Nucky Thompson offers to partner with Arnold Rothstein in the Florida deal but is put off by Rothstein's obsession with winning at the poker table. He finds an unexpected replacement in Meyer Lansky. Dunn Purnsley ingratiates himself with Valentin Narcisse. Willie Thompson plots revenge against the classmate who embarassed him but his poisoning plan goes too far and the boy is killed. Eddie Kessler enjoys his newfound responsibilities and celebrates with a night out in the company of Ralph "Bottles" Capone before being arrested by Bureau of Investigation Agent Warren Knox.
