New ‘Boardwalk Empire’ Previews Show Trouble for Nucky and the Schroeders

Boardwalk EmpireLast week’s Boardwalk Empire left us with some interesting developments for Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) and Maggie Schroeder (Kelly Macdonald). It seemed as though Nucky might finally be getting a little bit of good luck on his side. What with the Attorney General and the prosecutor willing to help out with his case, everything should be smooth sailing. But if that were the case, then this wouldn’t be Boardwalk Empire, now would it?

These clips show Nucky’s associates might not be as entirely devoted to him as he may have thought. In fact, the only thing they really do care about is money.

Meanwhile, Maggie is concerned with raising good children…but how can she set an example when she and her kids live in the home of a known criminal? Maggie takes her son Teddy to speak with a stern priest who doesn’t think too highly of her parenting.

Finally, watch the preview for the episode to see the show’s trademark balance between the mystifying showmanship of Atlantic City and its dark, haunting underworld of ruthless crime.

Boardwalk Empire airs Sunday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HBO.
