Question...how/why did Eli take it upon himself to hook up with Al Capone in the first place? Also why did Capone/Chalky take out Masseria's men?
Someone mentioned it above, but the line at the end of the 2nd to last episode was awesome.
"We been on the road for 18 hours. I need a bath, some chow, then you and me sit down and talk about who dies."
I agree. "Lucky" Luciano will become a much bigger player in some way next season. I don't know how, but he will. And we will probably find out how he gets the name "Lucky".
Maybe there is more to it, but Eli hooked up with Al Capone out of necessity. Just like Mickey Doyle took it upon himself to call Rothstein.
They took out Masseria's men because they could. They killed three birds with one stone that day. They weakened Masseria and sent him a messasge too.
One of the best closing lines ever......
