‘Boardwalk Empire’ Season 5 Episode 4 Recap: “Cuanto”

Flavorwire

Goddammit, Boardwalk Empire. I was on board with so much of “Cuanto,” an episode that distinguishes itself on several fronts. The flashbacks still aren’t relevant, but this week’s at least cohere into a nice mini-episode about a day in the life of Nucky ‘n’ Eli. Back in the present, the combination of Van Alden/Mueller, Mickey Doyle, and Drunk Margaret makes “Cuanto” straight-up funny in a way that Boardwalk doesn’t get a lot of credit for being when it’s on top of its game. And then the last two minutes give us a one-two punch of tired prestige cable clichés, squandering lots (but not all!) of those warm ‘n’ fuzzy feelings from Nucky and Margaret’s unromantic reunion.
