He then proceeded to prove that even though he usually has other people get their hands dirty on his behalf, he's not above getting into the fray.It was a brutal fistfight that might have ended up with one brother or the other dead, if not for the timely intervention of Margaret and her unloaded shotgun. She didn't know it was unloaded, but luckily neither did Eli.

Now Eli's in a whole different world of trouble should anyone find out that he drunkenly beat George O'Neill to death. Having his deputy help bury the body isn't going to do much to help him out. What this does is create a huge chunk of leverage for someone to use over him. Who's gonna get to it first?Boardwalk Empire season 2 continues to hit its stride with last night’s “Gimcrack and Bunkum,” which sees Eli’s alliance with Jimmy and the Commodore hitting the fan as Richard contemplates his own future out in the woods.  The bizarrely titled “Gimcrack and Bunkum” mostly continues Boardwalk Empire’s pattern of fleshing out its side characters, wisely putting fan favorite Richard Harrow (Jack Huston) at the forefront.

There’s been accusations of Boardwalk Empire unfolding far too quietly and slowly for an HBO gangster series, but explosions and gunshots will fall on deaf ears if not for the quieter, more contemplative episodes that the series does so well.  Last week’s “What Does the Bee Do?” illustrated its point by focusing on smaller characters like Chalky White (Michael K. Williams) and Gillian Darmody (Gretchen Mol) struggling against a ceiling of power, while “Gimcrack and Bunkum” creates a different study through similar means. By focusing on Richard Harrow in his moments alone, “Gimcrack and Bunkum” allows us insight into the role emotional connections play in our power struggles.

Richard lacks the close relationships that define Jimmy Darmody or Nucky Thompson, and as such rather blithely retreats into suicide as his only option. So too do Nucky, Jimmy and Eli face similar absence of fulfillment, but each go about dealing with it in different ways.  Nucky finds himself mostly under the thumb of the Attorney General (Christopher McDonald) and his snide young prosecutor, and has the bridges to burn when Eli humbly returns begging forgiveness for his plot with the Commodore.  Eli himself then lashes out in turn at his fellow conspirator, as violence seems about the only output these powerful and connected men share.

Even Jimmy can’t stand a quick display of disrespect from his elder investors, enlisting Richard to brutally scalp the man in own home for the gesture. Of course, Richard turns to violence out of loyalty for his friend rather than his own insecurity, as Richard’s frustrations put him in the serene woods ready to end his own life peacefully rather than risk harming another.  It’s a fascinating, if understated character study for Richard Harrow, which Jack Huston brings a subtle mastery to, particularly in his final scenes with Jimmy.

There’s another subtle undercurrent to “Gimcrack and Bunkum,” that of the magical and unattainable. We see the theme reprised in the investor’s musings on the Sioux Indians' belief in magic or the hunter’s claims to have seen a flying horse, but there’s a larger play at work.  Each player of Boardwalk Empire believes in an ideal they keep fighting for, even if they’re not sure what that salvation may be. As Angela Darmody puts it, “There’s got to be something.”  And so Richard will live to fight another day, Nucky will weather the impotent frustration of the men handling his court case, and Jimmy will go on believing that bloodshed will win him the respect he deserves, in spite of the ironic place it puts him on Memorial Day.
