9. 'Boardwalk Empire': Richard and Julia (Season 3, Episodes 9 and 10)
Romance isn't exactly a word that comes up often during the shoot-'em-up action of Boardwalk Empire, especially when it concerns a cold-blooded killer like Richard Harrow. But despite his proficiency with a gun, all this WWI veteran has ever wanted is a loving family – more than a little difficult, considering he goes through life wearing a tin mask to hide his half-missing face. So when Richard made the acquaintance of Julia Sagorsky, a lonely woman hiding plenty of her own demons, his dream of normalcy became less of a fantasy and more of a reality. Sure, they had the requisite sex on the beach, but the sight of them waking up under the boardwalk paled in comparison to Richard noticing Julia's lipstick on his mask after a night out.
