Get schooled on the HBO series' most treacherous moments before the Season Three premiere on September 16th

Gillian Tips Off Gyp Rosetti to Nucky's Dinner at Babette's (Season Three, Episode Eight)

HBO

Once Gillian acknowledged her son's death, her anger was at full throttle. An early scene in this episode established that Gillian knew all along that Nucky was responsible for Jimmy's murder, so it's almost organic the way she casually mentioned to Gyp Rosetti – Nucky's latest rival – where her son's killer would be dining one evening. The result of this disclosure is one of the most deadly incidents in Boardwalk's three seasons: a Michael Bay-caliber explosion at Babette's Supper Club claimed the life of Nucky's flapper mistress, Billie Kent, which galvanized the Atlantic City gangster to launch an all-out war against Gyp and his high-powered Sicilian backer, Joe Masseria.
