Jimmy Reneges on His Deal With Manny Horvitz (Season Two, Episode 10)

Macall B. Polay

It's always a good idea to settle your debts upfront – especially when you're in business with a menacing butcher who's handy with not just a knife, but a gun as well. Between Jimmy's inability to deliver a shipment of alcohol (courtesy of a distillery bombing made possible by Owen Sleater) that Horvitz already paid for and Horvitz mistakenly believing that Jimmy put a hit on him, the Philly meat vendor is ready to take out the Atlantic City "boychick" by the end of episode 10. But the one who pays for Jimmy's shady and sloppy business is his wife, Angela. Horvitz, arriving at the Darmodys' home intent on killing Jimmy – who's heading toward Princeton to unload George Remus' medicinal liquor – settles instead for Angela and her lover, the beach-matron-flouting Louise.
