There have been a few missteps during season three of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire (do we really need to see so much of Margaret’s involvement with a hospital wing? No.), but for the most part it’s fulfilling its promises of more war between rival factions. And with the just-released info on the November 2012 episodes, it appears Boardwalk Empire‘s body count will be climbing as Gyp (played by Bobby Cannavale) continues his assault on Nucky’s liquor business.
