So in re-watching the season finale of Boardwalk Empire I noticed something really strange during the final moments between Nucky and Jimmy …
You can notice when Nucky exits his car, he seems to be wearing a prosthetic hand.
Watch this scene while focusing only on Nucky’s left arm. It’s plasticy and shiny and lifeless!
What the hell is going on?!? WHAT DOES IT MEAN??
I think that it means that Nucky is wearing a gun holster and gun underneath that arm and he’s not comfortable with the feel of it on his body. Which makes so much sense in what happens after this point that it is crazy.
