Nucky and Margaret tentatively reconcile in order to deal with Mrs. Rothstein's threats. Luciano visits Chicago and tries to bring Al Capone into the Sicilian-only business plan and fails, but while there recognizes Van Alden as the prohibition agent from 10 years prior in New Jersey. After Luciano leaves, Van Alden pleads for his life after Capone sticks a gun in his mouth. Capone ultimately spares him after Van Alden makes a compelling speech, which shrewdly appeals to his ego while making insinuations about Luciano's lack of respect. Joseph Kennedy backs out of the potential rum deal with Nucky, citing "scotch and rum don't really mix." Sally is stopped by a Cuban federal patrol, and tries to get out of the trouble she senses by flirting, dropping important names, and bribery, but these tactics only serve to aggravate the situation. After a brief struggle, Sally manages to grab away a soldier's gun and starts to back away into the darkness slowly, but is accidentally shot and killed by one of the soldiers in mid-sentence.
