“You expect me to start a war in New York where things actually matter?” Arnold Rothstein (Michael Stuhlbarg) said in the trailer below.
The drama will heat up in season 3. According to an interview with Huff Post TV, creator Terence Winter said, “We’re moving into 1923 when the Twenties really became the ‘Roaring Twenties.’ The economy began to boom and this became the Flapper Era. The parallels between then and now are obvious because that period mirrors the world we live in today. Prohibition, for instance, is the model for the illegal drug business; it’s what made millionaires out of gangsters. People were buying political favors, and big business controlled everything.”
