Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die: because she has worked folly in Israel, to play the whore in her father's house: so shall you put evil away from among you. Deuteronomy ,24 If a man be found lying with a woman married to an husband, then they shall both of them die, both the man that lay with the woman, and the woman: so shalt thou put away evil from Israel…. Deuteronomy And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die; because he hath sought to thrust thee away from the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. Deuteronomy Then shalt thou bring forth that man or that woman, which have committed that wicked thing, unto thy gates, even that man or that woman, and shalt stone them with stones, till they die.
The Worst Acts of Betrayal on 'Boardwalk Empire' - Rolling Stone
If there was a drinking game based on the number of times the gangsters, molls and even law-enforcement officials betray one another on Boardwalk Empire, all the players would be drunk within the first 10 minutes. But it's the duplicity that keeps us coming back, and the past three seasons have provided a satisfying batch of deceit and intrigue out of Roaring Twenties Atlantic City. The vicious cycle of betrayal in the Boardwalk Empire universe began years before January , when the pilot takes place. Sometime in the early s, Nucky was merely the sheriff of Atlantic County, and his mentor, Commodore Louis Kaestner, was in charge. The two were caught rigging an election, but only the Commodore went to jail — with the understanding that he would resume his role as Atlantic City boss upon his release. Nucky, unwilling to give up the power and wealth his new position provided, went back on his word, leaving a bitter Commodore poised to stage a coup of his own in early , at the start of the second season. To cheat on your girlfriend hours after she drops the bombshell that you knocked her up is one thing, but to do it with your own mother is sinking to new lows that would make even the most dangerous gangster cringe.
