‘Boardwalk Empire’ Season 5 (Premiere): “Golden Days for Boys and Girls”

Boardwalk Empire: Season 5


The fifth and final season of Boardwalk Empire begins with an epigraph of sorts, a treacly rhyme from the 1884 pamphlet that gives the premiere episode its title. “Be honest and true boys, whatever you do boys,” a woman’s voice intones. “Let this be your motto for life.” Nucky Thompson has good reason to return to the poem: he first read it in his final days on the straight and narrow path, a path he’s trying to get back on after decades of political corruption and bootlegging. Which is why an observation from the head of Bacardi, though it may not open and close the premiere, is a far better summation of the episode’s major theme: “It’s always wise to have an exit arranged.”
