Magic City Week Six: All Is Revealed, Including the Butcher's Penis
|She once got busy in a department store changing room.|
Oh, and remember how Ike sort of killed that guy and put Lily on a bus out of town? Turns out the District Attorney's office finds that a wee bit suspicious. But Ike shouldn't worry; it's not like anyone's going to investigate the matter or anything.
Ike's pushing hard for gambling to become legalized in Miami, as that would stop the income flow for the Butcher, thus giving him more incentive to sell his shares of the Miramar and get out of Ike's grill. As with all political matters on this show, this means wooing a seemingly morally upright senator who is secretly corrupt, racist, and very southern. Yeah, we've seen this plot before. Thank God for this show; it's easily putting every mid-50s southern character actor's children through college. Needless to say, the senator refuses at first, and then says the n-word. Who is this guy, an anonymous YouTube commenter?
This is also a big day for Vera, which means that it is a day that will end in humiliation and heartbreak for Vera. She's throwing a tea party or ladies luncheon or Tupperware sales pitch for Jackie Kennedy and is very excited about it, making sure that all of the flowers are just perfect. Of course, Jackie cancels, leaving Vera distraught and unable to appreciate her new guest, "Ted Kennedy's Wife." Poor Vera. Ike doesn't help when he tries to frame the luncheon as insignificant even though, let's face it, it totally is. But during dinner the boxing champion recognizes her from her days dancing at the Tropicana, and thus all is better.

But we can't talk about nudity in this episode without talking about Danny Huston's penis: you get to see it! Kudos, Danny Huston, for going all in on playing the Butcher as nutty as humanly possible. The Butcher also has gotten the gambling bug, faking out people by making it seem like he's going to bet big on the underdog, just so he can get better odds on the champion. It works! Everyone falls for it!
Even Ike, who also reversed his position on legalized gambling for whatever reason, dips into his slowly disappearing big bag of money to take the sucker bet. Stevie tries to stop his father upon hearing the news after eating out Lilly in a department store changing room, but it's too late. Post-coitus in a changing room is where we like to get bad news too.
Ike ends the episode listening to the fight in the bar, resigned to taking a damaging loss on the fight, totally unaware White Dude: District Attorney dredged up the quarry, finding the car and body of Judi's attempted assassin. We wonder if this will affect the numerous investigations Ike is facing. We'll just have to wait until next week to find out!
