Boardwalk Empire: Season 2 Trailer

Almost as cinematic as the show itself, the trailer for the fantastic Boardwalk Empire’s upcoming season certainly expands on the suggestions from the previously-released teaser, as well as the situations that concluded the first season. To avoid spoiling the previous season (as I’m aware many haven’t seen it yet), I would recommend to stop reading from this point onwards.

There’s a clear theme running through the video, in particular the relative isolation and fear now imparted on the series’ lead character, Nucky Thompson, as a result of the aforementioned situations arising in season 1′s finale. One particularly poignant detail is the red rose Nucky wears, which naturally catches the eye and is quite a prominent feature throughout the trailer. There’s plenty of symbolism surrounded red roses, and one in particular comes to mind: the Garden of Eden ‘story’ suggests a white rose turned red as it blushed at Adam and Eve’s fall from grace, with a downward spiral seeming the obvious path for Nucky in season 2. Notice how one or two others seem to be also sporting the roses too, possibly suggesting similar fates for them. Worth a watch for sure, and I’m very excited for the premiere on September 25th.
