The buck stops here -- at least as far as going beyond a divorce is concerned.

After five seasons, Boardwalk Empire came to an end on Sunday night.
The critically acclaimed HBO original series garnered an astounding 40 Emmy nominations in its first four seasons, and we're sure the final year will only add to that number…
…especially with an ending like Eldorado.
The series finale was as beautiful and definitive as they come.
Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) was confronted by young Joe Harper, who revealed himself to be Tommy Darmody.
Nucky had previously murdered Tommy's father Jimmy Darmody and decades earlier sold his grandmother Gillian Darmody to the pedophile Commodore.
And that's why Jimmy got his revenge, shooting Nucky three times:
As he died, Nucky had a vision of himself as a young boy diving deep into the water for a coin, as we saw in the season's opening scene.
Dr. Valentine Narcisse (Hunger Games star Jeffrey Wright) was also killed, this time by Lucky Luciano's men.
Al Capone (Stephen Graham), just as he did in real life, survived but turned himself in to police after they charged him with tax evasion.
We guess that's just the price you pay for landing on Boardwalk.
