After learning of Sheriff Sickles' murder, Nucky rounds up Owen and his men at Mickey's warehouse and orders them to take the back roads to New York City for all of Rothstein's shipments, avoiding Tabor Heights completely. Mickey protests, as the back roads are covered in ice and unpredictable. The crew looks to Owen for approval of the new plan, drawing Nucky's ire. He asks Owen what's being done about Rowland Smith and Owen reminds him that job was left to Manny Horvitz. "Where's he been lately?" Nucky counters, passing the job to Owen. Later, Eli asks Nucky to let him handle the Gyp Rosetti problem, but Nucky refuses: "Allowing you to simply go to jail is the last gift I'll ever give you."
