"Boardwalk Empire" will be taking its final journey along the coast of New Jersey this fall, and it's going to bring some big changes with it. The last season of the period drama will apparently jump the timeline forward to the early '30s, just as prohibition is about to end. And it's going to be intense.

Boardwalk Empire, Season 4, Farewell Daddy
“The trick is to stay alive long enough to cash out.” Said by Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi), you can bet that sentiment’s going to drive the final season of HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire” to its conclusion. Well, that and the inevitable tag line “all empires fall.” Yep, it’s all coming to an end and it’s likely not going to be pretty. But when is the right time to “cash out” and will that be the undoing of all these greedy and money-obsessed kingpins? As showrunner and creator Terence Winter (“The Wolf Of Wall Street” screenwriter) told us last year, “That’s a big theme of the show, the whole idea of when is enough, enough?”

When we spoke to "Boardwalk Empire" showrunner and head writer Terence Winter last year, the series creator was hoping to change the paradigm of his HBO show. Season four concluded much more adrift than previous seasons, with the fates of several characters up in the air. It wasn't exactly a cliffhanger per se, but very open-ended as to what would happen.

Boardwalk Empire Steve Buscemi
With writers and producers planning the fifth and final season of "Boardwalk Empire," perhaps now is as good a time as any to look back on the prohibition-era gangster drama. And that's just what happened last night in at The Greene Space at WNYC and WQXR in New York City. Steve Buscemi and "The Sopranos" creator David Chase sat down for a conversation lasting over an hour about antiheroes, and the talk touched upon one of the more shocking season finales in "Boardwalk Empire" thus far.

Boardwalk Empire, Season 4, Farewell Daddy
Was he playing it close to the vest, did slow ratings just catch up with the show, or did creative discussions yield a different approach? I interviewed “Boardwalk Empire” creator/head writer Terence Winter at the end of the fourth season late last year, and when I asked him if there was an end in sight for the show, he was fairly adamant that there were no plans to conclude the drama any time soon.

Boardwalk Empire, Season 4, Farewell Daddy
Late last week, before the season four finale of "Boardwalk Empire," The Playlist had the chance to talk to the HBO mob drama's creator, show runner and head writer Terrence Winter. At this point, we're hoping you saw last night's season finale (recap here), a wrenching episode that saw the death of a fan favorite character (spoilers from here on in, ok?).

Boardwalk Empire, Season 4, Farewell Daddy
“After today I’m not making plans,” Atlantic City kingpin Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) says on the phone. If only he really knew how true that might be. He’s evidently retiring and telling his Florida business partner and occasional lover Sally Wheat (Patricia Arquette) that after he wraps up loose ends he’s moving down South to Cuba, taking her with him. It’s understandable—the New Jersey mobster’s become hip to the fact that something fishy is going on with his brother Eli (Shea Whigham) and that it probably involves a maybe-not-so-crooked FBI Agent Knox (Brian Geraghty), which can’t be any good.

The fourth season of HBO’s mob drama “Boardwalk Empire” ends this Sunday. It’s an engrossing conclusion that brings heartbreak, tragedy and left-turn surprises you probably wouldn’t have expected. You’ll have to tune in Sunday night for more, but trust us when we say the underrated show is doing some of its best work this season and it’s must-watch TV in general, with one of the best casts on television right now (Steve Buscemi, Michael Shannon, Jeffrey Wright, Michael K. Williams, Kelly McDonald, Shea Whigham, Michael Stuhlbarg and many, many more).
