Season 2[edit | edit source]
Scalercio accepts a contract to kill Nucky Thompson from Jimmy Darmody. Darmody is an associate of Capone and Nucky is the boss of Atlantic City; Jimmy hopes to take over this position by having him killed.
Scalercio takes the train to Atlantic City and Jimmy brings him to Babette's Supper Club where Nucky is attending a promotional appearance by World Heavyweight Boxing Champion Jack Dempsey. As Dempsey entertains the assembly Nucky notices a woman in the crowd. Nucky is distracted by the brunette until he notices Jimmy approaching with his palms up. Nucky glances at Eddie and then asks what Jimmy wants. Jimmy says he wants to tell Nucky something and whispers something to him before walking away with Eddie following. As they wind through the crowd Scalercio emerges with a pistol in hand. Nucky raises his hand and Scalercio fires at him, hitting him in his right palm. Nucky collapses and federal investigator Clifford Lathrop shoots Scalercio from the back of the room, killing him before he can fire again. Nucky survives the shooting.
