"There's been a lot of sexual tension, really, in the air with Owen (played by Charlie Cox) and that's why she can't stand being around him," says Kelly of her character, Margaret Schroeder. "It's too dangerous. She knows her flaws." 

The winner of eight 2011 Emmy Awards and the 2011 Golden Globe for Best Drama Series, season two of Boardwalk Empire finds Nucky (Steve Buscemi) successfully rigging an election and getting a crony elected mayor of Atlantic City. But the celebration is short-lived when he is arrested for election fraud and members of his own inner circle conspire against him, leading to some deadly consequences.
