    Why did Richard Harrow lock up when he had Dr. Narcisse in his site?

    Harrow had a conscience, but Narcisse is a piece of shit.

    what am I missing? Why did Harrow fuck up this easy assignment?

    His hand cramped up, and by the time he got back to fire, Chalky's girl stepped in the way. Just a horrible accident. :dontknow:

    I miss Richard already :bigcry:

    He had something to live for, wanted to go straight and go live with the boy and his wife...he had something to lose so he paused. That's my read.

    did he have hand cramps in prior episodes?

    I don't recall him ever having an issue squeezing the trigger prior to the blown Narcisse shot.

    I don't remember any prior problems, it was just a fluke

    Start @ 3 min in if you want to relieve the shot:

    :no:

    Killing Narcisse was payment to Nucky for revealing the whereabouts of Jimmy's body, so he would be able to claim the boy free and clear. Richard's a man of his word & this kill shouldn't have been any different than any of the others he did.

    It wasnt a fluke. The writer wrote him to do it. It's not real life. :hug::hug:
