* Played with in the finale of ''Series/{{BoardwalkEmpire}}'': Nucky strips off all his clothes and swims far out into the ocean at first light, ducking under the water in the final shot. It's left ambiguous whether this is a flash-forward to his death or simply a recreational swim. Later on, he tells Eli he'd been for a swim out of nostalgia, as he used to do it as a kid. He had considered swimming out too far, but decided to return instead.

** It was not Clark who saved her but some guy hunting meteor freaks that shot her attacker dead before he could drown her. Clark would have been too late.
