** At the time when Boardwalk Empire was made, the show portrayed Nan Britton being President Warren Harding's mistress and the father of her daughter as real for drama since many historians dismiss Britton claims as untrue and impossible that Warren was the father of Britton's daughter. Then in 2015, the show turn out to be correct when a DNA test revealed that Harding and Britton's affair was indeed reality and he did indeed father her child.

** At the time when Boardwalk Empire the series was made, the historians consensus was that UsefulNotes/WarrenHarding had no children, and that his mistress's claiming his paternity of her child was part of her delusion, but the show portrayed Nan Britton being President Warren Harding's mistress and the father of her daughter paternity as real for drama since many historians dismiss Britton claims as untrue and impossible that Warren was the father sake of drama. In 2015, a DNA test found a match between descendants of Britton's daughter. Then in 2015, daughter and members of the Harding family... evidencing that Britton, and the show turn out to be correct when a DNA test revealed that Harding and Britton's affair was indeed reality and he did indeed father her child.by extension, were ''correct.''

** Jimmy Darmody is either one of the most interesting and compelling characters on the show or he's poorly written and dull. Those who find him interesting are divided in turn over if he is an AntiHero or an outright Villain. And then there are the fangirls who [[DracoInLeatherPants drool over him no matter what he does]].
** "Under God's Power She Flourishes" split the fanbase for Gillian; either you think she's a heinous, abusive bitch who ruined her son's life at least twice by exploiting him, or you feel bad for her for continuing the cycle of abuse she herself experienced.Per

* Oddball of the Series: Season 5. It's shortened, doesn't have a central conflict, has Nucky's backstory interspersed, and is essentially just an epilogue for all the main characters.

** Though she's a minor character Rose Van Alden is the most sympathetic person in the show. She desperately wants to have a child, but Nelson will not compromise his principles to help her. Then he does compromise his principles to get drunk and knock up Lucy. Upon discovering this she's incredibly compassionate to an exhausted Lucy even though society at the time would've looked at her (Lucy) as being the villain in that situation. When she bites and and eventually divorces Nelson it's pretty satisfying.

** One with a generous dose of FridgeHorror: could Margaret's son Teddy be a budding [[TheSociopath sociopath]]? Mention is made of his bed-wetting and pyromania, which are both considered key indicators of the condition in children. Furthermore, considering that he's probably mature enough to understand human mortality and the fear that comes with it, it could be seen as quite a KickTheDog moment when he taunts his mother by [[spoiler:pretending that his legs have stopped moving, suggesting that he's caught polio from his sister.]]
