I think Harrow is going to go into Gillian's establishment and take Tommy out of there and run off with Julia. To do that, he has to kill Gyp's men that are holding down the fort and Gillian, thus the armament.
When he was going to take Tommy out because of what was going on at Gillian's and she kicked him out, that was the final straw for him.
Capone showing up was classic, bad guy to the rescue. But what is he going to want? The booze from the distillery in PA for starters.

Arnold Rothstein plays chess, while everyone else plays checkers.

Damn. So many bodies were dropped in this episode that I thought I was watching Sons of Anarchy.
I wasn't disappointed but thought there would be more suspense or drama to last night's finale. I assumed there would be more surprises, but everything one would assume happened, happened. And the flash forward of the beginning of the episode really took away from the drama of the big battle I thought. Capone comes in, tries to have a fight, shoots a machine gun, and then leaves.
Should be interesting to see what happens next season.
the gentelman mobsters of the early prohabition years to the ruthless blood thirsty mobsters who came after such as Capone. With his aliances and how he handled
the invasion of AC one could say Nuckie made that transition. Rothstein really not so much. Rothstein's "mussle", the men in his organizaiton who were the most ruthless;
he just really disrespected with that narcotics deal. Not a smart move for Arnold.
But I agree with you Rossetti for all his killing was an emotional irrational liability. He was an amateur. Harrow is equally cold, but entirely calculated and intelligent about his work. He's a professional. I loved the way they contrasted the professional killers with the mobsters at this point in their evolution. The ruthless men like Capone and Rossetti were replacing the less cold blooded but equally crooked "mobsters" of the early years. They were not smart though, they depended upon the fear they generated so people wouldn't cross them. Harrow really is the next stage of mobster. That kind of discipline wasn't introduced into organized crime until Murder Inc in the 40's...
I've never dug the Gillian (Gretchen Mol) character. I think she's good, but I didn't love the scenes she was in. Last night she killed it I thought. Even when she was nearly OD'd on the floor. Killed the scene.
I thought it was a strong ending. They have so many options on what to do for season 4.
(1) Harrow's likely killed a lot more people than those two.
(2) Harrow's smarter.
(3) Harrow will kill when money or self interest isn't involved.
(4) Harrow sees himself as working inside of something bigger... moral code perhaps... where Rosetti and Capone are just in it for themselves.
(5) Harrow see's the world as either soldiers who you can kill, or innocents who you don't, where as the other sociopaths don't make any distinction.
(6) Harrow is a guy who seems more predictable, but he's not that's just an illusion. Harrow is just more calculating.
(7) Harrow's self destructive tendencies are more inward focused than outward focused like Capone's and Rosseti.

he can be "sick" and "steady" compared to everybody else. I think we won't agree on this.
Anyway...I agree....she could have OD'd right there and it would have been an good end for her.
Also, after Capone and Chalky lit up those cars and Al says that got "it" out of his system and they both kind of laughed....I loved that. It was like "Yeah.....I get you......for the moment". Michael Kenneth Williams (Chalky/Omar) is $$
i believe the distillery was given to Rothstein by Nucky, which is a setup.
