I think that Enoch is supposed to be a character who is, for lack of a better word, a pansy.
Remember at the end when Jimmy (i think thats his name, the WWI vet) says, "You can't be half gangster. Not anymore." I think that was a tell-tale sign that Enoch is trying to not be a gangster, and maybe he will have a hard time deciding whether he will stay half-legit or go in all the way.
Sorry if I didn't make any sense there, I'm pretty tired.
That's a fair point.
It just seems from the commercials that he's supposed to be a bit of a badass.
Rothstein is asking him over the phone if 'this is how you do business' and he yells back at him "if you want to see how we do business, show your ass in Atlantic City again" or something equally bravado-ey.
If they're trying to sell him as a pushover, a pissing match with Rothstein isn't the way to go about it. Nor was "then stop listening to the grown-ups conversations" crack on Lucciano.
I see them actually trying to send him down a darker road and I just don't think he has those chops. And what fun would a pansy primary character be anyway?
We shall see.
