Music In This Episode: Visit HBO’s Official Site
Episode Notes: One of the songs used in this episode is The Gravel Pit‘s ” Thought Powered Cloud” from their 1996 album The Gravel Pit Manifesto. I met Jedediah Parish and the rest of the Gravel Pit fellas several years ago when they were in Vegas playing at The Boston Bar and Grill.

There’s a big power play going on with Johhny Sack and Little Carmine because they both want to be in charge of New York, however Carmine didn’t name a successor before his passing. When Lorraine Calluzzo fails to kick up to Johnny, Phil Leotardo is sent to Brooklyn to send her a message. Thanksfully for her a phonebook blocked the bullet… this time. When Tony suggests a three-way power sharing structure to Johnny which includes the retired
Angelo Garepe Johnny blows his top, and Chris manages to make matters even worse when they meet again regarding this unresolved issue.

It is revealed that the two Tonys were close like brothers and Tony Soprano could just have easily been the one who ended up in prison, so The Boss is experiencing some guilt about this. It doesn’t help matters that Feech is still working to undermine Tony’s authority, not to mention taking Tony B. around with him while seeming oblivious to the fact that they are both on parole and Tony B. really does want to remain a civilian. When Feech beats the crap out of landscaper Sal Vitro in broad daylight it sparks a war with Paulie whose Aunt Mary lives in the neighborhood. Even after a bunch of people incur medical bills, Paulie and Feech still can’t come to terms so Tony forces them to reach a compromise; the new La Manna business gets half the neighborhood and after 26 years poor Sal is fortunate enough to get to keep the other half, while kicking up to Paulie and mowing Johnny Sack’s lawn for free.

Bobby also comes to Tony with a problem. He’s spent a year taking care of Uncle Junior and now that he’s six months into his marriage to Janice he needs to earn more. Gee, think she pressured him into this, so she can continue to sit on the couch watching infomercials all day? She may be suffering from “depression” but she’s still as manipulative as ever and has decided she can now relate to her own mother with regards to ungrateful husbands and selfish children.

Uncle Junior’s confusion grows and he thinks he sees himself and Bobby on TV while watching an episode of “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” He also insults Tony at the family dinner by repeatedly stating, “He never had the makings of a varsity athlete.” Tony storms out and when Bobby has to tell him that Uncle Jun took his car and disappeared in his slippers after saying he “wanted to see Johnny” he doesn’t care anymore. Janice can barely drag her ass off the couch, let along help in the search which leaves Bobby quite exasperated and things culminate with Tony and Janice shouting and brawling. The Newark police finally bring Junior back home and the doctor says his behavior is due to several small strokes he’s recently experienced. Tony finally goes to talk to him and asks, “Don’t you love me?” Junior silently sheds some tears but does the addled old man love Tony or is he just crying due to the prairie dog and coyote special he was watching on TV?

Long after his attempted suicide, Artie and Tony finally make amends, and he accepts Tony’s invitation to move into Livia’s old house so he doesn’t have to stay at the Motel 6.

Adriana explains the much-asked-about relationship between Tony and Christopher to Robyn; they are technically cousins, but Tony often calls him his nephew.
