The fifth season opens with a shot of the neglected backyard of the Sopranos home. It’s quite obvious that Tony and Carmela are still separated, but they seem to be getting along most of the time. However Carm does throw in his face that she’s aware he’s made threats agains Furio’s life.

Meanwhile, Janice and Bobby have gotten married, and Janice is attempting to revive the Sunday night dinner tradition. While Tony and Bobby watch TV it’s revealed why there are so many new characters this season. A bunch of mobsters have completed their sentences and are about to be released from prison.

The surly AJ playing his new $5,000 drum kit is nicely contrasted with him weeping and calling “Mommy” when he encounters a bear in the yard. Tony worries about them being alone in this situation and has Benny and the scaredy-cat Little Paulie take shifts at the house, armed with an AK-47.

There’s still a lot of tension between Christopher and Paulie, and some of it comes out during a rehashing of the escapade with the Russian. Chris resents being the low-man who always has to pick up the dinner check and sticks Paulie with the bill one night. Paulie retaliates by telling Tony about it and encouraging everyone to order lots of extras at the next dinner. Chris can barely cover the hefty tab and the foolhardy waiter calls him on the $16 tip in the restaurant parking lot. Next thing you know Chris pops him in the skull with a brick and Paulie finishes him off with a shot to the chest. After this the tow decide to “bury the hatchet” and split the tabs in the future.

Feech is one of the first to be released from prison, but Tony seems most excited about getting to see his cousin Tony Blundetto again after 20 years. Carmine has a stroke and ends up on a respirator, and Johhny Sac takes this opportunity to remind Tony that he’s disappointed their “deal” to take Carmine out wasn’t completed.

Tony is still dating Valentina and ends up watching “The Prince Of Tides.” Seeing how it mirrors his own experiences in therapy, he decides to court Dr. Melfi. She rejects him but secretly fantasizes about them being together. He explodes with rage at the rejection, and ends up back at the house with Carmela where he does one of the things he is good at… protecting what is his by claiming the nightly bear-watch shift.
