Tony must deal with Uncle Junior over Chris and his friend Brendan's hijacking of trucks under Junior's protection. At the same time, Tony has to cope with his increasingly senile mother, who sets her house on fire and runs over a neighbor. His confrontation with her over where to send her is priceless. Tony hires a nanny for his mother, who turns out to be Jamaican. When he first meets her, he tells her to lay off the ganja while working for his mom. Lovely. AJ's teacher has his car stolen, so Tony sends the boys out to retrieve it. And so on and so on. Maybe a little too much going on but we start to get a feel for some of the secondary characters, like Sil who has a memorable "Godfather" moment in front of a mirror. Chris makes it plain he is going to be hard to control. A near-great episode, but way too busy
