Storyline

Paulie's out of jail and his friend's throw him a party at the Bada Bing. He's still not very happy about he's been treated both before and after he went to jail and the fact that Tony did little while he was there. He turns to Johnny Sack who lends a sympathetic ear. Adriana, still under pressure from the FBI to provide more information, learns from a TV show that a wife can't be forced to testify against her husband. Christopher's not having anything to do with it, especially after she tells him she may not be able to have kids. He relents but not before Adriana learns that she could be called to testify after all. Carmela's cousin, financial analyst Brian, tells Tony of a way to scam the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Carmela's feelings for Furio may be mutual but he starts to avoid her. Assemblyman Zellman tells Tony he's seeing his old girlfriend Irina. Tony seems to take it okay but he's obviously irritated. It's all too much for him in the end. Written by garykmcd

Michael Imperioli take a bow
29 March 2020 | by familymikejSee all my reviews

This episode is great all around. But Christopher is exceptionally portrayed. The damaged goods conversation, was was so short, sharp and harsh, that it had maximum impact.
