Storyline

Rebecca has been chosen as one of six Boston businesswomen to get a makeover for Redbook magazine. She's excited by it, but ultimately goes a little overboard with the makeover itself. Meanwhile, Sam has found out that Gary of Gary's Olde Towne Tavern has sold his bar. Sam wants to start a new rivalry with the new owner of Gary's, a guy by the name of Frank Carpaccio, especially since they won't have any history of Cheers' underdog status in the bar wars. Woody, Carla, Norm and Cliff go along with Sam on the continued rivalry. When Carpaccio's retaliatory prank seems to be more than just a prank, Sam learns that Frank Carpaccio is a mob boss, whose nickname is the Angel of Death. Because of Carpaccio's evilness, the police will not provide Sam and Cheers any protection. Sam believes that Gary is still pulling a prank, he wanting to see the Cheers gang humiliated by pandering to a supposed mob boss. So Sam, Woody, Carla, Norm and Cliff go down to Gary's to meet with Carpaccio, who ends... Written by Huggo

Bar Wars VI: This Time It's for Real (#10.23)
27 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Gary sold his bar. Sam wants to start a rivalry with the new owner as well and they pull a prank. The response is Cheers door being blown up. Turns out the guy is from the mafia and even police in town is scared of him. Sam isn't sure that Gary isn't behind it and goes with another prank, but then FBI comes and lots of them are very scare and leave the bar. Only turns out it was Sam behind it all as revenge for Halloween.

A great bar wars episode. Even though it is without Gary,they went a pretty original and hilarious way. I really wasn't sure how it will end and I found the twist at the end absolutely hilarious. Including the fact that Woody couldn't get it and Norm was trying to explain it to him!
