Blood is shed in the power struggle between Johnny Sack and Carmine Lupertazzi Jr. when one of Carmine's loan sharks doesn't pay Johnny instead of Carmine. Feetch La Matta gets Tony's okay to take over Uncle Junior's lucrative high stakes poker game. When one of the game's regulars, Dr. Ira Fried, finds the the guests at his daughter's wedding have had their expensive foreign cars stolen, he turns to Tony for help. Tony's pretty upset when he finds out who was behind it and makes sure it doesn't happen again. AJ's grades are dropping and a visit to his school guidance counselor, Robert Wegler, doesn't give much hope for college unless his grades improve. Carmela feels she's being undermined by Tony who is always buying the boy gifts and after AJ disobeys her yet again, she lets him move in with Tony. She also gets a call from Wegler who asks her out for lunch. Tony meanwhile is still trying to woo Dr. Melfi. Written by
