Tony sends Christopher and his cousin Tony BLundetto upstate to his uncle Pat's farm. There are several bodies buried there that now have to be relocated since the farm has been sold to a housing developer. Christopher resents Tony B.'s rapid rise and the fact that he is now the boss' favorite. Tony B. has a lot of stories and Chris reassesses his opinion of him. Things are heating up between Johnny Sack and Tony Soprano. A shipment of Vespa scooters that one of Tony's crews was going to hijack off the New Jersey docks vanishes and he later learns Johnny's men simply took it. Johnny suspects Tony Blundetto of shooting Joe Peeps despite Tony's assurances to the contrary. As if he doesn't have enough on his plate, Tony has to deal with his sister Janice who's violent temper landed her on the evening news after she lost her temper and attacked another mom at her step-daughter's soccer game.

Most of the events takes place during a few summer days in upstate New York. Yet when Tony leaves Janice's house just a few days later it looks like October in New Jersey with leaves changing colors and people in jackets. See more »

Burying our sins
17 May 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Simlarly to the previous entry of the season, Unidentified Black Males, Cold Cuts is quite controlled regarding the violent shock factor, preferring to focus on character development while preparing for the emotional roller-coaster that's about to come.

It starts with Johnny Sack stealing from Tony and then accusing him of protecting the murderous Tony B. (true, but still). In an attempt to take his mind off the stress, the boss sends his cousin and Christopher to dig up a few bodies which need to be transferred if they want to avoid jail time. Also going through a stressful situation is Janice, whom Bobby threatens with divorce unless she takes care of her foul attitude, a fact Tony can't resist mocking when he has dinner with them.

The whole point of Cold Cuts is showcasing the complexity of the bonds that form between certain characters: the main attraction is of course Tony's dealings with Janice, which have consistently been contradictory to say the least, and Aida Turturro pulls off a wonderful job keeping the darker sides of the role under control; but it's the scenes shared by Imperioli and Buscemi that have that little extra something, partly because of the great chemistry between the two actors, partly because their story arc "resurrects" a plot element from the very first season

  • remember Emil Kolar, the guy Chris killed in the pilot episode and


then relocated in Episode 8? Well, it's a case of "same sh*t, different day", apparently.
