Storyline

Things are not going well in the garbage wars and Tony decides to put one of his own men in charge Richie Aprile' old crew, ousting Ralphie Cifaretto who has been in charge temporarily. At least part of the reason he replaces him is that he let Jackie Aprile Jr. help him beat up a client when trying to collect a debt. Dr. Melfi meanwhile is brutally attacked and raped in the stairwell of her office building. When the police are forced to release the suspect due to procedural errors on their part, she is outraged and seriously considers asking Tony for his help. As Tony had warned her, Janice learns there is a price to pay for refusing to return Svetlana's stolen leg. Written by garykmcd

Plenty to take in

While all sorts of odds and ends occur, such as Johnny Sack buying a home in Jersey, the focus is on Dr. Melfi, who is brutally attacked and raped in the stairwell of her office building. Her one consolation is that her attacker is quickly caught. But shortly after, she learns he is free on a technicality. Should she tell Tony about the attack? Her attacker works at the local fast food joint, and is even employee of the month. Bracco is magnificent in this episode, which is rightfully all hers. While the episode is harrowing and dark, there is room for a little humor, in the form of a series of Ginny Sack fat jokes as told in the back room by the boys. As one punch line is being dropped, Johnny Sack abruptly enters, and wonders who the boys are talking about. Priceless. She so fat, she live in two zip codes.
