Hail and farewell

FUNHOUSE is as unique an episode as PINE BARRENS. Tony gets food poisoning, which in one of the series' funniest scenes, he tries to blame on an unnerved but obstinate Artie Bucco. In his delirium, Tony dreams he is on the boardwalk with all his cronies, in a sort of WAITING FOR GODOT tableau. Only Pussy sits motionless, staring out to sea, and later he abruptly vanishes. In a later dream, Tony is looking at fresh-caught fish on ice, when one of them starts talking to him in Pussy's voice. It is a foreshadowing, of course, and Tony finally accepts that Pussy is a traitor. Livia has her last moments as Tony skunks her big-time (we all know Nancy Marchand died right after this). To add to the bizarre situation, Tony imagines mounting a very horny Melfi on her desk -- and he can't wait to tell her. The tragic ending of this episode will haunt the Fat Man for the rest of the series. A classic episode, involving a fateful boat ride, and that hints of Greek and Roman drama, but also of Fellini and even good old Tobe Hooper. A must-see.
