Tony is interviewed by the FBI who play him a recording from a wiretap in Livia's room at her elder care residence. It confirms that Junior was behind the hit. He plays it cool however, not only refusing to accept the offer of immunity from the Feds but not letting on to Uncle Junior what he knows. Junior does give him the okay to eliminate the rat who's been wearing a wire but Tony starts to get his revenge as well. Tony takes a major step when he decides to tell his crew about seeing a psychiatrist. At home, Carmella has it out with Father Phil, who is flirting with Rosalie Aprile much the same way he does with her. Livia meanwhile - who may or may not be suffering from Alzheimer's - tells Artie Bucco that it was Tony who burned down his restaurant. Written by
