Storyline

The news about Vito's extracurricular activities at a gay bar in New York is spreading quickly. Christopher hears it from an acquaintance at an AA meeting and soon passes it on to the other members of the family. Most are disgusted with him but Tony isn't about to rush to judgment where a man's reputation is at stake. It all seems like it's true when Benny Fazio approaches him and Vito takes off in his car. When Meadow overhears her mother and Rosalie Aprile talking about it, she tells them - and eventually her father - what Finn saw the morning he got to work early. As for Vito, he is in hiding in a small New Hampshire town hoping to track down his cousin who lives somewhere in the state. Vito begins to notice that there are obviously other gay men living in the town. Written by garykmcd

Bring me the head of Vito Spatafore!
27 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The word is out: Vito is definitely gay. Finn confirms this in the series' single funniest scene. "You mean he's catching rather than pitching?" says as astonished Paulie. The boys feel betrayed and clamor for Vito's head. Tony decides otherwise, although he is conflicted. Vito, after all, is his top money dawg. Meanwhile, Vito almost buys the farm as some of Tony's thugs close in on him, but he manages to escape, ending up in a small New Hampshire town. He easily spots some gays in town. Who wouldn't? The episode is proof you can never be sure where this show is headed. This unexpected gay subplot will continue for several episodes, and is not to everyone's tastes, mine included. But I recognize the sheer brilliance of the writing and the actor who plays Vito is a riot.
