Tony realizes that the only way to prevent a war between his and Johnny Sack's family is to eliminate his favorite cousin, Tony Blundetto. He knows that Phil Leotardo will no doubt kill Tony B. very slowly and so Tony offers to do it himself. Johnny says there's no way anyone but Phil gets to kill him. If Tony doesn't do so quickly, a member of Tony's family will be killed and not surprisingly, Christopher interprets that he would be that victim and goes into hiding. Adriana meanwhile is still in the clutches of the FBI and this time they get very serious after she is filmed disposing evidence of a crime. She admits that Matoush the drug dealer killed someone in her office and she cleaned up after the fact even though the killing had nothing to do with her. They tell her that unless she can get Christopher to flip, she will be arrested and charged. She tells Chris what's happened and he tells her their both dead and have no way out of the predicament she's put them in. Written by
