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 garykmcd

Did You Know?


Because the camera deliberately cut away before Sil shoots Adriana to death, many fans speculated that he had let her live after all. But both Drea de Matteo and David Chase got wind of these theories and stated publicly that Adriana had been murdered; Chase added that the show would not "toy with" audiences in that way.

In the scene, when Adriana has her daydream (escaping on the interstate) and looks at her red valise, laid on the passenger seat, while driving, the automatic transmission gear shift can clearly be seen on the "parking" position (upper top). See more »

Tony: Big on the outside, Small on the inside
9 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode shows how weak Tony Soprano really is as he fails to react when he is personally attacked. Right from the beginning of his position as boss, I thought he mostly had the strong,hard, boss personality because he beat up, killed people and raised his voice a lot and such. But this episode really opened my eyes, it showed two instances when Tony was deliberately stepped on, most especially by Phil, a character who just appeared on the scene this season and was mouthing off and insulting Tony and and anyone who bare his last name in front of his people and John. What makes this even worse is John also sides Phil and talks about killing members of Tonys family. I mean this is Tony's wife we are talking about and Anthony Juniour and Meadow, but Tony just sat there like a baby.

The second instance was at the end when he talks to John about the situation with Tony B. John to me is outright disrespectful and hard towards Tony, despite the fact that they have been through much together. It truly shows how in instant your friends do change and I'm sure Tony was severely hurt. The instance with John could have been because John was now a boss and he had to take this position seriously. But c'mon friendship goes deeper than that. John probably knew Tony was weak all along to be a boss, and to me John's character is truly amazing, especially with the way he looked Tony in the eyes and spoke.

Very good episode. With Adriana I did not see that one coming. The director fooled me completely when she was in the 'T-bird' driving on the highway with her luggage beside her.

You have to see this episode to believe it.

I do not respect Tony anymore, he is just like an armed robber with a gun, take the gun away and he goes running.
