Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Bobby 'Bacala' Baccalieri (as Steven R. Schirripa)
Dan Grimaldi ...


Johnny Sack is in prison awaiting his trial and trying to run his crime family through Phil Leotardo. Hesh's son-in-law is badly beaten by some of Phil's men who thought he was encroaching on their territory. Hesh demands compensation. One of Tony's good earners, Gene Pontecorvo, inherits $2 million from an old aunt and asks Tony for permission to retire. Tony's obviously cool to the request and says he'll think about. When Syl tells him it can't be done, Gene feels trapped and can see only one way out. Ray Curto dies without anyone knowing that he was an informant for the FBI. Carmela's house project isn't going too well after her father uses sub-grade material and an inspector issue a stop-work order. Uncle Junior's dementia is getting worse and when his nurse has to leave unexpectedly, Tony finds himself as the only one available to sit with him. It's a decision that may prove deadly.

they're back...with a vengeance!!!
20 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Its hard to filter through all the crap we seem to be force fed these days television-wise, although there are some exceptions.

After waiting patiently for two years the show we all know and love is finally back, and with a vengeance I might add.

When we last left Tony trudging through the snow covered back yards of North Caldwell, NJ to the sounds of Van Morrison, we were all left scratching our heads wondering, "What could David Chase possibly have in store for our hero in the seasons to come?" Well, who had any idea that we would be blessed with so many great new one-liners and story lines in just one episode? "Members Only", delivers on so many levels all the way to the closing credits. I don't like ruining anything for late bloomer viewers and absolutely despise those who choose to do so.

But I will say this, if you thought that the magic may have died way back when in the, "Pine Barrens", era then think again. The Sopranos are back on track and after seeing, "Members Only", you'll be hooked all over again.
