Storyline

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.

Quotes

Tony Soprano: I stopped at a light yesterday and I see this nanny, black girl, pushin' a baby carriage. Comin' the other way, was another one with this old lady in a wheelchair starin' off into space.
Dr. Jennifer Melfi: The circle of life.
Tony Soprano: Circle-jerk of life. Where's the dignity?
Dr. Jennifer Melfi: If you're lucky, in the end you can let go of you pride. Let your loved ones care for you.
Tony Soprano: I'd rather they hold a pillow over my face.
Dr. Jennifer Melfi: I find it interesting you would say that. You tried to smother your mother with a pillow.

Bada-bing! Bada-boom! A great way to return a new season full of surprises!
7 April 2006 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

After nearly a two year wait "The Sopranos" returned with a bang! It seems as if season 6 will be the best and have the most drama allowed by law, as seen with this first episode "Members Only". In a real shocker one of Tony's longtime members Eugene Pontecorvo, wants out wanting to start a new life and relocate in Florida, but you know what honor and sticking it out means to Tony and the gang. So Gene's request is denied only then a shock happens that leaves an impact on our emotions and shows us right away that this season will be full of high drama! I don't want to say no more many might be waiting to watch this episode on DVD who don't get HBO, so wait for the shocker even though Eugene was a minor character this scene leaves an impact. Only this episode ends with a bang as Tony is shot by Uncle Junior! The big question was Junior in his right mind or not? Is he playing crazy or did he finally just want to put Tony out for good? This episode has paved the way for a high drama season and it's shaping up to be the most exciting since season three.
