Storyline

Tony gets another report from the cop who's been keeping an eye on Dr. Melfi. He's still having erotic dreams about her but is suffering from erectile dysfunction and a distancing from Carmela. He tells Jennifer Melfi how he feels about her but she has an explanation for his emotions. Uncle Junior is the new boss and he's making his presence felt. He decides to tax Hesh who had a special arrangement with his predecessor. Hesh doesn't mind being taxed, it's the amount that he doesn't like. The other captains are unhappy as well as Junior is stepping in on some of their money earning schemes without even having the courtesy of telling them about it. Tony approaches New York boss Johnny 'Sack' Sacramoni to find a solution to the situation. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The title is a reference to Pax Romana, the long period of relative peace in the Roman Empire from the beginning of Augustus Caesar's reign in 27 B.C. to the end of Marcus Aurelius' in 180 A.D. (And Livia Soprano, fittingly or ironically, shares the same first name as Emperor Augusta's wife and trusted advisor, Livia.) See more »

Quotes

Corrado 'Junior' Soprano: I always thought you could make the pros. You could have done it. You had a swing like Joe D.
Tony Soprano: You're crazy.
Corrado 'Junior' Soprano: What? You think I'm fucking you?
Tony Soprano: Yeah, I could barely hit .250.
Corrado 'Junior' Soprano: That's because you didn't want it. Too busy chasing skirt. Chasing skirt, your average was .500.

While Tony is treating Uncle Junior as the head of la famiglia, Junior begins screwing things up and makes everybody angry as hell. So Tony must finesse the old man. The FBI meanwhile moves Uncle Junior to the head of the famiglia list on its bulletin board. At home, Tony has a problem: he has become impotent to his meds. He also, under the influence of them and because his treatment under Dr. Melfi is moving forward, professes his love for Dr. Melfi and even kisses her. Talk about trouble in paradise. Carmela senses things are not working in her favor and, after chatting with her priest, decides to win Tony back. Tony has a couple of dreams, both involving Melfi. The first has her show up under his covers (and for half a second, at least in my head, she looks an awful lot like Meadow). A second dream has her show up nice and wet and naked in his shower. When Tony wakes from that one, he quickly rolls over to make sure it is Carmela lieing next to him. His double-take is priceless. A near-perfect episode.
