The Knight in White Satin Armor (#2.12)
9 March 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Richie and Janice are getting engaged. But he is causing trouble. HE wants Junior to make another hit on Tony, only this time Junior tells it to Tony. He is thinking of getting rid of Richie, but he doesn't have to as Janice kills him herself. Tony also breaks up with his mistress and has to deal with her wanting to kill herself.

An excellent episode. First of all, Richie's death was great. I liked the character and am sad that he is gone.But it was done greatly. I only saw what is coming when he hit Janice, then I could see in her eyes that he is a goner. Which speaks for great acting on her part. But before that I wouldn't have said that this is the way he will be gone.

The story about the mistress was fun. The character wasn't very big to miss, but she always brought some comic relief. Here we have it again, with the shrink issue, including the Romanian one whom she wouldn't talk to because of some national issues.
