The boy is back in town
4 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Richie Aprile, the late don's older brother, is back in town after 10 years in the can, and quickly moves to reassert himself. This includes ramming and then running over someone who supposedly is under Tony's protection. While Richie is a head shorter and much older than Tony, he is defiant almost to the point of physical confrontation with the new boss. He dead-stares Tony as Tony dresses him down, not once but twice. Richie also cozies up to the easily flattered Junior, pledging his undying loyalty to the old fart. Meanwhile, Meadow throws a wild party at Livia's house, and the cops get called in. Meadow deftly manipulates her father as he tries to discipline her. You have to catch her priceless facial expressions as she knows she has won. Dr. Melfi has a breakdown, thanks to Tony. Kudos to David Proval as Richie Aprile. This veteran character actor makes you truly believe Richie is a scary, dangerous man. A great episode.
