Several old-time mobsters are coming out of prison soon having completed their sentences. Tony is particularly looking forward to seeing his cousin Tony Blundetto, who in their youth was like a brother to him. Also being released is Feech La Manna who is looking to start earning again after being away for 20 years. Chris and Paulie are constantly arguing. Paulie feels that the young Chris doesn't pay him enough respect but Chris is frustrated by the rules that always put him at the bottom of the ladder. He's particularly tired of always having to pick up the dinner tab. Tony and Carmela are still separated but he's sent someone around to stand guard after he learns there was a bear in the backyard. Tony hasn't see Dr. Melfi for some and decides once again to try and pursue a romance with her. Written by garykmcd

When Benny/Little Paulie are guarding the backyard, the weapon they are armed with is a Norinco 84s (.223) AK-47, as evident by the straight magazine. Later when Tony tells Benny he can leave for the night, and he will take over, Tony walks to the table to retrieve the weapon and it is still a Norinco 84s. When he lights up his cigar outside and lifts the weapon, it changes to a Norinco 56s (7.62x39). This is evident by the curve of the magazine. See more »

The right way they show how psycoanalysis works.
29 May 2006 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

*spoiler* .I like the way the series shows some scene of psycoanalysis and how it works. I don't even see this perfection in The Prince of tide.How very important is the infancy for the future adult. If you don't know where you came from, who you were, you can be very confuse about your present.

The way the traumas are inherited by descendant are shown perfectly. I can't imagine how this will finish since Tony's life I don't believe will change too much in the short time. Will see. The script writer are genius, they works with too many characters. Its difficult. I know. I'm a writer my own.

Congratulation for the Tonys award !.-
