New York mob boss Johnny Sack is upset that that one of his young hoods, Joe Peeps, has been shot. He assumes that Carmine Lupertazzi Jr. ordered the hit but has no idea who the actual shooter was. All he has is that a man with a severe limp was seen leaving the area. He mentions that fact to Tony when they're out golfing and Tony promptly has a panic attack: he knows the shooter was his cousin, Tony Blundetto. Above all, Tony wanted his men to stay out of the New York gang war. Carmela decides the time has come to go to the next step and get a divorce. She's having a hard time finding a lawyer who will take her case however. Meadow and her boyfriend Finn are going through a bit of a hard patch. He doesn't have a job for the summer and is thinking of returning to California. Tony gets him a job on the Esplanade construction site and he gets a look at some of the mobsters up close. He also learns something about Vito that he would rather not know. Written by

's limping is a reference the 2002 Off-Broadway production of "The Resistable Rise of Arturo Ui," where Buscemi's character limps during the course of the entire play. The same production also starred Dominic Chianese
and John Ventimiglia
, about two years before this TV episode aired in May 2004. See more
Instead of forcefully inviting Finn to a baseball game, why didn't Vito use a less confrontational approach in convincing Finn not to disclose he was a closeted homosexual? Vito should know Finn is dating the boss's daughter, hence is considered "untouchable", as Paulie acknowledged in the beginning of this episode. See more

Turns out somebody got a look at the guy who did Joe Peeps. All they got so far is he's got a bad limp.
Huh. Long John Silver maybe.
