Storyline

Ralph Cifaretto, who is still having a relationship with Rosalie Aprile, is having girlfriend problems with one of the dancers at the Bada Bing, Tracee. She asks Tony for help when she gets pregnant by Ralph since she isn't sure Ralph will take care of her if she has the baby. Ralph has been acting over the top lately and when he kills Tracee in the Bing's parking lot, Tony teaches him a lesson. At Columbia, Meadow and Noah's relationship is moving forward but Meadow's roommate Caitlin Rucker is behaving very oddly. She's not fitting in with university life and reaches out to Meadow who is sympathetic but doesn't appreciate just how serious the problem is. Noah is also sympathetic, at least at first, but eventually gets his entertainment lawyer father to get a restraining order against Caitlin. Meadow gets to meet Noah's Dad but Noah shows his true colors. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

According to Ariel Kiley who played the victimized Bada Bing stripper, Tracee, many viewers were so offended by this episode's violence that they canceled their HBO subscriptions, a fact she didn't mind saying she was proud of, since demonstrating offensive violence was precisely the intent of her and her fellow actors on the show.

One of the most disturbing episodes of the entire series
22 February 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Sopranos (1999)

University 3.6 (2001)

Contains strong brutal violence, graphic sexuality and very strong coarse language

One of the most violent and disturbing episodes of The Sopranos, it shows the unglamorous and mindless brutality and coarseness of crime and the people behind it.

Ralphie, the new partner of Rosalie Aprile is causing troubles at the Bada Bing, which finally results with the senseless beating and killing of a young prostitute.

Meanwhile Noah and Meadow's relationship is not going so well.

Series 3 is a solid continuation of the dramatically superb and acclaimed Television series.

8/10
