Excellent finale to an excellent season
30 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Whitecaps is an extraordinary, powerful ending to an excellent season. The majority of the episode is given to the disintegration of the marriage between Tony and Carmela. Okay, well that's a lie, because the disintegration of their marriage has gone on for a while now. Rather, it was the climactic and bitter ending to what was left of it. Both Gandolfini and Falco give their finest performances here, knocking the material out of the park and making us ache for what is left of their relationship.

As for the season as a whole, excellent as mentioned before. Some episodes' structures aren't as focused as the third season's, but overall, a more than worthy continuation of this fantastic saga. Drea De Matteo has never had more to do, and she has become one of the most sympathetic characters on the show. Lorraine Bracco's Dr. Melfi is not seen nearly enough anymore, which is a shame. I hope that changes in the next season.
