After Uncle Junior falls on the courthouse steps, he's admitted to the hospital and Tony thinks they have the basis of a mistrial on the basis of diminished capacity. They set him up with home care and rehearse him with the questions government doctors will likely ask him. Ralphie thinks he's figured out who told Johnny Sack of the joke he made at his wife's expense and sets out to even the score. Things turn deadly serious when his son Justin is seriously hurt playing with a friend. Tony brings Carmela to the stables to see Pie-O-My for the first time. Tony is devastated however when he learns that the horse was badly injured in a fire at the stables and had to be put down. He suspects Ralphie had the fire set so he could collect on insurance and they get into a fight. Tony needs Christopher's help to clean up the results but soon realizes he's high on drugs.

Did You Know?


When Tony and Chris watch the 1954 movie The Last Time I Saw Paris (1954) on TV, it marks the second time Tony is shown watching a film starring Donna Reed. The previous time was some 12 shows earlier in Season 3, Episode 10 when he was in his bedroom and happened to turn with annoyance, to see yet another re-run around Xmas time of It's a Wonderful Life (1946).

Margetis Review: The Sopranos, Episode 48 "Whoever Did This"
11 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Finally, after eight episodes, The Sopranos has returned to the beautiful quality it was since the very first season. First of all, a lot of interesting events happened in this episode, most of which is going to have a profound affect on the four last episodes of the season. First of all, Ralph's son, Justin (whom we never knew existed) gets hospitalized for taking a archery arrow in the chest, when he was fooling around with his friend. Ralph is a mess about it, and his kid may not live. But, even before that, to get back at Paulie for telling Johnny Sack he made fun of "shamu's fat ass", Ralph makes a call to Paulie's mother at green grove, posing to be a police detective, and tells her they found her son sucking a boy scout's d*ck, and they also found a gerbil in his rectum. The funniest scene ever created on The Sopranos - Period! Paulie's mom is so upset they have to put her on pills to sleep. Paulie gets so furious, he asks Tony's permission to whack Ralph, Tony doesn't give Paulie permission seeing as though Ralph's a good earner. I found Junior faking Alzheimer's for a government psychiatrist, so they think he's certifiably insane, was hilarious. But just when everything is going good for Tony, he gets a call about Pie-O-My being burned to in a fire, thinking it was Ralph, he goes over to his house and confronts him. They get in a huge entertaining fight including eggs, a frying pan, raid, and a butcher knife, that ends with Tony choking the life out of Ralph. Later, he calls Christopher to help dispose of the body. They cut Ralph's body into pieces, and put his severed head in a bowling bag. You also find out Ralph wears a toupee. On top of it all, Tony confronts Chris about his problem. It all ends with Tony waking up in the Bada Bing after disposing of Ralph, and looking for Christopher. But where is he? Getting high is my guess. Although not the best episode ever, it was definitely the most mind-blowing, rip-roaring and racy episode ever in Sopranos history. Joe Pantoliano needs an Emmy and Golden Globe for his astounding and haunting performance and Robin Green and Mitchell Burgess (the writers) are geniuses. Written by Robin Green & Mitchell Burgess ; Directed by Tim Van Patten. My Rating: 10/10
