Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Junior Soprano (credit only)
Bobby 'Bacala' Baccalieri (as Steven R. Schirripa)


Tony is still comatose and if anything, his condition is deteriorating. The doctor's are trying to control a fever-causing infection and Carmela is increasingly worried, if that's possible. The strain of leading the family and constantly settling disputes among the captains is affecting Syl whose asthma is acting up. He orders Paulie and Vito to each give Carmela $100,000 as Tony's share of a recent big score. They both hold off waiting to see if Tony lives or dies. Vito sees himself as Tony natural successor and starts to prepare the way. Bobby Bacala and Christopher learn what AJ has been planning. As for Tony, his dream continues where he is mistaken for someone by the name of Finnerty. When he sees a poster announcing a Finnerty family reunion, he drops by only to find a familiar face as the doorman who urges him to go inside the brightly lit house where everyone is waiting for him.

A mini-movie, the most drama I've seen in an hour of TV in a long time.
7 April 2006 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This episode "Mayham" is good from start to finish. Tony still is in a coma, and Silvio Dante takes over the family business in Tony's absence and things get crazy! Paulie and Vito earn a score only to have to divide the earnings per Silvio, giving T's half to Carmela. And folks a word to the wise I think Vito held some money back he's gonna get on Tony's bad side, a hint of possible things to come I think Vito will sleep with the fishes in a future episode! Paulie shows his honor by remaining a dedicated warrior, in the end this episode ends happy by Tony coming out of his coma, only I think this episode foreshadows something is about to happen with at least one character sleeping with the fishes! It goes to show never trust anyone not our enemies nor our friends it seems that all people are just in the world for themselves.
