It's Tony's birthday and he and Carmela are planning to spend the weekend with Bobby and Janice at their cottage. It doesn't start off well when Tony is arrested on a gun charge by the local police. He's quickly released when the local Sheriff drops the charges but the Feds will roll the charge into their RICO investigation. The weekend at the lake with Bobby and Janice starts off well, though too much alcohol and a competitive game of Monopoly leads to Bobby and Tony having a fight. Tony sends him to Montreal to do a hit, something Bobby has never done. AJ throws a party while his parents are away. Phil Leotardo is home again after recovering from his heart attack and a stretch of physical therapy. He seems to have little interest in assuming any leadership role in his family. Written by
