Storyline

At the Borgata Casino, Tony decides to let it ride after winning at roulette. Tony loses everything he'd won, and then some, on 23. Meanwhile, Vito Jr. is going through a rebellious phase. Tony asks Phil to talk to Vito Jr. Phil grudgingly agrees. AJ proposes to Blanca over a nice dinner, promising her that he will rise from pizzeria night manager to restaurant chain owner in no time, and coaxes a "yes" out of her. At the Puerto Rican day parade, Blanca meets up with AJ and returns his engagement ring, telling him she just doesn't feel it. Written by Dennis

Vito Jr.
27 May 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

In Season Five, Tony was shown gambling in one episode as an attempt to get over Carmela. The sixteenth show of Season Six, Chasing It, returns to that territory in an effort to prove Tony is precisely as flawed as the people (Chris, Bobby, Paulie) he's considered killing in the past few eps. And the effort works.

While hanging out on business with the rest of the crew, Tony keeps playing roulette, confident that his newfound luck won't desert him. The theory is proved to be untrue, as he immediately has to deal with a new problem: Vito Spatafore's widow, Marie, wants to move away from Jersey so that her son Vito Jr. won't be bullied anymore. As it turns out, the kid has become a little monster: he dresses like a Marilyn Manson fan, gets in fights and even vandalizes cemeteries. Only a joined effort on behalf of Tony and Phil can solve the matter for the best.

Chasing It is a rather low key episode, but that doesn't mean it's any less satisfying than others: the lack of meaningful plot developments is compensated by the ever quotable dialogue and the usual solemn acting, especially a fine double act between Gandolfini and Frank Vincent, which is more than enough to prevent the series from slipping into the "average" zone.
