Storyline

Tony wants to reduce the risk of being caught on a wiretap and tells Christopher that in future he will be giving more and more orders through him. He sees Christopher replacing him some day. Christopher's drug habit is growing and it's beginning to affect his work however. Tony is upset and blames himself when he leans that Gloria Trillo committed suicide. Artie Bucco's new hostess Elodi introduces him to her brother Jean-Philippe who tells him that he needs $50,000 to secure North American distribution rights for a French liqueur. Artie sees an opportunity to make some quick cash and borrows the money from Tony with a promise to repay it all in two weeks. When it all goes sour and the money disappears, Tony proves to be a good friend no matter how difficult Artie makes it. AJ's friends, especially his rich girlfriend Devon, are impressed with his family's mob ties. He's embarrassed however when he sees just how rich her family is. Written by garykmcd

Everybody Hurts is a risky episode, the risk being that of transforming The Sopranos into a tearful soap opera. Thankfully, the material is handled with the usual dexterity, lending a special poignancy to the show's events.

The main story is connected to one of the previous season's major subplots: Tony's affair with the emotionally unstable Gloria Trillo (Annabella Sciorra). The romance ended quite badly, and now Tony is devastated upon hearing Gloria has killed herself, as he realizes for the first time in his life what a negative effect he can have on the people around him. Artie Bucco, on the other hand, seems to be completely unmoved by his current situation (divorce and all) and embarks on a new adulterous relationship.

The two plot strands show two friends coping with the difficulties that derive from their urge to satisfy natural instincts, and with Artie's share of the tale being quite familiar, it's Tony's reaction to Gloria's suicide that really grabs the attention. Thanks to a thoughtful script and a touching, nuanced turn from the superb Gandolfini, Everybody Hurts becomes a surprisingly striking reflection on guilt and remorse, unveiling new sides of the protagonist's psyche and fully justifying the show's debt to Greek tragedy. Simply beautiful.
