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.
