Johnny Sack is in jail and the Feds seem to have a pretty strong case against him. His lawyer is trying to get the best deal possible but he's definitely going to get a long jail sentence and lose most of his assets. In the end, he agrees to 15 years and his his wife gets to keep the house and her pension account. He also has to admit in open court that he was a member of La Cosa Nostra, something that doesn't sit well with some of his fellow mobsters.

Tone and Janice
24 May 2008 | by See all my reviews

Janice, Janice, Janice: ever since she showed up for the first time in Season Two, she's been a huge pain in Tony's ass. Moe n' Joe takes a deeper look at the relationship between the two siblings, while at the same time setting events in line for the undoubtedly tragic ending of Season Six, Part One.

During one of his nowadays rare sessions with Dr. Melfi, Tony opens up about his childhood, explaining how Janice would bully him and the extort favors; as a teenager, he would be approached by kids who wanted to be his friends only so that they could get close enough to his sister; and more recently, she left hi in charge of their mother, with her coming back in time to profit from the old lady's death. Considering his state of mind, it's hardly surprising Tony's getting a good laugh out of Janice's current misfortunes.

Meanwhile, Vito Spatafore seems to have adjusted to life in New Hampshire, going as far as coming clean to his new lover about his identity. After a while, though, he realizes he is making a mistake and makes an even bigger one by heading back to New Jersey, where Phil's all but welcoming arms will be waiting.

Over the years, the psychoanalysis scenes have provided some good insights concerning Tony's feelings and thoughts, elements that are otherwise shown only in the famous dream sequences. And so, after recollections of his parents, we get a glimpse of what it was like to grow up with Janice, understanding the origins of all their adorable discussions in past episodes. As for the Vito section, the poignancy of previous shows is retained, especially as the outcome becomes more and more obvious. Let's just say: ouch!
