Storyline

Paulie shows up at Tony's house to tell him he's learned the Feds are looking into a murder case from the early 1980s. In fact it was Tony's first killing where he made his 'bones'. Tony decides he and Paulie need to lay low for a while and they head off on a road trip to Florida. They reminisce about the old days but Paulie is definitely getting on Tony's nerves. They also find that many things along the route have changed over the years. Tony is particularly interested in knowing who may have told Johnny Sack about the fat joke directed at his wife. Uncle Junior meanwhile has taken to organizing a poker game with his new friend Carter Chong. Junior's as grumpy as ever but continues to suffer from memory loss from time to time. Carter likes Junior's rebellious attitude but things change when the doctors change Junior's meds and he becomes far more docile. Written by garykmcd

Most Poignant And Nostalgic of the Final Episodes
5 July 2018 | by Dan1863SicklesSee all my reviews

Whenever I rent the final season of THE SOPRANOS on DVD this is always the episode I turn to first. I think of it as the perfect farewell to the series. Both sides of the plot complement each other perfectly. While Tony and Paulie go on a long road trip, it becomes clear that their long-time friendship won't last forever, and that the glory days of the mob are already behind them. Meanwhile, Uncle Junior is in the mental home, trying desperately to hold onto his dignity and his identity as his memory begins to fade. In the process he makes friends with a troubled young Asian inmate named Carter Chong.

Tony wants to get rid of his memories -- to get rid of Paulie. Uncle Jun desperately wants to hold on to his memories -- and recreate the past in the present with the help of a young man who has no past and no future. It's all unbelievably sad, or it would be sad if every scene weren't so action packed and funny. The way Junior sets up the card game. The way he puts the Rutgers professor back in his place. The way Carter Chong learns to be a man by watching Junior fight a losing battle to hold onto his manhood, his dignity, and in the end his very identity.

This episode is where they get rid of all the dead wood. No Dr. Melfi. No Meadow. No A.J.!!!! This one is the real thing. It's one part Huckleberry Finn, one part One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest. And it's brilliant!
