Emotions are boring, I just want to see shit blow up
This season of the sopranos ends leading to next years final 8 episodes ever (and then the eventual movie trilogy). Anyway this season has been a mixed bag, dudes like me have loved it regardless cause I like shit like plot build up, but they kind of dropped the ball on the vito thang. A little too much buildup with not enough climax(but they did have some great unintentional comedy with Phil coming out the closet I am not sure why but that made me chuckle) but in reality all the shit was used as the final fodder to bring New Jersey and New York to a near bloodbath, and establish that the final 8 episodes will either lead Tony to becoming the true don of the underworld, or his eventual demise. Anyway before we get into the future lets recap this past episode.
Speaking of NY/NJ the show starts off with Carlo picking up fat doms frozen head from a freezer and putting his head down a sewer drain in Connecticut. Carlo calls Silvio to tell him the final piece has been taken care off and asks if the weenie roast is still on. The "weenie roast" is tony's retaliation for Vito by blowing up Phil's Wire Room. As Phil and his gumba housekeeper head to the room shit explodes. Vinny Delpino calls up tony to tell him the job has been done, and the sha(tonys nickname for phil cause dude looks like the Shah of Iran) and his skeeza were blown back.
Elsewhere that real estate broad from ER that tony couldn't "seal" the deal with is back as Tony signs the papers over to Jamba Juice. Tony tells he does not like to mix business and pleasure, but can't get her out of his mine and wants another chance. She wants nothing to do with him though, the reason being she is fucking Chris. She met chris in a AA meeting, she is recovering drunk and junk user, and after a meeting she was at with Chris they went out for coffee which resulted in them fucking.
Elsewhere Chris's ex finance Adriana's mom tried to commit suicide, leading Carmela to want to hire a private investigator to try to find her. This makes tony realize that Carmela needs a career so he tells silvio to lean on the building inspector so carmela can concentrate on her spec house again. Its now thanksgiving and tony asks chris who his new goomba is. Chris says she is a black chick, hence why he never brought her around, he didn't want to deal with the shit Paulie would give him etc. The reality is he is fucking the real estate chick and knows Tony might not be too keen on that shit.
Elsewhere AJ becomes struck on this banging Latino secretary from his work site. At the bar he gets her number but she only gives him 6 digits saying he has to work for the rest. The girl is about 10 years older than him with a three year old son. None of this phases AJ who starts to date the girl. While at her place watching the "40 Year Old Virgin" some white hoodlums hang outside her place blasting pitbull's "Kulo" which I am pretty sure is just ass over and over again, which is beautiful. If I am wrong someone correct me, but in my mind its just ass ass ass, KULO, ass ass ass, KULO etc. AJ gets them to leave by giving them his Gary Fisher bike his folks bough him last Christmas. For getting them to leave the broad fucks his brains out. I am saying I got an Iron Horse bike in my shed that should at least get me a blowjob correct?
Little Carmine sets up a meeting between Tony and phil to squash the beef. The beef is settled and tony and phil agree to let the pass shit with vito and the wire room bombing be put to rest. That is until dumb ass lil Carmine mentions Phil's brother being murdered with pisses off Phil and has him storm off. Tony can't believe Carmine would have mentioned that. The NY crew wants revenge and Phils lackeys say something has to be done and he has been too accommodating to Tony. They want an eye for an eye and Tony dead. Phil says he will never kill a boss, and when that happened in the pass it wasn't right. His crew says well then pick someone then to take out.
Elsewhere Julianna (the real estate agent) is sick with a horrible cough. Chris says he will get her some cough medicine but she refuses cause of the alcohol content so they settle on Valerian tea, which in turn leads them back on junk. Chris decides to tell Tony he is banging her so he won't think he is back on the junk. Tony seems not to care until he see's Melfi and is bitter about it. He also tells Melfi he realizes he has a weird attraction to girls that are, "Dark complexion, smart, they smell a little bit, of money...That's probably why I still come here."
Elsewhere Agent Harris stops by the pork store to warn tony of some info he heard out of Brooklyn. He tells Tony he is not popular at all in Brooklyn right now and that someone close to him maybe in danger. Tony thanks him and agent harris responds with a shrug that it's Christmas.
Phil has a serious heart attack and that will be a 5-6 months recovery. Tony goes to visit him and tells him of his own epiphany when he was near death. And all this bullshit is useless, that we need to end all of it cause their is enough for both of them to live like kings, and the most important things in life is family and grandchildren. Phil tears up and seems to agree. However when Tony was living when of Phil's henchmen seems ominous and has an obvious dislike for Tony.
The show ends at Christmas with AJ bringing over his new girl who Carmela seems a little worried about cause she is older than aj and Puerto Rican. Tony doesn't seem to mind saying at least she is catholic. And the show ends with Meadow calling and the family hanging out outside the Christmas tree.
