Oh. My. God.
I can’t believe that Tony killed Ralphie, and the way the whole thing played out. I’ve been feeling lately that they might be building to something, what with Tony now dating Valentina, but I sure as hell didn’t expect this.
I forget — frequently — that Tony is prone to extreme violence. So when they hit you with it, it’s incredibly disconcerting. When he was driving the backhoe, he was practically giggling with glee as he backed it up (before they rounded the corner to start digging the hole for the head).
Unbelievable, plain and simple. Next week looks like there’s going to be the beginnings, perhaps, of an inter-family war, but then, with the way they tease you with the trailers, nothing is ever what you expect.
Also, who here thinks Uncle Junior isn’t faking all of it? It seemed pretty apparent at the end, when he came in from looking for his paper.
