The episode was very compelling. Even the minor characters contributed greatly to the success of this episode. I especially liked Joanna Bonaro who played Doris DeNunzio. She totally nailed this NY Italian character. Too bad her part was so short - it would have been nice to see a bit more of this actress. She has a screen presence that is not typical of most actresses and you can see she is truly one of the better actresses out there. It is rare to find a pretty face that can actually act.
I thought this was one of the better episodes for this long lasting TV drama. Bravo!
