Episode Summary

AIRED:
Joe's elder daughter, Amanda, is suspended from school school after getting into a fistfight with a classmate. Despite urging from Maggie and Joe, Amanda refuses to talk about what happened and the principal threatens to expel her. Joe must balance this with his job, where things are heating up because of the pressure Caesar, the new underboss, is putting on Sonny. Caesar hates Sonny and wants to have him killed, but he knows the boss would never sanction it. So instead he pushes Sonny and tries to force him to make a mistake, which would give Caesar a legitimate reason to take him out. Caesar demands that Sonny whack his Uncle Jackie Savino, who took Sonny under his wing after his father was killed for ratting out when Sonny was a boy. Sonny loves Jackie like a father, but rules are rules and he assigns the hit to Joe when he offers. The FBI visits Jackie to tell him about the contract, and they plan to snatch him off the street before the hit can go down. Sonny also tips off Jackie and suggests that he run. Jackie, however, goes after Caesar instead--but he has a heart attack before he can go through with the hit. He is hospitalized, where he makes a deal with Jules and the FBI. He also meets with Sonny and tells him that if he gets out of the hospital, an order is an order and Sonny should come after him like he's supposed to. But after Sonny leaves, Jackie decides to make it easy on him and does the job himself by disconnecting his heart machine. Meanwhile, the girl whom Amanda got in a fight with admits that she provoked Amanda, and she is allowed to return to school. Caesar tells Sonny to find the rat that tipped off Jackie to the hit, and he suggests that it could be Joe. But Sonny confesses to his crew that it was him that tipped off the old Savino, and it starts to look more and more like a war is between the two is inevitable.moreless
