Episode Summary

EDIT
You Can't Always Get What You Want.
AIRED:
The assistant director of the FBI, Floyd Kehoe, criticizes Jules for the way he is running the operation and wants to meet with Joe. Kehoe questions Joe's loyalty to the Bureau and his mental stability after twenty-nine months undercover. He wants to end the operation and write it off as a failure--they have come up with only enough evidence for small cases against Sonny, Jimmy, Sally and Vito, that they know the Family's counsel, Noah Dietrich, will easily be able to fight. So far they have nothing on the boss or underboss. kehoe also feels that they no longer even have to go after Ricci, because the D.A.'s office will be bringing him to trial for an unrelated charge in a couple weeks. Luckily, Jules and Joe are able to convince Kehoe that D.A. Gold's case is weak at best and it would be profitable to continue their operation, since Caesar, Ricci and Sonny appear to be setting up a major heoin import and distribution network. Kehoe gives them two weeks, and Joe starts wearing a wire to speed up the operation. Meanwhile, Joe's home life is starting to fall apart; Maggie asks him to stay away until the investigation is over and he can be a full-time husband and father again. Sonny, still grieving for his friend Lucky, turns to Joe as the only one he can trust. He admits to executing Lucky and tells Joe the details of the drug operation--Joe catches both conversations on tape. The FBI makes plans to be there to bust the first shipment of heroin when it comes in. Meanwhile, Sonny's sister Dede has become romantically involved with Caesar, against strict orders from her brother to stay away from him. Caesar has always hated Sonny and wants him dead, and Sonny sees the relationship as a way for the underboss to get to him. Sonny orders Dede to take her son Christopher and leave town until he tells her it's okay to return, and warns her not to tell anyone that she is leaving. Dede, however, disobeys her brother once more and innocently informs Caesar of the plan. Caesar takes Dede's absence as an oppurtunity to hit Sonny. But his plan goes tragically wrong when his men screw up and plant a bomb in Sonny's car before Dede is safely out of town. Caesar orders his man to stop the hit at the last moment when he learns of the mistake, but it is too late. Sonny and Dede are loading the last bag into the trunk before leaving for the airport when Christopher, playing in the front seat, turns the key and triggers the explosion.moreless
