    homer is sent to prison for 10 years. He is told however he can get out of it if he becomes a snitch on fat tony. so, with a disguise (a wig! that's a great disguise right) he follows tony around, but soon they form a friendship. when homer reveals he is homer (remember the wig), fat tony is so shocked he has a heart attack and dies. homer is sad until he meets 'fit tony', who gradually becomes the new fat tony.

    the exact moment this episode went down for me was when fat tony died. up until that moment the episode was good. sure, that moment happened when there was only 5-6 minutes left, but still. i hate the last act. hate it. if you're going to kill a character, why on earth have them be replaced? fat tony dying was kind of lame (i mean come on he knows who homer is, it's not like they've never interacted). and then, he's replaced by a character we JUST MET who happens to be his uncle. i mean, what? how would you describe this to a friend or fan who missed the episde? "Oh, it was good, fat tony died." "Really?" "Yea, but then they replace him with his uncle, Fit Tony." "Fit tony? What episode was he in?" "Oh, he's just in this episode." I mean what was the point? To fill another act? If i didn't like the first 3 acts a lot this could be a contender for worst episode ever. It's an insult, i think, to fat tony and his fans. "Oh, we're going to kill a character, but then in the end he technically will be reborn!" Grade- C
