    The fact is that all episodes after episode 4 do not compare to the awesomeness of season 1. This episode is not as exciting as previous episodes, though it does have its high velocity points, such as Jimmy, Mikey, and Chucky all getting whacked in one episode. Otherwise, it's nowhere near as good as say episodes 2-4. The major drawback is that Tony and his crew is somewhat victorious in the finale, and many things are left unclear. However, though everything is solved later on and quarrels cease, this episode's flaws cannot be forgotten. Although this is still from the best season and all other seasons are junk in comparison to Season 1.moreless

    I asked so many peers what they thought about The Sopranos and if they recommended to watch it or not. I wasn't quiet sure whether i should start watching it or not, if i wanted to start watching it i would to beging from season 1. I finally began watching it and slowly began to fall inlove with it. There is something about this show, about Tony, that makes you love his acting. Tony acting cannot me more natural and more real. Ive heard alot of good stuff about this show and how its one of the only tv series that only gets better every season. All in all, this episode made me wanting to start season 2.moreless
  • Sad to see the season end. Onward to season 2

    9.1
    As a final episode of the season, it closed a lot of the story lines nicely. We get to see how Tony finds out who is the one who tried to have him killed. He is shocked to find out who it really was. Not only was it within his own organization but his own close relatives who eat at his house ever Sunday night. This would make some more interesting therapy sessions. But even thought he tried to have his nephew killed, Junior doesn't even make a deal to save his own self to make sure Tony doesn't get revenge. Livia is a bit more harsh as she pits one of Tony own childhood friends against him. Carmela finally realizes how Father Phil uses his position to befriend females and casts him off. In all I found it was entertaining and worthy of a season finally.moreless

    Some of the scenes that they put in to fill in the hour werent the best written pieces that they could have come up with - but this episode was everything that you could ever ask for out of a season finale - a gamechanger. This ending doesnt really let us know where the show is going for next season - it leaves the door open for a big story arch to begin during the first episode of season 2. Junior going to prison instead of getting killed was anicely written piece for a future "Hey...whats Junior doing out of jail?" kind of storyline. I do like the killing of Mike, as I think that helped Christophers character get over his friends death via Michael in the first couple of episodes of the season. The mole being killed within the first five minutes was another amazing scenes. All the action scenes lived up to the hype, it was the filler drama scenes that weren't the best. Good finale in my thoughts though.moreless

    • News Reporter: Not seized today, although named in the indictments, was alleged Soprano enforcer and loan-sharking chief, Michael "grab bag" Palmice. Authorities believe Palmice may have fled the New Jersey area acting on prior knowledge.
      Tony: (sarcastically) Lucky him.

    • Jimmy: Do I have enough cologne on?
      Christopher: You smell like Paco Rabane crawled up your ass and died.

    • Carmela: (to Father Phil) I think you have this M.O. where you manipulate spiritually thirsty women, and I think a lot of it is tied up with food somehow, as well as the sexual tension game.

    • Artie: (on Tony) I don't just hate this man, I hate all men.

    • Tony: (to Dr. Melfi) Don't be stupid, even in the short term.

    • Carmela: You know what I think Father, I think that you like the-I don't know what to call it-the whiff of sexuality that never goes anyplace.

      Tony: Well you tell them August came early this year.

    • Tony: What kind of person can I be where his own mother wants him dead?

    • Dr. Melfi: It's been a long odyssey with your mother.
