Meanwhile, Tony's convalescence creates a power void that some crew members are all too happy to try to fill.moreless

  • Tony is in a coma. The Family deals.

    9.4
    This was one of the most somber and human episodes of Sopranos, or any television show for that matter. Stylistically, it reminded me of an episode of Lost, with its dream-coma sequences that seemed to be fraught with symbolism and allusions. If Tony comes out of this alive, this could be his first step towards turning good. Overall, what an emotional and different episode.
  • Full of symbolism and allusions

    A more poignant and emotional episode of Sopranos as we now look over him lying in his "deathbed". The acting really shined in this episode and Edie Falco was fkn amazing. Tony Soprano's acting in his dream sequence and maintaining character as someone not in his real position as a Jersey Boss was the best. It was weird not hearing him talk with that annoying Jersey accent. A.J shows his anger and will definetly do something in the future.



    It was not an episode that advanced viewers in the storyline, except for the foreshadowing events that may take place between A.J and Uncle Junior and the direction of power between the Captains. It was an episode full of symbolism and allusions in Tony's dream that kept viewers guessin as to when he was going to wake up out of the coma.

    It will be quite interesting to see what the Captains will do and how they will maintain their territory with one boss behind jail and the other boss in a coma. It definetly is a turn in direction from the norm.moreless
  • Great episode! Sets things further in place.

    9.0
    Tony lying in a coma was a great opportunity to reveal the intentions of his captains in the face of tragedy, and also to show the true feelings of his family members. Janice was as always self-centered. AJ, Meadow and Carmella showed they truly loved Tony despite all that had happened over the years.



    The episode ending without resolution of Tony's coma was another welcome development. I imagined the end would have to be his waking up, but Chase didn't resort to cliche endings. Next week proves to be violent, or at least tense.moreless
  • Gooooooood Lord that's some good television.

    9.7
    Fan-freakin-tastic. This episode of Sopranos made me wanna do cart-wheels it was so good. I was watching it with a buddy of mine, and by the end of the episode we were holding hands comforting each other as the pure emotion of the episode moved us towards total bliss. Why bliss? Because that was good television. Television in the late 90's was crap. But today it is better then ever. It's amazing how so little happened last night in regards to season arcs, little things here and there but nothing big, but just watching the family deal with Tony's coma was riveting. And watching the alter-Tony was an interesting insight to what could have happened. Almost like the Sopranos version of the Christmas Story. Two thumbs up. Way Up.moreless
  • Wow! Wow.

    9.6
    I never thought a Sopranos episode would actually make my eyes water with worry and sadness, but this did it. At first I was simply amused by the Tony-dream storyline, in which he is a businessman trapped on a business trip because he's accidentally switched IDs. But the more I watched, the more gripping it became, and the more I felt it truly related to the idea of being lost in a coma.



    Will he come out of it? Only future episodes will reveal the outcome, but I certainly hope he emerges alive and healthy, if only because he's the emotional backbone of this series. At any rate, it is providing some great storylines. This show is back to it's original form!moreless
