  • Carmela falls for Mr. Wexler (A.J.'s guidance counselor) and has wild with him, I Hope Tony Doesn't Find Out! Tony B. finds some mysterious money and decides to use it to help him with his massage parlor. He partners up with his Korean laundry boss, a

    The worst episode of the season so far. The problem with this episode is it feels more like a soap opera about a lonely soon-to-be divorcee and her love affair with her son’s guidance counselor, then an episode of my favorite show. The only shocking moment is when Carmela has with him, which probably marks the only man she’s had with besides “Mr. Mob Boss” to quote Meadow Soprano in response to her father. The only pay off we get from this wannabe episode of “Days of Our Lives”, is detailed information on Tony B. and the fact he is going to be a part of the Mafia now. Also, that scene with Tony B. beating up that old Korean man was exhilarating. A well choreographed fight sequence by veteran director, Peter Bogdanovich. In the end the episode isn't poorly written, it's just so out of character for The Sopranos. They have these episodes every once in a blue moon, and I think it's just a bad choice in plot points. Oh, well, I hope next week's is much better.
