It is very clear that this episode of The Sopranos was of a much more familiar tone breaking free (for the most part) from depressing and dark images. Although this episode was more familiar in mood and setting, it seems to be symbolic of a façade of the “new” Tony. Tony appears to be back to his old self; however the talk about religion, philosophy and his near death experience may prove otherwise. This episode may not have appeared as riveting as the previous ones, but for those who have a keen eye, this episode is a set up for great things to come. This season I am noticing some drastic “emotional” character development in seemingly static characters, such as Paulie and Vito, which I love. I also found it very intriguing how Carmella boldly and ardently informed Tony about Vito and his off behaviour. The wind theme was especially interesting. I am captivated by the symbolism this season.
