Only read if you're interested in finding out what happens the first two episodes of the next season of Sopranos....

Highlight text below to see synopsis of Episode 1:








The first episode stars with a flashback to 2004 with the Feds raid on Johnny Sack. We see Tony booking it fast through the woods making his getaway. Only this time we see some kid in the window of his bedroom witness Tony ditching the gun in the snow. We then see the kid retrieve the gun.

Cut to present day. Tony and Carmela are asleep in bed with the cops banging on the door. Carmella screams is this it and thus begins the final season. Turns out it's not "IT" but Tony's in some trouble all the same. He gets taken downtown by the cops in his bathrobe and slippers. Turns out the kid who found the gun 3 years ago has gone and gotten arrested with it and claims he saw Tony ditch it way back when. Tony's out of the slammer in no time but not before we get to see him sitting amongst the dregs of humanity in the holding cell, staring off into nothing. This is the first of many times over the next 2 hours that we see Tony simply sitting and thinking.

And now for a quick update on the rest of the family:Meadow is back living at home, her loser boyfriend Finn is long gone, and she's studying to be a pediatrician. Nobody's making offers on Carmella's house and AJ's looking like Artie's heroin buddy. Turns out it's only because he's still with his hot girlfriend with the kid and she's turned into a harpee. So it's the perfect time for Tony and Carmella to take a getaway to Bobby and Janice's lake up near Canada. Oh, and Tony's lawyer calls while he's en route and tells him the cops have dropped the gun charge so things are looking up.

Jump ahead a few hours to the lake house where Carmella and Janice are knocking back the wine like pros while Tony and Bobby shoot guns, fish and discuss the good old times. Tony mentions that Bobby's been earning well and that he's lucky that he never had to pop his cherry by killing someone. Then Tony does some more staring.

Pretty soon the 4 of them are drunk and playing Monopoly. After a brief discussion about whether or not the Chance and Community chest money is supposed to be collected by the person who lands on Free Parking, a drunken Tony starts making fun of Janice and Bobby gets pissed. Tony crosses the line when Janice lands on Boardwalk and he stars singing about how she spent her summers sucking cock under the boardwalk (No doubt). Bobby loses it and slugs Tony soon the two of them are in a major throwdown that Bobby is clearly winning until the two women break it up and they stumble off to bed.

Next day Tony does some more staring, this time sitting on the dock with a black eye and fat lip. We can tell he's pissed for getting his ass kicked but he's not vindictive so nothing will come of it. Anyway, they tell the ladies that they're meeting some guys to play golf. They really mean meeting some crooked Canucks to buy illegal prescription drugs to sell back home. During the conversation one of the Canadiens gets a call from his daughter about how her ex won't leave her alone. Tony says he'll take care of it if they lower their price and they agree. Obviously still mad he tells Bobby to take care of it.

Tony and Carmella leave the next day and head back to Jersey. We then see Bobby pack a bag and tell Janice he's got business to take care of. In the next scene we watch Bobby follow a young guy in the basement laundry room and pop 2 shots in his chest and 1 in his head. He's broken his cherry. The episode ends with Bobby returning to the Lake house and holding his daughter as he does some staring of his own.
