And in the role of Fredo . . .

seems to be AJ Soprano. AJ's thinking he can avenge dear old dad is really not going to end well. (That's Fredo (as in Corleone) not Frodo (as in Baggins) if you are confused by the reference.) Yet the contrasts between the Godfather and the Sopranos is actually quite poignant. Remember that after Vito was unsuccessfully attacked, Michael came into his own (for better or (more likely) worse) and avenged his father. That AJ is looking for revenge against his incompetent uncle (as opposed to the Turk and a crooked police captain) just starts to show the differences b/w the two oustanding epics.

Some other great moments from last night's episode:

1. Truly an amazing performance last night by Edie Falco--her pain and love for Tony were never more obvious or better acted.

2. Vito's comments that Eugune (the hit man) might have killed himself because he was a closeted homosexual was great psychology considering Vito's dark secret. I feel this will not stay secret much longer and Vito will not be having a pleasant retirement.

3. Tony's latest dream. Is it purgatory? Is it an alternate world? Is the name Kevin Finnery (sounds like infinity or Infiniti as the bar patron pointed out) great? Have we now entered the Odyssey where Tony must reclaim his identity in order to return from the netherworld--I think so. "I mean who am I?" --Tony Soprano. "I am no one." --Odysseus. The lights; the helicopter; the commercial; the buddhist monks. Too much!

Until next week . . .

I have to second that review of Edie Falco's performance in Sunday's episode. She made the episode gut-wrenching.
