Yeah, I know it’s not “really” a finale, but you know what I mean.
We’re left with very little in the way of cliffhangers. Besides Agent Harris’s warning about someone close to Tony being in danger, there’s almost no indication of what will happen in the remaining episodes. The possibility of a New York - Jersey war, the biggest potential plot point of the rest of the show, seems like it might be lessened by Tony’s talk to Phil.
I don’t know if I liked this episode very much. I think it was a bad way to end the year’s season. It resolved very little (besides Chris back on heroin which we ALL SAW COMING) and had little in the way of high drama or exciting action. Even the dialog seemed kind of awkward. The best thing about the episode, by far, was the fact that it started off with Carlo.
