While the gang begins to turn on itself, Tony finds himself at the threshold, while Christopher gives another try to enter the movie business, however this time as a producer rather than a screenwriter.

Tony is still comatose and if anything, his condition is deteriorating. The doctor's are trying to control a fever-causing infection and Carmela is increasingly worried, if that's possible. The strain of leading the family and constantly settling disputes among the captains is affecting Syl whose asthma is acting up. He orders Paulie and Vito to each give Carmela $100,000 as Tony's share of a recent big score. They both hold off waiting to see if Tony lives or dies. Vito sees himself as Tony natural successor and starts to prepare the way. Bobby Bacala and Christopher learn what AJ has been planning. As for Tony, his dream continues where he is mistaken for someone by the name of Finnerty. When he sees a poster announcing a Finnerty family reunion, he drops by only to find a familiar face as the doorman who urges him to go inside the brightly lit house where everyone is waiting for him.

When Carmela goes into AJ's room to yell at him for talking to the media, the bedside clock reads 10:36 PM, when Bobby goes over to Silvio's house to discuss business, Silvio remarks "this better be important" and tells Bobby "it's 9:30 at night"... this was after Carmela yelled at AJ, so at the very least the time should of been 10:36 PM or a little after.

Paulie 'Walnuts' Gualtieri: [Talking to Tony while Tony's in a coma] I've got to wear a jock, the doctor says it will help keep my testes elevated, of course it'd be a lot worse. They gave me an ultrasound, there's no rupture. The good news is, I did it when I made a big score in business and I saw a little action.

Not buying Tim Daly
7 February 2019 | by jodi-44528See all my reviews

This was a good episode, but I am just not buying Tim Daly as a drug addict. Don't get me wrong, I love this guy as an actor, but he's just not convincing in this role.

I loved Edie Falco in the last couple of episodes. I know why she went back to Tony, and it does seem like they're both trying to make their marriage better. But her reactions were real, with her husband in the hospital, most likely dying. And the fact that she looked awful, which is true to life. I could definitely sympathize with her trauma. I found myself crying along with her.
