Melfi's office. Tony, who's still pretty bruised and battered about the face, talks about how hard Christopher's death has been. Melfi offers some platitudes. Tony pauses, and then kind of grins and says, "This is bullshit." He goes on to say that he's relieved, because Christopher was "a tremendous drag on [his] emotions, thinking about the future." He saw Christopher as potentially ratting him out to the FBI, due to his personality and drug use, and that he considered Christopher "the biggest blunder of [his] career." Melfi is silent. Tony happily goes on to say that he didn't consider Christopher a relative, a friend, or someone he could count on. Then Tony pulls out the big guns and admits that he's murdered friends and relatives before, and even names names: "My cousin Tony, my best friend, Puss, but this?"
Flash to Tony snorting himself awake. Damn, I thought that scene was legit until the very end when he started naming names. Tony rolls over and asks Carm worriedly if he was talking in his sleep. She says he wasn't, and turns on the TV, since she can't sleep either. She starts watching Katharine Hepburn being interviewed by Dick Cavett, talking about how she used to be a terrible actor and people caught on, probably referring to how Tony is trying to pull off the acting job of his life, convincing people he's grief-stricken. I do wonder how the writing staff finds these television clips that comment on the action so perfectly.
Tony limps downstairs and grabs a mug to get himself some coffee. He notices that the mug has the Cleaver logo on it, so he limps out back and heaves the mug into the weeds behind his yard.
Later, Tony asks Carm to make him a cappuccino. Carm comments that it's hard not to think of Christopher as a child. Tony muses that Caitlin looks like her father, which might not be so great later, with "that schnozz." Carm thinks lots of women thought Christopher was hot, and then she gets upset about her suspicions regarding Christopher and Ade. Tony is silent. Carm acknowledges that Chrissy was violent, but that he loved Ade and would never kill her. She wonders why we are so quick to blame. Tony takes her hand and brings up the night he called her to give her the bad news. He says carefully that he thought he picked up "a twinge of relief" when she heard of Christopher's death. Carm denies it at first, but then she starts sobbing and says that maybe she was relieved...that it wasn't Tony who was killed. She remembers that when Tony got shot, Christopher comforted her. Tony tells Carm that a giant tree branch (it wasn't really giant) came through the car window and hit the baby's carseat, meaning that Caitlin would have been killed were she in the car. Man, Tony is really trying to make himself feel like he did the right thing. Carmela stands up and walks away, upset.
