Janice and her nanny take Domenica to Uncle Junior's new digs: a state facility. Janice leaves the baby with the nanny and walks into the room where Uncle Junior is sitting with a visitor, Uncle Pat. Junior thinks Janice is Livia. Janice corrects him and shows Junior a picture of Nica. He looks at the photo and thinks it's a picture of Janice. He says, "Sweet as she looks, she left my stove on on purpose, put the flame out with a wet dishrag. I caught her." I know David Chase is probably tired of this world by now, but I really want a prequel to the show. That scene is already written! He only needs, like, two more hours of material! Janice gingerly approaches...okay, she doesn't gingerly approach. She just blurts out, "Bobby's dead." Junior thinks she's talking about Bobby Kennedy and says, "Ambassador Hotel." Janice explains that she means Bobby Baccalieri, and sobs, "I'm a widow now." Well, at least it's not all about Janice.
Satriale's. Uncle Pat tells Tony that Janice is after Uncle Junior's money. Tony has no interest in Junior's problems, and in fact would be happy if Junior rotted in the state facility.
AJ visits a female counselor who is clearly the blonde version of Melfi, right down the legs crossed at the knee and soft voice. AJ says he can't get a job because he doesn't have a car, so he needs to get a bus schedule. Yeah, they keep those under lock and key. Really tough to find, those bus schedules. AJ adds that he feels cleansed somehow. Not Melfi suggests he was happy to see the SUV go because of its environmental impact, but AJ almost giggles and says the huge fireball was actually pretty cool, and he narrowly escaped death. Boys love when shit blows up.
Paulie walks into the empty Bing during off-duty hours. He yells for Carlo, who doesn't respond. I was so sure this was a setup, and Paulie was about to get ambushed. Paulie goes into the back room and calls Tony to tell him Carlo didn't show up for their meeting with Butchie, and he's not answering his phones. Tony's face falls and he says he'll call back on a clean phone. Paulie's phone rings ("Cecelia" by Paul Simon – did Paulie and I go to college together?) and Tony asks what Paulie thinks happened. Paulie suspects that Butchie whacked Carlo. Tony waits until Carmela is out of the room and says that Carlo might have flipped. Paulie connects the dots and says that Jason Gervasi, Carlo's son, got arrested yesterday for selling ecstasy. So the idea is that Carlo flipped to cut a deal for his son, yeah? Maybe Tony should have been nicer to him when he wanted to talk about The Twilight Zone.
