Freshly waxed and buffed, Adriana arrives at the restaurant to find Lola, Special Agent Harris, and a woman who appears to be precisely what would have happened if Mare Winningham's younger sister had joined the FBI. The younger Winningham's name is actually Agent Sanseverino, but in keeping with this week's equine theme, I'm going to stick with "Mare." Despite the offer of a latte and a scone, Adriana remains hostile, opening with "Eat shit, Danielle, or whatever the fuck your name is." Mare, however, just wants to ask a series of badly dubbed questions about Christopher's whereabouts. This whole subplot was apparently re-written in ADR, so every time someone mentions a name, it sounds like the audio is coming from the next room. Adriana continues to protest that she knows nothing of value, and that Tony loves Christopher way too much to ever let anything bad happen to him. "He loved Pussy Bonpensiero," replies Mare. "Look what happened to him." She and Special Agent Harris rather sarcastically break the news that neither Pussy nor Richie Aprile is actually enjoying a new life in Arizona somewhere with Sammy Gravano. Then Lola stands up to leave, explaining that Mare will be Adriana's primary contact from this point forward. Then she adds, "And you know what we were talking about? About the little creatures? Good luck with that. I mean it." To me, Lola seemed pretty sincere on that line, and since they were looking at a book of little creature illustrations at the time the baby conversation occurred, it actually made more sense to me than it seems to have for some of our forum readers. Agent Harris tries to convince Adriana to make Tony her "area of focus," but Adriana being who she is, she ends up having to bolt to the bathroom to throw up again. Agent Harris smugly bites into his own scone, no doubt mentally thanking the writers for not staging another on-screen puke scene.
