Storyline

Tony is in a coma in hospital after being shot by Uncle Junior who, with his deteriorating dementia, thought he was an intruder. Doctors are pessimistic and have told Carmela to prepare for the worse. Syl takes temporary charge of the family and with Tony's poor prognosis, sees himself as his natural heir. Carmela, Meadow, a somewhat reluctant AJ and several captains maintain a 24 hour vigil. As for Tony, he dreams he is a businessman on a trip to California. Unfortunately, he seems to have taken someones briefcase and wallet by mistake. He has no identification and only a small amount of cash on him. As a result of the mix-up everyone thinks he someone by the name of Finnerty, including two Tibetan monks who are dissatisfied with the heating and cooling system he sold them. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The credits do not mention the actress providing the voice of Tony's wife while in his coma, though the writers have stated the voice is of a generic New Jersey actress and not intended to be anyone previously featured on the series. Here on IMDB, Wendy Hammers is credited as the "fake Carmella". See more »

2006 Season - Episode 2
20 March 2006 | by slamADMSee all my reviews

Many hardcore fans dislike the dreams that frequent the Sopranos, but I find them interesting and provocative. Tony's coma/dream didn't disappoint. It raised many questions:

  • A.J. has proved himself an aimless coward, but showed uncharacteristic conviction when he vowed to murder his grandfather (while telling his mother he flunked out of school). Is he going into the family business ? -Was the dream Tony's subconsious wish that he was a WASP middle class schlubb ? - How will the outfit adjust to Silvio as the new boss ? Will they lose street cred or come out of their corner swinging ? - Was this Edie Falco's greatest episode in the entire show ?
