Good season opener, and [incredibly minor, obvious-when-you-think-about-it spoiler for next episode]
it'll be nice to get the obligatory dream episode out of the way early this season [/spoiler]
I wonder if Gino's inheritance/rat storyline was an abbreviated version of what they intended to do with Robert Funaro's character back when they briefly
made him a regular back in season there. Additionally, for once a Sopranos
anticlimax amused me rather than pissing me off; having Ray Curto the rat drop dead after all those years of waiting to see what would come of it (nothing, apparently) was just funny to me. Also, who on Tony's crew isn't a rat?
[potential spoiler] Speaking of Sopranos anticlimaxes, there's a rumor going around that the Russian from Pine Barrens will finally be back this year. Furio too.
I'll believe it when I see it.
PS: Note to self: Hanging yourself is brutal
. Don't do it.
