This season of The Sopranos
has been by and large exceptional, with only last week's episode being especially weak. If I have a complaint, it's the usual one, which is that it's taken Chase far too long to get to where we now are. Both the AJ and the Chris plotlines from tonight's episode could have happened at any time over the last few years; they're only happening now because this is when production considerations have dictated the show must end.
Also, that murder was really sloppy, and [SPOILER] was a known business associate of [SPOILER] and had been seen giving him public beatings on at least two other occasions. Additionally, given the Hollywood rag-sheet angle, I think this is one murder that would definitely be in the news. I hope it's followed up on; I'd like to see this be the incident that leads to a wrap-up of [SPOILER]'s storyline, and possibly even give direction to the end of the show as a whole.
