As usual, much of the trouble is sparked by the sort of domestic issues that in any other family but the Sopranos would be handled with calm and decorum. Now separated from wife Carmela (Edie Falco), suburbanite mob boss Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini) has begun to warm up to Adriana La Cerva (Drea de Matteo), little suspecting that she may soon become a stoolie for the Feds. Meanwhile, Carmela becomes involved with the guidance counselor for her son A.J. (Robert Iler), who seems poised to challenge his dad for family supremacy (though it may take a few years). As for Tony's extended family, his newly paroled cousin, Tony Blundetto (Steve Buscemi), proves to be yet another thorn in the side for Tony's nephew Christopher (Michael Imperioli), who already has enough problems trying to wean himself off a dangerous drug habit. Another of Tony's cousins, Johnny Sack (Vincent Curatola), hopes to take advantage of the death of Mafia don Carmine Lupertazzi to increase his own power base -- an attempt that Lupertazzi's son Little Carmine (Ray Abruzzo) fully intends to torpedo (in every sense of the word!), leading to a bloody turf war. And Tony's chief henchman Paulie Walnuts (Tony Sirico) is plagued by a mob functionary who has a bad habit of overstepping his bounds. This season's crop of 13 episodes comes to an end -- bada bing! -- with an unpleasant surprise for Tony Soprano, one that may force him into permanent exile. And as for the hapless Adriana La Cerva...is there any viewer in the U.S. who has not seen her (literally) terminal Sopranos appearance? Hal Erickson, RoviRead Less
