S5 Episode 12: Long Term Parking

At the FBI's field office, Walter, an agent scanning surveillance video, notices something and has Agent Sanseverino take a look. On the tape, Adriana emerges from the back of Crazy Horse, carrying a small plastic bag. She locks up the club for the night, places the bag in the garbage Dumpster and heads for her car. Reconsidering, Adriana retrieves the bag, puts it in the trunk of her car and drives away.

In New York, Tony meets with Johnny Sack where the topic of discussion is the fate of Tony Blundetto. Tony tells Johnny that he doesn't know where his cousin is, but Johnny is unappeased; he wants Tony B. for the killings of Joe Peeps and Billy Leotardo.

Later Tony and Carmela have decided to reconcile. But before Carmela will allow Tony under her roof, she wants assurance that Tony will be faithful. In addition, Carmela wants a creative project in her life. She asks him for $600,000 to purchase a piece of land to build a house. Tony agrees and shortly after moves back home where, at dinner with Carmela and A.J., he makes a champagne toast: "To the people I love. Nothing else matters."

But Tony still has to decide what to do about his loved one who's on the lam. Despite the untenable position in which Tony B. has put him, Tony S. remains protective of him. When his cousin phones him one night, Tony agrees to look after his children and then confesses that he's always felt responsible for Tony B.'s incarceration. He then has the call traced and discovers that his cousin is hiding out in upstate New York, probably at Uncle Pat's vacant farmhouse.

Meanwhile, the FBI learns that the plastic bag in the surveillance video contained evidence of a murder. A drug dealer stabbed a dissatisfied customer in Adriana's office. Threatened with a prison sentence of 25 years for obstructing an investigation, Adriana offers as a last resort to try and get Christopher to turn against the Family.

After a long, at times violent, confrontation, Christopher finally seems ready to join Adriana in witness protection. But then he goes out to get cigarettes. Hours later, Tony calls telling Adriana that Christopher, who's started drinking again, has attempted suicide and that Silvio is on his way to take her to the hospital. It soon becomes apparent that Tony lied.

Instead of going to the hospital, Silvio drives Adriana to a secluded spot in the woods and fires two bullets into her as she attempts to crawl away.

Shortly after, Tony meets Johnny Sack beside the East River. Johnny is now the undisputed boss of New York. When Tony initially accedes to Tony B.'s execution but asks to be allowed to handle it himself, Johnny flatly refuses.

He similarly rebuffs Tony's request that the death be quick. Ultimately, Tony decides not to surrender his cousin to Johnny and angrily drives away.
