Rather than seeking the top position himself, Tony supports Junior's claim
to authority, in the hopes of becoming the power behind the throne. As the
new Boss, however, Junior soon begins canceling old deals and claiming a
bigger stake of everyone's action, prompting the other capos to pressure
Tony to do something about his uncle. Junior's prominent position catches
the attention of the FBI, who place him at the head of their watch list.
At home, Tony's problems are only increasing, as his growing feelings for
Dr. Melfi, combined with his respect for her capabilities, are causing him
to be impotent with his wife. Carmela senses that her hold on her husband
may be slipping, and insists that Tony let her be his emotional support.
