Furio comes over from Naples to join Tony's gang, and Artie gives him a
job as an immigration cover until his visa can be finalized. To make room
for the newcomer, Tony promotes Paulie to capo and Silvio to consigliere.
Pussy, however, is upset that he is being pushed aside, as Tony and
Paulie are deliberately excluding him from business talks. Chris,
meanwhile, is hitting ever bigger stumbling blocks with his
scriptwriting, and his emotional problems are only making things worse.
After a particularly violent episode, he throws his notes and tapes into
the trash. Unable to see Dr. Melfi, Tony unloads some of his problems on
Hersh, who reveals that Tony's father also suffered from fainting spells.
