He fought with her about Bobby not long before he was gunned down, and Bobby did get into a fistfight w/ him. It wouldn't be hard for that crazy bitch to assume he had something to do with it, and we all know she is capable of killing someone she "loves"(Richie Aprile). Just food for thought.
It’s funny how Janice is a “crazy bitch” but Paulie and Sil and Chris and Ralph (and even Tony) are – by implied but unspoken 'reverence' - the ‘pillars of exemplary manhood’ in mafiadom.
she doesn’t kill Tony, and I don't believe she will. But, even if she did, how would this killing - in the rarefied scenario of this series -be any different from any other that has already gone down? After all, she is
"her father's daughter" as much as Tony is his son.
I really think that some of the views expressed around here regarding Janice (and 'crazy bitch' is one of the milder ones) go way overboard in assessing this character. Yes, she killed Richie, and don’t you think that some wives that have been slapped and kicked around mercilessly by their husbands (in those 'domestic disputes' ) have sometimes thought of the same thing? And they weren't brought up in a household of crime and don't/didn't have Johnny Soprano for a father.
Janice didn't need much prompting though, as neither Chris nor Paulie did when they murdered that restaurant waiter, or Ralph, when he killed with his bare hands that pitiful BB dancer.
Janice has had to make her own way in life, saddled (as Tony) with a background that wouldn't portend success in any 'normal' sense. Yes, she made some bad choices and has done some really
goofy, and often criminal things (so what else is new?). Yet, I admire her spunk and determination to live life as best she
knows how. This I would suppose is not easy under any circumstances when being a "2nd. class person", i.e., a female, in Mafiadom.
