Anyway technically Tony is underboss to Junior but now that Junior is out of the picture Tony would be boss and Sil would be consig/underboss. Also remember that Pauly is only a captain as of season 2 so hes not even that old of a capo.
What do you meen? That Paulie was bumped up to captain in season two?
I belive Paulie was already a captain and Tony bumped him up to underboss. This was at the Lou Costello memorial, when Furio arrived.
Tony said, you'r getting a bump, so if he was already a captain, what else would his title be if not underboss?
Remember, the pecking order was Tony, and Sil and Paulie together. Silvio remains consiglieri and naturally takes Tonys place when he was shot. The underboss is only a sort of middle management to make Tony safer.
Thats my theory at least :)
