Re: Junior: 'Manus manum lavat ...'

<blockquote>Quote:<hr>In any event, didn't Melfi have a session with her shrink in which he asked if Tony had come to grips with the shooting?

This is right on target. Melfi tells Elliott that Tony's silence about the shooting isn't omerta, but rather 'something else'' and that it's just a matter of time before he blows.

In some ways I feel as if Jr.'s lack of screentime and the overall lack of substantive discussion about the shooting among characters (i think there was only one direct reference to it in a melfi-tony session?) HAUNTS the entire first part of the season.
I guess it's possible that Dominic Chianese is sick (I hope not) but wouldn't that be in the news?
I suspect his absence is completely intentional, but to what end?!?
Tony's silence on Jr. is deafening.
