If so, I hope Janice gets so distraught that she puts a bullet into her brain. She just ruins the whole series for me.
That angle is intriguing. When meeting with the Canadians, Bobby said something that I believe was meant to be a clue or one of Chase's wild goose chases. He said something to the effect, "Take a child from his mother? What kind of a person could do that?". I think the answer is, a person who's mother abandoned them, i.e. Janice's child Harpo (Hal).
My questions are:
In Janice's biography on HBO, they say she married a French-Canadian named Eugene. Why is his last never never mentioned?
In Season 5, Episode 62 "Cold Cuts", Tony taunts Janice with the remark, "What's French-Canadian for 'I grew up without a mother?". Was that remark planted for a later purpose?
In Soprano Home Movies credits, they list the name of the kid Bobby shot as "Rene LeCours", played by Marc Bonan. Why did they bother to list his first and last name? Why not "the kid Bobby shot. Nobody mentioned his name during the show.
The kid Marc Bonan who played Rene LeCours. He looks Italian, no? (Although his father was an Egyptian Jew and his Mother was Romanian.) He could pass for an offspring of one of the Turturros. And they spent a lot of time teasing out his hair so it looked frizzy during a very long close up of him. Was that so everybody could see a family resemblance in him? Why this kid? My father's family was from Quebec and none of them look like this kid. Very a-typical French Canadian.
In the Soprano Family tree in Answers Please, they have Harpo as being born in 1982, so he'd be approx. 25 years old. This Bonan kid is 27. Close enough?
