Chris' overkill

I just realized why Chris shot Dino Zerilli two more times when he was already dead. Until now I'd thought that it was just done to look "cool", which struck me as odd because The Sopranos never goes out of its way just to look cool. It makes sense now - this was one episode after the incident with the Russian, who got back up and kept running after Paulie plugged him in the head. So Chris isn't taking any chances with that shit anymore, he's making sure the dead stay dead.
Taps, lights out, 2200 hours. What's missing? Give up? Television.

Re: Chris' overkill

I understood it as a personality thing. We don't see Chris doing a lot of the executions, but times we do, he always makes sure the guy is really dead (remember Mikey Palmice when he went to go try out his new running shoes? He put his entire clip into him).
