I thought this might have been one of the best endings to an episode that I can remember. Uncle June's failure to get with Johnny Boy's mistress, him almost crying when talking about how he has no children, all depressed. And then Tony sticking up for his father at the end scene, even lying about how beautiful his goomar was, and that dead look in his eyes as he takes another shot. In many ways it captured tony's problems with masculinity. He feels that he has to be top dog to get anything good in the world, that he has to be evil or "alpha" or whatever. The alternate route, finding his morality, or even lessening up the macho act, could lead to tony being "joe-jerk off", and not the man he wants to be. It's a dillema that many men face in regards to women, and life in general. If anyone has any thoughts i'd love to discuss it.
