Episode Info

Accomplished character actress Annabella Sciorra joins the cast of this popular crime series. As Thanksgiving approaches, New Jersey mob boss Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini) deals with the fallout of his beating his garbage business subordinate Ralph Cifaretto (Joe Pantoliano). A violation of the Mafia code, Tony's now obliged to either kill Ralph or apologize, but finds himself loathe to do either -- and instead embarks on a torrid affair with a beautiful but troubled Mercedes Benz dealership sales rep, Gloria Trillo (Sciorra). In the meantime, Tony's daughter Meadow (Jamie-Lynn Sigler) has begun dating shiftless Jackie Aprile Jr. (Jason Cerbone), the wannabe gangster son of Tony's one-time boss. While Jackie Jr.'s mother (Sharon Angela) is thrilled at the union, Tony and his wife Carmela (Edie Falco) are less enthused about the young man's questionable prospects. The holidays bring resolution to at least one of Tony's problems: when a Soprano family crew boss dies unexpectedly, Tony's able to heal the rift with Ralph by promoting him to captain, a position of authority Cifaretto has long craved.
