Sopranos - Episode 73 - Johnny Cakes
The highlight of this week's episode was the amazing scene between Tony and A.J. Robert Iler, the actor who plays A.J. is developing some really excellent acting chops. This episode was really his episode and he ran with it. The subtlety of his performance was touching. You can really feel his conflict: a boy loves his distant and dangerous father and wants to gain his love by being more like him but he also hates him. He hates him for the life that he's been forced to live as the son of a kingpin. I hope we see more of him for the rest of the season.
