Jack Massarone's construction company, which provides no-show jobs to Tony, is being picketed by black protesters, led by Reverend Herman James, Jr., demanding jobs for black workers. In return for payment by Massarone, Tony sends some thugs who brutally beat up the protesters. He and Reverend James are colluding, and they split the payment.
For the first time, Pussy is seen with his FBI handler, Skip Lipari. Skip is pressing for information, but Pussy stalls.
Tony visits Junior in jail. They argue: Junior tries to convince Tony that Livia had nothing to do with the hit on his life, and that he should make peace with her. Tony mocks him for being manipulated by Livia. Tony meets with Bobby "Bacala" Baccalieri, Junior's aide, and tells him that Junior will keep the title of boss, and will be permitted to "earn" on a "subsistence level"; the rest will be Tony's. Junior's release from prison on medical grounds is obtained, but he is placed under house arrest with an ankle monitor. Junior conducts business at his doctor's office, which cannot be bugged. At an ostensible appointment there, Junior tells Tony that the owner of Livia's former nursing home, Freddie Capuano, has been gossiping about him, Livia, and Tony. Capuano disappears; a state trooper finds his abandoned Cadillac, with his toupée lying nearby.
Janice continues to visit her mother in the hospital. They antagonize each other, but when Janice plays the old music that Livia loves, they bond for the first time in years. Livia speaks of the money she has hidden; she doesn't remember where. Tony contemptuously tells Janice they deserve each other; she can live with Livia in Livia's house when she leaves the hospital. During a visit to his grandmother, A.J. innocently mentions DNR. Questioning him, she realizes that Janice and Tony are considering a DNR instruction for her.
One evening Junior slips in the shower and is badly hurt. He speaks of his guilt to Tony and again urges him to make peace with Livia. He will not accept an ambulance but allows Tony to carry him to his car and drive him to the emergency room.
