We finally got a chance to watch last week's episode and came to a
Kind of like The Godfather's infamous baptism scene in which Michael Corleone is taking part in the ceremony in a Catholic Church, no? The scene is inter-cut with scenes of the enemies of the Corleone family getting whacked one by one, and is probably one of the most famous scenes in film history (if not history, period.)
This has got to be intentional; how many of you picked up on The Godfather reference?
We were correct in one regard, it seems (unless they pull another rabbit out of the hat).
We've said from the beginning the whole point of this season was to bury Natalie Guercio because she made Renee Graziano look bad last season. As we wrote:
NOTE: We believe Renee did poorly in show testing and that is probably why she's been promoting herself nonstop since the end of season four (it also certainly helps if your sister is, like, the show creator). The current season will be devoted to repairing Renee's image as a raving drug addicted psychotic.... In fact they appear to be loading the cast with anyone they can get their hands on as long as they kiss Renee's ass... (and apparently, we add now, they got Nat D. to play Renee's Luca Brasi.... yes, we know Brasi was killed before he could avenge his Don, but hey we're taking some liberties here, okay?)
Not "it looks like" or "it appears that".... Rather, the simple declarative statement that Guercio is going to learn this lesson the hard way.
We'll find out if we were right about this tonight, but judging by the video, we were on the money.... We still, however, hope the show proves us wrong about this because we love the smokin' Nat Guercio....
So.... how many of you picked up on The Godfather reference?
