This show is on another level of darkness after Furio departs. Upon many rewatches, I’ve been trying to determine what exactly was causing things to shift for the worst, but Furio is one of the biggest reasons to me.

His character provided a sense of comfort, almost similar to how things were when Puss was still alive. He got shyt done, and despite his cold-hearted ways of getting these things done, he still had a fun, loving personality in the end. You also had Ralphie who committed many vile acts, was despised by most in the crew, but was still the highest earner. These two guys departing broke the stabilization of the crew and it’s just never the same afterwards.

Holy shyt what a good catch. A lot of the extras ended up pretty big actors. The white boy Christopher shoots in the foot is in Boardwalk Empire, Chicago PD, Hurt Locker, Ray Donovan. Paul Dano is one of Aj’s best friends and Lady Gaga is in there for one episode playing one of Ajs homegirls

Michael B. Jordan is one of the kids chasing Tony in a flashback scene

That's an interesting perspective. To me I thought the end was due to Tony's best $$$ earners getting taken out. Initially when Tony took over it seemed like everyone was happy because they were getting all these scores, money was flowing in, etc. Later on the big money started coming from specific capos. Ralph was a piece of shyt but his rise to capo and subsequent tenure as capo was very lucrative for Tony. The money was flowing in, Tony was happy...and New York was very happy. Outside of the beef over the joke about Johnny Sack's wife, that was a pretty stable period due to the money.

Then after Ralph got wacked, Vito became the money guy. He was close to Phil via family so the New York connection was strong, and he was doing big things with all the construction shyt. After Tony got shot and was in the coma, it was Vito who seemed like the most effective member of the family (besides Silvio), and he even suggested that he could become a boss if he lost weight. Of course the gay shyt took him out and damaged the New York ties, and the rest is history.

I like the Furio mention because you're right, he provided a level of competence. p*ssy and Paulie never seemed like movers and shakers, money wise for Tony. Furio was getting shyt done. Just seems like in the end, the most competent guys were dead or in exile.

The show was always about Tony. After Tony found out about Furio and Carm everything went downhill in Tony's life and he became paranoid, angry, cynical, etc.

not having Furio & Chris for the war against NY put the crew down by 20 5 mins into the game...shyt Eugene too

Tony really drove away everyone who would've put in work for his ungrateful ass
