how you can get lost in the brilliance

as great as last night's "sopranos" episode was - and how mesmerizing and engaging that scene outside the family reunion was, how we were all pining for tony - what can easily get lost is how great of an actress edie falco is.

especially the scene with dr. melfi. if you get a chance to watch it again, just check out how vulnerable she sits in the chair, feet pointing inward, shoulders slumped, as compact as possible. it's a subtle thing. but it's a big thing.

the point is, beyond how fantastic the writing and directing and acting has been this season - and it's never been higher - she's been the brightest of all the stars.

and that's saying something deep.

edie falco's performance as she wept at tony's bedside was also mesmerizing. she's got the Golden Globe in the bag.
it's been such an intense three episodes, i can't even imagine what the next 8 hold for us. fucking awesome season. i get chills every episode. i love david chase.
