This whole episode is a triumph: the way James Gandolfini is able to inhabit a different Tony is mesmerizing & you see in his performance how deep he’s able to go inside the character, how he & Chase have worked together to create this glorious, complex man. Every dream sequence in the series is eerie & spectacular, but this, Tony in his deepest sleep, is its best.
The song that ends the episode, Moby’s When It’s Cold I’d Like to Die with vocals by Mimi Goese (who sounds like Annie Lennox’s ghost) is the perfect melancholic accompaniment to the episode’s theme. The song begins with the line “Where were you when I was lonesome?” My heart breaks.
