Tommy makes a fatal mistake that might cost him the election. Tommy is also quite distracted with his mistress. Mike continues to have problems, but finds a way to deal with his issues with Freddie. Eileen is back home and things are better, but for how long?
I’m not surprised that Mike decided to get rid of Freddie. I’m just surprised that he didn’t just whack him. The transition of power is made easier by the way he took out Freddie.
I liked this episode. It looks like Tommy is going to have some problems in the election. The loss of the Latino vote will hurt him dearly. I also enjoyed how Mike god rid of Freddie. It was pretty cool, but Freddie will know that there was a rat.
Warning: Spoilers ahead.
