Episode recap[edit]

As Junior Soprano's trial concludes, Eugene Pontecorvo and Dogsy find juror Danny Scalercio while he is out shopping with his son and intimidate him.

While playing golf, Little Carmine and Johnny Sack try to convince Carmine, Sr. to reduce his demands in his dispute with Tony over the HUD scheme. Carmine Sr., who even refuses to consider the Jersey gangsters a "family," uncharacteristically becomes angry, smashes his golf club and refuses to back down. Sack meets with Tony and Silvio at Carmine's new restaurant and offers a minor compromise; Tony, angry in part because Carmine will not deal with him face-to-face, rejects it immediately and later orders that the restaurant be vandalized.

Carmine uses his union influence to shut down work at the disputed project, the Esplanade. Tony decides to wait the dispute out, expecting the financial losses on both sides will quickly force Carmine into a compromise. Johnny Sack meets with Tony and raises the possibility of killing Carmine, surprising Tony.

In the Soprano household, Carmela and A.J. discuss a paper he is writing on Herman Melville's Billy Budd. Tony's callous behavior toward Carmela angers Furio, who has difficulty restraining himself when Tony calls his wife a "moody bitch." Tony remains oblivious of the growing romantic tension between Carmela and Furio. Carmela later visits Furio's house to discuss decorating, but a possible escalation of sexual tension is interrupted by one of her father's contractors.

Tony, Furio, and other members of the crew visit a Native American-owned casino in Connecticut. While most of the others carouse, Furio stands aloof. Later, as the drunken crew prepares to board the casino's helicopter for the flight home, Furio grabs Tony by the shirt front and appears barely able to restrain himself from shoving Tony into the spinning tail rotor. Furio tells the baffled Tony he was standing too close to the blades. The next day, Furio does not appear to pick up Tony when expected, and Carmela and Tony learn he has abruptly returned to Italy. Carmela and Rosalie Aprile have dinner at Nuovo Vesuvio. When Rosalie suggests Tony might have taken action against Furio, she becomes distraught and is later seen spending time crying alone.

Paulie Gualtieri's mother Nucci gets into a minor car crash - she is a backseat passenger when her friend Minn Matrone runs into a car in a parking lot. Paulie chides Minn at the emergency room where the women were brought; a doctor also asks her about her eyesight. Later, Paulie has lunch with Nucci, Minn, and another friend of hers, Cookie, and overhears Minn keeps her life savings in her home, under her mattress. After a rough-edged conversation with Silvio about his loyalty to the family reveals Tony's unhappiness with his declining financial contributions, Paulie runs into Carmine Sr. at a family wedding, only to learn that Johnny Sack has never informed the New York boss about his previous suggestions of a shift in loyalties, in fact he doesn't even know who he is. Deeply shocked, Paulie decides to steal Minn Matrone's cash to make up for his shortfall to Tony. When she appears unexpectedly to have been in the apartment the whole time during his burglary, she stumbles upon him in her bedroom, recognizing him. She threatens to call the police and then starts to scream. Paulie tackles her and suffocates her with a pillow. He then takes the large envelope of money to Tony.

A family dinner to meet Meadow's new boyfriend, Finn DeTrolio, at her shared apartment near Columbia, further dispirits Carmela. She gets involved in an argument about Billy Budd with Meadow and her roommates when she fiercely defends it as not having homosexual themes, as literary critic Leslie Fiedler and others interpret. Their annual mother-daughter birthday outing under the Eloise painting at the Plaza Hotel the next day turns quickly into hostile bickering. Carmela complains to Tony about her disagreements with Meadow. Meadow learns from A.J. about their mother's visits to Furio's home and her depression since he left. Tony later approaches his daughter getting ready for a skiing trip to Montréal for a candid talk about Carmela and reveals to a surprised Meadow he and Carmela both had couples counseling (at Dr. Melfi's) where he learned Carmela may be feeling "unfulfilled" and suggests Meadow that she treat her mother with more restraint. Meadow inquires if that is all Tony suspects, but, when he says yes, she does not reveal anything about Furio. Going to bed, Tony again converses with Carmela about Meadow, trying to make peace between them; when he asks his wife if seeing Meadow turning into a "smart, beautiful, independent woman" is not all she ever wanted, Carmela stares into a wall, seemingly deeply lost in thought, and then answers in an emotionless tone of voice, "Yes."

First appearance[edit]

  • Finn DeTrolio: Meadow's new boyfriend looking to go to dental school.

Deceased[edit]

  • Minn Matrone: suffocated by Paulie Walnuts after he attempted to steal her money and she caught him in the act.

Final appearance[edit]

  • "Eloise" marks the final appearance of the character Furio Giunta, a DiMeo/Soprano crime family soldier imported from Annalisa Zucca's Camorra family in Italy. Furio is only mentioned in future episodes.

Title reference[edit]

  • The title refers to the portrait, Eloise, at the Plaza Hotel, which is based on the books of the same name. Carmela and Meadow have a tradition, mentioned in the pilot episode, of eating lunch while seated in front of this painting.

  • The song played in the background of a scene between Silvio and Paulie is Metallica's cover of "The Small Hours" by Holocaust.
  • The song played at the Bada Bing office when Paulie gives Tony a large envelope of cash (after the murder and robbery of Minn Matrone) is "Real Fonky Time" by Dax Riders.
