S3:E2 - Proshai, Livushka

Gavin and Hannibal reflect on the poignant yet unsentimental way that The Sopranos chooses to address the passing of Nancy Marchand. This episode is beautifully crafted from a number of angles, with further allusions to Shakespeare, hilarious observations about the hypocrisy of mourners, and the introduction of Ralph Cifaretto, portrayed by the iconic Joe Pantoliano.
