Carmela to Tony: "Everything comes to an end." True enough, Mrs. Sope, but on The Sopranos, the end comes sooner for some than others. Though for some the widely debated fourth season contained too much yakking instead of whacking, and an emphasis on domestic family over business Family, what critic James Agee once said of the Marx Brothers applies to The Sopranos: "The worst thing they might ever make would be better worth seeing than most other things I can think of." And in most respects, The Sopranos remains television's gold standard. The fourth season garnered 13 Emmy nominations, and subsequent best actor and actress wins for James Gandolfini and Edie Falco as Tony and Carmela, whose estrangement provides the season with its most powerful drama, as well as a win for Joe Pantoliano's psychopath Ralph. The season finale, "Whitecaps," was a long-time-coming episode, in which Carmela at last stands up to "toxic" Tony, and "Whoever Did This" was the season's--and one of the series'--most shocking episodes.

Other narrative threads include Christopher's (Emmy nominee Michael Imperioli) descent into heroin addiction, Uncle Junior's (Dominic Chianese) trial, an unrequited and potentially fatal attraction between Carmela and Tony's driver Furio, and a rude joke about Johnny Sack's wife that has potentially fatal implications. Other indelible moments include Christopher's girlfriend Adriana's projectile reaction to discovering that her new best friend is an undercover FBI agent in the episode "No Show," Janice giving Ralph a shove out of their relationship in "Christopher," and the classic "Quasimodo/Nostradamus" exchange in the season-opener, which garnered HBO's highest ratings to date. Freed from the understandably high expectations for the fourth season, heightened by the 16-month hiatus, these episodes can be better appreciated on their own considerable merits. They are pivotal chapters in television's most novel saga. --Donald Liebenson

Where the first season covered Tony's relationship with his mother and that relationship causing him to see a therapist; the second season went more along the lines of him as a brother; the third season was based on Tony and Carmela as parents and of course, this fourth season was highly focused on their marriage, all coming to an incredible head in the final episode.
I've heard several people say that the third and fourth seasons weren't as strong and as "biting" as the first two seasons, I couldn't disagree more. This fourth season is an extremely intense season and is just as dramatically compelling and enthralling as the previous three. Very few dramatic series can even compare to The Sopranos where it entertains on all levels, from gripping drama to dead pan humorous moments.
Combining the continued elements of extraordinary writing, superior direction and exceptional acting all make this fourth season another resounding success in the Sopranos series and a long wait until March of 2004 for the fifth season to kicks in.
Episode synopsises:
For all Debts Public and Private - A slowing economy has even effected even Tony's "thing" and Carmela is worried about the family's long term financial security and wishes to acquire some "traditional" investments; Tony gives Christopher a "gift" that he never would've expected; Junior is fretting over his upcoming trial and Adriana makes a dangerous new friend.

This show has done none of things that TV shows normally do at this point. ie. repeat itself, slip into formula, strain credibility ("jump the shark" as the popular saying goes), etc... I really don't know how Creator David Chase & company keep it up? Talent, creative freedom, and dedication, I suppose.
I didn't find this 4th season to be as emotionally devastating as the previous 3 (though it has its moments), but it is still very strong! The acting is, amazingly, better than it's ever been, and several episodes rank among the best ("The Weight," "Whoever Did This," "Whitecaps"). James Gandolfini gives Tony Soprano some his most compelling scenes yet, and in the x-tra long season finale, Edie Falco simply rises to new heights. Joe Pantoliano as Ralph Cifaretto, who surprised everyone by surviving the 3rd season, is back & provides some welcome wicked humor & hidden depths.
The finale is very satisfying, but several very important plot lines are left unresolved. We can only assume the 5th, and reportedly last, season will resolve them in some fashion. Regardless, the twists and turns involving Ralphie's new race horse Pie O' My, Chris' decent into heroin addiction, Carmela's attraction to one of her husband's deadly henchmen, Johnny Sack's love for his very heavy wife, and Tony's sometimes impulsive womanizing all pay off in wonderful & unexpeted ways.
The 5th season is eagerly awaited, to be sure. If it can match #4, it will be a strong finish indeed for this dark saga.

While the death count has steadily decreased in subsequent seasons, The Sopranos is not going soft, but rather evolving. In the first season, everything was put together. In number two, an emphasis was placed on Tony's business: busting out, poker games, scams, power struggles, traders, etc. In season 3, the series showed it is not prone to repetition. Instead of Ralph becoming another Richie, his ability to make money kept him alive.
Now the fourth and still not the last season. Seemingly every episode ended with an uncomfortable shot of Tony and Carmela alone together, but still apart: In bed with Carmela facing away, in the kitchen with Tony leaning on the couch, in the bathroom with Carmela in the tub. And after all this, Tony bought "Whitecaps", his way of saying that he wanted to keep his family together forever. But Carmela saw it as just "a bigger version of a diamond ring." As Dean Martin sings at the end of the finale, "It's because, my girl's right here."
Then the demise of Ralph, foreshadowed when Jonny Sack comments "I should have let Tony cut your head off last year." Ralph was kept around only because of money and when he hands Tony an envelope and says "At least I'm good for something," Tony can't help but agree. And when Ralph is being `silenced' by Tony in `Whoever Did This', Tony comments "She was a beautiful creature, what did she ever do to you?" It becomes hazy whether he is referring to Pie-O-My or Tracy when he sees her picture at the Bing. The "thousand incidents with that guy" finally catch up to Ralph.
By the end of the season, Tony has a business predicament that will likely be settled somehow in season 5. Tony has conspired with Carmine to kill Jonny Sack, and negotiated with Jonny to kill Carmine.

Upon its original airing, the fourth season of The Sopranos provoked a vocal and hostile response from the show's fans. Nothing happens, they would complain. The episodes wander aimlessly from one to the next. Plot lines are brought up and then dropped. Nobody gets whacked.

Viewers watching during its original airing can be excused for so thinking. Viewed one episode at a time, one week at a time, it was easy to feel dragged along. It is no secret that The Sopranos wasn't built to last and was never really intended to go on past three seasons; once its original conceit was used up, David Chase and the writers needed to find a new direction.

As a result, Season Four has no overarching plot lines, such as Tony's rivalries with Junior or Ritchie, or clearly delineated character arcs like the downfall of Jackie Jr. or Tony's doomed relationship with Gloria. Instead, much of the "mafia" story was dedicated to getting us better acquainted with the Soprano family's relationship with Johnny Sack, Carmine, and New York (storylines that pay off dividends in Season Five). Moreover, from the very first episode, "For All Debts Public and Private," Season Four has a sense of impending, post-9/11 dread; every week gave viewers the sense that something "big" was about to happen -- that Tony would discover Paulie "talking out of school," that the Feds would put the screws into Adrianna, that Carmela would consummate her flirtations with Furio -- but it never did. And when a major character did meet his untimely end, it came as an inevitability rather than a release. The buildup of tension that was never released undoubtedly led to the frustration of many viewers.
