Death Becomes Him

Now, I know what you're thinking. By the title, you're assuming Vincenzo bit the bullet. But I assure you, our young mafioso is still alive and kicking. But in this episode, Vinnie learns that death is a numbing fact of the mafia life, and he soon takes to it like a fish to water.

Vinnie has been ordered by the family to knock off his first enemy for many reasons. One, to send a message to the Detroit mob. Essentially when you mess with New York, you mess with death. Two, the only way to become a made man is by making your bones. That means you have to do an authorized hit. If you're a fan of Mafiosi, you might have picked up on the fact that Vincenzo has been climbing the ladder on his brains, not brawn, and though the thought of taking out a major crime boss has his stomach in knots, he knows it's the only way to make it in this family...and to stay alive. For all you Sopranos, Scarface, and Godfather fans, Don Paranzano says this one is for you!
