This week on Pod Yourself A Gun, the internet’s first and only Sopranos rewatch podcast , we’re going back 20 years and one month to March 12, 2000, the premiere of “From Where To Eternity,” episode 9 of season 2 (209) of the Sopranos. Helping us discuss, we have Emily Fleming from Good Mythical Morning.
Written by Michael Imperioli, “From Where To Eternity” sees Christopher waking up from his coma after being shot by Sean Gismonte and Matt Bevilacqua, having been clinically dead for an entire minute. Chrissy claims to have seen a vision of hell, which is actually an Irish bar called “The Emerald Piper,” where every day is St. Patrick’s Day and the Irish win every bet. Meanwhile, Carmela hears about Ralphie Rutoldo’s Brazilian goomad and wants Tony to get a vasectomy, and Pauly has his own run-in with the supernatural, thanks to a psychic and later a priest. Later, Tony and Big Pussy decide what to do with Matt Bevilacqua.
In a bit of life imitating art, Lillo Brancato Jr., who played Matt Bevilacqua, was later involved in a botched burglary of his own in which an off-duty police officer was killed. Brancato spent four years in prison and is apparently back to acting.
Anyway, we play all your favorite segments, from Bada B Stories to It’s The 90s, and Malapropism Corner to Da Real Gangsta. We hope you enjoy it, and as always, if you don’t, va fongool. Please don’t forget to leave us a five star review on Apple Podcasts, you make a you mama so a proud.
