So maybe you think that first-season Sopranos scene, when Tony garroted the witness-relocated turncoat while taking Meadow to visit colleges, was the show's most disturbing scene. Or maybe you were as disturbed as we were by his quick, cold asphyxiation of Christopher last week. Whatever your preference, last night's episode — How to Clean Practically Anything! The Little Italy beating! Bogdanovich and the water bottle! A.J. (poor A.J.)! — was one of the greats. And, argues New York critic Emily Nussbaum on Vulture, A.J.'s attempted suicide ranks as the show's single most disturbing scene yet. With only two episodes left, we hope they don't get much more disturbing.
