episode cast Edit

In an effort toward reconciliation, Tony brings Carmella to a property (named "Whitecaps" by a kitchy sign mounted by the front door) in Seaside Heights, NJ that he has heard is on the market with a nervous seller and buyers who may not qualify for a mortgage. At first Carmella is against Tony trying to muscle into the deal, but eventually agrees, justifying it to herself and Tony as "just a bigger emerald ring", compensation for having to endure Tony's infidelities. The family is ecstatic and all seems headed to a happy ending until Tony's emotionally unstable ex mistress calls the house and talks to both AJ and Carmella, sending Carmella into a fit of rage that ends with her throwing Tony out of the house and demanding a divorce.
