Re: Last season of the Sapranos!
Phil can't take over Jersey. He's part of the NYC family. I mean, if they want to keep the show realistic Phil will stay in NY and continue to fill in as street boss for Johnny Sack while he's doing 15 years. Normal protocal. Plus, Phil's hated in NJ and not just by Tony. It would end up like the real-life John Gotti vs Paul Castellano situation. Castellano was hated in many cirles when he took over as boss and he ended up dead in front of Sparks Steakhouse in downtown Manhattan.
While Silvio taking over is much more likely compared to Phil taking over, we already saw what happened to him when he became street boss while Tony was in the hospital. He couldn't handle the responsibilities and he eventually ended up in the hospital with asthma attacks brought on by stress. The guy panicked when having to deal with the day to day issues Tony has to put up with as the Capo di Tutti Capi of NJ.
It will be interesting to see how things pan out. I'm pumped for these last nine episodes.
