Several years ago, I criticized Tony Soprano's long-suffering therapist, Dr. Jennifer Melfi, for giving her badfella client
the bum's rush as the HBO series ended. Melfi probably should never have taken on Tony in the first place for moral as well
as legal reasons. But, as Al Capone said about the rackets, once you're in, you're in, and there's no getting out. At first
hugely resistive, Tony had come to trust Melfi over several years, even benefit from her help. In this context, ejecting him
from treatment was callous and unethical.
