Ranking Tony Soprano’s Most Revealing Moments With Dr. Melfi

Features Writer


The life of Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini) was the very definition of complicated, and with him through it all (well, most of it, anyway), was his therapist, Dr. Jennifer Melfi (Lorraine Bracco). A soft-spoken, level-headed psychiatrist whose relationship with Tony was at the very core of The Sopranos (available to stream anytime on HBO Now), she was able to help him confront some very difficult truths about himself in a way that no one else could have.

As showrunner David Chase once explained, the core of The Sopranos’ story was “a man goes to his therapist,” and, like he did with the show’s elaborate dream sequences, he put tremendous importance on the unique relationship that these two characters developed. Here’s a ranked look back at some of the most revealing moments that he had inside Dr. Melfi’s office.
