Frankie and Geno open up their own club one day with the money from Geno's gambling ring. Reggie, unhappy about the duo stealing his best lady, pays Frank a visit. Geno beats Reggie down with a baseball bat and does some hard time for it.
Attempt at irony: Geno gets two years for beating down Reggie, an African-American. Reggie, gets six years for receiving the beat down. Later on, at Geno's welcome home party, Frank shoots Reggie, thinking he was about to attack his brother.
Those were the times: Everytime Frank or Geno says "Those were the times," to explain the blatant racism allowed in the '60s and '70s, the Gang interprets their tone as one that misses those times. "[sigh] Those were the times."
Oh, that's kind of like "The Godfather" but written terribly: After shooting Reggie, Frank has to lay low in South America for a while. Geno scores him a job as quality control for his Columbian drug cartel. Frank writes home to Shadynasty every day, but in an attempt to steal her from him, Geno destroys Frank's notes.
The story behind Danny Devito's baldness: At this point, I'm just crossing my fingers waiting for "The League" to come on. But homesick Frank has developed a cocaine addiction and in an attempt to
come back to Philly has to wade off his sickness. Upon returning to the states, he discovers his beloved club is turned into a drug den and his beloved Shadynasty has fallen for Geno and developed her own
Finally it's over: A flat ending to a VERY flat episode – Frank and Geno, amidst choking each other out, go to try one last hail-mary play for Shadynasty, who they find at the airport getting ready to leave. Shadynasty, who has not aged well at all and put on about 50 lbs from the flashbacks – is about to leave
on a plane with her mystery lover.
Grossly predictable moment in 3…2…1…: Her mystery lover is REGGIE, and guess what kids, Reggie gets arrested by TSA for doing nothing. A flat ending for a flat episode, but in hindsight — if I were to get arrested by any governing authority, I'd never let the TSA take me alive, that's like getting arrested by your little brother.
