Walter is a captain of industry with a problem: He can’t sleep, and he needs a quick fix. Is it because he’s worried about his too-perfect daughter, working in a women’s clinic in Rwanda? Or is this about the scandal (product recall, or something more personal?) that the “lady reporter” at the Times won’t drop? Before we find out, Walter’s felled by one of the anxiety attacks he seems to have forgotten to tell Paul about. Unless there’s a surprise coming, Walter is just John Mahoney as Tony Soprano, minus the cold cuts and the mob.
