(and 18x13, and 18x14, and 18x11. Let’s just say it’s a multi-episode tag, spanning the entirety of S18, because I wanted to make up for the ones I didn’t write all season long. Inspired by the messy schedule, by Sonny’s temper, by Barba’s secret, and by my ability to see Barisi in everything. 16.4K.)
Note: This is a 3-part story. 3 mini-episode tags, rolled into one.Each “part” of the story takes place after each of the last 3 episodes, except I’m tackling them in their intended order, namely: 1) Know It All (18x15, with the reveal of Barba’s secret) 2) Genes (18x13, with Sonny’s subsequent outburst) and 3) Net Worth (18x14, with a happy Sonny doing a crossword puzzle). And I’m also heavily referencing
Great Expectations (18x11, with the reveal about Sonny’s past).
Sonny braces himself before he enters Barba’s office.
It’s been a while.
He doesn’t know which Barba he’ll encounter. Worse
than that, he doesn’t know which Sonny he’ll be.
Sonny swears there only used to be one of him. One Sonny,
for all seasons.
