Advertisements Although you make some good points about his life crumbling down around him, I just don't see Tony doing this. The only time he might have comptemplated it was when he was on peyote or some other drug or if he goes on a drinking binge. His life is crumbling down, but I think he would go into action to deal with it.....just go on a killing spree of Phil and his cronies. Maybe even include Paulie on that list. The only way that he would go through with suicide is if he killed Carmella in a fit of rage....then he would realize that he would have no choice but take his life.
