After the assasination on Tony failed, Tony decided to get rid of both Charles Signore and Mikey Palmice in order to cut Junior's ability of attempting another hit on him. Mikey Palmice was killed after being chased down and shot by Chris and Paulie in the woods while he was out jogging.
Once it was confirmed that Junior and Mikey organized the failed hit on Tony, the sentiment was that Junior would want to finish what he started. At this point, Tony decided to retaliate. The thought was that Chucky would be the most likely person to put things into motion the next time around. As such, he was taken by surprise at a marina, while in his small boat, and killed personally by Tony Soprano.
Tony grew suspicious of Jimmy shortly after he was busted in 1999. He thought he was released a little too promptly after his arrest. Also, Jimmy began asking Tony, among others, for repeated details of their criminal dealings. Although it was never officially confirmed, his odd behavior was enough for Tony and others to think he was wearing a wire. As such, Uncle Junior sanctioned a hit on Jimmy. Silvio and Chris carried out the hit.

Junior eventually rewarded him by putting him in charge of his loan shark operation during the later part of his prosecution.
Furio was the only member of Tony's crew born in Italy. Tony bargained with Italian mob boss Annalisa Zucca for Furio to come to New Jersey to work for him as part of an international car-theft operation. Tony Soprano saw that Furio had absolutely no inhibitions and a merciless wrath embedded by a sincere loyalty to his boss.
Moltisanti was put in charge of the family's Webistics pump and dump stock scam. He received his stock broker licence by having someone take the exam in his name. Matthew Bevilaqua and Sean Gismonte were his subordinates in this operation. He also used them to break a number of bank safes to supplement his income. They betrayed him, however, attempting to kill him to get recognition and speed their promotion
After this unnerving experience of being interrogated by Paulie, Sal disappeared in 1999. He resurfaced at Soprano's home in 2000 claiming to have been in Puerto Rico getting treatment for his bad back. He was left out of the crew's business trip to Italy and thus his reservations about informing on Soprano began to slowly dissipate.

When Hesh refused to pay, Massive threatened litigation; Hesh shrewdly threatened a countersuit of his own, alleging that the samples used in Massive's music infringed on his copyrights.
In the short and bloody war of 1999 with the Junior Soprano crew Silvio helped Tony to plan hits on Chucky Signore and Mikey Palmice. Silvio's move to consigliere once Tony became Boss seemed completely natural. Indeed, Silvio remains Tony's most reliable advisor and enforcer, and tends to confine aggression to mob hits and poker games.
After the assasination on him failed, Tony decided to get rid of several member of Juniors crew in order to cut Junior's ability of attempting another hit on him. With Junior being indicted by the government, Tony took over all of Junior's business. Although Tony considered him to be arrogant and incompetent as a boss, he has often turned to Junior as the voice of experience. Tensions also grew between Richie Aprile and Tony as Richie had a problem with Tony's new authority as Boss.
Because of concerns about what Tony will tell his psychiatrist, Livia and Junior arranged for Tony's murder. The assassination attempt ultimately failed. Tony then kills dissident survivors from Junior's crew, including Philly Parisi but kept those whom he knew he could control such as Gigi Cestone and Patsy Parisi. Uncle Junior was only saved by being indicted by the government and placed under house arrest. Thereafter, Tony solidified his position as boss of the family by taking most of Junior's business from him, but allowing him to keep his title as boss.
