* I know Tessio betrayed the Corelones by [[spoiler: aligning with Barzini]], but my question is how did he betrayed them?

** Favoring Carlo also contributes to the image of the helpless, clueless Don that Michael wants to project. An image that makes his enemies underestimate him and uncovers traitors like Tessio.

* Why sent Rocco Lampone to [[spoiler: kill Hyman Roth at the airport, where's it's crawling with guards]] and knowing he has a shitty leg due to his service in WWII? I mean, you see after he did it, he tried to escape on said shitty leg but the guards got to him and killed him anyway.

** Keeping your friends close but your enemies closer is a lesson Michael took to heart. Notice how up until the time he told Carlo he knew the part he'd played in Sonny's death that Michael appeared to be grooming Carlo to be his right hand man in Las Vegas? He'd suspected Carlo's role in Sonny's murder but had to keep Carlo close by, basically bringing Carlo into the inner circle the way Carlo had longed to ever since he married Connie. Standing godfather to Carlo and Connie's son was perfect, and better still, Michael was asked to do so and it wasn't even his idea! It required Michael to have ice in his veins, but it was definitely the right move.

** He hates Carlo, but Connie's still his sister. It's a family thing. Besides which, it gives him a perfect alibi while his surgical strikes against the other Families are going down; no officer, I had nothing to do with it, I was at the church, acting as godfather to my newborn nephew, and hundreds of people saw me there. And also diminishes his motive against Carlo; detective, if I hated my brother-in-law enough to have him murdered, would I have agreed to be godfather to his child?


Added DiffLines:

** Someone has to do it, that someone's going to be in a lot of danger either way, and it's implied that, since he was head of security at Michael's compound, Rocco has some atoning to do for not being able to prevent the assassination attempt on Michael.
