Always high on crystal meth and unable to comply with orders, Brendan, this time without Christopher, hijacked another Comley truck with two black cohorts. In the process, the driver of this second truck was accidentally shot and killed by a ricochet bullet when one of the thugs dropped his gun. Once Tony learns about this mishap, Brendan and Christopher receive a lecture about leadership and are ordered to return the truck to Comley. However, Uncle Junior isn't satisfied. Mikey Palmice and Livia Soprano both give Uncle Junior advice on the matter. Because of this, Junior ordered that Christopher receive a mock execution — and a real one for Brendan. Brendan was shot clean through the eye ("Moe Greene special") while in his bathtub by Uncle Junior's trigger man, Mikey Palmice, as Junior stood by.
Anthony DeSando's last onscreen appearance as Brendan Filone was in the first season episode The Legend of Tennessee Moltisanti. He is one of the main concentrations on television when Jeffrey Wernick is interviewed about the murder charges. Wernick reveals that Filone was a loyal soldier and associate and his murder was as yet unsolved from the eyes of a federal agent. The amount of attention and coverage Brendan receives after his demise makes Christopher annoyed and jealous. Even Georgie says that he is amazed to have known Brendan.
Later, when Jimmy Altieri attends a funeral, he notifies Uncle Junior of how sad Brendan Filone's mother was at his funeral. Junior reciprocates by telling Mikey and Chuckie about Jimmy's remark, noting that this is the kind of things they are talking about behind his back, namely the "Brendan Filone hit."
Mikey Palmice was killed after Chris and Paulie Gualtieri chased him down while he was jogging. Mikey tried to blame all the recent events on Junior, even Brendan's death, but Chris said it frankly. "My friend Brendan, you shot him in his bathtub naked, no chance to run." And with that, Paulie and Chris executed Mikey and left him dead in the woods.
In season two, after Christopher is shot by Sean Gismonte and Matthew Bevilaqua, he has a near-death experience in the hospital where he goes to "purgatory" and explains that he saw Brendan Filone and Mikey Palmice playing cards with a bunch of Roman soldiers and Irish men. Chris also mentions that Brendan and Mikey are friends in hell although they were enemies when alive.
