By Andrew Herrmann

So if you're anything like the editors at, the new "Family is a Force of Nature" promo for The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 5 left you full of questions: Is Melissa burying the hatchet or digging up dirt? Does the J stand for Joe or Jacqueline in Teresa's carving? Why is Caroline so angry with that tree?

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

Well never fear -- we went into full-on Jessica Fletcher mode and broke down what we think all the Mother Nature moments mean in this in depth analysis. (And as people who have sampled Kathy's homemade cannoli before, we're pretty much the closest thing you'll find to a RHONJ expert.)

And if you haven't watched the promo yet WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Take a look and share your own theories on what it all means in the comments.
