The inevitable: Death to the Soprano Crew.

It has been foreshadowed since the first season. It's nice for it to come in on a long promise.

I like how I love and hate, plus despise, Tony. I want him to change his ways but I want him to pay for his ways.

I also enjoy the psychological aspects of Tony seeing a shrink and the relationship he has with her.

A lot has happened and I don't want to spoil it for anyone.

The bell tolls for Tony...

Man, I just really started watching last season and some of the things in the last three episodes have been a jolt

I'm sure the regulars saw them coming though.

I thought the last few episodes were riveting-I didnt expect the Christopher episode, or his son's change--the pool scene was a real stand out--and I wasnt a fan of Robert Iger's character but he really did a great job in that episode -but the finale...

if there are zero plans for a movie or a reunion show, then it was somewhat clever conclusion...maybe. in a twisted sort of way..but the story content seemed disjointed from the episodes that preceded it-especially what they did with the son. It seemed almost a parody. The Phil Leotardo plot was shut down rather quickly right as it was getting interesting(when the finale started I was totally on edge waiting to see what happened--but by the end it was "huh?)"

What do you think happened at the last moment in the last episode?



*********SPOILER!!!***********DO NOT READ BELOW*******



From the looks of the last frame of the episode, it looks like Tony got it. Meadow was coming in the door, as Tony looked up. Instead of seeing a smile to greet his daughter, we saw him reach down as if he was getting a gun. Then the screen went black and that is all the viewer knows. Makes me wonder...

I think that.......


SPOILERS

they were manipulating the audience with the activity in the place. Like the guy sitting at the bar who was looking rather interested in Tony--then he got up and went to the bathroom. And then the two black guys came in(I was thinking--maybe there is going to be a random hold up and Tony or someone gets caught in the middle?)

And the way they dragged out Meadow's parking--maybe it was to set her up?

But the thing is--it was unlikely something would happen to her--because it would seem too much like Godfather 3.
The same with him going into the Witness Protection program. Good Fellas.


I think they just left it ambiguous so you would be left with your own ideas about what happened next. It was a life goes on type of conclusion and a F* you at the same time.

I didnt get the impression he was going for a gun--though i would have to watch it again to see if I picked up anything. If he had been killed in a non Mob crime--that would have been something.
Actually I thought maybe he was going to be caught with some terrorism charge because of the absestos dumping.
Something weird and ironic.

Hmm
now that its over I have to think what my favorite episodes were.
I cant remember the first and second season too well--but I liked the Robert Patrick-degenerate gambler storyline in particular.

The episode where Charles Dutton plays an honest cop and Tony gets his politician friend to have him fired was one I remember well, but I think my favorite was the last Ralphie Cifaretto episode where he and Tony are all buddy buddy one minute, then the conversation changes to the horse barn fire and..

I loved that show. When it was so-so, it was so-so. But when it was good--it was really good!
