As for a movie. It would make huge cash and I believe Soprano fans would come out in waves in order to see those questions answered. I wouldn't be surprised in the least bit if a movie came out in the distant future. I would definately welcome it.

Also, I have had Journey in my head all day long.
You to...I have been singing Journey all damn day at work.... All day Don't Stop Believing....That was also the 2005 Chicago Whitesox theme song when they won the World Series...I live 55 miles from Chitown so I really hope I never hear that damn song again...

Here are my thoughts:

I agree that there are way too many story lines that did not get tied up. There may be a movie or another season after some time to think about it. I think Chase left the door open for such a thing.

I also believe that last night was the final episode. We may get a 15 min ending in the future, but if you remember the talk that Tony and Bobby had in the canoe about when your shot you dont hear or feel anything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you notice last night the guy goes to the bathroom and Tony is watching Meadow walk through the door and then BLACK AND SILENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They even went back to that moment in the canoe last episode when Tony was lying in bed at the end......

I'm 85% sure that Tony was shot and that was it........

I read that theory earlier today. It's good and it's a strong possibility. The guy who walked into the place and sat at the bar was one shady individual for sure.

What was worse? Watching Vito's kid take a dump in the shower or watching AJ's jeep go up in flames? Both were equally pointless, just wondering your take?

Default Re: Last season of the Sopranos!

With regard to the final scene in the diner, here is a take in the Washington Post Q&A from someone who had the program on DVR and then broke the scene down frame by frame overnight like the Zapruder film.

The guy at the bar is also credited as Nikki Leotardo. The same actor played him in the first part of season 6 during a brief sit down concerning the future of Vito. That wasn't that long ago. Apparently, he is the nephew of Phil. Phil's brother Nikki Senior was killed in 1976 in a car accident. Absolutely genius!!! David Chase is truly rewarding the true fans who pay attention to detail.

So the point would have been that life continues and we may never know the end of the Sopranos. But if you pay attention to the history, you will find that all the answers lie in the characters in the restaurant. The trucker was the brother of the guy who was robbed by Christopher in Season 2. Remember the DVD players? The trucker had to identify the body. The boy scouts were in the train store and the black guys at the end were the ones who tried to kill Tony and only clipped him in the ear (was that season 2 or 3?).

Absolutely incredible!!! There were three people in the restaurant who had reason to kill Tony and then it just ends. This was Chase's way of proving that he will not escape his past. It will not go on forever despite that he would like it to "don't stop."


http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...060802423.html

Chase achieved his goal - raather than talking about what did happen fans are talking today about what will happen, which is no small feat to pull off for what is only a TV show.

There may just be a lot of apologtsts out there for Chase, but this reflects how TV watching is different when you can watch a show repeatedly and then bounce theories around the Internet - for better or worse the Sopranos is the show that best captures those changed viewing dynamics over the last decade.

Mrs. Chase is that you?....

Oh well. It is what it is. An ending with many questions to be answered. If that's what Mr. Chase wanted then so be it. He accomplished his.....'goal'.

My husband---who has an amazing memory for music and music groups ---said the guy who came in the restaurant in front of AJ was the lead singer of Journey.

can anyone confirm?

This is a link to an interview with David Chase in the Newark Star-Ledger (what other possible paper could there be?) where he discusses the series and last episode.

http://blog.nj.com/alltv/2007/06/dav...se_speaks.html

And the Washington Post excerpt i posted yesterday regarding how other patrons at the diner in the last scene were all potential revenge killers has been debunked as being based on a bogus e-mail making the rounds
