Eh, it was worth watching Phil get wacked. The exploder rolling over his head was greatness

it was foreshadowing tony getting killed like in the godfather maybe hiding a gun behind the toilet maybe and some guy killing tony in the restaurant. but then the screen just goes blank just as the guy enters the restroom. i thought my tv went out. they just left it open.

You couldn't help but get the feeling something was going to happen with the scene cutting to the door every time someone came in.

I was disappointed with the episode, but Phil's death did bring me some satisfaction.

My wife got me hooked on the show last season.

I kept thinking they might be Feds coming to arrest him...

But yeah, the Godfather thing comes to mind too.

I thought the final episode and it's ending was GREAT. That song means a lot for me for two reasons and I thought it was perfect.

The main character gets away for most of my lifetime. Then in the 90's you start seeing (Or I should say, I started seeing) unpredictable plot twists where the guy that's "supposed" to make it doesn't. That's been done too many times.

I figured this whole season that Tony would be indicted, but wouldn't live to stand trial.

This ending was not expected and the song made it perfect.

That's what I was thinking, the movie could bring in SERIOUS $$$ and have plenty of drama left.

Think about it. If you were sitting in the restaurant watching your daughter come in. The Italian guy that went to the restroom. When he comes back out he puts a bullet in the back of your head. What would you see?..........fade to black T got whacked.

T isnt dead, they are making a movie about this shit so they can make millions of MORE $$$$$. I watched a interview with the maker of that show and his reasoning in ending the show was so he could concentrate on his new career as a MOVIE producer. What a way to start your career, Soprano's the Movie.

I've read this a few times and this seems to be the best theory. The last scene was mostly shot through Tony's eyes. The 2nd to last episode has T & his Brother n law talking about getting whacked and how you never see it coming. Things just probably go black. Considering this was through his own eyes, it seems T did get killed.

You really think they would have done it like that, no gun shot, none of the family screaming, etc? He ain't dead, end of story. In a place as crowded as that diner was, someone doesn't walk up behind you, put a gun to your head, and nobody notice.

I was wondering if maybe everyone re-upped on their contracts, and there will be a Season 7? Obviously, if this had happened mid season, they would have kept it out of the news as to not ruin it and kill the ratings for the rest of the season.

Considering most of the other whackings were done in broad daylight with no thought of concealing identities, it's plausible to say T was murdered in front of his family. The thought of the audience getting whacked is a good one, too.

I slept on it and just came to the conlcusion David Chase wanted the viewers to realize it just never ends. he left it up to the viewer. the whole entire last scene with Journey playing in the diner was full of foreshadowing that a disaster was about to happen but never did. if you watch the soprano's from season 1 you will understand the show was a thinking show. it would just be to simple minded to have a complete ending like everyother show out there. which soprano's is definatly not like everyother show. I dont think we got the shaft and the top critics in the U.S didnt either. if you never watched the show you would never understand.

I think the ending was very poetic with lots of room for interpretation.

That said, I don't want poetry in my TV watching. I want a good fuckin' show.

It looked to me like they left the end open for a movie, which I would go see.
If that guy was gonna pop Tony, he would have pulled a gun out and walked up and shot him in the face, dropped the gun and walked out.............just like most of the other hits.
The agreement with the underlings and the understanding that Phil was history makes me believe that Tony did not die because the other families make more money if Tony is alive and they also thought Phil was a fucking nutjob. It is simple business..........kill the guy making waves and carry on.........Phil was making waves.

Chase could have done a homage to The Godfather with the shooter going in the bathroom to get the gun.

We'll never know and thats the great thing about it. It was left open ended to leave us to our imagination and to talk about it.

I like the viewer getting whacked idea. We didn't know it was coming and all we saw was black. I loved it.
