They were young enough to not know what was going on or that their gramps head just exploded

Default We Have A Winner!

The exquisitely observant Bob Harris (http://www.bobharris.com/content/view/1406/1/ - broken link) seems to have the end nailed. His reasoning is very sound and moreso now that a few other things have leaked out. Between Harris' blog and Michael Cavna et al. at The Washington Post, it seems Chase had every detail down to the most minute. About the only hanging chad is whether A.J. and/or Carmela got whacked too.

Default Who knows?

You never know, heck its only a TV show, so no matter what anybody says its still up to the viewer or Sopranos fan to choose their own ending to the finale, but I wouldn't be surprised at all to see a movie years from now, the money would be huge. Time will tell. So to some Tony is dead and gone to many others even from what Steve Perry( from Journey) made it sound that the family just met for a dinner and there was no tragedy.

After reading both blogs I have to say I believe them. The number of changes that were made to Holsten's are just too many and minute to bother if they were just meeting for dinner. The entire episode is exquisitely crafted and beautifully shot. Nothing done was a mistake or unconsidered. Steve Perry must be happy his song was chosen, but he wasn't there for the filming of the final scene.

I agree that the episode was exquisite and beautiful however, I am sick of shows that try to win awards and say hell with the viewers. It was like a bad relationship the entire last 2 seasons - I watched because I had grown to love it so much but felt like I was hanging on because of the past. Then to top it all off the ending was like a bad break-up - no reasons and no closure!

So you think we should call up some cousins in Naples on Chase?

I was very disappointed with the whole Vito sideshow and felt it wasted time that could have been better spent investigating the internal workings of Tony's familia. His family has already been done to death.

Personally, I think Carmela had him whacked. She called Furio after she heard Tony talking in his sleep about murdering Chris, Tony B. and Big Puss-y, after Tony went after her money, after all the affairs, and then finally realizing that it wasn't Chris who whacked Adriana, but her own husband. She knew indictments were coming and she wanted Tony taken out so she would have the money for herself and her family.

Carmela arranged the dinner at Holsten's. She told AJ they were going to Holsten's and then told Tony, "the consensus is Holsten's," when, in fact, she hadn't asked anyone for their consensus. Sure it would be a bit messy, but no one would suspect her for putting out a contract on her husband if he was whacked with her kids present. A contract she could now afford with her own money that she didn't have to account for with Tony.

I had to wait to watch the final 8.

I guess I'm glad it's finally over, allbeit late for me.

Between the guy with the green hat, the dude who went into the bathroom, the guy who came in right before AJ, the black dudes standing by the jukebox, it was all just smokescreen.

Meadow opened the door and the bell rang.

Default David Chase explains the ending here!

Tony Soprano Is Alive And Well, Says Chase
24 October 2007 (StudioBriefing)
Tony Soprano did not get whacked after the screen went black at the end of the final episode, The Sopranos creator David Chase says. In an interview appearing in a new book, The Sopranos: The Complete Book, Chase maintained that what viewers saw is all that happened to Tony Soprano -- that he had written no clues to Tony's fate's in that episode or any other. "There are no esoteric clues in there. No Da Vinci Code," he said. Chase said that he was surprised by fans' reaction to the episode. "They had gleefully watched him rob, kill, pillage, lie and cheat," Chase observed in the interview. "They had cheered him on. And then, all of a sudden, they wanted to see him punished for all that. They wanted 'justice' ... The pathetic thing -- to me -- was how much they wanted HIS blood, after cheering him on for eight years."
