Like many suspected, the Sopranos ended in the most unsatisfying manner experienced since St. Elsewhere was revealed to be the product of an autistic kid’s imagination.
There are a few theories about the reasons for the B.S. ending:
- Sopranos creator David Chase wanted to end the series a season ago. HBO didn’t want him to. He relented, and this is his revenge;
- David Chase wanted to end the series a season ago for a good reason: he ran out of gas…and could only muster the huge fart that was the series finale;
- David Chase didn’t want any sequels, so he created a craptastic ending in order to kill whatever desire Sopranos fans had left in the series;
- Tony was whacked…he just didn’t know it. This theory can be credited by poster moodyblue who wrote in a Courier-Post forum: Tony IS DEAD and WAS CLIPPED by someone. We the audience have always seen the episodes from Tony’s point of view, and the blackened silence is what Tony sees and hears when he finally gets clipped. Remember the conversation with Bobby at the lake? “I wonder if you hear the one that gets you” - the final episode answers that question. That is why they flashed back to it at the end of last weeks episode. He never heard the one that killed him.
moodyblue has a point, but my money’s on a combo of 1,2, and 3 .Related Posts
