Really, really awesome: 10 Best Family Guy Newscasts
In the event that you are still having fits over what really happened in the final scene of “The Sopranos,” the conclusion of which left Tony’s fate hanging in the air with the now-famous “Don’t Stop Believing” cut-to-black (click here to refresh your memory), you probably want to check out the self-proclaimed definitive guide to “The End.”
“If you look at the final episode really carefully, it’s all there.” These are David Chase’s words regarding the finale of the Sopranos. He is right, it is “all there”. This is the definitive explanation of why Tony died in Holsten’s in the final scene of The Sopranos. The following is based on a thorough analysis of the final season of the show and will clear up one of the most misunderstood endings in film or television history. Chase took almost 2 years to construct the final season of the show after the fifth season ended in June of 2004.
I’m not going to quote any more of the guide, mostly because it was way too long for me and my attention deficit disorder to read but also because spoiling David Chase’s intricately-designed conclusion would be directly contrary to the director’s purpose in orchestrating the fascinating ambiguity of the show’s final breath.
P.S. TONY WAS SHOT IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD BY THE GUY IN THE BLACK JACKET!!!
