Speaking of Little Italy, how far did that cat have to walk to track down Paulie? Wasn't it at the Bing?

So who do we think the cat was? Christopher? Aid? I thought those scenes were very well done. The cat was a nice touch in my opinion. An oustider looking in, somebody from beyond... maybe just a fucking cat.

Nikki Finke is a whiny bitch. Her Rita Skeeter hackjob makes me appreciate the finale even more now.

Even I think her article is a little overboard. But angry fans crashing the site is not a subjective opinion, it's actually happening.

I think it's bullshit that we have to study every little detail and assume certain things instead of them just giving us a fitting finale. I guess I'm being lazy or stupid like some have already stated, but hell that's why I spend 10 bucks a month on HBO and not the book of the month club.

Hell I am either lazier or stupidier because I pay DirecTV $13 per month. Or I guess it will be did pay after towmorrow.

Although I too was like WTF, all I could do was sit there and think, is Meadow or AJ going to do what Tony could not do and warn their father. Then, as Meadow walked in it ended and no one really knows. I will not be shocked in th least if they announce season 7 next month. It left so much unresolved, but as some have pointed out, the whole series is that way, but life is that way too so it makes it more real IMHO. If they never make another Sopranos episode or movie though, I agree Chase took the easy way out.

I loved the ending, but I can see where people would hate it.

I think it wasn't so much that nothing happened, as the way he did it. If he would have pulled back on the scene of them waiting for Meadow to enter and faded it out to credits, it might have been alright. Instead, he quick cuts to black and makes people think their dvr is broke or the cable cut out and lets the black fester into the credits with no music. It really was a unique way of doing it.

How do you know it's angry fans? The fact is the site is crashing. Why, is speculation at this point.

I really liked that episode, and I'm not a die hard Sopranos fan by any stretch. While watching, I realized I really like the poetic side of that series a lot more than the psychological.

Unless that black is the last 30 seconds of Tony's life.

That's clearly open to interpretation, barring Chase revealing something in an interview. I'm just saying that I could see how the rather pointed manner in which he ended to the credits would lead people to immediately head to the internet and voice their displeasure.

I can't help but chuckle at the thought of millions of asses rising from their couches with a unified 'WTF!' though.

I have a feeling that Chase did too. Bastard!

I enjoyed it, and was shocked by the cut to black ending, but I think it works. There were a lot of loose ends, but that is a trade mark of this show. Well farewell and thanks for the memories.

I guess why the site is crashing is open to interpretation.

Maybe if the last scene was just from Tony's perspective... but the audience was in omniscient mode. We were outside looking in, not seeing the family congregate through Tony's eyes.

Can we stop saying the show ended with a fade to black? It ended with a cut to black. There is a major difference.

The ending is what you want it to be. If you think Tony just got killed, then he did, for you. If you think they just set down to dinner and the screwy life of the Sopranos goes on it did. It's not high art or brilliant or anything, just one way to end a series that could never end in a way that would please even the majority.

I'd like to see the final frame of Meadow walking in the door just to see if she has any kind of expression on her face.
