I wouldn't waste my time watching these pathetic excuses for entertainment (sopranos, lost, etc. etc.). Ever notice that they all have something in common.....a weak plot that can not and will not end, ever. Why should the writers and producers put forth the effort to actually finish the show when they don't have to....people are perfectly willing to watch "half" a show. That way they leave it open for themselves to make millions in the future because people will tune right back in when the movie comes out or the series starts up again 4 years later. I stopped watching TV years ago...best thing I ever did.

Wasn't it 'Dallas' that in the last episode they machine gunned down everyone, and a year later we found out they miraculously survived?



abeal, Nothing happened.... Left it open (untold)

SPOILERS!!

Phil Leotardo got whacked, after a tip from Tony's FBI Terrorism link. That was about it. The end had the family at a diner somewhere and it was a tense scene with different people entering the restaurant and you felt like something was going to happen. The finally Meadow runs across the street to the diner. You hear the door open, Tony looks up, and then -- black.

Nothing....roll credits.

I thought it was a great episode...lots of symbolism and tension. But I really would've preferred an actual ending.

I agree, it was a great show and that was a unique way to end it. You could cut the tension with a knife in our den between the Admiral and I. In fact both kind of "jumped" when the screen went black.

Great show and writing by David Chase, I was stumped but could not think of another way to end such a series and yes it did leave it open for another season,movies or what ever but I think it is best left alone.

I am sure not everyone will agree but I have watched this show from day one and it has become my all time favorite tv show, now I can cancel HBO



I just knew that T was going to get whacked right in front of his family when Meadow walked in and the writers did a great job of leading you into thinking that as well

Sucked-the only thing good about it was Philly getting whacked. Profound amiguity, my a$$. More like shameless "hooking" of an audience for the movie. Who wants to bet that the opening scene of the Sopranos movie is the pick-up from teh fade to black of the final episode???

I thought it was great too...who says everything has to be wrapped up with a neat bow? life is ambiguous. But in addition to Phil getting whacked there was one other very important event from the last show, the meeting between Tony, Pauly, Carmine and Phil's leutenants where Tony basically usurped Phil's power. He outmaneuvered him. Pretty smart.

Great series.

I did think the scene with Phil's head stopping the SUV from rolling into traffic with the kids was kind of humorous and the reaction of those watching it also.

I also took that the FBI had a pool going on this one also from the reaction to Phil getting whacked

I only watched a portion of a few episodes during the life of the series and thought they all sucked. I never understood the fascination in watching a bunch guinea bastards going around killing, screwing and kissing other whops and then eating brats 24/7. On a positive note at least I learned some mafia slang.

I used to watch that show all the time and thought it was great even though I wondered why. Who would have ever though that watching this type of violence would be entertaining? Sort of like "Six Feet Under". You watch stuff like this and actually laugh at some of it. Maybe we're all just a little sick in the head! I really didn't watch many episodes this final season.

When the screen went black, I thought the dog had stepped on the remote when he jumped up on the couch! DAMM DOG!!! I was fumbling for the remote when the credits came onto the screen! "Sorry Dozer".

Did anybody recognize the hit men who popped Phil as being Tony's guys? I sort of had the feeling the FBI guy had set this thing up to take over Tony's action somehow as Tony had already made nice. Too bad Meadow couldn't have gotten her car parked a little quicker as then maybe we would know if the guys who showed up at the restaurant were just there to eat.

The leap from someone choosing a tv show as mindless entertainment to living one's life thru said tv is typical of a libtard, not someone who claims to be a conservative. Self-righteous, self-indulgent and stupid...

tn freebird the guy who shot phil was walden...one of tony's guys (the one who brought the cat from the safe house)
the funny thing is that my cable really DID go out towards the end...right at the beginning of tony's visit to junior, for about ten seconds...when we thought it went out again at the end, you could probably hear the expletive i screamed in the next zip code
