I Know Kate Covered This Yesterday…

Fuck the Sopranos

But really, what the f**k was up with the Soprano’s? Kate watched it as someone who has never sat through an entire episode, I watched it as someone who has kept up with 6 seasons over 13 years on HBO. And everything up until the last 10 minutes was great. Is he dead? Is he alive? Let’s throw out some of the more popular theories that I’ve found through the web:

  • Tony was popped by the guy who went into the bathroom
  • Tony AND his family were popped by the guy who went into the bathroom
  • Because Meadow is bad at parallel parking, she’s pregnant Ok – I didn’t find that one, I just want to know why it took her 3 minutes to parallel park
  • Tony’s heart condition, brought upon by years of being a gangster, was aggravated by the onion rings, leading to a fateful heart attack, which killed him
  • The whole thing was a dream, and the joke’s on us because David Chase ran out of ideas – and when you run out of ideas, you try to be “artsy”
  • The joke’s on us because David Chase is a huge Martin Scorsese wannabe

Here’s my beef – the whole “vague” ending idea, the whole concept of “the viewer takes what they want” is BS. For 22 years of my life, I’ve followed the 6 seasons, allowing me to watch YOUR story unfold. The story YOU were telling, and making me wait 29 years to watch in its entirety. Why, at the very end, when YOU are able to put the bow on the package, to leave me with what YOU were intending from the very first episode 36 years ago – instead, you decide to go all pretentious, and not make a decision? You’ve made EVERY decision – so why not this one?? David Chase – here’s to not letting ruin the best years – all 47 of them – of my life again.
