Never Too Late

It's been three years since The Sopranos had its controversial ending (which New England Guy spoiled for me). Maybe no one cares any more, but I just stumbled across this explanation of what happened. The guy claims Tony was hit by the guy wearing the Members Only jacket. I pretty much agree.

If anything, the link goes into way too much detail. I think the evidence is simple but convincing. Earlier in the season a character said you probably don't notice when you die in a hit, it's just over. That's what happened to Tony. There's all this tension in the room and then the show suddenly goes to black. In addition, we'd just seen his daugther enter the restaurant, and the next shot we'd expect is Tony's POV of her. The sudden blackness is Tony's POV. All the other detail, some of it symbolic, isn't even necessary.

There are some who claim that David Chase meant for Tony to die, but he left it open enough for a potential movie. I can buy that, too.

Not too sure about the Garfield line (for nonreaders, the cat, not the dead president).

If what you speculate is true, nothing was spoiled for the wrong-coasters

The page I linked to is no longer up. How's that for lack of closure?

There are plenty of other explanations if you Google "Did Tony Soprano die."

Wow, the comments seem to be saying PS Your Cat Is Dead:

Wow I thought that reference was obscure enough to go unnoticed.
