I think if a show airs on Sunday night... and there's a thread about it on Monday morning... it might be safe to assume there's discussion about what happened in the show inside the thread.

This is just a thread titled "Sopranos Poll". It could be asking anything about the Sopranos. Even so, I was cautious enough to use thread preview before opening it, only to see "Is Tony dead?"

It's a f*cking spoiler. Excuse me for not liking it when some douche bag ruins an episode for me just to start another thread to discuss something that could have been covered in either of the existing threads.

Hey, look on the bright side, jsp. At least he didn't mention the scene where Christopher buttf*cked Carmela. By comparison that was much more shocking than Tony getting shot in the gut.

Who's the dumb****? Other threads have "major spoiler" on them, a new thread the next day comes up, and you don't realize that
maybe it had something to do with the new episode. I apologize to you if you are too stupid to figure that one out. 7,212 out of 7,213 members got it. You didn't.

Should we start adding "WARNING: SPOILERS" to the title of Monday morning threads discussing football games played on Sunday as well? Y'know, just in case someone tivo'ed it and hasn't had a chance to watch it yet.

Who's the dumb****? You are. Besides starting another thread about something that's already being discussed, you also ignore that the other thread has "spoiler" in the title (that might tip you off that some people are conscious of spoilers), and the only thing in the post is the spoiler, so even a thread preview from the front page ruins it.

I guess I'm dumb for not realizing that this would be another thread discussing the same thing as the other two threads on the front page. Maybe you should start a few more threads on the subject in case three aren't enough either.

Y'know, just in case someone tivo'ed it and hasn't had a chance to watch it yet.Give me a break. A more descriptive title would have tipped me off. If there weren't already two threads on the subject on the front page, I might have been tipped off. If the first thing in the thread preview wasn't the spoiler, I might have been tipped off.

It's not like I was blindly stumbling around the internet doing searches for "Sopranos, season 6, episode 1".

Whatever. At least the other dude that started a thread was smart enough to note the spoiler. I guess I should know better than to expect intelligent actions from the idiots on the site.

For the 4 people who voted yes (so far), what's your logic? Personally, I view Tony as essential to the show.

Otter

I have no idea how it's going to pan out. It's hard to imagine the rest of the season without having Tony arounda although he can still be an essential part of the plot without being alive.

I can't see them doing more than 1 episode of his life flashing before his eyes however. I'll take that bet.

I'm going to watch the episdoe again when I get home tonight. From what I remember he had his hand over his liver when he was covering up the bullet wound but I'm reading that it was a gut shot on TWOP. Either way he looked to be fading pretty fast.

Here's a thought. Try using the two existing threads on the subject.

Dude, what's with the stick up your ass lately? Or am i just noticing your true colors for some reason. Do yourself a favor and round up some buddies, get drunk and buy each other lap dances. You're about as fun to have around as ****ing gum in my hair.

Fat Elvis
03-13-2006, 12:21 PM
I think he's dead and that it will take pretty much an entire season to explore how the power vacuum gets filled. I think the big jump in time (from season 5 to 6) allows for back stories that involve Tony in that missing time frame to show how the power grab plays out.

It is the Sopranos, not just the Tony Soprano show. I think it would be a disservice to the series for it to end like everyone expected with him either dieing or going to jail in the last episode.

Brock
03-13-2006, 12:23 PM
I don't think he's going to die, but I'm about 70 percent certain the show will end with Tony rolling over on everybody.

Otter
03-13-2006, 12:52 PM
Ok, I thought about it and I'm going with "no", he's going to somehow pull through.

Chase will find a way to tactfully pull it off and it will lead to a kinder and gentler Tony who tries to reconcile his past evil deeds only to find that his life and the evil he's commited in it have spiraled too far out of control.

Gah!!! I hate waiting for Sudays, I find this series addicting.

Fat Elvis
03-20-2006, 01:56 PM
OK, after last night's episode, I thought it might be interesting to revisit this thread to see if anyone has changed their mind....

Here is another option...Is he technically alive, but as good as dead due to his brain damage?

Sopranos' creator: What did fans expect?
<LI class=cnnhiliteheader>Story Highlights <li>David Chase can't figure out why fans were so upset
</li><li>Fans revel in Tony Soprano's viciousness, then want "justice"? Chase: Why?
</li><LI>Chase originally wanted ending to stay black until HBO ID came on
NEW YORK (AP) -- Just when we had made our peace with "The Sopranos" finale and moved on with our lives, David Chase has stirred things up again.
Breaking his silence months after the HBO mob drama ended its run, he is offering a belated explanation for that blackout at the restaurant. He strongly suggests that, no, Tony Soprano didn't get whacked moments later as he munched onion rings with his family at Holsten's. And mostly Chase wonders why so many viewers got so worked up over the series' non-finish.
"There WAS a war going on that week, and attempted terror attacks in London," says Chase. "But these people were talking about onion rings."

The interview, included in "'The Sopranos': The Complete Book," published this week, finds Chase exasperated by viewers who were upset that Tony didn't meet explicit doom.

Chase says the New Jersey mob boss "had been people's alter ego. They had gleefully watched him rob, kill, pillage, lie and cheat. They had cheered him on. And then, all of a sudden, they wanted to see him punished for all that. They wanted 'justice' ...
"The pathetic thing -- to me -- was how much they wanted HIS blood, after cheering him on for eight years."

In the days, and even weeks, after the finale aired June 10, "Sopranos" wonks combed that episode for buried clues, concocting wild theories. (Was this some sort of "Last Supper" reimagined with Tony, wife Carmela, son A.J. and daughter Meadow?)
Chase insists that what you saw (and didn't see) is what you get.

"There are no esoteric clues in there. No 'Da Vinci Code,' " he declares.

He says it's "just great" if fans tried to find a deeper meaning, but "most of them, most of us, should have done this kind of thing in high school English class and didn't."

He defends the bleak, seemingly inconclusive ending as appropriate -- and even a little hopeful.

A.J. will "probably be a low-level movie producer. But he's not going to be a killer like his father, is he? Meadow may not become a pediatrician or even a lawyer ... but she'll learn to operate in the world in ways that Carmela never did.

"It's not ideal. It's not what the parents dreamed of. But it's better than it was," Chase says.
And as for that notorious blackout in the middle of the Journey power ballad, "Don't Stop Believin"'?
"Originally, I didn't want any credits at all," says Chase. "I just wanted the black screen to go the length of the credits -- all the way to the HBO 'whoosh' sound. But the Directors Guild wouldn't give us a waiver."

And while this unexpected finish left lots of viewers thinking their cable service was on the fritz, Chase insists it wasn't meant as a prank.

"Why would we want to do that?" he asks. "Why would we entertain people for eight years only to give them the finger?"

Otter
10-23-2007, 03:54 PM
I never thought he died, I interpreted it as a "life goes on" type of ending. If nothing else Tony Soprano was an opportunist and pretty damn lucky.

I thought the ending was brilliant. It doesn't matter if he's dead or not. The show started out with audience witnessing Tony's first anxiety attack, and it ends by giving the audience one of their own. The audience felt the tension Tony lives with every day, constantly looking over his shoulder for danger. I have never been so tense watching television before. Maybe a movie or two have done it, but it was pretty spectacular.

I agree, and would add that it was the perfect way for T and the gang to stay alive as characters forever. He's not that guy who got whacked in the end, or the guy who engineered a coup and took ultimate power. Chrissie once bemoaned that his story 'had no arc.' Tony's now and forever that guy we knew a while ago, wonder what ever happened to him.
