Last year, Tony Soprano cheated death when he was shot by his now institutionalized Uncle Junior. While Tony continues to muse about his second chance at life, he faces a myriad of immediate, stress-inducing crises at home, at work and from the law. Tony's wife Carmela plans for a future she's not sure will arrive, and son AJ and daughter Meadow find that adulthood holds its own surprises. Meanwhile, at work, Tony comes to doubt the allegiances of many of those closest to him no one, not Paulie, Bobby, Silvio or even Christopher is above suspicion. The clock is ticking. Time is running out. But on who?]]>
Inevitably it's all leading up to that big finale, and it's deftly handled over the last two episodes, "The Blue Comet" and "Made in America" (an episode replete with subtle references to The Godfather). Things finally start to get resolved with Phil's crew, Dr. Melfi (Lorraine Bracco), Uncle Junior (Dominic Chianese), A.J. (Robert Iler), and Meadow (Jamie-Lynn Sigler), and as for Tony Cut to black. To quote from another hit HBO show of the same era, "everything ends," even The Sopranos, and while the way Chase chose to end The Sopranos may not be to the liking of fans hoping for a definitive resolution, give the man credit for not stooping to clichés or tired old scenarios for the sake of a closing. As A.J. says in the final scene, quoting his father, "Try to remember the times that were good." Good advice. --Daniel Vancini

Season 6.2 has three distinct parts. The first four episodes are "last moments in the sun" for some of the more important characters. Bobby and Janice retreat for a weekend on a lake with Tony and Carm; Johnny Sack battles a new enemy in prison; institutionalized Uncle Junior spends his last moments of sanity running a card game and mentoring a young killer; and Hesh fears for his safety when Tony owes him money and seems reluctant to pay.
Next, the season moves to the difficulties of AJ and Christopher and how both problems affect Tony. Tony takes a backseat to other characters in the opening episodes of the season, but he's never been more laid bare than in how he deals with his literal and figurative sons. As with the ambiguous nature of the show, Tony at times appears to be a heroic, thoughtful and brave, while other times, he's a monster.
Finally, the last two episodes end in the much anticipated war with New York, as successful and unsuccessful hits are targeted at the show's biggest players.Read more ›
Tony visits one of Christopher's girlfriends in Las Vegas and does some peyote. After a night of hallucinations and highly successful gambling (this on the heels of Tony losing pretty consistently and showing symptoms of a gambling addiction), they stumble out into the desert and watch the sun rise.
Seeing the sun come up, in a montage of garish color against the desert rock formations, a disheveled Tony screams that message to God and the universe. "I get it." Now, if only that meant Tony had found something approaching peace.
In this season, Tony curses the people he loves and even his own gene pool. He is enormously self-absorbed and hugely narcissistic, and more brutish than ever. He shows great empathy and horrible sociopathic fixation, sometimes in the same scene. When met with the expressed needs of people closest to him, a stock response is, "oh, poor you." Respect, whether earned or not, becomes the only thing that matters.
And people die.
The violence and loss is met with the classic urban phrase, "What are you gonna do?" The loyalty and allegiance that is at once the lifeblood and the illusion of Mafia life is summarized with Paulie's phrase, "When I get put to the test, what will I do?"
How could we have been brought to care so deeply for such unattractive people? Well, not like freaks in a carnival. Each character showed us so much of our own humanity, and taught us something about the value of unsparing, unsympathetic honesty.
And yes, the ending is intentionally ambiguous. This is, perhaps, the only way it could have ended, as others have said here.
Well, whaddaya gonna do?
The end of the series finale when Tony first walks into the restaurant then sees himself sitting down, is it a dream? Are some of the people in the restaurant notorious or related characters from ealier episodes and seasons? Earlier in the Sopranos there was talk of how a killing happens, you don't hear it, you don't see it, just bang and the lights go out, like how the last moments ended, did Tony Die? Who knows, but people on every talk show, on every sports show on espn, on blogs, everywhere are discussing it, analyzing it, and debating it, isn't that what great movies do for us? If mobsters walked in and shot tony and there was a huge shoot out, what is there to comment on, "whoa did you see him get shot"?, damn. The end. David Chase is smarter, and as i said the end was so suspenseful it was Hitchcockian. Hitchcock once said it's not the explosion of the bomb that goes off. That'll make you jump for one second, it's the knowing a bomb is under the table and it could go off, the waiting, and anticipation and it doesn't that was the last 5 minutes and i'd think everyone would agree even the dissapointed people that it was very intense. Great movies make us feel something whether it is good or bad, a great movie can change us or our mood.
I've loved watching the Sopranos over the years it's more than just a violent show, it's almost always fresh and current and dealing with alot of the same issues we all deal with in our lives.Read more ›
