TONY IS DEAD
Body: Tony Soprano was killed….
In fact, the ending was genius if you’ve paid attention to the show or are just a fan of well developed well thought out plots that all tie together and have the memory of a champ to remember it all the ending was simple, he got killed, but let me tell y’all why and explain in detail… There was 4 people in the room total who had a reason to kill tony…..
The two black guys were paid before to kill Tony when his mother put a hit out on him but he was clipped in the ear in Season One.
The trucker at the booth near Tony was the brother of a Trucker, Christopher killed in DVD player robbery. We last saw the brother when he went to identify his dead brother’s body.
And lastly, from the earlier seasons, the Italian man who was sitting at the counter stool, who the camera kept focusing in on, is Nikki Leotardo, Phil Leotardos nephew. He was in one of the early season episodes where Phil and Tony have a sit down….
Here is where the genius comes in….
When Tony walks into the Holston’s, you see the camera focus on him, then it switches to his perspective, and you see him looking @ the booth hes gonna sit at…
Then the camera switches back to Tony’s face, then it once again
switches to his perspective, and it shows him looking @ the door and looking @ the people come in….. Everytime the door opens the chimes sound…….
Carmela walks in, Chimes.
AJ walks in, Chimes.
This all happens while Meadow is parallel parking, still trying to get inside the restaurant….
At this point the camera switches back Nikki Leotardo who goes in the bathroom…
Then it goes to a scene where Meadow finally parks and starts running into the diner…
The door is about to open, Tony looks up…
and No Chimes…
Everything just goes black…
In one of the early episodes of the Sopranos, Tonys is talking with Bobby about what it must feel like to die.
Bobby says, “at the end, you probably dont hear anything, everything just goes black!”
This idea was revisited in the second to last episode during the
last seconds of it, when Tony is about to go to sleep and he flashes back to the memory of him and Bobby on the boat… “You probably dont hear anything everything just goes black”
So in the end, the Journey song was playing, the chimes on the door sounded but when Meadow came in, someone killed Tony.
This is the reason you didn’t hear or see sh!t when he died…. it was from his perspective… and everything went black, then the credits.
Hi Luke, how are you my man. I enjoyed reading that Tony Soprano’s death theory, even though I’m not agreed with that. In fact, here is how David Chase, creator of the series, responds to that theory in an interview:
“I feel the need to debunk the e-mail that’s making the rounds about all the Holsten’s patrons being characters from earlier in the series. The actor playing Member’s Only guy had never been on the show before, Tony killed at least, one if not both of his carjackers, and there are about 17 other things wrong with this popular but incorrect theory.”
Also, according to some yet unconfirmed rumors I read in People’s magazine last week, a Sopranos movie is in the making, and the shooting will start in december.
One more thing: did you notice the cameo appearance by David Chase in the final scene? He’s the guy wearing a jacket and baseball hat who walks into the Holsten’s right after Tony, and sits in the corner. While Meadow is parking her car outside, we see him again sitting alone in the corner with his head down. It was an amazing ending, like nothing I’ve seen before. Hope there would be a Sopranos movie soon.
