The Sopranos Season 6 Part II ended with a question mark. It
could be argued that they left the possibility of another season
wide open with this choice, but they killed off many major
characters and rendered others into vegetables in the last few
episodes, so that doesn't seem likely. Uncle Jun has slipped into
Alzheimer's. Christopher dies in the aftermath of an accident with a
little help from Tony. A major war erupts between the Sopranos and
one of the New York families, resulting in deaths in Tony's
organization. His shrink, convinced by her colleagues that she is
enabling his sociopathic behavior, drops Tony as a client, but
Anthony Jr, depressed over a break-up with his girlfriend, attempts
suicide, and ends up in therapy. Meadow has a new boyfriend, and
switches her major from pre-med to pre-law. Tony is facing a
likelihood of a federal indictment on RICO charges.
Spoiler Alert -- If you haven't seen this
season and intend to, skip this paragraph
Tony ties up some loose ends, then meets his wife in a
restaurant. Someone in the restaurant keeps eyeing him. Anthony Jr.
arrives, the three are happily eating onion rings, Meadow drives up
and has trouble parking, the man who has been eyeing Tony goes to
the rest room, Meadow enters, then fade to black. I was immediately
infuriated by this non-ending. I must admit that, since watching it,
I have caught myself finishing the story in my mind, or at least
trying to. Did the man whack Tony? Was Tony indicted, and did he go
to jail or not. Did the man kill one of Tony's family by mistake?
Perhaps this was a proper ending after all for a series that shows
Tony navigating through one mine field after another while trying to
maintain a "normal" family. The tone throughout this final season
seemed to be that they would eventually kill or jail Tony. It was a
question of when, not if.
IMDb has the series at 9.4. It won 5 Golden Globes, 21 Emmys, and
a host of other awards and nominations. For me, at least, the series
appeal was just as great at the end as it was in the beginning. That
is probably a great time to end a series, on top, but I am a little
sad that I won't be watching a season 7 next year. The genre is
cable drama series, and this is an A.
Sarah Shahi, as a Las Vegas friend of Christopher, wears clothes
when she has sex with
Tony, but shows great pokies after the sex and
before the two eat "shrooms." An unknown female cop shows either
bush or very abbreviated panties, and there is lots of topless
action from the strippers at the Bada Bing.
