The Final Episode.
Written by: Walt
Tony and his family (both immediate and mafia) are still in hiding. They all go to Bobby’s funeral (I still can’t believe they killed Bobby). Tony meets with Agent Dwight at Newark Airport gives him more info on Arabs in hopes that Agent Dwight will help him find Phil. Agent Dwight tells him no way.
Phil is pissed that Tony isn’t dead yet. Phil’s lieutenant wants to reach out but, Phil says no way. Tony meets with him at a neutral meeting place. They agree that the war should end while he wont give them Phil he understands that Tony has to do what he has to do and they will pay Janis for killing Bobby. So the Soprano family gets to move back home. Agent Dwight calls Tony on his cell and tells him the FBI has traced Phil’s calls to a certain pay phone. They find out that only a few stations have them anymore. Eventually Phil shows up at one and gets popped.
AJ’s continuous lectures on how messed up America and the world are was a bit old. He’s getting a little annoying (and Meadow too). I’m not going to miss him. He’s going to join the army. Tony and Carmela go to talk to AJ’s therapist which turns into a therapy session for Tony. They bribe AJ into not joining the Army with an executive position on Little Carmine’s new film, eventually a club of his own, and a new BMW. Which was a totally successful ploy. It was nice to see AJ lose the self righteousness and sell out, thats what the Sopranos is all about.
The goodbye to Uncle June was said there was nothing left of him.
In the final segment, Tony is in a diner with Carm and AJ as Meadow tries to park the car. All sorts of shady characters keep coming into the dinner. Just as Meadow enters the dinner, Tony looks up and… the screen goes black. That sucked. After all these years, thats the way they ended it!?!
While they finished off Phil, they left a lot of other lose ends, like the ending! Another example is Carlos, one of Tony’s guys who has flipped and is going to testify against him. The ending was definitely setting things up for a big screen return of the Sopranos. Which really makes me angry with HBO. I really wanted to write a touching tribute to the Sopranos tonight. Instead, I’m just glad its over. After all these years they are still going to leave me hanging.
Next Week: HBO gets canceled.
