this has all been disproven already actually.
OK, at first I was really angry. I mean really, really angry. I can't believe though that no-one has posted by now what happened. The only thing I saw that was right, was that in the last scene we are seeing through Tony's eyes. Remember when he was speaking with Bobby...basically saying that you don't see it happening?
yeah, in the first episode bobby said, "you prob dont even hear it coming when it happens"
so this theory may be correct...but no one can know for sure. if they would of killed tony for sure there'd be no chance for a movie with the sopranos in the future.. no movie=no $$$$...therefore my theory is, tony isnt dead. that and the last shot WASNT filmed through tonys eyes, so what makes more sense is that the audience got wacked and our portal into tony's life was cut off. quick, dark, and silent.
So here is what I found out. The guy at the bar is also credited as Nikki Leotardo. The same actor played him in the first part of season 6 during a brief sit down concerning the future of Vito. That wasn't that long ago. Apparently, he is the nephew of Phil. Phil's brother Nikki Senior was killed in 1976 in a car accident. Absolutely Genius!!!! David Chase is truly rewarding the true fans who pay attention to detail.
the nikki leotardo thing isnt true. if it is, ask that dude to find ANYWHERE where any credits say anything in the last episode about there being a nikki leotardo. false rumors, and urban sopranos myths here...sorry people.
So the point would have been that life continues and we may never know the end of the Sopranos. But if you pay attention to the history, you will find that all the answers lie in the characters in the restaurant. The trucker was the brother of the guy who was robbed by Christopher in Season 2. Remember the DVD players? The trucker had to identify the body. The boy scouts were in the train store and the black guys at the end were the ones who tried to kill Tony and only clipped him in the ear (was that season 2 or 3?).
A.the trucker may have been the brother of someone chris wacked...maybe..
B. the boy scouts that were in the train store had nothing to do with bobby dying and its laughable to think they had a motive to kill tony. these are little kids...boy scouts were talking about. at best this argument could symbolize death..but everyone knows the color white and white shoes is what symbolized death in the last season and there wasnt any white present in the last scene.
C.lastly, the black dudes who entered the store in the last scene were NOT the same people that were hired to try and kil tony like 4 seasons back because they themselves were killed. pop POP...there goes that theory...
Absolutely incredible!!!! There were three people in the restaurant who had reason to kill Tony and then it just ends. This was Chase's way of proving that he will not escape his past. It will not go on forever despite that he would like it to "don't stop". Not the fans!!! Tony would like it to keep going but just as we have to say goodbye, so does he. No more Tony and I guess we are supposed to be happy that Meadow didn't get clipped as well (she would have been between the shooter and Tony) since she is the only one worth a crap in that family.
Thank you David Chase for making it so obscure that I feel bad for hating you at first. Absolutely amazing!!!!"
and heres an excellent example of people drawing conclusions of what they will just because they need somthing to hang onto. im supprised that he didnt have a conspiracy theory for why the first episode ended with the song "this magic moment" which was one of the same songs in the juke box machine tony was scrolling through in the last scene.
personally. its difficult to get the significance of a lot of details in the story. and there was a lot of detail and symbolism. im not gonna sit here and be a theorist..."oh, oh, the cat was aidrianna.... oh, oh, when tony looked up the song ended on the words "Dont Stop""
...but i do like reading other peoples thoughts and stuff. especially the ones that can easily be shot down right outta the sky.
