I thought it was brilliant.
Yes, both Dave and I stared at the screen thinking out loud "Did the cable just go out? You have GOT to be kidding me!" Dave was the first to figure out it was actually over.
I think the ending means one of two things:
1) Tony died and was whacked by the guy going to the bathroom.
2) Life just goes on. Tony is always going to be paranoid, looking at everyone as possible assassigns. The kids are going to stay in the family business (they both sold out). And Carmella is never going to leave.
But it doesn't matter does it? Aren't the best books you've ever read the ones where you have several ending options to choose from and you really don't know which one is "true?" None are true. All are true.
I thought the ending of that series was brilliant.
Who else thought their cable went out?
