    sil already tried taking on the role of acting boss while tony was in the coma. i don't think that worked out so well.

    Well, it was hectic because it was so sudden, Sil was and is the only person who can really take a firm grasp of the family is he is named successor. It would have been bad for anyone taking control during that time.

    not sure I like this gambling bit... is it just me or is this a brand new problem for tony? seems like it might be setting him up for the fall, and it feels a little contrived.

    Everything they do is a gamble... but I agree.

    I predict that almost all of them live with the exception of Chris, and Tony having heavy influence on the New York family. I see Chris being put up as sacrifice to Phil Leatardo for final compensation of the death of his son.

    poor chrissy. i knew it as soon as i saw him put in the departed soundtrack. i was like, car wreck coming. it's time. he had his big goodbye moment for the Emmy last episode and now it's time to go.

    poor aj. welcome to the life. from father to son. lot of good one liners tonight that didn't seem all that funny with christofuh dead.

    i'm laying money that this doesn't end well at all. 50 bucks says tony's a dead man before the end of the last episode. they're not letting us off the hook here. as well they shouldn't. everyone will get what they deserve here. just like real life.

    I have to disagree. Sure, it'll turn into all out warfare, but I don't think T will be the one to go down. Phil is overstepping and he knows it, he has no revenge to extract now that Tony has suffered another death in his family. Phil will be hit but i honestly can't imagine Tony going down.



    I'll take that bet mob.

    hey bluedevil, what didn't you like about the ending? my personal gripe with the show this final season is its overuse of sensationalism to push the story along. tony doing chris in may mean that he has learned nothing from therapy, which cheapens his character in a way as well as psychoanalysis as a whole. but then again, these are sociopaths (or at the very least, misanthropes at heart) that we are dealing with here, so there you go.

    also, buriedlife, i can't in good conscience take that bet. i have a lot of acquaintances in the business and i might know something that you don't, therefore i wouldn't feel right about taking your money. i'm not a complete asshole.

    thanks though. we will see.

    Well from what i got from it, Tony believes that therapy was not going to solve his problems. He thought that because he solved his own problems rather than by communication he was rewarded with good fortune. I would have to agree with mob though, it doesn't seem to cheapen his character by almost denouncing the therapy. In an erratic way, he seems to find himself trying to escape a choice he did not want to make.

    Oh and thanks mob, that would be stealing money, blue money. I'm glad you have a good head on your shoulders.

    because tony believes, for better or worse, that chrissy was bad luck to him. since he began "coincidentally" winning at roulette, he attributed this to the fact that chris was dead. remember, he was also on peyote though (wtf?) which could also explain the screaming at the sun thing at the end. kind of heavy handed, i suppose, but there's no reason to believe that tony couldn't both be delusional as well as have a deep insight while under the influence. again, he was on peyote. that's right, peyote. hey everybody, tony soprano did peyote in vegas. yeah peyote. we get it. so cool.

    yeah, it was kind of a cheap trick. i didn't buy it.

    I was torn with last night episode as either one of the best one's I have seen in a while or just borderline ridiculous. he's smoking paoti now in the desert, come on. But it was great. Anyone else think Dr. Melfi is in with the Feds? there is something about her this season that doesn't add up

    Isn't there a confidentiality agreement that would be broken if she corroborated with the feds? Wwouldn't that invalidate any testimony?

    Yes, last night was just nuts. In the first 10 minutes somebody dying is just like "what the hell?!?!". And the whole Vegas thing was ridiculous, although the chick he was with was HAWT.

    Well what can you say? "Damn it feels good to be a gangster" I think the last hook up was hilarious though, she knocked on the door and was all giving him a look, cut to Tony finishing her off.

    jesus christ that girl was hot.

    I love how they just manufactured some hot piece of ass to who sorta kinda used to know chris just as a flimsy pretext to get Tony off on his little metaphysical journey.

    The ending makes perfect sense to me. His epiphany at the roulette table (btw does anyone else get a kick out of the fact while Tony was at the table it was "mob roulette"?... sorry forget it) was just due to the peyote cutting through all his manufactured tensions and finally realizing he's in complete control of his future. Him yelling at the sun is just being high. I can't think of many better places to be coming down off a peyote trip. It doesn't have to make sense.
