The Sopranos Final Scene Explained Sun, 12/22/13 5:58 AM (permalink)
Yeah, we all kinda got the drift that Tony met his demise. 
 
And, yeah it was the guy who left the counter and went to the restroom, but we've seen that before somewhere. 
 
But the ending ... well, most thought was a more than a little disappointing, even a "rip off" (Michael goes potty and comes out with the gun Clemenza had hidden). 
  
Including me.
 
Until I came across this yesterday:
 

 
Now, I see it as a perfect ending, a work of cinematic art truly worthy of the finest drama ever put on TV.
 
Chase rules!

        I thought it was well explained and made sense. Except how did Tony become a mob boss without knowing that Member's Only jackets are still only worn by fellow mobsters?

          I don't know about anyone else, but I've never been able to see the videos you post here. I was able to see it using the URL porkbeaks posted.

              I didn't. But that's likely because I never saw the show.
