Not even close on the Sopranos.
Joanne Weintraub in this morning's Journal-Sentinel thinks the ending was "sweet," although she acknowledges that a less benign interpretation is possible.
The ending was, in fact, both sweet and ominous. Does Tony look up to see his daughter or a hit man? Does he see anything at all or has he wound up like Phil Leotardo whose last vision is of his wife and grandchildren before he is shot in the head by an assailant that he never sees? (Jim Rowen reminds us that Bobby said "you probaby never hear it when it happens" although Bobby certainly did.)
Of course, we get no answer but maybe we don't need one. It could have been Meadow this time. What about the next? Will it be murderous rivals? Will it be the feds? And even if it isn't, will he wind up like Junior unable to remember any of it? Will it all turn out to be, as his mother said, a big nothing. Can he do anything but focus on the good times for which he has paid so dearly?
