I'm not sure if this was answered already, but the brilliant ending was this: Claire is driving to New York and while she is driving they had this amazing song playing and they are showing glimpses of what happens to everyone in the future: I mean way into the future. They show how every single main character dies! And they last scene is Claire old in her bed and then she closes her eyes and passes away. She lived until 102 years old. What was amazing is that no questions got unanswered. We knew how EVERYTHING ended.

He specifically says, "Anybody who wants to watch it, it's all there."

Yeah, but see, an ending like that makes sense for that show. It would not be an appropriate ending for The Sopranos.

I'm over it now anyway, too many other things to gear up for this summer, lol.

Yes, I don't get why this would translate into not really having an ending though.

Meaning he wasn't trying to say FU to the viewers or try to piss them off intentionally, which is what many people are claiming.

It doesn't translate into we had a great well thought out ending either but doesn't really matter anymore anyway.

Well I personally thought it was a great, well thought out ending and I don't think anything they have him quoted as saying would mean otherwise.

But I agree that it doesn't matter much at this point - I can now focus on Entourage instead.

And, seeing as no previous episodes ended in mid-sentence like that, neither was the Sopranos finale. If you're going to pull David Lynch tricks, you should probably, you know, be David Lynch.

Whether you believe Tony's life goes on unchanging, or whether you believe it ends in an instant, the last scene, and for that matter the episode as a whole, works either way.

there is an article on CNN in which someone from HBO suggests that the people who think Tony is dead may be right...

and, apparently, not to leave the "other" side of Journey out, they interviewed Neal Schon too.

The CNN article in question:

http://www.cnn.com/2007/SHOWBIZ/TV/0...eut/index.html

The big "clue" seems to be the flashback about the conversation between Tony and Bobby about it just going black. Personally, while it can definitely mean Tony was whacked, I like the idea of the viewer being "whacked" from the series. JMHO.
