For those of you who haven't yet watched tonight's episode, I won't give the details away, but it seems pretty clear where David Chase is leading us as he wraps up the seven years of this outstanding HBO series.

Once we let those who have Tivo'ed tonight's episode to catch up, anyone interested in starting a pool as to how the series ends?

Well, I can't wait for the season to be over because we don't get the Suprano's unless we get a special pay preview channel. But once the season is over, they run it on our regular cable TV and we don't have to pay for it.

Real good.

My favorite scene was the one in which AJ starts to cry and Tony lets the little twit have it.

The way it's looking from the coming attractions for next weeks episode, and from what has conspired this season up to this point I figure it like this.

Paulie either betrays Tony to NY, and it becomes obvious that he should have killed him on that boat in Miami when he had the chance like he did with Christopher. Or Paulie saves Tony, either way I think Paulie is going to be the key to everything.

Janice is in shock so she's out of the picture, Sil is in bad shape at the hospital, the guy with Sil ( I can't remember his name) is probably still running through that creek. That leaves Tony with a small Crew of people we never got to know during the series and Paulie. Paulie is either going to come through for "T" with a tremendous act of bravery and loyalty making Tony's suspicions of Paulie all seem misguided, or Tony will be dead because he did not carry out killing Paulie when his intuitions were telling him to do it.

Overall I'm very excited how this episode played out.

I was really disappointed with the two previous episodes. They looked like filler, and if I were to rewatch the series from beginning to end, I'd probably skip those. The only reason for having AJ attempt suicide was to lay some guilt on the psychiatrist. So here's what I think will happen--Tony will get clipped, but survive (again), but the shrink will hear he got shot, and commit suicide out of guilt and frustration with her own shrink for breaking her confidence. There will be a slow pan out in the final scene of Malfi lying on the floor with a gun in her hand and blood pooling up beside her.

Well, at least that's what I'd do.  silly 

BTW, is next week just an hour, or is it 90 minutes like a couple of the season finales have been?

I saw Bacala getting killed. I didn't think Sil would - or at least end up in as bad shape as he is in. I also think Paulie will play heavy into what happens to Tony. As it stands now, if Tony survives, Paulie gets the bump right to Underboss or Consigliere. Paulie could also sell Tony out and take over everything. I can't wait to see what happens, yet I don't want to as well, because it means the show will be over.

And how ridiculous is Carm? Giving Tony crap when he tells her she needs to get out of the area.

What I don't get: You know Phil and his crew are gunning for you, why aren't your guys packing serious heat? Sil had his Adriana Killer in his briefcase.

AJ should be a human shield, he is sick you know...

What's with Melfi? Everyone has been beating her head that she enables Tony...

Bobby died with what he loved, his trains...

The crew that went to whack Phil and the communications network was pure Keystone Cops.

Paulie isn't bright enough for that. And I don't think there's enough time left in the show for that to develop.


I say Tony will get scared, think about his family, and run to the Feds - maybe he'll get killed on the way; maybe it'll end like Goodfellas.

NJ wanted to distant themselves from the hit on Phil, hence the "networking". Similar to the first time those guys came over to wack Rusty. Definatley one of the best and darkest episodes ever. I like to think of myself as part of the NJ crew, but in real life the five families of New York always looked down on the NJ guys. Each NY family has about 200 soldiers and NJ is a small fraction of that. Going to war needs to be avoided at all costs, it's a no win situation. it was cool to see the Tony and his guys literally "go to the mattresses". The only thing is, war is bad for buisness. No one is out making money and instead watching thier backs.

It will be interesting to see what happens next week. I was shocked to see Dr. Melfi finally loose her cool and give up on Tony. I hope Tony and the family (both) pull through, but I can't help but to think hearing what a real life FBI agent once said. There's no retiring for these guys, it's either death, jail, or they flip. Next week we'll see. What an awesome series, one of the best ever.

After asking Tony for money to help keep Uncle Jr out of a state facilty, I think she is on Tonys shit list.

Quoting STT757 (Reply 5):

Actually, he always has been. He is the volitile force that has kept everyone in New York at bay, they fear him more than Tony because Paulie has nothing to lose and is a lose cannon.

BTW, I think it is hillarious that this character is played by a real wise guy who had done hard time.

Quoting STT757 (Reply 5):
That leaves Tony with a small Crew of people we never got to know during the series and Paulie.

There are several captains with him that have replaced dead captains over the years. I somehow think meadows potiential father in law will have something to do with what happens next, after he stops running.

I swear I heard the tune to "The Best is Yet to Come" in that music. I haven't found out what it is yet though I'm looking.

Edit: It is called Running Wild (extended instrumental) by somebody/someone called Tindersticks. Very crepy sound to it.

Oooh, you're an evil SOB with that line of thinking...but I like it!

Here's my take on things though. The preview for next week said "no more hiding" and you see Phil plus you know you'll see Tony. I wonder if the FBI agent is letting Tony know the hit is out on him so he can have Phil and Tony take each other out so he can look good to his bosses for destroying both families.

As with all things similar, the part after "outta there" is missing but implied:

"Outta there unless the money is right" is more like it.

Paulie is not smart enough to be boss, but to be underboss or Consigliere he could handle. He would get one of those slots based on hus senority. If not, he might have to be whacked, because he's not going to like Patsy being the number 2 etc.

I think there is a good chance of Tony taking out Phil, but T is not a member of the Lupertazi family, so he wouldn't be able to just step in and be boss. it doesn't work that way.

I think Tony takes out Phil, and his right hand guy the one who Tony put a gun in the face of when he beat up Coco? Then NJ makes peace with the guy at the table who was hesitant about what Phil wanted to do. The old guy with glasses and beard, he becomes the new boss of NY.

He absolutely can if he kills all the right people. The rest all become part of HIS family, not the other way around.

Dude, I'm telling you, he can't (on top of that being absurd). David Chase isn't going to re-write Mafia History to the point where one guy will go from being Boss of one family to being the Boss of another. A NY Family is much larger than the Jersey faction so Tony would be killing a whole lot of guys, then by some miraculous change of events, take over the NY Family as well. Its not not possible. It would never happen in real life and its not going to happen here.

And this is where Carmine Lupertazzi Jr. might finally decide to step in - he's always seemed afraid of Phil Leotardo to some degree and this could be his time (at least to help Tony vs. Phil, anyway).
