Anyone else want to venture a guess as to what that ending was about?
To those who haven’t seen it – I’d avoid going below the fold – it will be a spoiler.
This is a total spoiler so seriously stop reading if you don’t want to talk about the end of the series.
Watching the show on a DVR I was thinking for a minute, “holy crap TiVo just froze at the worst possible moment.” Then I realized it was purposeful – just a fade to black after a kind of suspicious camera-glance at some customer who came into the bar who made you think Tony was about to be whacked.
I definitely got how A.J. was getting sucked back in to the good life (and maybe into the business) – his temporary satisfaction with being SUV-free ruined by the realization that riding the bus can be a pain in the ass. 23 mpg highway – that’s pretty good! Right? He gets rapidly yanked out of idealism for the temptation of having things easy. That was a great bit. No idea what the conclusion was with Janet, and Junior was totally gorped-out etc. So most of the family story-lines were pretty straight. But the ending was just so unexpected and jarring. As if to say, don’t think to hard about it, it’s just more of the same, these people don’t change.
Anyone having anything else insightful? I have to admit being disappointed.
