All of his attempts to "escape" this path (i.e. trying to be Tony Soprano or trying to go home to "Tony Soprano's world") were innefectual. None worked. It is only when he followed the Finnerty path that he came to the place of exit...the house.
I tried to simplify my thoughts for DH on these matters in an earlier post:
<blockquote>Quote:<hr>DH, if I read you right, then Tony Soprano entered this coma world as Kevin Finnerty, and his case wasn’t actually switched or taken by mistake. He entered the “netherworld” with the case already and was meant to find the reunion of those awaiting him in hell, not by mere chance, but by design. His mistaken identity in that place was that he thought he was Tony Soprano. And, every effort to avoid being identified as Finnerty (by hotel clerks, bartenders, doctors, conference assistants, the monks and himself) was never going to get him “home”. He had to make his way to the reunion before he could “enter” and remain in his final destination or “leave” and return to actually being Tony Soprano. <hr></blockquote>
And, now I'm not even sure he had a choice as to whether or not he wanted to go in the house or leave. Only his physical recovery permitted avoiding that fate. Absent that he may have been compelled to enter the house.
