I'm new here, and wanted to touch on some things. Love the series of course, best show ever :) Please forgive me if I'm ignorant about anything, although I've seen the entire series, I tend to forget things sometimes.

I think this is just to further signify that this is the end. Every season (except 1 I think) started with Tony getting the paper. This is the last season, and he's not getting the paper anymore :)

I think Blanka is a gold digging freak personally. She's a single mother, poor, with no future. She saw AJ as an opportunity to get out of life easy, with lots of money and the finer things. When it didn't go down like that, she got furious and is acting the way she is now. Isn't she Puerto Rican or something? I'm surprised Tony didn't make any comments yet, he seems pretty racist.
The bloody train is bloody late, you bloody wait, you bloody wait, you're bloody lost and bloody found, stuck in fucking chicken town.
Think this line here has an impact on the mob situation with Tony. There is no way out, he's stuck. The mob is "chicken town".
FlyOnMelfisWall wrote:So, in effect, her spiritual advisor told her at the beginning of the series that the way to change Tony was to genuinely love him.
Good point. I also think she really loves him, like a good woman loves her husband. It's becoming more and more evident, especially in the first ep of this season, "Tony is not a vindictive man". A great woman stands by her man no matter what.

He already has once, on JR :)

See, the more I think about it, the more I think they totally could have sold me on this, had they not felt the need to include that damn birthday nonsense!
The birthday nonsense is very vital I think. It's saying that Phil has a problem getting over things, he let's them brew and brew until he explodes. A sign of things to come. Look how upset he still is over Leotardo. He's only going to get worse. A true phychopath in the making.
chaseisgod wrote:That would be fantastic. Part of me is secretly hoping that Chase will do the unexpected. In other words, almost everyone thinks Tony the mobster thug has to be "punished." Crime does not pay and all of that.
This is true. Chase said in an interview that the "crime doesn't pay thing has been done too many times, I'm not going to portray that message". What's interesting is to try and figure out what that means. Does Tony live a full life, dying in a chair of old age, or maybe of a heart attack while playing with his grandson? (not literally of course, GF references).

I think this is a hilarious crack at Vito being gay. Blood Sweat and Tears...I'll refrain from explaining that one. Also the "Life Free or Die", that's what happened to Vito, he tried to life free, but couldn't stay away "every time I try to get out, they pull me right back in", so he died because of it.
chaseisgod wrote:Anyway, in the first episode of 6A, I never understood why Tony was gorging himself on sushi. Was the point that he's the shark?
I think it was representative of Tony's over indulgance in everything he's involved with, also tying into the solo trips mentioned earlier that Carmella was so upset about. Without Carmella by his side, he over indulges in everything, even something as simple as eating sushi. She's not there and he's stuffing his face like mad. Same with women on the side, the mob life, etc. Just a thought
This is a cool forum btw. I like it here. Some very smart people :)
