The above is a thread of mine from may 16th in the non spoiler based forum. It is titled "there's no way tony can turn rat".bigbadbill007 wrote:I cannot see in a million years that Tony will turn rat. it would destroy the whole sopranos franchise. The worst thing a person can be is a rat. no matter what the circumstances, people who turn informer are seen as scum by most people
Tony sopranos is a hero to millions of men and women. He is probably more popular than any movie star or singer. If he turned rat, it would destroy the whole tony soprano enterprise. he would no longer be idolized
They cannot kill him off, in case they end up doing more episodes or a film in years to come. I see him either being jailed or there being a mysterious ending where everyone will be asking is he dead. but the show will be leave the door open for a return
It would make for some great television seeing Tony, Paulie and Silvio in jail
In the UK years ago, the main character in the very popular soap east enders was supposedly shot dead by a guy holding a gun behind daffodils. but they never showed this character (Dirty Den Watts) taking the bullets thus leaving the door open for a return 14 years later
I believe the ending will be along the above lines or TS and his boys in jail
I am not happy that i was right. I would of wanted us to have a conclusive ending.
BUT MONEY TALKS
they could never kill him off until the money well dries up. David Chase had no control over the ending. HBO or whoever runs the corporation that is the sopranos decides on that.
