Soprano's 5th Season Finale (6/4) (Spoilers)

    We've had to wait an extra week to see the Soprano's season finale and since the last week or so of TV in general has been pretty shitty (except for the Rescue Me premier), I have really been looking forward to tonight's episode.

    I have been avoiding the previews at all costs -- they are usually misleading -- but I can't help escape the feeling that Tony will lose one of the major members of his crew tonight (this is because my local radio station is promoing that one of Tony's crew will be on tomorrow afternoon and it is unusual to see this character doing interviews after the season has ended).

    If any of you want to know my guess, PM me and I will send it to you. Otherwise, I will keep it to myself.

    i'm cautiously optimistic that this finale will be a worthy episode.

    The nice thing is that it sets up the rest of the season really well.

    I don't know if anyone else noticed it or not, but HBO is not calling it a season finale. HBO is calling the last episode of the year (which, of course, sets up next year nicely).

    predictions, anyone?

    -- My guess is no one gets whacked tonight, but we'll be left hanging with 2-3 major characters in position to be next.

    -- A.J. will not exactly do what Tony had in mind with the new job.

    -- Whitlock will say the episode sucked

    -- oh, and it sets up ...

    Steven Schirripa (Bobby Bacala) on NY radio this week said he does not have a contract for the final mini-season.
    Does that mean Bobby gets whacked tonight?

    That's a pretty good guess, and it sets up Janice coming directly to Tony with all her problems (which she does plenty of already, but if Bobby B. is out of the picture, there's no 'buffer layer' between Janice and Tony). Janice drives Tony nuts enough as it is, that situation could get ratcheted up a few notches with the loss of Bobby.

    Plus, maybe Janice playing an increased/significant role in family business would set her up to be the next big informant for the Feds (foreshadowed by the Tony-Melfi discussion of Janice blackmailing Tony with tape recordings in their teenage years).

    Good theory Starman. It also puts Bobby in the same category as Richie Aprile and Ralphie Cifaretto as Janice's dead exes.

    Last week, Frank Vincent said tonight's episode was a "must-see."

    Maybe Tony can go Michael Corleone on Janice and have Sil take her fishing.

    That's very good, Starman.
    Unfotunately, it involves having to watch Janice whine and bitch her way through another eipsode.

    I think first, he'll go Michael-Connie Corleone with the semi-incestuous overtones as hinted in GF II and III. Also foreshadowed, pretty blatantly, in last episode's Tony-Melfi exchange, with Melfi's discussion of Tony's sexual attraction to Janice.

    I'm personally no big fan of the Janice character myself, but that certainly appears to be one direction they may be heading.
