First thought, after that cut to black: T got iced.
Second thought, while taking a slash: way too obvious.
Third thought, watching again: Chase couldn’t have visualised his condemnation of this fucking poisonous family any better, or come up with a sentence more cruel, if he’d had another eight years.
That was one cold finale. Right now, Tony Soprano is simultaneously both dead and alive; because the episode went to black when it did, he always will be.
That goddamn cat.
