Warning -- spoilers follow. Don't read if you haven't seen last night's show.
Last night's Sopranos took us right to the edge of a very tall cliff, let us look over the edge, and then said "Hang here till next week."
Even so last night's Sopranos left us with a satisfied yet bitter-sweet feeling. They said to us, we can take it all from you, and just to show you, we'll let one of your favorite characters speak on your behalf.
"It's a thankless job," says Johnny Sack.
Like a rock concert where every member of the band gets to play one solo before walking off-stage, even minor characters remind you of their character.
Oh it's going to be quite a show. They've carved out an ambitious stage, positioning Tony as a latter-day Michael Corleone. Great drama, acting, music, theatrics, chutzpah.
Let's hope they can live up to the hype!
