Oboglo Posits Possible Soprano Outcomes. I Respond,

Ah, the honor of being mentioned in Kwame Oboglo's comedy blog.

On a completely unrelated front, Michael Robertson in his blog “Darwin’s Cat” speculates on the fate of Tony Soprano next Sunday in the series’ climactic episode. By coincidence, my lovely wife Gloria also offered a possible scenario just before I logged onto Robo’s blog. Her take: the shrink’s rejection of Tony was so glaringly unprofessional that she has second thoughts, asks him to come in to accept her apology, a hit team arrives while he is there and, in Glo’s words, “He takes a bullet for her.”

I think that’s somewhat farfetched, which is probably in its favor as a possibility. My take, however, is that Tony reflects on the shrink’s abandonment of him, and on the utter wussie uselessness of his son, and his own murder of his spiritual “son,” Christopher, and other elements of wreckage in his life, and leaves his safe house to return to the Bada Bing where, when the assassins arrive, he does nothing to defend himself, in effect committing suicide by hitman.

Either than, or he wakes up in bed with Bob Newhart and Suzanne Pleshette.
