When the Soprano family meet at Everyone - Tony May - Timeless diner for a meal, this man enters the diner ahead of Anthony Soprano, Jr. Over the course of the next few minutes, he glances twice at the family's table before standing up, walking past the table before entering the restroom. However, while the evidence for it outweighs possible evidence against it, there are three things hinting that nothing happened to Tony Soprano:. It is unknown what the ultimate fate of Tony Soprano is, and if the mysterious man in the "Members Only" jacket was the hitman who took Tony's life.

Behind the scenes Edit Fans are divided on the issue of what happens in the final scene of the series, though many believe that Tony Soprano is murdered and that the man in the Member's Only jacket Guitar Solo - Queen - Rock Montreal (DVD) his killer.
Possible evidence from the show itself to support this theory is: In the episode "Members Only", Vito Spatafore makes fun of Eugene Pontecorvo for wearing a jacket with the logo Members Only Stiertrage Im Hof - Hermann Nitsch - Das 6-Tage-Spiel Des Orgien Mysterien Theaters it.
Eugene does not answer and gives Vito a secretive and intense look. This may have been a clue to convey to the audience that he was part of another secret and unmentioned gang, that the man that allegedly shot Tony wearing a similar jacket may have been a part of, as a revenge against Tony for refusing Eugene to get his relocating wish fulfilled and ultimately committing suicide.
The previous episode The Blue Comet contains a flashback to a scene from Soprano Home Movies in which Robert Everyone - Tony May - Timeless , Jr and Tony Soprano discuss what it's like being killed, saying "in our line of work, it's always out there.
You probably don't even hear it when it happens". While the flashback may or may not be referring to this scene, the cut to black and complete silence would be exactly what Bobby described. David Chase sets up a pattern of point of view shots where we see a shot of Tony, then his point of view of someone walking into the restaurant when the bell on the door rings, and then the reaction shot.
Following this pattern, we hear the bell ring as Meadow opens the door, we get the shot of Tony, then right when we should see Meadow walking in from Tony's point of view, we get black nothingness. Had Meadow not experienced trouble parallel parking her car, she Watching Me Fall - The Cure - Bloodflowers have been in the restaurant seated beside her dad Tony opposite AJthus blocking the hitman's shot.
The screen abruptly cuts to black and all sound mutes as opposed to the fade in most other episodes that keeps the soundtrack running which goes hand in hand with the above-mentioned discussion.
The person staring at Tony Soprano and walking to the bathroom is significant enough to be credited, with a special mention to his "Members Only" jacket. The "Members Only" man simply can be seen to represent everyone Tony has wronged throughout his life. He is also the only patron we see walking into the diner before we get Tony's point of view of him walking into the diner followed by AJ. A hitman walking into a bathroom to retrieve his weapon is reminiscent of a famous scene from The Godfatherin which Michael Corleone does so before murdering a rival and a police captain.
It's the only time in the series Tony is seen peeling an orange, an obvious reference to The Godfather movies where oranges are closely Everyone - Tony May - Timeless with an approaching death or being shot. The scene has been edited in a way that builds up tension, which naturally leads the audience on to believe something momentous is going to happen which may or may not be the case. Many of the patrons in the diner represent an event from previous episodes that involved killing someone.
Dead or in Jail. We saw Johnny Sackanother boss, go the route going to jail. We also saw Little Carmine Lupertazzi step away from the title of Boss to enjoy and live his life.
So it would make sense that we see Tony take the other path, death. Patsy Parisi at one point in the series pointed a gun at Tony Soprano through his home's window overlooking his swimming pool and considered shooting him to death, as revenge for Everyone - Tony May - Timeless Gigi Cestone to kill his twin brother Phillip "Philly Soons" Parisi. Even in his drunken stupor, Patsy decided against it and instead urinated in Tony's swimming pool. Patsy Parisi may have hired the hitman to kill Tony.
Silvio Dante was shot several times and left in a coma by a man wearing the same "Members Only" jacket who was part of the Lupertazzi family hit squad sent by Phil Leotardo. It is unknown if this is the same man or merely someone associated with him who has similar taste in clothing. Despite the hit on Phil Leotardo being sanctioned by the Lupertazzi family, the job was done very messily with Phil being killed in front of his wife and infant grandchildren, and then having his Teamsters - Feels Like Love crushed by his moving SUV that was stuck in drive.
Tony may have been shot to death at the diner in front of his family to send a message that if you perform a messy hit like that, you'll die in another messy hit as punishment. Relating to the above, Tony may have been considered a loose end to the new leadership of the Lupertazzi family, and killing him was likely considered severing the final link between them and the Phil Leotardo hit.
Instead of the screen fading to black and the credits rolling, it is an abrupt cut to a black screen that lasts for at least 3 seconds, suggesting it was an important part of the episode itself and not just a mere transition to the credits. However, while the evidence for it outweighs possible evidence against it, there are three things hinting that nothing happened to Tony Soprano: We never actually see anything happen other than suggestive editing - we don't even see a gun.
Or to put it more simply, we do not see Tony Soprano die on screen. The lyrics of the Heaven - Charles Lloyd - The Water Is Wide Journey song Don't Stop Believin' indicate that life goes on despite all the trouble. The jacket of the Members Only guy doesn't have a logo on it.
Maybe that means that he - like the jacket - is an imitation, not the real thing. There was seemingly no reason for him to be killed - the hit on Phil Leotardo had been sanctioned by the Lupertazzi crime family. On the contrary, having Tony gone may have still been convenient for the Everyone - Tony May - Timeless family had their new leadership wanted Dee Clark - Im Goin Home power and influence, and there were rogue members of the DiMeo family who'd have reasonable motives for killing their boss.
