Though somewhat opinion based, I think it's relatively safe to assume that this seals Adriana's fate. Chris sees his future family life in the gas station: nagging kids, annoying wife, a beat up car and, most importantly, a very tired and fed-up looking husband. Chris's face says it all, this is not the future for him. His next move is to go to Tony, which ...

Chase is on record as saying that Tony did not get whacked From the same piece: "There are no esoteric clues in there. No 'Da Vinci Code,"' Chase states matter-of-factly. And he feels the show concluded on a hopeful note. A.J. will "probably be a low-level movie producer. But he's not going to be a killer like his father, is he? ...

No, he was never referred to again. I assumed that he got away and kept his head down from there on out. In an interview with Terrence Winter and David Chase it was revealed that they kept it intentionally vague (emphasis added): Perhaps the biggest legacy of ''Pine Barrens'' is what you don't see, i.e., what becomes of the Russian. It has become one ...

Big Pussy was killed by Tony, Pauli and Silvio for being an FBI informer - however he had been a very close friend to all of them, and it is hinted in the series that they are all bothered by their involvement in their killing of a friend. Pussy's appearance in the mirror is after Tony's mother's funeral, when clearly he would be thinking about the past and ...

You're talking about the episode "Long Term Parking". In that episode, as Christopher is contemplating turning informant, he goes to buy a pack of smokes and sees a family of schmucks piled into an old beat up car. Chris realizes that he doesn't want to be like them, working for a living and getting nowhere, so he decides against turning into a snitch.

There are more credits after that point. Here's a screen capture from the DVD release: As you can see, Paolo Colandrea is credited as "Man in Members Only Jacket" at 59:28.

From the 12/5/2012 Slate article David Chase Doesn’t Care About the Russian: “Who gives a shit about this Russian?” David Chase says. The creator of The Sopranos has never understood his audience’s fascination with Valery, the Russian mobster who disappeared in the legendary “Pine Barrens” episode. It was a one-off story that needed no closure, ...

It remains unknown. "Who gives a s@%# about this Russian?” --David Chase Not everything gets solved in The Sopranos. The most famous examples of this particular narrative tendency are the mystery of the vanishing Russian in Pine Barrens, and of course Putting aside the significance of the quote itself and the role of wind in that cluster of season 6 ...

I'm going to answer this. Based on the following I've concluded that tony was in fact the boss in the pilot. No mention of Jackie Junior says "you may run north jersey but you don't run your uncle junior" to tony..North Jersey is the sopranos territory.if junior and tony were both caporegimes and at the same level like in the second episode this quote ...

To me, Tony's attitude about the painting was that it was not just a reminder of Pie-O-My but also a reminder of his murder of Joey Pants after he found out that Joey had the stable burned down (among other things, most notably Joey's murder of Tracee, his role in inducing Jackie Jr. to rob the card game which led to his murder, etc.). I think Tony stared ...

Melfi has a history of alcohol abuse. Kupferberg is aware of this and is afraid that Melfi might use alcohol to escape her guilt about abandoning Toni. He uses the term sugar substitutes as a euphemism for alcohol. Alcohol is not a sugar in the chemical sense, but rather a product of fermenting sugar. It can however, toxic effects left aside, serve as a ...

I don't think he's hinting at anything but rather advising Melfi about her health. Sugar substitutes (AKA sweeteners) might be as detrimental to your health as sugar and might lead to weight gain.* From the Wikipedia page about sugar substitutes: A 2012 study at Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul showed that addition of either saccharin or ...

I think It was a spiritual miracle. The saying was put up there by the Buddhist monks in Tony's coma vision/dream. Or maybe it was put up there by Janice's narcoleptic ex/friend, Aaron Arkaway the "have you heard the good news?" guy. I still put more faith in the latter.

It seems like they try to fudge it with this line in the second episode - Tony Soprano: You know, you got a reputation for immaturity, and its not gonna be improved by not paying the tributes the acting boss demands of you. Brendan Filone: Acting boss my ass Ton'. Come on, everybody knows you really run things since Jackie became the Chemosabe.
