Okay, I’m not afraid to admit it: I don’t get it.
I mean, was I the only one who saw the scene cut to black and silence, followed by silent credits? WTF?
All right, maybe there was no good way to end that series after all these years, but an abrupt cut to black silence for no reason? After all the buildup in that scene? Was it meant to evoke the idea that Tony and his kin would live under a sword of Damocles all the days of their lives? That the saga would march onward, and this is simply where we got cut loose?
Or was it just Milch Chase and his team in the Avid suite tossing up their hands in defeat and saying, “We give up. Just cut it there and call it avant-garde so we can leave and get dinner.”
I can’t quite put my finger on it…but I feel ripped-off.
