Only about 150 hours to go…

Sopranos07_58_2Oh, it’s getting good.
Last night’s penultimate “Sopranos” installment laid down more unraveling threads for what will undoubtedly expected to be a monster of a finale this Sunday. “Sopranos” capo David Chase is indicating that he’s going to spare no fan favorites. Bobby Bacala, Tony’s brother-in-law (played by Steven Schirripa, pictured left), survived actually punching Tony out at the start of this season but couldn’t escape Phil Leotardo’s wrath in last night’s episode. But the most dramatic moment came when Tony’s lifeline to sanity, Dr. Melfi, sternly decided to cut him loose. Tony’s so desperate at this point he can’t even hang on to a truly professional shrink-client relationship. He sounded beyond pathetic in citing the “progress” he feels he’s making. Melfi seemed to speak for viewers in pointing out the obvious: It’s been seven years, and he’s still a sociopath. Yet as always, you couldn’t help feel sorry for him in the last shot after he’s sent his family off into hiding and he’s left to curl up with a gun. Now we’ve only got about 150 hours to ponder what will be Tony’s ultimate fate, coming this Sunday night.
