HBO (ended 2007)
Okay, just a couple of comments:
1) Yes, as reported, Gina Lynn was in 2 episodes - "All Happy Families", which was Season 5, Ep.4; and "Walk Like A Man", S.6, Ep. 17 (both times as a "Bada Bing Girl"). HOWEVER, I have found *no* proof of her second appearance, other than peekone stating it in post #56 in this topic. Just to be fair to everybody, I believe he's right (if he knows what she looks like he VERY easily coulda recognized her), but I just wanted everybody to know it wasn't a "confirmed sighting" (LOL...).
2) Kingsoprano718 stated, in post #45 of this thread that, quote, "Theyve had enough advanced notice, we should have no lingering questions on anyone". However, David Chase has clearly stated in interviews that everything will NOT be "neatly sewn up", and there will be a GREAT number of questions left unanswered (ie - there won't be a shot of each character with a statement like "AJ goes on to become a janitor, gets married twice, and never does get his college degree" or anything...).
3) The "official" pre-showing episode recap of 'Blue Comet' states: "Mistaken identity comes at a huge cost". Now, I realize most people are saying it's Bobby who dies, but (I don't think) anybody has made it clear how (or if) this relates to "mistaken identity". My friend, however, who works in the movie biz in California and the UK, has heard "from someone in the know" that what happens is this. MEADOW is driving her dad's vehicle, and hitmen, sent to take out Tony, see his vehicle and take out Meadow instead! Now, I realize a large number of even "official" spoilers have been shown to be wrong, or changed, or even just slightly different. However, I thought I'd share it with the group anyways, as people would probably be interested in every possibility.
SPOILERS FOR BLUE COMET!!!!!!!!!
This is the real deal raw un-cut so don't read if you don't want to be spoiled completely.
Silvio finds out from a cop-contact of his that Paulie has flipped, and that it happened off-screen, shortly before season 6b started. He tells Tony about it at the Bing, followed by a long conversation about how they are going to handle the situation. This is what is meant by "He's playing both sides of the fence" from the previews. Tony reveals to Silvio that he was considering killing Paulie on the boat in "Remember When", and regrets not doing it when he had the chance. Silvio gives Tony a weird look because he's not sure why Tony would have wanted to kill Paulie, since he hadn't known he flipped, he wouldn't have had any other good reason. This leads to an argument, in which Silvio begins questioning Tony's leadership and the amount that he cares about looking out for his crew. Tony explodes, and ends up hitting Silvio. Silvio turns back around and hits Tony, and as Tony falls backwards, Silvio realizes what he's done and runs out of the Bing.
Phil decides to retaliate for the fight Tony had with Coco. He says that his decision is to take out Tony's crew one by one.
Bobby does in fact get killed in front of the model train store just as many other spoilers have reported. This is where the episode title comes from. However, his son is not with him.
AJ escapes from the mental facility by jumping out of a window into a dumpster. However, he lands awkwardly and sprains his ankle. He starts calling for help, and nurses from the facility come out and have to help him back in to the building.
There's a scene with the Feds in which they are talking about LCN and one is talking about Paulie Walnuts coming in handy in their case against Tony. The other agent corrects him, say that it is actually Carlo that they flipped recently. The other cop is stunned, but he never gets a chance to get back to Silvio with the truth ....
Tony gets a call from Silvio on his cell, who is calling to ask for forgiveness. Tony had a Melfi scene in which he realized Silvio might have been right in his opinion of Tony, and is no longer really mad at Sil. Tony tells him to meet him at the Bing to talk, and that they can't let their feud distract them from taking care of Paulie, who will be a big problem. Tony is late getting to the Bing because Carmella calls him to say that there's something wrong with AJ, and so Tony has to meet her at the hospital first.
Silvio gets to the Bing and is confronted by two hit-men that were hired by Phil. Having never seen the killers before, he is shot dead believing that he was actually set up by Tony. Patsy comes out as the murder takes place, and is caught off guard. The hit-men think they must now kill Patsy too, but he manages to narrowly escape on foot.
I'm told the scene at the hospital is very emotional, as AJ begs to come home and Carmella tells him that she can't take all his nonsense anymore, and that she can't emotionally handle it.
Tony stops by the Bing and when he learns what happened he quickly leaves, afraid he will be in danger too. At home, he gets a call from Janice that Bobby was shot dead. He tells Carm, who breaks down and cries again - Between AJ and Bobby, we see her really begin to lose it in this episode.
The episode closes at Silvio's wake. Patsy is there and has told Tony what happened. They are also talking about Bobby. The rest of his crew is there at the service to, trying to get Tony to start a war with Phil and retaliate. Tony just stands there in silence. At the end of the episode, he sees some flowers that were sent with a card on it from the FBI. Tony looks thoughtfully at the card as the scene fades out, and we're left to wonder if that's the only place left for Tony to turn."
From the deadwood stage
Sorry to tell you guys so late but it sounds like the summary was a fake, i got the info from the deadwood stage. But it seems that the summary is fake, a very good and detailed fake, but a fake none the less.
Its funny i know two guys that are on the show. Tony's driver the big fat guy(Dante Greco) is my best friends cousin, so i see him pretty often, he could'nt tell me anything about the finale. And my dad's good friends with the actor that played Gerry Torciano (the cat that got killed right infront of silvio in the resturant this season). It did'nt matter how many people i knew that were in the show though, because they were'nt saying a thing.
Once again sorry about that.
I agree it was very well done. I don't understand why they needed to add a guy on motorcycle getting run over in the middle of this chaos but whatever. Also, where are god damn feds and why haven't they moved in? The history of this show had Feds always up New Jersey's ass and now blood is spilling onto the streets and they're currently MIA?
My own personal opinion is that Tony survives. Obviously Phil gets killed next week but I'm very curious to see what happens other than that. I have a feeling we'll just never know about Sil and those are some of the loose ends Chase was talking about.
I wish the spoilers were right when it was mentioned that this episode was to be 90 mintues and next week almost 2 hours. I browsed the HBO forum and noticed that someone over there said that next week is only an hour also. It totally sucks David Chase shortened us with only 9 episodes this "season" so at least make the finale longer than 60 freaking minutes.
As much as I think Frank Vincent (Phil Leotardo) is a fantastic actor and adds so much to the show, I do hope he's tortured in some way. Maybe Tony can kill Phil the way Frank Marino (Frank Vincent ) did to in Joe Pesci in Casino.

Spoiler for next weeks Finale!!!!!!!
Well according to the deadwood Stage.....Highlight to the right to read, there in inviso text....>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Phil gets whacked outside of the raceway gas station infront of his wife and four black kids, the kids are only in the scene i think because one of them throws up after the murder, but it sounds like phil won't suffer too bad, he does get killed though and get this by benny. Tony also lives accordoing to these spoilers i've read it says Tony, Carm, and AJ are at an Ice Cream parlor for the very last scene and that meadow is late meeting them because she is trying to parallel park her car several times. There was also another scene in which Tony meets agent harris at the airport and get this, Pat blundetto is supposed to pop up some where in the episode as well, kinda wierd i think that they bring him back this late unless its for a funeral.
And these spoilers seem to be very on because they actually came from a guy who was on set for the shoots at the gas station and at the ice cream parlor. The airport scene he only read about in the call sheet so i'm not sure if it will actually make it into the episode or not, or if the scene was ever even shot.
|For one thing this is not a season its an extension of season 6 and the extension was only going to be 8 episodes but Chase decided to add one more episode.|
Its funny at first we wer'nt even going to get these 8 episodes, Kaisha at one point was going to be the last episode ever, but i guess they decided they needed more time to wrap it up, so they decided to do another 8 and then we got another episode added on to the 8.
I don't know about next week. I think after Phil gets killed, I doubt there will be much violence after that. Just a gut feeling. I think last night was a brutal as it gets. I really do hope I'm wrong but what are they going to do Kill Tony and Pauly and wipe out NJ completely? I think they're both going to be the last men of NJ standing. Maybe we'll see the left overs from NY getting killed or something.
And please god no more scenes with AJ. Enough is enough. There's no need to show the kids anymore unless they're both on a bus heading to some place very far away.
I'm curious, does anyone know who's house that was at the end? I thought it might of been Livia's but Tony's fat driver had the keys. Tony could of gave the keys to him though.

Hey if you actually read all my posts you would see that i said it was a fake after my original post, a day before the episode aired. When i read the spoiler i believed it to be true because i got it from a reliable source.
