The promos look like this season is going to be fun!

If they weren't so expensive I'd buy the sets to watch prior to the premiere, I wonder if I could blockbuster them fast enough to be caught up.

Ok, re-organized my BB queue, I have 6 weeks to turn over 21 disks, I can do this if I turn them around fast and BB does the same.

Is this spoiler going to be affirmed somehow in the new season?

How is it not affirmed that she's dead? Do they mention her in the preview? It was quite clear they killed her after Christopher informed Tony she was cooperating with the FBI.

I guess since they never showed the shot hitting her, some have wondered if there was a chance the writers left it open so that they could have had Paulie let her live out of compassion. I might buy into that myself if Joey had started tanking last year and been cancelled before they started shooting this season, but I really doubt it the way things played out.

I am jacked as well. I just hope the newly announced and tacked on 7th season of 8 shows does not make for some sloppy, slow episodes this season.

We never saw the Russian's body either but that just got swept under the table I guess.

I don't even think this is plausible, Paulie is not going to risk himself or Tony by letting her live to tell what she knows.

You two are right, not sure what I was thinking. I never said it was plausible, it is just what some have speculated.

POSSIBILITY: Sil let Adriana live because he, too, is working for the feds. Sil didn't know Adriana was talking, but when he found out, he let her go, and the order to whack her was reported to the FBI for use against Tony.

They can't have everyone on the show working for the feds or for New York. Paulie is already in with Johnny Sack if I remember correctly, and is angry with Tony. If Tony also loses Sil, after losing Pussy and (sorta) Paulie, and killing Ralphie, who does Tony have left? Christopher?

Not sure the above needed to be spoilered, as it's mostly just speculation. But I did it anyway.

This is usually how mob bosses go out, though. Nobody with them at the very end except their driver and bodyguards.

My cousin has a small part in a few episodes this season. So I'm looking forward to it more than ever. She wouldn't tell me if she gets whacked or not, too, so there is some suspense involved. The good news, for me anyway, is she's not a bada bing girl.

The relationship between Johnny and Paulie is ovah! Remember how Johnny used to say that he was talking up Paulie to his boss, Carmine? Paulie ran into Carmine at a mutual friends wedding and started talking to him and Carmine had no idea who Paulie was. That put an end to that relationship.

I'll probably order HBO for the HD channel on Feb. 27 and add a 250G HdD to my HR10-250 before that. I've been watching Season 2 lately and I'm ready for new eps!

They just aired this episode tonight, no way she lived.

Of course she's dead. That's why she even TOOK the role in Joey. It would be too unbelieveable if she was allowed to live.

Do we really need all the spoiler tags. This was something that aired almost 2 years ago.

Yes, because there is no spoiler tag on the title! If we were to post normally, SOMEONE would complain!!

That's rediculous. There should be a statute of limitations on spoilers.

I'm really excited about AJ's new look in the previews. Will he become another rich punk (like in real life?) or pick up the reigns from his dad?

I'm also interested in seeing what happens with Tony and Carmella's relationship.

Tony has always been adament that AJ not follow him into the life, look at what happened with Jackie Jr., but then again Jackie was being guided by Ralphie and his uncle, as well as Christopher(against Tony's wishes), not exactly stable role models in any life.

Tony was grooming Christopher to lead the family after him, but Chris is unstable, so I wouldn't be surprised if he starts grooming AJ.

I've missed so much and don't remember much of what I saw (I know that it was some about Adriana talking to the Feds)... I wonder if I can jump back into this season.

You might try and catch the eps that HBO and HBO 2 are showing, they are running different episodes from dif seasons, so either wishlist them or set up multiple sp's.

HBO has pulled me back in...Just when I thought I was OUT!

LOL. I was planning on canceling HBO and going to a different movie package at the end of Feb. But then I saw the previews for Sapranos. Dang if I just have to see them. Oh well at least they will only be on for a few months. Then HBO will get the axe.....but then Inside the NFL will start up again...and I will be pulled back in!.....Doh.

IIRC, when she took the part on Joey, David Chase was kind of coy about Adriana, that she was STILL a member of the cast. Of course that was before she got whacked. It was Sil who did the whacking, which is unusual since, I don't recall too many times he has done whacking on the show. I just don't think they wanted to show Adriana getting shot because she has always been a pretty popular character and a woman. I think a lot of the fandom supported what she did and how she really had no choice. So yes, I believe she's dead, but I think because the show does do flashbacks, we might see Adriana a few times during the season

The one other time I recall Sil being directly involved was with Big Pussy.

Come to think of it I don't think they've ever even had minor story lines regarding Sil.

Sil being the consigliare, I don't think they are usually involved in whackings and the like. That is why it was so unusual for Sil to do this whacking. My guess is it was done that way to give Adriana a false sense of security, figuiring that she wouldn't suspect him of killing her, and if I recall, it really wasn't until they stopped in the woods that she realized what was going to happen.

Well, the fact that Sil took Adriana into the woods after finding out she was a snitch is a spoiler.

Whether or not she's actually dead is speculation, but its speculation that pretty directly references the spoiler above.
