Sopranos Finale: The Meadow Experiment

Friday, June 15, 2007

I am going to show the episode to some people I know who have not seen it, then, when it’s over, ask them

a) what do you think happened?

b) what is the last shot?

These people aren’t Sopranos fans, and thus probably won’t be as heavily invested in the characters as some of us. Nevertheless, it might be interesting.

If you get a chance to do the same, please share your results. I’d love to see whether any of us can reproduce The Misplaced Meadow Effect.

    I’ve never seen an episode of Sopranos before and only watched the last 5 minutes of this one. Tony gets whacked. It is simple to ascertain because every time the bell to the door rings we shift to Tony’s view. Meadow comes in and we switch to Tony’s view which goes black. The 10 seconds of blackness is part of the show not a pause before the credits. In essence the viewer does get whacked because at that part the viewer is Tony.
