Edwin Drood-esque Ending: The Sopranos

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m pretty disappointed that Dickens died before he could finish The Mystery of Edwin Drood. This got me thinking about other times I have been disappointed by an ending to a book, film, or TV Series. One time was the ending to Inception with that stupid top spinning in the last scene. Was it going to fall or no? Was poor Oscar-less Leo still dreaming or was he awake? ┬áBut at least the movie was only 2 and a half hours long, so I wasn’t that invested. However, I just remembered the ending to the HBO series The Sopranos, and that had to be the worst of them all. It is very Drood-esque actually, with the scene just cutting to black and boom, it was over. I had watched all six seasons of the show, I binged on HBO Go until my eyes bled sometimes, and I was left with that? All I can say is that at least Dickens had an excuse for Drood, but come on David Chase, how was this the ending you decided on?…Sopranos Ending
