You Probably Don't Even Hear It When It Happens

Made In America
The Sopranos - Season 6, Episode 21  (June 10, 2007)
The diner scene at the end of The Sopranos seems to have upset a lot of people, but I think it was perfect.  The reason that the music abruptly stops and that the screen goes black for a while before the credits roll is because Tony was assassinated.  It happens just like Bobby Bacala says it would in the flashback that Tony has in the previous episode: "You probably don't even hear it when it happens".  It's a brilliant end to an incredible show.
