Brilliant interpretation of Sopranos ending
“I couldn’t let it just hang,” Bowen told police in a post-arrest confession released to the media. “Eight years of my life, and a fucking artsy cut to black? It was eating me up inside.”
In his statement, Bowen also used the word “betrayal” to describe the series’s resolution, which he was convinced set up a climactic death for the sociopathic mafia don. The realization that Soprano’s brutal life of constant fear and anxiety would have no real end slowly drove the obsessed Bowen over the edge.
“I had to tie up the loose ends, I just had to,” Bowen said. “I’m positive this is exactly how [creator and executive producer] David Chase wanted fans to interpret the ending.”
