The Mystery: What happened to Tony Soprano? The Sleuths: Televisionwithoutpity, BobHarris.com, anybody who thought their television broke. The Facts: Tony meets his family at a diner. A man in a Members Only jacket goes to the restroom. The front door opens, Tony looks up and "The Sopranos" ends its six-year run. The Theories: He died, he didnt die, the family was in witness protection, the onion rings were surrogate communion wafers, everybody in that restaurant had some reason for wanting to kill Tony (that last one was definitively proved to be untrue). Bob Harriss 5,000-word opus offered up the most theories in one place. Chance of Being Solved: David Chase has vowed never to explain, so well never know for sure.
