Let the 'Sopranos' hype begin... NOW!

162045__tony_l_1Reason #47 Why Martha is Required Viewing at PopWatch HQ: Sometimes the celebrity guests let slip some truly valuable knowledge — and not just about something like making trivets out of pinecones.

When Martha asked today’s guest, Lorraine Bracco, if she could score an invite this March to the splashy premiere that HBO traditionally throws for The Sopranos each season, Bracco replied that there would be no premiere this time because something really big happens in the first episode, so big that the producers decided against any advance screenings. Then Bracco caught herself and returned to the usual Sopranos cast policy of omerta.

What do you suppose will happen in that first episode next March? (In case you’ve forgotten, Season 5 ended with Tony’s reconciliation with Johnny Sack interrupted by a federal bust that saw Johnny taken into custody and Tony fleeing into the woods. Read our recap of that episode here.) Will the season open with Meadow’s wedding? Or will someone get whacked? And if so, who? Speculate away, PopWatchers!

    It’ll be the death of another major character. The show is all about the decline and fall of this family, and Adriana just got whacked to end season 5. My guess is that Paulie Walnuts or Chris Multesante will be swimming with the fishes.

  • Jason

    The Sopranos. Yawn. One of the most over-rated shows on television.

  • Richard

    I think that Meadow’s soon-to-be husband is in trouble. I don’t feel like Tony’s guy, the apparently gay one, is going to forget what happened in that parking lot. And Meadow’s fiance (can’t remember his name, sorry.) definitely asked her to marry him out of fear. The poor kid. I don’t think he’s going to meet a nice end. As for everyone else? Carmella’s going to join “the family” in a bigger way, I’ll bet. Chris and Pauly’s problems with each other are only going to escalate. And Tony’s going to retreat from things a little bit, due to a new batch of panic attacks. Love this show. Can’t wait till March!

    i don’t care what it is. i couldn’t be more excited!

  • J

    If it’s really big, someone’s going to die. I’m betting it’s somebody in Tony’s immediate family. Odds on Meadow or Carmella.

  • blueper

    My guess (based on absolutely nothing) is that Tony will be arrested.

  • Trixie Diva

    Meadow will join the family biz. God knows, AJ’s too fragile.

  • Tony N.

    Tony B. comes back from the grave to get revenge on his cousin Tony S. Hey I’m Tony N., maybe I’m part of the “family” too.

  • Dave

    My guess: Tony gets shot (but doesn’t die).

  • EP Sato

    Gotta say one thing. I’m surprised there are so few comments on this show. Back in it’s heyday, Sopranos posts would get 50 comments. Perhaps the fan base has begun to shrink after such a long hiatus?

  • Matthew

    Who really cares anymore. The show has been off the air for so long that I do not remember what was going on. There are great shows on that have not left their fams waiting years for the next season. Lost, House, Prison Break, Desperate Housewives are very well written shows and have not stuck it to their fans.

  • Liz

    I can’t guess what it will be. But boy am I excited!!!

  • Brody

    My guess is Uncle Junior will die, causing a bump for Tony to become active boss, and competition between Chris and Silvio on becoming the under boss.

  • ossie

    I’m guessing Uncle Junior dies….It’s great when the Sopranos goes away then your forced to watch other things. Then when it comes back on you realize why it’s so great and it has no rivals since Deadwood’s 2nd season was a dud. Desperate Housewives 2nd season is pretty darn boring and i’m really tired of 20 law and orders and the 20 csi’s!!!

  • beav

    Richard, stop playing with yourself. The best show on TV, by a long way…
    As for possible first episode, how about this…. Vito is worried about his gay secret getting out, so he whacks Meadow’s fiance, -and- Meadow too because she sees it happen…
    That would be a massive punch to start series 6.
