Dirty Pool

It seemed inevitable that Vito Spanafore would meet his demise at the hands of his brother-in-law, Phil Leotardo (pool stick and all). But did you know there were several alternate endings to last night's Sopranos and not even Joe Gannascoli knew how his character, "Gay Vito," would fare? Just one of many interesting tidbits in the current New York Observer. Upon learning just how gay Vito would be, other actors, including Tony Sirico (Paulie Walnuts) and James Gandolfini, expressed their concerns and even opposition to it. But, as Gannascoli reveals to the Observer's Sara Vilkomerson, it's one thing to complain about your character and something else entirely to complain to David Chase.

So am I the only person who caught the symbolism of Phil emerging from the closet to kill Vito, then clenching his fists as Vito is murdered? I mean, are we to believe that Phil is a closet case?

Vic, for those of us stationed overseas and without immediate access to HBO, could you please provide us with a spoiler alert in the future? (This holds especially true for anything to do with "24").
