The end to The Sopranos saga is already written, but the actors are completely in the dark about the eagerly anticipated finale. Creator David Chase - promoting the Sopranos PlayStation 2 game, Road to Respect, due out in November - says the final eight scripts are finished but only the writers know what happens. The last season premieres early next year, but Chase would only say that the hit HBO series ends as it began: focusing on the core characters. While a spin-off of the series is doubtful but not entirely out of the question, what's for sure is that saying goodbye to the gang is going to be harder than getting out of the Pine Barrens. "We'll have a wrap party and people will drink a lot," he says. "It'll be pretty emotional."
