It’s been 10 years since the series finale of The Sopranos, which is still one of the most controversial endings in TV history. So, in honor of this frustrating anniversary, we’ve compiled a list of the top 5 series finales that made us all go “WTF?”
Dexter ended with him burying his sister at sea. But, really, we were all Dexter’s final victim, subjected to that horrible ending. The only bright spot was it left us with some hilarious lumberjack memes.
#4: How I Met Your Mother
The depressing Dexter finale shows that not everyone can have their happy ending, except for maybe Ted Mosby and Robin Scherbatsky. The final How I Met Your Mother breakup was the one between us and our beloved series. Unfortunately, their mother was no longer alive, and this epic love story ended with Ted realizing his true love was always Robin. Which is why we now like to think of it as How I Met Your Step-Mother.
The Seinfeld finale was a trip down memory lane as 76.3 million people watched the foursome on trial for not being “Good Samaritans” and ending up in jail. Leading up to the air date, the episode was a closely guarded secret, and maybe it should’ve remained a lost secret forever.
Speaking of lost, the finale of Lost crashed and left us all feeling deserted. We invested years into the story, but were left confused, angry and, ultimately, lost with lots of questions about an uninspired conclusion.
#1: The Sopranos
Which brings us to the most frustrating finale of all — The Sopranos. The last few minutes, and fate of Tony Soprano, ended with an abrupt cut to black that made 11.9 million viewers believe their cable boxes had betrayed them! But that wasn’t the case, and we were left wondering: Is he dead or alive? Series creator David Chase, still, has not confirmed that answer. And we’re all still just a little bit angry about, literally, being left in the dark.
