How The Many Saints of Newark Almost Brought Back Carmela Soprano

“I’m already starting to think it wasn’t a good idea to say so much. I’m usually candid and brutally honest,” says the director.

Taylor did add that it was nice to see Falco back in her iconic role – if only for a moment.

“Unfortunately, Edie doesn’t show up, but it was a good excuse to bring her in,” he says. “We took her through hair, makeup and wardrobe. For a moment she became Carmela again. (Losing the scene) is only part of the relentless process of finding the film along the way.”

Now only one question remains: what exactly was that scene? Is the missing person? Many Saints of Newark Edie Falco intro destined to be the latest in a long line of Sopranos mysteries like “what happened to the Russian?”, “did Tony die?” and “Why is Paulie smiling like that?” Could be!

We probably won’t know until the Blu-Ray release and we can check the deleted scenes. Until then, we can only speculate. It’s safe to assume the missing Carmela Soprano scene wasn’t later on The Sopranos‘ closing piece. Because while Taylor is comfortable asserting his theory that Tony Soprano was murdered, series creator David Chase is adamant about leaving that a mystery. Every scene with Carmela wouldn’t blend into a hospital room with her mourning her lost husband.

It’s possible that Carmela Soprano’s intro had something to do with her relationship with the Moltisantis. Dickie Moltisanti (Alessandro Nivola) has been described as the central character of The Many Saints of Newark. Dickie was Carmela’s cousin, so a moment with the two could have formed a useful connective tissue between the TV show and the movie.
