June marks ten years since The Sopranos aired its final episode, culminating in a finale capped by one of the most enigmatic moments in television history. In celebration, David Chase and more have dissected the seminal HBO series' most devastating death scene to have featured across all six seasons. The character's death knell was marked when she found herself under investigation by the FBI during season four. We always knew at some point, she was probably going to pay for that. That tragic moment arrived in season five episode 12, 'Long Term Parking,' and - while perhaps inevitable - it was one of the most heartbreaking moments in The Sopranos ' six year history aided by the episode's manipulation into making the audience believe Adriana has escaped her fate: Tony calls her to tell her Christopher's attempted suicided and orders her to pack a bag.

Drea de Matteo is the proud mother of two children, son Waylon and daughter Alabama. That same night she took the stage for a mini-reunion with some of her co-stars from The Sopranos. Alabama Gypsy Rose is her daughter and is years-old. Waylon Albert is her son and is aged eight. The child sweetly brought her doll to the event.
One of the few people focusing on peaceful times during this intense final season of Sons of Anarchy is Wendy Drea de Matteo , Jax's drug-addicted ex-wife who has cleaned herself up and dedicated herself to keeping her son, Abel, and Jax's other son, Thomas, safe and cared for among all the SAMCRO turmoil. Wendy spent the early days of SoA causing nothing but trouble — and irritation for control-freak mama Gemma — but after several rounds of rehab and therapy, she's returned with "a toolbox of ways to cope," de Matteo says. The Sopranos , Desperate Housewives, and Joey alum talked to Yahoo TV about Wendy's relationship with Jax Charlie Hunnam — their history and their future — her bond with Jimmy Smits's Nero, how Abel may really turn out to be a junior Jax, and her hopes for actually making it to the SoA finale — an opportunity Adriana of The Sopranos , as we all remember sadly, was not afforded.
