The Sopranos and The Many Saints of Newark Easter Eggs – SPOILERS!

While many of us predicted which Sopranos scenes would be relevant for The Many Saints of Newark, the movie had both predictable and less predictable Sopranos Easter Eggs. Check out some of those favorite Sopranos Easter Eggs below.

(By the way, I did not list these in order of importance, and this is a list that will be updated regularly as I rewatch the movie).

Throwing It All Out The Window

The Makings of a Varsity Athlete?

Next, did Tony have the makings of a varsity athlete? I’m not sure, but what I do know is that varsity letter Tony holds in Proshai, Livushka following his mother’s death is the one he wore on his jacket as a younger Tony Soprano waiting for Dickie Moltisanti (who never arrived). I imagine stumbling upon this item immediately following Livia’s death gave him all the feels and stirred up some old memories (or maybe not).
