La la la la la. I’m putting my fingers in my ears and squinting at the computer because I don’t want to know any Sopranos spoilers, but they’re hard to avoid when almost every TV critic in the universe has leaked word that someone gets whacked in the very first episode of Season 6 on Sunday night (EW’s Gillian Flynn reviews the series here, relatively spoiler-free).

Okay, I’m not above checking out the odds at gambling sites like Pinnacle Sports, which announced Wednesday in a press release that Uncle Junior (Dominic Chianese, pictured) is an 11/2 favorite to be the first casualty, followed by Christopher (Michael Imperioli) at 6/1. And I’m not above speculating — in order to really shock us, the whackee would have to be some innocent civilian, like restauranteur Artie Bucco (John Ventimiglia).

So I’ll open the floor: Who do you think will be the first to sleep with the fishes? Better yet, which character do you find annoying enough that you’d like to see them get whacked?
