The Fate of Tony Soprano: REVEALED!!!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

One of the biggest mysteries in television history has apparently been solved.

How does 2 Broke Girls remain on the air? No. That question may never be answered.

But Martha P. Nochimson published a lengthy story today on Vox in which she profiles The Sopranos creator David Chase, who has remained mum about Tony Soprano's fate ever since his show's controversial finale.

Nochimson says she asked Chase point blank whether Tony is dead (i.e. killed in that infamous diner scene), a question that initially invoked anger from the creator, but eventually led to the following response:

No, he isn't.

That's all Chase had to say on the subject, as he likely now hopes fans will stop asking him about the ending.

True Blood
Sookie helped Bill kill himself because he didn't think she could live a normal life with him around. So much for true love. And for the notion of True Blood as a wild and crazy series who definied "normal" in its own eccentric ways.

What do you think of Chase's reply? Or the fact that Tony Soprano made it out of the diner alive? Does this change your view on the Sopranos finale or on the series in general?

UPDATE:  A rep for Chase has now released the following statement:

“A journalist for Vox misconstrued what David Chase said in their interview. To simply quote David as saying, ‘Tony Soprano is not dead,’ is inaccurate. There is a much larger context for that statement and as such, it is not true."

God damn! i miss the show... i don't think the point of the finale was whether he died or not : focus on the last dinner scene : when someone chooses to live the life tony soprano lived, it doesn't matter if you survive or not you will always be under a constant threat you'll never be safe neither your family and that how the show blow my freaking mind to the very last line! All hail the sopranos *_*

It would have been good if, say, James Gandolfini was still alive and it made a difference whether Tony were still alive, but he's not and it doesn't so it's of no matter whatsoever.

What a load of click bait crap. Chase did a nice job of closing the Sopranos. This interview adds nothing to it.

The Sopranos Quotes

(to Junior) Remember the story you told me about the father bull talking to the son. They're up on this hill and looking down on a bunch of cows. And the son goes to the father, "Dad, why don't we run down there and fuck one of these cows?" Now do you remember what the father said? Father says, "Son, why don't we walk down there and fuck them all?"

Junior: A Chinaman goes to see the eye doctor. After the exam the doctor said, "I know why you're having trouble." The Chinaman says, "why?" Doctor said, "you have a cataract." Chinaman says, "no, I have a Rincoln Continental." (short pause) You don't get it?
Bobby: I get it. He drives a Lincoln Continental. What?
