'The Sopranos' David Chase: Tony Didn't Die in Final Cut-to-Black Scene?

By    |   Thursday, 28 Aug 2014 07:25 AM

"The Sopranos" creator David Chase, known for developing epic cliffhangers, kept one going this week, telling the media that a quote from him about Tony Soprano's ultimate fate was "misconstrued."

On Wednesday, Vox.com published a Chase interview by Martha Nochimson, which initially seemed the answer the age-old question that "Sopranos" fans everywhere have been debating endlessly since the HBO series wrapped seven years ago: Did Tony Soprano die in that final cut-to-black scene?

"We were in a tiny coffee shop, when, in the middle of a low-key chat about a writing problem I was having, I popped the question," Nochimson writes. "Chase startled me by turning toward me and saying with sudden, explosive anger, 'Why are we talking about this?' I answered, 'I'm just curious.' And then, for whatever reason, he told me. He shook his head 'no.' And he said simply, 'No he isn't.' That was all."

Chase quickly backtracked on his supposed admission, though, with a statement from his representative.

"A journalist for Vox misconstrued what David Chase said in their interview," the statement, obtained by Variety, read. "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."

Chase seems content with keeping "The Sopranos" mystery going, at least for now, Entertainment Weekly's Teresa Jue wrote.

"As David Chase has said numerous times on the record, 'Whether Tony Soprano is alive or dead is not the point. To continue to search for this answer is fruitless,'" Jue wrote. "Chase is basically saying to move along, there's nothing to see here, and to stop trying to figure out his ending. Which we all had pretty much done — until he gave an interview where he seemingly talked about his ending."
