Well, we’ve finally done it. Humanity and its unrelenting thirst to end ambiguity as we know it has finally worn poor David Chase, the creator of The Sopranos, down on what exactly did or didn’t happen to Tony Soprano on the last episode of the show. Given that the episode aired seven years ago, I was sure Chase had made it through the worst of it and would take the secret to his grave, but I guess not.
Before we go any further, because I’m not going to spoil what happened for you above the jump, I’d like to say that I loved the ending of the show. At first I was angry, but a few days later I began to really appreciate the way Chase allowed us into the lives of these characters for eight or so years and then simply closed the hatch when it came to the audience’s ability to access them. I totally get why some people didn’t like it, but I found it intriguing. Hit the jump to find out what happened to Tony Soprano. [Update: David Chase's publicist has clarified his comments. More on this below.]
