Sopranos Creator Finally Reveals What Happened to Tony Soprano at the End of the Show
The TV show The Sopranos was one of the most popular shows while it was on the air.
Even today, it is still watched my man people as you can find it on streaming platforms like HBO Max.
I don’t know how everyone feels about the show or that type of genre specifically, but I’ve always been a fan of anything that is mafia-related. Part of this comes from me loving old movies. I don’t mean movies from like the 80s or 90s, I mean movies from the 30s, 40s, and 50s, even earlier to be honest. One of my favorite old movies was actually made in 1927.
But one actor that I always enjoyed watching is Edward G. Robinson. You may not know the name, but you probably know his face. He has that old-time gangster look and often played in mafia movies of that time.
But if you watched The Sopranos then you’re probably like many other people who wondered what exactly happened at the end of the series. Did Tony Soprano die or not? That’s the big question.
The reason why there is so much stir up over this question is because at the end of the show, everything just cuts to black and that’s how the show ends.
There is no drama going on or anything. He’s just sitting at a table at a restaurant with his family and looks up and then the show ends.
For years, the creator of the show has said that all of the clues are there, but he would never directly answer whether or not Tony Soprano died…until now.
According to Looper,
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, David Chase was as serious as an organized hit when it came to the matter of Tony Soprano’s fate in the series finale. After being reminded of a 2007 interview in which he said, “Well, I had that death scene in mind for years before,” confirming what many fans had always feared, the man behind “The Sopranos” revealed he had very different plans for Tony, but still with the same ending.
Chase recalled that “the scene I had in my mind was not that scene. Nor did I think of cutting to black.” He went on to explain, “I had a scene in which Tony comes back from a meeting in New York in his car. At the beginning of every show, he came from New York into New Jersey, and the last scene could be him coming from New Jersey back into New York for a meeting at which he was going to be killed.”
“They wanted to know that Tony was killed. They wanted to see him go face-down in linguini, you know? And I just thought, ‘God, you watched this guy for seven years and I know he’s a criminal. But don’t tell me you don’t love him in some way, don’t tell me you’re not on his side in some way. And now you want to see him killed? You want justice done? You’re a criminal after watching this sh*t for seven years’. That bothered me, yeah.”
