The internet was abuzz Wednesday (Aug. 27) when Vox published an interview with “Sopranos” creator David Chase in which he seemingly said that Tony Soprano did, in fact, survive the fade-to-black finale that left millions of viewers wondering about the mobster’s fate.
However, Chase would like you all to know that it’s not that simple.
Chase’s representative Leslee Dart has released a statement, saying, “A journalist for Vox miscontrued 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.
“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. The final scene of ‘The Sopranos’ raises a spiritual question that has no right or wrong answer.”
Apparently, Schrodinger’s Capo is a conundrum that will haunt TV viewers for years to come.
What do you think, “Sopranos” fans? Is Tony alive or dead? Does it even matter to you?
