    For the past seven years, the final scene of The Sopranos has had viewers and fans scratching their heads over what the heck happened. It was perhaps the most divisive series finale of all time, leading legions of people to think their televisions went out and spawning a plethora of close readings of Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’.”

    Did the guy in the ‘Members Only’ jacket whack him? Were the onion rings a crispy and delicious source of symbolism about the circle of life for Tony? What was up with Meadow’s parallel parking? Questions about that scene never ceased, and Chase’s elusiveness over Tony’s fate only furthered speculation. In-depth fan sites were spawned just over the ending alone. Even Michael Imperioli, who played Christopher Moltisanti in the show (and was tragically whacked episodes before the finale) thought Tony died.

    Perhaps sick of answering questions about an event that happened seven years ago, Sopranos creator David Chase finally let a sliver of info out on Tony Soprano’s whereabouts at end of the HBO series. In an article on Vox, writer Martha P. Nochimson questions Chase on whether Tony dies in the finale. Chase’s simple reply: “‘He shook his head ‘no.’ And he said simply, ‘No he isn’t.'”

    Sorry, Imperioli and the rest of the Tony-was-whacked believers—your theory’s debunked. Chase’s nonchalance notwithstanding, Sopranos fans can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that Tony’s enjoying some onion rings somewhere, post-blacked-out screen.

    In my mind, it ends with a shooter emptying his entire clip into Meadow.

    You know, a happy ending.

    I'm just going to continue interrupting that he is dead, it is the only thing that makes sense, fuck Chase, if he is alive then the ending is even more retarded.

    I think it makes more sense that he ISNT dead.
    What I interpreted the finale as was the dread and fear tony will always feel for himself and his family.
    He was nervously waiting for a killer just like we were.
    It really was a terrific final ep

    I never watched the show. But I have seen that restaurant scene.
    I never put much thought into any of it. No one I know does.

    I loved the Sopranos ending. I always assumed he was killed.

    Don't Stop... Fade to Black.

    I couldn't stand the worthless kid and the gold digging wife plotlines. The rest was top notch.

    Chase couldn't think of an ending....that's all it is. He went for an "artistic" approach without a definitive ending and people hated it. He got pissed about it and just started saying HE'S DEAD! Few years later, a few failed projects, a dead Gandolfini he's changed his mind....Tony lives. Bullshit. What an insufferable shit. Great show though, probably my faaavvvvorite.

    They left out the part when he pointed to his heart and said "he still lives here "

    Yeah, how the fuck does that ending sequence make any sense if Tony didn't die?

    One of the best shows of all time. Very unsatisfying and retarded ending.
