Multi-awarded TV show ‘The Sopranos’ aired its last episode in June 2007 but the question that left many thinking was on whether mob boss Tony Soprano (played by the late James Gandolfini) died or not. In that last scene, Tony Soprano was set to order their dinner from a diner together with his wife Carmela (played by Edie Falco) and Anthony Jr. (Robert Iler) while waiting for his eldest daughter Meadow (Jamie-Lynn Sigler).
The last scene was kind of twisting, the point at which many were targeting Tony Soprano after hitting his crew one by one. The final episode with a blank screen, leaving many thinking on what actually happened and if it was Tony Soprano’s last stand.
Many believed that it was the end of Tony Soprano, some say it was part of a dream while others felt it was Chase’ way of leaving people think and/or perhaps create their own ending. Until today, the actual state of Tony Soprano was up in the air but creator David Chase finally answers the question many of the show followers had been long waiting for.
From the Vox, “He shook his head ‘no.’ And he said simply, ‘No he isn’t.’” What does this all mean then? Is this Chase’ way of leaving doors open for a possible reboot of the multi-awarded show? Or was it simply his way of playing with our minds as far as the ending of the TV show is concerned?
The discussion from forums and followers is something that had been unresolved until this day and surely more questions will follow now that that uncanny final scene has been somehow answered by the creator himself.
Talking about reviving the series (which in all honesty deserves it), you have to wonder who would play or succeed the character of Tony Soprano. James Gandolfini, who fit in marvelously to the role, died last year (June 19, 2013).
Either that or a new cast of characters could come out to reprise the roles of the modern day mafia TV show. Well, you also have to consider the fact that all this revelations or that unusual ending could be just that – nothing and that it is simply Chase’ style as far as production is concerned. The real score? Your guess is as good as ours!
