But for fans of the series who have long been haunted by that cliffhanger series finale where we're left to wonder whether Tony Soprano has been shot dead inside a diner, it looks like we might finally be getting some answers.
The show's creator, David Chase, just revealed what he intended for Tony (played by James Gandolfini) after the screen went black. In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Chase talked about the ending he originally envisioned, saying, “The scene I had in my mind was not that scene. Nor did I think of cutting to black. 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.”
