Since 2007, fans of The Sopranos have debated the final scene of the HBO series’s final episode, “Made in America.” Some of us have come to terms with the show’s “five-year cut to black,” and have even figured out what creator David Chase was really trying to convey [SPOILER]: Like, Tony Soprano gets whacked by the guy in the Members Only jacket, right? Now that David Chase has reemerged to do press for his forthcoming film Not Fade Away, all he has to do is blink once for “yes” and twice for “no” and provide closure to his tortured viewers.
Oh, if things were only so simple. In an interview with the Associated Press, Chase once again backed off from offering a definitive ruling on Tony’s fate. He also reasserted his belief that the final scene is great, though he admitted to thinking that “Made in America” “might have been kind of a dud” before rewatching it two years and confirming that, yes, he is a brilliant guy.
