Did Tony Soprano die? ‘Sopranos’ creator David Chase accidentally spoils the whole final scene…
“The Sopranos” creator David Chase made a pretty big mistake when he accidentally spoiled the infamously cryptic series finale during a leaked interview for “The Sopranos Sessions,” his book celebrating the Emmy-winning HBO mob drama.
At the end of 2007’s final episode, titled “Made in America,” Tony Soprano is eating out with his family amid a turf war between the New Jersey and New York Mafia families while an enemy hitman waits in their midst.
The screen then fades to black as Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’ ” blares on the soundtrack, leaving it ambiguous whether the show’s star gets killed, well until now!
Spoiler alert: In the roundtable discussion, co-author Alan Sepinwall asked Chase, “When you said there was an end point, you don’t mean Tony at Holsten’s [the diner], you just meant, ‘I think I have two more years’ worth of stories left in me.’ ”
Then Chase, 74, dropped the bombshell: “Yes, I think I had that death scene around two years before the end … But we didn’t do that.”
Noticing his epic leak, co-author Matt Zoller Seitz chimed in: “You realize, of course, that you just referred to that as a death scene.”
“F - - k you guys,” replied Chase upon realizing his blunder.
Indeed, in one fell swoop, the mob-show boss retrospectively spoiled a plot point that’s been debated for years by everyone from The Post to the “Sopranos” stars themselves.
