The Sopranos Creator David Chase Sheds Some Light on That Series Finale Ending

You remember the ending to The Sopranos . How could you forget? In case you DID forget, it had Tony Soprano, James Gandolfini, waiting for his family in a local diner. Tension built. "Don't Stop Believin'" played. Series creator
David Chase recently dissected that scene shot by shot and it will give
Sopranos fans quite a bit of insight into what the much-discussed ending. But no, there's no definitive answer about whether or not Tony died at the end. Chase told the Directors Guild of America magazine "He might have gotten shot three years ago in that situation. But he didn't. Whether this is the end here, or not, it's going to come at some point for the rest of us. Hopefully we're not going to get shot by some rival gang mob or anything like that. I'm not saying that [happened]. But obviously he stood more of a chance of getting shot by a rival gang mob than you or I do because he put himself in that situation. All I know is the end is coming for all of us," .
