Wherein we imagine what Tony Soprano might have thought about his famous… his infamous “death scene” and the final scene of The Sopranos’ series finale…
What do I think about whether I died or not at the end of The Sopranos? Well, let me tell you, it’s a bunch of [REDACTED] if you ask me. David Chase thinks he’s so smart, leaving the ending all ambiguous and leaving the fans hanging like that. But let me tell you, the fans deserve better than that.
But to answer the question, did I die? Hell if I know. I mean, I was sitting there in that diner with my family, eating onion rings, and then the screen goes black. And that’s it. No sound, no nothing. Just blackness.
Some people think that means I got whacked, but I don’t buy it. I mean, why would someone want to kill me? I’m a lovable guy, with a great sense of humor, and a heart of gold. Sure, I may have been involved in some shady business dealings, but that’s just the life I lead. I mean, you can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs, am I right?
And besides, why would David Chase want to kill off his main character? That’s like killing the golden goose. I mean, I am The Sopranos. Without me, the show would be nothing. So I think David Chase was just trying to mess with people’s heads, and it worked.
But let me tell you, if I did die, it’s not so bad. I mean, I’ve had a good run. I’ve made a lot of money, had a lot of laughs, and had some great times with my family. And if I am dead, at least I won’t have to deal with all the drama and stress of the life I lead anymore.
So in conclusion, did I die or not at the end of The Sopranos? Who knows. And who cares? The important thing is that I had a great life, and I made a lot of people happy. And if David Chase wants to mess with people’s heads, that’s his business. But as for me, I’m just going to keep on living, whether I’m dead or alive.
And David Chase, let me tell you something about that guy. He thinks he’s some kind of genius, with his fancy writing and his ambiguous endings. Sure, David Chase came up with the idea for the show, but who brought it to life? Who made Tony Soprano a household name? Me. That’s who.
And don’t get me started on the way he wrote my character. Yeah, I know I’m a complicated guy, with a lot of flaws and issues. But did he have to make me look like such a jerk all the time? I mean, come on. I’m not all bad. I’ve got a heart, you know.
And what’s with all the therapy scenes? Did he have to make me look so weak? I mean, I’m a tough guy. I’m the boss of the New Jersey mob. I don’t need some shrink to tell me how to live my life.
But you know what? Despite all that, I have to give David Chase credit. He created a great show, and he did a good job of keeping people guessing. And even though he made me look like a jerk sometimes, I have to admit that he knew how to write good drama.
Fade to black.
