TONY Soprano's fate is still a mystery after all.
Sopranos creator David Chase claims he was misquoted during an alleged bombshell interview in which he appeared to end the mystery of Tony Soprano's final moments.
In the Chase interview, Vox reporter Martha P. Nochimson wrote that she asked Chase point-blank if Tony Soprano died in the final episode of HBO's Sopranos.
His alleged reply: "No, he isn't." It sent off shockwaves from fans of the series which ended so mysteriously seven years ago. The interview claimed that Chase declined to elaborate further on what become of Soprano.
But Chase's statement late Wednesday, made through his representative Leslee Dart, put an end to the idea that Tony Soprano survived the diner where he was last seen.
"A journalist for Vox misconstrued what David Chase said in their interview. To simply quote David as saying, 'Tony Soprano is not dead,' is inaccurate," the statement said. "There is a much larger context for that statement and as such, it is not true.
"As David Chase has said numerous times on the record, 'Whether Tony Soprano is alive or dead is not the point,'" the statement continues. "To continue to search for this answer is fruitless. The final scene of The Sopranos raises a spiritual question that has no right or wrong answer."
