Stop asking if Tony Soprano lived or died!: David Chase has always held off on giving a definitive answer

Stop asking if Tony Soprano lived or died!: David Chase has always held off on giving a definitive answer
That’s why Matt Zoller Seitz wasn’t buying the Vox article earlier today claiming that “The Sopranos” creator did indeed give a definitive answer: "The point is, since 2007 Chase has never straightforwardly explained precisely what he meant to do with the end of 'The Sopranos,' despite having been asked about it in interviews and public appearances," says Seitz. "There have been moments where he seemed to be on the verge of spelling it out for us. He always caught himself and pulled back. But that never stopped people from seizing on certain words or phrases in order to crow, 'See, I toldja! Tony died! David Chase said so!’"

David Chase says his comment on Tony Soprano’s fate was 'misconstrued'

David Chase says his comment on Tony Soprano’s fate was “misconstrued”
“The Sopranos” creator released a statement via his publicist to Vulture responding to his supposed revelation to Vox: "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. 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.' 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.’"
