Of course, this is not uncommon because people always They discuss ambiguous endings. Some viewers like such endings and others feel that they have wasted their time watching the series in vain. A series that could not even have a good ending. Of course, the creator of the series, David Chiz, made it clear in 2007, when the series ended, that he did not care what the second group said.

Warning: In this article, there is a risk of leaking the story of the" Sopranos "series
but please be reasonable. In the final episode scenario, two things could have happened. Either Tony is killed or he is arrested by the police (in fact, if we think about it, there is no other option. Is not it?). But the question is, if either of these things happened, would anyone still be talking about it now, thirteen years after the series? Most likely not. Of course, maybe there were still people talking about it because the "Sopranos" series was really unique. Just as many people still talk about "Bad Breaking", so even if the end of "The Sopranos" was quite clear, many people might still remember it.
If the series did not have an ambiguous ending, it is likely that people would not have discussed it, and perhaps even today no article would have been written about it because there was no ambiguous point to address at all. But now, there is a lot of speculation in this regard, and in addition, there is a lot of evidence from David Cheese and other writers in the series that is not without merit. So, let's get started.
How did the soprano series end?
The sixth and final season of" The Sopranos "was an incredibly interesting season. In the first half of the sixth season, we see Tony in a coma while he has become a wandering soul. He eventually wakes up and changes slightly after a near-death experience. However, these behaviors did not last long, because in the second part of this season, we saw that the New York crew is angry about the asbestos disposal, and this causes them to fall in love with Tony's crew, although Tony ends this belief. p>
Or at least we think so, but suddenly the last part of the series arrives. Tony goes to a diner and waits for his family. While waiting for his family, he whispers the song Never Lose Your Belief. Ordinary people enter the restaurant and Tony is always terrified, because this is usually the life of a self-made man and he should always be worried about things that might happen. Strangers enter the courtyard one after another through the front door of the restaurant. His wife, Carmella, also enters the restaurant, followed by a suspicious man and then his son, AJ. (AJ asks his father to buy him some fried onion rings). The suspect sits in a chair next to the counter and keeps looking back, and Tony's daughter, Mido, tries to park her car. Go to the bathroom, and if you've ever seen The Godfather, you know that's not a good sign at all. Others enter the restaurant and while looking at the delicious cake, they happily rub their hands together and get ready to eat the cake. Meanwhile, Mido is still trying to park his car. Tony's son's favorite onion rings finally arrive, Mido, who is hurrying down the street, is about to hit a car, the doorbell rings, and when Steve Perry never stops trying, the screen suddenly turns black, and so on. The story of this series ends.
How did the soprano fans react to the final episode of the series?
One of the fans of this series said in this regard, I remember watching the last episode with my friends and I will never forget that my friend, Nick, after the TV screen went black from the chair He got up to check his TV because we were all grumbling. He thought his TV cable was cut off And apparently he was not the only one who thought so. In those years, it was still not enough for people to search the internet and see what had happened, so many audiences thought that something had happened to their television. In fact, before the show's final credits were shown, the TV screen went black for a full 11 seconds, so many viewers could not believe that the series ended that way.
But when the finale titled The show began, and discussions that lasted 13 years began. Many said Tony had been killed and others did not believe it had happened. Of course, in the eyes of many audiences, he was definitely killed, otherwise why should the TV screen be turned black? However, I do not know if it is right to say this or if I should allow the audience to remain in doubt. Many spectators decided to watch the final scene over and over again, but to be able to answer the questions that came to their minds. Many of them thought that all the scenes in the final sequence were interconnected, so by looking at them again, one can see what happened. It's happening, we're arguing, just like what happened at the end of 'The Beginning,' and the interesting thing is that none of us really know if we're wrong or not. In fact, everyone has their own opinion on this and thinks that he is right.
So did Tony Soprano really die?
The short answer I can give you is no. Only the TV screen went black, and this is the issue we want to address next, but the long answer is much more complicated than you think. So in this regard, we want to refer to the issue raised by the creator of the series, David Chiz:
I left the end of the film to the people to decide for themselves. We were going to film another sequence showing Tony's death. Of course, this goes back a long time before the final episode of the series was made. In fact, we were supposed to film the scene of Tony's death before. In this sequence, Tony was to return to the Lincoln Tunnel to meet with Phil Leotardo and be killed there. Of course, I did not think you were going to see the details of his death, but you could tell he was definitely dead. Of course, this could mean that Tony did not really die at the end of the series because the scene planned to show Tony's death was never filmed. Surely you're saying to yourself now, does that mean Tony never died, right? No. It just means that David preferred not to show you that he was killed. Well, Terence Winter, author of The Sopranos and creator of the Bordeaux Empire, said in an interview:
I think when you became known in the community as Tony Soprano, you even went out to eat ice cream with Your family can also be full of anxiety. He had a life full of murder, beatings and betrayal, so anyone who entered the restaurant that day could be the one who wanted to kill Tony. In fact, a person like Tony Soprano spends his whole life in fear and anxiety, and if one day he can survive, the next day may be the day of the end of his life. As you have probably heard about the lives of gangsters, there are only two ways for them to get out of this miserable situation: one is to go to prison and the other is to die. So it may not have happened that night, but there is no guarantee that it will never happen. So you as a viewer need to know that he will eventually die. Whether that night or the other night.
In fact, as the author of this story, I want to say that it does not matter what happened to Tony that night, because in the end he will either be killed or imprisoned. Went. So the only problem is when this happens. It may have happened that night or another day. But it will happen sooner or later.
The end of the series depends on the viewers' interpretation
I personally prefer to think that Tony did not die that night. Not because I did not want him to die or because I did not think he deserved to die. But because I think if Tony is not dead, the story of the series will have a better ending. Because you just have to think about which of these is worse? Will you be shot in the head and die, or will you have to live the rest of your life in fear that someone out there will try to destroy you or even your whole family? If Tony is not dead that day, he will definitely have to live with this fear for the rest of his life.
So I personally love this vague ending. When I saw the movie "Irish Man", I immediately went to the series I thought of The Sopranos, because one of the great sequences in that movie is the sequence in which the character played by Robert De Niro, named Frank Sheeran, goes to a restaurant and draws a crazy atmosphere right in front of his family. This sequence was really great, but it may have only affected the audience for a few seconds, while I've been thinking about the end of The Sopranos for years. In fact, it can be said that the power of this sequence is beyond description.
But what do you think? Do you think Tony died that night? Or do you think it is better for us to remain in doubt? How does it feel when you compare the end of "The Sopranos" with other popular series like "Dexter" or "Bad Breaking"? I like vague endings because you can get any result you want from a movie or series, but I know a lot of people can't stand it.
