I know I wasn’t the only person who thought their cable went out during the final moments of the series finale of ‘The Sopranos’ on Sunday. The ending was so abrupt that many viewers were left with a “What the F***?!” reaction. This was obviously the intention of ‘Sopranos’ creator, David Chase.

When the scene cut to black, we were left wondering whether life went on for the mob boss and his family or was he shot during an otherwise pleasant evening out with the wife and kids? The Hollywood Reporter says Chase wanted to leave the ending for the fans to interpret for themselves.

While I’m of the mindset that the cut-to-black implied that Tony was indeed killed, many disagree and are hoping a movie will be made to better conclude the hit HBO drama. Unfortunately for them, it’s unlikely that this will happen. Chase told Jersey’s The Star-Ledger, "I don't think about (a movie) much. I never say never. An idea could pop into my head where I would go, 'Wow, that would make a great movie,' but I doubt it.” He added, "I'm not being coy. If something appeared that really made a good 'Sopranos' movie and you could invest in it and everybody else wanted to do it, I would do it. But I think we've kind of said it and done it."

So that about sums it up. Since Chase doesn’t seem to want to give viewers any clues as to what he thinks happened after the scene went black, viewers will have to decide for themselves whether or not Tony Soprano survived the dinner out with the family.

What do you think happened to Tony at the end of the finale?
