'The Sopranos' Creator Accidentally Reveals What Happened to Tony Soprano in That Blackout Moment

The series finale of the iconic HBO series The Sopranos ended abruptly with the screen going to black while Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini) sat in a diner with his family.

Series creator David Chase has always been tight-lipped about what actually happened, but in the 2019 book “The Soprano Sessions,” he did say that the scene was meant to imply Tony “could have been whacked in the diner.”

Now, a leaked interview that David did with the book’s co-authors seemingly reveals what actually happened to Tony… and it was all accidentally revealed.

“When you said there was an end point, you don’t mean Tony at Holsten’s [diner], you just meant, ‘I think I have two more years’ worth of stories left in me,’” co-author Alan Sepinwall asked David, according to The Independent.

“Yes, I think I had that death scene around two years before the end,” David replied. “Tony was going to get called to a meeting with Johnny Sack in Manhattan, and he was going to go back through the Lincoln Tunnel for this meeting, and it was going to go black there and you never saw him again as he was heading back, the theory being that something bad happens to him at the meeting. But we didn’t do that.”

Co-author Matt Zoller Seitz then said, “You realize, of course, that you just referred to that as a death scene.”

David reportedly then took a long pause before saying, “F–k you guys.”

So there you have it! Tony Soprano was seemingly killed off in that final scene.
