It shouldn't matter whether Tony Soprano lived or died after the controversial 2007 finale of The Sopranos.
That's the latest from David Chase, the creator of the classic HBO drama, who was compelled to issue a statement after Vox quoted him as saying the New Jersey mobster lived after the screen went black in the series ender.
On Wednesday, Vox wrote a long tone poem about the infamous finale and finished it off with an eye-opening quote from Chase about whether Tony, played by the late James Gandolfini, was actually dead.
