In an interview with Deadline, David Chase spoke about the finale. He revealed that a fake ending to the series was shot to “throw everyone off.” People wanted to know how Tony Soprano’s story would end on the small screen before the finale aired.
Chase said that he was happy “pretty much” with the finale and how it played out mostly, but he did not expect the series to be as popular as it was.
He said the following:
“I am yes. I expected it to cause… I mean, it’s hard to go back to those days but the show was like, I don’t know, sometimes I can’t believe it ever happened — the show was like a moonshot, a dreadnought. It was incredible and everything about it was analyzed and talked about. Anybody who wrote articles about it, any subject, it was, ‘Oh Tony Soprano would say…,’ or ‘This was a Sopranoesque moment in life.’ So I knew there would be some conversation about it, but I never knew it would be like that.”
