David Chase Accidentally Lets Slip What Really Happened To Tony Soprano
In fact, he might have cleared up one of the longest abiding mysteries in recent television history - what actually became of Tony Soprano before the curtain finally came down on the final ever episode.
So, if you're not aware - and don't complain about spoilers, it's been 13 years - in the finale of the show, viewers were left without the answer of whether the titular crime boss ever actually made it out of a family dinner alive.
He was in the middle of a feud with another organised crime organisation, and there was a potential hitman secreted away in the restaurant.
However, before we got the closure that we so badly craved, the screen faded out and 'Don't Stop Believing' by Journey played.
At the time, it caused chaos, and - although most people have now accepted the ending - it continues to divide opinion.
The interview featured Chase in conversation with Alan Sepinwall and Matt Zoller Seitz for The Sopranos Sessions, a book of interviews, essays and archival material about the HBO show.
As reported in The Independent, Sepinwall said: "When you said there was an end point, you don't mean Tony at Holsten's, you just meant, 'I think I have two more years' worth of stories left in me.'"
Chase said: "Yes, I think I had that death scene around two years before the end..."

He continued: "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."
Having seemingly failed to recognise his mistake in letting the spoiler slip, Zoller Seitz probed: "You realise, of course, that you just referred to that as a death scene?"
Chase, picking his mistake up, simply said: "F*** you guys."
Well, that pretty much clears things up. Or does it?
If you're a fan of The Sopranos, you only have to wait until next year for some brand-new and exciting developments in that world.
A prequel, entitled The Many Saints of Newark is due to debut in March 2021, and will feature a young Tony Soprano.
The Sopranos Sessions is available in hardback now. It is set to be released in paperback on 2 March 2021.
