David Chase on “Sopranos” finale: Deal with it

Chase It’s only fitting that “Sopranos” creator David Chase would give his first post-finale remarks to TV scribe Alan Sepinwall of the Newark Star-Ledger. In a nutshell, Chase (pictured left) says he’d never say never regarding a “Sopranos” movie, but don’t hold your breath. And as far as the clincher scene that has stirred such ire among some viewers, Chase offers: “I have no interest in explaining, defending, reinterpreting, or adding to what is there…No one was trying to be audacious, honest to God.” Chase adds: “We did what we thought we had to do. No one was trying to blow people’s minds or thinking, ‘Wow, this’ll (tick) them off.'”

Meanwhile, the numbers are in and Sunday’s finale drew about 11.9 million viewers. A little surprising that the closer didn’t generate a bigger bounce, given all the breathless anticipation leading up to it last week. But you can be sure that number will spike, if not double, after HBO runs the sprockets out of the finale during the next week or so.
