David Chase answered one of life’s most enduring questions Tuesday night. One that has baffled the greatest minds of the last decade.

Chase, the creator and voice of “The Sopranos,” spoke to a crowd of a few hundred gathered at the Writers’ Guild to discuss all things “Sopranos.” The event was an homage to Chase, this year’s recipient of the Paddy Chayefsky Laurel Award for Television.
