So, what did Tony Soprano make of the black-out ending?

James Gandolfini tells the New York Daily News he has "no idea" what the show's cut-to-blank screen ending was supposed to mean. He says that's a question for "Sopranos" creator David Chase.

But Gandolfini adds that "it was a great ending. You decide."

The final episode of the mob drama ended as Tony and his family ate in a diner with several suspicious-looking characters lurking about.

Steven Van Zandt, who played Silvio on the series, also praised the open-ended conclusion. He says a conventional ending would have been "a fraud" because "life doesn't have tidy little endings."
