I get to host afternoons each weekday on The BONE as “Zakk”. It’s been my nickname for years and its much more simple to say and easier to pronounce than my birth name, Dominic Joseph Zaccagnini.

It’s not a requirement to be Italian to have enjoyed the HBO televised series The Sopranos. Millions watched throughout it’s 86 episode run that began on January 10, 1999, and concluded with controversy and drama on June 10, 2007. There is even a prequel film planned which would detail the background stories of the main characters. It was originally scheduled for a September release but is moved back to next year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

But now 13 years after its finale we have a clue… or maybe a leak… as to what happened to the show’s main character Tony Soprano in the final scene. In an interview for the Soprano Sessions the creator of the show,. David Chase, was asked during the round table discussion, “When you said there was an end point, you don’t mean Tony at Holsten’s [the diner], you just meant, ‘I think I have two more years’ worth of stories left in me.’

David Chase replied, “Yes, I think I had that death scene around two years before the end … But we didn’t do that.”

The moderator immediately called him upon it and Chase realizing his admission responded, “F–k you guys!”
