David Chase finally clears up the end of 'The Sopranos'

David Chase stopped by the critics' press tour Saturday night to pick up a couple of awards, and he Television_critics_awards_c_2 offered three helpful hints for understanding that ending of The Sopranos. Here they are, in order:

"Here's another clue for you all -- the Walrus was Pauly."

To critic Alan Sepinwall of the Newark Star-Ledger: "You're from New Jersey, right? Would you tell everybody that is is possible -- in fact, very likely -- to be sitting in a restaurant in New Jersey and everything just stops?'

And finally:

"Somebody said it would be a good idea if we said something about the ending. I really wasn't going to go into it. But I'll just say this ... When I was going to Stanford University graduate film school, 23 years old, I went and saw Planet of the Apes with my wife. When the movie was over I said, 'Wow, so they had a Statue of Liberty, too.' So that's what you're up against."
