Will Tony die on the series finale of The Sopranos?

The Sopranos ends tonight, and the big question is: will Tony live, or will Tony die? And if he dies, will that be the closure it needs, or will we have just lost one of the greatest characters in television history?

Personally, the show can find closure without killing Tony. Just like any movie can end with the bad guy dying and the protagonist living, The Sopranos can end with Phil getting whacked and Tony continuing on with his life as is. In fact, I believe this is the way it has to go: the show has always been about the hypocrisy of its characters, of human beings who live rather immoral lives. Killing Tony would be almost too cliche, and not true to the nature of the show.

Okay, I don't know what I'm saying, but I would love to see Tony lives. If Phil gets whacked and Tony lives, then I'll be just fine with that. Of course, in reality, the odds are that Tony dies. We'll just have to wait and see...
