Todd is my favorite character.

This was a fantastic episode. I loved every second of it. Poor Jesse, though. Even though his escape would have been a bit unrealistic, I was still rooting for him to make it out.

Edited to add: boy I hope he takes out Elliot and Gretchen.

So, Jesse's dick is cursed, right? Just like Sam Winchester's? I'm 100% certain that Brock won't die (because of hope roll eyes), but I kind of wish he would, after this. Just kill everyone good and decent in Jesse's life, already, get it over with!

My only guess for the endgame is that this constant, pervasive foreshadowing of Lydia eventually getting a Bushell's worth of ricin is a feint. Walt's going to take it himself and Lydia's actual fate will be permanent paralysis caused by damage done to her neck by the frequent donning of her incognito sunglasses -- driving her right into the waiting arms/sip-and-puff of white-collar criminal and fellow quadraplegic Ted Beneke. Well, maybe that is just a little crazy. But I do think Walt's going to take the ricin.

Edited to add: boy I hope he takes out Elliot and Gretchen.

Whaaaat? You're a little crazy. I hope nothing happens to them at all, because it's been made really clear that his break-up with Gretchen and departure from Gray Matter was self-motivated and spurred largely by his own pissiness (Walt's definining character trait).

Oh, man. A bit of a subdued outing (save from Jesse's scenes and the Walt/Flynn phone call), but those last few moments got me so pumped up for the finale... I can't wait. big grin

Anyways, so much for the Walt is evil people here. You can't beat neo nazis at this sort of shit. Still, that restaurant conversation, and the DEA with Mary at the beginning...that's another factor to count in.

As for Jesse, I hope he'll remember a thing Walt thought him other than meth cooking, the red phosphorus bomb.

We haven't seen those flashbacks to Jesse about to light up a cig in the lab while Walt was going on about "this is an exothermic reaction.." and uncle Jack telling Todd to "let him worry about what he's breathing" for nothing.

Anybody else lol'd at Todd's "nice clothes" and disappointment that Lydia wouldn't sit on the same table as him ? big grin

That was amazing.

My favourite episode of season 5 (though, I'm expecting next week to top it).

It was much, much more subtle than the last few episodes have been, with no huge moments akin to
.

I know that

It nearly made me cry on a few occasions.

And Bryan Cranston's performance was simply breath-taking. I just struggle to see how they're going to manage to pack everything they've still got to tie up into the last episode.

It really was a fantastic episode. Did anyone else got chills when the theme song started to kick in at the end? love

On a side note, I love the fact that, no matter where Walt winds up in America, he's always surrounded by baron land in the middle of nowhere.

Of course. What kind of meth baron would he be without his barony? He'd just be a meth dabbler.  roll eyes

Yeah, it was kind of surreal to hear the theme actually playing out the episode. I didn't even recognise it at first. But you know what this means? You know what just got real? Shit.

Nicely stated, tnuk. I'm curious as to how Walt's family will come out of this. Very excited, but also sad to see it go.

I'm really starting to feel sad at the realisation of the hole in my life that this is going to leave behind. It's all very sad.

But, I mean, I'm happy that it's been so amazing and we're bound to get such an amazing send-off, tonight.

And we've got Better Call Saul to take the edge off - well, hopefully take the edge off, rather than rub salt in the wounds.

No one in their right mind would actually want the show to come back.

It's been winding down since season 4. After the next episode, there won't be anywhere left for it to go.

They're going to conclude it. To drag it on with another season, afterwards, would be ridiculous.

I want it to conclude with a bang instead of trundling on until people stop caring about it and the quality wanes because they're stretching the story out and it gets cancelled - yeah.

But, I digress. Didn't Vince Gilligan say Walt was going to come out of all this? Because my friend keeps saying she really thinks Walt's gonna die, but wouldn't that ruin the point they're trying to make? That he's willing to risk everything. Literally everything, to not get caught. To keep the money. Am I right here?

Good ending. Very satisfying. And like cyber_turnip, I am very happy that it is ending. I like closure. They ended it well, and it will go down in history as one of the best shows ever.

Also, I predict that Better Call Saul will be a flop. Prove me wrong, fellas!

I concur that it was absolutely perfect. I was kinda hoping Todd would have a sip of Lydia's tea too, being the creepy fuck that he is, but other than that, everything worked out exactly how I'd hoped it would. Walt went out exactly as he should have, and I'm thrilled that Jesse made it out alive... I don't recall my heart ever pounding quite as hard as it did during the Walt/Jesse confrontation in this episode.

To a show that's always left me enthralled, inspired, entertained, and completely breathless in general, I can now say, above all, that it's left me satisfied. What a truly flawless run Breaking Bad ultimately had... It will be sorely missed. smile

But, I digress. Didn't Vince Gilligan say Walt was going to come out of all this? Because my friend keeps saying she really thinks Walt's gonna die, but wouldn't that ruin the point they're trying to make? That he's willing to risk everything. Literally everything, to not get caught. To keep the money. Am I right here?

I don't recall such a quote, and given how secretive Gilligan was about the show's final episodes, I'd imagine it's been taken out of context regardless.

However, he DID say that there was a little bit in the finale he put in after hearing it as a prediction for the finale from the now-deceased teenager with cancer (to whom 509 was dedicated). Nothing major, just one line that the teenager suggested and Vince really liked. Having seen it, I'm now guessing it was Walt's "I felt alive" monologue?

EDIT: Also, I loved all the long shots with Walt out of focus in the distance. Like he's a lingering ghost... AND, the final shot of the show mirrored the final shot of "Crawl Space," too! big grin

I can't believe how negative so many people are being about the finale on various other boards.

It wasn't the absolute best episode ever made, but it was still a damned fine end to an incredible show. It did an admirable job of wrapping everything up, giving all the characters a goodbye and also giving us one last wacky Walt science scheme. It was brilliant.

This is a great article of Vince Gilligan talking all about the finale. I particularly like what he has to say about Jesse's fate:

"We always felt like the viewers desired Jesse to get away. And its up to the individual viewer to decide what happens next for Jesse. Some people might think, Well, he probably got two miles down the road before the cops nailed him. But I prefer to believe that he got away, and hes got a long road to recovery ahead, in a sense of being held prisoner in a dungeon for the last six months and being beaten to within an inch of his life and watching Andrea be shot. All these terrible things hes witnessed are going to scar him as well, but the romantic in me wants to believe that he gets away with it and moves to Alaska and has a peaceful life communing with nature."

Also in this article Aaron Paul has a similar thought:

"Paul has a few ideas, though, about what happened to Jesse. In my mind, he gets the hell out of Dodge, he says. Hes like, Oh my god. I think he probably goes and says bye to Brock, if he can, or at least just sees him from a distance and then he leaves. Maybe Alaska, maybe New Zealand. Becomes a bush pilot. Its all part of the story."

I'd like to think that, too. smile

My one and only complaint about the finale is that I would've liked to have seen more of the White family. And Jesse too, but I understand why they had to keep it all ambiguous. This has been Walt's story, after all, and no matter what tangents the show has gone on, everything comes back to Walt in one way or another.

A little glimpse of what became of Saul would've been nice too, though again, I understand how virtually impossible it would have been to seamlessly write it in.

Jesse's final story arc was pretty much a metaphor for all he'd been through, anyway. He was held prisoner to a life he no longer wanted any part of, was beaten down to virtually nothing, but managed to escape with his spirit still relatively in tact.

Is anybody else wondering when the messed-up fanfics about Walt Jr. or Holly following in their father's footsteps will arrive?

Anyhow, I think that the show nailed the ending, and it couldn't have been any better. With one tiny exception... Walt really ought to have died in the daytime, in the open, looking up at a perfectly clear blue sky. I understand why they did it the way that they did, but I feel that it would have been a nice symbolic touch to "fade to blue".

Still, that's an incredibly minor point. Breaking Bad wasn't far off perfect from beginning to end.
