PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Rewatched the 5th season over the weekend and last nights episode! Wow just speechless, what's everyone's opinion
Clearly there won't be time for the "five hit men." It looks like Walt will have to do everything on his own. He's obviously lost his family. If the cancer doesn't take him, will it be Jack/Todd or the ricin?
What's going to happen with Lydia?
The finale is gonna be frickin' bananas. There is so much that still has to play out. It does seem like Walt is going to die, which sucks, but I hope it is in a blaze of glory.
We don't give a damn for the whole state of Michigan, we're from O-HI-O!
things that still need to be resolved:
1. (most important in my mind) the backstory to why Walt left Gretchen and Gray Matter. How Walt reacts to their charlie rose interview, is he literally going to come after them? Or is he just going to try to tear down their company somehow? Maybe in his mind he could even prove gray matter is "his" somehow?
2. Jesse and the Nazi's. Will Jesse escape? Will Todd and his uncle get their come-up-ins? Is poor Brock safe? Will Walt get his money back?
4. Will Walt get one last face to face moment with his family? Is there any chance of even the slightest bit of catharsis there?
5. Who lives and who dies.
It's certainly a lot. #3 is completely optional and may not happen, #4 sorts itself out. #1, #2 and #3 must be addressed though. I think 75 minutes is enough time to do that.
Dont think #1 has to be addressed, it was used as motivation to get him angry. He was willing to give himself up before that interview, but the fact that they minimized his role in building grey matter angered him. It motivated him to finish what was stolen from Heisenburg and prove the meth empire was his.
I think it does, as I think the reason he left gray matter will be character defining, and I think the writer has actually hinted at that a few times.
I'm not alone either, as many think that is the most important unanswered question in the show.
also just noticed an error
"It's certainly a lot. #3 #4 is completely optional and may not happen, #4 #5 sorts itself out. #1, #2 and #3 must be addressed though. I think 75 minutes is enough time to do that.
I can't believe I saw Wee-Bey doing a Capital-One commercial with Baldwin.
Wee-Bey is a cop now! WTF?!?!?
"Get him a body bag, Yeah!"
I just hope we don't have a Sopranos type of ending. We need a closed door, not an open one.
I wasn't born a Buckeye but I became one as fast as I could.
ALL GOOD THINGS COME TO AN END! Enjoy the finale!
My prediction for the finale: It will be revealed that Pat Hayden has been trying to track down Walter while he has been hiding out at the Cabin in Hew Hampshire. He's been studying one of Chip Kelly's long lost playbooks, and he is ready to coach the Trojans.
Disappearing man drops Walter off in front of the Coliseum, and Walter heads onto the field as the USC band plays "Tusk", welcoming him. Jesse can be seen in the student section, refusing to sit down after angry alumnus yell at him to "sit down!" Meanwhile, Lane Kiffen is chained up in the pit, cooking meth for the Nazi gang. Fade to black.......
I love a happy ending.
So pumped up right now! Haven't been so excited for a finale in a long time.

Todd better die. :/
"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.
Good ending, but no real surprises.
Great finale folks!
Great ending to a fantastic series!
Here's hoping a certain chemist makes a cameo in The Walking Dead.
Finale was perfect for the series. I was unbelievably psyched when Jesse was awarded the opportunity to finish off Todd with a beast ass choke out. Spectacular ending, and probably the best show of my lifetime (1984-present). I feel resolution, which is good, but I'm also heartbroken that the adventure must end. Amazing show.
I posted these thoughts elsewhere, however @ccatanzaro your last full sentence was dead on. Really will be missed, but that it went out on top was the best way to go, never had a week where you felt like you were forced to watch a filler episode as the show was dying.
I was a little disappointed. I seriously wanted Marie to die.
What the hell did she do?
We can't stop here; this is bat country...
Besides being a klepto? She was extremely annoying.
When she wasnt wearing purple during her phone call to Skylar I was starting to wonder.
FYI - I watched about 10 minutes of the Michael J. Fox show. Marie is in it, playing his wife, and she was wearing purple. Made me kinda laugh.
Marie wore less and less purple as the season/series came to an end.
Better ending than The Sopranos!
"Because I couldn't go for 3"
Certainly the best series/show I've ever seen. Probably one of the more satisfying endings I've ever seen as well. Walter can't be saved. His time is running out. What will he do? He gets revenge on his enemies and at the same time helps the people he still loves. Pretty much ties up all the ends while going out on his own terms; what he wanted all along.
Amazing conclusion to an amazing series.
I really thought the final episode showed Walt's genius perfectly. He was never rattled (well, except maybe when Uncle Jack put a gun to his head) and he was always in control. I also thought the finale had some pretty comical portions. Mostly when Walt was at Gretchen and Elliot's crib. The way he just was hanging out in the courtyard and waltzed in was hilarious to me. I also thought the part when he was in the desert put together his swiveling trunk gun was funny because he was just sitting there whistling like he was washing the dishes or something.
I'm glad Jesse didn't kill Walt, although, for a second, I thought for sure Jesse was going to shoot him. It was awesome to see Jesse release all his rage on Todd. My brother and our buddy were yelling, "Get 'em Jesse!"
Arggh. I loved every minute of last night's episode, and I will definitely miss the show. It will be quite a while before a show of the same caliber comes along.
R.I.P. Walter White.
Just the best ending to the best show. That's it - just perfect.

I'm satisfied with the way things ended. Walt had to die in the end. I'm glad he got some of his money to the family. I'm glad he was able to make his peace with Skyler and say good bye to Holly. Jesse is free and got Todd in the end. Everything is complete.
This show will be missed. Nothing will fill its void, and all future dramas will be compared to it. I'm hoping the Saul prequel helps with the eventual DT's that are coming our way.
"Say my name."
Ok I'll be the first to admit that I cried, partly because Walt died (I know it had to happen eventually, either from cancer or being killed), but mainly because such an amazing show that I've followed for 4 years is now over....
Are you a woman?
The ending where you see Walt's bloody hand slip was also very heartbreaking. It was almost impossible for me to believe that a seemingly invincible man, who always figured out a way to escape death, was now dead.
Great ending to my all-time favorite TV series. The scene that got me was Walt looking through the laundry room at Walt Jr coming home from school. Knowing it would be the last time he would see him. Very touching.
Agreed. Very touching. I felt empathy for him during that scene and when he was saying goodbye to Holly. But I think the more poignant part of that scene is when it pans back and they show Walt Jr. walking into that squalor. Walt put him there. Walt is responsible for every burden his family now has to bear. That's where the empathy ended for me. That said, for as much as I've grown to despise Walt, I give him credit for finally admitting that everything he did was for himself, not for his family. After that I was able to sit back and enjoy watching him unleash his vengeance. And sparing Jesse was a nice touch.
If you kill me you won't get your money...(blood splatter on the camera). Perfect.
I enjoyed Todd's death more. Too bad they didn't show Lydia die. :/
DAMMIT HUELL IS STILL IN THAT ROOM
Also, this should be a spinoff
So after a couple of months of "Breaking Bad" taking over my twitter timeline, I saw the marathon on and decided to DVR every episode last week. I figured it would take me a couple of months to watch the entire series, but once I started watching, I couldn't stop. I finally finished the finally a few hours ago. I could not stop watching, and when I wasnt watching I couldnt help but think about what was going to happen next. That's what is so great about this show. Every episode will leave you on the edge of your seat wanting more. Im glad I got to experience it the way I did. It was like one huge movie that I never wanted to end.
I already miss it.
HANSMAN'S FAVORITE POSTER.
I'm still a little upset that I missed the first 5-6 episodes of season 1. No one told me there would be a marathon. DX
If you have Netflix all the seasons (besides the recent one) are available.
