Damnit! I wanna see what Jeese is up to after driving off like a maniac. Maybe signaling a chapter of Need For Speed? Or maybe Jesse just ends up killing himself since he drove too fast.

Finally caught the episode, so I guess I can comment on it without getting e-mugged now

I'll just say, it was the perfect Breaking Bad ending. Everything that was a hallmark of the show was featured in full force in the finale. Stayed true to its roots.

Overall, I loved the way things ended.

The Scarface ending happened. Walt, once again, got the best of someone with his brains - the Nazis could have killed him when he walked in, bbut he was able to use Jack's pride against him and got an opportunity.

Walt pleaded for Jack to spare Hank's life for all his barrels of money, and Jack ended Hank's life mid sentence. Just like two episodes ago, Jack pleads Walt to spare a life for the seven barrels of money, the plea is cut off by a bullet to the face mid-sentence.

Hank and Gomie will get a proper burial. Marie will get closure.

Lydia, who always cared so much about her perfect appearance (and her ****ing Stevia packets) would probably eventually end up dead in bed. +1 for Walt, who got her from the grave.

Jesse was freed, and got to brutally murder Todd for Revenge, as well as his lack of human emotion and murdering of Andrea.

Walt got the last laugh in his relationship with Gretchen and Elliot, and his family will finally receive compensation for the shit he put them through without feeling guilty about it.

Walt FINALLY admits that the business was more for him than for his family, and Skyler seemed genuinely relieved and pleased with him for coming to terms with it.

Walt and Jesse shared a final look of grim recognition for one another. Although not quite what I was hoping for.

And Walt dies next to his one true love, as the cops descend upon him, ready to uncover the greatest crime story America has ever seen. With Walt dying there, the cops will find him and the meth lab, along with the nazis and the barrel of money. That way the feds would know he was cooking all along and working with the nazis, and after finding the barrel of money, pretty much means Skylar is off the hook completely. And His legacy will live on. They'll remember his name.

9/10, feeling pretty satisfied. Only thing that would make me happier is if Walt and Jesse actually made peace and shared one last bromance moment.

I'd like it better if they go with a darker ending where Skylar, Flynn and the baby was brutally tortured and murdered. Walt and Jesse becomes meth making slaves and Todd gets his one night stand with the missus.

That's more up Game of Thrones' alley. If BB was based on a G.R. Martin novel, Walt would've been beheaded by Tuco in season 1 and everyone else would meet a gruesome death eventually. The rest of the White family would've been wiped out in the Red Breakfast

Yea, obviously its because he spent all that time alone with nothing to do. Remember the vacuum guy even said he'll have plenty of time to think things over.

none of these things forced him to objectively evaluate what he was doing?

What was so special? It was the end of the road. He lost everything that mattered to him and couldn't really do anything about it. I'm sure in his ideal world he would've been a meth kingpin that was able to elude the police all while having a family that loved him and he could take care of. All of that was gone now.

i just think that if walt was enough of a psychopath to be able to continue his ways, even after plenty of innocent people were killed, then there shouldnt really be any event traumatic enough for him to realise what a maniac he had become, you know?

i think if seeing hank, drew sharp, etc all die as a direct result of his actions weren't enough to make him change his ways, then nothing should.

You've never heard of someone having to lose everything before they realized everything they had done wrong and just how much of a ****ed up person they are?

The first scene with Walt and Jesse involved them giving looks but not exchanging words (when Jesse escaped the DEA on the roof). Just something I thought of.
