    At this point I'll watch Jesse from Breaking Bad paint walls and bake bread. I'll watch the fuck out of this.

    So this may have been answered previously, but I am scared of spoilers, so I haven't been going too far ahead in the thread but:

    Has Walt's cancer really come back? We have no one else's word to go on but his, and he isn't beyond lying to the forth wall. It makes it all the better when he disappears.

    "Well, he only had 6 months to live, so by now he is dead"

    We see him in chemo, both in ABQ, and by himself in a cabin in New Hampshire. So if he's lying, he's fucking committed.

    I haven't seen Granite State, but that is my own fault.

    I would have just figured that there being no authority figure to say, "you're still in remission, bitch" might have meant something.

    It would be a great twist if Jesse is the last man standing and becomes so fucked up that he (eventually) becomes the new meth kingpin and assumes the Heisenberg pseudonym. The twist is, it's about him Breaking Bad, not Walt. The last shot is him suiting up to cook with his own crew.

    I think Walt will take out the Nazis, Jesse will kill Walt, and somehow the money will get back to the family. That's my prediction.

    If this happens I'll be surprised, although most things I have read have predicted this for the ending.

    Spoiler as I can't believe I haven't even read this as a possible idea. Wow. It's commercial now so I still don't know if this is what will happen but if it does, very very very happy right now.

    Holy crap. He's going to give the money to his old partners to give to his family. They have enough that it wouldn't be suspicious.

    My flight got cancelled, I'm stuck in Seattle, and I missed the first 8 minutes of the episode... up until Walt is on the pay phone talking about a photographer or something. If anyone's reading this as the episode's playing, you mind giving me a 15 second recap of anything I missed??

    I read that ending as Walt taking credit for the blue meth made by Jesse and Todd.

    What an amazing show with a satisfying finale.

    I think it is more like he died with his loved ones.

    In contrast to Dexter this was a beautiful, logical, satisfying conclusion to a fantastic series. Like the coda of a beautiful symphony. I've already got the boxed set on my Christmas list. Out of all the really great shows that are out on DVD, I have never before wanted to own a set as bad as I want this one.

    I KNEW Lydia was getting that ricin. As soon as she spun that sugar holder around and flipped through to her chosen sweetener, I knew that bitch was ricin toast. And I KNEW the Schwartz's were going to play some kind of roll. Just wasn't sure what roll it would be. Brilliant.

    Somewhat anti-climactic, but a fair-to-midland ending.

    Great show overall. I will miss looking forward to new episodes.

    Somewhat expected but that ending was perfect. Every loose end that needed to got tied up. Very satisfying. I actually think that this ending elevates an already amazing show and it all went down the way it should have. The last few episodes were all tense and climactic. This felt right.

    Lydia. Perfect. Todd. Perfect. And we got to see two lovable idiots one last time in a perfect way.

    There's one loose end that wasn't tied up. I want to know if Huell is still nervously sitting in that hotel room.

    That's all I could think of after the show ended.

    That ending was perfect. And not to mention how Gilligan tossed this in there.

    The care, the attention to detail, the callbacks, the easter eggs. Fucking perfect.

    This review puts in good words.

    While I thought it tied everything up quite nice it did seem to lack some punch. I thought the last scene with Walt and Jesse kind of underwhelmed when given all theyve been through together and knowing what Walt confessed to Jessie. I think the reviewer has a point that it felt off that they gave much more time in the last episode devoted to tying up Lydia and Todd over Jessie. It felt good to see Jessie get out alive in the end. There were some really good scenes though. The whole scene at the Schwartz's was classic Breaking Bad tension pulled off perfectly. I liked the last scene with Skylar and leaving his kids.


    I guess the next discussion is where does the show rank all time. I still think The Sopranos is the top with this or Mad Men duking it out for the 2nd spot. I still have friends that refuse to hear anything but The Wire as number one.
