    That's incredibly apt. I love it. Kind of a spoiler for anyone that understands the poem, but not really surprising. It's not like anyone should be expecting the series to end with a series of marriages, after all. Walt's hubris has always been his his hamartia.

    Listen to Cranston's narration carefully. Either the audio was recorded in the worst studio ever, or this is actually taken from one of the remaining episodes.

    Wouldn't surprise me. 'Ozymandias' is the title of the 3rd to last episode.

    The musical is great!

    Zevida mentioned this in a thread over in HH, but for those like me who didn't already know, I thought it might be worth a mention here as well.

    Netflix now has the first half of season 5 available for streaming. Good time to get caught up.

    Is there a face in the smoke? Am I blind that I can't see it? If I squint my eyes and stand on my head then maybe there is something that in an alternate universe looks like a skull.

    For what it's worth, my guess is that this:
    [​IMG]
    ...is smoke issuing from the muzzle of the gun that Walt bought in S5:E1, which was actually one of these:
    [​IMG]
    Which is an M60 medium machine gun, 7.62x51mm NATO, aka .308 caliber. It fires 500+ rounds per minute, which means that the four ammo boxes we saw will last Walt less than 2 minutes.

    My guess for the final scene: Vince Gilligan has always said that he's telling the story of how a mild-mannered HS chemistry teacher turned into Scarface. So the final scene is where Walt slumps over the gun above, having used it on all his enemies.

    The scene in Scarface would be:

    Tony Montana: You wanna f--k with me? Okay. You wanna play rough? Okay. Say hello to my little friend!
    [Tony shoots]

    ...Walt will say something appropriate, I'm sure.

    They have done so cool musicals. I also love the Star Trek one they did.

    I've seen Bryan Cranston a couple of times recently on tv. It's surprising how much younger he looks in real life than Walter White.

    I was thinking this last night as I was rewatching some of the episodes from season 4. I wondered how much was make-up and just him assuming the character.
