    Well, if they do any kind of police work at the scene they'll find his fingerprints on a murder weapon.

    I don't see the Nazis not searching Walt's car as a big deal. What would they be looking for? Certainly not a souped up machine gun. Even if they thought it was bugged, they moved indoors. The rest of your quibbles, yeah they stretched the imagination a little bit.

    hahahahaha....Felina is the Spanish spelling and it was used in the original lyrics of El Paso. It's the root for the English word "feline".

    They looked into the backseat, they searched him for weapons and even a wire. No need to open the trunk. Said it before, but thought it was very Walter White as to how he parked where he wanted and then was so blaise about it that the guy didn't tell him to move the car.

    "Becky is on the left, Carrol is on the right."

    I also like how uncle Jack made a point to ask if Walt's hair was a wig. I thought it looked kind of fake compared to the scene in Denny's, which I assume was his real hair.

    I don't think any copies were made. As mentioned in a previous thread (and totally viewable on screen), the AB took the video camera from Hank's house, *and* was using it to replay Jesse's confession back in the "clubhouse". Also, if you recall, at Hank's house, he asked Gomie for "another SD card". So I'm going to guess that the only copies were the SD card in the camera, and maybe one or two others the AB also retrieved from Hank's house.

    I don't always agree with Mo Ryan's opinions (yet I don't call her names :)) but I thought her review of this episode was spot on

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/maureen-ryan/breaking-bad-finale-review_b_4015186.html

    Reading that just now made me realize the two biggest issues with the finale (1) Jesse barely featured (2) basically it was about mopping up minor characters.

    A few quotes

    I think she's too short-sighted and selfish. Jesse did what he did because he finally realized that (1) Walt was going to die anyway, and (2) he wanted to get as far away as possible, as quickly as possible from that "life". There's a saying "don't engage"... while Jesse may have felt all those things, it was his one and only chance to escape. If he tried to engage Walt about any of those things, he'd lose his one and only change to get away from it all and not look back. He made the right choice.

    eta: And mentioned above, everything they both felt was clearly and finally summed up in those last to looks they gave each other. Nothing more was needed.

    Good column, thanks for sharing.

    And yes, not enough of Jesse and Walt. There just wasn't anything more that could be said, and yes, the look they share at the end said a LOT. Still, the fangirl in me says more Jesse is always better than any Lydia or Marie or anyone else.

    :up: Yep, that was the answer I was hoping we would get. I made my initial post before he made that statement. I was posting during the show.

    Oh man, you are SO WRONG.

    The Spanish word Felina is NOT the root of the English word feline.

    The LATIN word Felinus-Felina-Filinum is the root of the English word feline.

    How can ANYBODY be SO WRONG?!?!? :mad::eek::rolleyes:

    :D

    I'm a little confused by those who insist that Walt did not pay much of a price. I don't know how anyone could watch the scenes of Walt looking over his daughter while she slept and of Walt Jr./Flynn going into the house (knowing that he'd never see either again and that one of them would never have any point of reference to remember him and the other would hate him for the rest of his life) and not feel that he both paid the ultimate price for his crimes and was well aware of it. Oh yeah, he also dies.

    For the most part, Sepinwall liked the finale, but said it was almost too neat and tidy...

    I just received a sample of "True Lemon" lemonade drink mix. The packaging state it's "naturally sweetened with Stevia".:eek:
    Not sure if I'll drink this....:D

    The point is that he mostly controlled his exit, hence he did not learn from the total loss of control he gave to most other people.

    He said it made him feel alive.

    Think of his evolution - he basically started the series as a drone. Despite the obviously terrible consequences, he finally feels like he's lived. That's a pretty big win for anyone.

    When they file Better Call Saul, how far back in time will it be? Jesse knew what he really was during Breaking Bad. Mike also worked for him.

    This.

    She would do two things in this order and wouldn't have time to put a hit on anyone:

    1. Call the nanny to take care of her daughter
    2. Call an ambulance to see if something could be done. She doesn't know for sure that it was ricin and she could not recover.

    Both Jesse and Saul being left alive and the uncertainty of Lydia's fate provides more sequel opportunities.

    This is why I was concerned about Jesse leaving his prints on that gun.

    I thought the SAME thing when WW shot Jack. Loved that vengeance trumped greed.

    I don't remember but did Walt's product cause "meth-mouth" and other bad methy things?
