    Weird Coincidence.

    I was at the Lions v. Bears game with a buddy yesterday afternoon. We were talking about taking another trip to NYC next summer. Out of the blue he says "remember our trip over Memorial weekend 1984 when we were walking through Greenwich Village and we heard Badfinger playing from one of the hole in the wall clubs?". We talked about how obscure they were and that we should have paid the $5 or $10 cover and so we could say we say we saw them.... I said at least we can say we heard them...

    Then about 7 hours later, Breaking Bad ends with the song "Baby Blue" by Badfinger and I get a text from my buddy that just says "Badfinger".

    Maybe Breaking Bad final / Blue Meth jarred the memory loose from his brain.

    I think Walt's objective was that Flynn's 18th birthday was within the year (9 months?) away, so E+G could set up the trust, and Flynn (and family) could benefit from the money pretty quickly. I don't think Walt trusted them enough to set up a similar trust for Holly which would be 16+ years out before she could access the money, even if they did set it up. Also, the "hit men" wouldn't be likely around in 16 years to see through his threat.

    It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue
    ~Bob Dylan

    You must leave now, take what you need, you think will last
    But whatever you wish to keep, you better grab it fast
    Yonder stands your orphan with his gun
    Crying like a fire in the sun
    Look out the saints are comin’ through
    And it’s all over now, Baby Blue

    The highway is for gamblers, better use your sense
    Take what you have gathered from coincidence
    The empty-handed painter from your streets
    Is drawing crazy patterns on your sheets
    This sky, too, is folding under you
    And it’s all over now, Baby Blue

    All your seasick sailors, they are rowing home
    All your reindeer armies, are all going home
    The lover who just walked out your door
    Has taken all his blankets from the floor
    The carpet, too, is moving under you
    And it’s all over now, Baby Blue

    Leave your stepping stones behind, something calls for you
    Forget the dead you’ve left, they will not follow you
    The vagabond who’s rapping at your door
    Is standing in the clothes that you once wore
    Strike another match, go start anew
    And it’s all over now, Baby Blue

    Jesse moves to Alaska as he previously intended. He goes off to buy some wood to start his woodworking career. There, he befriends a logger who just happens to discover his murderous past. ;)

    Has anyone commented yet on the fact that Lydia and Todd sat down face to face at the same table? Are we to assume from this that their relationship had moved beyond just being professional?

    Nah.

    He couldn't even say the word "blouse" when he was trying to compliment her.

    Stone cold killer, but not a clue how to speak to a woman. It was almost funny...

    I kinda a agree with you on this point. I see A LOT of "belly shots" on TV when people are shot once in the belly area, and then die pretty quickly, without a lot of blood loss. I'm not a doctor, but I don't think that's so realistic. From what I could tell, he was hit in the lower, right side of his abdomen. Maybe it got his liver or intestine, which I guess could be fatal, but not in a few minutes like Walt (again, not a doctor). Now if it were higher up, where it could hit a lung, heart, or major artery, sure, I'd believe it. But in that case, I doubt he'd be walking around.

    About 3 episodes ago, before Jesse turned on Walt and worked with Hank, Walt told Jesse the cancer was back.

    It was Hollywood writing that our key characters, Walt, Jack and Todd survived the barrage, while all of the other guys bought it.

    Why would Walt get hit when Jesse didn't? He didn't get low enough? Neither did the guy in the motorized Lay-Z-Boy.

    BTW, at the end you can hear liquid dripping, as in blood. Wow.

    It looked to me like he was shot in the chest.

    Right in the lung where the cancer had started.

    I thought it was kind of poetic, actually.

    IMHO, Walt got hit by a ricochet. The guy in the chair could be seen standing up as soon as Walt attacked Jesse and before the gunfire started.

    Definitely not the chest.. he opened his jacket and you could see the wound just above his belt line.

    Badfinger was introduced as an Apple (records, Beatles) band when they backed up George Harrison in the Concert for Bangladesh. I always assumed that they got picked up because they sounded like The Beatles: The New Generation.

    Not just above - I think it was several inches above and the blood pooled out.

    Anyone else want to weigh in here? I think it was a chest wound.

    Walt was getting kind of old. Perhaps he had his pants up to his armpits like grandpa.

    But yeah, it was not chest. Definitely lower.


    I couldn't find an image, but did find this one. How funny was that?

    My main small quibble with this episode? Marie calling Skyler to tell her that Walt is back in town and they are looking everywhere for him. Everywhere, I guess, except his wife's apartment as he is able to wander around outside with no problems while waiting for Flynn to get home from school.

    I almost felt like this scene was added just to give Marie a "last scene".

    I agree it was unnecessary.

    I agree with the others who said it was just above the belt line...definitely not in the chest.
