And even Marie gets some closure with Hank's body being found.
I'll be the first one to say it -- I think the Six Feet Under series finale was better, if we're just comparing finales. But overall, of course, BB was a better show overall. As mentioned above, Ozymandias was really the pinnacle of the series, and the last couple of episodes were just tyeing up all the lose ends.
It's also the attention to details that this crew really nails... like when the trunk gun was done firing, the garage door opener light turns on.
Also, Jesse might not know exactly where the money is, but he does know the AB had possession of it, and I'd guess it's somewhere inside their compound. But no way he's going back there to get it.
Also, Walt had to take care of Lydia, because Skyler was still a liability to her, and especially now that the AB is gone, and if Skyler talks (as part of a plea deal), Lydia could/would be caught. So Walt had to take care of her first.
I also loved Walt giving the gun to Jesse, because Jesse "wanted this". And even more I loved Jesse deciding (after seeing that he was going to die anyway) to not do it.
That was quite the satisfying crazy laugh from Jesse while driving away. Perfect.
Very satisfying series finale, liked it a lot.
Why would the Nazi's ego suffer by what Walt thought of his "partnership" with Jessie?
Jesse gets free. And gets to kill Todd
Walt dies, at his own hand basically. And gets one last look at his "precious".
Really thought he was gonna whack the GreyMatter people. But nope. He gets them to give Flynn some money. We see Skinny Pete and Badger again! Woo hop. Skylar will be able to tell the DEA where Hank and Gomie are buried. I just wonder where all the rest of the money is.
I hope Jesse is gonna be OK. Maybe he goes to look after Brock.
Will Saul get that management position with Cinnabon?
I think it was when Walt said Jack was a liar or lying. That triggered something in Jack.
It was a good way for Walt to actually see what they had done to Jesse and to see that it wasn't a partnership but a master/slave thing.
What I found so delightful about the Gretchen and Elliot thing was that not only did Walt figure out a way to use them to get the money to his kids, but he also got his revenge as well. They now have to live their lives in fear that the "hitmen" are out there.
After the (legitimate) complaining following Ozymandias about bulletproof cars, it was nice seeing the bullets of Walt's gun tear through the trunk, the wall, and everything in between.
I posted this in last week's thread, but spoilerized. Here they are in their full glory...
Marty Robbins "El Paso"
Out in the West Texas town of El Paso
I fell in love with a Mexican girl
Night-time would find me in Rosa's cantina
Music would play and Felina would whirl
Blacker than night were the eyes of Felina
Wicked and evil while casting a spell
My love was deep for this Mexican maiden
I was in love but in vain, I could tell
One night a wild young cowboy came in
Wild as the West Texas wind
Dashing and daring
A drink he was sharing
With wicked Felina
The girl that I loved
So in anger I
Challenged his right for the love of this maiden
Down went his hand for the gun that he wore
My challenge was answered in less than a heart-beat
The handsome young stranger lay dead on the floor
Just for a moment I stood there in silence
Shocked by the foul evil deed I had done
Many thoughts raced through my mind as I stood there
I had but one chance and that was to run
Out through the back door of Rosa's I ran
Out where the horses were tied
I caught a good one
It looked like it could run
Up on its back
And away I did ride
Just as fast as I
Could from the West Texas town of El Paso
Out to the bad-lands of New Mexico
Back in El Paso my life would be worthless
Everything's gone in lifenothing is left
It's been so long since I've seen the young maiden
My love is stronger than my fear of death
I saddled up and away I did go
Riding alone in the dark
A bullet may find me
Tonight nothing's worse than this
Pain in my heart
And at last here I
Am on the hill overlooking El Paso
I can see Rosa's cantina below
My love is strong and it pushes me onward
Down off the hill to Felina I go
Off to my right I see five mounted cowboys
Off to my left ride a dozen or more
Shouting and shooting I can't let them catch me
I have to make it to Rosa's back door
Something is dreadfully wrong for I feel
A deep burning pain in my side
Though I am trying
To stay in the saddle
I'm getting weary
Unable to ride
But my love for
Felina is strong and I rise where I've fallen
Though I am weary I can't stop to rest
I see the white puff of smoke from the rifle
I feel the bullet go deep in my chest
From out of nowhere Felina has found me
Kissing my cheek as she kneels by my side
Cradled by two loving arms that I'll die for
One little kiss and Felina, good-bye
Solid ending and enjoyable but I agree the last two were more like a winding down epilogue. Definitely a satisfying ending but far from perfect, as a story ending it was OK but the episode had plenty of flaws. I started watching it with a nervous, tense stomach but as it went on it became pretty clear how it was going to end and the tension reduced.
I was slightly annoyed by the "TV" stuff, the multiple camera angles during the opening scene in the car just got annoying. The whole "will he reach his keys" thing was distracting and unnecessary. Even the wooden beam thing, it was great when they revealed Walt but annoying when they kept it between Walt and Skyler - symbolism anyone? The parking the car thing also. A lot of this stuff stretched believability for me.
I hadn't thought about the money but it has to be somewhere I also forgot about Huell
Ditto. Vince was batting 1000 on the finale as well as he's done the whole run. This has to be the best finale I can remember.
Kinda. The guy in the song goes back to see his true love despite having to get though a gauntlet of lawmen running him down. He dies from the gunshots in his beloved Felina's arms.
I was waiting for one last twist as Jesse, laughing hysterically, drives right into a tree.
How cool and appropriate is "A Special Love I have for you, my baby BLUE...I guess I got what I deserved..."
Well, that didn't take long:
Breaking Bad Ends With Reveal That Whole Series Was Plot of Book Marie Shoplifted
And that of course, is Baby Blue by Badfinger. Instantly recognizable by any child of the 70s.
Guess I got what I deserved
Kept you waiting there too long, my love
All that time without a word
Didn't know you'd think that I'd forget or I'd regret
The special love I had for you, my baby blue
All the days became so long
Did you really think, I'd do you wrong?
Dixie, when I let you go
Thought you'd realize that I would know
I would show the special love I have for you, my baby blue
What can I do, what can I say
Except I want you by my side
How can I show you, show me the way
Don't you know the times I've tried?
Guess that's all I have to say
Except the feeling just grows stronger every day
Just one thing before I go
Take good care, baby, let me know, let it grow
The special love you have for me, my Dixie, dear.
Her name is Felina. Rosa's Cantina.
How about how we called a lot of it?
The Ricin in Lydia's Stevia.
Walt visiting Gretchen and Elliot, although Vince surprised the crap out us as to why.
Walt using the canon on the Nazis.
"Lydia the tattooed lady..." I really doubt that Todd will know that one.
It's too bad that Jesse didn't have some money to pass to Brock. I mean, even if he goes to see Brock he really doesn't have a tie to him...Brock is probably at his grandmothers or something.
that was great
It was also pretty cool how Walt jumped on Jesse when the gun went off and kind of covered him. Made me think of the old Walt/Jesse dynamic.
Anyone else have a great big hole inside them where Breaking Bad used to be? Six years of these characters. The writing, the acting, every part of this show was just incredible.
The last time I felt this way, and the only other time I've *ever* felt this way, was the finale of LOST. The end of a series that made its way deep into the heart of me.
[aside--please don't digress into LOST and how it finished and whether you liked it or not and yada yada. My ONLY reason to mention it is the emotional impact it had, not a review/comparison of finales or series. Please don't go there]
It will be a long time before another Breaking Bad happens.
Thank You to everyone involved in this series.
