This. Somehow, this.

I also root for Walt Jr to get as much breakfast as he can, because, like him, I loves me some breakfast.

I'm rooting for Gomey. Hes about the only one on the show that's never been on the wrong side.

I would not feel bad if Walt and Jesse both die in the end. I do hope Walt is exposed before he dies though so he can reap what he has sewn.

So you're saying Walt is going to go into witness protection and his new identity will be Tim Watley, DDS?

So the poll fail was on purpose because there are only five characters on the show and rooting for one of the five is required?

I want Walt's cancer to go into remission and for him to get a life sentence.

I want to see him beat the cancer and escape...

...but lose his family, lose his money, and become so famous he'll never be able to start over. He'll just live cowering in fear of the inevitable capture for the rest of his life.

... Until he meets Louis and has five boys.




But seriously, based on the flash-forwards, it sure looks like he's lost his home, his family, and his identity (probably by choice)... don't know about the money. But if he still has the money and but lost his family, that would be the denouement, which is pretty much the opposite of what he wanted when he started in the meth cooking business (leaving his family with enough money to survive without him). When he started, he didn't know (1) the cancer would go into remission, and (2) that he would actually end up building an empire. Remember in "737" he calculated all that he needed to leave behind was $737k, and that was enough and he would stop. Didn't work out that way.

Heh, I was going to say "Like Whitey, only with a clue." Because Walter would be smart enough to realize he wasn't going to get away with it forever, whereas Whitey was enough of a moron to think he could just enjoy the rest of his life.

Marie, because she's grown on me this season.

And Jesse I root for to kill Walt. If Mr. White hadn't come along, Jesse likely would have stayed a two bit criminal, cooking a bit then blowing it on hookers and booze. Everything he's done that's been real bad have been because of Walt. So yeah, I do see him as having the moral high ground compared to Walt, and so I do root for him to get a bit of redemption by taking out the devil.
S1E1. Hank was a complete a**, and practically bullied (not physcially) Walt at Walt's birthday party.

S1. Walt walked away and wanted nothing to do with cooking any more, and Jesse brought him back in.

What episode did that happen in? I don't remember and in reading it looks like Walt went back to Jesse, not Jesse pulled him in.

I can't root for Walt Sr. He's gone from a half way decent guy to a total POS. Rooting for Hank mostly and a little for Jesse.

Jesse came to his house and threw his share of the money from their first and only cook at him.

To be fair, the poll spelled it Skylar and so at the least I am only partially to blame for that. I have no excuse for Jesse other than having rarely seen it spelled out (I only occasionally participate in the threads or read things about the show online). And it's still preferable to root for non-existent characters than any of the other choices presented.

Waited this long to catch up to 5.5 and get a bit into the season.

After catching up, I still have to root for Walt. I don't know why, since you're supposed to hate him by the 5th season...

Maybe because the others just don't seem as relatable? Hank's cool, but the way he gloats? Turn off. Skyler and Marie? Never liked Marie, and her gloating's even worse than Hank's. Skyler? Dang it, it's on and off - sometimes she's great, other times she's a pain.

That leaves Jesse. Dang, he'a neutral to me. Good most of the time, but when he's bad, man...

Leaves only Walt for me.

If the stevia does figure into the finale, I'm torn between these two viewpoints:

1. The writers tried too hard to plant the seed of "notice" in our minds or
2. They're just showing Lydia's compulsive/health kick/hoity-toity nature

Either way, it's a bittersweet night tonight.
