See I saw "Felina" and being a recovering dyslexic I just read it as "Finale". But I wasn't a Robbins fan so......

Edit: I also tried breaking it into elements but couldn't make sense of Iron....Lithium....Sodium as part of the story.

What about the tape the AB have from Jesse's confessions to Hank. The local PD and DEA will surely go through all the evidence and eventually uncover that he was a big part of the Heisenberg operation and that he murdered Gale. So Jesse is on the run......for a while.

All in all a great finale though. Look forward to whatever Gilligan does next.

I think she spends her remaining time in a mad scramble to take care of her daughter.

When I saw the title, I just presumed that it was being used as an anagram of "finale".

I think Walt figures they can do it as a 'gesture' or something like they donated that 28 million to a program for recovering Meth heads. How they move the money on the coffee table into a bank is a good question.

And yes, I wondered how Walt found Skyler's new house, but then he is crafty at learning stuff that way.

I think Walt would have been smarter to make it a smaller number. Less suspicious. A trust for 1.5 million each, Flynn and Holly.

I didn't realize what Felina was until your post. It's a fitting song, in which the singer rides back into town, faces down his enemies, and gets shot to death.

The "cleaner" told him where she was living "that place on Eubank"

Dead. The cops checked his pulse. If he were alive they wouldn't have been so relaxed after checking his pulse.

I was thinking that calling attention to the fireplace might have been a hint to us that that's how they'll dispose of the money. There's no way for them to use it directly. They'll get rid of it and put their own money in the trust.

Good stuff. I was a little disappointed, but that's mostly just because I didn't want it it end.

Money is fungible. Walt gave E&G the money so in his mind, it would be HIS money that goes to Jr. The exact machinations are irrelevant. He even made it clear that any expenses & taxes come out of his money.

I thought the song Baby Blue was incredible. It brought tears to my eyes. As we say goodbye to one of TV's greatest characters, as we see him say goodbye to what made him feel alive for the first time in years (ever?), we get a song that brings home all the poignancy of that final scene. His Baby Blue.

It probably helps that I knew that song, and remember it well.

From The Live Feed:

Quote:
Breaking Bad has ended -- but not before giving fans one final song to rock out to.

As we saw Walter White (Bryan Cranston) – bleeding and near death – back in a lab one last time, he had just the song to send him off. "Baby Blue," from 'British rock band Badfinger, played over Walt's last minutes. The song is from the band's album Straight Up and was a Billboard top 20 hit in 1972. The song was reportedly written about Dixie Armstrong, a woman lead singer Pete Ham had dated while on tour in the U.S.

Badfinger's "Baby Blue" follows a string of memorable blue-themed musical numbers for Bad, including "Crystal Blue Persuasion," by Tommy James and the Shondells, which was used in last year's mid-season finale.

"Baby Blue's" lyrics are appropriate for the end of Walt's journey, with lines such as "I guess I got what I deserved" and "I would show the special love I have for you, my baby blue." On The Talking Bad, show creator Vince Gilligan said the scene in which the song is used illustrated Walt's love for his blue product.

“I think in that last scene, he was with his Precious,” Gilligan said, referencing The Lord of the Rings.

The band, which played together from 1968-1983, found worldwide fame in the early 1970s with a string of hits, including "Baby Blue." Other signature songs included the Paul McCartney-penned "Come and Get It," "No Matter What," and "Day After Day."

I'm not sure anyone knows Jesse is alive.

One of the most touching scenes in a finale full of them...

At the end, standing outside the compound after Walt has just thrown down the phone from Lydia's call, he and Jesse are staring at each other. As they zoom in on Walt's face, he gives a slight, almost imperceptible nod, to Jesse. Jesse, staring back, with a range of emotions playing over his face, finally acknowledges it.

In that one scene, with not a word spoken, those two manage to convey two years of history (six years to us) between them. Every high, every low, the hate, the love, the achievements. All in one scene.

Yes!

That one moment says it all. That was the perfect ending for the two of them.

...but, then as Jesse backed up to drive off, I almost thought he would mow Walt down with the car!

OMG yes. I have the same problem here. In fact I was just sitting here thinking about my family and who to talk to about it and none of them watch it either.

Not really, any good that came of it was short lived. Jesse might end up coming out on top in some way, but that's about it.
