Well, his son is going to end up with about 8 million dollars. So there is that.

I was very disappointed Skyler didn't give Walt a HJ for his birthday

As far as Jesse's confession, it also implicated Todd's killing Drew Sharpe, so maybe the AB destroyed it? Have we seen specific mention of how many copies were made?

Also, can Lydia be saved by knowing she was poison by Ricin by going straight to the hospital?

What happened to the bags of money that Jesse had when he was tossing out cash like a newspaper boy? Do the cops have it? I don't think he ever got it back.

I am happy Jesse got away. But I wish he was able to make off with a bag of cash.

Great review here.

http://www.latimes.com/entertainment...,5734758.story

Quote:
Going into the finale, all eyes were on Jesse (Aaron Paul), the tweaker student Walter exploited and empowered, abused and adored. Made a meth slave by Todd (Jesse Plemons), Uncle Jack (Michael Bowen) and his gang of white supremacists, Jesse seemed Walt's only true path to redemption, and Walt did not disappoint. Science may be the study of transformation, but in this case, a working knowledge of robotics didn't hurt, and this time Butch and Sundance got to reverse the flight of bullets.

To be honest, I don't think he wanted it. I also don't think he will go anywhere near Brock as he probably thinks he's caused enough pain in his life. I think Jesse goes far, far away and never comes back

In her slow death, there will be many moments of anger. She has no problem killing people or having them killed...

I dunno. I'm fine with it but just another moment like "Uncle Jack should have killed Walt in the desert". We all saw the result of that bad decision.

When I watched the scene with Walt asking for a trust to be setup, I wondered what Turtleboy would think of that arrangement. Giving Flynn ALL of it, no strings attached, when he turned 21.

Totally agree, but arranging a hit takes a few calls and a pile of cash. Easy enough for someone in that world.

Vacuum repair guy told him in the last episode.

Having had a night to dwell on it I think ultimately this was simply not as good as the other episodes in this season. Too many conveniences for that ending, no searching his car, getting to park his car exactly where he wanted, knowing the clubhouse layout, having the whole gang in the clubhouse etc. etc.

It was a satisfying ending but, as mentioned, just a middle of the pack episode. I think Ozymandias was just too good (even Vince said that) and nothing could follow it.

They did get there quickly, to what I thought was a very remote location. Perhaps "gunshots were reported"...

It was a finale show. It was tying up the loose ends that we all wanted tied up and would go NUTS if they weren't. We would be here going - wait, what about Lydia and what about Saul....

It was not supposed to be a shocker imo, though it had some of those in it. It was just an end - and a damn fine one.

I suppose, I assumed they were in the middle of nowhere though. They got to the spot in the desert where Walt had hidden his money in about 10 minutes, but I suppose they could have neighbors.

Maybe he put so much in that by the time of that call he knew it was too late. Didn't really think about it.

Great series and great finale. As mentioned on Talking Bad, very glad it wasn't one of those vague endings that leave it up to the viewers to interpret (hate those!). Nothing worse in a finale (IMO) that after investing years in a series, it is left wide open.

For crying out loud, even with all the closure provided, this thread is replete with further conjecture of what happens to Jesse, does Lydia survive, does she take revenge on Skylar, lol.

Well done with all major points addressed.

You're right, it's not, because you are flat out wrong and you can't admit it, both songs were written by Marty Robbins, so I'll take his material over some lyrics site.

Excellent finale. Although I have to admit I'm a little bummed that Walt didn't really get it worse in the end. Sure, he died, but he was going to anyways...in the end his money will end up going to his family. He actually achieved that ultimate goal.

I would have rather seen him living in the end with nothing to show for his turning to a life of crime except splitting his family apart.

The one thing that struck me was how there were no apologies from Walt. He told Skylar the truth but apologized for none of it. No apology for Jessie either. Did he complete his transformation into Heisenberg and and no true remorse, or did Walt just realize that any apology from him would ring hollow at this point?
