One word; EPIC!!
It turned out very differently than I was expecting since I was expecting Walt to go out shooting up Grey Matter. Instead Walt reconnected to his humanity (somewhat) and tied up his loose ends through thorough planning and ingenuity. There were so many amazing moments in this episode that it felt better than pent-up Christian honeymoon sex.
My favorite moments included: 1. The kitchen scene with Skylar and Walt where Walt essentially apologized and stated his love through his actions for Skylar while saying goodbye. 2. Where Gretchen and Elliot are blackmailed into giving Walt’s money to Walter Junior. 3. Where Walt takes out the skin heads using his battery rigged machine gun. 4. Lydia getting poisoned with the Ricin originally meant for Gus. And, 5. Jesse finally taking out that rat faced sociopath Todd by choking him.
For a long time throughout the fifth season, I was waiting for Walt to get his just desserts. But seeing how things turned out at the end I was rooting for Walter White, and was happy to do so. I basically have no complaints other than the show being over. That ending had so many high notes it was better than hearing a choir of professionally trained Soprano singers. And speaking of The Sopranos, this show’s ending didn’t suck!
So, RIP Walter White and Breaking Bad. It’s been one hell of a ride.
I agree with every word you’ve said, a fitting ending to an awesome show that will absolutely go into my pantheon of best shows
Just one minor correction, the Ricin he used on Lydia was meant for Gus originally, it was made in the Super Lab. The Ricin he made for Tuco was dressed up to look like Meth and ended up in Tuco’s sandwich. On another note, what a great soundtrack! Vince Gilligan is the man.
