If you hanged around with me and my often Saul-like counterpart, ExperPenguin for the Dexter series finale liveblog, then you should check out the equally obsessed to-the-minute liveblog hilarity we engaged in during the Breaking Bad series finale. Read along, or put in your two cents during our goodbye to the best hero/anti-hero/villain on the TV landscape.
It’s true. He is with his precious.
Also, the ending crawl space shot was duly noted.
I wanted him to make it, and wasn’t sure he would.
Bravo, Walter. You were terrible. But at least you gave Jesse something back.
If anyone deserves a second chance, it’s Jesse.
Baby Blue was a perfect choice.
….There he goes. It’s all asunder, But it’s all over.
“Did you really think I’d do you wrong?”
What? You wouldn’t YOU check out the lab?
…One last cook?
Dees Jesse really get another chance?
That single nod at the end.
Love Lydia’s ringtone.
In his last moments, even an extended bid to regain control, Jesse refuses.
What could they possibly have to say to each other now?
…Jesse getting his revenge on Meth Damon.
…But good god. I think that beats even Uncle Jack’s 10-in-2-minutes massacre.
They’re both shadows of their former selves. I wonde–
M16 IN THE TRUNK!
Heisenberg is fishing. And he just pulled out the big fish.
Todd knows what’s up.
There has to be a reason he insisted on parking that way.
….The crank-like machine he made earlier?
Is the car itself the thing we need to watch out for?
I wish I could speculate. But I can’t.
Is it seriously 54 minutes in?
Yes, the transformation was gradual, but it did begin then.
The very second he decided to cook meth.
That would be the moment he started to redefine the world’s view of the man who became Walter.
When did Walter White become the mask, and Heisenberg the true self?
He did do it because he liked it; made him feel alive in a life almost completely marked with compromise and failure.
The truth for once.
Skyler: “You look terrible..”
Walter: “Yeah, but I feel good.”
Nice shooting there, director of photography.
HOW DOES HE KEEP APPEARING OUT OF THIN AIR?
Not a criminal mastermind at ALL. Didn’t have her fooled in the least :)
Marie is still the most clueless character in this show.
Keep at it, Marie. Those are the ONLY places he would go.
All I’m saying is, there better be a “Yeah Bitch!” in there somewhere.
So, is it just me, or could they have just injected this Aaron Paul driven Need for Speed movie into one of the games, with an interactive portion to offset the cheesiness?
I like that a collective OHHHHH rang out in this very room upon wondering just WHAT he was going to do with the ricin..
The beginning of the end, in that one word. “Someday.”
All roads led up to this, from that first decision, no?
Anyone wanna guess where the ricin cigarette is going?
In a broken home.
Now here is a broken man.
FINALLY back to Episode 1!
Jesse……you were so much potential.
So much. :(
Oh sheet! It was Badger and Pete! Heisenberg tactics on full usage.
“Passing the torch.”
…..Badger, and Pete?! With laser pointers?
lol. Still some Walter White in there. Just a bit.
So what now?
“Cheer up, beautiful people. This is where you get to make it right.”
This is the most terrifying man in television.
…..I couldn’t have predicted this safety measure. Hitmen?!
She can’t even touch him!
Hmmm. Is he really going to take their word on this?
With a dash of the Heisenberg pride for good measure.
I WAS wondering where that huge pile of cash went.
also, this is what it was meant for all along.
I think so. Walter White is gone now. All we will remember is Heisenberg.
…Is this the real FULL Heisenberg we’ve been expecting all along?
Because I’m thrown off.
Did Heisenberg just get threatened with a butter knife?
Oh, they’re soo suburban in their terror.
“Wine, and then–AAH!!”
Side note: Him being a machinist-like gaunt due to his cancer doesn’t help matters much.
Because he is finally a MONSTER.
WHY is this being shot like a horror movie?
I guess he REALLY is the one who knocks.
And there goes Jesse’s watch.
All he has left is his legacy.
..So um…exactly why is he stalking Gretchen…and…Elliot.
I still can’t believe we havent yet reached the cold open of the season’s start..’
Something to remember: This is no longer Walter White. This man is full-on Heisenberg.
Marty Robbins Tape?
And here we are. The last moments of a desperate man?
