Never been more addicted to a TV show than I am to this one. Hey, get it? ADDICTED?

Gonna be very sad to say goodbye to the total bad-assness of Cranston.

Gilligan on the series finale:

“It’s going to be polarizing no matter how you slice it,” Gilligan told Vulture, “but you don’t want 10 percent to say it was great and 90 percent to say it sucked ass. You want those numbers to be reversed.” Of course, what exactly is going to happen we won't know until the episode airs, but according to Gilligan, he's aiming for a kind of bittersweet finale, not unlike one that was stamped on one of the greatest classic movies of all time -- "Casablanca."

“No one gets everything they wanted. The guy doesn’t get the girl, but he has the satisfaction of knowing she wants him. And he doesn’t get her because he has to save the free world. What better ending is there than that?” Gilligan said about the "pretty perfect" finale of the film. “I’m not saying we’re going to approach that or reach in that direction. Our story doesn’t line up [with 'Casablanca']. But we’re looking for that kind of satisfaction.”

But the elephant in the room is whether or not Walt will truly get away with it, or finally pay for all the breaking bad that he's done. And *spoiler* Gilligan is pretty clear on this point. “Not at all, really,” he said. “I’m very cornball in my own view of the world. It just makes sense to me that bad people should get punished and good people should be rewarded. I know it doesn’t work like that in real life, but there’s always that yearning.”

***MILD SPOILERS***

Trying to translate that "satisfaction" motif from Casablanca to BB, I'm guessing Walt is going to "get away with it," but at a huge cost. In other words I don't see him getting killed or going to prison. He'll probably wriggle his way out of culpability, but he'll find himself alone. The satisfaction element will maybe come from the viewer knowing that he's been deeply wounded.

I am most curious about how the Walt/Jesse relationship concludes. A season or two ago, I would've said there was a face-off coming; now I'm not so sure. I suppose Hank's imminent investigation will turn up a lot of skeletons, so that may still happen.

If Walt lives, there has to be a balance. He has to lose something that means a lot to him. I can see a scenario where you "gets away with it" but it will have a price.

We could probably take this conversation over to the Breaking Bad thread, but I'm interested in seeing you elaborate on this. I really don't see that at all.



I can kinda see what he's saying. Again all the standard qualifications- I love Breaking Bad, it's a great show, so on and so forth.


It does feel kind of... cyclical?
Walt and Jesse are working together
Walt's crazy alienates/upsets drives Jesse away (either to his own business, or a woman, or drugs)
Walt does something to get jesse back (killing gus's men, comatizing jesses girlfriend's kid, letting jesse's girlfriend die)
which leads to...

Walt and Jesse are working together.

You think "Breaking Bad" is the story of the relationship between Jesse and Walt?

I think it actually is a big part of what the show is about, because the way Walt relates to Jessie is usually the best indicator of where Walt is at any given moment. Walt/Jesse relationship is probably one of the best parts of the show,and the best dynamic between two characters in the entire series by a long shot.
