As for drug smuggling, doesn't matter if it's meth, coke or weed.
This is how it's done for real...

You know, watching Skyler in prior episodes and knowing she had the FULL opportunity to turn Walt in before things got worse just made me go, hummmm.

That'd cause a lotta turmoil as well though...plus most of the time he had cancer and could theoretically die at any moment.

Skyler didn't marry a criminal but he became one.

As for that wood-chipper vagina dialogue, Vince and his crew of writers sure depicted the scumbag low-brow type well.

When people withhold information, sometimes it hurts more than if they told you straight up.

Being sick is not a bargaining tool.
Neither is ignorance.

< 12 hours until the Finale.

So pumped, I think the only way I'm disappointed is if Walter dies before getting to fight Jack's group.

Well, I'm particularly excited because I was absolutely sure last week was the final.  I thought it ended in a strange place, but I figured, "Oh well."

+ multitudes!

I can't see a series ever coming close to Breaking Bad.

Less than 3 hours to go, but I'll wait till 9:30 to watch it so I can FF thru the commercials.

Walt really showed the pride he had of his "Baby Blue" , product and process as Badfinger played.

Excellent episode that took care of everything it needed to.

You're too cute.

The ending was OK, but I wish Walt had blown up the lab so we would have never knew if he lived or died. Hated seeing him laying in the floor like that.

Awww, thank you!  After working two 13/12 hour days, I sped home to be in before 9 to watch it!

This episode I actually silently cheered for Walt.  I could feel his every thought when he was walking through that apartment, picking up photographs, touching the walls, knowing the life he 'could have had' or the one he was denied of.

Walt despite all that he's done, I admired his badassery.
When those red target lights came on those two in precise timing, I was screaming silently AH HAAAAAA!!!!!! 

Contrary to Marie's statement, Walt is/was a Mastermind.  The chances he took, just WOW.  When he constructed his exit plan and that automatic ammo fire like an entire Gus F. cartel, I was just saying to myself, 'What a smart man.' Not so ironic that he got hit by his own bullet so to speak (and literally), yet he not pulling the trigger on himself, just another beautiful script.

I appreciated how Skyler showed tenderness and humanity to let Walt say his good-byes. 

I really loved the look Jesse had when laying his eyes upon Walt after months of forced slavery.  I also had a big Yessssssssssssssssssss when he walked away from it all and can't have anyone ever influence him again.

Buh Bye Todd.
*Neck crunch*

Buh Bye Todd's uncle
*Walt's rat's ass about where the rest of the money is*

In the marathon I noticed in an old episode again that Walt called Walt Jr. 'Jesse'. 

The entire show was so gracious in every way, to a real fan.
The WRITING
The music
The cinematography
The ACTING


Thank you Vince Gilligan for being so dark & brilliant.
Just lovely.

Walt?

He liked it.

The whole show revolved around his death, we all knew it would happen eventually. it needed to be shown. The question was always wether the cancer or a person would take him out.

He was already dead inside, with his son hating him, and Skyler so distant from him.

but he got what he deserved...

I'm glad that he figured a way to get the money to his kids.

yay! so glad Walt dies and Jesse lived, it been almost impossible to have much sympathy for walt, but Jesse, really wanted to get out of it all for so long, Walt ruined him so many times.

I thought for a long time it would end with Walt winning everything only to receive a dire diagnosis on the return of the cancer at the end, cough up a lung and keel over

after seeing one or more of his family die, and I was sure he'd be the death of Jesse.

actually it feels almost too much of a happy ending for my taste!

So well written! despite the ignorance of the OP here who totally misses the whole concept of money laundering, the holes in the plot were pretty small overall, but the dialogue was always just superb, especially the ways the characters and relationships were developed in the first three seasons
