:this isn't my post but i guess i'll defend it anyway since it's like ritual for me to do this anyway. ugh i hated the end "everything is a fairytale. jesse is okay with mike being killed. all the jailed guys are dead. lydia is cool! walt is out! walter jr lotions is baby sister's porcelain skin! skyler has a few lines which make her less of an insufferable cunt but oh god when the close up went to her and she tried to smirk at walt at the pool party! disgusting! but OH NO hank has to DO A POOP and it's HARMLESS but then he needs to READ and what does he FIND? WALTER WHITMENAS'S DIARIES OH MY GOOOOOOOOD CLIFFHANGER
the finale had a very odd time span, the episode went over the course of three months. in that time walter made his millions and skyler wanted her family back. walt finally had something in his life again and he wasn't empty anymore. i thought it was nice
fuck right the fuck off. it wasn't climatic it was predictable as shit and it was the laziest thing thus far in this season, being beat by "uh similar situations in which hank has hit a breakthrough/dead end in one of his HEISENBERG CASES, then at a dinner party walter gives him FOOD FOR THOUGHT which HINTS HE MIGHT BE A GENIUS METH COOK but /nope/" for the top spot of the entire series. honestly if i were hank i would have suspected walter until around season 3 for these reasons:
stuff stolen from chemistry lab
the odd behavior from walt
the fact that the meth is so fucking pure. seriously walter is a fucking nobel prize winning chemist. really?
hank has fucking minerals for brains dude
what do you mean it was predictable? we all know the direction the show is going to head in and but we just don't know the steps it will take to get there, to complain about predictability is bizarre.
i guess it's poetic, heehheehhehe get it because walt whitman, because he was so meticulous in covering up, it was the smallest detail that will be his eventual downfall. i don't really think it was that lazy, they were setting it up for most of the season. the book was shown with walt when he moved back to his house at the start and it was in the last episodes. i like the possibilities the finale set up. how is hank going to get walt, now that he has made that connection. is he going go right out to the dinner party and start fucking shit up or we will he start building a case and analysing shit. i thought it was neat, i cannot wait for the rest of that party scene because it will be amazing.
you're only complaining about hank not noticing because you already know that walt is a meth cook and that everything he does is because of that. it's obvious to you but if you didn't know, you wouldn't think anything of it. hank doesn't know walt is a meth cook and he wouldn't have any real reason to suspect him at that point. hank has always known walt as a bumbling beta that has cancer, his strange behaviour can be attributed to that. the stolen lab equipment was trivial at the time and by now would have been far at the back of everyone's mind. gale boettica was a degree level chemist who decided to make meth and no one would have suspected him, it's easy to assume there is just another person like gale out there making meth. having a chemistry degree doesn't instantly make you a meth cook
since when is being able to predict something from eons away "good"?
the show is called breaking bad and mr gilligan has stated that season 5 is about walts downfall. what do you expect. the show isn't really about what epic tweezt will happen next time
this season was fucking trash compared to the rest. boring, filled with unnecessary skyler + marie scenes and contradicting character developments (i am still not nor will i ever be over the complete idiocy of mike's death despite someone giving the reason "this shows walt can kill just because he can" because the events leading up to it were retarded and unjustifiable). if walt is supposed to be this cold hearted badass who orchestrates and calls for the killing of 12 men without even flinching why the fuck would he give two shits about gale?
i feel the only reason mike died was because he needed to die not because the show was leading to his death, if that is coherent. i didn't like it either. however, i did like the skyler/marie scenes. they showed the affect that walt's choices have had. even at that, i don't understand the hate for skyler. if anything, walt is the one who should be getting the hate for practically forcing his family through everything
because walt isn't a plain cut cold badass villain, he does care about gale. gale saw him as a friend or at least something similar, hence the book and hence why walt kept it. the cold killing badass is just a front used by walt because he thinks it is how he is meant to act. he has only seen how druglords act from watching movies like scarface and tries to replicate it. tuco even says to him something like 'you watch to many movies'.
please don't tell me he forgot because throughout the entire series he's been so calculated and smart. who the fuck leaves a book from a former partner in an illegal drug empire lying around in the guest bathroom?
walter white does. he didn't forget he had it, he specifically took it with him. he probably keeps it as a memento because i doubt walt keeps it as a trophy. or he just really likes walt whitman. walt thought he had tied up every loose end
and if someone else starts going on about the symbolism in this series
the only thing that grinds my gears about breaking bad is that everyone assumes everything is symbolism for something. like there's probably some fuck out there right now writing about how the fly walt was staring at represents the depth walt has struck because flies are pests deep in shit or something. i don't fucking know. fuck
though, they are just my interpretations. i didn't have any problem with the finale and i am excited as fuck for the return. the entire thing isn't 2d. i bet you're only this mad because that spoiler guy from /tv/ was wrong about skyler getting choked by walt
