Best finale in television history
29 September 2013 | by royalewithcheese2020See all my reviews

Whether the finale made everyone happy or not, it doesn't really matter. If this episode didn't move you're emotions, then you didn't watch the series close enough. It was a hell of a fitting ending for this series, and a spectacular one at that. If you have been watching this show for at least the last year, this episode is what all breaking bad fans could have wished for in a finale. It's not a sopranos ending when you have to make your own interpretation. Every loose end is tied up like expected. Yes, it was somewhat predictable,but the execution was marvelous and it was emotional, for me, how it ended. These guys obviously aren't getting off easy. They have been put through more heartache and disaster than just about any average human being could bear. That's what is so great about the series though. It takes two realistic, average characters and transforms them into totally different people. Just goes to show what comes with choosing a life where you are hurting others and making bad decisions. Walt and Jesse are shells of the people they once were, the unique personalities they once had, and the families and ones they loved that they lost. Whether they evade the cops or not, Walt and Jesse are dead on the inside. But there is still a little moral victory left to happen.
