Looks like they're setting Walt up for his Tony Montana moment.

/at least until July 15th...

Can't wait... I haven't followed any of this in the off season. So does Mike come back and help Walter run the empire? He can't fill and maintain the space left by all the disruption in the cartel by himself right? The King needs muscle. No wait, I don't want to know... it will be better that way. Bring it on!

Sorkin's "The Newsroom" looks pretty good.

So....who is going to be the one to kill him? Obvious or an underdog choice?

Though it would be fun if he just leaves and moves to Canada with a crapload of money to live out his days.

Jesse? Cancer? Suicide?

All he wanted out of this deal was to set his family up for his death... and then he changed. I imagine he has one last break (to good) taking himself and his evil empire out with him, after he delivers a pallet of $100's to Skylar.

What other shows have done that besides Battlestar? Serious question. I know BSG was a mess with season 3.5, 4.5, whatever, but I thought part of that was writers' strikes. AMC I'm sure is splitting this season to maximize profits and squeeze as much interest as they can out of their hit show before the finale. Can't think of other examples.

Also, I was gonna gripe about 2 8 episode seasons, but it's better than a season that's too long and the writers can't quite fill it (Fringe season 4) or the BBC approach of 3 episodes every 2 years (Sherlock).

Last season of Walking Dead.

No point in speculating what is going to go down. All i know is I'm FARKING EXCITED TO FIND OUT.

Walt has to be the most likable villain of all time. I still want him to win, whatever that may mean for him.

/It might mean Skylar lives, which would be totally unfortunate

Right. So far everyone has had one change... to the bad. The series has been a little too intelligent to finish on that kind of note. People change for the worse, no one changes for the better... a message we already knew.

I disagree. Jesse has changed for the better. He's more loyal than anyone, almost to a fault. He always tries to do the right thing given his situation. Walt tries to do the most advantageous thing. Very different.

Very good point... Jesse has change for the better, but maybe not for the good? Walter is poisoned by his ego. I don't think that ego is necessarily something new. He just gets to indulge it more freely in his new life. If Jesse has changed, it was through Walter's doing. Jesse would have been eliminated previously. It was only through spite and manipulation that Gus gave Jesse his break, to antagonize Walter. I think if Walt or his disease doesn't kill him, then Jesse will... probably at Walter's own request.

Wait, the same Jessie that met his girlfriend when he was attending rehab meetings in an effort to sell drug there? That Jessie? The one who held a multi-day binge party at his house? That Jessie? The one who killed an innocent man in cold blood? That Jessie?

I'm not saying he's perfect, but he is one of the more redeemable characters on the show. You're right though, he's definitely had his up and downs in terms of doing the "right thing".

I spent the last week scouring the internet to find episodes of season 4 so I would be up to speed when Season shiat since Netflix is one year behind. I finally finished up last weekend so now I can comment in these threads without fear of spoilers!

I think he's too far gone to break back to the good. Walter is a bad man, no turning back, he's committed to winning and being in charge. That being said, his family may reap some of the ill benefits from that (i.e. Walter Jr. borrows his car and boom! or something of that nature).

Final showdown will probably be Walter vs. Hank rather than Walter vs. Jesse.

But didn't the Sopranos hiatus have something to do with Edie Falco getting breast cancer or something like that? I'm pretty sure they weren't prolonging the end of the show just for the hell of it.

You-know-who's death last week was more disturbing than anything I've seen on Walking Dead. Usually when a major character dies the most they'll do is show the body being covered up with a sheet.

Yes, farking netflix! It took me a while to get through season 1, I thought it was kind of boring. Then about half way through season 2 I really got into it. I was totally bent when I finished season 3 and netflix had no more!

Walter vs Hank would be good, the battle of good and evil.

The walking dead had that stupid mid season break during the 2nd season and lost split up their last coupld seasons as well when it could have been just one season.

Walt will kill Hank at the end of season 5.5. Season 5.5 will end up with Walt at the top of the food chain with Mike as his enforcer, but having lost everything he got into the business to protect in the first place. Skylar will have taken Walt Jr and the money and fled.

I think Mike will remain as an enemy to Walt. Whether it's through some loyalty to Gus or because he's being paid by Gus' higher-ups, I don't know.

I say Hank has a confrontation with Walt and ends up dead to wrap up the first half of the season, like you said. Walt and Jesse have some sort of showdown in the second half. I don't predict Walt surviving this series.

Well Mad Men is by far the most tame show on AMC. Between The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, and The Killing they have plenty of graphic content to go around. Makes sense they would want the death of a major character to have more weight to it than just "oh he's dead." I loved the fact they showed it, really generated that HOLY SHIAT response they were gunning for.

Still sad over that too :(. I like that character. He was great :(

Pretty sure one of the articles posted here on Fark flat out said they were going to kill off Walt in the end, but wanted to make it something amazing. Please don't let him just die of cancer. That's a cop out.

The way they did it actually managed to still surprise me a bit. The earlier scene with him had me expecting some realization on his part and everything would be okay.

I think that's all I'll discuss about it here, since it just aired and this isn't even a Mad Men thread.

That would be too easy. Mike is a Serious Bad Ass(tm) and could whack Walt any time he likes with little effort. There were conversations between Mike and both Jesse and Walt that they had a good thing going with Gus, and it would be better for everyone not to fark it up. I think Mike likes money, and Walt can provide that. As far as Mike knows, Hector figured out how to blow up Gus all on his own, and he has no idea that Walt was part of it.

The most tragic ending for Walt is that he ends up being the Meth King but completely alone and isolated. It is only by him being alive to live with the results of his actions that he falls the farthest. If he dies, well, he was gonna die anyway.

I figure either the show ends with Walt dead, but having provided for his family, or his family dead and him in charge of a meth empire.

Now that Skylar has gone bad, too, Walt jr. is the only remaining character left that is genuinely innocent. Perhaps he will figure out mom and dad are really evil people, and go on a rampage and kill them both.

I love this farking show, and I hate TV generally.
 
2012-06-05 05:58:46 PM  
I was thinking that the ending is everybody dying, aside from Walt. He just keeps going forward with the meth empire because it turns out what he really wanted was respect, prestige, and recognition. He's been getting more selfish/devious as the series goes on. Also some sort of a meet the new boss same as the old boss type of moment.

Nope, Sopranos finished exactly the same way Breaking Bad is, extra long season (16 eps), split into two, by design. Even released on DVD as season 6A and 6B.

I fully expect the cancer is going to make an appearance during the last season, if only because they really dropped it as a subplot and the writers don't tend to do that very often. They always bring it back around.

Whether it's the reason for his death or not, it will show back up.
