So "Need for Speed" is a sequel to Breaking Bad?

I thought it was pretty awesome. Except I'm not sure about the way Walt died. Did he mean to get shot there and die that way?

I thought it was a satisfying ending. Nothing way out there, and everyone got a fitting end.

I think Walt meant for Jesse to kill him.

No. Wanted Jesse to kill him.

Really can't see how anyone could be disappointed with that finale.

I don't think he meant to get shot like that. I think the plan was to have the bullets take everyone out, including him. However, when Jesse was there, he wanted to have him live, so he tackled him to save him.

I'm ok with the ending, but that was far and away the most predictable episode of the series.

I think he planned on Jesse being there by bringing him up.

Also how did Walt take a bullet? It was sprayed perfectly in a straight line, and weren't they below the line the whole time?

Guess he wanted to kill him as well, until he saw what condition he was in.

I'm fine with that. I feel like if they tried to go for some crazy twist it would have felt forced.

This just feels right to me.

Yeah, I think if certain things happened it wouldn't have made sense for the show. Walt had to die. Jesse, I think, had to live. The nazis had to go.

Where is the $70 million!

I thought it was good mostly because they pulled no punches all of season 5b. A few things needed tied up but i loved how he took out Lydia and how Jesse killed Todd. I was surprised it was ALL tied up but it seemed this series needed a final ending more than others. Being based on this dying guy who broke bad and all they went through it needed a finale no matter what, whether it was him winning or even the nazis.

I was also pumped that Badger and Skinny Pete got something out if it and were in the final episode.

I'm not blown away, but that's the nature of finale's, I think. I'll enjoy it more when I re-watch season 5 and strip out the expectation. The only specific complaint I have is that Jesse driving away like the chick at the end of Texas Chainsaw Massacre wasnt enough of an ending. I have no idea what's next for that character, and I feel like we deserve to know.

It didn't leave me sitting there staring at the screen going "WTF just happened? That can't be the end... right?" like the Sopranos.
It didn't leave me questioning why I ever watched the show like Lost.
Don't really feel like a montage ala the Wire was warranted here.
Pretty much everything was wrapped up in a sensible, if predictable way.

That is a win in my books.

Jesse doesn't know what's next either, so why should we? I think we're just supposed to revel in the newfound, unexpected freedom, while dreaming about life's possibilities moving forward, just like Jesse is doing.

So we'll take his enthusiasm as clarity and not madness? I don't think it should be ambiguous. Maybe it wasn't meant to be, I suppose.

I took it as someone who thought they were going to spend the rest of their life, who knows how short it may be, in meth cooking servitude unexpectedly going free. So yea, I guess clarity and not madness.

I think it was both. Relief that it was finally over combined with the madness of all that were hurt because of him. While he can blame Walt for certain things he still pulled his gf back into heroin and so forth.

But yes either was it was a bit ambiguous. And probably on purpose.
