Also an on site meth lab and probably ~100 million dollars on hand. It looked like there was a main street and several houses/buildings, which makes sense since there was about 8 people living on the site. What did people driving by think this place was?

That's not a plot hole, either. Maybe poor writing on JK Rowling's part, but it isn't a plot hole. A plot hole is more like.... how does the T-rex get inside the visitor's center in Jurassic Park? Or, how does Jeff Goldblum plug his Macbook into the alien spacecraft in Independence Day?
And what happens to characters beyond the scope of the narrative cannot be called a plot hole, either, because the show ended and there is - by definition - no more plot.

He's broke and he's tide to one of the largest meth rings in the world. Unfortunately I don't think there is a happy ending for him as far as his freedom is concerned. Maybe a decent lawyer and a sympathetic jury get him off. I think the important thing is that Jesse has begun to heal emotionally. It will be a long road for him but I think we are given hope that he can live the rest of his life. Before his release I think he would have taken suicide as his best option.

I hated the fly episode while watching it for the first time... I kept thinking, "Is this really what the entire episode is going to be about?" When I watched it again though it wasn't nearly as bad. Actually it became one of my favorites during the second viewing. It was a very nice change of pace in the middle of a crazy season (compared to the season before anyways).

Without anxiously wondering what's going to happen next, it's easier to notice details, forshadowing, music lyrics, etc. Because of this, episodes that were average or worse the first time can be great the second time, and vice-versa.

Feels very much resolved, as is, but thought for sure that there would be some sort of finish like that.
Once Walt went into hiding we were forced into his isolation. The only things we knew, the only events we saw, were experienced by Walt.
There was a lot that happened that Walt didn't know about. I don't think he knew about the hit that Lydia put on his wife or the entire Jesse vs. Todd storyline. I don't think he knew Jessie was alive until Charlie Rose told him that there was still blue meth on the streets, and in Prague, which is probably how he knew it was Todd & Lydia.
I'm speaking more from the time jump. We see what is going on with everyone until we get to Walt in the cabin paying Robert Forster 10 grand to spend an hour with him. Jesse the cook-slave, the threat on Skyler and the kids, etc. are the last things we experience independent of Walt. After that, we have newspaper clippings on the cabin wall and family info provided to us (Walt) from Forster. His phone call to Junior, the Charlie Rose interview (where he learns some info that we know but he doesn't), and the long trek back to ABQ are the re-introduction into the world after the months Walt spent in the cabin. The entire final episode is 100% Walt dependent. Even Marie's last scene only occurs because Walt is in the room with Skyler during the phone call. I think some kind of montage or epilogue would have been nice, but they chose to go another way. The story of Breaking Bad dies with Walter White.
