Just finally watched the latest episode! Great ending.
Was it just me? Or did anyone think some really awful might or could happen during the happy family scene? It just seemed all too good to be true, then when Hank when to take a dump, I thought there was going to be gunshots or something !
Hank's face is priceless at the end, but you've got to wonder why he hadn't ever put two and two together to think it might be Walt all along, what he does next is going to be fascinating, can't wait to see.
Could somebody remind me, of what exactly was the W.W. and the book about, I remember the flashback moment, but not the complete in's and outs and the full significance of that book / thesis. Why the hell was it even on the toilet anyway!
Walt is a clever guy, and if he had any sense would he really leave that lying around ? ! He'll call a hit on 9 guys, yet when his DEA brother in law comes around, leaves a very good clue in the bathroom!!! I love this show, but sometimes it irks me!
Had a great dream last night about how I want the last scene of Breaking Bad to play out...
First, let me explain how everything falls into place, in my mind, during the final 8 episodes. Hank start investigating Walt, while Walt tries to leave the business... but gets sucked back in. Eventually, he will set up a distribution center, like Gus' chicken farm, only his will be an abandoned warehouse (the one in the poster) that Declan will set him up with. Hank eventually has enough evidence to be sure Walt is Heisenberg, so he confronts Walt and tells him to get out of town... and Walt agrees to. He gets a hold of Saul's "disappearer" guy and gets relocated to New Hampshire. Walt moves, and has to deal with everything he has caused. Eventually, his cancer returns... and he is sick of living a lie, so he returns to New Mexico to go out in a hail of bullets, and let the world know he is Heisenberg... I mean, the cancer is going to get him anyway. And we all know how is pride is. Walt buys the M60 at the Denny's, and then sets it up in desert to practice with it (this is how the opening scene of that last episode will be, Walt reading the owner's manual and shooting the M60 out in the middle of nowhere to get a feel for it.) The last scene will be Walt setting up the abandoned warehouse, the one Declan sets up or him as the distribution center. He mounts the machine gun in one of the windows on the upper level. He then sits on a lawnchair (his throne) and calls Hank and tells him to send the DEA to his location, or he will tell everyone that Hank accepted drug money for his medical bills, thus ruining his career.
As Walt is waiting for the DEA to arrive, "Hurt" By Johnny Cash is playing. Just listen to the lyrics... goes so well with the show:
As the song is playing, Walt is still sitting in the lawn chair as the camera slowly pans around him. He films his last testamony, to his family and all that he has hurt. Kind of like in the pilot episode, but now he is for real going to have last stand with the police. After he is done, he puts the camera down and places the porkpie hat on his head, as the DEA pull up. Hank gets out of the car and gets on the megaphone to plead with Walt just to give up, and come quietly. Walt stands up, and walks over to the window and observes all the DEA, as well as the APD. Near the last chorus of the song, Walt gets into a prone position and starts firing at everyone. The music stops for a bit as Walt is shooting. Walt takes out several agents, Hank is hiding under an SUV. Everyone else is opening fire at the window. After about a dozen deaths, Walt is finally killed... gone in a hail of bullets. The music starts playing again as it pans around Walt's body... and the whole scene in general. The last shot is of Walt's hat, now on the ground after he dropped, being blown out of the window by the wind and carried away. Symbolic.
Just thought I'd share this with you guys. One of the most vivid dreams I've ever had, and I personally wouldn't mind the show to end like this. However the writers do it though, I know I will be satisfied.

^ It definitely could play out something like that. But I don't think Hank will take it lightly that Walt is Heisenberg and tell him to leave town. As we all know Hank is obsessed with the blue meth investigation and catching Heisenberg has been his goal for a long time. I'm thinking a fist fight between the two or Hank pointing a gun to his head or something, only to let him live and THEN leave town.
By the way. A GREAT way for Jesse to figure out what happened to Brock/Jane/Mike would be this. Jesse is sitting in his sofa, smoking some weed, he watches the "Roomba" swivel around in his living room and he notices a cigarette on the floor. The Roomba is about to pick it up but hold up...! The cigarette does not get sucked in. Jesse is stunned and pulls out a few more cigarettes and tosses 'em out around the floor. None of the cigarettes gets sucked in. After that Jesse slowly suspects Walter. After all, Walt is a smart guy and knows his stuff so he could easily found a way to poison him.
This could be the first sign which makes Jesse starting to suspect Walter for some of the things Jesse still hasn't learned.
Near the last chorus of the song, Walt gets into a prone position and starts firing at everyone. The music stops for a bit as Walt is shooting.
I think it would be very poignant if the music got louder and the gunfire sounds faded to mute. No sound, but just the visual of Walt screaming as he's emptying shells onto the floor while getting taken out, with just that song playing the final verse/chorus would give me goosebumps.

@GTA-King: I like the tie-ins with the first episode and the video camera. This would be very Scarface-esque too, which has had influence in the past on the show. The only thing I'm stuck on his Hank allowing Walt to go into hiding. In fact I'd be a little suprised to even see Hank confront him face-to-face. I think Hank might be too honest of a guy and handle the situation much differently. Then again, Hank has gone through a lot in the past 1+ years and I guess it wouldn't totally surprise me to see him act the way you described.
@Vormek: That would be a very clever way! I kind of lost the whole situation of Jesse finding about Brock and Jane in the back of my mind after all that's happened this season. Not to mention finding out about Mike too, there's gonna to be some exciting things to see in the final 8 episodes besides Hank vs. Walt. Knowing how egotistical Walt is, it wouldn't surprise me to see him just blurt out that he killed all three of them and then say something like "what are you gonna do about it?" For instance, if Jesse found out about Brock's death like you said, Walt might just be like "and I let Jane die and killed Mike too!" It will definitely be interesting to see the final story of Jesse and Walt next summer!
So I think the couple of most probable ways Walt could die is cancer, big gun battle (DEA or some criminals), Jesse or Hank, and maybe the ricin? Wouldn't it be crazy if Jesse was the one to kill Walt with the ricin because he poisoned Brock with it and also because he tried to make Jesse use it on Gus?
I got a question for everyone, who do you think will die in the final 8 episodes? I think most people figure Walt will, but do we see Jesse, Hank, Marie, Skyler, Walt Jr., Holly, Saul, or any others die? For some reason I think someone in Walt's family is going to die, but we'll see. I'm hoping Jesse gets away home free and survives these crazy two years.
GTA-King, let me tell you... if the show ended like that i would be well pleased. This show really needs a dramatic and violent ending like this to give some closure to all the tension and crazy stuff that happened. If he were to get poisoned or something it wouldn't be satisfying, it would be an anti-climax.
Yeah, in that last scene, in the backyard, i certainly felt it. I kept looking at the background, just waiting for someone to come around the corner. Or climb the neighbour's wall. Yeah i was almost certain of this, lmao.
@ ajbns87: That book was given to him by Gale (Boetticher, G.B.) when they worked together. It's a bundle of Walt Whitman. When he got killed, Hank got a copy of Gale's notebook which had the same message and W.W. initials in it. That's the flashback, where Walt 'convinced' Hank W.W. stood for Walt Whitman. It's even the same handwriting. Need i say more?
I really don't think Hank will try and arrest Walt. It would blow back in his face too hard. He would have to arrest Skyler as well, because she was an accomplice. Also, Hank would lose his job because Walt was right under his nose all along. Not to mention he will be in major debt since Walt paid for his medical bills with drug money.
Just doesn't seem like Hank would turn in a family member. He didn't turn in Marie for shoplifting. I think Hank is going to gather enough evidence to make sure Walt is Heisenberg and then he will tell him to leave town once he has enough. I'm most likely totally wrong, but nonetheless, I can't wait to see how it all plays out.
