    This is your quote, you damn loon (and please spare me your "I know what I wrote, why are you insisting on quoting it again". It's clear you need another reading so I'm saving you some scrolling)
    If they offered him a chance to 1) live and 2) use Walt's formula to (the way Walt would see it) take credit for work that Jesse wasn't doing, I could see Walt being convinced Jesse would take it, both to save himself and to lessen Walt's legacy by removing the need for Walter as the producer.
    Your parenthetical (the way Walt would see it) seems to then trial off into what Walt is inferring about JESSE's thought process. You can't write worth fuck all if you honestly think what you wrote there after "Jesse would take it" is still referring to Walt's thoughts about himself. If you're still talking about Walt then it obviously should have read "HIS legacy and "HIMSELF as the producer". You wrote a convoluted clusterfuck and then act all shocked when it's misinterpreted. (and btw even if you are talking about Walt there it's still a mess)

    Don't worry I keep the context of the whole discussion in mind. That's precisely why your post made no sense. It's you who either did not remember what you're talking about, or had a stroke while you were typing.

    So stop fucking flailing if you're so exhausted posting in threads I post in.

    Exactly. It was one thing about the finale (besides the kind of all too convenient tying up all the loose ends [I don't really think that's as necessary in finales as other people, I still think The Sopranos was a way better ending]), if you'd really destroyed your whole life and the lives of countless others in the name of this thing you made and were so proud of... wouldn't your last thought as you were in extreme pain from being gunshot be to see what all the fuss was about?

    I like the concept but it wouldn't have worked with this ending. They clearly wanted Walt to go out on his own terms and it would have just been another stain on his legacy if he has methamphetamine in his system during the autopsy.


    Speaking of wish fulfillment, I kinda wanted Walt to end up desolving in his barrel of money.

    It seems out of character for Walt, but I would have enjoyed seeing him go out on a high note.

    Yeah I think it just didn't fit with the tone of the last 5 minutes of the show but in real life if you knew you were minutes from death and surrounded by your drug baby you'd probably just take it because really what does it matter at that point

    Walt taking meth is so completely out of character that it would have made a joke of the show. Power was Walt's drug. The meth was just the vehicle, and for him to try it is just goofy.

    Besides he knows Jesse is too well trained than to leave product lying around.

    That's a good point. Part of the fondness Walt feels in the end is seeing that Jesse learned to keep the lab pristine and "up to Heisenberg" standards.

    Exactly. I don't know what the rest of you are talking about. For me, a small part of the impact of his character was that he wasn't into doing the drug himself. As Jack said, the drug was just a vehicle for him to achieve a goal. It would be fucking stupid if he tried it before he died.

    I mean, you're all correct and it would have been really weird if he'd gotten high in the last shot of the show. On the other hand, he must have been curious and what better time to experiment with drugs than when you know you're minutes from death?

    She told them that she, and other fans most likely, has been racking her brain about how Walt got the ricin into the stevia packet in the first place -- wouldn't there be a hole? Would someone as fastidious as Lydia take notice to something off about a stevia packet?

    They said that they probably easily could have pitched a scene showing Walt in his car going through packet after packet trying to open and close it -- and that a scene such of that probably would have made it to air. Then they mentioned that if Walt could rig a machine gun up like that, he could get it into the stevia packet! They also discussed how the whole ricin thing was with them since season 2, and it became this sort of curse, like they knew someone was going to have to die from it, but they didn't know who and they didn't know how. They also discussed other times where they've written themselves into a corner and didn't know how exactly to get out of it (the "sunset" episode in the RV)

    Also of note (I only caught like 20 minutes of the interview) was that they discussed what became known as the "Tom law" in the writing room -- basically that he didn't see it fit to have characters explaining things to other characters as a way to let the audience know that a character had been made aware of a plot point. That sometimes characters should just be able to appear in a scene, already knowing something, and that the audience should just be able to assume that they've been made aware of a fact. Which I think speaks to the issue of Gomie all of a sudden being up to speed with things

    Think about it this way: at least ricin in the Stevia was better explained than how Brock was poisoned back in season 4.

    ‘BREAKING BAD’ FANS PLACE WALTER WHITE OBITUARY IN THE ALBUQUERQUE JOURNAL

    High school science teacher David Layman and other members of the “Unofficial Breaking Bad Fan Tour” Facebook group, paid for the Walter White death notice that appears on 4A in today’s Albuquerque Journal.

    “I’ve been a humongous ‘Breaking Bad’ fan since the beginning,” says Layman, who notes that he has a student named Jesse. “I was actually in the pilot, and putting the obit in the paper was fitting, because the series was based in Albuquerque and it provides some of us some closure.”

At no point in my post did I say that was Jesse's line of thinking, but rather how Walt would view it.

    You're just stung because you wrote an incoherent statement and then jumped down my throat because your fuckup was read as it was written. Go ahead and state honestly that the sentence can be objectively understood. You know you can't.
    proof-read, bro. You were the first to get nasty and then are shocked when you get spit back at? This "reading comprehension" issue is not pervasive on this board, it's not typically why I mix words with others. It's your issue, you just seem to be assuming that's why I argue with everyone because that's what you remember. You're not random in this respect.
    (and way to pull unwitting allies into your sob story btw)

    Apparently Hannibal Lecter is a fanboy

    Dear Mister Cranston.

    I wanted to write you this email - so I am contacting you through Jeremy Barber - I take it we are both represented by UTA . Great agency.

    I've just finished a marathon of watching "BREAKING BAD" - from episode one of the First Season - to the last eight episodes of the Sixth Season. [Ed note: There are in fact five seasons of Breaking Bad; this might have been wishful thinking.] (I downloaded the last season on AMAZON) A total of two weeks (addictive) viewing.

    I have never watched anything like it. Brilliant!

    Your performance as Walter White was the best acting I have seen - ever.

    I know there is so much smoke blowing and sickening bullshit in this business, and I've sort of lost belief in anything really.

    But this work of yours is spectacular - absolutely stunning. What is extraordinary, is the sheer power of everyone in the entire production. What was it? Five or six years in the making? How the producers (yourself being one of them), the writers, directors, cinematographers.... every department - casting etc. managed to keep the discipline and control from beginning to the end is (that over used word) awesome.

    From what started as a black comedy, descended into a labyrinth of blood, destruction and hell. It was like a great Jacobean, Shakespearian or Greek Tragedy.

    If you ever get a chance to - would you pass on my admiration to everyone - Anna Gunn, Dean Norris, Aaron Paul, Betsy Brandt, R.J. Mitte, Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, Steven Michael Quezada - everyone - everyone gave master classes of performance ... The list is endless.

    Thank you. That kind of work/artistry is rare, and when, once in a while, it occurs, as in this epic work, it restores confidence.

    You and all the cast are the best actors I've ever seen.

    That may sound like a good lung full of smoke blowing. But it is not. It's almost midnight out here in Malibu, and I felt compelled to write this email.

    Congratulations and my deepest respect. You are truly a great, great actor.

    Best regards

    Tony Hopkins.
