Lily of the Valley: This Week on Breaking Bad (Episode 16 / September 29, 2013)

Sep. 30, 2013by: J.A. Hamilton

NOTE: Join us every MONDAY as we review the latest episode...

EPISODE 16: Felina

THE HOOK:

The beginning of the end. Walt leaves his empire behind to live life, while Jesse’s alive, but dying on the inside. And then there’s Hank, whose gunning for the King. One wrong move could mean life or death, and at this point, it’s still anyone’s game.

THE LOWDOWN:

(The following column contains MAJOR SPOILERS, so I don't recommend reading this if you haven't watched this episode). Seeing a show you love come to an end is always bitter sweet, but I’ve never really given it much thought until now. For me, it was usually the bitter end of things as I got to know a show that simply ended (Dark Shadows, Kindred the Embraced, Blade: The Series, yes, I tend to like the ugly ducklings), but then we move on to shows like The Sopranos, Lost, The Wire, Entourage, 24 and Dexter, shows I really enjoyed, and that’s where the mixed emotions sprouted up. For the most part, the final season becomes atrociously evident in the script, forcing the overall magic and fun factor to evaporate—case in point, Dexter. Ugh. That was punch to the sack hard enough to almost make you wish you were neutered. Vince Gilligan understands this pain, and as a result, put forth a finale of pure brilliance that will forever keep this show in our hearts. I tip my Heisenberg hat to you, sir, and to your ensemble cast. Now let’s dive in, shall we?

How awesome was it to see Walt snag the Schwartz’ address and actually be there waiting for them when they got home? I have to admit that I had no idea how that meeting was going down, I didn’t think he was going to kill them, but to have them act as the bridge between his money and his family was pure genius. I loved it. I was a little thrown when he turned to leave, seemingly trusting their word with a handshake, but then two red dots popped up and I was intrigued. I had no idea how he was pulling that off. What a way to cut Badger and Skinny Pete in on the action! Again, loved it. It was all very poetic and played in with these characters so nicely—that said, I have to wonder how Walt found those two so easily, but I’m willing to overlook it in light of sheer awesomeness.

Dropping in on Lydia and Todd was all kinds of hilarious. The look on their faces was priceless, but beyond that, they should have known better. A massive warning siren should have sounded in their heads, but the fact that they underestimate Walt, yet again, made it all the sweeter. I still have no clue what Uncle Jack was thinking back in the desert when he actually let Walt go. Why in God’s name he thought Walt would let things slide is beyond me. That certainly bit him in the ass, now didn’t it? The showdown between Walt and Uncle Jack was quick, but it made sense and was oh, so rewarding, down to the final shot to head. The scenario with him and Jesse worked out the way I figured it would, Walt saves Jesse, and Jesse goes free, but not before having the opportunity to kill Walt. I knew he wouldn’t do it. He could’ve, and no doubt part of him really wanted to, but Jesse had seen enough at this point and just wanted it to be over. I’m glad he got out, but I wish he had a barrel or two of money in the trunk with him. At least he got to take out Todd. That neck snap was a beautiful sound, almost as beautiful as Lydia’s final phone call. I laughed so hard I almost cried.


BREAKING BAD'S SERIES FINALE plays out like the climax of a great story should, and though it may not end exactly the way we all wanted it to (call me cynical, but I wanted Walt to live), it did so with a sense of grace and dignity that we can all be proud of. It was beyond moving to see Walt admit to Skyler that he did it all for him. What a scene. Regardless of what she think of the guy at this point, he did originally get into it for them, but power corrupts, and Heisenberg became a god amongst men—in Walt’s mind anyway, and he loved every second of it. Nothing tugged on the old heartstrings harder than seeing him say goodbye to Holly, and then watching Walt Jr. from afar. That’s the one character I truly feel sorry for. He didn’t get closure, hell, he barely got any truth. He’ll need that money for intense therapy down the road. As for the great Heisenberg, I’m glad he died saving Jesse. He didn’t expect to live past that night anyway, so it was nice to see that bond they once shared surface at the right moment. It worked for me. Seeing him do that final walkabout the meth lab reinforces what he told Skyler, he was never more alive than he was as his alter ego, Heisenberg, you could see it in his eyes. But at least he died in peace, knowing that he’d accomplished (more or less) what he set out to do. Again, hat’s off to Vince, his crew, the other writers and especially the cast for bringing us five seasons of epic television that will be sorely missed and damn near impossible to replace. Farewell Breaking Bad, we’ll never forget that special love we shared for our baby blue.


DRUG RELATED PROTIP:

Sometimes all you need is a bigass gun...wired to your car remote.

BEST LINE:

There was more than one, but I loved when Elliott came at Walt with that small knife and Walt says: “Elliott, if we’re gonna go that way, you’re gonna need a bigger knife.”

BITCH-O-METER:

Jesse got his revenge bitch!

COOLEST SCENE:

The entire episode was one huge cool scene, but that’d be copout so I’ll go with the whole bit at the house with Elliott and Gretchen. I honestly had no clue how Walt was going to get his family that money (or if he would at all), but seeing it unfold the way it did was beyond gratifying.

So fucking sad to see Breaking Bad come to an end. This ending seriously made my eye swell with tears. I really can't think of a TV series that ever did that to me. Oh well, at least we still got Game of Thrones.

Bang on

This show proved it can be done right, and lived up to my expectations. Sad to see it gone. And as for the spin-off, it's doomed to live in this show's shadow so I don't even know why they're bothering with it.

That's why Better Call Saul is said to be more comedic than BB-- so as to avoid straight-on comparisons. I look forward to it, and except to see a pre-coooking Walt cameo, maybe during when Saul gets a car wash or something.

Only good thing about this show ending...

Is that this article will be over. Why is every week, "I knew this would happen." or "I think this should have happened." Whatever happened to just taking the episode as is reflecting upon it??

These articles are supposed to be the writer's opinion, hence "I knew this would happen" and "I think this will happen". If everyone simply reflected upon the same things, they're would be no diversity.

I was really hoping him and jesse might at least have a moment .... you know where Jesse was less bitch lol but alas. Also am I the only one that thought at the end Walt might finally hit his own product haha how awesome would that have been.

Sad/Happy/Elated/Deflated...

I'm happy the way it ended, but honestly, the fact that it ended the way I as a fan, wanted it to end; well, I still don't know how I feel about that. That sounds stupid, but getting what I wanted (Nazis being blown the fuck away, Lydia's death by Stevia, a bit of revenge on Gray Matter, the return of Badger & Skinny Pete, Jesse killing Todd) maybe wasn't exactly what I wanted. Other than the laser-scoped "hit-men," there were really no shocking surprises, which is kind of what I loved about

That really is nit-picking, as I'll be Netflixing the show for as long as it stays on Netflix. I can't really afford that awesome Collector's Edition, or else that would be sitting on my shelf for the rest of my days.

I'm a pretty tough critic of TV Show finales, I think it's the hardest part of writing a TV Show. It's tough to wrap up every story/plotline from the entire show and add that extra bit of commentary on what the whole story really meant. Most shows fail at this, i.e. Dexter, Lost. But Breaking Bad absolutely excelled! I thought the entire show has been amazing and it would be difficult to wrap it up and play tribute to the meaning of this story at the same time. But they managed to wrap up

But they managed to wrap up every plotline for better or worse. I was curious how things would end between Walt and Jesse, I think it played out pefectly given the circumstances. And seeing Walt get his revenge on everyone was amazing, as well as his plan to get what's left of the money back to his family (even in death, he's still one step ahead of everyone else). Most of all, the scene with Skylar and seeing Walt finally admit that he was in it for himself was great, he finally admitted it to himself and gave closure to his wife. This was such an amazing show and I'm glad Gilligan and Co. pulled together a fitting finale that let them go out on a high note! It will be a long while before there's another show of this calibre on TV.

I can't complain because it is the last episode of my favorite show. It would be dishonorable to complain. I loved it, but it kinda depresses me it is over. No more sitting with friends talking about it. No more Breaking Bad nights at my house. I look back at all the adventures we all went through with Walt and Jesse. It kinda hurts...

Couldn't have really asked for a more perfect ending for the show. There weren't too many surprises in the mix, which was a tad disappointing. I love the surprises that BB always had in store. But as far as closure goes, there was nothing left. Everyone got whatever justifications they had coming to them. I do have to wonder what's going to happen to Jesse, considering his part in everything that happened throughout the show, but I guess we can think the best for him. As for Walt, I am glad to

As for Walt, I am glad to see he accepted his fate. It was depressing seeing him go through all the motions in the episode, as he seemed to already know his fate. But I can't complain. I think we all knew he would either end up dead or in handcuffs, and death always seemed more appropriate as that's the only way I think Heisenberg would go down. But this has certainly been one of the best series finales I have ever seen. No tricks, no twists, just a straight forward end to a great show. And it will most definitely remain one of the best series I've ever seen.

Touché Vince and cast

This was a finale fit for kings. Walt finally "redeemed" himself for everything. And was able to take care of all the loose ends. The captain went down with his ship. Perfect.

Ps. Best scene was Walt and Skylar. Took balls to admit was he did. Great scene.

I didnt think there was anything in here that was knock your socks off surprising - Walt said his goodbyes to those we knew hed say goodbye to and eliminated those we knew would be eliminated. But as with BB, the style and the method of how it was carried out was beautiful, and no questions were left unanswered. A perfect ending to a perfect show. Finally a finale where it seems everyone who loved the show was left satisfied.

Thw scene that hit me hardest was when we finally see Jesse making that wooden box. To Vince and his writers... that was a great throw back and the perfect way to put the viewer in Jesse's shoes for the last time.PERFECT! He was so proud in the end of that scene, Aaron Paul does a great job expressing emotions through his eyes,

I loved that machine gun scene. It would have been a lot more satisfying if he spat at Uncle Jack or at least insulted him. Overall the episode had very good closure.

I wonder though if Walt felt guilty about what he put Jesse through or if he still hates him.

Nah man. How Walt shot him was perfect. Jack was lucky enough for Walt to allow him to have a cigarette. Walt doesn't need a one liner, he's not an 80s action hero.

When Walt shot him, Jack didn't even get to finish what he was saying. His head was blown off in mid sentence. It mirrored Hank's execution. Instead of cutting away like in Hank's death, and hearing the gunshot, we see the blood spray and literally coat the lens of the camera. That was much more satisfying to me.

When Walt started approaching Jack with the gun, I was expecting him to say something. Not a one-liner, but just something to stick it to Jack that Walt wins and he loses, that he would never be as smart as Heisenbeg and he was stupid to think he is. But then after Walt just shoots him, I realized that's much more Walt than anything - let actions speak louder than words.

Sorry I probably shouldn't have said one-liner. I didn't mean he should say something cheesy like "he's dead tired" but something more along the lines of what Walt said to Tuco before he tried to kill him at his house.

I like that analysis MartyMcDoc, it seems more poetic when I look at it like that.

Finally, a series finale that has closure!!

There was no cop out fade to black, he didn't become a lumberjack, he died. Jesse survives it actually tied up 90% of the loose ends. This has to be the best series finale in a long time. I too started with Netflix and it actually took me until the middle of season 2 to get hooked, once I was I binge watched the hell out of this show. Sadly nothing will ever live up to this show and Vince Gilligans next show sounds horrible.

Yes! Couldn't agree more, it's soooo nice to actually see closure. I don't ever want to see a main character's final fate be that of them running away to be a lumberjack ever again (unless they come up with some kinda badass lumberjack show, or they actually re-do x-men origins wolverine right and focus on him fighting in every major American war only to find peace at the end trying to be a lumberjack...until some new threat comes calling).

Boring? I disagree. There was enough tension throughout to keep me interested. I never believed that Walt would just walk away, and was waiting for the "gun under the table," in this case snipers outside the window. It had plenty of suspense, considering Walt's ego and how he would have been offended by Elliot completely disowning his involvement in the company. It was a surprise to learn he used those two for a rational purpose (getting money to his son), and the "snipers" added to the

To anyone curious why Walt didn't destroy the meth lab in any way leading up to his death; It's because it's the one thing he was incredibly proud of. That was HIS lab equipment Uncle Jack had and putting his "red" bloody hand on it signified that all of this was HIS legacy. Not anyone else's.

The lab got a greater goodbye than his family did.

I think Gilligan's directing was great. He established so much tension in the Schwartz household scene. Or the shot with the pillar in the foreground as Skyler and Walt talked, emphasizing the wall between them. I do think he kinda copped out with each of the characters fate, and yet I completely don't mind. He gave every character what they deserve and what the audience wanted for them. Even down to Marie trying to patch things up with Skyler. I'm completely satisfied with the conclusion

Nice to see things all wrapped up and Walt never forgetting his original goals and never truly being outplayed or taken down by anyone one but himself

I'm glad there was good to honest closure few shows often get to have that anymore as their cancelled before their time or just run out of gas...I would've liked to know what happened to Saul but on the other hand I kind of not knowing..then again it was never really his story to begin with, hopefully he's happy managing a Cinnabon.

Favorite Baddest Moment...Season 2 episode. 10 When Walt approaches the other cooks in the Home Depot parking lot and growls at them to "Stay out of my

There were a few predictable elements to the episode maybe, sure, but it was still an amazing finale for the show. The whole Gretchen/Elliott/"hitmen" situation was just too awesome (including the absolutely perfect Skinny Pete and Badger cameo). And Walt was a complete badass, finally admitting a few crucial things to himself and others and going out in huge style.

Fuck yes

What a perfect ending, Walt more badass than ever, goes out on his own terms. Jesse gets the revenge he wanted, gets to live. All loose ends tied up, none of that fade to black ambiguous bullshit. Yeah, perfect.
