"Breaking Bad" has ended and Walter White (Bryan Cranston) is dead, too. The most awaited series finale of this year provided an end that is perfect and right. But, it is an end that does not spark a debate or make one think about it for a long time. "Breaking Bad" Series Finale, "Felina," killed all the loose cannons and neatly tied-up all the loose ends. The mild-mannered Chemistry teacher finally did it for the family -- as he had intended to do, originally -- and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul). Walt had made Jesse the target and in the final episode of "Breaking Bad," he helped him escape the fatal fate. Also, Jesse gets to kill Todd. It is kind of a happy ending.
Sitting in a snow-clad car, Walt is almost praying: "Just get me home ... Just get me home. I'll do the rest." He drives away from New Hampshire, safely without the policemen or DEA agents spotting or arresting him. The inscription on the car plate reads "Live Free or Die."
Walt stops at a gas station to get the tank of his car full. He also makes a call as a reporter of New York Times to find the new address of his former friends and business-partners, Elliot (Adam Godley) and Gretchen (Jessica Hecht). Walt tells the person on the phone, "This will make one hell of a story."
When Elliot and Gretchen reach their home, Walt is already present there. They don't notice him while having their sweet couple talk. Walt takes a look at their new, lavish home, every corner of which scream that the owners are over-loaded with money.
Gretchen notices Walt. She screams and thinks that he is there to hurt them. Elliot joins her and shows Walt the knife. Walt tells Elliot that he will need a bigger knife if things are going to go that way.
Walt tells the wife-husband duo that he is there to give them something and that they need to walk with him to the car. The blood money is in the car's trunk. The three bring the money inside the house and arrange the bundles on the table in the living room of Gretchen and Elliot. Walt tells them that the total amount is: 9 Million, 7 hundred, 20 thousand dollars.
Walt tells Elliot and Gretchen that he wants them to give the money to his son in the form of an irrevocable trust on his 18th birthday, which is 10 months and two days away.
"It is his to do with as he sees fit. But with the hope that he uses it for his college education and for the betterment of his family."
The husband and wife want to know why Walt hadn't done it himself. The answer: Walt's sone and wife hates him and won't accept the money. Even the federal government won't let them take it. However, they will take the money from Elliot and Gretchen because no one will suspect a thing given both Elliot and Gretchen are known for their charity work.
Walt also warns them against using their own money in paying lawyers or settling related issues -- "Use my money and never yours." Also, Walt tells Elliot and Gretchen that he has hired two of the best hit-men and if for any reason his children don't get the money, a kind of countdown will begin. Two red, target lights are on them.
It turns out that there were simple lights and Walt has taken the help of Jesse's friends to scare Elliot and Gretchen. Walt asks the two friends if Blue meth is being still sold and when they say yes, Walt figures out that it's Jesse who is cooking it. Jesse is still being held as a hostage. Has been kept in chains and is cooking crystal meth for Todd (Jesse Plemons).
Walt visits the desert, the spot where Jake (Michael Bowen) and his Nazi men buried Hank (Dean Norris) and Steven (Steven Quezada). He fixes a gun, transforming it into an automatic device.
Marie (Betsy Brandt) calls up her sister Skyler (Anna Gunn) to inform that Walt is in the town and he has been spotted at various places. She tells Skyler that there are three possible places where he may go - to Skyler's place, to Marie's and to Walt Jr. high school.
Walt is already there at Skyler's place where she has given him five minutes to say whatever he wants to say. Her big question: "You didn't kill anybody, sneaking here. Did you? You didn't hurt anybody." Walt says, "Didn't have to."
Skyler: "You look terrible." Walt: "But, I feel good."
Walt says to Skyler that "its over" and he needed to say a proper goodbye unlike the last phone call. Walt tells her to tell the police that he forced his way in and to tell them that he wanted bacon and eggs on his birthday. He also gives her the lotto ticket, the numbers of which are GPS coordinates to a burial site and that is where DEA agents will find Hank and Steven Gomez. Walt asks Skyler to get a deal with the prosecutor by giving the ticket and to get herself out of the mess.
"All the things I did. You need to understand ... I did it for me. I liked it. I was good at it. And, I was really ... I was alive," Walt tells her and closes his eyes. He leaves the house after caressing his daughter, and later watches Walt Jr. come out of the school bus and go inside the house.
Lydia and Todd are having their conversation in a restaurant and Walt joins them. He tells them that he has come-up with a new technique to cook crystal meth. Lydia and Todd don't want to do business with him, anymore.
Walt reaches Jack's place. Todd tells him: "you really should not have come back, Mr White." Jack makes fun of Walt's hair and tells him that they are not really into the business, and have no interest in his idea. Jack's men put a gun on Walt's head. Walt calls Jack a liar and that he owes him -- Jesse Pinkman. Walt screams that Jack promised that he would kill Jesse, but, he did not. He tells Jack that Jesse has become his partner and is cooking for them.
Todd brings a chained Jesse from the meth lab. Jack tells Walt that Jesse is just alive and he being alive does not mean that they are partners.
"Take a look, does he look like a partner to you," Jack says to Walt.
Walt tackles Jesse and both of them fall down on the ground, Walt is on top of Jesse. Walt presses the car's key and the trunk of his car opens, revealing the automatic machine gun. It is bloodbath and all the Jack's men are killed. Todd is still alive and Jesse chokes him to death using the chain, and takes the key out of dead Todd's pocket. Jesse frees himself. Walt kills a still breathing Jack, without giving him a chance to tell where he has kept Walt's money.
Walt and Jesse come face to face with each other. Walt pushes the gun towards Jesse. Jesse picks it up and points at Walt.
"Do it. You want this," Walt tells Jesse.
"... say you want this. Nothing happens until I hear you say it," Jesse says.
"I want this," Walt says. Jesse sees the blood on Walt's shirt and guesses that he has been hit, too.
"Then do it yourself," Jesse tells Walt and puts the gun down and walks outside.
Lydia calls up on Todd's phone to know if Walt is gone. Walt picks up the phone. "He is gone, they're all gone," Walt tells her. He also informs her that he has put ricin in her tea.
For the one last time, Walt and Jesse look at each other and Walt slightly nods his head. Jesse drives away in a car and lets out a cry of relief. Walt walks towards the meth lab and takes a final look and collapses.
Police arrive, only to find a dead Walter White.
The End of "Breaking Bad."
