It goes without saying that "Breaking Bad's" series finale will end all endings. A perfect and artistically fitting close to one of the most talked about series thats ends up killing the show's iconic anti-hero Walter White.
"Breaking Bad's" series finale has definitley raised the bar for all series endings to come with its witty, violent, extremely tense and oddly moving, which is pretty much a "happy ending," definitive conclusion. It's straightforward, in-your-face kind of ending that leaves Walter White's family rich (now, he finally secured his family's future) and him dead, and of course, leaving Jessie alive.
What makes this climactic final hour memorable is that it leaves no loose ends, an inevitable outcome for Walter White that the show has been cooking up since Season 1. "Breaking Bad's" unique and tightly-woven narratives is what sets it apart from all other series, and its ending delivers no disappointment.
Like most TV dramas that struggled to attain its much-awaited climax, "Breaking Bad" managed to have its satisfying conclusion that HBO's "The Sopranos," "Lost" or even "Dexter" failed to deliver.
Vince Gilligan, the brain behind the show, spoke with EW about the show's conclusion. "Ours is nothing if not a definitive ending to the series," he says. "I think plenty of people out there will have had a different ending for this show in their mind's eye and therefore we're bound to disappoint a certain number of folks," he added. "But I really think I can say with confidence that we made ourselves happy and that was not remotely a sure thing for the better part of a year. I feel that the ending satisfies me and that's something that I'm happy about," he continued.
It is, indeed, a challenge to wrap up five seasons of one of TV's most daring and beloved show, the reason why the season ender should be perfect and ends with a bang. Like all good things, the show has to come to an end. "Felina," the show's 75-minute extended finale begins with Walter White as he talks to himself while stealing a snow-covered Volvo. "Just get me home," he whispered to himself.
