    It was good. The best episode was still probably 'Ozymandias' (3rd to last) but the final episode had everything it needed. Wasn't OTT but rounded everything off well. I think a lot of stuff was implied, like we all knew what Walt was thinking at certain points.

    Good ending, like Zzonked said they didn't go OTT and I think that's what they wanted. Probably the only way it could have ended without disappointing someone people.

    I just wished they'd explained the Elliott, Gretchen and Walter love triangle/leave the company thing. That's what I thought they we're going to do after that TV interview from the last episode.

    Spoiler:
    Using the Grey Matter people to deliver money was genius. I think that was the only thing that no one really predicted. Everything else went to plan. I read a lot of predictions on reddit and some people had everything else dead on, ricin in the sweetener, nazi's dead, Walt takes responsibility and Jessie gets the chance to kill Walt but decides not to. I think that just shows it was the only way the series could end and tie everything up. Anything else might compromise all the story arcs.

    He could have got out when he saw the guy buying meth equipment at the hardware store. That was a really key moment in the series cause that was when he realized he enjoyed it.

    Spoiler:
    From a writers point of view it really was the only way to kill off Walter. Other options would have been, Jessie kills him- wouldn't fit in with the new non-killing Jessie that was born after the Gale murder .A family member kills him- Skyler is out of the question since she basically helped him, Marie is too underdeveloped a character to suddenly have such a massive part and Walt Jnr missed his moment during the Ozymandias part when he called the police, if he wanted to kill him he would have done it then. Cancer kills him- it would be too convenient if after 5 seasons he suddenly died of Cancer in the last episode after finishing his business.

    But from a story point of view I don't think it makes 100% sense. Walt obviously planned everything, he planned on Jessie killing him but Jessie didn't want to kill. He obviously didn't plan on a stray bullet in the stomach so what would he have done if the bullet hadn't hit him ? Did Jessie only refuse to kill Walter because he knew he'd die anyway from the bullet ?

    Spoiler:

    Walt didn't plan on Jessie killing him from the start. He thought they were partners and only when he saw him did he soften a little. I think Walt may have just planned on suicide. He nearly killed himself in the very first episode (the safety saved him), so he has the balls for it. Perhaps if Jessie hadn't been there he wouldn't have dived to the ground and would have let the bullets hit him too, but who knows. Dying seemed very much part of his plan though.

    On a separate note, in hindsight I don't think it was ever really about the money. In the pilot his life is like a walking dream before he gets cancer and he tells Jessie his reason for cooking is because "I am awake". I remember a speech he gave about all living matter having a death sentence too, he was just aware of it. The admission in the last ep just goes to show that. Walter White is a really great character.

    Oh yeah, that makes sense.

    I thought that was a brilliant touch, having Walter admit he did it for himself really made a lot of difference to his character. I also liked how they played it out with music at the end.

    So brilliant.



    A lot of people are not too happy because it was predictable but as you guys have already touched on it couldn't have really went another way and I for one am glad it didn't.

    No pleasing some people. When you have so many people analysing every detail of such a popular show of course any outcome is going to be deemed 'predictable' unless you end up doing random stuff like Dexter and then you'll have people complaining about how it doesn't fit in the 5 seasons that preceded it.

    Satisfying ending. Those last three episodes are some of the best TV I've ever witnessed.
