Re: Breaking Bad Final Half Season
If the end message of this show is just "crime doesn't pay" then it'd be a letdown. I don't think that's the way they're going to go.
I don't think the message is that crime doesn't pay, but that ego doesn't pay. Walt has had several opportunities to walk away with a healthy profit, but his ego kept bringing him back even as the stakes and the body-count kept getting higher.
