Re: Breaking Bad Final Half Season

Really, you could just view "Ozymandias" and "Granite State" as the "big" finales of the series. "Felina" was much more of an epilogue itself, that last little tease at the end of the book to cross all the "t"s and dot the "i"s.

And I agree with TheGodBen - I like that they didn't flash forward to show how things turned out for everyone. Saul, Skyler, Flynn, etc. Ultimately this wasn't their story, it was Walt's (and Jesse's). But more importantly, real life doesn't work that way.

We don't get a great Six Feet Under montage at the end of some chapter in our lives, no matter how much we may want it. And for a show like Breaking Bad, that kind of ending would have diminished what we got.

Was it the best series finale of all time? No. But was it perfect for Breaking Bad? Absolutely.
