Re: Breaking Bad Final Half Season

Yeah, I'd count on Jesse outliving everyone but Walt, and possibly even Walt!

Re: Breaking Bad Final Half Season

Jessie is going to make it for sure.
He knows best about Walt's evil deeds. I see him going kinda loopy and being institutionalized after all this... especially if Walt manages to evaporate into thin air with all that money.
Judging on the phone call from Hank to his wife, he's dead next episode. He's got to be. There just aren't those kinds of phone calls in scripted drama unless a character is getting offed.

Love the Better Call Saul news, too. Even if it's a webseries it'll be amazing.

Agree on all thoughts here.

I feel like his line about "it could be a while before you see me" and all the "love yous" may be foreshadowing his being kidnapped by the Nazis. I imagine they'd love to use him as leverage to keep Walt cooking for them for as long as they want.

Re: Breaking Bad Final Half Season

I think we have seen the last of Hank. I think the next episode will open with a pan over his dead body. He has survived two shootouts; a third would be pretty amazing. He reached his own personal height of glory last week, finally arresting the elusive Heisenberg.

I can't see Jack keeping Hank alive, more so they would take Jesse and make him cook leaving Walt to run off to New Hampshire, settle his family then come back to free Jessie. The end of the show will come down to Walt and Jessie.

Re: Breaking Bad Final Half Season

It would be hilarious if Walt came back to "save" Jesse only to learn Jesse is the new kingpin, right before Jesse puts a bullet between his eyes.

Fade to black.

Vince Gilligan

That would be breathtaking and would beat "Face Off" for sure, but I'd want Skylar and Jr. to get Walt's money.

I doubt they'd go about it that way. This may be Hank's swan song (or not) but even if it is, he'll get a better send off than that. He is after all the 3rd most important character, and he's been there since episode one

I doubt that it's a consideration, especially with the last few episodes until the series finale.

Breaking Bad is Walt's story and everybody else supports this story. If Hank's death serves the story in any kind of way i doubt Gilligan would hesitate to kill him off.

We don't know how the show will end other than some cryptic remark that Walt will end it his way (or something like that) so Hank's death may be positive in relation to Walt being goaded into action or it will ever draw him deeper into everything until he snaps.

We'll know soon enough.

Re: Breaking Bad Final Half Season

I could see Hank dying as something that would deeply destroy Walt. He's a bad dude but he still views Hank as family and if Hank dies directly as a result of him that might completely shift the character.

Once again... The show is called Breaking Bad, not "Breaking Bad, then not too Bad".

Why he still has some small morals the only reason why he might care that his brother-in-law is dead is because it gets in the way of the last few months alive being happy.

There are three episodes left, there is nothing to lose from killing everyone and anyone on the show.

Re: Breaking Bad Final Half Season

According to Vince Gilligan, "Ozymandias" is his favorite episode of the entire series, so I'm assuming some major shit is going to go down in tonight's episode (especially after last week's jaw-dropping cliffhanger).

Also, another interesting tidbit: Rian Johnson directed tonight's episode. Johnson is known for his film work such as Brick, Brothers Bloom and Looper but has directed a couple episodes of Breaking Bad in the past. So this one should be a dozy.

I think Jessie survives this episode but Hank does not, and Walt ends up enslaved as a meth manufacturer to these people in order to protect his family and Jesse.

Re: Breaking Bad Final Half Season

God damn! "Ozymandias" was probably the most gut-wrenching episode yet. It was gripping yet hard to watch.

I've also never seen a show where the credits were literally halfway through an episode.

I'd like to say that Walt pretty much confessed over the phone when all Skyler did was tell the police that he took Holly, but it looks like everything was unravelling anyway.
