And thank God for that. Nothing left ambiguous (except for what exactly happens to Pinkman now.) I prefer a show that just reaches a conclusion on its own rather than puss out and ask the audience "Well, what do YOU think happens?"

Re: Breaking Bad --> Series Finale --> "Felina" --> 9/29/13

I was hoping that maybe Walt would blow up the lab before the cops got there. And I hoped he would have said something like "It's science, bitches" just before he did it.

It wasn't clear to me from the end that Walt was for sure dead until they said so on Talking Bad. Watching it a second time though it was more clear to me.

No trust fund for Holly? I hope Flynn takes care of her and his mom.

My wish to see Badger and Skinny Pete one more time came true at least!

Lucky for Walt that they didn't ask to check his trunk before entering their compound.

I would have liked to see a little more dialogue from Jesse and any dialogue from Flynn...maybe a scene with his mom. Otherwise, I thought it was excellent.

Any chance Jesse knows where the money is? He probably wouldn't want it anyway.

I like that Walt admitted he did all this for himself and not for his family. That's was the only defense that people on Team Walt had that he wasn't an evil person.

There are a few ambiguities. That wound on Walt doesn't necessarily look like it would be definitively fatal. Did the cancer get him at an opportune time? Did he will himself to death? Was it the gunshot? I predict that will be the big ambiguity you'll hear about ten years down the road along with what did Jesse do but that might one day get fleshed out (like in a comic maybe).

now the real question was, does Walt die because of the cancer finally kicking in, or the gun shot wound

He wasn't an evil person, and actually just about all of his actions (other than arguably, ARGUABLY Lydia) were completely redeeming this episode.

He did evil things, but he did what he could to set those right. It was so powerful that he killed Jack instead of hearing him out about the money. That was for Hank.

Walt caught a round, likely died of internal hemorrhage. Went out on his own terms with no loose ends, just like someone in the Empire Business should.

Walt's work was done. He was about to die anyway. The gunshot wound just sped it up.

Though I suppose if AMC's drama well runs dry, and they throw enough money Vince's way, he could always be revived on the operating table...

It didn't look too much like the bleeding was that severe. He wasn't in shock, for instance. I think this minor point was very intentionally left ambiguous.

I don't think there's any ambiguity at all to it.

I read this on Twitter a little while ago… Hilarious…

"If Breaking Bad ended any way other than Walter White going to witness protection & becoming Malcolm in the Middle's dad, my life is a lie."

I don't think so. That sort of ambiguity hardly seems like it would make for some good water cooler discussion. I think they were fairly clear the bullet did him in.

How long until I can buy one of those car door opener keyring replicas with the Breaking Bad logo on the back?

Solid ending. I was wondering if Walt's original plan was to take a bullet along with everyone else until he realized he could save Jessie.

I suppose it would have been way too Hollywood to have Jessie kill Todd screaming IT IS COMPLETELY PERSONAL, BITCH!

Loved it. I feel like realistically they couldn't have wrapped things up in a more satisfying way. I'm glad they went for a straight-froward ending rather than something that needs dissecting just to understand what happened.

Such a fitting ending, from Walt's gun rig (his final stroke of ingenuity), to Pinkman refusing to oblige Walt's final request but them still parting with a sense of mutual respect, to the show ending in a meth lab. It's so rare that a show maintains such high quality and cohesive storytelling from beginning to end.
