Storyline

In the series finale, Walt returns to Albuquerque to settle accounts. He visits his former business partners Elliott and Gretchen Schwartz with a proposition. When they are less than forthcoming, he makes them an offer they can't refuse. He pays one last visit to Skyler but avoids seeing Walt Jr. In a coffee shop, he meets Todd and Lydia saying he's now broke but has a new formula for making meth that he wants to sell them. It's all a ruse to get a meeting with the neo-Nazis who stole his money. Once there, he puts his final plan into action. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

A comedic sketch was filmed as a DVD bonus depicting an alternate ending where Bryan Cranston reprises his role as Malcolm in the Middle (2000)'s Hal. He wakes up next to his wife Lois (Jane Kaczmarek) and begins describing the horrors of the Heisenberg empire, and at one point begins referring to Lois as Skyler. The scene ends with him attempting Heisenberg-style love making and Walter White's trademark black hat appears on the chair next to the bed. This scene was leaked on YouTube before the final DVD set was released. See more »

Best finale in television history
29 September 2013 | by royalewithcheese2020See all my reviews

Whether the finale made everyone happy or not, it doesn't really matter. If this episode didn't move you're emotions, then you didn't watch the series close enough. It was a hell of a fitting ending for this series, and a spectacular one at that. If you have been watching this show for at least the last year, this episode is what all breaking bad fans could have wished for in a finale. It's not a sopranos ending when you have to make your own interpretation. Every loose end is tied up like expected. Yes, it was somewhat predictable,but the execution was marvelous and it was emotional, for me, how it ended. These guys obviously aren't getting off easy. They have been put through more heartache and disaster than just about any average human being could bear. That's what is so great about the series though. It takes two realistic, average characters and transforms them into totally different people. Just goes to show what comes with choosing a life where you are hurting others and making bad decisions. Walt and Jesse are shells of the people they once were, the unique personalities they once had, and the families and ones they loved that they lost. Whether they evade the cops or not, Walt and Jesse are dead on the inside. But there is still a little moral victory left to happen.
