Oh, nevermind, I just saw where you didn't quote the whole post; just my reading that the phrasing indicates warmth for Walt.

I will concede that it isn't a confirmation of Vince's intention. But when paired with the rest of the episode it feels quite warm to me. Maybe that's confirmation bias, but I'm still not convinced that the finale isn't intended to redeem Walt as much as is feasible.

Even if much of the final episode provides Walt some redemption, he's still a round character, and he isn't an archvillain. Also, the show was not inconsistent in its tendencies to avoid justice for the corrupt. Saul, for example.

Additionally, treacherous people can do good things for ambiguous reasons. The killing of Jack's gang was not born out of a quest for righteous justice, but the outcome was still a good one.

Even if you see Gilligan as a moralist, Walt "getting away" is not an absolute statement on what he feel should happen; it could just be the machinations of a ****ed up world.

Good things often happen to bad people.

Dude I've seen many disturbing moments on that show, but that messed me up. I hadn't watched BB for a few months and was just blown away with how it ended. I guess I shouldn't have been surprised.

That ending. Barf.

It's funny. My fiancee and I thought there was one more season. Netflix said there was only five seasons, but we saw a 6th and final season at Target so we purchased it.

We were all like, "do you think he faked his death? What happens next?"

Get around to watching it last night and low and behold we've seen it all. Damn you Netflix.

I'm not going to rehash the debate which recently happened.

Loved the show. Wasn't a huge fan of the ending is all.

Maybe I wasn't a fan because I was confused and thought there was one more season after.
