. Gilligan explained that the reason Walt placed his watch (the one Jesse gave him for his 51st birthday) on top of the payphone after pretending to be the New York Times reporter was only retrofitted symbolism: The reason he had to do it was because they realized that in the flash-forward of him at Denny's that they'd shot for episode 501, Walt wasn't wearing a watch, so they had to explain where it went for continuity reasons. And so, out of necessity, they came up with what Gilligan called the "artsy fartsy" reason: It was a symbol of Walt, seeing the end is near, cutting ties with one of his "arch-nemeses," Jesse.

I loved it from start to finish.....but....I have to say like...

when that earlier episode ended with Hank in a shoot out we all said a major character like him isn't going to just die in the crossfire. Which is right.....but then they did exactly that to Walt? I can't imagine any other way, you wouldn't expect anyone to kill him, cos he has to be the smartest one in the room and outwit anyone that comes for him, it just felt anti climactic. The 50 minutes before that was all superb climax, though so it's a very minor gripe.

Walt accidentally killing himself felt more satisfying to me than Jesse pulling the trigger. Jesse throwing the gun down and finally get rid of Walt's shackles was also a satisfying ending for that character. Things are still pretty miserable for everyone left alive but those endings felt right for Walt and Jesse IMO.

No money to escape, no contact with Saul to help out, surely seen fleeing, prints all over the place, confession dvd potentially still at the Nazi base.

 

Jesse is going to prison for a very long time.

I was thinking the same. I wanted things to work out for him and in a way it did but his future isn't looking too bright.

 

I thought the whole series was a masterpiece from start to finish. Best bit of tv since the sopranos. I think I might have preferred it to that even

 

And I wouldn't say the ending was too sentimental either. It wasn't exactly a happy ending!

Well old misery chops here wasn't impressed. A very cliched end with all the boxes ticked and no doubt keeping most of the fans happy.

 

I still think that Ozymandias was a superb brutal ending and such a great show didn't need the Hollywood style tie up.

 

Sad it's over :(

 

So you wanted:-

 

Skylar imprisoned for Walt's misdeeds

Flynn a homeless orphan due to Walt's misdeeds

Holly a homeless orphan due to Walt's misdeeds

Hank dead due to Walt's misdeeds

Marie widowed due to Walt's misdeeds

The Nazi's to escape with tens of millions

Badger & Skinny Pete to get nothing

Jesse to be held perpetual prisoner in tortuous conditions

Walt (who caused all this misery) to leave with his money to himself but to die off screen from his cancer in a couple of months

 

Wheras the professionals who created the show decided it should be....

 

 

Skylar gets a deal to walk free with millions of dollars coming to her soon

Flynn gets to keep his mam and sister and has millions coming his way too

Holly gets to keep her mam and brother and has millions coming her way too

Hank dead due to Walt's misdeeds

Marie widowed due to Walt's misdeeds

The Nazi's wiped out

Badger & Skinny Pete get a few thousand each to enjoy

Jesse wins his freedom

Walt (who caused all this misery) is killed, while redeeming himself to some extent

 

Why you no write one of the greatest US tv shows in 30 years? :D

You should watch requiem for a Dream. That's ridiculously dark to the point of comedic too. You'd enjoy it.

 

I think that would work as an excellent season finale. Not as a series finale though. Basically saying at the end of it all Walt ran away. Which is a total cop out.
