Well, Breaking Bad pulled off the rare feat of giving the viewers a Series Finale that does the entire run justice. Most "revered" series always tend to produce an episode that just can't live up the the legacy. Felina is definitely something to be proud of as it keeps in line with the tone of the show and its characters. My biggest concern was that it just would not be able to pull it off. There were a couple of surprises and some that I actually saw coming a mile away. We finally see the end game of Walt's ricin. Ever since the start of the final eight episodes, I had been trying to pinpoint what he was going to do with it. He was either going to poison himself or someone else. It was just a question of who was going to be on the receiving end. I will keep that to myself. No spoilers. Let's just say that it will make fans of the show happy.

I want to say more, but a lot of stuff goes down in the 75 minute long episode. All the loose ends are tied up. Those that deserved their justice get it in spades. All that was left was the final confrontation between Walt and Jesse and it was good. Brilliant actually. I hope the DVD set will have an even longer, extended cut of the episode. It deserves one for sure. The final scene was very good and very satisfying. But I will say that I had written it a different way in my head a while back and was kind of hoping that it was going to play out the way I envisioned it. Anyway, this is a fantastic send-off to a monumental achievement in TV writing and character-study. Amazing.

I will post the episode link tomorrow when it's made available.
