The OFFICIAL Breaking Bad Final 8 Thread (with teaser trailer)

My guess is that Gilligan is going to end this with Walt alive, alone, and surrounded by his money (all of it) that neither his wife or his children want anything to do with.

Marie is in the wind and all but done as far as the series is concerned. She no longer has a role to play.

M60 is for Jack, Todd, Jesse & co. Walt has show that he hardened his heart towards Jesse and at this point he is just "one of the bad guys" that stole his money and are now stealing his legacy.

Ricin is for Gretchen & Elliot because fug them for what they said on TV

Saul has made his exit

Lydia slinks back into her hole with Madrigal

I think that by condemning Walt win back all of the spoils of his works but be unable to share with/give them to those who he did this for, it really drives home the point that all of those good intentions were the paving stones on the road to damnation. And hasn't that been what Vince has been telling us for the last 5 seasons?

If the last scene was Walt in the cabin with a chemo bag and 6 black barrels I would be very satisfied.

Yeah that's not happening. Gillagan has said multiple times the ending ties up all loose ends. Your prediction doesn't answer what happens to Lydia or Saul and just leaves a very empty ending because if things are just staying the same then why is the show ending? Makes no sense.

Saul's story is over, he's off to a fresh start.  The only loose ends are the fates of Walt, Jesse, Lydia, Todd/nazis and Walt's family(Skyler, Marie, Jr).  I think there's nothing to tie up with Madrigal, only Lydia.  Gretchen and Elliot served to get Walt motivated again, I think their story is done too.  

 

I think it ends with Jesse killing Walt and goes off with Brock to start a new life.

I think the ricin is for Lydia.  She's always drinking something.

Huh...

 

I see everything as tied up with that. 

 

Saul is done and over at this point.  He is off to a new life.

Lydia's story has completion because of the way she arrived in the overall arc.  She was/is like Huell is as much as she is more color to the story than an compelling side plot that must be addressed.  She does little more than serve as a motivator for Todd.  She is off Walt's radar for sure.

 

And I for one like the idea that Walt gets what he has always wanted but cant enjoy it because getting it cost him everything he loved.

 

But of course that's just my opinion...

What makes y'all so certain that Saul is done?  Walt didn't say they were done.

 

Nebraska is right on the way between New Hampshire and New Mexico...

Possibly.  How would Walt find him though?  Check every Cinnabon in the area?

For whatever reason, I still think Walt "saves" Jesse. Possibly my own wishful thinking, but I still have hope that Jesse lives, possibly with Walt sacrificing himself to save Jesse/Brock. 

 

I also like the idea of the Skylar and the kids with the barrels and the van coming to pick them up, but I can't see Walt Jr. being down with that after the phone call. Not to mention the family is being watched by police. 

 

I've been wanting Walt to live somehow...but it's not happening. Gilligan's pitch for the show was to turn Mr. Chips into Scarface...Walt is going out the same way Tony Montana did, big gun blazing.

I can see the possibility of Saul 'making a call' to help Walt at the 9th hour, but I think we've seen the last of him.
