Gotta name characters something.
Just thinking back now I think the first time we really see Heisenberg is when Tuco is about to shoot Jesse in the beginning of Season 2. His attitude and even voice changed in the one line where he said something like, "You're a degenerate and you deserve to die". This is what I love about this show. Seeds are planted way before we see the eventual flower bloom. It shows that the writers put a lot of thought into it. Unlike Dexter where every angle is introduced out of nowhere.
And the indian in the adobe house is now wondering how many more stacks of cash he could have really got for his truck... :pimpride8lr:
I liked when Skylar walked into the kitchen; she had the choice of "do I pick up the phone or do I pick up the knife?" I thought she would take the phone.
Damn you JD!!!!!!
You of all people!!! You that rant and rave about the popcorn munching masses of nudnicks who blindly gobble up main stream media pablum and prevent risk taking film makers and artists.
I WANT A BITTER TASTE IN MY MOUTH.
That's what this show IS.
For Walt to come riding in on a white horse in the final episode to rescue Jesse from Nazi Meth Servitude without anything to gain would be a betrayal of the character and the show.
Yes. I'm taking it way too seriously.
As for whether or not Walt is a good or bad person NOW...
I think a far more interesting exploration is "Was Walter White EVER a good person?"
I would argue....
No. No he wasn't.
I asked myself that question today, Doc. A good person would never have done the things Walter White has done. Like a comment I read on IMDB, bad people always justify their actions. Even Hitler didn't think he was being evil. We're watching this show from the point of view of Walter so we rationalize with him when in fact, he's the bad guy and in no way different from Gus.
There is no reasonable way to rebuild the bridge between Walter and Jesse at this point. That ship has sailed and I would also say the same for Skyler and Marie.
The larger question of course is... if Walter White was never a good person....
Are any of us? What is a "good person"? From the outset we've seen Walt compromise his alleged principles and values based on pride, greed and cowardice. Are any of us so different?
GOD DAMMIT THIS IS A GOOD SHOW!!!!
It appears he was an upstanding citizen.
What about that isn't good?
What do they call the show again?
Oh yeah, Breaking Bad.
The term 'breaking bad' is a southern colloquialism and it means when someone who has taken a turn off the path of the straight and narrow, when they've gone wrong. And that could be for that day or for a lifetime.
Breaking Bad - Breaking Bad Wiki
The creator of the show has stated that the point of the show is that "actions have consequences".
I think Walter White was a good person who...you know the rest.
No matter how good you might be for an X amount of time, you could go off the deep end if you choose to.
Walt decided to go off the deep end.
After he went that route, he had outs.
He could have straightened up and flown right, even after the time Hank discovered he was Heisenberg. (I have a little problem with the show over this. Why wouldn't Walt disappear himself and his family (the vacuum cleaner guy) after Hank made that discovery? What did he say to Uncle Jack? "You can be whatever you want".)
He continuted to choose to do bad (made the confession recording saying that Hank was Heisenberg).
What is a good person?
It's all relative, isn't it?
