Very satisfied w/ the show and all questions answered except how will Walt Jr react to the trust and where is the $ the Nazi's stole?From Nick Bilton - NY Times
The last episode of #BreakingBad is titled "Felina."
Using the periodic table: Fe (Iron) Li (Lithium) Na (Sodium),
Or, it means: Blood, Meth & Tears.
(And it's an anagram for "finale")
I'm still pretty shocked they were able to wrap it up so neatly. I was worried that the extended run time still wouldn't be enough. Turns out it was plenty.
I personally loved the final episode because my favorite character made it out alive, finally, after all the mental and physical torture he endured. It just felt so damn good to see him drive through that fence.
BREAKING BAD SPOILER BELOW!!!
Regarding the final episode, I don't think the "neat little package" gripe is valid. Some justice was served, and they didn't tease us with the possibility of more to come, but you couldn't exactly call it a "happy ending". Those who we wanted to survive lived, and others who deserved to die did, but SO many bad things happened to good people and countless lives wrecked along the way that a fitting end to the two main characters was perfectly allowable. Now, if they had closed the show with a glimpse 10 years into the future with Junior gleefully accepting his cash; Jesse and Brock like father and son; Skyler and Marie both happily remarried; etc., THEN any and all criticism would be deserved.
The box scene was one of the saddest moments of the episode. If you recall early in the show Jesse shared at a group meeting that if he could do anything without worrying about money he'd work with his hands. He shared how he had taken a woodworking class where he built a wooden box for his project, and that inspired him to keep working on them until he made one that he thought was perfect. But in the end he ended up trading it for some pot. Great scene showing Jesse realizing all his wasted potential.
I found the abrupt, cut to black death of Tony Soprano to be a much more fitting ending for such a despicable character.
