‘Breaking Bad’ Series Finale Recap: ‘Felina’

There are only a handful of modern television shows whose finales seemed to be anticipated as feverishly as “Felina,” last night’s closing episode of Breaking Bad. The last one I can remember was Lost’s, and the interest swirling around that finale was mostly borne out of a desire to have the program’s numerous mysteries “solved” (for good or ill, as it turned out). There was a bit of that happening over the past few months (Who was that ricin for? Who all was going to die? How would it all end?); some of the hype was at least partially due to how many people have come to the show late, within this final half-season even (as the stunning uptick in its recent ratings can attest). But Breaking Bad also had its own reputation to live up to. Throughout the show’s run, it has knocked the air out of viewers with stunning set pieces: Hank’s shoot-out in the parking lot, Walt’s vehicular homicide, the combustion of Gus Fring, right up to that desert shoot-out three weeks ago. To go out properly, the final Breaking Bad would have to equal those moments. Breaking Bad went out properly. … Read More

‘Breaking Bad’ Season 5, Episode 15 Recap: ‘Granite State’

Throughout its run, Breaking Bad has contemplated the horror of a seemingly good man’s transformation into a monster. But the show’s penultimate episode, “Granite State,” digs deeper and asks which is sadder: that conversion, or the subsequent station of a man who fancies himself a monster, yet can no longer pull it off? In the bunker that Walter White shares with Saul Goodman before they part ways for the last time, he formulates a final, desperate plan to hit Jack’s gang and “take back what is mine.” But that plan is out of his reach—those are the people he gets to execute that kind of assignment, not receive it—and when Walt tries to threaten Saul into helping, he collapses in a coughing fit. The brilliant drug kingpin can no longer even intimidate his squirrely lawyer. Later, he stands at the gate of his survivalist cabin, stashed away in snowy isolation; his parka is stuffed with cash, his Heisenberg hat has been retrieved from his bag and symbolically returned to his head. But he coughs and hacks, and can’t go any further. “Tomorrow,” he assures himself. “Tomorrow.” … Read More
