Aug 11th 2013
11

Aug 11th 2013
12
1 thing you can never accuse this show of is dragging shit out
Aug 11th 2013
13
Yep
Aug 12th 2013
48
Can Skinny Pete and Badger get a spin-off web series?
Aug 11th 2013
14
The flash forward and end of that make me think he disapears
Aug 11th 2013
15
I really loved Badger's Star Trek script idea
Aug 11th 2013
17
I didn't want that scene to end. n/m
Aug 11th 2013
18
they need to replace/join Burr and Crawford as Saul associates
Aug 12th 2013
29
The fact Heisenberg
Aug 11th 2013
16
leads me to believe that his true identity becomes public knowledge
Aug 11th 2013
19
      *drops groceries*
Aug 11th 2013
20
      Without a doubt, that happens.
Aug 12th 2013
21
      Definitely. But...
Aug 12th 2013
23
      Right. I think he becomes a legend via a news story or something
Aug 12th 2013
39
      Charlie Rose recently let it slip that he appears in the finale...
Aug 12th 2013
40
      Right
Aug 12th 2013
37
           Yeah I think it's looking like a W for Hank
Aug 12th 2013
38
                RE: Yeah I think it's looking like a W for Hank
Aug 12th 2013

                     nah, you nailed it

HELP ME, JESUS, THAT LAST SCENE.
Aug 12th 2013
22
I've long predicted Walt would ultimately die of cancer. Now, I dunno.
Aug 12th 2013
24
I wonder... (Conjecture post )
Aug 12th 2013
25
      That would certainly bring the "Walt IS a cancer" theme full circle...
Aug 12th 2013
26
      I know Jesse is set up as "the anti-Walt"...
Aug 12th 2013
27
      I've always maintained...
Aug 12th 2013
31
The flashforwards are really interesting now
Aug 12th 2013
28
and ricin seems too subtle for him now.
Aug 12th 2013
30
      Maybe Jesse?
Aug 12th 2013
32
           yeah jesse seems right. since he wouldnt want jesse to know
Aug 12th 2013
33
                RE: yeah jesse seems right. since he wouldnt want jesse to know
Aug 12th 2013
44
                I actually meant Walt coming back to defend Jesse...

***THE GARAGE SCENE***
Aug 12th 2013

The door close was SUCH a balls-out move by the writers.

I wasn't THAT down on Talking Bad.
Aug 12th 2013
62
      I just hate pretty much all talkback shows.
Aug 12th 2013
64
           Sure. But I found it to be a good decompression.
Aug 12th 2013
66
He didnt lose some money either
Aug 12th 2013
49
true and he bought a big ass gun too
Aug 12th 2013
51
Dont take free refills for granted....theres an art to it.
Aug 12th 2013
53
my guess is that was the last of walts money.
Aug 12th 2013
94
My guess is something along these lines
Aug 12th 2013
52
1 for 1
Aug 12th 2013
36
Wonder if that tracker was on Walt's car when he drove to Jessie's
Aug 12th 2013
41
It probably was but that isn't too major
Aug 12th 2013
59
But Walt could have deleted that data.
Aug 12th 2013
60
While I'm sure Jesse still dislikes
Aug 12th 2013
61
      I think what we're seeing in Jesse is a need to confess
Aug 12th 2013
63
           RE: I think what we're seeing in Jesse is a need to confess
Aug 12th 2013
65
This is a brilliant line.

It probably wasn't smart for Skyler to try to check Lydia

      Right?
Aug 12th 2013
90
      she seems ready to blurt out "It was all Gus/Mike/Walt's idea"
Aug 13th 2013
105
i really love the Lydia character
Aug 12th 2013
73
But even if Lydia isn't afraid of Skyler
Aug 12th 2013
75
      I don't see why she'd be afraid of Walt though
Aug 12th 2013
82
           well he did have 9 guys clipped in 2 minutes
Aug 12th 2013
83
                and he blew up Gus
Aug 13th 2013
97
                Yeah, which was Lydia's idea.
Aug 13th 2013
102
to go from Mr. Chips to Scarface, Walt must kill Jesse..n/m

100
Yes!
Aug 13th 2013
106
He had a full head of hair in the flash forward too
Aug 13th 2013
101
The cancer is back. He's just not getting rid of chemo.
Aug 13th 2013
103
not to mention he probably doesn't even care about his own life...
Aug 13th 2013
107
Crazy theory:
Aug 13th 2013
113
      This is what I think. I don't believe its back
Aug 16th 2013

Plus, Jesse has done harm to Hank and he knows it

Aug 25th 2013

They've never addressed where she goes during car wash hours

I caught this on one of the many Breaking Bad message boards/tweets/posts.
Maybe you guys have already mentioned this and I missed it.
Pretty perceptive.

From poster Travis:
Is it possible that Walt kills Skylar at the end?
Walt has taken up the habits of people he’s killed (or had killed), such as cutting the crust off his bread like Krazy 8 and drinking coffee after he has Gail killed.
Every year on his birthday, Skyler has cut his bacon and arranged it to show his age. In the flash forward of “Live Free or Die”, Walt is shown on his birthday doing the same thing that Skyler had done in previous birthdays.

Cuts a deal with Hank that he leaves Skyler and the kids (or just the kids) and disappears.

Maybe Hank pretends he died, clearly the neighbor was shocked to see him , it made me think she was looking at someone she thought was dead.

I want to know how the public at large comes to know Heisenberg. The police know. The meth heads know. But how does Carol know? Granted, if you see your neighbors house get raided and maybe find out crimes have been committed there...you'll be shook, but that someone wrote HEISENBERG means that he's become some sort of legend or something, right?

In response to Reply # 19


  

          

When I first saw the writing on the wall, I thought it was either the Czech connection or Declan's crew that wrote it on the wall since those were the immediate enemies Walt had at the time since he quit. But since the place wasn't shot up or there weren't any overt signs of violence, I don't think it was them. More than likely, Hank outed his identity so that the general public could tip off the DEA to his wereabouts since it appears he was one step ahead of Hank according to the flash forward.

>At least in terms of him living long enough to out Walt

Yeah, he found his white whale, but I'm almost certain he's going to lose that DEA job. And I can't imagine who would want to hire him in any type of law enforcement capacity given the circumstances. Hank literally took money for himself from Walt's drug proceeds. For a proud guy like Hank, it's going to have to hurt to have Marie be the bread winner in the house.

I feel uncomfortable making that Moby Dick reference because I have to admit I never read the book.

24. "I've long predicted Walt would ultimately die of cancer. Now, I dunno."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I've thought the most poetic way for the show to end would be Walt dying alone, abandoned by everyone he once loved, defeated by the disease that started him down this road in the first place. But after tonight, with how much that fate has been directly teased, I'm not sure I have any fucking idea what's gonna happen. I mean, Walt simply getting offed by Hank or Jesse or whoever seems far too obvious. He's not getting away. And a jail sentence would just feel...anticlimactic. He's clearly on some sort of suicide mission in those flashback scenes. He didn't care that his neighbor spotted him. (And I gotta say, it was pretty chilling to see the White family house, to which we've all become so accustomed, condemned and tagged up. Holy crap.) But what could possibly bring him back, with that big-ass gun and now the ricin?

GREAT episode. But man, I'm gonna have an ulcer by the time these last eight are done.

... whether he, advertently or not, ends up killing people close to him. Jesse, Hank, even Skylar. That's the ULTIMATE loneliness.

What if the ricin at the end is for Skylar? Or Jesse? How fucking heartbreaking for Walt (and us) would that be?

In response to Reply # 25


  

          

I'm starting to believe the theory going around that he murders Skylar sometime before all those flashback scenes occur. I have a feeling Jesse will get out of the show alive...though it's looking more and more like he may off himself, if anything.

I also wouldn't be surprised if Walt plans to use that ricin on himself...

In response to Reply # 26


  

          

... but if Walt's actions mean he deserves to die, then so does Jesse. Literally the only difference is remorse and timing: Jesse felt shitty earlier, and got out before the jail murders, but he's still complicit in several murders, he still bought Jane's smack, he still shot Gale in the face.

I'm not convinced Jesse gets out.

I can buy the idea that Walt gets his family "taken" from him, by protective custody or something...

I dunno. So many options.

31. "I've always maintained..."
In response to Reply # 25


  

          

...that one of his family members has to die. For the entire series, Skyler has been telling Walter, "You can't do this, it's going to put our family in danger." There has to be a pay-off.

I think it's going to be Walter Jr. It goes pear-shaped with the Czechs and they call in the goon squad to get Walt back in line. Probably those shit-crazy skinheads in the last half season finale or the exterminator crew. Maybe some home invasion shit. That leads to Skyler fleeing with the kids and the house being abandoned.

28. "The flashforwards are really interesting now"
In response to Reply # 0


          

The whole world knows who he is, he's probably weeks from dying from cancer, but he feels the need to have automatic weapons and ricin? Can't imagine who they would be for at this point. I can't see who he'd possibly feel he NEEDS to kill or protect himself from when he's basically already dead and has lost everything. My only thought is that he must be trying to defend someone.

I agree, it seems like he can't be trying to save himself, especially since "Hi, Carol" indicates that he doesn't care who sees him.

Tough to tell because he is keeping the cancer a secret from Skylar, so I'm guessing his condition isn't all that great. Even in the flash forward from the prior eight episodes, he took a pill before he bought the gun if I remember correctly. But also present in the flash forwards is the fact he isn't going through chemo therapy since he has a full head of hair and the bushy facial hair.

he said six months, not weeks. and his ID was a fake in the first flash forward, so there's no telling what age he is (could be doing the bacon thing to celebrate the 52nd birthday that already passed or he knows he won't see his 52nd). he turned 51 halfway through season 5A, but in the last episode there's a montage that covers several months of making cash off the european drug trade. so he's probably 51.5, maybe a little older.

34. "***THE GARAGE SCENE***"
In response to Reply # 0
Mon Aug-12-13 11:18 AM by buckshot defunct

  

          

I did not expect that door to close, or that confrontation to happen this early in the game. It just drives home the point that this shit is ending, and that the final confrontation won't be Walt vs Hank, but Walt vs Jesse.

Actually, I think it'll be Walt vs Walt. I suspect that ricin is for himself in the event that he gets caught. Go back to what he told Hank, 2 things stuck out to me: "I'm a dead man" and "You know I won't see the inside of a jail cell" <--- Paraphrasing, but you know what I'm saying. He was speaking in the context of having cancer, which may or may not be in remission by the end of the story, but either way those words felt prophetic.

That scene was magnificent because we saw every version of Walter White in like a 2 minute span. The Ned Flanders schtick, the begging, and finally the threatening. It was like the 5 stage of grief, Heisenberg style.

As far as the cold open, it seems pretty clear to me he's lost everything ('cept dat ricin) and I can only assume that includes his family. That might not mean they're dead, but they seem to be out of the picture in a very final way. I suppose they could be in custody (or being held hostage by some Madrigal goons) and his plan is to liberate them with that big ass gun, but I'm trying not to get too hung up on the theories at this point.

I'm hoping that show doesn't mean the show runners abandon the offical Breaking Bad podcast. So much insight given on that podcast and much better run that that TV show. But I have a feeling they will though since the show runners can only do so much in 24 hours.

But with Walt leaving $100 tips (There isn't a Dennys on earth got the customer service to justify THAT) and Jesse just straight up tossing racks out his car window, I think the money has more or less become worthless to them

Hank knows who he is and knows he works with Jesse. At this point he just knows he still sees Jesse who I'm sure he plans to pay a visit to anyway (or doing something to get around the restraining order)

I don't think any new info came from that visit to Jesse, just confirmation of what is already known.

Hank because of the Critical Beatdown he caught earlier on in the series, it would be ill if Hank somehow twisted Jesse's head up to the point he'd be willing to drop dimes on Walt. I'm sure it isn't likely since he has no clue what kind or relationship the two of them have, but that would be interesting.

That's not the same thing as snitching though.

He's been here before, but it feels too late in the story for him to pull another 180. Dude can't wait to get rid of that money. Walt can't give him a cleaner conscience but maybe Hank can? I mean once Jesse finds out about Mike (or his girlfriend, or Brock, etc.) I would think that would be a wrap. But it's such a fucked up relationship to begin with you never know

I don't want to go too crazy trying to prognosticate Jesse's future, but the one bad thing for him is that unlike the past, he has no one at the moment that he respects or looks up to that can help pull him out of the tailspin that he's in. No Mike, No Gus, and he is rightly suspicious of Walt and doesn't trust a word he says. He was right in dumping that girlfriend of his since she probably would have found out one way or another how he earned his money, but at least she would have created a positive environment for him. Dude cutting off both his cell and land lines was pretty telling. Given all the bad signs and the fact there's only seven episodes left, things aren't look that good for Jesse.

Okay, so it's time for the "Let's bash Mrs. White!" response to thread: Skyler confronting Lydia and telling her GTFO was a dumb move. She's not exactly dealing with Jesse Pinkman circa Season 1. Lydia might come across as a flake, but she's very connected and operating on a hair-trigger. So Skyler should've just treaded lightly and left it at Walter Gus Fringing the lady.

I'm not part of the camp that blindly dislikes her, but that was a silly move because ultimately Lydia was already walking to her car when threw her out of the car wash. I wonder if she did that because she wasn't sure Walt told her to kick bricks or if she did it to stand by her man so to speak.

73. "i really love the Lydia character"
In response to Reply # 67


  

          

she's always a nervous wreck, she comes off timid as fuck, but she's as evil and dangerous as they come

the way Lydia carries herself, it's easy to see why Skyler would think she could punk her that way

In response to Reply # 67


  

          

she's afraid of Walt. Skyler came out like some muscle to get her out of there. Lydia is more so worried about those Czech connections right now, she ain't going to pull no moves on Walt and Skyler.

82. "I don't see why she'd be afraid of Walt though"
In response to Reply # 75


  

          

If you had said Mike, I could agree. But she's believes Mike's in the wind and not backing up Walt anymore. Walt's just a chemist now. All the muscle is either dead or on her payroll

>Lydia is more so worried about those Czech
>connections right now, she ain't going to pull no moves on
>Walt and Skyler.

It's her fear of the Czechs that could well make her pull moves on Walt and Skyler. It sounds like the Czechs are on her ass because the product is wack after Heisenberg retired. Do you think she's above having Skyler hurt or killed in order to force Walt to come back and right the ship?

when walt enters the house i can finally put together all his birthday entries into the house and how they've changed each year. ( http://i.imgur.com/RWPTkJp.gif )

his identity as heisenberg either gets revealed publicly or someone came back to the house looking for him, whether that be the chezcs or declan or whoever. whoever the ricin is for its got to be someone not suspecting it, right? you got to be up close to use that one and who is gonna allow themselves to be close to this guy without being weary of him at this point?

also: DAT SHOT of him in the broken mirror, the blurred lines between walt and heisenberg.

jesse, man. he hasn't been doing ANYTHING but think about that kid and mike. he's coming off as a liability right now. i cant imagine how depressed he's gonna be when he finds out what walt has done (if he finds out, i cant imagine they wouldn't bring it to the forefront but you never know) even with walt lying to his fuckin face he doesnt really seem to believe him.

they've gone to show that jesse doesn't care about the money, something has to bring him back from this depression he's going through. it doesn't seem like it can sustain itself through the final 8 without being repetitive. however, thats not really a major concern with these writers.

now, the GARAGE SCENE

jesus. the amount of emotions hank goes through, he wants to kill walt but then he wants to hug him and then shake him. this isn't like when he beat the shit out of jesse, this is betrayal. all the shit heisenberg has done to hank to get him off the trail.

that moment walt changes to heisenberg is as soon as he mentions the kids and skyler. thats when the turn happens…then it happens in audible form when he tells hank to tread lightly. to me its less of a threat and more of a "i don't want to kill you but you're not giving me any other choice"

Which means he has given up chemo and is on his way out or that his cancer is gone and he would be even more desperate knowing he is not going to die and might see jail.

at this point. something made him run away and we can pretty much deduce he was on his own at that point. he's looking for a bit of redemption here. why would he come back? my only guess would be to save someone. my guess would be jesse.

i know they aint supposed to be the most ethical people
but why would he sell enough firearms to kill a small village when walt is on the run and the public knows heisenberg?
is it because he is not fighting the authorities at that point?
is a shootout with the czechs really going to make an interesting finale?

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

is back. I can't link it because I'm at work, and I don't think it's up on iTunes at the moment, but it's available on the AMC Breaking Bad website. Someone on the website provided a link to manually download the mp3 of the podcast for episode 9, so I'm listening to the podcast as I type this message via my Galaxy S3. Much props to the show runners to carve out time to record these and still do the Talking Bad show.

?uest RT one on twitter that might be correct. I'm going to be mad if it is. I blocked & muted every word regarding the show but I'm thinking just shutting off my phone for the next 2 months might to be the only way.

Yeah, that was a pretty fucking insane episode. So much shit in one hour: Skyler makes her full turn. Marie's not quite as dumb as we think she is. Lydia is **just** as ruthless as we think she is, even if the sight of blood makes her squeamish. Walt plays Superman digging and dumping all that cash. Saul almost gets sent on a trip to Belize. I really would've like to see DeClain's last stand, though I know they don't have the budget for it. And, of course, the teaser for the interrogation. With the set-up it received, I'm hoping there won't be a lot down, but they've delivered on everything during this young season, so I'll keep my hopes up.

There's not much time left to play cat and mouse, and with Hank and Jesse's history, and where Jesse is at right now (plus the scene was shot to make it look like a damn church confessional), something's gotta give.

If Hank tips his hand about knowing the truth about Walt... or can somehow use the Mike factor to exploit the kid's emotions... He might get him to talk. Question is, will Jesse be at a point where he's ready to give up, or will he pull some shit and try to protect Walt from the inside?

‘Breaking Bad:’ Why the Ending Doesn’t Really Matter

AUGUST 18, 2013 | 08:01PM PT

Media coverage is putting too much emphasis on how the AMC show wraps up

Brian Lowry
TV Columnist

Reading some of the overheated coverage of “Breaking Bad” as the series builds toward its finale brings to mind an old Spanish teacher, who chided students for putting the emphAHsis on the wrong syllAHble.

Interest in the program was already at a fever pitch among loyalists, but the ratings surge for its recent return will only fuel additional attention in print, online and on AMC’s half-hour talk parasite, “Talking Bad.” And a lot of those discussing the show clearly don’t quite get it — particularly those behaving as if there will be huge disappointment if the story doesn’t conclude in a way that completely satisfies die-hard fans.

Take the Wall Street Journal, which used the AMC drama as the linchpin of an (another) article about those who recap TV shows.

“The biggest challenges facing most ‘Breaking Bad’ fans during the crime drama’s final weeks are coping with cliffhangers and nervously speculating about the show’s conclusion,” the paper suggested.

Are people engaged in how the show turns out? Certainly. Nervous? For heaven’s sake why?

This isn’t “Lost,” where a great mystery drove the narrative from beginning to end. It’s much closer to “The Sopranos,” where a family man must balance that facet of his life against his involvement in a criminal enterprise. In each case, the lead character’s moral failings would seem to suggest the possibility of a great reckoning or cosmic comeuppance.

Yet the fact that “The Sopranos” ended (for me, anyway) on such a disappointing note didn’t diminish what came before it. It was just the last line in what up to then had been a pretty great novel for television.

The finish didn’t rewrite all the events that preceded it, but simply indicated series creator David Chase, ultimately, didn’t have any profound closing thoughts or creative gas left in the tank, beyond the cop-out of an inconclusive, your-mileage-may-vary closing scene.

Did that diminish everything that had gone before it? Hardly.

Viewers who have followed Walter White’s journey (as brilliantly played by Bryan Cranston) from the beginning obviously want to see how the story plays out, even if they belatedly jumped on the bandwagon via Netflix and binge-viewed the whole thing. This is one of those instances where the mom-and-pop store has long lines around it because of well-deserved word of mouth.

Yes (some spoilers are ahead), key “Breaking Bad” relationships have been strained, sisters have been turned against each other, family ties questioned and someone is probably going to prison — or dying. Far from stumbling toward the finish line, series creator Vince Gilligan and his team appear determined to plunge ahead full throttle.

But “Breaking Bad’s” hallmark has always been unpredictability — writing itself into fantastic, nail-biting corners, then finding some ingenious way out. So if the producers maintain that standard all the way to the finish line, more power to them, and if they can’t, they would hardly be the first.

Following that logic, I think New York Times critic Alessandra Stanley wasn’t speaking for many when she recently contemplated “Breaking Bad’s” imminent demise, stating, “Ever since ‘The Sopranos’ ended on a slyly ambiguous note that kept viewers deconstructing it for weeks, shows with artistic ambition cannot come to a mere close. There has to be a finish so big it sets off a tsunami of second-guessing. Once upon a time fans didn’t want their favorite series to end; now audiences clamor for a denouement they can debate forever.”

The media might want that — it’ll boost web traffic for a day or two — but “a denouement they can debate forever?” Are we to assume nobody has anything else on their minds?

I guess what I’m saying, in a roundabout way, is that at this point, even a bad breakup won’t be enough to break viewers’ devotion to “Breaking Bad.” And like “The Road Warrior” — another taciturn hero in a desolate land — whatever his fate, Walter White will live only in our memories.

this will be more gratifying cause i have faith in vince. his overall vision/endgame seems pretty thorough.
lost/sopranos/madmen i feel kinda were stringing/stragling along with no endgame in sight. even though lost should have.

- Very dizzying episode, between Jesse's merry-go-round ride and Walt rolling those barrels outta his van.

- The reappearance of Todd has reminded me that there are actually worse creeps on this show than Walt

- My first 'fuck Skyler' moment in a while... I tend to ride for her ride or die-ness but she went Skysenberg this ep and now I've basically had it with them both. Those two ain't about shit and their comeuppance will be delicious

- What do you make of Walt's offer to turn himself in? A rare moment of clarity/humility? A trick to see if Skyler had really kept quiet? Or was it just the concussion talking?

Even if not snitching is more about covering her own ass rather than going all out for Walt...I like how they're battling Hank and Marie on this together.

edit: re-reading your post I guess you're on team Hank/JUSTICE, lol. But I guess that's what makes this show so interesting in that people are all over the map on who they're rooting for.

At least until he does Jesse dirty to get at Walt, cuz I got a soft spot for that kid as well.

But Heisenberg? Yeah fuck that guy. His evolution into a monster made for some of the most compelling television ever, no doubt, but who is actually still rooting for this guy? Underpaid science teachers living out some revenge of the nerds fantasy?

The only reason I'm still *kinda* interested in Walt being somewhat redeemed is just to see if the writers can pull it off. I'm always amazed by the power of stories – depending on how they're told, the audience will pretty much root for anybody. But somewhere along the line Walt crossed that line for me and now I can't wait to see him lose.

Some small part of me still wants him to lose with a tiny bit of dignity restored.

and no, I'm not a science teacher, lol.

and allegiances aside...from a pure entertainment standpoint they way they wrote Skylar in the diner was PERFECT. same goes for the follow-up with marie.

having Skylar in the diner scene spill the beans and get played out by Hank would've been meh.

I'm more or less just a fan of the show...and having by far its most interesting character evade death/destruction by outfoxing everyone else has made for the most entertaining television.

Usually it's a simple tension/release thing... The protagonist hits a snag, comes up with a way to come out of it... it just feels good on a basic level to witnesses that process. With a lesser show, I'd be Team Walt too. But I've connected to this show and its characters on a weirdly human level, and so sometimes I find myself reacting as if I was living there in Albuquerque or even as a member of Walt's extended family.

So yeah, of course Walt and Skyler aren't gonna go, 'welp, we had a good run', and if they did it would certainly disappoint... But at the same time I'm like 'All you fuckers are all miserable, this is leading nowhere good, please end this already! Won't someone please think about the children?!'

and I'm sure that's by design.

Hank lost any good will from me after he beat the piss out of Jesse. Hard to play the morality card with a hot headed vigilante cop.

Klepto looney-ass Marie? Umm, no.

It's easy to lose your moral compass with this show cause it's basically Walt going up against drug lords and murderers and similarly all around shitty people (ie., Mike).

The show works as well as it does because they did a great job of humanizing Walt...and even if you're not outright rooting for him...there's still a part of you that rides for him even if you can't admit it.

Gus for the most part seemed to reward loyalty and generally be a "reasonable" boss, insofar as you could have one in that trade. Victor got sliced because he exposed himself at Gale's murder scene and could be easily traced back to the laundry.

Mike made the most of having a largely shitty job, and seemed to be a generally decent Grandpa.

Or... people who realize this is all make believe and thus find an intrinsic thrill in rooting for the bad guy to win because there's no actual consequences, only imaginary ones. There's no dilemma in rooting for a TV villain.

Obviously in real life, few would root for a guy like that. But it's a tv show.

You choose to view it through the lense of a realistic moral compass, and there's nothing wrong with that. Do you. Problem is, you seem to have lost touch with reality with your idiotic "who roots for this guy besides guys with revenge of the nerds fantasies?" quip.

I mean, where's the fun in watching the show using a real moral compass? Where's the escapism, the thrill, the fun, the excitement in that?

Since you clearly struggled to grasp a reason why people would root for such a monster, it was obvious that you needed to be reminded that this shit isn't actually real.

If you don't reach dumbass conclusions, you won't get such water-is-wet type responses, you won't get pissy about it, and we'll all get along just fine

Of course it can be fun rooting for the bad guy, but Breaking Bad is operating on a slightly different level than Grand Theft Auto 3 or Scarface.

Look, first couple seasons, I was Team Walt all the way. He was this bumbling underdog in over his head, trying to help his family, and yeah maybe getting his ego stroked a bit in the process but it was still at a manageable level more or less. It was innocent, in a way. If he killed someone, it was in self-defense, indirect, accidental, etc. and it happened to characters you barely knew. And he seemed just as horrified at his own actions as you were

It stopped being a "come up" story at some point, it seemed pretty evident to me that dude had become a monster... If we're talking about fun and escapism here I think personally I'll have more fun watching him lose at this point.

>You choose to view it through the lense of a realistic moral
>compass, and there's nothing wrong with that. Do you. Problem
>is, you seem to have lost touch with reality with your idiotic

You mad?

>I mean, where's the fun in watching the show using a real

>excitement in that?

This show can rip my guts out and still be fun. It's the kind of fun I have when I'm watching/reading/listening to anything that's well made. The content itself isn't necessarily the source of that fun, it lies in the execution. The "thrill" for me is that this is great fucking television

I guess my question to you would be, how can we be truly invested in a story if we don't care about the characters and world as if it is real? And without that investment, how great can your reward be?

>Since you clearly struggled to grasp a reason why people would
>root for such a monster, it was obvious that you needed to be
>reminded that this shit isn't actually real.

Clearly.

But okay, now that you've set me straight – I'm still not buying "it's imaginary" as a good reason to root for Walt. Hank is imaginary, too, right?

So rooting for *anybody* is investing a certain amount of yourself into the story. Maybe you're rooting for Walt by default because he's the main character, or maybe there's something in you that makes you want to see him win. And I'm just curious to know what that thing is.

And I wouldn't say Hank necessarily mirrors my real-life morality either, but he's just about the closest anchor I've got at this point. So I'm still not viewing this the same way I would if it was real life, but I'm definitely investing myself into it more than I would the average TV show, because I think the show has earned that level of investment.

>Hank is imaginary, too, right?

LOL@you not buying something that's a fact. Further, you're making a dense-as-hell connection. Being imaginary simply means that there are no real world consequences, therefore there's no *actual* moral issue in rooting for Walt. Saying "Hank is imaginary too!" as though that changes anything is absurd. The point is that whomever one chooses sides with, it's not real and there are no real moral consequences.

>So rooting for *anybody* is investing a certain amount of

To you I guess, but not to me. I love how you stay with this black and white perspective as though everyone watches tv the way you do.

Maybe you're rooting for Walt by

That's just plain old over-analyzing it. It's a tv show. I'd like to see the bad guy win. It's simple. There's no deep seated reason for that. Cry about it.

No, but it's clear that you're viewing it from a perspective of real world right and wrong, and you've definitely chosen- in your own words- your closest anchor. That's all good, I'm just saying that you're trying to paint everyone else into the same category as yourself

but I'm definitely investing

I love this show, I dunno about "investing myself" outside of my time. It's just a tv show to me.

>Sounds good you seem like a fun guy

I'm a real riot, a regular barrel of monkeys

>The point is that whomever one chooses sides with,

So all things being equal, why are we rooting for X or Y?

That's essentially all my original post boiled down to... WHO YOU WITH. It comes up with this show every now and again. Now that we're post-Garage Scene, to me the topic feels more relevant than ever.

You're the one came in here tracking shit all over the floor so don't put that on me.

>>So rooting for *anybody* is investing a certain amount of
>>yourself into the story.
>
>To you I guess, but not to me. I love how you stay with this

>way you do.

Well, no, but I will cop to one assumption though: I figured that since you're here, on a message board, still discussing the episodes well beyond their run time, that maybe you were invested enough that this type of topic would interest you.

Obviously it doesn't interest you, or else you wouldn't have replied so many times.

>Maybe you're rooting for Walt by

Well hold on now, I gave you an under-analyzing option, too. If you cheer for the main character by default because that's just how stories work, that's cool too. I mean, I think it's wrong in this case, but that's an opinion, not an attack on your character.

You always like to see the bad guy win? Or is it more of a novelty thing for you for BB? Or is it something about Walter White/Bryan Cranston that makes you feel this way?

My 'Revenge of the Nerds' comment aside, I promise I couldn't be less interested in internet fights. I just like opinions.

I'm sure everyone has their own reasons for why they root for whoever they root for. There's no one answer to that, and it's strange that you can't accept that.

>You're the one came in here tracking shit all over the floor
>so don't put that on me.

lol nah. Sorry, not the case. You're the guy with the clearly drawn lines on the subject, not I.

>Well, no, but I will cop to one assumption though: I figured
>that since you're here, on a message board, still discussing
>the episodes well beyond their run time, that maybe you were
>invested enough that this type of topic would interest you.

I'm investing time, as I already said. So.... yeah. Covered that.

>Obviously it doesn't interest you, or else you wouldn't have
>replied so many times.

LOL you really can't see beyond black and white, can you? I don't need to be hyper invested in the show as a morality play to be interested in discussing the show while chilling on my down time, but since you can't conceive of anything that doesn't fit your black and white notions of how human beings receive the shows they watch, I can see how you arrive at yet another bold conclusion.


>Well hold on now, I gave you an under-analyzing option, too.
>If you cheer for the main character by default because that's
>just how stories work, that's cool too. I mean, I think it's
>wrong in this case, but that's an opinion, not an attack on

It's not even that. I just like the character. It's not that complex, but again.... do you with that black & white nonsense.

>You always like to see the bad guy win? Or is it more of a
>novelty thing for you for BB? Or is it something about Walter
>White/Bryan Cranston that makes you feel this way?

See how you use the word "always"?

Yeah, you don't know anything but absolutes.

Sometimes I root for the bad guy. Sometimes I root for the good guy. I KNOW, I KNOW, that shit doesn't compute and your brain just short-circuited, but you'll recover. Promise I JUST WANT WALT TO WIN. It's that simple. I just like his character, and given that this shit is all make believe, I'm all in for the villain.

I dunno why it pains you that none of your assumed options apply all the time to everyone, but with a little effort you can overcome that disability. Just stop fighting the *fact* that people are different and varied and have myriad reasons why they like or dislike things. Once you come to terms with the fact that SOMETIMES it's really not all that deep and people aren't all that consumed by WHY they like something and just accept that they DO, you'll be a happier, much more fun person to be around. Until then, get some fiber in your diet. It helps.

>AS YOU'VE POINTED OUT ON THIS MESSAGE BOARD NUMEROUS TIMES

Yeah, covered that. Sorry.

If you simply just like the character, then there's your answer. It exists and you articulated it. We can move on now.

Better hope for your boy Walt's sake that Jesse holds up under questioning better than you do

In response to Reply # 132


  

          

>- Very dizzying episode, between Jesse's merry-go-round ride
>and Walt rolling those barrels outta his van.

I am curious how in the world they positioned the camera on that one shot when the barrel rolled out of the van without it breaking.

>- The reappearance of Todd has reminded me that there are
>actually worse creeps on this show than Walt

I think you and most folks feel this way because we the audience aren't given the benefit of seeing the show from Todd's point of view. Not to say I justify his actions at all, but he's far from the most psychopathic character on this show.

>- What do you make of Walt's offer to turn himself in? A rare
>moment of clarity/humility? A trick to see if Skyler had
>really kept quiet? Or was it just the concussion talking?

From what I remember, he was convinced Hank had flipped Skylar at this point and basically felt he had no more moves left. I know Walt is cunning and all, but it's hard for me to believe he would have the presence of mind to think of manipulating Skylar after coming out that heat stroke induced fainting spell.

Wasn't it Walt telling Jesse "I'm the silent partner. You handle the streets" in the RV?

so that now, if Jesse does spill his guts to Hank, he'll be in the streets again (not literally, I mean in the streets as in talking to the cops aka snitching)

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Skyler told Walt that Hank had been out all week, followed by Walt getting up from the dinner table. He goes in the bathroom and looks at that bottle of pills, then throws up. While he's throwing up, he looks up and notices that the book is gone. I don't get the pills. Seems like there was an emphasis to show it but I'm not sure what it means.

Walt vs Lydia & Todd's clan (Post 34). Walt vanishes, but Lydia wants him to come back and cook by any means necessary, got muscle power in Todd and company, takes Walt's family hostage and maybe kills Marie or Jesse to send a message.

...but having typed all that, it seems a bit ridiculous. I'm sure the writers would've came up with something better.

>OP-ED CONTRIBUTOR

I Have a Character Issue
By ANNA GUNN
Published: August 23, 2013

LOS ANGELES — PLAYING Skyler White on the television show “Breaking Bad” for the past five seasons has been one of the most rewarding creative journeys I’ve embarked on as an actor. But the role has also taken me on another kind of journey — one I never would have imagined.

My character, to judge from the popularity of Web sites and Facebook pages devoted to hating her, has become a flash point for many people’s feelings about strong, nonsubmissive, ill-treated women. As the hatred of Skyler blurred into loathing for me as a person, I saw glimpses of an anger that, at first, simply bewildered me.

For those unfamiliar with the show: Skyler is the wife of Walter White, a high-school chemistry teacher who, after learning he has lung cancer, begins cooking and selling methamphetamine to leave a nest egg for Skyler, their teenage son and their unborn daughter. After his prognosis improves, however, Walter continues in the drug trade — with considerable success — descending deeper and deeper into a life of crime.

When Skyler discovers what Walter has been up to, she tries to stop him, to no avail. She is outraged by the violence and destruction of the drug world, fearful for her children’s safety, disgusted by the money Walter brings in and undone by the lies and manipulation to which he subjects her.

Because Walter is the show’s protagonist, there is a natural tendency to empathize with and root for him, despite his moral failings. (That viewers can identify with this antihero is also a testament to how deftly his character is written and acted.) As the one character who consistently opposes Walter and calls him on his lies, Skyler is, in a sense, his antagonist. So from the beginning, I was aware that she might not be the show’s most popular character.

But I was unprepared for the vitriolic response she inspired. Thousands of people have “liked” the Facebook page “I Hate Skyler White.” Tens of thousands have “liked” a similar Facebook page with a name that cannot be printed here. When people started telling me about the “hate boards” for Skyler on the Web site for AMC, the network that broadcasts the show, I knew it was probably best not to look, but I wanted to understand what was happening.

A typical online post complained that Skyler was a “shrieking, hypocritical harpy” and didn’t “deserve the great life she has.”

“I have never hated a TV-show character as much as I hate her,” one poster wrote. The consensus among the haters was clear: Skyler was a ball-and-chain, a drag, a shrew, an “annoying bitch wife.”

I enjoy taking on complex, difficult characters and have always striven to capture the truth of those people, whether or not it’s popular. Vince Gilligan, the creator of “Breaking Bad,” wanted Skyler to be a woman with a backbone of steel who would stand up to whatever came her way, who wouldn’t just collapse in the corner or wring her hands in despair. He and the show’s writers made Skyler multilayered and, in her own way, morally compromised. But at the end of the day, she hasn’t been judged by the same set of standards as Walter.

As an actress, I realize that viewers are entitled to have whatever feelings they want about the characters they watch. But as a human being, I’m concerned that so many people react to Skyler with such venom. Could it be that they can’t stand a woman who won’t suffer silently or “stand by her man”? That they despise her because she won’t back down or give up? Or because she is, in fact, Walter’s equal?

It’s notable that viewers have expressed similar feelings about other complex TV wives — Carmela Soprano of “The Sopranos,” Betty Draper of “Mad Men.” Male characters don’t seem to inspire this kind of public venting and vitriol.

At some point on the message boards, the character of Skyler seemed to drop out of the conversation, and people transferred their negative feelings directly to me. The already harsh online comments became outright personal attacks. One such post read: “Could somebody tell me where I can find Anna Gunn so I can kill her?” Besides being frightened (and taking steps to ensure my safety), I was also astonished: how had disliking a character spiraled into homicidal rage at the actress playing her?

But I finally realized that most people’s hatred of Skyler had little to do with me and a lot to do with their own perception of women and wives. Because Skyler didn’t conform to a comfortable ideal of the archetypical female, she had become a kind of Rorschach test for society, a measure of our attitudes toward gender.

I can’t say that I have enjoyed being the center of the storm of Skyler hate. But in the end, I’m glad that this discussion has happened, that it has taken place in public and that it has illuminated some of the dark and murky corners that we often ignore or pretend aren’t still there in our everyday lives.

Anna Gunn is an actress.

167. "I've wondered this since season 4"
In response to Reply # 165


  

          

and i'm glad she wrote her perspective on it. i guess this is the fate of any humorless female character, but i still think people should sympathize just because of who walt is. her haters point out that she's not perfect but her crimes pale in comparison to his, and she only starts to realize the extent of walt's ego/rage in season 4. she also gets knocked down for being hypocritical or bitchy. that's fine to point out, and i agree the character isn't likeable, but those same people are probably cheering for a guy who attempted to murder a child.

in season 3 her sins added up a little (though that was really just to keep walt in check), but when walt became a full-out lunatic in season 4, people should definitely sympathize. she's stuck. if she comes forward, she's admitting to money laundering and her kids are without parents (that's if walt doesn't kill her). her only option is to stand pat when the whole thing is clearly crumbling and she has to live in fear 24/7.

i've actually heard people put themselves in skyler's shoes and say "well if i had all that money i'd just go along for the ride." no, you'd flip out if you found out that your significant other got the money from cooking meth. everyone would. especially if it was preceded by months of lying. and even with all that money, you still have to sleep next to a monster every night.

Gee, I'm glad this fact eventually dawned on her.

As an artist, if you're able to provoke such emotion from people then you're doing something right...and should be flattered.

when everyone reacts SO negatively to a character that's intended to inspire some sympathy, it's gotta be a tough pill to swallow initially. especially where (as she pointed out) people often say they hate anna, not skyler.

I'm not sure I agree with this. Her character is not written to be likeable or to garner sympathy. She's lacks any redeeming qualities and she's an accomplice to a drug lord.

> especially where (as she pointed out)

You cannot attempt to rationalize the thought process of the 1% lunatic fringe.

Congrats, you've done a terrific acting job and your show is a monumental success. Unfortunately, this has apparently brought some of the crazies out. I don't think we need to focus on this sad minority of people and subsequently investigate it as some sort of larger societal issue.

as i said earlier, the character's not likeable, but that doesn't mean she doesn't deserve some sympathy. we've seen walt grow into a monster and dwarf any bad thing she's done, trapping her in an impossible situation. and while people aren't really "cheering" for walt anymore, the anti-walt sentiment is nowhere near as strong as the anti-skyler one. walt's redeeming qualities went out the window a long time ago, yet he's still more likeable? there's something wrong with our perception of them, and it can't just be chalked up to the writing.

she's just saying it affected her. what's wrong about that? and it's easier to say you shouldn't let your work affect your personal life, but that's way harder in practice, and i'm sure it's even harder when your work is seen/judged every week.

So fictitious druglords and master criminals and all around badass mutherfuckers have never been idolized in tv/movie/book history?

Has Skylar pulled some cool shit in this show compared to Walt? She's boring, cold, bitchy, has zero sex appeal, cheated on Walt (before she knew about the meth, IIRC). She's a former accountant and her current claim to badassery is running Walt's dirty money through a car wash. Her character was written to be MEH.


>she's just saying it affected her. what's wrong about that?

Affecting her? Sure, I'm cool with that. I support her desire to feel safe.

Extrapolating the 1% lunatic fringe into something much much bigger? Getting pissy at fans because her FICTITIOUS character isn't the cool kid in the lunch room? No, it's dumb and she comes off as whiney.

didn't even imply that. i'm just comparing these two characters. i'm fine with people liking him/not liking her, what i don't understand is why they HATE her when she's mostly helped that druglord. plus it's just weird to hate a character who is living in fear. why are people cheering for her eventual comeuppance more than walt? "i hate cheaters", "she helped walt", and "she's kinda bitchy" etc. are all awful explanations that don't really hold up when examined.

cmon, she didn't know walt was in the meth business, but if anyone saw their significant other act the way he did for the months leading up to that they wouldn't just sit there and take it. cheating isn't really "cool" ever, but she knew something was up and gave him multiple chances to be honest with her. there's a reason she announced it to him so casually. it was just a move to even the scales in their relationship.

plus the affair did lead to her two badass moments: "I fucked Ted" and "Did he tell you about my affair?", but i digress.

i guess i just ready it as her weighing in on an ongoing discussion, i don't think she came across as whiny.

she's spent plenty of time opposing him too.

Because Walt is the show. He puts asses in the seats. Skylar is cranky and expendable.

As far as people wanting her to suffer or die or hating her or whatever...I don't know. I'm not big on blogs and this is the only messageboard I frequent so I don't know how much of the majority that opinion pertains to. Is this similar to the 1% lunatic fringe that wants to see ANNA GUNN die in a pool of her own blood? Honestly, I can't say I've ever cared much about how others view a fictitious supporting tv character.

"i hate cheaters", "she
>helped walt", and "she's kinda bitchy" etc. are all awful
>explanations that don't really hold up when examined.

They're all perfectly good explanations for her not bringing something good to the table. You said it yourself...you can't find any reason why people should like her character. The convo ends there, IMO.

>cmon, she didn't know walt was in the meth business, but if

I'm not suggesting to fry her over it. It's merely part of her characters resume and it did nothing to endear her to the audience.

>plus the affair did lead to her two badass moments: "I fucked
>Ted" and "Did he tell you about my affair?", but i digress.

Don't see how that was badass...certainly not in the realm of cooking meth and killing drug lords, lol.

A smart person realizes there are myriad personalities and reasons why people think and/or react the way they do, but she chose the intellectually dishonest path of "oh they must just hate to see women who aren't subservient and don't take abuse from their men.".

In response to Reply # 165


  

          

Carmela is an interesting comparison, as she not only enjoyed, but also purposely wielded the bit of power she being married to Tony Soprano gave her, all while shitting all over Tony for his complete lack of moral fiber. He pointed it out himself- she had a chance to marry someone else and live the sort of middle class life she always claimed she'd be perfectly happy with, but it was obvious that such an existence would not be enough.

Skylar is different in that she showed herself to be OK with a mundane way of life, but she still chose to take part in it while feigning some moral high ground she really has little footing on.

If the only conclusion she can arrive at is that this is due to a desire for women to be silent, do as they're told, and stand by their men, then she really doesn't get it.

She made a statement that shows that she DOES grasp the bigger picture,but she kinda glosses over it in passing.

Naturally, people will feel more empathetic toward the main character by default.... no shit. Which means, she's not going to be judged by the same standard as Walt, also by default. She's being judged by her decision to participate while shitting on him for his actions.

When people choose to participate, they lose all moral high ground to admonish their counterparts. Yeah, Walt's the bad guy, but he's the main character we're all following through this and there's a natural tendency to root for the main character despite his flaws.

As far as the loonies talking about killing Anna Gunn, the weirdos who cannot separate the character from the actress, that's another issue entirely.

168. "Dear Science,"
In response to Reply # 166


  

          

"Actual Science" doesn't -- and shouldn't -- diminish the power of this show's storytelling over the past 5 1/2 seasons

I didn't see the show, but if I'm guessing correctly, I'm sure Vince said something to the effect of, "hey, we don't claim that this stuff is 100% scientifically accurate, we're just trying to tell great and exciting and compelling stories"

"Logic" loving cats here will swear that he's "copping pleas," but he's right, the show has no responsibility to be *completely* accurate, just *reasonably accurate*, and for the most part, it is

One could even use the "who cares, the show's the shit" argument if they so desired

Not me, though

That said, this is the creative era of

R.I.P. Suspension of Disbelief

Vince Gilligan himself on one of the early offical Breaking Bad podcasts wanted the MythBusters folks to test out some of the science-based capers and he repeated this on the episode that aired. In my original post, I don't recall complaining about the show being weaker because it wasn't totally scientifically accurate, but I was kinda taken back that Vince was kinda stubborn when the stunts didn't hold up to the tests the MythBusters crew ran.

topic to bring up in light of the show's realism. but really, i was trying to make sense of Zoo's present comments about mythbusters and didn't know what he was referencing, then i saw that reply and had a moment of clarity.

there's probably an unspoken/unwritten code somewhere where producers aren't supposed to back down from castigations of their life's work. like a bear protecting her cub. he's smart enough to know whats going on but he has to put on a mask anyway.

Walt's hubris is still allowing him to THINK that he'd dictating the terms of how this shit is going to go down. And as long as he thinks that, he THINKS he's leaving Jessie out of it entirely, in order to help/save/atone/whatever.

He needs Jesise to be out of the picture entirely for that Hail Mary of a DVD to work, however. He's the one living person that Hank could easily connect to Heisenwalt (Lydia and Todd are out there too, but Hanks not up on them like he is Pinkman).

Has he just been a metaphor for Ghostface this whole time?

I'm guessing when Jesse sees Holly there, he'll stop short of burning the house down (since we know he doesn't.) But Walt can no longer even pretend it's safe for his family.

That poor waiter was so enthusiastic. And he's not even going to get a tip.

Marie's actually right. Hank completely fucked himself by not going back to the DEA with Walt's identity immediately.

Give an Emmy to the casting director now. Todd's Aryan uncle and friends look like genuine dirtbags. Not TV dirtbags.

Disagree with this part:

>Marie's actually right. Hank completely fucked himself by not
>going back to the DEA with Walt's identity immediately.

Woulda panned out the same way. Walt paying for his medical bills would have ended up fucking him no matter what happened.

The secondary guy with the mustache has made a major living off playing ancillary dickholes. I was damn happy to see him.
