HEISENBERG

Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,

Tonight is the final episode of Breaking Bad. I don't think I've been this excited about a TV show since they caught the one-armed man on The Fugitive. I suppose some of you don't remember that show and you think The Fugitive is an old movie starring Harrison Ford. That's okay. Perhaps you didn't experience the joy of growing up during The Dark Ages when we had black-and-white televisions.

The Wizard of Oz was on TV once each year, and no, there wasn't any such thing as cable. I had no idea what the big deal was when Dorothy opened the door of her house and entered Munchkinland.

Anyway, I've read some of the online blabbering speculation about what will happen tonight. Everyone seems so concerned about Walt.



What will happen to Walt? Most think it's a foregone conclusion that Walt will die.

I, on the other hand, think that Walt might surprise us by making it. Breaking Bad is a show that's always been full of surprises.

The character I'm worried about (sob sniffle) is Jesse Pinkman.


Walt has manipulated Jesse all these years, but even when Jesse followed through on Walt's commands to do very, very bad stuff, Jesse didn't want to do the bad stuff. He's lost everyone he ever loved, including his former chemistry teacher who became his father figure.

But somehow, through everything, Jesse Pinkman has managed to retain his humanity. Bitch.

God bless you, Jesse Pinkman. I want things to go your way for a change.


Infinities of love and a sob and a sniffle,

Janie Junebug

P.S. I wonder how many times Jesse Pinkman has said "bitch" over the course of five seasons.


From IMBD:

[repeated line]
Jesse Pinkman: Bitch!

  1. Listen Bitch, this is a great post. I'm with you from every angle (except The Fugitive...I've only ever seen the Harrison Ford version). I'm so, so worried about Jesse. I'm completely excited and sad all mixed together. But my ass is going to be settled in on the couch tonight and I'm turning off my phone. No one is getting between me and the BB finale. Amen. Bitch.

  2. We are still on season 2... since I am also from the semi dark ages and there's no way in heck I'll pay the highway robbery they want for anything over basic cable. :)

  3. This old broad remembers THE FUGITIVE (I even had lunch with David Janssen once) but I've never seen BREAKING BAD!! Should I watch it on Netflix?

    1. I am so jealous that you had lunch with David Janssen. Did you go to a hotel afterwards for a little afternoon delight? I think you'd probably like Breaking Bad. It has a lot of action, but it's very dialog driven. You seem to be able to handle violence and naughty words.

  4. I just skimmed over this because Mrs. C. and I have finally decided to watch Breaking Bad when it shows up on On Demand.

    1. You don't quite dare to call me the b-word, do you? Be careful about what you reveal. Some people have to wait for DVDs and Netflix Streaming.

    2. Sorry, didn't think of that. I hate spoilers. Feel free to delete my comment if you think it appropriate.

    3. I don't think you revealed that much.

  7. I stopped watching after Jessie was doing heroin with his girlfriend? Maybe? There was also an incident in the fancy new meth digs that grossed me out, and I can't remember what it was. I liked the finale. Vince had been watching season 5 so he caught me up a bit. I'll need to read the episode summaries.

    1. The girlfriend who choked on her own vomit during the heroin phase? Her name was Jane. I think I might watch the whole series again from the beginning on Netflix Streaming because I know I've forgotten some details.

    2. I feel a poem brewing in your head...warn the masses...its not about you.

    3. It's never about me. Nothing is about me.

    4. *it's*

      I don't want to be the reason for a grammar post.

    5. You'll never bring out The Grammar Bitch in me.

  8. You know I don't want to know and have to wait for it to come out on Netflix--but I have been very concerned about our boy, Jesse, too. Don't tell me.

    I'm old enough to remember The Fugitive--but not old enough to have been racing home for Lucy's giving birth to Little Ricky--LOL! Mary Tyler Moore, Mash...and so many other shows that didn't have a final episode. They used to just stop--bam! Leave It To Beaver, Father Knows Best, The Nelsons, Donna Reed--just vanished from the tube one day. I like it better when they have final episodes. :)

    1. You can watch it from the beginning on DVD. It's a brilliant show.
