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