Breaking Bad Finale! • After 5 seasons, and 60 plus episodes Breaking Bad comes to a brilliant end! “I did it for me. I was good at it. I was alive!” -Walter white. Powerful words from a man who found out he was dieing from Cancer, and just wanted to provided for his family after he was gone. Produced & written by Vince Gilligan and his team, Breaking bad took us on a emotional Roller Coaster ride with plenty of ups and downs for its viewers. For a long time you wanted to see Walter White (Bryan Cranston) a chemistry teacher-turned meth-cook get away with all he has done, after all the trouble and pain he and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) went trough to cook their special brand of Methamphetamine you wished them the best, you wanted them to win! And at one point walt was “Gliding Over All” but at a cost.
All the lies and pain and death that was the by-product of Walter’s success in the drug making business came back on walter destroying everything he had , including his soul. The lovable man we cheered for turned to a monster, someone we even hated. But even as the world around him began to implode, crumble to dust, Walter remembered why he did all the bad things he did, he clung to the one thing he promised to himself, to provide for his family. Family is all that mattered.
A truly Great Television Show!
