    He broke bad in the show, not prior to it. He didn't do any of this stuff before he had cancer. He was a good family man, teacher, etc. You're using stuff he did after he was building an empire for his family on borrowed time to think about what he did thirty years earlier.

    Not sure if Walt really intended to kill Mike. He just got pissed off cause Mike refused to help him.

    Yeah, that's how I read it too. Still does not mean they "stole" his life work from him. I was half-joking with "inner psychopath" though.

    Spoiler :

    How did he torment Skyler and why was he a crappy father?
    Also, what did you mean by the last one?

    Spoiler :
    In the opening they showed him having an award for participating in novel prize winning research. Why? Because he didn't get full credit for the research he had. He said so in the show, and Gretchen all but confirmed she took his research out of spite. So he lost millions, if not billions, from the Gray Matter screwjob. His children's birthright.

    I suspect they didn't screw him over but, due to his ego, Walt needs someone (other than himself) to blame.

    My speculations on final episode

    Spoiler :

    Who lives:
    Jessie, Walter Jr, Holly, Saul, Gretchen, Marie, Lydia
    Who dies:
    Walter, Todd, Skyler, Elliot, Jack Welker

    Additional Predictions:
    Saul actually does open a Cinnabon in Omaha which Walter visits in the beginning
    Walter figures out some way of dumping a lot of money into Gretchen and Elliot's rehab clinics
    Elliot gets the ricin
    Todd kills Skyler
    Lydia ends up covered in blood

    Interesting. Although it's supposed that Walter will die for sure I hope he won't, cause that's too predictable. I think Walter and Jesse will eventually escape and begin everything again. Final poster with their RV makes me think so.

    Spoiler :
    I don't buy it, Breaking Bad isn't an everything is going to be okay sort of show. Besides, Jesse and Walt can't go back to those RV days, they've changed way too much. A simple RV isn't going to be enough to satisfy Walt, and Jesse knows that going down that route would lead to nothing but destruction.

    I certainly can think of many unpredictable things that could occur, a few I've considered:
    Walt ends up surviving but alone (or worse with Todd)
    Holly gets kidnapped by Todd, eventually getting killed
    Marie does something absolutely insane that alters everything

    But in the end, we're just going to have to wait and see.

    Wow, for once a show has an series ender that I am satisfied with. No "Lost" here, that's for sure!

    Spoiler :
    Very happily wrong in my prediction of who all would die. Also very glad that Jesse got to be the one to off Todd. The use of laser pens on Gretchen and Elliot was brilliant.

    I got one prediction correct.

    Spoiler :
    That the ricin was meant for Lydia, after she asked for another Stevia packet last week.

    Ha, noone guessed what will happen in the finale. I hoped that Walter and Jesse will escape (and that was close, in fact) but Perfection guy was right, it isn't an everything is going to be okay sort of show. I was a little bit unsatisfied that everything went smoothly, especially assasination of white supremacists. But what puzzled me the most - Todd behaved TOO strangely, considering that he was an "ice cold killa".

    Spoiler :
    I still don't quite get why Todd let Skyler live in the penultimate episode. Especially since he was apparently there under orders from his unrequited love Lydia, and had heretofore shown no glimmer of conscience whatsoever.

    I like to think she survived. Walt telling her she was poisoned gave her an opportunity to receive treatment and given her talent for avoiding certain death, maybe she's still walking around somewhere.

    We should be collectively ashamed for not guessing what Walt had in mind for G&E.
    That was kind of obvious, but apparently not.

    This sort of clever writing I like!

    Well, it was pretty obvious given how they dwelled on it.

    I was really into the show during the first two seasons. Lost interest in the third season. Watched a few episodes early in this season. Then I got hooked big time during the AMC weekend marathon. I must have watched 10 hours since Friday between football games. The finale didn't disappoint.

    The ending was very satisfying.

    Spoiler :
    Jesse lived and could have his own show.....Maybe he'd go to El Paso and meet the blond chick from "the Bridge".

    It's not a spoiler at all. You know he's going to die from the first episode.

    It is an anti-spoiler. It tells you things you already know.

    Spoiler tags are polite but if you haven't watched the show and don't want to chance any spoilers then you probably should avoid reading a thread about said show on the internet.
