Although I had swore I would wait till the final episode Sunday to watch all as a marathon, which I always prefer on BB, I just could not help myself and watched all yesterday, leaving the mid-season final for Sunday ..
I don't think as Walt watched Mike die he was thinking so much about the list as he was feeling some last shred of humanity coming out over having killed Mike ..
Walt has changed so much since the beginning .. or has he .. ?? Regrets over the "GreyMatter" company and the loss of that status and money .. cancer deals him a raw hand .. years as a mild mannered Chemistry teacher .. son with cerebral palsy .. over 50 now with no real legacy .. he even tells Jesse, cooking is all he has left ..
When Walt said he is the best cook in the United States, he was likely right .. and he knows it .. and so, he has decided that's his legacy .. and that same way of thinking goes back to Gus .. where Walt felt he was in the fist of another and not in control of his destiny ..
The continued imagination being used by Vince Gilligan is just incredible to watch .. the train hiest, the home tenting scenario this season, wow .. I'll never see a tented house the same ..
I'm still thinking as I mentioned last year, Walt will go down hard at the end .. the main problem is he has failed to build an organization, a company if you will .. it's still just him for the most part .. if he were to become the Kingpin he wants to be, then, by now he would have an organization built around him ..
With Mike's death, the conscience of the show has died as well, so I'm guessing things are going to get darker and darker .. I don't think an attempt at killing off Mikes crew while in prison is in the cards .. Walt is obviously on the run at some point .. alone, grew a full beard, paranoid as shown in the early scene ..
The kid Todd is going to play in this as well .. he's not stupid and in a short time, he's worked his way into Walt's trust .. again, because he was about the only alternative, since Walt has no crew .. Todd is unstable to put it mildly .. remember the trophy he kept from the dirtbiker kid ..
Walt: Jesse, you asked me if I was in the meth business or the money business. Neither. I'm in the empire business.
Walter: You all know exactly who I am. Say my name.
Declan: Do what? I don't...I don't have a damn clue who you are.
Walter: Yeah you do. I'm the cook. I'm the man who killed Gus Fring.
Declan: Bull****. Cartel got Fring.
Walter: You sure? That's right. Now say my name
. Declan: You're Heisenberg.
Walter: You're ******* right.
