“Breaking Bad” finale parties will be littering the nation as one of the most anticipated finales since “Sopranos” airs tonight. According to the Hollywood Reporter on Sept. 29, AMC has sold out of commercial airtime and spoilers are few and far between as the “Breaking Bad” finale is treated as sacred among the fans. Is the show going to play out their finale as they have all the other episodes? Will it be a total shocker that no one saw coming?
Tonight Walter White’s fate will be revealed and it looks as if this will start in the state of New Hampshire. This is where last week’s episode left Walt waiting for the FBI, which he had beckoned. “Fox and Friends Weekend” talked about the “Breaking Bad” finale and what viewer’s should not expect tonight. For one thing, it won’t end with Walt waking up from a bad dream, shaking it off and then heading out to teach a class at the high school.
While this would not only be a let-down to the fans, it’s because this has been done once before on TV that AMC’s “Breaking Bad” can’t do it again according to “Fox and Friends Weekend” on Sunday. Bob Newhart used the waking up from a bad dream for the finale of his “Bob Newhart Show,” which was set in Vermont.
The debate is still on about the “Sopranos” finale on whether Tony got shot or not at the end when the screen went dark. Many say when the screen went black, this was an indication of Tony taking a bullet to the head and dying. The viewer was left to decide how that show ended by using their imagination.
Time Magazine offers up the reasons that “Breaking Bad” is considered one of the best shows, if not the best show to ever grace the TV screen. First of all it’s the uncommon ability of the directors to couple great acting with unprecedented visual effects that makes this a show that satisfies more than one of your senses.
The story-line itself is also something that was interesting from day one. A high school chemistry teacher, who is also a family man, somehow discovers that inner monster partially fueled by greed. Walt goes from unassuming nerd-like citizen to one of the FBI’s most-wanted men during an escalation of crime.
The irony of a brilliant man of chemistry earning a pittance of a salary teaching young minds growing into a multimillionaire using his brilliance for crime is also some food for thought. The show did a wonderful job at showing how someone as good natured as Walter White broke bad. The threat of dying from cancer also played a major part of his life of crime. He knew all along that he wouldn't be around long enough to face the music of the consequences. Even though at one point his cancer went into remission, he knew the odds of it coming back.
The show took the viewers through the many detailed stages of Walt’s rise to the top of this criminal empire to his fast-paced demise. Tonight’s finale should tie up the loose ends with Walt, Skyler, Jesse, Marie and the White children. What that is going to look like is still anybody’s guess!
"Breaking Bad" show's finale airs tonight, Sunday Sept. 29, on AMC at 9 p.m. ET. The finale episode of this show is called "Felina."
