All bad things come to an end.

This penultimate episode is called “Granite State”, which is the nickname of New Hampshire. Know what New Hampshire’s motto is? “Live free or die”, which is also the name of the first episode from this season. Vince, you master crafter, you. In other news, “Live free or die” is Walt and Jesse’s new motto as well. CRINGE.
In case you were wondering, the title of the Episode, Ozymandias, refers to a poem of the same name about an ancient, long-forgotten king who had the hubris to think he and his empire were invincible. Oh God. ::dons helmet and other protective gear:: Let’s watch this, bitch!
All those bad things you feared and hoped and dreaded and anticipated happening as Breaking Bad marched toward its series finale? Now they’re starting to happen. ::has Ativan and Captain Morgan at the ready::
Hark, who are those unlikely heroes appearing on the horizon? Why it’s Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy, come to save the day. And by “Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy”, I of course mean “Hank and Jesse”. Wait, what now?
All hell breaks loose as Walt’s retirement plans are ruined as certain facts come to light by those around him. He’s not going down without a fight, though. Honestly, it’s like Game of Thrones if the Iron Throne was in Albuquerque.
John Peters, you know, the
farmer old guy who cleans the WalMart parking lot every morning, is up before dawn as usual, ready to start his sad truck to begin his sad day. What a glorious surprise when he finds a wad of money on the sidewalk, and another! And another! He follows this trail of tasty crumbs until he comes upon Jesse’s empty car in a park, complete with two gym bags full of cash lying in plain view in the front seat. And where’s Jesse? Lying on a merry-go-round that’s slowly spinning round and round just like the existential black thoughts in his head. Poor babs. ::does not even think about having sex with him on that merry-go-round to make him feel better::
This week on Breaking Bad: Walt enjoys his retirement from the meth industry by spending more time with his children and volunteering at the local SPCA so he can help abandoned kittens. Hahahaha. Just kidding.
