^Alternatively, Walt could

You could say he really is out there to prove his "White Supremacy".

Why would he do this?

Ricin is a slow-acting poison. Shit, Walter is more likely to get killed by his cancer after taking ricin than by the ricin itself.

Spin off idea for BB 20 years down the line:

SPOILER: Show
Lydia's daughter, now orphaned, comes after Jesse and the remaining White family members for revenge.


Really though, that was a pretty fantastic conclusion.

I think I've figured something out.

Breaking Bad  SPOILER: Show
So there's been a lot of discussion over the meaning of the last episode's title, "Felina". Some see it as an anagram for "finale", others see the elements iron (Fe), lithium (Li) and sodium (Na) and made "Blood, Meth and Tears" out of it. "Felina" is also the name of a character in the Marty Robbins song El Paso, which plays in the beginning of the episode. The story from the song can be connected to the plot of the latter part of the show.

I can't concentrate enough to write out a full analysis (lab report to finish by noon tomorrow) so I'll just mention this: The "Felina" of the song represents the myriad meth labs Walt has cooked in throughout the show. Now read through the lyrics of the song and see if that makes sense.

Awesome ending.

Loved the flashback to

SPOILER: Show
Jessie making his wood shop project he talked about a few seasons back. The jump cut to the present almost made me fucking bawl.


Bravo Vince & cast & staff. This more than makes up for the craptastic Dexter finale last week.

Now that I'm thinking about it, does anyone else find it kind of weird that throughout the whole series Jesse and Flynn never share even a single scene together?

@TKH Not really. I think the whole point was that Flynn never once came into contact with that world directly.

I don't know, I would have guessed Flynn would at least bump into Jesse, a dude that has actually been to his house a few times, before meeting both Gus and Saul.

The Wire - Season 4

Now this is what I'm talking about. THIS is the show I've been hearing so many good things about.

The writers must have been firing on all cylinders here, because this was a pretty damn awesome season. Whereas previous Seasons have the issue of too many characters, here the cast is pretty evenly woven into the story. There's nothing to be trimmed; they all have something to contribute.

What helps particularly is the fact that all the plot points connect back to the school in someway directly. Compared to something like Season 2 where the Shipyard docks plot and the Barksdale plot were only loosely, everything nicely converges together here in Season 4. The relationship between politics, the school system, the drug trade, and the police is very well put together and intertwined.

Characters also change and develop here as well! From old characters like Bodie and Prez (Thank god they made him a teacher, even if he ends up with the position under questionable circumstances) to the newer kids like Michael and his friends. Hell even Marlow and his crew actually seem like defined characters to some extent now, as opposed to whatever it was they were back in Season 3.

And thank god for McNulty being written out of most of the Season. His character hadn't really gone anywhere since Season 1, so it was nice to see him take a more passive role in the story. When he finally does become relevant toward the end again, it feels more natural, and like his character s doing something again for once.

I don't really have much energy to do a longer write-up, but I'll just summarize by saying that Season 4 really does make it seem like all the pieces matter. If all five seasons of The Wire were at least this good (Sadly this is not the case), then the show might really deserve all of its accolades.

Breaking Bad S5

A bit predictable but like the rest of the show so well executed and conclusive that it was one of the most satisfying endings to any kind of show I've watched in a long, long time.

Agents of SHIELD.

They dropped the ball on the Avengers references, this time. And the Quinn / Graviton arch was retarded. Quinn is bad because he's addicted to exploiting opportunities? Graviton's origin was him falling into a pool of gravity fuel? Bleh.

Starting Justified season 2. I watched the first one a little less than 2 years ago, but kinda swept it under the rug due to hype for season 5 of Breaking Bad. It's really good so far. Here's hoping I can catch up in time for the new season.

Enter The Void

It's much better if you imagine the protagonist as Oz.
