    I'd argue it's more popular than it's ever been. The red pill s*** is reaching a new level of popularity right now

  • I love how in the pilot, the light is wide and open but going downwards. And they鈥檙e also mostly in the light.

    And in the last episode, the light is cut off with prison bars but it鈥檚 going upwards. And they鈥檙e mostly in the dark

    I guess there's really so little that's actually said in these final scenes that we really just bring our own ideas and baggage to it.

    I often subscribe to the idea that you've gotta show things going right before you can effectively show things going wrong. I remember people saying after episode 11 that Nippy was unnecessary, because episode 11 showed him pulling schemes (the ones that "matter") with Jeff anyway. To me, though, we needed to see Gene 'win' with something closer to a 'harmless' crime in order to really add weight to the darker scheme he started to pull in ep 11, which ultimately fails and becomes his undoing.

    What I'm getting at is that, for me at least, the scene with Jimmy and Kim smoking in the interrogation room holds positive connotations, and cutting to black on that would have felt like, in some cosmic way - not necessarily literally, for logistical reasons - they were back in each others' lives.

    The last scene then brings you back to earth, and feels more like a parting note not just for the characters, but for the show as well. Plus we get that gorgeous shot of the two of them separated by the fences, which directly evokes the shot of them in Fun and Games in the parking garage (as well as the shot with Mike and Nacho's dad) - their previous goodbye.

    I do get where you're coming from now I've had a day to think about it all. Moved from they 100% should have ended it on the prior shot to now feeling conflicted.

    Totally agree about what you said on everyone just brings their own ideas and baggage into interpreting things like this.

    I never quite saw it so bleakly that they're gonna be out of each others lives. To me it felt like this was an acknowledgement from Kim that Jimmy had done the right thing and she was proud of him and ultimately always will have immense love for him. I didn't see it as a 'you're in here now and I'm out there so this is a final farewell'. Can see them maintaining a great friendship.

    But I do get what you mean about it perhaps feeling too much of a positive connotation to end on them sharing the same space. Perhaps that final, bitter reminder was needed.

    Ultimately i'm probably just a little mad cause, as beautiful as the last shot was, I loved seeing them leaning against that grimy prison wall with the light faintly streaming in. Just felt perfect to fade to black.

    And good pick up on the Mike and Nacho's dad comparison. Had slipped my mind.

    I'm so happy Walt's last scene is him being an obnoxious scumbag lmao. Hopefully that makes some people realize he's not this 100% alpha male or whatever

    People thought Walt was an Alpha? he's the exact opposite he left Gray Matter cause of his insecurities

    Ah okay. I do see where they're coming from but yeah I dunno still. Think the viewer is intelligent enough to understand the gravity of it all without really having to hammer it home again like that. Although perhaps not every viewer is.

    And yeah no she ain't but phones exist

    Had they not emphasized it Reddit woulda been creating fan fic of them having dates every Friday, Kim bringing Chinese take out and wine and them watching old movies on her phone and s***

  • That one scene in final episode reminded me of classic Avengers shouting: Endgame

  • I'm surprised how in this show Kim and Jimmy turned into psychopaths like Gus Fring and Hector Salamanca in just six seasons. Although, it's kinda weird how any possible sympathy for Saul was crashed as one of the last things he tried to do was robbing a dude with a cancer.

    I assumed that was her last time visiting Jimmy. Her not returning the finger guns was a sign to me that the relationship was over and they both finally got closure and can move on.

    I'm thinking of starting a rewatch around mid October. Canadian Thanksgiving weekend probably. Go BCS up to the last few black and white episodes, then jump into BB, then finish BCS.

    exactly how I plan to do it

    I literally remember nothing from seasons 1-5 outside vague storylines

    Same. I was shook when I was looking up how many episodes Lalo was in. Season 5 was his only full season. I thought he showed up midseason 3.
    And then I barely remember BB at all. I wasn't the biggest fan of the show. Thought it was cool but not great like everyone says. But I've watched a couple clips over the past few weeks and it seems a lot better than I remember

  • Wow beautiful ending tbh not many people can say it but Vince gilligan my god dude twice !!!!!!

    So why people arguing it would be bad if Saul got 7 years

    bc Saul got down to 7 years by being Saul. he tells a corroborated crybaby twist version of his hand in Breaking Bad鈥檚 events (in front of Marie, like a scumbag) and scams the opposition, free to get away with it yet again. Slippin鈥 Jimmy, Saul, Gene, whoever - he鈥檚 done it again. but I think at this point, he鈥檚 starting to ask himself why, and what happens next.

    From his early 20s conning ppl, to the Howard prank, to seeking out Walt鈥檚 business when he didn鈥檛 need to, to robbing a dude with cancer, we鈥檝e seen this guy make the wrong choice every single time, sometimes for the right reasons, sometimes even getting rewarded for making the wrong choice. But every time after, he鈥檚 been empty. This time, Jimmy takes responsibility for everything he鈥檚 done in his life and the consequences that come with that. 7 years because of a lie wouldn鈥檛 have taught Jimmy s***. It鈥檚 what he鈥檚 always done. But owning up to it all is the first step we see in him towards genuine change since he became a lawyer before the show even started
