Chemistry is the study of change. Growth, decay, and transformation. Throughout Breaking Bad, we see a whole lot of change. We see a whole lot of growth, decay, and transformation. And of course, we see a whole lot of chemistry. Now that the series is over, I can officially say that this show is perfect. There is absolutely no film, book, or other TV series like it. Everything about this finale is perfect. And why was it perfect? Because the change we've seen for five seasons, has finally come full circle.
There's not much I can say without spoiling it, which I don't want to do it. But what I do want to say, is that if you have not yet watched this show, than you must. The show is brilliant, monumental, inspirational, and overall perfection. I loved each and every moment, and it was very bittersweet when the show had its final cut to black.
This episode was created perfectly. Each and every loose end was tied up. Every character ends up where they should, getting the perfect closure. This episode was a perfect blend of the dark comedy of season one and the intense, emotional drama of the most recent episodes. The acting was outstanding, the highlight, of course, being Bryan Cranston himself. However, the thing I loved most about it was that it did not rely on surprising twists or a non-ambiguous end to make it so great. Yes, it was a bit predictable. We all saw a lot of that coming. But is that a bad thing? No. It's a good thing. Because that means the series ended exactly how it should have.
The first 80% or so of the episode was a bit slow, yes, but it did a perfect job of tying up all of the loose ends. It was all necessary. Nothing was filler. And of course, the climax of the episode was great. Violent and creative. The final scene was perfect. Very appropriate way to end it. It all played out exactly how I wanted it to. No disappointment, only satisfaction.
I'm done talking about this episode. It's the perfect end to the perfect show. This entire series was brilliant. Incredibly acted by each and every member of the cast. A beautifully written story throughout the show. Phenomenal directing, unique cinematography, and just about everything else....it all makes a brilliant, mind-blowing, and perfect show.
Thank you, to AMC, the whole cast, the whole crew, and of course, the mastermind himself, Vince Gilligan, for making Bad so good. This show is more addicting and pure than the crystal meth it is about. I'm so glad I got to experience this perfect show with an ending that left only one unanswered question: What am I supposed to do now?
