Last night's episode of "Breaking Bad" showed Walt trying to protect his family and Jesse's dire state. He's cooking meth as a slave and failed to escape, despite his slick attempts. In return, Jesse was forced to watch his girlfriend Andrea get shot in the head. As for Walt, he tries to give Walt Jr. money so that the family can stand on their feet, but Walt Jr. refuses the offer and flips out on him. It's clear that the series finale -- a 75-minute episode -- will contain lots of drama and may or may not give viewers closure. The show is notoriously ruthless in killing off characters, whether they be innocent or loved, as viewers saw Hank get shot in the head in the last episode. While viewers can hope that Skylar and the family are spared, the simple truth is that Jesse, Walt and his entire family are at risk of getting killed.
The past few episodes have been leading up to the fact that Walt and Jess are no longer united and are no longer "family." The question now is if Walt and Jesse will be able to unify over their respective hatred or if their individual vendettas will place a target on each other's backs. Logically, it won't be hard to see Walt and Jesse working together to kill their nemesis and then finding one turning on the other. In the same train of thought, after everything that has gone down -- with Jesse snitching on Walt and Walt admitting he let Jesse's girlfriend die -- it seem unlikely that the two will be able to let the past go and move on. Regardless, a Walt-Jesse showdown is inevitable and finding out who ends up dying will be one of the most awaited moments on the show.
"It's an amazing ending," says RJ Mitt, who plays Walt Jr. "It really was an inevitable ending. It was fun and I'm happy with it. I think everyone's going to really enjoy it." What exactly RJ Mitt means by "amazing ending" and "inevitable" is subject to interpretation, as Walt's life can be destroyed in a few different ways. Walt could be killed, which would be fitting, or he could live and have to live with the consequences of losing Jesse, his family, Hank and everything he had in his life.
