The craziest prediction I can think of is that Elliot and Gretchen adopt Brock and die soon after due to Walt ricin poisoning them.

I think the DEA finds the Walt DVD and arrests Marie as a conspirator in Hank's meth empire.

I think Walt kills the Nazis but Jesse is already dead via suicide.

I don't have a guess as to how Walt ends up.

Pretty much the opposite of most series. Where the earlier seasons of most other great dramas were the best and fizzled a bit as they went on. I think BB has become a better show as Walt's spiral has developed.



You're fucking nuts.

And by "fucking nuts", I mean 100% right.

Of all the heavily contrived plot devices/character motivations in BB, I think Flynn being pissed at Walt is about as far from one of them as possible. Objectively, he's a fucking asshole that deserves to die. His son SHOULD be more than pissed at him. His son is not part of his 'mafia'.

In fairness, Walt (as written and performed) is a bit all over the place. He would play more thoroughly believable if he had a mental illness.

Personally, I believe this is because Cranston evokes empathy in the way he plays the scenes. Not quite ever selling the total ruthlessness, but only in certain scenes. I've never quite bought him as evil genius because of this. I think he's definitely soft. And I think we might see that in the series finale w/r/t to his potential dealing with Jessie.

Cobbler is looking for some potential light at the end of the tunnel and as far I'm concerned this is where it would be. The dramatic irony of Walt 'saving' Jessie, intentionally or unintentionally. And if I was writing it, I would do it intentionally (after some extremely awkward confrontation). A strangely redemptive scene and one last time for everyone to ask "am I really supposed to hate this guy or not?" In the same manner Walt made that phone call and tried to get Skylar off the hook. Sure, Walt wants Jessie dead but he was never willing to do it himself. And let's not forget, for all intents and purposes, this is his other 'son'. Walt 'saving' him despite Jessie loathing his guts (and needing his help) has all the ingredients of the kind of conflicted, complicated drama that the show goes for every time. So I think maybe it happens.

that's pretty good

I don't hate Jesse, I just prefer that the writers stay true to the character

this series has been as good as it is, based primarily on the strength of the writing. Watching parts of the marathon, there was a period, after Jane died that Jesse got sober for about 4,5? episodes seemed like he could get his life, a life on track. Well, it did not last long. Looking back, time and time again Walt had gone out of his way to protect and help Jesse. They have written Walt, first as a dying man trying to leave a financial windfall for his family, then next as ego driven meth manufacturer. But the family man has always been the dominant person, even is season 5. Walt would have given up everything, the 80 million to save Hank, and taken the fall and died in jail to protect Hank (Jesse) and Walt's family. Why did he finally change on Jesse? Because Jesse put Walt's family in danger for their lives and for sure his flipping would put Skyler in jail and leave Jr and Holly in effect orphans.

And why, over Brock being made sick so Jesse would get off his ass before Gus killed Walt and his family. I have no idea what the writers will do with this last 75 minutes. But Walt leaving Jesse alive to be a witness to put Skyler in prison makes no sense. And if Jesse told Walt he was sorry, Walt would be a fool to trust him. Why? because he is an addict. and sometime down the road he will get high and spill all, like he did with Jane.

I suppose Lydia could have Skyler taken out, because, "she saw my face."
That would put Walt on Lydia and Uncle Jack's crew. With Skyler dead, less need for Jesse to die. I always expected Walt to be taken out by his cancer. Most everyone I know has gone out within 6 months to 2 years max.
Not everyone gets the Steve Job's slow ride.

Other than a relapse around the end of Season 3 and beginning of Season 4, hasn't Jesse been clean since the second season finale?

I had a dream that Walter, dying after the final confrontation with the Nazis, was able to free Jesse and give him the lotto ticket with coordinates to Hank and Gomez. He asked Jesse to tell the DEA what happened so he would be cleared of the murders, which would also take pressure off of his family. Jesse goes off and leaves Walt to die in peace....

All valid. I was just searching for a theory that had a ray of light.

Looking pretty bleak otherwise.

So long as Walt and Jessie don't turn out to be Lumberjacks at the end of the finale, this should be good!
