I know, it’s just a TV show. And all this is tiresome for those of you who don’t watch it. But the characters and story really are Shakespearean. I hate AMC for cynically breaking the final season into two mini-seasons and delaying the conclusion until next summer, but guess what? I won’t be missing any episodes next summer. I don’t care if the ending is not what I now hope it will be. I trust these writers. Like Mike, they are extremely competent and not given to frivolity. Whatever happens, it’s going to be convincing.
It’s been a dark ride this season, hasn’t it? I have a feeling the finale next week will not show us how Walt made it to New Hampshire, and what he’s doing with an M60 machine gun in the trunk. I have a feeling we haven’t seen the last of Lydia, but are about to. And I have a feeling Jesse and Skylar may find they have something in common after all. How about you?
