SPOILERS FOR THE BREAKING BAD SERIES FINALE. You’ve been warned.
“I did it for me…. I was alive.”
So much of Walter White’s (Bryan Cranston) Mr. Chips to Scarface journey has been caged with idea that Walter was doing everything for his family. It’s much like the idea that I highlighted a few weeks ago about his Batman-esque “no killing family rule” – the origin of Heisenberg in so many ways came from a place of gray morality for Walter, a justification that was the weakest of crutches as the show progressed.
As a viewer, it’s been clear to me for a while that Walter made every choice because he wanted to do so. And last night finally provided closure to all that.
It’s always been personal for Walt. It’s the thrill, the excitement, and because he was good at being bad.
