Breaking Bad RECAP 9/29/13: Series Finale “Felina”

All good things must come to an end and tonight sadly, AMC’s popular drama BREAKING BAD comes to an end.  On tonight’s series finale it is going to get emotional, as we’ve journeyed alongside Walter White (Bryan Cranston) since the beginning. We’ve experienced his struggles; we’ve watched him triumph; and, while Walter’s fate seems certain, you never know.  Did you watch last week penultimate episode?  If you want to catch up before tonight’s show, we have a full and detailed recap, right here for you!

On last week’s episode it was intense as the show is rushing full steam ahead to the finish line.  Walt was relocated to a cabin in New Hampshire. After being interrogated by the DEA, Skyler was threatened by Todd not to talk about Lydia. Jesse tried to escape, but was caught. He’s then held bound and gagged in a van and taken to Andrea’s house where Todd kills her in front of him. Walt calls Walter Jr, but Walter Jr. gets enraged and hung up the phone. The police encircle Walt’s location, but he has already left.

On tonight’s show the finale episode is entitled “Felina,” which is obviously an anagram for the word finale. AMC hasn’t released much in way of the show’s synopsis either, other than a brief one line that reads, “The series finale.” Seems like they’re trying to keep this conclusion locked down and sealed tight.

Celeb Dirty Laundry will be covering all the drama of this series finale and you don’t want to miss this highly acclaimed television show featuring these top-notch actors. Prepare for the final Breaking Bad sprint to the finish line tonight and join us for our live recap of Breaking Bad at 9PM EST!  If you are curious what is going to happen tonight we have a sneak peek video and some spoilers for your enjoyment right here. 

RECAP: Walter gets into a car and has a package with him, he puts it on the other seat and takes out a screwdriver from the glove compartment and reaches into the car; with it. Walter is freezing and notices the police are right behind him; he sits there and waits for the flashing blue and red lights to go away. He just keeps repeating that he wants to get home, Walter then just sits there in the cold; he takes the screw driver and finds the keys to the car when putting down the mirror.

Walter White drive up to a gas station in the middle of nowhere to fill up; he opens the trunk of the car to take out and take his medication. Walter goes to a pay phone and asks to speak with a woman named Susan. He introduces himself as David from the New York Times, he asks for a photo for both Mr. and Mrs. Schwartz asking when they’ll be home; they have changed their address and gets it from the person on the phone. Walter then leaves his watch on the phone.

You see both Mr. and Mrs. Schwartz walking up to their house and Walter was watching from a distance on a bench; they walk inside their house and Walter then goes and closes the door to the front. Walter then walks up to the next set of doors and opens it, he takes a little look around the house and then walks on over to where they are talking in the kitchen; Mrs. Schwartz walks in and doesn’t notice Walter when turning on the fire but turns to see him and screams. Walter say hello to Elliot and Gretchen telling them their new house is nice.

Walter says they must have one great view; Gretchen questions why he’s there and says that he saw them on TV. They question if he’s going to hurt them but he says he’s going to show them something inside of his car; the three of them can walk on over to it. Elliot has a knife and Walter tells him he will need a bigger one if they are going to go that way.

Walter brings in a bunch of stack of money with them and asks Gretchen to make sure none of it fell of the table; it’s 9 millions dollars and wants them to give it all to his children. He tells them on his sons 18th birthday that they will give it to him and that he can do whatever he wants with it; Elliot asks why they should do it. Walter says his family hates him and wont take his money, he believes that they would think of nothing of two rich people giving to them as charity would be overlooked. Walter tells them to do it and if they spend a single dime of their own money on his family; only his. Elliot asks what happens next; Walter tells him they shake on it and he leaves. Walter shakes Elliot and Gretchen’s hand and then before he walks out he asks if he can trust them. Elliot says he can and Walter has two red dot sights on them; he tells them that he spent money on the two best hit men and that whatever happens to him tomorrow they will still be out there keeping tabs and if his children do not get the money a countdown will begin; they will randomly be killed.Walter grabs them and tells them to cheer up and they can make it right; Walter then leaves the house as Gretchen starts to cry.

People to come to his car; they run over and get in. It’s Badger and Skinny Pete who only had laser pointers; Badger questions about doing this all. Skinny Pete says it was shady and Walter shows them wads of cash; the two except it and feel better. Walter asks them about the blue meth still being sold, they say that it is and they believe it’s him.

Skyler says she doens’t want his money, Walter said he spent it all getting there and all he has to give her; he tells her to call the DEA about him being there and how he gave her the ticket.
